- Husband of former YouTuber Jenna Marbles said their home was broken into, the Daily Mail reports.
- In a reported Instagram story, he said he pepper-sprayed an intruder and called the police.
- They recently got married and offered a rare glimpse into their lives since Marbles retired in 2020.
Julien Solomita, the husband of former YouTuber Jenna Mourey who is better known as Jenna Marbles, said he subdued an intruder who entered their home after two months of harassment, according to the Daily Mail.
The outlet reported that Solomita shared an Instagram story to his 1.3 million followers detailing the event on January 2. The story is no longer available to view, but screenshots published by the outlet showed text reading, “Today someone broke into our house. a woman, that we don’t know, entered our home unannounced.”
It went on to say Solomita “immediately subdued” the intruder with pepper spray after she entered their property through the back door, and he was able to lock her back out.
According to the screenshots, the Instagram story said that Solomita called the police, and a person was apprehended and arrested. TMZ reported that the incident took place in San Fernando Valley, California, and Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) “came across” a person on their way to the home, who was taken to hospital. No arrest was reported by TMZ, and the LAPD did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
The screenshots published by the Daily Mail also said the person was a “complete stranger” but had been “harassing me at my home” over the course of two months.
“This was something that for safety reasons I was doing my best to keep offline but we were notified that a media outlet had information on today’s event and are planning on running a story so I wanted you to hear what happened from me first,” the screenshot read, adding that Solomita, Mourey, and their dogs were all safe after the incident.
On December 22, Solomita announced on Instagram that he and Mourey had gotten married. The caption of the post, which showed various photos of Mourey in a wedding dress and him wearing a suit, read, “married otters <3” and received over 1.6 million likes.
Mourey was the most subscribed-to female YouTuber for several years and currently has over 19.8 million followers on her dormant channel. In June 2020, Mourey announced she was leaving the platform, and apologized for a number of offensive videos she had made in 2011, including an imitation of Nicki Minaj and a racist joke about Asian men, Insider reported. She has since been largely absent from the internet.
Solomita and Mourey did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
