YouTube stars Alissa Violet and FaZe Banks have lost their connection. 

The couple confirmed their split up on social media. 

"Alissa and I decided about a month ago that we should take some time apart," Banks began in a pair of tweets addressing the issue.   

"Love that girl to death and always will. I’ll never say a bad word about her. This s**** about as hard to deal with as it gets. Please respect our privacy through this," he wrote, followed by a broken heart emoji.

"To clarify too, this wasn’t one sided by any means. Just like everything else we’ve ever done, it was a team decision. Alissa is the most amazing soul I’ve ever come in contact with. She deserves love and support. She’ll continue to have mine forever," the 27-year-old wrote.

Alissa tweeted simply, "single violet thrives."

Fans on social media seem devastated at the news. 

"banks and Alissa broke up I think I'm taking this harder than they are bc I really thought they were gonna marry each other," one person said. 

"well I guess we all support your decision no matter what you decide, you'll always have our support," wrote another. 

Fans have also expressed their concern over whether the couple's split will mean the end of the "Clout Gang," the YouTube crew that also includes RiceGum, SommerRay and Carrington.
