Many of their devoted fans started to wonder if the two had ended their relationship, and rumors about cheating began circulating. On June 4, Gabrielle posted a video and confirmed that she had broken up with Jack.
Why did Jack and Gab break up? Read on to find out what Gabrielle said in her video.
Why did Jack and Gab break up?
Though Jack and Gabrielle generally post joint content, Gabrielle went solo with her "We Broke Up" video. While crying, Gabrielle explained that her breakup was unexpected, and that she was really nervous about disappointing her fans. She said that her viewers have gotten her through tough times in the past, and that they were her friends when she had no one else.
She explained that the two had ended their relationship a while ago, but that she was taking time to process it before talking about it on YouTube.
"In life, things don't always go as planned...." she began in her video. "No matter what is thrown at you in life, it is important to stay happy and to stay positive and optimistic."
Gabrielle went on to say that she didn't want her fans to hate her or be upset that things have changed for her.
"I'm not currently in a relationship with Jack, and I hate to say it. I was in this relationship for so long, since I was 15 until I was almost 20, so I don't know who I am without him," she continued. "I thought I'd be married to him one day. I thought I would have the rest of my life with him. But things change. I'm sorry, because I feel like, for some reason, I let you down."
Gabrielle did not discuss why exactly she and Jack ended their relationship. At this time, Jack has not posted any comment about the split. Neither has explicitly said whether or not they will continue putting content up on their "Jack and Gab" page. She did celebrate getting 2 million subscribers on the joint channel in her Instagram stories on June 5.
Gabrielle is going to continue making solo videos on her YouTube channel.
While the status of her "Jack and Gab" channel is somewhat up in the air right now, Gabrielle is definitely still focused on her own social media accounts.
"I'm not just going to disappear. I'm going to continue to try to make some happy videos because we all need that right now," she continued. "We need a little positivity."
In an emotional part of her video, Gabrielle asked her fans to stick with her so they can help her figure out who she is.
"I just want to be Gabrielle Moses right now, and I don't even know who that is," Gabrielle said.
Gabrielle posted a follow-up video entitled "UPDATE, Must Watch" on June 4. In it, she said that she's also going to be posting more fitness content and that she will develop that into a lifestyle brand that includes fan interactions.
She concluded her second video by profusely thanking her viewers for their support.
