The son of Logan mayor Darren Power had a humble upbringing in the south side of Brisbane in Shailer Park with his councilor father, bank manager mum Lynne and three siblings, reported the Courier Mail. 

Power reportedly started YouTubing as a hobby in 2014 but when video game Fortnite surged in popularity a few years later, his channel exploded and he was launched into a life of unfathomable fame and wealth.

The entrepreneur started a self-titled clothing line, Power by Lachlan, and hawks various products through lucrative endorsement deals with companies like Emirates and The Pokémon Company in his videos and social media channels.

The Youtuber’s whole level Kangaroo Point riverside apartment was bought for $4.4million in July last year by a Power family trust and includes a private lift and stunning waterfront views.

The same trust also owns a seven-bedroom property in Cornubia which includes a basketball court, pool and custom bar and a Newstead unit Power bought at age 18 for $462K. 

The millionaire drives a Tesla SUV worth $200,000 with the customised number plates ‘BANTER’ and owns a designer dog, a Groodle called Otto. 

Power dated international lingerie model Morgan Krizmanich until August last year when she had to return to Canada, and even has a trademarked lightening bolt. 

Photos of the pair shared on Instagram in late 2019 and early 2020 showed the pair enjoying the sunset at Sydney’s Bondi Beach and posing together at bars and restaurants.

‘I just want to find the burning passion for creating Fortnite content that I once had…’ he tweeted.

‘For the record I love playing Fortnite and enjoy playing it almost everyday.

‘Just creatively I cant find the passion I once did for creating content, [and] it feels like recycling another challenge video only draws me [further] away from it.’
