Catherine Paiz is speaking out after her ex-husband, Austin McBroom, has drawn backlash due to his erratic behavior amid news of their divorce.

Austin McBroom and Catherine Paiz are known for their popular family YouTube channel, ‘The ACE Family.’

However, their seven-year marriage came to a close in January 2024 when the couple announced their divorce, shocking fans and inciting a concerning response from Austin.

Shortly after news of their split went public, McBroom began frequently posting to SnapChat. The behavior exhibited in his videos sent viewers for a loop, who surmised that he wasn’t taking his divorce well, at all.

McBroom also revealed that he’d started living in an RV outside of Catherine’s home, and was subsequently served a neighborhood watch notice for doing so.

Weeks later, Catherine has finally offered her response to the drama — and fans think she’s taking it rather well, all things considered.

In response to a few fan comments on Snapchat, Catherine revealed that her ex-husband’s behavior wasn’t something she understood, but claims that she’s letting him figure things out on his own, as he’s apparently told her that he’s just fine.

“I’m grateful to be evolved, because his behavior and coping mechanism is beyond me,” she wrote in a reply to a viewer. “He tells me he’s doing well though, so I trust that.”


Another fan phoned in to tell Catherine they were grateful their own marriage wasn’t on the internet for all to see, sparking another insightful response from the YouTuber about the circumstances surrounding her divorce.

“God orchestrated my life this way for a reason,” she said. “Grateful for it all. But I will say, if I’m ever in a relationship [again], it will be sacred, private, and protected.”


That’s not all; Paiz also recently posted a photo to Instagram with the caption, “I am bound by nothing,” leading fans to believe she’s enjoying her newfound freedom post-divorce.

At the present moment, quite a few viewers believe McBroom’s Snapchats are merely a ploy for views — but it looks like Catherine is unbothered, no matter what the truth really is.
