Our hearts are breaking over this social media celeb split!
On Friday, Colleen Ballinger — AKA Miranda Sings — devastatingly announced that she and Joshua Evans are getting a divorce.
While sharing the sad news with her over 4 million subscribers, Colleen immediately broke down, saying:
“I am dreading making this video. I’m just going to say it. Joshua and I are getting a divorce. Man, that sucks to say out loud.”
But, Miz Ballinger stressed that her former flame didn’t wrong her in any way, adding:
“I want to start off by saying Joshua is a wonderful man, and I am so in love with him. This has nothing to do with he’s a bad person, or he did something horrible to me, or anything like that. He’s a good person and I love him.”
Instead, the singer clarified that they ultimately weren’t a good fit together:
“We have always had a very rocky relationship since the beginning. We’ve always butted heads, we’ve always fought, ever since we met, really. It’s never been a perfect relationship. … And, for a long time now, I’ve realized just how unhappy we both were. I want Joshua to be happy, and I can’t make him happy. This is what I feel needs to happen.”
The funny lady was immensely emotional in the 12-minute clip, expressing:
“This really sucks. It’s really sh*tty. And I’m really sorry. I feel like I have disappointed all of you. And I disappointed myself. I totally failed.”
The brunette also announced that she’ll be taking a break from the internet to heal her broken heart in the comforting company of her loved ones.
Meanwhile, Josh made his own YouTube video, exclaiming that he doesn’t want to pull the plug on their relationship, explaining it was Colleen’s choice:
“I want it to be known that I am not choosing this divorce. I don’t want this divorce. I want her, but I truly believe that she thinks she’s making the right decision right now. I can’t make her decisions for her. I can only decide stuff on my own, and my decision is to not end anything. But, it’s her choice, and I respect her life, as well.”
The 32-year-old also insisted that he never cheated on his longtime love:
“I will say that I was faithful the entire time. It’s nothing like that, at all, in any way. I would never, ever break that trust with her. So, this is not anything like that. She didn’t do it, either. I’m not saying she did that.”
The Georgia native eventually broke down as he said:
“I love her. I’m in love with her. I wish nothing but success and happiness for her, and that just does not involve me anymore.”
He ended his six-minute video with these heartbreaking written messages (below):
