Blake Gray’s Brother Austin Gray Accused of Making Rape Threat to TikToker Ivy Wren
TikToker Ivy Wren alleges getting rape threats from Blake Gray
TikTok influencer Ivy Wren has accused Austin Gray, the brother of fellow TikTok star Blake Gray, of making rape threats against her.
In a recent TikTok video posted on March 16, 2023, Ivy detailed that Austin allegedly made rape threats to her. She captioned the video, “This was in February 2022, and I have waited to make this because I wanted to protect his privacy but honestly people need to be aware.”
The TikTok star detailed her experience with Austin, claiming that they had been in a casual relationship and had gone out drinking with a group of friends.
According to Ivy, on the night, she and Austin were in an Uber with one of her girlfriends. She and her girlfriend were all having a casual conversation with the driver. “We were like oh your wife is such a lucky and being like friendly flirty with him,” she said.

Ivy noted that when they all came out of the Uber, Austin slammed the door as hard as he could and began yelling at her for embarrassing him.
Austin allegedly screamed at Ivy in the parking lot of her apartment complex, saying, “Why the fuck did you say that, you are embarrassing me.”
Ivy tried to calm him down, but he continued to freak out, causing her friend to become terrified and hide in another room.
Ivy described how Austin was highly drunk and that she was concerned about his ability to drive home safely. She took his keys and hid them, which made him even angrier.
He stormed into her apartment and started breaking things. Ivy’s friend decided to leave, feeling uncomfortable with the situation, and things escalated from there.
Ivy revealed that she had confided in Austin about being a survivor of multiple sexual assaults, but he had turned it around and used it against her, saying that if she had let other people do that to her, she should let him do it too. He then allegedly threatened to rape her.
Her words on the TikTok video were, “I had opened up to him [Austin} being a survivor of multiple sexual assaults which he then turns around and throws up in my face and basically says, ‘Why would you let other people do that and won’t let me do that,’ and he fallout says that I am going to rape[whisper] you.”
Ivy played an audio clip in the TikTok video where Austin can be heard asking for his keys and her responding that he cannot drive drunk. his voice can then be heard saying, “I am gonna rape you.”
The video has since gone viral, with many users expressing their support for Ivy and calling for Austin to be held accountable for his actions. Some fans seem to support Austin too. Neither Austin nor Blake has commented publicly on the accusations. Austin has recently set his Instagram account to private.
One of the fans showed concern for Ivy as she commented, “wow.. i’m sorry that happened.. drunk or not how do those words come out of your mouth”
While another fan supported Austin. He wrote, “I know this is not an excuse but he was drunk and probably would say anything at that point to get his keys.. she was trying to help him by refusing to give him his keys got it.. but why record someone when they are not in a right state of mind?”
“… just my POV and this is not me defending him, I don’t even know the dude.. I’m just saying before y’all jump on this bandwagon.. consider everything from all POV,” he added.
Is Emma Chamberlain Charging $10K for an Instagram DM? Know the Truth
$10,000 for a DM?!
Emma Chamberlain and her brand are under fire, and the influencer is facing massive backlash online.
It was recently revealed that Chamberlain was allegedly charging $10,000 for a personalized Instagram DM. This sent fans and followers of her into a frenzy mode, complaining that the whole ordeal was irrational.
They noted that Chamberlain was misusing her fans and that it was a scam to charge $10,000 for a simple personalized message on Instagram. After the influencer came to know about the backlash, she and her team shared a statement.
Here is everything we know about it.
Emma Chamberlain allegedly charged $10,000 for Instagram DM
On March 18, 2023, Layla Saliba posted a screenshot of Chamberlain’s site on Saturday with the opportunity to purchase a “Personal Thank You Note From Emma in Instagram DM!” for $10,000. The screenshot also revealed the store’s option for monthly payments, which offered a payment schedule of $902.58 for a year.
She questioned why Chamberlain was demanding 10K for an Instagram DM and noted that it was insane to do so. Soon, the tweet went viral and started spreading around like wildfire.
Since then, Chamberlain’s web store has been under development. Following the tweet, Chamberlain’s reps sent a statement to BuzzFeed News, calling the allegations that she was selling DMs for $10,000 “false and inaccurate.”
