Aspiring rapper and YouTuber S.dot, aka Dotarachi, died following heart surgery, his girlfriend, Holly confirmed in a Facebook post on Wednesday. He was 27.

"I don't know what to do," said Holly. "I kinda feel sad but I try not to feel sad because I don't want you to feel sad," she told S.dot, before breaking down in tears.

"I feel like I don't know how to comfort you, so it's kinda like... I know you was saying, 'be realistic,' but ... what do you say, you know? I guess I just want you to go into it with a positive spirit."

S.dot responded, "Everybody else on the outside looking in and be like, you gon' be good? You gon' be good?' But what if I don't be good? ... What if I'm not good?"

He then told Holly he loved her and she should move on without him.

YouTuber Kevin Samuels passed away on Thursday morning at age 56, his family confirmed.

News of his untimely death swept through Black Twitter like a tornado. His name was a trending topic on Twitter and many tweets featured Black women celebrating his demise.

Samuels allegedly earned millions from his misogynistic videos on YouTube where he had a following of over 1.4 million subscribers.

Samuels spent his money lavishly on designer clothes, shoes, cologne, and Rolexes. He owned a fleet of cars including a Lamborghini, Mercedes AMG G 63, and a Tesla Model X.

Samuels worked a 9-5 job before promoting himself as a lifestyle consultant and coach. He reportedly charged his clients a fee of $1,400 an hour.

Samuels reviewed cologne on his YouTube channel in the early days before going viral during the pandemic in 2020.

The self-proclaimed "image consultant" and relationship guru made his fortune by disparaging Black women and spewing misogynistic stereotypes about their weight and looks.

He went easier on his male followers by encouraging them to achieve the lofty goal of high value men.

Samuels was a hit with insecure men who modeled their own personalities after his.

Days before he died, The Root published a scathing article titled "When Will Kevin Samuels Finally Be Canceled?."

In the article, writer Candace McDuffie asked, "Why does Kevin Samuels continue to have a platform when it's built on the backs of women he hates?"

She noted that Samuels called women who are 35 and unmarried "leftovers".

On Thursday, McDuffie changed the title of her article to "Controversy Follows Kevin Samuels."

Samuels was twice divorced and leaves behind an adult daughter. He was born in Atlanta, and will be buried during a private service in Oklahoma City.

Fans of YouTube stars Ken and De'arra are still trying to get over their breakup.

For years, their adoring fans lived vicariously through the popular YouTube couple, who split up last year amid cheating allegations.

I first learned of Ken and De'arra through blogger Michelle "ATLien" Brown, after they moved into the penthouse of her Buckhead hi-rise a few years ago.

Ken and De'arra started their YouTube channel in 2015 and they eventually grew their following to over 7 million subscribers.

As their popularity increased, problems began to creep into their relationship. Mainly due to Ken's wandering eyes.

Friends warned them not to move in together. Sadly, they didn't listen.

Unfortunately, life happens and they learned the hard way that puppy love, aka dopamine, doesn't last forever.

First, came the rumors that Ken was cheating on De'arra. They struggled to maintain the image of their perfect relationship because their income depended on them being together - at least publicly.

Their last video upload was in 2021. The couple split last year after he proposed to her in 2020. Now they host separate YouTube channels.

De'arra has just under 1 million subscribers on her YT channel, while Ken has barely 200,000 subs on his channel.

De'arra is barely recognizable now. The cute teenager has grown into a bitter woman who looks a decade older than her stated age of 26. She doesn't even sound the same. Did heartbreak make her voice change?

Anyway, watch as De'arra tries to convince her fans that "single life is amazing" in the video below.

YouTuber Tasha K grew her large following by dragging and insulting rapper Cardi B on a daily basis. Now a judge has ordered the vlogger to delete any and all mentions of the rapper from her social media.

That's a daunting task for the vlogger, real name Latasha Kebe, who mentioned Cardi in thousands of posts across all of her social media feeds.

Earlier this year, Tasha K lost a $3 million defamation lawsuit, which she is appealing. Despite losing the lawsuit, Tasha reportedly refused to take the old content down.

However, Cardi filed a motion asking a judge to force Tasha to remove all of her old content that mentions the rap star.

