Why did Abe and Wendy break up? OTV couple Natsumiii and BaboAbe split after getting married on Twitch

Twitch stars Natsumiii and BaboAbe broke the internet when they livestreamed their wedding in November 2022 — but less than a year later, the couple have split. Wendy and Abe’s break up has been subject to speculation since.

OfflineTV stars and prominent Twitch streamers Natsumiii and BaboAbe took their wedding to the next level in fall 2022, broadcasting their nuptials to over 60,000 fans.

Although the in-person ceremony was an intimate affair with some of the net’s top streamers in attendance, the entire world got to sit in on the romantic event and sent their well-wishes to the couple in the form of ‘pogchamp’ and ‘feelswowman’ emotes.

The wedding took social media by storm and went viral online… but things took a turn for the couple mere months later.

BaboAbe and Wenty separate

BaboAbe broke the news of his separation from Natsumiii, also known as Wendy, in a tweet on July 31, 2023, just eight months after their wedding.

“Wendy and I are no longer together,” he wrote. “Things happened, and I can at the very least say, with confidence, that I’ve done all I can to try to save our marriage and make things work.”

Wendy also confirmed on her own stream that they were no longer together, but did not elaborate any further details.

Why did Wendy and Abe break up?

As a result of both streamers remaining tight-lipped on what caused the sudden and unexpected end to their relationship, fans predictably sought answers. Abe also fuelled speculation somewhat by stating on his stream:

“Wendy and I are no longer together. I know that there’s going to be a lot of memes and unnecessary comments, but as I stated in the post, I can at least wholeheartedly say that I, at the very least, truly have done and given everything that I possibly could to make things work.

“But you know, sometimes it’s just not possible,” he continued. “I know there’s going to be a lot of you that are wondering what happened, it hasn’t been that long since we got married. …but I do ask that you guys try to be respectful during this time. I’m sure you guys will be able to come to your own conclusions, just based on social dynamics and whatnot.”

Although Abe claimed that the “past few months have been really really hard,” he says he’s been taking time to work on himself.

“I’ve been getting therapy, which has been kinda nice,” he continued. “I’ve been dieting, working out, and playing a lot less games. I’m in a much better place right now – mentally, emotionally, and physically. I’m ready to kind of just move on with my life and focus on myself.’

Did Wendy cheat on Abe?

Whether either of Wendy or Abe were unfaithful is not known. However, due to Abe’s comment that fans will be able to “come to your own conclusions, based on social dynamics”, fans believe that Wendy may have cheated.

This is because she has since been unfollowed by all other Offline TV members, and no longer interacts with the group.

Abe and Natsumiii aren’t the only couple to have split up after a major live-streamed milestone. Fuslie and Edison Park separated in 2021 after the pair got engaged during Park’s 2019 subathon in a clip that went viral online.
