Most of the issues addressed in her video revolve around another Hype House cofounder, Thomas Petrou, so lemme give you the SparkNotes of it all.
Daisy said she met Thomas while he was part of Jake Paul's content house, Team 10.
But shortly after they met, Thomas was fired from Team 10, so Daisy hired him as her full-time photographer and editor and they became best friends.
Eventually, Thomas started talking to Daisy about making a content house with popular creators on TikTok like Chase Hudson (aka Lil Huddy), Alex Warren, Kouvr Annon, and others.
After they all hung out and agreed to make a content house, they found a place and paid a deposit.
According to Daisy, she and Chase each put down $18,000 for the deposit; Thomas, Alex, and Kouvr put down around $5,000 each. (And this will come back up later.)
Things first start to get iffy when the New York Times came to their house for an interview and Daisy said Chase and Thomas took credit for founding the Hype House.
According to Daisy, this became a recurring issue as Thomas and Chase continued taking credit for founding the Hype House in press interviews when she wasn't present.
In her video, Daisy said she then got a call from her lawyer/manager that Chase was saying in articles that he put down ALL of the money for the Hype House.
Daisy also claimed that Thomas didn't give any of the other Hype House members access to ANY of the Hype House social media or email accounts.
She stated she and other members didn't know what brand deals were coming and if they were paid. Apparently Thomas said the house made no money, despite him purchasing things that cost thousands of dollars on multiple occasions.
Daisy also alleged that Thomas would do things in the house without asking her permission even though she'd be legally liable as a lease holder.
Eventually, she felt that Thomas was cutting her out of the Hype House and when her lawyer reached out to him about adding structure within the group, Thomas allegedly said, "I'm just more of a businessman, and like, girls like Daisy, she's just another hot Instagram model with a shelf life."
Feeling like she was going to be cut out, Daisy wanted to claim her share in the company and filed for the Hype House trademark.
When she confronted Thomas about her percentages, Daisy said that he told her the $18,000 she put down for the house was just so a bunch of friends could live together and had nothing to do with the Hype House as a business.
After that, Daisy said Thomas unfollowed her on all social media and had the other Hype House members unfollow and block her to make it look like she was no longer part of the group.
The video ended with Daisy actually thanking Thomas for teaching her to stand up for herself and for everything she learned about how to handle yourself in business.
Lastly, according to Forbes, Daisy is suing Thomas and Chase for striking deals without her, claiming to be the only founders, and exiling her from the Hype House.
So there! You're now all caught up with the drama of today's TikToking youths and I'm sure this won't be the last of it, so until then, byeeee👋.
