However, the pressures of showcasing their lives online, with both influencers amassing over 13 million TikTok followers individually, ultimately took a toll on their relationship. Nicky confessed that he felt confined within their cultivated image, admitting, “I lost myself in this relationship… I had to choose me and pick me first. And I think [Pierre] had to do the same, and that’s the direction we’re heading in.”
Pierre, also known as Pierre Amaury Crespeau, kept his response brief, sharing the news of their breakup on his Instagram Story on July 9 with a simple statement: “We broke up.” As a result of their separation, they will no longer feature each other on their social media accounts or their joint YouTube channel.
While the couple’s relationship has come to an end, Nicky is eager to embark on the next chapter of his life and rediscover his individuality. He expressed a desire to find his own voice and break free from the shadow of the brand they had created together. Moving forward, Nicky’s focus will be on reconnecting with himself and creating a platform where he can be his authentic self.
