25-Year-Old Dutch YouTube star NikkieTutorials revealed on Monday that she is a transgender woman. However, the young woman did not come out on her own accord.
”When I was younger, I was born in the wrong body,, which means I am transgender,” Nikkie revealed in the video.
According to the beauty vlogger, she began identifying as a girl at the young age of 6. Years later, she began hormone therapy at the age of 14 years old before fully transitioning at 19.
Allegedly, a group of individuals threatened to leak her sexuality to the blogs, forcing the young woman to make the admission herself in a 17-minute video posted to her YouTube channel titled “I’m Coming Out.”
“I have been blackmailed by people who wanted to leak my story to the press,” She confessed.
”At first, it was frightening. It was frightening to know there were people out there that are so evil that they can’t respect someone’s true identity,” she said.
Despite the awful act, Nikkie never revealed the identities of the blackmailers to her 12.4 million followers.
