The Top Ten

This was a revolution in internet star breakups. They were together for a whopping 10+ years. Eventually they shocked the whole internet in a wakeup call when they announced they broke up.

SO SAD! They were together for so long and then they just broke up... They were truly the best YT Couple ever! I miss them so much, it's like they don't even post anymore. :(

The Contenders
11 PopularMMOs & GamingWithJen

I stopped watching them after hearing this.
I literally cried.
They were the first youtubers I ever watched.
When I heard they broke up something broke in me.
They took me through the bad days.
They took me through the tough days.
Watching their videos was the only thing that kept me sane.
I can’t believe that this happened.

12 Kenzie Ziegler & Isaak Presley

They broke up after less than a year together after Isaak Presley cheated on Kenzie. So much potential for a good future for them together wasted.

13 Annie LeBlanc & Asher Angel

They broke up during the COVID-19 pandemic.

14 Liza Koshy & David Dobrik

For years Liza Koshy & David Dobrik were some of the best couples you could ever imagine on YouTube. They'e belonged together in ways you couldn't imagine. In 2018 they released a video where they broke up, shocking YouTube & world, yet breaking the internet with such tragedy. Yet it was a historic breakup on YouTube. They happened to be some of the most popular YouTubers & had the best potential at being together for their life, but their breakup was completely unexpected & no one saw it coming. It was viewed a jaw-dropping 14M times in the 1st 24 hours, a record for David & Liza as well as non-music videos (by comparison, Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus got ~12.3M views in 24 hours, making it Miley's biggest YT debut). It currently has over 67M views & no other video by them came close to this. Yet even to this day we're not over the fact they broke up out of the blue.

15 Lucas Cruikshank & Jennifer Veal

Jennifer Veal was Nanny Agatha from Jessie & collaborated & made friends with Lucas Cruikshank for over a year, 2013 to 2014, posting random videos until they broke up & now she has her own solo channel & Lucas's is now just Lucas.

16 Jeffree Star & Nathan Schwandt

This hit YouTube & their fans really hard. Jeffree Star (known for makeup) & Nathan Schwandt broke up after 5 years together. This was worse than David Dobrik & Liza Koshy's breakup & at that time the worst since Jaclyn & Jon Hill's. His video's by far the saddest in early 2020.

17 Jaclyn & Jon Hill

Jaclyn Hill's not only known for being a beauty guru, but was known for her relationship with Jon Hill for 8.8 years until she broke up with him, shocking her fanbase & YouTube. We haven't had a breakup like this at the time since Jeana Smith & Jesse Wellens' breakup after 10 years though. Never forget.

18 Scotty Sire & Kristen McAtee

After 5 years together Scotty Sire & Kristen McAtee broke up on February 5th, 2020. It’ll never be the same life for them or their content anymore.

19 Kylie Jenner & Travis Scott

They were together & even once hinted potential future marriage (yet Kylie gave birth to her daughter Stormi) but instead they broke up after 2.5 years.

20 Katie Betzing & Josh Brueckner

They just broke up after 2 years. Just like Liza & David.

21 Laurdiy & Alex Wassabi

this was so sad! They were a freaking power couple and no one wanted them to breakup. Well, they're both happy now but the legend of LAUREX lives on...

22 Damon Dominique & Jo Franco

In December 2019 they broke up after years together. They set up their own individual channels.

23 Vanessa Hudgens & Austin Butler

They were together for 8.5 years until they broke up on January 14th, 2020, hitting the community harder than Jeffree Star’s or Nathan Schwanz’s & was like the biggest breakup after Jaclyn & John Hill’s. They were a great couple & we’re beyond heartbroken to see them go.
