One of the main benefits of subscribing to YouTube vloggers is being able to get to know someone every single day through their videos. However, for fans of Emily Canham and Jake Boys, seeing one of their favourite YouTube couples continue their lives together is no longer a possibility. It comes as heartbreaking news to us all that the pair have recently split up as they admit to “growing apart”.
The young couple, who had only been together for “two and a half years”, both shared blank images to their personal Instagram accounts to break the news to their fans.
Emily takes the time to make sure her fans understand why the couple have split so suddenly: “Jake and I are no longer together… we just grew apart and our lives are taking us in different directions”. In regards to their next step in life, and what they’ll be doing with their new puppy Cody, Emily asks that fans do “not judge our choices” as they make adjustments in their lives.
Over on Jake’s Instagram, he focuses primarily on Emily and how lucky he was to have spent the last two and a half years with his “best friend”. He also pins the fall of their relationship down to the struggle of finding a home together: “We spent months home hunting trying to find the perfect place for us and Cody to live and just be happy but in the end the happiness just was so hard to find”. He goes on to reminisce about meeting Emily, and all the wonderful moments they spent together, before making their split official:
“We have decided that ‘Jemily’ and our relationship does need to come to an end for the both of us to be truly happy…I’m always going to be her number 1 fan.”
We’re sending all our support to Emily Canham and Jake Boys during this difficult time, and are looking forward to seeing them move forward with their lives onto exciting new career adventures.
