Twitch streamer Pokimane has revealed that her departure from the group’s home was because of trust issues with fellow member Fedmyster.
Earlier in June, fans of Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys believed that she would be leaving the social entertainment group Offline TV.
While that is not the case, she did choose to move out of the shared house that the group lives in. At the time, she stated that her decision had nothing to do with the group itself or its members.
However, in a short livestream she admitted that one of the members, Federico Michael Gaytan, known as Fedmyster, was a major contributing factor to her decision.
According to Pokimane, she had developed serious trust issues with Fedmyster, and claims that he had begun telling lies about her behind her back, such as falsely telling people that the two were in a relationship.
‘He would lie a lot. I had a lot of trust issues with him over the years and we would fight a lot about things,’ she said. ‘If he was in the wrong, he would ignore my existence in the house. He would literally refuse to acknowledge me.’
According to Pokimane, he would then lie about the situation to their friends and attempt to make her ‘sound crazy’, something she didn’t find out until discussing her situation with the rest of the Offline TV members.‘
I became aware of the fact he would lie about me a lot and create narratives in his favour that would insinuate a lot of negative things about me. This drove everyone around me away, and it’s baffling that I only just found this out’, she said.
Despite initially attempting to ‘sort things out’ with him, her relationship with Fedmyster continued to deteriorate.
‘I don’t know if that was his intention, I’d like to think it was more an inconsiderate or careless thing, but ultimately he drove everyone around me away from me,’ she said.
‘I started freaking crying at the intervention, and after, just out of mourning [for all] the years of friendships with these people I lost because of him.’
Her words come only a few days after two of the Offhouse TV members, Lily ‘LilyPichu’ Ki and Yvonne ‘Yvonnie’ Ng, came forward with sexual misconduct allegations against Fedmyster.
Pokimane has corroborated these incidents and, prior to her comments, Fedmyster was removed from the group and the house.
Although he doesn’t mention the names of anyone specific, Fedmyster has apologised for his recent conduct on Twitter, where he stated, ‘I fully understand the importance of having their voices heard, and I believe I should take a step back, give them space and listen to their story’.
‘I’ve made it a point this year to be better, and as I often mention I’m trying to take more responsibility in my life’, he added.‘I want to make it clear that my intentions were never to act maliciously or predatorily. I am flawed, I have issues that impede my friendships, issues with myself, but I am not a predator and I never wanted this to happen.’