Tasha reportedly asked the judge for more time, since she built her career using Cardi's name. She has a few more days to delete all her old posts, an Atlanta judge ruled Monday.

"I felt really helpless and hopeless," said Cardi B," according to the Grio. "It was just constant harassment."

If Tasha wins her appeal, she might re-post all of the content. But, for now, she has to take it all down.

Rapper Bandman Kevo claims he had an affair with YouTube influencer Kayla Nicole Jones, who is suing producer Polow Da Don for breach of contract.

Kevo, 32, admits he took advantage of the much younger YouTuber to help his wife, Dyme, blow up on social media.

Young people are different in these Instagram streets today. They use sex to barter for clout on social media - with the full approval of their significant others.

It's difficult for the older generation to understand how young people slide between the sheets just for social media clout.

Kayla Nicole has over 5 million followers on her YouTube channel, so Kevo contacted her, and she allegedly flirted with him because he was "cute."

Kevo claims Kayla invited him over for sex on the first date.

Did I mention Kevo is a married man?

In an in-depth interview with Say Cheese on YouTube, the hip-hop star admitted he paid 20-year-old Kayla Nicole and had sex with her out of a sense of duty to help his wife increase her follow count.

"I was having sex with [Kayla] and giving her money... That is not my type of girl," Kevo said. "If it's gonna open up a door, I'm willing to do that... This can probably help out Dyme because [Kayla is] big [on social media]," he said.

Kevo asked Kayla to shout out his wife, Dyme, on her sizable YouTube platform. Eventually, Kayla and Dyme became friends and began hanging out.

But Kevo noticed that his wife's social media presence was not increasing.

"I said, Dyme, do you notice that y'all been talking every single day... you ain't got on her channel yet and she barely posts you," he asked his wife.

Kevo then accused Kayla of a fatal attraction attempt to break up his marriage to Dyme.

Kevo claims the police were called after Kayla tried to attempt suicide by jumping off a 42nd floor balcony.

Listen to the wild allegations below. This is more proof that men gossip more than females.

Popular YouTube influencer Kayla Nicole Jones filed a lawsuit against music producer Polow Da Don, alleging breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty, among other complaints.

According to court documents obtained by Sandrarose.com, the plaintiff allegedly began a sexual relationship with Polow, real name Jamal Jones, when she was only 18.

The plaintiff was 17 when she created her YouTube channel, Nicole TV, which grew to over 5.4 million subscribers.

Nicole released her song, "Late Nights" in 2019. The song created a buzz and attracted the attention of Polow, who sent her a DM about helping her career in the music industry.

During intimate pillow talks with the teen, Polow allegedly discussed terms of a recording agreement (Agreement) between her and Polow's record label, Zone 4.

Zone 4 was also named as a defendant in the lawsuit.

On the night before signing the Agreement with Zone 4, Polow allegedly spent the night with Nicole.

The next day, September 19, 2019, Polow drove Nicole to his recording studio where he illegally plied the underaged girl with alcoholic beverages while continuing to discuss the terms of the contract.

When the teenager asked Polow if her manager could review the Agreement, Polow allegedly refused and insisted that she sign the Agreement immediately.

She expressed concerns about sharing her YouTube revenue 50/50 with Polow. After much debate, she signed the Agreement, agreeing to keep 85% of the substantial ad revenue from her YouTube channel.

The complaint alleges that the teenager was "intoxicated" and she was not represented by an attorney at the time she signed the Agreement.

The complaint also alleged that Nicole was not paid an advance by Zone 4, and Polow eventually lost interest in her career after their sexual relationship ended.

Nicole wants relief from the court by releasing her from the Zone 4 Agreement. Additionally, plaintiff is requesting reasonable attorney's fees and expenses of no less than $25,000.

A judge granted a stay in discovery so the two parties can negotiate a settlement. The discovery stay ends next week.

Nicole is represented by Tanya Mitchell Graham, Esq., and Polow is represented by King & Ballow.

Antoine Dodson, best known for going viral in 2010 after he declared "Hide yo kids, hide yo wife" in a news interview -- is mourning the death of his mother.

