Things are not going well for the Russian CS:GO player, Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov, who has been accused of being a drug addict by his recently divorced wife, Angelika "LiQueen" Mikhailova.

A video posted by LiQueen has gone viral which shows Boombl4 allegedly consuming a drug called Mephedrone, which is a powerful stimulant comparable to cocaine and ecstacy. In response, the 23-year-old has claimed that he is being blackmailed through various photos, videos, and a lot of 'fake information', for which he will soon be filing a defamation lawsuit.

In addition to this, the former NAVI captain has shared a few video posts on his official Telegram channel, where he allegedly speaks about his future in CS:GO after he is done tackling the current situation and suing his ex-wife.

Right after the PGL Antwerp Major 2022, Natus Vincere (NAVI) had taken a decision to remove Boombl4 from its CS:GO roster, citing the reason as "high reputational risk for the club".

This did put the Ukrainian organization in a difficult spot as they were forced to bring in another rifler, Viktor "sdy" Orudzhev, while considering handing over the role of an IGL (In-Game Leader) to Denis “electroNic” Sharipov.

The overall situation did not look too bright for Boombl4 and with the controversial divorce everything seems to have taken a turn for the worse. However, even at his lowest point the Major winner seems dedicated towards competing in CS:GO professionally.

According to a video clip uploaded by Boombl4 on his Telegram channel which is originally in Russian and has been transcribed by Cybersport.ru, he goes on to allegedly say that,

All my life I wanted to play CS:GO, It was my dream. I'm very sorry about what happened to the NAVI team. It's a shame, but I don't want to stop there. I want to continue my career, if there is an opportunity on any team. I promise that I will not break and continue to play CS. We'll see what happens next, how things develop. Now I just want to rest from all this and deal with the lawsuits.

While a return to competitive CS:GO is a thought for the future, as Boombl4 will have his hands occupied in case he goes through with the defamation lawsuit. The Russian player has voiced his thoughts about what it means for him to compete in the game and expressed his readiness to continue his career in esports.
