Danielle Cohn and Mikey Tua are the YouTube star’s writing all of the headlines right now.
YouTube star Danielle Cohn has been at the centre of controversy in recent days.
The YouTuber has come under fire for allegedly faking her age and causing her relationship with fellow YouTuber Mikey Tua to come to an end.
But just what happened between the two to cause such a fallout?
Who are Danielle Cohn and Mikey Tua?
Danielle ‘Dani’ Cohn is a YouTuber who, at the time of writing, has amassed over 1.3 million subscribers.
The social media star rose to fame on the TikTok app after spending her ‘younger’ years competing in beauty pageants and has since branched out onto several other social platforms including Instagram where she has over 3.6 million followers.
As well as creating general video content for YouTube, focusing primarily on her relationships, Cohn also has a growing music career and uses her channel to post music videos.
Mikey meanwhile has a YouTube following of 300,000 and 640,000 followers on Instagram and posts largely similar content to Cohn.
What’s the cause of this ‘controversy’ and when did it all start?
Danielle Cohn has seemingly built her YouTube career on causing ‘controversy’ with her (now ex-) boyfriend seemingly being the but of the joke more often than not.
According to Cohn’s Instagram, her and Mikey began their relationship on June 10, 2018.
In April 2019 came the biggest publicity stunt from the young YouTuber as she faked pregnancy as prank even going as far as having a ‘gender-reveal party’.
In June 2019, the pair celebrated one year of being together, marked with a music video which features the pair having a make-believe wedding.
On June 29, 2019 Cohn posted another prank video, this time pretending that she was cheating on her boyfriend.
In response to the outcry from fans, on July 2nd she came out in another video, talking straight to camera explaining that the pair were still together despite having a large argument in the previous video.
In more recent days, it has come out that the pair have split up and an Instagram story, allegedly uploaded by Mikey’s parents has been at the centre of the controversy.
However, the pair recently broke up and fans have speculated that it is Dani’s age that has caused the pair to split.
Until proven otherwise, Danielle Cohn is 15 years old. Sources say that she born in Los Angeles on May 7th, 2004. And, with the size of her social media followings, it’s unlikely that Dani would be able to hold her YouTube and Instagram accounts first proving her age in some form of identity check.
However, Mikey’s dad uploaded a post explaining that he had taken away his son’s social media accounts to protect while also adding fuel to the fire when it comes to the fan theories that Dani is lying about his age.
Mikey’s dad said on Insta’:
“I love my son very much. All I want is for him to be safe with himself and his decisions. As parents, we need to protect him from any harm that might come his way. He wants to get emancipated and I understand that but his emancipation could get him in prison. Dani is not 15.”
It is this post that has lead fans to believe that Dani may be 13 years old combined with a YouTube fan video that reported on Dani’s involvement in a 2004 beauty pageant.
However, at this stage, there is still no hard evidence that hasn’t been debunked.
