On June 20, 2022, the original Tiktokroom posted a screenshot of Michael Weist’s statement about his feud with YouTuber Danielle Cohn. Weist said he had sued Cohn and they were due to appear in court on June 23, 2022. He also said he had filed a lawsuit against Cohn’s friend, Mason Patterson.
Netizens held differing views in the comments section, with some saying Weist should have left Cohn alone, while others said he did the right thing and Cohn deserved it. “Why do you want to take it to social media, friend wtf?” one person defended Cohn. We do not care. It’s your concern, not ours.”
Another user said, “Oh my my, leave her alone; whatever happens in her life has nothing to do with you my friend.” Several people defended Weist, however, “For those wondering why he’s suing Danielle Cohn and Mason, it’s for defamation and she didn’t fulfill her contract with him, as she did with Mason,” one person noted.
The disagreement between Michael Weist and Danielle Cohn
It all started when Cohn became famous on YouTube and TikTok and used it to launch her music career. Her mother initially managed her career, but when admirers advised her to hire a professional manager, she ended up working with Weist. She came out about how her relationship with Weist deteriorated after he allegedly lied about her income and contract in a video titled “Addressing The Hate + Full Truth.”
She didn’t use Weist’s name, but followers knew she was talking about him. This new manager was accused of stealing from her. She went on to say that this manager told her he made up her name and claimed the property from her. The YouTuber expressed regret for listening to her followers. She often said she trusted her mother more than “strangers” since they stole from her.
Danielle Cohn’s response to Michael Weist
Weist released a video entitled “The Truth About My Client Danielle Cohn” on August 22, 2021, in which he discussed his connection to Cohn. He said he was filming this video to explain some of the things that were mentioned about him. Weist talked about everything he’d done for Cohn and her mother Jennifer, from paying for Cohn’s birthday meals to helping pack when they moved from Florida to Los Angeles.
In addition, he was not yet paid for all the music videos he had made. The manager also spoke about the events surrounding Cohn’s documentary ‘Obsessed’. Weist said he stopped shooting the documentary when things got too bleak. Cohn’s mother was accused of “pimping her daughter” and abusing her daughter for money. The manager then went on to address Cohn’s claims in the previous video. Weist acknowledged that he had not stolen any money from her and only claimed income from the documentary he had made. He went on to say that he will sue Cohn and her mother for defamation and defamation. And now it looks like he wasn’t kidding.
