KSI was banned from Tinder due to fears that he was a catfish.
The Celebrity Gogglebox star, 26, was temporarily taken off the dating site because fans felt that someone else was pretending to be him.
He told Radio 5 Live’s Scott Mills and Chris Stark show: “I can’t actually go on Tinder any more because everyone just reports me for being a catfish.
“To try and prove that I was real I would link my Instagram, but then I got a bit embarrassed, so I took that off and put up normal photos of me.
“So it’s not like pictures that you’d go, ‘Oh yes, that’s KSI’, you just go, ‘Oh, that kind of looks like KSI’.”
The YouTube sensation – whose real name is Olajide Olayinka Williams – is one of Britain’s top internet personalities.
He made the move from YouTube comedian to professional boxer and then to a top music star, with his songs boasting multiple features from other top artists in the rap game.
KSI has been hit with a number of shocking rumours lately, with the accusation of him living as a catfish being pretty tame in comparison.
After getting bored in lockdown, the star decided to Google his name – but it go as planned for him.
His Google adventure began with him typing the phrase, ‘Is KSI’ into the search bar.
Surprisingly, the term, ‘Is KSI dead’ popped up as the very first result, which completely baffled the young star.
Taking to Twitter to share his disbelief on the matter, he questioned: “Are people really searching that? Wait, what the hell guys?’.
Unfortunately for KSI, the top result took him to a clickbait video, which promptly mocked the viewer for falling for their trap.
Last month, the superstar was announced to be part of the all star Celebrity Gogglebox line up alongside friend and collaborator S-X.
The rapper – who released album Dissimulation this year – shared the news on Twitter with fans.
Alongside a snap of himself enjoying some food in front of the telly with his pal, he wrote: “Ya boy is gonna be on @c4gogglebox with @producersx. Starts Friday at 9p on @channel4 #celebritygogglebox”.
As well as being a social media hero, KSI is an e-sports star.
He famously won his boxing match against fellow YouTuber Logan Paul which has gone down in history as one of the most anticipated fights of his generation.
