Rumors began circulating saying that he lost all of his money so that’s why he took the job. This prompted him to write a Tumblr post about it and in it, he said, “I am financially secure, and took this job as a way to primarily feed my over bountiful video game addiction.”

He continued, “I also took this as a way to try a new experience, working somewhat below the means I’m used to, as well as a way to socialize and get out of the house. I feel most comfortable when I’m working and doing something, to criticize someone of that is pretty odd.”

Dylan graduated in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in video game design.

Additionally, Mary-Kate said she left due to her “increasing responsibilities as co-president of Dualstar Entertainment Group and to pursue personal interests.” 

Neither have returned.
