Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won will soon be making his Valorant return: the suspended Sentinels star claims he will be back streaming on Twitch “no matter what” as Riot’s investigation into sexual abuse allegations leveled by his former partner Cleo ‘cle0h’ Hernandez continues.
Sinatraa was accused of sexually assaulting cle0h in March 2021.
The former Overwatch League MVP turned leading Sentinels Valorant star allegedly forced himself upon Hernandez, who claimed she “lived in constant fear” during their nine-month relationship.

Sinatraa was quickly dismissed from Sentinels Valorant mid-way through the Valorant Champions Tour, with Riot also suspending him pending further investigation.
However, almost three months on, Won could be set to make his return — at least to streaming. After laying low following the allegations, Sinatraa shared images of himself playing Valorant in his personal discord.
Sinatraa followed up the May 7 images by confirming he would be back “soon.”
He has also appeared on now-girlfriend Emmyuh’s stream multiple times in recent weeks, hinting that he has ambitions to return to streaming on Twitch despite the ongoing Riot investigation.
Emmuyh has backed up these claims, stating Sinatraa could return sometime in May. That means “soon” could potentially be really soon.
On May 8, the suspended star appeared to have confirmed that he will in fact “be back streaming” on Twitch in the very near future, “no matter what.”
As for playing Valorant at the pro level, that remains up in the air. He touched on that possibility briefly during Emmyuh’s stream again, admitting he “doesn’t know if I’m gonna return [to] pro” due to a number of moving parts.
Riot Games’ investigation into the Sinatraa allegations are still ongoing.
He is banned from all Valorant Champions Tour competition, including coming with Sentinels to the upcoming VCT Stage 2 Masters in Iceland.
