Say it Ain’t So! One of These Adorable British YouTube Couples Called it Quits
WTF is going on in the YouTube relationship world right now?! Late last week, one of our favorite lesbian couples announced that they had broken up. But just our hearts were starting to recover from that news, ANOTHER adorable pair has called it quits, too.
British YouTubers Emma Blackery and Luke Cutforth revealed the news that they had split in a lighthearted video posted over the weekend. The pair started dating in April 2013, but didn’t publicly announce their relationship until October 2014.
The Brits said the decision to break up stemmed from their busy schedules and inability to actually see each other much in the upcoming months. The 24-year-old musician recently started touring with British band Busted, and the 22-year-old is busy filming a movie.
“Over the last few months me and Emma have just become incredibly busy and we weren’t talking that much and I was away and she’s going away…” Luke said.
Emma continued, “It was just our time, man. That’s all. We barely saw each other.”
Luke is still my best friend in the entire world. I still love him and I always will. New song is obviously not about him.

But while many people were blindsided by Emma and Luke’s breakup, the former couple said it was a long time coming and there were absolutely no hard feelings.
“We’re so good and we’re so cool and we’re so not, like, hating each other. We don’t hate each other at all. We think each other are fabulous and we just want the best for each other.”
Emma and Luke are still so close, in fact, that he was staying on his ex’s couch at the time the video was filmed. #FriendshipGoals
While Emma and Luke’s post-breakup video was not awkward at ALL, these YT stars didn’t have the same kind of luck:
Kian Lawley & Andrea Russett
Breaking up is never easy, but when you do it in the public eye it's MUCH more difficult. Both Kian and Andrea faced scrutiny when they ended their almost-two-year relationship back in June 2014, and even shaded each other on social media immediately following the split. But while they may not have been on good terms at first, by the time December 2015 rolled around they wanted to show everyone that they were still friends — by recording some of the most awkward videos EVER!
The YouTube stars each uploaded their own uncomfortable vid to their channel, with Andrea CUDDLING Kian in her bed on hers and Kian KISSING Andrea on his. Yes, even they admitted that they felt super weird filming, but wanted to assure people that they had moved past any drama.
