ProJared and Heidi’s relationship
Before their infamous breakup, the Heidi ProJared relationship was probably one of the most significant talking points among the couple’s fans. In 2014, ProJared and O’Ferrall got married after dating for about two years. Years later, the ProJared Heidi marriage took an unfortunate turn when the renowned cosplayer accused her husband of having an affair.
According to the renowned ProJared ex-wife, her then-husband was cheating on her with another cosplayer. The accusations worsened in 2019 when the-then ProJared’s wife revealed that her husband’s affair was with Holly Conrad.
By this time, ProJared had posted about an imminent divorce on his social media accounts. He stated that despite his efforts to make the marriage work, the couple was filing for divorce. In response to the post, the then ProJared wife Heidi mentioned her discovery of the affair and added that the renowned gamer had already blocked her.
In what was an unexpected turn of events, the then Pro Jared wife stated that she had proof (photographs and conversations) of her husband’s affair. She accused him of lying to her about his commitment while promising Holly that he would break up with Heidi.
When speaking of the divorce, the renowned YouTube gamer told his fans that while the announcement may have come as an upsetting surprise, the decision was for the sake of his and Heidi’s happiness. He went on to tell his fans to expect gossip, speculation, and rumors surrounding the divorce.
He asked his fans to observe the proceedings keenly and come up with their own conclusions. He further added that the divorce decision came after individual and couple’s therapy sessions involving him and O’Ferrall.
Heidi, on the other hand, responded to this statement in a tweet, saying that ProJared told his friends a version of events that omitted his infidelity and portrayed her as an aggressive and unreasonable person.
Amidst all the drama, Holly Conrad replied to the allegations by saying that Heidi’s utterances were just hyperbolic statements used to demonize strangers. Holly’s statement ended with her saying that she only wanted ‘the best happiness for those around her’ and that she would ‘never hurt anyone.’
Holly signed off by stating that she would be leaving Twitter for a time. It is reported that the Heidi-ProJared scandal first started when the gamer, whose real name is Jared Knabenbauer, was, according to The Verge, requesting inappropriate photos from fans.
Knabenbauer later denied the accusations stating that the allegations against him about being a predator against underage people were fundamentally false. He said that his accusers misled or lied to people for money and attention.
