You can read more below about Alber “sleightlymusical” Chang and Lily “LilyPichu” Ki’s involvement with OfflineTV, their break up, and where they are now.
Joining Offline TV
If you didn’t already know, OfflineTV is an internet-based social community where a small group of content creators live together and share content via platforms like Twitch and YouTube. The group has a house in Beverly Hills and their content ranges from gaming videos to pranks, to housemates playing board games together.
Lily Ki, known online as LilyPichu, joined OfflineTV in 2017 shortly after the content house was created. She had originally gained a following on YouTube for her song “I’ll Quit LoL,” which is referring to the video game League of Legends.
LilyPichu was vlogging, creating art, making music, and sharing gaming content through YouTube and Twitch and gaining massive popularity when she was offered a spot in the OfflineTV House.
Albert Chang, known online as sleightlymusical, joined OfflineTV sometime during 2018. He had gained a following for his violin and musical acts, magic tricks, and League of Legends streaming.
Chang was actually an opening and closing ceremony performer at the 2017 League of Legends World Championships. During Chang and Ki’s time in the OfflineTV house, they formed a connection that budded into a relationship.
During this time, the two collaborated more than once with Sarah Lee, who also goes by the name avocadopeeled online. She performed covers of Loneliest Girl, Can’t Help Falling In Love, and A Thousand Years with the couple before some terrible news broke.
Cheating Scandal Hits LilyPichu and sleightlymusical
It was in November 2019, when the entire OfflineTV crew was in Japan for Twitch Con, that some of the housemates started posting cryptic messages on their social media platforms. One of the original members of the OfflineTV house, Pokimane, tweeted “it’s insane how the best of people can turn out to be snakes.”
This led to many fans starting a witch hunt on Reddit to see what exactly was going on. Then, on November 9th, LilyPichu announced that she was leaving Japan early due to personal issues.
This statement only fueled the fire of people trying to figure out what was going on until, twenty-four hours later, Ki released this statement on her Twitter. It highlighted that she and Chang had broken up and that she was heartbroken.
Two days later, Chang released his own statement and announced that he would be taking an indefinite hiatus from all platforms. He also revealed that he had been unfaithful to Ki, but fans were now not only enraged that he cheated, they were all screaming “who was it with?”
Well, also in November of 2019, Sarah Lee was live streaming on Twitch when she accidentally shared her screen of what appeared to be a Google Docs file where she and Chang were flirting. Fans speculated that Lee was the other woman and this was confirmed when she posted her own apology statement to Twitter.
What Happened Next?
Well, sleightlymusical took an almost year-long hiatus from all of his social media accounts and the public eye. Then on October 5, 2020, he posted an eleven-minute long video that you can watch below.
In the video, Chang highlights what he’s been up to including learning how to make proper coffee, starting a daily workout routine, making yeast that he named “Yeast Boy”, and seeing a therapist. The video has been positively received by many fans who have praised him for taking steps to become a better person and reflecting on how what he did really hurt other people.
As for LilyPichu, she has definitely healed and moved on from Albert Chang. She has been in a relationship with OfflineTVs newest house member, Michael Reeves, since early 2020.
Reeves is known for his engineering YouTube videos and was previously a Software Engineer. He joined the OfflineTV crew in December of 2019.
Sarah Lee has been missing from all of her social media platforms since announcing her hiatus on November 13, 2019.
