“Doing all this in a deliberately balanced way is a compassionate approach.”
Last October, we reported that Kaitlyn Siragusa, also known as Amouranth, revealed that she is married and that her husband controls her finances, content and verbally abuses her if she does not listen to him. She made it public by live-streaming a phone conversation with said husband who criticized her, not knowing she was on the broadcast. He also reportedly forced her to pose as a single girl because telling the public about marriage “would ruin the business model.” Since splitting up, she has taken control of her finances, her streams and the type of content she posts.
After a short break from streaming, she spoke about her harrowing experience. But she also made it clear to her viewers that she was doing better. Last November, she revealed that she streams more Overwatch than hot tubs. “90 days ago I used the hot tub 50 percent or more, now it’s less than 10 percent.” However, she still hasn’t completely stopped creating NSFW content. You might think it’s because he’s giving her views and money, but Amouranth revealed otherwise.
“The most ignorant approach I’ve come across is people saying ‘LOL, you didn’t change the content – liar.’ I directly employ close to 20 people, indirectly (services, editing, etc.) I pay/work with 9 more people,” she recently tweeted. “To do 180 degrees in an instant would be selfish and irresponsible. I gave my ‘lewd’ employees 60 days notice telling them that they could find other employment but their positions would be blocked for 2 months.”
She went on to reveal that she has moved many of her staff to other content projects and only maintains NSFW content for a while while things fall into place.
“Doing all of this in a deliberately balanced way is a compassionate approach,” she continued. “In the end, I was able to find new positions for every staff member. Only one person has chosen to find a job off my payroll on a given 60-day runway.”
She ended with a strong message about how she now does things her way and that people will always find a way to try to put her down.
