Okay, take a deep breath.
Forbes has already provided a thorough breakdown of why this rumor has no basis in reality, so we won’t spend too much time belaboring the point. But if you need some quick reasons for why this rumor is nothing but hearsay, here are a few:
1) The theory comes from 4chan, which is about as unreliable a source as it gets,
2) Dr DisRespect just signed his own multi-year exclusivity deal with Twitch in March and it’s unlikely he’d break his contract to join Brime when he stood to make $10 million a year from Twitch (per Kotaku),
3) Ninja and Shroud, who haven’t announced their future plans, probably aren’t dying to join another fledgling streaming service after what just went down with Mixer, which in 2019 already had more “clout” than Brime does at the moment,
4) The rumor claims that Brime is backed by Spotify and that Spotify is owned by Google. Both of these statements are false.
No, things are not looking good for this particular theory.
Brime itself addressed the rumors on Twitter, confirming that it has nothing to do with Spotify or Google: “We can confirm that we are not Spotify, Google, or anyone else that’s known by the industry. That this is something we believe in and are passionate about.”
Regarding Brime’s rumored collaboration with Dr DisRespect, Ninja, and Shroud, Brime said, “Just because we follow someone doesn’t mean anything. Every streaming service follows people that they find interesting.”
