Pokimane Boyfriend, Dating, Kid
As of August 2020, while Pokimane didn’t confess to dating, the infamous Youtuber “LeafyIsHere” claimed that she had a boyfriend. He made fun of her in one of his videos and asked his fans to share the video with the hashtag #pokimaneboyfriend.
Soon joining Leafy, Keemstar also insisted that Pokimane had a secret boyfriend. This convinced most of the fans that Pokimane did have a boyfriend and was hiding the fact.
However, without denying the allegation, Pokimane cleverly responded where she tweeted a picture of herself with a Barack Obama cardboard captioned,
“it’s time to come clean. #pokimaneboyfriend.”
After the response, Pokimane shared that she would not share her personal life online and choose to be “AFK” for a while from August 6, 2020.
Since “boyfriends” and “kids” weren’t well received in the streamers community, maybe Pokimane was laying low till drama cools off. She had already lost many subscribers form Twitch due to the controversy.
