Don’t worry NikkieTutorials fans, the YouTuber — whose real name is Nikkie de Jager — didn’t break up with her fiancé Dylan Drossaers, but unfortunately, due to the current coronavirus pandemic, the couple was forced to postpone their upcoming wedding.
“We decided to postpone our wedding,” she said in her most recent YouTube video, before explaining that they still plan to get married, just not this year. “Because of that b***h ‘Rona. outside, messing up the world.”
After the announcement, which had fans terrified that the Youtube famous couple was breaking up, Nikkie did give Dylan a full face of makeup. Coincidentally, this came just before former Disney Channel star Miley Cyrus gave her boyfriend Cody Simpson a full glam look on Instagram Stories as a way to end toxic masculinity.
For those who don’t know, Nikkie went Instagram official with her beau Dylan back in January 2019, and got engaged a few months later during a romantic trip to Italy in August 2019. He stood by her side earlier this year after she was forced to come out as transgender in a 17-minute video after she was blackmailed into speaking her truth.
“A couple of weeks ago I got emails from a certain person. He was not OK with the fact that I was ‘lying’ and wanted to expose that,” she explained during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show from January 2020. “He had a very pressuring tone of voice and he was like, ‘If we don’t get an answer by tomorrow, it’s out.’ I feel like his entire goal with this was to destroy my life. But plot twist, that didn’t happen.”
She continued, “I remember uploading the video and I started crying. My fiancé, Dylan, was right next to me, he was like, ‘You can do it.’ He really pushed me to post it. He was like, ‘We’re going to get through this. It’s going to be OK. You’re going to do this.’ I always wanted to come out with it but it is such a delicate thing. How do you find the [right] timing? There’s never the perfect timing, so in a way, I’m not thankful for the person who did this, but I’m thankful that it happened now. Now I get to be free.”
