We The Kings band member, Charles Trippy and his wife, Alli have officially announced their separation, the reason being they were fighting too much preventing them leading a happy life. Some of you may know him better for his YouTube Channel, CTFxC. The two came across on camera as the perfect match, a couple that many would strive to emulate in their own life. Having made videos for the last five years, documenting their weddingCharle’s surgery for brain cancer, and many other major life moments all shared online with their 1.4 million and growing subscriber fan base.

WATCH THE OFFICIAL BREAKUP ANNOUNCEMENT VIDEO

It was a shock to many as Charles took to his YouTube Channel to break the news. Unfortunately they had already made their video for April Fool’s Day with the caption, ‘Well, IM PREGNANT!!’ With the last week of videos being upbeat and happy as usual it came as a shock to fans to learn the news with many questioning his legitimacy or whether it was a cruel late April Fool’s Day joke. It wasn’t and as we all know that the Internet can be a cruel and evil place as well as a positive outlet, many people began questioning whether one of the couple had been unfaithful.

There are many positives and negatives with putting your life online for the world to watch, judge, encourage, and follow. Many people have the perception that YouTuber’s lives are perfect and this can often cause viewers to become somewhat obsessed with following and showing their devote love to their favourite YouTuber. Vloggers as they are known for sharing their daily life have the power of editing to their own taste unlike an actual ‘reality’ television show. Many YouTuber’s like The Shaytards make the decision to only show the positive aspects of their life to try encourage their followers especially if they are having a bad day. Having said that, as viewers of people’s lives we need to remember these YouTubers are human too, they have feelings, issues, good days, bad days, tragedies, and so on. No one is perfect and neither are they.

Yeah, I could be one of the media who only writes the horrible stories but just like many of the Youtubers try to do, lets look at the positives rather than the negatives. In a world where separation and divorce is rampant, everyone at least knows someone who has been or is going through a divorce. It’s a difficult and upsetting time but throwing 1.4 million viewers in the mix is just unbearable to think of.

Although people probably won’t take their reason as the truth for their split because lets be honest everyone wants a juicy scandalous dramatic story. The mainstream media are forever feeding us lies and rumours.  Hopefully there are some respectful fans out there who will just wish the two of them the best and support their friendship.

    Alli is great, Charles is a great guy too but she really needs someone to look up to. She has dreams, youtubing with Charles is nice until it starts to be a waste of time.
    Chars, you did a good job, now go to school and get a real job.

    • You raise a good point.Thank you for your comment. Don’t forget to check out the latest article >> http://thecircular.org/alli-trippy-finally-responds-to-the-divorce-this-fking-sucks/

      I don’t want to start anything, and I respect why you posted what you did. It is your right to do so, but please check your facts before you post. In your post you wrote “Chars, you did a good job, now go to school and get a real job”. Well Charles did attend college and he has a degree. He has two jobs right now where he is making great money. He does YouTube as a full time job, and he is also in We The Kings. He is clearly doing well from himself because he is successfully renting a home and paying the bills with a lot of money left over by the looks of it. Charles and Alli also recently purchased a BMW probably 4 or more months ago, but that isn’t the point. The point is they are financially stable enough to do so. Although Charles cannot drive it because of the seizures he has, it has been shown in the vlogs. Alli has also taken a trip to Japan recently, which isn’t cheap, and does haul videos on her channel from higher-end things she has purchased like MAC cosmetics – which proves that she also has the extra funds to purchase luxury items, which is also her right. They also donated $16,000 of their own money to charity when they sold the brain cancer awareness t-shirts, so each charity would have the same amount of money donated by the CTFxC. Also, after Charles announced that they split up, Alli went to Vegas for a week to be with her best friend, Datev – where she also spent money. This all proves that they are doing well and they can afford to do multiple things. Like I said; I do not want to start anything, I just wanted to clear up that Charles does have a college degree and he does have a “real job”. In fact, he has two that allows him to live a good, comfortable lifestyle.

      • You have raised some great points Casey. Thank you for your comment. I think many people forget that YouTube can be an actual job no matter what the content may be.

    It is unfortunate that Charles and Alli have split up, and although none of us know exactly why, I will continue to support each of them with whatever they decide to do. And to be honest, we don’t deserve to know why they split up or what happened and I don’t think that Charles or Alli will ever come out and say why they ended their relationship. It was obviously something that has been going on since before they were married; as Alli hinted to in the video she posted this past week. I can only make my guesses, but I think it has something to do with Charles being in We The Kings because that is the last big thing that happened before they got married, but of course I could be, and probably am wrong. Alli has even said that she didn’t like that Charles wasn’t home a lot. I actually went back and watched the video that they made when they announced it in 2011, before they moved into their house. In the video you can tell that Charles is excited about it, but if you watch Alli the entire time, her excitement for it is genuine, but as the years went on, you could tell that she may have been getting more annoyed with Charles being gone all of the time, especially when he left for tour two days after their wedding. I mean honestly, who wouldn’t be upset with their spouse being on the road almost 300 days a year? Anyway, it is not my place to say why they broke up, and I don’t think it is something that they will be sharing with us any time soon, if ever. As I said, I will continue to support them individually just as much as I did when they were together. I wish them nothing but the best and I hope they can both find someone to that makes them happy.
