YouTube star Nikkie De Jager and her fiance suffered a terrifying ordeal when they were held at gunpoint during a home invasion robbery at their property.
The star, who shot to fame under her Nikkie Tutorials moniker online, took to social media following the incident with a short statement on Saturday (August 8, 2020), confirming she and Dylan Drossaers were severely traumatized, though physically unharmed.
“Earlier today one of my biggest nightmares became reality when we got robbed under gun point at our own home,” she shared. “Dylan and myself got attacked but physically we’re okay. Mentally it’s a whole other story.
“I’m writing this message for now to let you know that we are ‘okay’ and safe,” the star, who lives in Uden, the Netherlands, concluded. “Thank you for understanding as I take the next couple of days to myself.”
According to local reports, at least three people raided their home, one of whom was suspected of having a gun. Local police reported the three suspects fled the scene and that one of the victims received “superficial” injuries, but it’s unclear if that was Nikkie or Dylan.
“Just reported a robbery on a house in #Uden. The perpetrators threatened the residents with possibly a firearm and took an unknown loot from them,” police representatives tweeted.
It’s believed the burglary happened after Nikkie took her parents out to dinner.
