Popular Twitch streamer Kaitlyn ‘Amouranth’ Siragusa announces that she is taking a break from online content creation.
Amouranth is one of the world’s most popular Twitch streamers, but she is taking a break from the platform and content creation in general. In a recent Twitch stream, Amouranth revealed that she is married and shared messages of her husband verbally abusing her. Amouranth disappeared from social media and Twitch for a short time in the aftermath of this stream, but recently returned to give fans an update on her situation.
In the initial Twitch stream, Amouranth revealed that her husband had a great deal of control over the couple’s finances, to the point where her accounts were set up with two-factor authorization under his name. In some of the text messages that he allegedly sent, there were threats that he would waste their money if she didn’t immediately respond to him. Amouranth said that he also threatened to leave her with $1 million and take the rest of their money with him.
After some radio silence, Amouranth returned to Twitch in a stream where she gave fans an update on the situation. In the return stream, Amouranth indicated that her husband was getting help for his behavior and that she had regained control of her finances. It was unclear if Amouranth would return to her grueling Twitch streaming schedule, but she has now announced that she is taking an indefinite break from content creation. Amouranth made the announcement on her official Twitter account, stating that she is not sure when she will be back.
Amouranth has a reputation for being one of the hardest-working Twitch streamers on the platform. Her frequent and long streams are a large part of the reason why she’s managed to be so successful, becoming the most-viewed female Twitch streamer and one of the most popular streamers in history. However, Amouranth suggested that working this hard wasn’t necessarily all her idea, saying she was stuck in a three- to five-hour sleep schedule. Amouranth also implied that she didn’t necessarily want to do the hot tub streams, but did so because her husband thought it was a good financial opportunity.
When Amouranth returns to Twitch streaming and content creation, it will be interesting to see if her content changes in any dramatic way. Amouranth has enough money to never stream again if she doesn’t want to, but she has such a large following online that she could also stream forever if that’s what she wants to do. Fans of the streamer will have to wait for Amouranth herself to share more updates about her situation and potential return stream.
