NikkieTutorials, an extremely popular YouTuber with more than 13 million subscribers, said her home in Uden, Netherlands, was broken into over the weekend.
The beauty expert, whose real name is Nikkie de Jager, shared a statement about the incident on Instagram, August 9.
“Earlier today one of my biggest nightmares became reality when we got robbed under gun point at our own home,” she wrote. “Dylan and myself got attacked, but physically we’re okay. Mentally it’s a whole other story.”
De Jager and her fiancée Dylan Drossaers are both “‘okay’ and safe,” she said, but she plans to “take” the next couple of days to recover.
According to Insider, Dutch news outlets reported that at least three people were part of the break-in which occurred at around 4 p.m. on August 8. Local police tweeted that at least one resident in the house had “superficial injuries.”
Fellow influencers reached out to De Jager with messages of support on her Instagram post.
“Oh my God I’m so happy you guys are okay,” wrote YouTube personality GiGi Gorgeous.
“I hope you guys are ok! I’m so sorry!! Thank god you are not hurt at least physically,” said Sandra Lee, a TV personality.
