dating

An influencer couple have shared all the details of their breakup, and we can't look away.

Goodness.

Grab the popcorn and boil the kettle, because this is one helluva messy split.

You see, this is a story of two influencers who most definitely should not have access to their social media right now, given the amount of dirty laundry they’re hanging out there. But alas, they’re influencers. What else should we expect?

Alissa Violet, a model with nine million followers on Instagram, and Richard Bengston (FaZe Banks), Youtuber and owner of eSports company FaZe, dated for two years before their split six months ago.

I love the way you look at me

It seemed civil. At the time.

But a few days ago, a fan tweeted Alissa asking, “How did you find out you were being cheated on?”

She replied: “I was asleep upstairs with our dogs and he wasn’t next to me so I checked our guest house and caught him naked in bed with a random girl.”

Within mere hours of the surprising tweet, FaZe Banks tweeted a simple “I love you” in response.

Which was the catalyst for a slew of responses from Alissa questioning her ex’s supposed love for her.

In response to his tweet, Alissa shared a screenshot of the private (now public) text messages between the two. In the exchange, Alissa details the alleged times he cheated on her and accused him of breaking eight of her phones.

“Did you ‘love me’ when you were hooking up with a random whore in our home?” Alissa asked.

“Did you ‘love me’ when you snap chatted that girl in Vegas to come f**k you when I was at dinner with you?”

FaZe responded: “Dude wtf is this? I always kept my promises.”

“Did you ‘love me’ when I was in Orlando for my cousin’s wedding and you hooked up with a girl in our bed?” she continued.

And it only continued from there:

But it was Alissa’s tweet about him being a bad parent to their shared dogs that was the moment he decided to reply.

“Did you ‘love me’ when i’ve been asking you for five months to help out with OUR dogs but you told me to ship them to my parents in ohio because it was ‘too much for you’?” Alissa asked.

“I couldn’t take care of them? I want them to have a good life? Why are we doing this online?” he defended himself.

FaZe also put out a statement responding to all the allegations levelled against him by his ex-girlfriend.

“I could spend the next few minutes listing all the horrible things Alissa has done to me and why we didn’t work out and why I did what I did,” he began.

“I think I speak for both of us when I say the love was and always will be a very REAL thing. Which is why I refuse to let our very intimate, private relationship become a spectacle online.

“I truly do wish the best for you,” he said directly to Alissa. “I won’t ever say a bad word about her, so sorry for everyone who wanted another sip of tea. You won’t find that here.”

What. A. Rollercoaster.
