Ryan Higa, who has been doing YouTube skits for over a decade, confirmed his breakup with long-term partner Arden Cho in a March 15, 2020 video on his channel. Following the split, the YouTuber was dogged by cheating suspicions, which he debunked in a series of tweets.
Making Their Relationship Public
After playing each other’s love interests in Higa’s short film “Agents of Secret Stuff” in 2010, their followers flocked to the YouTube phenomenon and actress Cho.
Higa ultimately confirmed that he has been dating the actress for almost four years in March 2019. The YouTuber stated in the video titled “Revealing My Not-So-Secret GF” that the couple never meant to keep their relationship a secret, but that they were delaying making a public declaration.
Higa began the video by apologizing to his supporters for not publishing anything the previous week. The YouTube sensation explained that the missing video was due to his Valentine’s Day trip to Los Angeles with his girlfriend Cho.
Higa claimed in the video that he fell in love with the actress in 2015, after their second collaboration, and that they had been dating since then.
Everything good comes to an end.
The YouTube sketch artist revealed the pair’s breakup a year after they announced their romance.
Higa revealed that he recently split up with his five-year partner, actress Cho, in a video titled “My Midlife Crisis” on March 15, 2020.
In the video, the YouTuber apologized to his fans for not keeping up with his content, claiming that part of it was due to his split. Higa revealed that, despite not being the kind to open up about his personal life, many of his followers had predicted his breakup based on his social media. He only wanted to keep his YouTube fans informed.
In the video, the YouTuber revealed that the split was mutual rather than messy.
Allegations of Cheating
Cho reportedly posted a mysterious statement on her Instagram account following Higa’s video post, implying that the YouTuber had cheated on her during their relationship.
Cho mentioned in her series of stories that she was working on another melancholy tune. The lyrics of her story were as follows:
I despise you and your lies. It makes me wish I could go back in time / to a happier time before I named you mine. Many admirers of Cho felt the song was dedicated to Ryan.
With a Tweet, the YouTuber promptly debunked the claims, admitting that he did not cheat on Cho.
