When lockdown first began last year, many of us started doing things that were a little out of our ordinary routines.  

Maybe texting an ex. Or watching a show about the eccentric world of tiger breeders. Or even… getting invested in unverified celebrity gossip. 

Over the last year, the Instagram account Deuxmoihas become a destination for users looking to escape the monotony of pandemic life through a hit of celebrity gossip. It’s now amassed over 950,000 followers.

From Elle:

The creator behind Deuxmoi is anonymous — and intends to keep it that way. But she agreed to talk with us about being the wizard behind the digital curtain.
