Last week, TikTok celebrity Quenlin Blackwell surprised enthusiasts by revealing she had been staying with the music producer from his home — just before later creating an appropriately named series for the social networking platform titled, “Living along with Diplo: The Series. ”

The particular roommate situation raised several eyebrows, as the social media celebrity is only 19 years old in order to Diplo’s 41. Some had been offended by the idea of the relationship between the two; other people simply found the Major Lazer artist co-habitating having a teenager inappropriate regardless of whether these were a couple.
Upon Monday, the musician (real name Jones Wesley Pentz ) posted a statement regarding the situation on Twitter , explaining to followers how they’re NOT expressing the same address:
“OK so I lease one of my properties in order to @quenblackwell. And yes I personally use the studio that is because building. Her social media can be sarcastic and chaotic and am can see you can get a twisted concept but there is nothing but the friendship between us. ”
This individual further distanced himself through any idea of “living with” the teen by calling themself her “landlord”:
“As a homeowner I don’t really consider age group or race as a certification. U just gotta pay out security deposit. And do not poke holes in the wall space or ruin my carpeting. ”
We’re not sure what’s “sarcastic” about Quen repeating, many times in multiple ways, that will she was “living along with Diplo. ” Not to mention that even though he claims to be “renting” the house to her, she specifically published over the weekend about not paying out rent.
Is the fact that supposedly sarcastic, too?
For her component, Quen (who has submitted about her boyfriend) distributed on her own Twitter accounts:
“i’m an adult. i’m not becoming groomed. platonic relationships can be found. i’ve been living in charge of over a year…i’d rather crack both of my hip and legs and be forced to walk compared to pursue diplo romantically plus he’d rather choke. he is barley in LA bc he is so busy. diplo offers given me the opportunity as well as the security to create. diplo great team are my advisors in LA and they are the safety net. diplo and his group have saved me several times from the weirdos within LA. my parents trust your pet. i trust him. y’all are making me feel icky. diplo is my UNA dad.. nothing more. ”
“LA dad” doesn’t fill all of us with confidence as a title tbh. And if all of us were the girl parents, the idea that a songs producer in La Una Land was letting the girl live rent-free in his house would be a big red flag. Simply sayin’.
When gurl says she’s OKAY, we guess we should get her word??

Despite denials associated with any inappropriate conduct with all the teen, the suspicious circumstance has provoked further overview into the Grammy winner’s previous. In one resurfaced tweet through 2010 (which has considering that been deleted), the then-32 year old wrote:
“girls born within the 90s i hav to prevent sleepin with u”
