Gabrielle Moses, one half of popular YouTube channel Jack and Gab, has revealed in an emotional video that the pair have broken up.

Speaking through tears, Gabrielle explained in a video on her personal channel that she is devastated about the ending of her relationship of almost 5 years with Jack Brinkman.

Gabrielle told her audience on June 3: “I’m not currently in a relationship with Jack. Sometimes things have to change.”She explained that she had been with Jack from the age of 15 until almost 20, saying: “I don’t know who I am without him. I thought I’d be married to him one day.”

“I know I made a commitment to you guys when I started making videos when I was 15 or 16 years old, but that’s not going to change. I’m not just going to disappear. I’m going to try and still make some happy videos.”

Fans of the ex-couple, who call themselves the ‘rubber ducky army’, have flooded her videos with support. On a second video posted shortly after, one fan wrote: “She’s such a gem, she still has a smile on her face while she’s crying,” while another commented that her fanbase “all love you and care for you. You are an amazing person with or without Jack.”

No videos were posted on the couple’s channel since March 30, which led some fans to speculate that a break up was on the cards. The top comments under their most recent video titled ‘Gabrielle got sick…’ included predictions that they had broken up based on the couple’s radio silence.

Jack Brinkham and Gabrielle Moses are known for their YouTube channel Jack and Gab which has more than 2 million subscribers. Their videos show them playing pranks on each other, taking on viral challenges and giving relationship advice. Their most popular video to date has 4.2 million views, but neither Jack or Gabrielle have revealed how they intend to proceed with the future of the channel, or if it will be left dormant moving forward.

Twitch is home to some pretty outlandish personalities, but none may be as unique as the rising streamer known only as Granny.

Dressed in a bright white wig, oversized glasses, and attire that you could have sworn you’ve seen the elderly wear, Granny takes the character to the extreme.

If you thought the outfit or persona was the limit of the character, think again. Just like how Dr Disrespect streams from his legendary “arena,” Granny has her own broadcast center of sorts.

From Granny’s house to Twitch

Her streams begin, amusingly enough, with an old house in a green meadow surrounded by rainbows, flowers and chirping birds.

After introducing herself, talking to viewers from inside the big pink home that looks like it’s ripped from either Lord of the Rings or Teletubbies, the gameplay kicks off.

What makes Granny’s choice of games so hilarious is that she’s made a habit of streaming titles such as Dead by Daylight, which are the complete opposite of the happy-go-lucky nature of the intro.

Fans are absolutely loving it. Since starting the stream, Granny has amassed nearly 30,000 followers and is growing on other platforms such as YouTube.

Climbing the Twitch ranks

Speaking with Dexerto, the entertainer refused to break character, further, cementing the concept that this was a grandma streaming on the Amazon-owned platform.

Granny claims it all began when she was working for a finance firm in New York City for three years and was beginning to feel worn out.

“Right around that time, Red Dead Redemption 2 came out and I found a huge comfort being immersed in that world while I took time to recover and figure out my next steps,” the streamer explained.

“When Red Dead Online was released I started to make friends on the proximity voice chat and they told me I should try my hand at streaming. In February 2019 I moved to New Zealand to go all-in on starting a Twitch channel, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision.”

That said, she does have plans to return to New York at some point in 2021, so fans should be sure to be on the lookout for that.

While the climb up the Twitch ranks has been a journey since it first began in January of 2019, the streamer does have a few favorite moments.

“A couple of exciting milestones along the way have been Trixie Mattel and TPAIN discovering the stream,” she happily noted. “They love joining in now and again to help repair the ice cream machines in Dead By Daylight.”

Going into 2021, Granny is definitely going to be one of the streamers to watch out for, especially if she continues to get noticed by some larger members of the community.
