Pedro Ruiz III, 22, and his girlfriend Monalisa Perez, 19, had a YouTube channel that they were putting a lot of effort into. The channel, filled with prank videos and challenge videos, shows what appears to be a normal, happy, young couple vying for Internet fame. However, on June 26, there was a tragic accident while filming another prank video for their channel, according to Twin Cities Pioneer Press. The Halstad, Minn. couple was filming a prank where Perez, who is pregnant with their second child, shot a gun at Ruiz III, who was holding a book. The book was supposed to stop the bullet from hitting Ruiz III, however, that was not how it went down. The bullet went through the book, killing Ruiz III.
Perez tweeted before the incident that Ruiz III was the one who convinced her to perform the stunt.
Me and Pedro are probably going to shoot one of the most dangerous videos ever?? HIS idea not MINE?
According to the Twin Cities Pioneer Press, Perez said that Ruiz III produced a book that he had used to test the prank and showed her that the bullet was stopped by the book.
Twin Cities Pioneer Press reports that Perez told police officer who responded to the 911 call that Ruiz III came up with the prank to try to get more followers on their YouTube channel. Their 3-year-old daughter was a witness to the accident. First responders attempted life-saving procedures when they arrived at the scene but it was too late for Ruiz III, who died from a gunshot wound to the chest.
Perez has been arrested and is being charged with second-degree manslaughter. The New York Times reports that Perez faces up to 10 years in prison, a $20,000 fine, or both for the death of Ruiz III. She is currently out on bail.
YouTuber Salice Rose has been notoriously private about her love life… up until last week when she introduced us all to her new bae. The Rose Family has erupted with joy for Salice in finding, if not love, then at least baeship with Brilynn. We’ve never seen another face that Salice has dated.
Then, one of Salice’s exes launched a YouTube channel of her own to explicitly talk about her relationship with Salice. In the video, Chas vents all her frustrations with the relationship and publicly airs out her side of the story. According to Chas, Salice was verbally and emotionally abusive, didn’t want her to have friends, and even donated her father’s ashes to Goodwill after one day’s notice to remove her stuff from Salice’s apartment.
Chas F’s channel already has 47k subscribers, and all her videos are about Salice Rose.
She created the channel about a week ago, just after Salice introduced her followers to her new girlfriend, Brilynn. According to Chas, it was hard to watch the video because just two weeks prior, they were “in each other’s phones” and talking about marriage, but Salice wanted to focus on her music.
Salice Rose has responded with a nearly hour and a half long retaliation video.
“A message to my ex: I hope lying on my name all over social media made you happy,” Salice tweeted. “I hope you got all the fame you wanted. Because of YOU I’m in waves of depression. You spoke, my turn.”
In the video, she goes point by point to respond to each of Chas’s allegations.
Salice actually made the point of writing down each point that Chas made and tells her fans that the video would be the first and the last time she talks about that relationship again.
Chas’ story is that Salice didn’t let her have any other jobs because she didn’t want her to be too far from her. Salice’s side, corroborated by her friends commenting in the background, is that Chas quit all her jobs of her own volition. According to Salice, she would absolutely tell her to “come home,” but didn’t expect her to actually quit her jobs.
According to Chas, Salice had the idea to hire her and their relationship started to fall apart from there.
Chas shared that she had a feeling that taking the job would take away time from their relationship. They were spending all day together, and Salice takes her job very seriously. According to Chas, that made it difficult to spend time together without tension. Chas also said that she wasn’t getting paid enough to support anything other than her car bills. They started fighting, and Chas says that she didn’t have the opportunity to make any new friends.
The Rose Family is largely very sus of Chas’ accusations.
Chas said that she asked Salice to take on more responsibilities because she felt degraded by being paid to pick up dog poop. Salice had two dogs and Chas also had two dogs. According to Chas, the moment that she talked about getting other jobs, Salice started to treat her with disrespect and gaslit her.
Salice Rose opened her retaliation video by calling several Goodwills to ask if they accept human remains. They all said ‘no.’
Chas says that Salice was going to mail her stuff out to Florida after they separated. Chas said she was calling and leaving voicemails to a mutual friend to arrange for Chas’s dad’s stuff to be mailed back to Florida. Through tears, Chas shares that two months after she moved out, she received an email with the subject line, “Notice of Right to Reclaim Abandoned Property” on June 7th.
One fan did some deep diving on Chas’ Instagram back to the day after that email, June 8th.
