**During the events in this article, Kai went by the nicknames "Lainey" or "Lain" and did not yet identify as a trans man. The writing in this article will reflect Kai's current name and pronouns, but images, quotes, and videos will not.
Beck was a fan of Greg and Kai's who became a moderator for Greg's discord in the summer of 2017. Beck was labeled a Kai fangirl after she recorded and uploaded a song she wrote for Kai on July 26, 2017. (Source) The song has since been deleted, but a summary of the songs exists from an Anti-O blog: In her song “A Like-Song for Lainey” she says that she is “gay” for Taylor. And tries to win Taylor over. Says she wants to kiss Taylor and that she understands they’ve been hurt and betrayed, and wants to commit to them. She says she is infatuated with Taylor and has a huge crush on them. And that she hopes to restore Taylor’s trust in them, for some reason. (Source)
On August 6, 2017, an anonymous user posted to the gossip imageboard lolcow claiming Beck was going to Greg and Kai's home, but Kai was aware. They said readers might not believe them, but they'll see on the 16th. The poster also provided a screen shot of a conversation between Beck and Kai. They claimed the screen shot looks weird because they were only able to pull keylogs. In the screen shot, Kai was upset Greg never tells him anything. Beck says she assumed he told Kai. Kai asks when it is and Beck replies the 6th to the 15th. Beck asks Kai if he's ok with her visiting. Many readers were suspicious of the origins of the screen shots and if what the anonymous user said was true or not. The user replied with another screen shot of a conversation seemingly between Beck and Kai. (Admin note: I am assuming this is supposed to be Kai and Beck because the original file name was "laineytwitter2_screen.png".) They spoke about video games and Kai tells Beck "Maybe we'll be able to play together sometime :]" (Source)
That same day, Beck uploaded another song. This time it was an "I'm sorry" song for Greg and Kai. This songs had been deleted as well, but a summary of the song reads: In her song “I’m Sorry” she apologizes to Greg and Taylor for how they think she’s crazy and how she’s more than how she’s “dealt with pain” and how she needs to earn their trust again. I’m guessing this was a condition she had to fulfill, like the conditions that Billie had to fulfill. I’m wondering if she was either a cutter and they noticed her scars or something, or maybe she admitted to drinking alcohol or smoking weed. She says she is “weak in the knees” for the both of them. She also says that they are all very similar and have the same interests. (Source)Source) Suspicions were soon confirmed when Greg posted an update to Patreon titled "I Flew A Patreon Out :)". The post featured a new video dubbed "Cream People" featuring himself and Beck covered in shaving cream. (Source) The video was uploaded to his main channel the next day under the title "What Onision Does With His Fans (Shaving Cream)". ($ource)
