Valkyrae reveals an ‘incredible’ plot twist with the crush of former GameStop employees

YouTube star Valkyrae opened up about one of her past relationships before becoming an internet star in a story that 100 Thieves founder Nadeshot called “incredible”.

Before becoming a famous YouTube streamer over 3.6 million subscribers, Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter worked at GameStop.

The 100 Thieves co-owner, voice actor and Gucci model has come a long way since these days, which she recently opened up about in a video with fellow influencers Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag and Leslie “Fuslie” Fu.

During their conversation, Valkyrae revealed that she actually had a crush on one of her colleagues at GameStop at the time. Her manager finally “put pressure” on the two to make a date.

Valkyrae is one of the biggest streamers on the internet.

“We dated for two months,” she explained. “We would just walk around and hang out. We were friends. Actually friends.”

However, she couldn’t help but notice that her “boyfriend” wasn’t exactly as loving as she’d thought during those two months. “He didn’t even want to hold my hand,” Valkyrae said.

“After two months, he finally kissed me,” she continued. “We had a conversation the next week and he was like, ‘Uh, I just want you to know that I’m really confused and I’m pretty sure I’m not into women.'”

Before starring in a music video with Machine Gun Kelly, Valkyrae worked at GameStop — where she fell quite in love with one of her co-workers.

In the end, Hofstetter was relieved that she could help him and wished him all the best.

“I was like, ‘Oh you know what, I could definitely say it, and that’s okay!'” she recalled. “‘That’s great. That’s fantastic. I’m glad I could help you figure that out.’ I actually helped this guy discover himself.”

“Wow, Rae,” Nadeshot said of the story. “It’s actually incredible. you help the cause I like this!”

She went on to explain that her former crush has now found a boyfriend and is “really happy”.

For now, Rae herself has claimed that she’s currently single — something she credited to her potential as an aspiring voice actress in a hilarious conversation with her streamer LilyPichu. Valkyrae reveals an ‘incredible’ plot twist with the crush of former GameStop employees
