Angry, PhantomL0rd ended up suing Twitch 600 days later. This dispute might have started the unraveling of the power couple in the eyes of the gaming world.
By the end of the summer 2016, PhantomL0rd deleted his Twitch account. He hasn’t recovered much in the gaming world since then. As we’re about to find out, he didn’t recover socially much, either.

Around 2017, content featuring the two of these gaming stars started to slow down. This lack of new videos caused people to whisper about the status of PhantomL0rd and Dinglederper.
Once speculation got too rampant, Tory made a social media statement about her and PhantomL0rd, stating, “we are no more together.”
