xQc Forced To Move Out Over ‘Daily Police Swattings’
Felix "xQc" Lengyel is not only known as one of the most popular streamers around, but as one of the mouthiest. We know the Canadian content creating superstar can hold his own, xQc has revealed he's been subjected to daily raids from the police. Things are so bad, xQc has apparently had to move out of his home.
The likes of xQc and other big names like Imane "Pokimane" Anys, Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, and Nick "NICKMERCS" Kolcheff intentionally put themselves in the limelight, but just like any celebrity, there's an argument they have a right to a private life.
It seems xQc's notoriety has gotten the better of him, with his home being subjected to multiple police raids.
Why has xQc had to move?
Discussing the reasons behind a potential move back to Canada, xQc admitted, "The main reason why I wanted to move back to Canada a month ago, we were getting raided by the police station at rates that absolutely made no f*****g sense. Almost every day the police came to our house with the full squad. Because of f*****g idiots. I was genuinely scared that I was GOING to die".
Although xQc didn't reveal what happened next, he said things got "way worse" and prompted him to seriously consider packing his bags. “It didn’t make sense to me", said Lengyel. "I just got so scared I just wanted to go home. I just wanted to go back to Canada. And then some other stuff happened that was worse, way worse, and I was just like I want to get the f**k out of here".
The reveal just comes after leaked DMs between xQc and Tyler "Trainwrecks" Niknam hinted Lengyel could move back to Canada in the midst of gambling sponsorship drama. xQc is keen to distance himself from any idea that gambling streams could see him move home - instead reiterating he's been having a tough time.
Lengyel said he didn't want to be branded a "victim", however allegations he was moving back to Canada for gambling gains put his "back against the wall". He's decided to come clean with his ever-growing fan base.
How did xQc cover up his police raids?
For sceptics questioning when these multiple raids took place, it turns out xQc had a novel way of hiding them from his viewers. Lengyel continued, "The police here are very professional. After the first raid, they would give us a heads up, and they would clear the house. And I found a way to remain on stream and not say anything at all. And nobody ever noticed, and the streams kept on going".
Apparently, his cue was looking off-screen and mentioning food. xQc clarified, "Any time I looked to my left, and I was like 'the food, yeah,' sometimes there were full f*****g police squads in my house". So there you have it, xQc's not-so-secret police raids have been exposed.
There were already questions when Lengyel moved in with Chance "Sodapoppin" Morris earlier this month. Although xQc brushed it off as "house renovations", it became more suspicious that he was battling something in real life. Now, it looks like we've got to the bottom of the mystery. It's unclear whether xQc still plans on moving back to Canada, however, he seems to be coping okay in Texas right now.
