What happened to ProJared?

Jared Knabenbauer aka ProJared shocked fans by releasing a statement on May 8, 2019, which read that he and his wife, Heidi O'Ferrall, have separated and filed for divorce. But this was just the tip of the iceberg as the events that followed were never anticipated by his fans. 

Shortly after this statement was posted, Heidi took to Twitter to expose her now soon-to-be ex-husband. According to Heidi, she had been blocked from Jared's social media so that she couldn't see his statement.

In a lengthy Twitter thread, she went on to say that Jared had been cheating on her for months with another YouTuber - Holly Conrad and they have been separated since February 2019. Conrad has been divorced from her husband, YouTuber Ross O' Donovan, since September 2018. At the time, Donovan stated that they decided to divorce because Conrad wanted to move to Seattle, where ProJared is based.

Heidi claimed that Jared resorted to asking for pics from fans on his secret Snapchat account after his Tumblr account was banned. Several fans have come forward on Twitter confirming that Jared sent them unsolicited explicit pictures.
