All this news came to public light when EskiValorant shared some messages with Shadow through Discord.
In the messages, Shadow writes that the age difference can be awkward, but they are both attracted. Shadow then comments on Canadian consent laws. It is important to mention that the organization’s owner stated that he is 25 years old and the girl is 17 years old.
Canadian law states that a minor cannot consent to sexual activity if the other person is in a position of power or trust over him. We are talking about, for example, the cases of coaches or teachers with their students.
After learning these details about Shadow, some people in the community claimed he had also sent them messages that exceeded the limits.
On the other hand, another person claimed that Shadow had sent him messages to manipulate him, in addition to other messages where Shadow claimed they were only rumors.
A day before everything came to light, Shadow exchanged messages with Ver1ariss, telling her he knew she loved drama and all that stuff.
Then Shadow, in another message, writes to her that he has done a lot for her and her whole team and asks her if she can act as if she cares and at least care if he is ok or not.
ImPerium’s statement on this news
After so much commotion about the information about Shadow, the organization stated that they are conducting an internal investigation to determine if the allegations are true.
On the other hand, in the statement, they ask the fan community to remain calm until they finish the investigation.
