Jesse Wellens and Jeana Smith have revealed the reason for their breakup

Popular YouTubing couple Jesse Wellens and Jeana Smith have revealed that they have broken up in an emotional video. “Jeana and I", Jesse says in the stark video, "for a while now have been having a lot of issues in our relationship and it’s been hard.” They go onto to talk about how there's of lot of things that take place "off camera" and that they have been experiencing problems, which they decided not to show in their videos, in order to maintain the positive mood of their content.

The couple are of course famous for their pranks, particularly the pranks they play on each other on their BF v GF series. For a team that rely so heavily on being a couple for their content, this break up is certainly going to be significant. They have turned off comments and ratings on the video, stating that 'we disabled the comments on this video because that is what we need to avoid. We can't be publicly judged on our relationship anymore, especially for this video.'


They say that part of the reason for the breakup is the pressure of having a relationship that is so open to viewers. This is something I recently discussed in my breakdown of the kinds of YouTuber relationship. You can watch the whole (very sad) video right here:
