TRIGGER WARNING: Discussion of domestic, emotional, and physical abuse.
US Twitch and OnlyFans star Amouranth revealed that she is married, much to her fans' surprise and that her husband is abusing her and forcing her to stream, during an emotional phone call on her livestream.
Kaitlyn Siragusa, who goes by Amouranth online, streams regularly on Twitch to her 5.9 million followers and creates content on OnlyFans as one of the top creators on the adult site.
During a stream on Saturday, Siragusa dropped a bomb to her fans, revealing she had a husband and accusing him of emotionally abusing her, explaining she’s living in a ‘fancy prison’.
The original video of the stream has since been removed from her Twitch channel although videos of the distressing video are now circulating online.
The conversation quickly turned aggressive between her and her mystery husband, as you can hear him gaslighting and manipulating her down the phone.
You can watch the heartbreaking situation below.
WARNING: This footage may distress some viewers.
Siragusa questioned her husband on the phone, saying "why did you say you were going to kill my dogs?"
To which he denied it, replying "leave the house" before yelling abuse at her over the phone.
She continues to explain in the heartbreaking video that her husband didn't allow her to tell her audience that she was married, to which she said "our relationship would be better if we just stream it."
"You want me to tell them that I'm single, it's about to be true," the.28-year-old streamer known for her ASMR videos explained.
Known for her hot tub meta - a term used to describe a sub-genre of Twitch where females stream in bikinis while in a hot tub - she claims her husband saw it as an 'opportunity', forcing her to tell her viewers she was single as it would 'ruin the business model' if they knew she was married.
"The therapist even told him that it's a form of emotional abuse and that I'm living in a fancy prison," Siragusa says.
She explained that all of her social accounts have two-factor authentication connected to her husband's number and that he’s threatened to ‘burn’ all of her money in court.
"It keeps you there with the fear and the threats if you're going to do something to your animals, and then he's nice again and says everything is going to be ok," Siragusa said.
Further on in the video, she shows text messages to the camera between her and her husband where he calls her a "dumb fuck", threatens to throw her merch off a balcony, delete her social media accounts, and shut down her bank account.
The stream ended abruptly with her assistant entering the room and asking whether she’d like to take her medication.
Fans of the 28-year-old streamer, known for her ASMR videos, have expressed their concern for her safety across social media.
American video game developer Brianna Wu wrote: “For fellow people over 35, Amouranth is one of the top Twitch streamers in the world.
“And in my opinion, is subjected to a level of degradation and abuse that would make most of us leave public life forever.”
Popular streamer Ludwig Ahgren has since said in a video that he reached out to Amouranth's assistant and she is 'safe and ok'.
On October 17, a member of Amouranth’s team published a tweet claiming that the streamer is safe and that police had visited her home “multiple times.”
Earlier this morning, the star took to Twitter, announcing she was going live on Twitch for the first time since announcing her husband's alleged abuse.
Although before she could begin the stream, she took to Twitter explaining that someone had called law enforcement and she’d ‘be back later.
We’re crossing our fingers that Katilyn can escape this situation safely and send all our love to her in this difficult time.