Antoine tells TMZ that his mom, Jennifer, died Sunday at a hospital in Decatur, Alabama. Antoine said her death came as a shock because he thought she was doing better after recent health issues.

Antoine says his mom began having problems with her leg around the time he became Internet famous. Her leg was amputated a few months ago. An infection set in and she was transferred to the ICU, but Antoine says she was getting better, according to TMZ.

Sadly, Jennifer took a turn for the worse and Antoine got the call on Sept. 12 that his mom had passed. He tells TMZ doctors believe she died of heart failure.

Antoine, 35, is asking for donations to cover his mother's funeral expenses. He says because of the pandemic, he's strapped for cash and really needs help.

Antoine created a GoFundMe account to raise cash. As of Friday morning, over $6,000 was raised of his $9,000 goal.

He wrote in the summary:

"I'm not in a financial position to put my mom to rest and so I'm asking for your help, even if you can't I appreciate all the love and support coming, God bless us all!! Thank you."

Antoine renounced his homosexuality in 2013 and disappeared from the limelight.
 

An Alabama YouTuber went viral earlier this month when she caught a 30 pound catfish with her bare hand.

Hannah Barron is a popular Internet star with 340K subs on YouTube and nearly 1 million followers on Instagram.

Hannah has been noodling catfish for 4 years. Catfish noodling is a sport that requires skill, nerves of steel, and great teamwork.

A noodler dives underwater to reach a catfish hole and sticks his or her hand in the hole. The catfish latches onto the hand as a defensive maneuver and the noodler reaches through the fish's gill and yanks it out of the hole.

It helps if you can hold your breath underwater for about 60 seconds while noodling the catfish.

Catfish noodling is a sport practiced primarily in warm southern states where catfish the size of dogs are abundant.

Kevin Samuels booted reality TV personality Shekinah Jo off his show after she appeared on camera in total darkness.

"You gotta come into the light," he told her. But she refused, saying she feared he would rate her a "negative three."

"Well if you're a negative three then that's what it is," Samuels said before Shekinah responded, "But I'm not a negative three. I would never let you and no one else put me down."

Prince Williams/ATLPics.net

The conversation grew heated when Samuels told Shekinah he wouldn't lie to spare her feelings.

"Hey, calm down cutie," said Shekinah, pictured right with former friend Tameka "Tiny" Harris.

"Kick rocks b****," Samuels said, before ending the session.

Samuels then said, "You always wanna say something but you don't wanna deal with it."

Speaking about women in general, Samuels said:

"I'm tired of women wanting somebody to lie to them... Women like her have been coddled and lied to so much that the truth is offensive. So all they can do is laugh at it because it hurts too much because they know they've been lied to...

This is what it's come to... You are what you are. You ladies don't seem to like rankings, but you rank men. You are what you are. Like it or not... Y''all want somebody to tell you you're all 10s."

Mr. Samuels has grown a large following of mostly lonely women whom he berates and downgrades for clicks and views.

Samuels is a 51-year-old man who rates himself a "high value" nine out of 10. He has drawn criticism for rating Beyonce an 8 and calling women "b**ches."

YouTuber Kevin Samuels has a ton of haters on the Internet. Mr. Samuels has a large following of mostly women who live for his relationship advice.

Samuels is a 50-year-old man who considers himself to be a good catch. He makes a living on YouTube grading women based on their looks and how many children they have.

Recently, Samuels went live on YouTube and displayed his computer home screen while chatting with a woman on Zoom.

The woman complained that a "guy" in the Zoom chat was making her nervous.

Then the screen briefly displayed the "guy" laying on a bed. Based on the decor of the man's room and the dim lighting, it's obvious that the person was not in Samuel's home.

The person in the bed was someone on the Zoom chat. Samuels assured the woman that "he's gone" from the chat.

But the video went viral anyway, fueling the rumors that Samuels is homosexual.

According to MTO.com, Samuels was divorced from a woman in 2005 and he is (or was) paying child support for a daughter.

That doesn't mean he's straight, but it doesn't confirm all the rumors that he is homosexual either. And even if he was, that doesn't diminish him as a man.

According to London's Dailymail.com, Paul purchased the sprawling 15,000 sq. ft. mansion for $6.9 million when he was 20 in 2017.
