The scandal has consumed the YouTube community

YouTube gamer ProJared has found himself at the centre of a firestorm of backlash after his wife, Heidi O'Ferrall, accused him of cheating on her with Holly Conrad, another known gamer - and then was accused of soliciting nudes from fans - AND THEN was accused of exchanging nudes with underage fans.

The drama unfolded across a number of tweets, which YouTube user @dreamer_arw has helpfully compiled into a simple 'starter pack':

As you can see, things started when Jared's wife Heidi tweeted:

"In recently learned that my husband @ProJared has been fucking @HollyConrad behind my back for months. I have no idea what announcement he just made because he blocked me".

The tweet was accompanied by a Twitter screenshot that showed that he had indeed blocked her.

She went on to explain that she had proof that Jared had been cheating on her systematically for some time. She tweeted:

"I have proof. Explicit conversations and photographs of their relationship, which he extensively lied to me about on many occasions. He was promising me that he was committed to our relationship at the time, and promising her he was breaking up with me."

And also:

"Reading the explicit messages between my husband and his mistress is an experience I would not wish on anyone. I basically discovered that they've been hooking up on all their work trips since last fall, and meeting together secretly since she moved here."

And then things just got more and more strange.

The tale just got more strange and twisted from there. First of all - the person who Jared allegedly cheated with, decided to reply to Jared's now ex-wife, saying in a now-deleted tweet:

"Im so sorry you're going through this. I'm here for you if you need me."

We feel Dolan Dark summed up that decision in his concise reply: "bruh moment".

Heidi then revealed that Jared had had a tumblr account where he shared nudes and encouraged people to do the same. She said she permitted this. However, he apparently told her that he had closed the account a few years ago - but this is supposed to be a lie.

It transpired that he has been exchanging nudes for people continually through their marriage. His nudes are now being constantly posted all over Twitter by annoyed former fans, making researching this story very hard for us intrepid YouTube journalists.

Things then took an even darker turn when a young fan came out and said that Jared had solicited nude photos from her when she was just 16 years old (making her a minor in the United States). That tweet has now been deleted, however, and we will not share the name of the person.

Jared then issued a statement addressing the fact that he and Holly are no longer together, but completely omitting any reference to his alleged cheating or inappropriate behaviour, which didn't go down particularly well with, really, anyone. He revealed in the statement that he and Heidi are divorcing.

A special shoutout goes to the emotional journey that this one Twitter commenter went on, after reading Jared's statement:

Since the drama started, Jared has been shedding YouTube subscribers at a remarkable rate.
