On October 25, YouTuber Trisha Paytas announced that, surprise! She's getting married! "I'm engaged! It all happened very quickly," Trisha says in her 12-minute video, telling her 4.9 million YouTube subscribers that the wedding is happening next Friday. The chapel is booked, the NSFW YouTuber already ordered her garter from Etsy, she's got a huge sparkly engagement ring, and she's also got the receipts to prove she's not bluffing.
Who is Trisha Paytas marrying?
In her engagement announcement, 31-year-old Trisha purposely left out who she's getting hitched to. All we know is that they're private (even though they're "well-known" and "public"), and that they're "hot."
Who can this person be?! Trisha's been linked to YouTuber Jason Nash (the two dated in 2017 but split February 2019). She's dated Michael Anthony Hall, Roger Bart, and Sean van der Wilt. Trisha has also claimed she hooked up with Aaron Carter (there was a photo of them kissing).
Obviously there are Trisha Paytas marriage theories abound.
Some seem to think she's actually trolling everyone and isn't marrying anyone besides maybe herself.
Oh. My. God. No. The fact that you won’t say who you’re marrying says a lot.— Josie 💀 (@bisexuwale) October 25, 2019
A lot of fans are still really bothered by Trisha's offensive transgender identity announcement, and aren't about to let that go. In a video titled "I AM TRANSGENDER (FEMALE TO MALE)," the YouTuber says that she identifies more as a gay man.
"In my head, I feel like I'm a transgender female to male, but also like a drag queen," Trisha added. The LGBTQ+ community took offense, understandably, and felt that Trisha was using her identity as clickbait. Trisha later posted an apology video, addressing the backlash.
A lot of people still haven't forgiven Trisha, and feel like the engagement announcement is a distraction from the recent backlash, or simply a ploy to get views.
Didn’t you say you were a guy a month ago or something like that .....— I don’t care so shut up (@FlyingV80524983) October 25, 2019
Some think Trisha is shading Shane Dawson, since his Conspiracy palette collab with Jeffree Star launches the same day as her wedding.
Most of her YouTube fans aren't taking the engagement super seriously.
But for real, is Trisha actually getting married?
Nobody knows for sure. Maybe? Maybe not. It's suspicious that this announcement is coming so soon after the recent transgender identity backlash. People are right to doubt the authenticity of the YouTuber's engagement, especially since she won't reveal her fiancé's name.
Wouldn't she have to eventually? Or does she plan on keeping their identity a secret forever? We're just not buying it!
But fear not, it's only a matter of time we'll get an update from Trisha herself.
