CSGO star Boombl4 reportedly blackmailed by ex-wife
CS:GO player Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov is embroiled in a heated exchange with his wife, claiming he's a drug addict and has had an affair with her. This arose as the couple released separate statements announcing that they were heading for divorce, in which Boombl4 revealed that she was blackmailing him.

Their divorce comes after they tied the knot on 31st December 2021, ending their relationship after six months of marriage. The couple also shared multiple statements, images, and video footage on their Telegram channels to corroborate their claims against each other.

Ex-NaVi captain accused by wife of alleged drug use

Former Natus Vincere (NaVi) captain Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov posted a statement on 8th June 2022 that he has officially filed a divorce proceeding against his wife. This comes following allegations made against him by Lika "LiQueen" Mikhailova, who's accusing him of drug use and cheating.

The couple's relationship has been much under the public since Boombl4 proposed to LiQueen on stage at the PGL Major Stockholm 2021. In the last few weeks, LiQueen comments regarding Russia's invasion of Ukraine drew criticism, as she seemingly supported the war on social media.

This increased pressure on Boombl4 and NaVi, resulting in his move to inactive status last month. His announcement from the team happened days after FaZe Clan defeated NaVi in the grand finals of the PGL Antwerp Major 2022.

According to an official statement from NaVi, Boombl4 was moved to their inactive roster as he posed "high reputational risks for the club". Following his exit, he has yet to confirm any news regarding his future as a CS:GO pro and whether he will be joining another team.

Days later, Boombl4 announced that he was divorcing his wife, which prompted a response from LiQueen via her Telegram channel, who claimed that her soon-to-be ex-husband was a "drug addict". She later added that he "betrayed" her on several occasions, which broke her heart before confirming the couple's divorce.

She later added that Boombl4 caused her to develop "panic attacks", but he ruined her psyche. Not only did he destroy their "little family", but he also damaged her mental health, citing that she shouldn't "keep quiet about this."

While Boombl4 hasn't yet responded to LiQueen's accusations in the wake of the divorce, the ex-NaVi captain stated that he'd be "filing libel suits" against her." Many thanks to everyone for the support and understanding at a difficult time for me," Boombl4 concluded in his statement.
