Shane Dawson has opened up about how friend and fellow YouTuber Trisha Paytas helped him during the "peak" of his depression.

Recalling when he had broken his ankle and was "struggling" with his sexuality, Shane explained that Trisha came to his rescue when he was "stuck on the couch for weeks" and feeling low.

"Every single day," Shane wrote in a note shared to Twitter, "Trisha came to my tiny apartment and took care of me and made me feel less alone.

"She listened to me, cried with me, and let me know that no matter what she would have my back till the day we died." He added, "Trisha is a beautiful person inside and out and I am so grateful she exits."

Shane shared the story shortly after Trisha revealed she had broken up with fellow YouTuber Jason Nash.