Chamberlain was unaware of the post, according to her reps, who claimed it may have been a test. Buzzfeed News also reached out to Saliba, who said she initially believed the $10,000 advertisement for the message on Chamberlain’s website was an error.
She said, “Nothing against her [Chamberlain], but I’m a WOC working multiple jobs in grad school and I just got tired of someone who was very wealthy complain about how hard their life is,”
The response from Emma Chamberlain and her brand
Soon after the backlash, Chamberlain’s merchandise company, Cozak Inc, issued a statement on their website. They claimed that it was incorrect how the influencer was charging $10,000 for a personalized Instagram DM.
Cozack was secretly testing a potential rewards program tied to her merch in 2018. In testing, they produced an extravagant reward level that was never activated and wasn’t meant to be.
As they were only intended for internal testing and not for sale or reward, Chamberlain never implemented any of these reward ideas. They believed that material was activated and indexed by Google’s SEO indexing engine, then found by a person who started disseminating it online.
Cozak asserted that this was never disclosed to the public, and it was never intended to be bought or sold. They defended Chamberlain and said she did not realize this was that the test program was never visible on the home page or product listing site.
At last, they wrote, “With the internet’s tendency to create false narratives around sensationalized stories we wanted to provide you with the truth firsthand and from the source. The site is currently down for internal review.”
Chamberlain also gave a statement regarding the situation to E! News on March 21, 2023. She explained that when she got comments about selling DMs for $10,000, she believed it was a scam.

She never offered to sell a DM, so she thought the claims were fake. She said, “People were saying this was for sale on my merch site, so I checked the site to see if it had been hacked and couldn’t find anything out of the ordinary.”
Regardless, she reached out to Cozack to look deeper into the matter. She said, “I immediately got in touch with my merch company Cozack who further investigated and put the site under construction while looking into the issue.”
Emma Chamberlain’s net worth
Chamberlain initially started with YouTube in 2017, after which her fame skyrocketed. Soon, her quirky yet fashionable style caught the eyes of designers and brands who endorsed her.
She then became the “it girl” for Vogue and many other brands. At just 21, Chamberlain has a massive influence in the fashion and makeup industry.
Similarly, she has her own brands as well. As of 2023, her estimated net worth is approximately $12 million. Her net worth includes endorsements, fashion brands, her company, podcast, writings, YouTube, and public appearances.
Nick Lachey Ordered to Attend Anger Management and AA After Paparazzi Incident in LA
“I clearly overreacted. I’ve been in this game long enough to know that their antics are sadly part of the deal. Stupid of me. Done,” he previously tweeted.
Nick Lachey, the 98 Degrees singer and former reality TV star, has been ordered to attend anger management and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings after his infamous paparazzi incident in Los Angeles last year.
As reported by TMZ, Nick lost his temper after he spotted a woman filming him and his wife, Vanessa, following a night out at the popular celebrity haunt, Mastro’s in Beverly Hills. The incident was captured on camera, and it showed Nick reaching for the woman’s phone, clearly agitated by her actions.
Although Lachey was never charged with a crime, the L.A. County D.A. has a diversion program that allows offenders to avoid prosecution by attending rehabilitation programs. In Nick’s case, he won’t be charged with assault and battery if he completes the court-ordered AA and anger management courses.
The woman at the center of the incident, Jody Santos, spoke to the Daily Mail about the altercation, stating that Nick has had plenty of time to apologize for his behavior. Santos further said that Nick should have thanked her for the free publicity instead of trying to bust his fist through her car window.
In response to the incident, Nick issued a statement apologizing for his actions and stating that he should have known better. The 48-year-old star has been open about his struggles with alcohol in the past, and this latest incident could be seen as a wake-up call for him to seek professional help.
At the time, the singer had also addressed his actions in a tweet after the incident.
“Last night, after enjoying a great dinner with my wife and our dear friend, the paparazzi harassed us as we walked back to our hotel,” he tweeted. “I clearly overreacted. I’ve been in this game long enough to know that their antics are sadly part of the deal. Stupid of me. Done.”
Nick rose to fame in the late 1990s as a member of the boy band, 98 Degrees. He later starred in the popular reality TV show, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, with his then-wife, Jessica Simpson.
The couple divorced in 2006, and Nick has since remarried Vanessa Minnillo, with whom he shares three children.
