OG YouTuber Jenna Marbles shocked the internet by announcing her indefinite hiatus from social media following accusations of racist behavior — and after two weeks of being offline, her boyfriend has returned with an update on the star.

Jenna Marbles boasts one of the longest and most successful careers on YouTube, having garnered over 20 million subscribers due to her comedic sketches and wholesome content with her greyhound pups.

However, the star came under scrutiny in late June, with some fans taking offense over her older videos where Marbles parodied rapper Nicki Minaj and appeared to mock Asian languages in a racist costume.

Marbles addressed these concerns in a video on June 25, announcing that she would be indefinitely stepping back from creating content and claiming that she wanted to “make sure the things I put into the world are not hurting anyone.”

In a now-deleted video, YouTuber Jenna Marbles announced that she would be stepping back indefinitely from the internet after apologizing for a few of her older videos.

Since then, Marbles has not been spotted online — but long-term boyfriend Julien Solomita updated fans on her status in an unexpected live stream on July 6 to put their concerns at ease.

“Jenna is offline,” Solomita revealed. “She is not on the internet. And, as she announced in her video, she doesn’t know if that’s gonna be forever. Could be a month, could be six months. Could be forever.”

“…she is doing well,” he continued. “And I know a lot of you guys are curious and concerned where she is and what she’s doing, and how she is. She appreciates the concern. She really does. She is offline right now. She is not gonna be making videos. She’s not gonna be on stream.”

Solomita also asked fans to “respect” Marbles’ hiatus, as she takes the time she needs to recover and make her decision regarding her future on YouTube.

While many viewers were distraught at Marbles’ decision to step back from the internet, some felt it was the right decision for her to make, in wake of a slew of other top YouTubers being called out for problematic behavior in their past videos.

TikTok stars Noah Beck and Dixie D’Amelio finally confirmed their relationship status after weeks of being “besties,” but the details of their relationship are still up in the air — more specifically, how Noah even went about asking Dixie to be his girlfriend, in the first place.

Despite being spotted by paparazzi and even sharing an on-screen smooch for Dixie’s music video, this TikTok couple was adamant that they were nothing more than friends, choosing to keep their relationship status private in the age of oversharing on social media.

However, Noah finally broke the silence on October 6, admitting that he and Dixie were officially dating in a then-unreleased interview that sent fans into a tizzy.

While their relationship was almost immediately met with scandal — with Griffin Johnson even creating a diss track that hinted Noah had broken some sort of “bro code” — it seems that these two aren’t letting the drama get them down.

Now that things are official, though, Noah is opening up more about his romance with Dixie, even revealing how he asked out the TikToker-turned-singer — and his methods are giving guys a whole lot to live up to.

During a collaboration with YouTuber Jeff Wittek on October 13, Noah admitted that he and Dixie used to visit Malibu, California quite often, giving him the perfect getaway spot to pop the question.

“There was this lifeguard tower that we always used to sit at, and just talk and stuff,” Noah explained. “So basically, I took her to Malibu on September 25, we went to the lifeguard post and I decorated it with candles. I brought s’mores and s**t.”

“I told her like, wait in the car,” he continued. “I got some stuff out of the trunk, decorated the lifeguard post, like rose petals, candles, stuff like that. I came back when I was done decorating, walked her there, and she knew what was happening, I think. And then I just popped the question!”

There’s no doubting that Noah Beck is this generation’s Prince Charming after hearing all that. It looks like miss Dixie got pretty lucky!
