Actress and influencer Acacia Kersey (née Brinley) has caused her fair share of controversy over the years. Getting her start on Tumblr, Acacia was seen as an it girl. But as her following grew, many folks started to notice that she was copying content from other creators. Not only that, but fans accused of her being racist after some of her old tweets resurfaced. Quickly, Acacia became the girl that everyone loved to hate.
In October 2021, she announced that she would be taking a break from social media. In her now-deleted Instagram post per Buzzfeed, she wrote: "Time to move on. The negatives of being an influencer finally outweigh the positives." She continued, "This role has done an immense amount of damage to me, my relationships, my financial stability, and my view of the world."
Acacia kept to her promise and left the internet. But in late 2022, she started popping up on social media again. Now that she's back, fans are trying to play catch up on her life. There's speculation that she and her husband Jairus Kersey got divorced. Is that true? Here's what we know.
Did Acacia Brinley and Jairus Kersey split?
In a TikTok posted on Dec. 7, Acacia compiled some of her moments from over the past year to show fans what she had been up to. "While I’ve been away, lots of joy, lots of loss. Just happy to be here," she wrote in the caption.
The video showed the highs and lows of her hiatus. Viewers saw both Acacia happy, as well as in tears.
Earlier this year, many users started speculating that Acacia and Jairus had parted ways on Twitter. These suspicions were further backed by a comment Acacia left in response to one of her fans on TikTok.
"Hello Mrs.," wrote one fan on her video. Acacia responded with, "More like Ms."
