The YouTube Couple You Never Thought Would Break Up Has Called it Quits
It’s time to make room to add another couple to the list of YouTube pairs who filmed videos together after breaking up. We honestly cannot even believe we’re about to say this, but Jesse Wellens and Jeana Smith (a.k.a PrankvsPrank and BFvsGF on YT) have called it quits after 10 years of dating. NGL, we haven’t been so shocked about a breakup since Marcus Butler and Niomi Smart announced their separation months ago.
The longtime couple revealed their decision to split in an emotional YouTube video called “A NEW CHAPTER.”
“For some while now, we’ve been having a lot of issues in our relationship and it’s been hard. A lot of stuff goes on that we don’t record, of course…” the 33-year-old man started. “Jeana and I are going to take a break from vlogging, we’re going to take a break from each other… we’re just going to take some time off.”
Even the blonde then went on to say that even though people assumed their relationship was “perfect,” there was a lot of hardships they didn’t show in their videos. Both Jesse and Jeana were visibly emotional as they told their audience their decision, and said it’s “absolutely a very difficult, sad and upsetting time.”
I'm sorry everyone

I really love you guys

As for their joint YouTube channels that have garnered millions of subscribers over the past 7 years? “We don’t know yet,” both of them said. Our hearts go out to the pair at the very difficult time, and we hope some time apart helps them clear their heads and find happiness again.
Although Jeana and Jesse met WAY before YouTube, these other couples connected because of the site:
Zoe Sugg & Alfie Deyes
Although Alfie and Zoe both attended the same YouTube party back in July 2012, they didn't officially meet until August 2012 at another YT event called Summer in the City (Zoe actually waited on line to meet her future BF and his pal Marcus Butler)! The pair quickly became friends, and frequently collaborated together and were featured in each other's vlogs. Many fans began to speculate that Zalfie was a thing, but the YouTubers didn't confirm their romantic relationship until August 2013, when their friend Jim Chapman accidentally outed them by showing a photo of them smooching in one of his vlogs — OOPS! But even though the start to their romance was a bit ~unique~ Zoe and Alfie have now been dating for almost three years, live together in England, and have an adorable little puppy named Nala. #GOALS
