A divorce case is currently engulfing Félix Lengyel (@xQc) and Samantha Lopez (@AdeptTheBest) in controversy, even though they never officially married. According to documents obtained by Passionfruit, Lopez is claiming the pair entered a common law marriage in the state of Texas, and now she’s filing for divorce. The court is moving the case to trial on May 19.
While much remains uncertain regarding the specifics of Lopez and Lengyel’s situation, what unfolded, according to court documents, shows the perils of having a very public breakup as an influencer—and the fan harassment, career instability, and economic uncertainty that might follow.
