Recommended Lists:Guzman uses the alias 'Blesiv' for all his social media profiles. In a YouTube video posted on March 14, 2019, he explained how he came up with the alias. He revealed that he originally played games with the gamer tag ‘Xander G’, but had to come up with a new tag after he was invited into a clan to explore the search and destroy game mode in 'Call of Duty'. Since all the clan members used 'Vexa' as a prefix to their gamer tag, he also needed to come up with something new. He was at the time a diehard fan of the rapper Drake and was particularly fond of the song '6 God', which was illustrated on the cover with hands folded in a prayer. He interpreted the image as asking for blessings, which led to him combining the word 'Bless' with his favorite number four. He wanted to choose the tag 'Bless4' but it was already taken, so he used the Roman numerals instead, making it 'BlessIV'. When short gamer tags became 'cool' in the PS3 community, he shortened his alias to 'Blesiv'.Continue Reading BelowFamily & Personal LIfe

In July 2018, Guzman went on a Twitter rant, which led to the speculations that Hailey had cheated on him. She subsequently posted an Instagram story, claiming that he didn't care about her, therefore, she had decided to move on with her life. Soon after that, she began posting photos and videos with another social media star, Brandon Westenberg. When she posted an intimate video with Brandon, in which Guzman could also be seen in the background, his fans were infuriated. Guzman later posted his reaction to the rumored relationship in an Instagram story, in which he could not hold back his tears.
