Kaitlyn “Amouranth” Siragusa, one of the highest-profile streamers on Twitch, revealed that she is married. Also, she claims that her husband domestic abused her. So she supplied evidence of her husband’s abusive behavior in a stream early Sunday morning. Streamer Amouranth alleged that her husband threatened and controlled her finances, forced her to stream more than she was willing, forced her to leave her house and threatened to kill her dogs.
Streamer Amouranth provides video clip evidences
There are four videos clipped from Streamer Amouranth’s stream that show the abuse. The first one shows her talking on speakerphone to her husband. It’s uncertain if he knew he was on-stream based on the clips. Siragusa questions why he threatened to kill her dogs, and the man demands she leave the house. He also calls her a liar and denies that he threatened to kill her dogs.
A Kotaku interview from September shows a net income of over $1.7 million per month from Streamer Amouranth’s OnlyFans, Twitch, Patreon, and others. In the next video, Siragusa describes her husband’s control over her finances. So she shows his text messages about threatening her to spend her money without her permission. He also threatens to leave her with “only $1 million” if she took action against him.
A form of psychological abuse
Streamer Amouranth has been known to work 12-hour shifts on-camera. She also showed text logs of her husband insulting her about her streaming schedule. In addition, Amouranth quotes a therapist who described her situation as “a form of psychological abuse” and “a fancy prison.” The final part of Siragusa’s stream shows her responding to a woman off-camera asking if she has taken her medicine, a question which seems to confuse Siragusa.
These videos suggest she is being exploited and abused by her partner. She claims she wanted to keep his own existence hidden to better sell the fantasy of Amouranth. Many fans are concerned about Siragusa and her well-being. Many also praised her bravery for sharing the abuse she has suffered. What is your thought about the situation?
