Popular YouTuber, model, and music artist Erika Costell has finally opened up about her weight loss, which saw criticism and concern alike throughout her fanbase.

Costell addressed the issue in a vlog on January 28, claiming that she is not suffering from an eating disorder and is not taking any special “diet pills” or supplements to help her lose weight.

Instead, Costell attributed her recent weight loss to stress and anxiety from the past few months – likely in reference to her breakup with controversial YouTuber Jake Paul in early November of 2018.

“Being completely honest, I’ve been going through a lot of changes that have caused me a lot of anxiety and stress the past couple of months,” Costell explained. “This is not abnormal for my body whatsoever.”

Costell went on to state that her weight often fluctuates often depending on her anxiety levels, which she admitted have been fairly high as of late.

“I will say, my anxiety the past few months is the worst it’s ever, ever been,” she continued. “That is the truth behind my weight loss.”

Costell’s weight was previously addressed by Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem, who compared the model to YouTuber Eugenia Cooney (who is widely speculated to suffer from bulimia or anorexia).

Despite their current beef, Paul defended Costell against KEEM’s comments, calling the host a “piece of trash” for insinuating that Costell suffered from an eating disorder – as well as calling Costell “gorgeous” despite their breakup.

Popular YouTuber Ethan Dolan has revealed on Instagram the details of his long-term relationship with girlfriend Kristina Alice, who he reconnected with this week after spending most of quarantine apart.

Ethan and his twin Grayson originally rose to popularity on the video app Vine in 2013, and have since gone on to produce content on their highly successful YouTube channel with over 11 million subscribers.

While they have many adoring fans, they haven’t been exempt from drama, such as earlier in July when they were forced to address a homophobic slur used when explaining the bullying they received in high school. In the same month, Ethan released a video detailing how comments online about his acne had severely affected his well-being in the past year.

Last week Ethan revealed his girlfriend to the world on YouTube with his brother Grayson. After spending months apart Kristine was finally able to catch a flight out to Los Angeles from Australia where she lives.

On Monday, Ethan stunned his fans by posting a series of close, romantic pictures to his Instagram alongside an emotional message, which read: “To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life.”

He explained that last December was “one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life” and attributed his success and ability to get through to her support.

Part 1/3. To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life. Our trip to Hawaii on this day last year, will be a memory I cherish for the rest of my life. I will be forever grateful for how caring you were during one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life while living in Australia together last December. I wouldn’t have been able to create my most proud project last January without your constant support. When we were forced to quarantine together and be attached at the hip for an additional 5 months longer than we planned… I wasn’t even mad😌 When you had to go back to Australia without knowing when we’d be able to see each other again it was NOT CHILL. Although we unintentionally spent 4 months on opposite sides of the globe with a 17 hour time difference… I still felt closer than ever to you. The hours on FaceTime everyday and random gift care packages were fun. You completely took over my camera roll because I couldn’t help but to screenshot your face every couple seconds. Getting a little part of you tattooed on my arm also contributed to you feeling closer to me I guess 😝 Thank you for making me happy everyday. Thank you for giving me something to always look forward to. Thank you for making me a better version of myself. I love you Photos by: @jordenkeith

It seems as though Ethan will have more to say in the next few days after he labeled the caption only part 1 of 3. For now, the YouTuber has confirmed to the world that not only is he in a far better place than he was last year, but that he is well and truly taken.
