Personal Life

On May 9th, 2019, ProJared's now ex-wife Heidi O'Ferral claimed that Jared and Holly had been in a secret relationship for months.[1] This news came roughly six months after Ross and Holly announced that they would be separating in September 2018. Holly later stated in response to this incident that she would be leaving Twitter for a while, and her account is presently locked. It was later revealed by ProJared in a Twitter statement that she had been in a polyamorous relationship with him that his wife at first consented to, but later ceased to consent to.
