They also made many YouTube videos together during their three-and-a-half-year-long relationship, and fans began to love the dynamic between the two. But things went south in 2017.
Gonzalez was 18 when she and Leyva began dating, and she opened up about how they rushed into living together immediately. The relationship then took all the wrong turns, and Gonzalez just felt they were two different people.
It was heartbreaking for both that it didn’t work out for the couple, but it was the fans to were most vocal. In fact, both Gonzalez and Leyva had to openly ask that their fans be more sensitive and stop posting negative comments and questions regarding their split.