“I saw your ex’s vids and for a sec she made me think that you were the bad guy here,” tweeted @nvmexme. “But i mean everyone make mistakes yk? Anyways i kinda stalked her ig account and noticed that the same day say said that her things were going to be ‘donated’ Which was on june 8.”
Salice shared the email with her fans which clearly states that she gave Chas a month and a day from the receipt of the email to reclaim her property, which had already been in her apartment for two months.
There has been an outpour of support for Salice Rose after she responded to her ex-girlfriend’s video.
Salice laid out her counterargument in an hour and twenty-minute video and went point by point off of Chas F’s video. She made a real point of taking on Chas F’s statement that Salice didn’t want her to have friends. As Salice lays out, she values friendships and argues that it is better for the relationship if both people have friends to hang out with outside of the relationship.
In other news, Salice’s debut R&B track became an overnight bop.
Salice has been teasing an entrance into a music career, and fans are shooketh that it’s actually here. Salice’s new bae, Brilynn commented, “Congratulations babe.”
Relationships are messy, but “Lullaby” is as smooth as can be.
Fans already can’t get enough of her new song.
Some are calling it the new summer bop. It does seem like fans have long been waiting for something like this from Salice Rose and they are letting everyone know that they need to check out this new song.
Watch Salice Rose’s response to her ex-girlfriend’s videos below!
YouTuber and poderosa extraordinaire Salice Rose just gave the Rose Family a very vulnerable inside look at her love life, and fans are freaking. Completely out of the blue, Salice posted a video to her Twitter account with the caption, “The wait is over. I’m shaking I’m so nervous. You guys…..MEET MY GIRLFRIEND!”
Girl, we had no idea we were waiting for this and the Rose family loves seeing Salice be the most awkward she has ever been.
At first, we just see Salice in a trench coat in a closet confessing how nervous she is to introduce us to her.
“I’ve never posted someone I was with in my life on social media… This is a very, very big step of me to do, but I feel like you guys deserve that part of me,” she opens up in the video. She tells us that she loves us at least six times during what is obviously a very brave and nerve-wracking moment for the star.
Then, Salice has a wardrobe change and introduces her bae!
Salice just announced that her fanbase is officially known as “The Rose Family,” and everyone has their own reaction. Speaking on behalf of all singles is @torixgiselle who laments, “the world really is ending if salice is showing off her bae 😣😂”
Bae is so nervous she forgets to give us her name.
According to her brand new YouTube channel, already at 6,350 subscribers, she goes by Brilynn Ford. “I’m scared. I hope you guys trust me enough to accept this part of my life into your life and come on this journey with me and with us,” Salice tells us.
Brilynn is promising to publicly prank Salice, and she’s ready for it.
Salice tells us that Brilynn is very gullible and gets surprised so easily. Salice thinks she’ll be easy bait, but we’re not buying it.
The two are just dating right now, but Brilynn wants to lock Salice down.
When the camera holder asks them to talk more about their personal life and less about franks, Salice makes this face. Brilynn says, “She’s so anti-dating. I can’t even say we’re dating. I don’t even know what we’re doing right now.”
Salice says, “F*** it, I’m down,” and Brilynn gets SO excited. “We’re dating?!” Brilynn asks. “Noooo, yes, we’re dating but we’re not together.”
They’ve known each other for three years and just recently started dating.
They would talk a couple of times a year like no time had passed, and just recently, it just happened. Salice tells us that if they were to ever “get together,” we would know about it and they would “film the whole thing.”
“Everything we do we’re going to do on camera now.”
Brilynn keeps trying to go in to kiss Salice and she gets so awkward. This is obviously love, y’all. After Salice left the room, Brilynn turns to us to reveal it all: “Now that she’s gone, I can tell you guys that we’re actually dating. She’s just in denial.”
Salice shouts, “That is not a fact.” Brilynn is like, “I didn’t know that she could hear me. It’s definitely a fact okay.”
Salice might be afraid of committing to the title but has the cojones to declare her likeship of Brilynn to the world.
Fans are coming in with the truth like @judycabrera_ saying, “She’s dope like her personality alittle awkward but you guys will get better.”
@0kayVania speaks for the rest of us when she says, “my heart is filled with warmth. my happiness for you is so huge, you deserve everything. i’m glad you are able to feel comfortable sharing these news and i wish you nothing but the best.”
Felicidades, Salice! We ship this awkward baby love.
