Charles and Alli Trippy, stars of the popular Internet Killed Television video channel, announced they are getting divorced. Charles Trippy revealed the separation in a YouTube clip on his CTFxC (Charles Trippy Friends Core) vlog, which documented his life with Alli.
“I don’t really know how to do this or say this, because I’ve literally tried six times and I’ve deleted the video six different times. So I figured this time I was just going to be completely straight forward and honest with you guys. ...
“Over the past couple of months, Alli and I have just not been getting along. We just haven’t been happy. … We have been arguing a lot more than normal. And it’s just been getting worse and worse, and we’ve just becoming more and more unhappy and stressed out, both of us."
"So we’ve both decided that it was unfair for both of us to keep moving this direction if we’re both unhappy and stressed," Charles continued. "So we decided that we will be separating.”
Shortly after announcing his breakup from Alli, Charles Trippy also posted the below message on his Twitter page.
Some people say I've been very unlucky with all the crappy things I've gone through, I like to think of it as that I'm just living
