Streamer and content creator Kaitlyn Siragusa, aka Amouranth, said on camera earlier today that she has been the subject of abuse, with her husband accused of making a series of manipulative threats against her.
Content warning: abuse
In a video streamed earlier today, Amouranth is seen on the phone with a man she says is her husband, who can initially be heard denying Amouranth’s claims that he has made threats to kill her dogs. The man later claims to be in control of Amouranth’s bank accounts.
Amouranth says her husband has at times forced her to stream against her wishes, later showing a series of text messages calling her a “stupid fuck” among other violent threats such as dumping her luggage off a hotel balcony and deleting her social media presence. The messages also show threats to “blow” $500,000 of Amouranth’s money by donating it to a bird sanctuary.
Her husband is also accused of forcing her to post content, such as telling her to “commit to the laugh because it was a good financial opportunity” and continuing to post a large number of “hot tub” videos, even when she didn’t want to, or drove her to participate in events like long races because he had made threats against her.
Despite being a prominent public figure for years now, this is the first time Amouranth has publicly discussed his marriage; she said earlier today that it was for what her husband said were commercial reasons, as he believed that if she had to reveal she was married it would “destroy the business model”.
“You want me to tell them I’m single”, she says at one point, “it’s about to be true, you piece of shit”.
Amouranth also says in the video that her husband has been seeing a therapist for her behavior, which was described as “a form of mental abuse,” and that she has been living in what is essentially a “fancy prison.”
While the footage isn’t available on Amouranth’s Twitch page, this Twitter thread by @HUN2R, which spans four videos, covers most of the claims:
