Jessica Blevins Planning Resignation As Ninja’s Manager

Jessica Blevins revealed on February 4, 2022 that she plans to resign as Ninja’s manager. Blevins mentioned during an interview that she intends to focus on building up her own brand in the future.

“Over the last year, I’ve been growing my brand, similar to what I did with Tyler,” Blevins noted. “I have a public relations team. I signed with the Creative Artists Agency. Before, I was focusing on Tyler, so now I’m focusing on my brand simultaneously.”

Blevins has been managing Ninja, Tyler Blevins, during most of his career in streaming. The pair became a couple before marrying in 2017. While she wants to continue supporting Ninja, Blevins pointed out that she might need to step down at some point in order to build up her own brand. This would of course mean hiring someone to take over her role as Ninja's manager.

“We’re realizing that there will come a time — and it may come sooner rather than later — that I won’t be his manager anymore,” Blevins remarked. “But with how much I’m doing, there’s going to be a time when we need to hire a manager we can trust. Someone who eats, breathes, and sleeps Team Ninja like I have done.”

Blevins noted that “right now, I’m really torn. We’re talking about when do we pull the plug and do this. I haven’t told anyone that. You heard it here first!” Blevins went on to say that she wants to “focus on my own stuff and take a step back.”

Blevins currently has a channel on Twitch with over 450,000 followers. She can often be found streaming Dead By Daylight.

This comes in the wake of a controversy between JiDion and Pokimane that wound up involving Ninja. When followers of JiDion launched a Twitch raid, Ninja came out in defense of the streamer, prompting Pokimane to respond. Blevins told her shortly afterwards that “we are considering everything defamation of character at this point and are getting our legal team involved.” JiDion and Pokimane seem to have resolved their differences.
