Robert Paz’s wife of 11 years, Bonny Paz, called Child Protective Services six months after he moved out of their home (he reportedly moved out due to an affair). She told Insider she called CPS after finding out Robert Paz allegedly sexually abused her children.

Bonny Paz has four sons from a previous marriage and a daughter with Paz. According to a tweet by Insider journalist Steven Asarch, it was Bonny Paz’s two youngest sons who made the accusation. 

Bonny Paz told Insider that police carried out “forensic interviews” with the children and that she learned of Robert Paz’s arrest on Thursday. 

The Daily Dot verified with the King County Correctional Facility, where Paz is being held, that he was arrested on Thursday and is facing one count of child molestation and one count of child rape. 

His bail is set at $200,000.

Paz rose to fame in 2009 when he made a Guinness World Record for the highest aggregate score in Rock Band 2 with drums, according to Insider. He has been on Twitch since 2010. 

Paz’s Twitch profile was not available when the Daily Dot ran a search for it on Wednesday. 

His Twitter account, where he boasts over 8,400 followers, was still active, however. His last tweet was posted on March 23, two days before his arrest. 

The Daily Dot has reached out to his Twitter account and will update this report if a representative responds.
