In July 2023, she opened up in a very personal Q&A video about her divorce from her husband Dan, who helped her build the channel. 

“I’m not wearing a wedding ring because sadly I am getting divorced. It’s a long story. It’s a very, very, very long story,” she shared at the time, noting that Dan was the one who asked for a divorce. 

“I pretended everything was OK online,” she said, noting that with rumors swirling, “I ended up having to address it before I was mentally ready to and, yeah, I had a hard time.”
