SCREENSHOTS have alleged that a popular YouTube streamer’s wife left him for another man who has threatened to kill himself.
Steven Kenneth Bonnell II, known to the streaming community as Destiny, married his wife, Swedish internet personality Melina Goransson, in 2021.
The divorce rumors began after social media sleuths discovered that Destiny, a popular streamer on Discord, appeared to unfollow or block Melina on multiple platforms.
Destiny, 34, allegedly confirmed the split in a chat on Discord, though neither has publicly spoken out yet.
In screenshots posted to social media, Destiny allegedly called the last few weeks and months a “massive mindf**k.”
Destiny claimed he has watched Melina, 25, “become obsessed with a toxic/abusive guy.”
“When I visited Sweden last, he gave Mel an ultimatum to divorce me and then threatened to kill himself when she didn’t do it, among 20 other abusive/manipulative things he’s done,” Destiny continued.
The couple has spoken candidly about their open relationship.
In an episode of the Lex Fridman Podcast, Melina said: “The only relationships I’ve ever done have been open relationships since I was like, in high school because I didn’t really understand like why wouldn’t you be able to, like, do other things with other people but then just like have your main partner, basically.”
Destiny has also previously said on a podcast that the couple had “long-term friends, some of them we hook up with.”
“It’s a delicate dance that explodes every six months.”
‘OUT OF CONTROL’
Melina has been known to stream on Twitch, broadcasting content around pools, hot tubs, and beaches.
Destiny, meanwhile, was banned from Twitch in 2021 for leaking an employee’s email following a data leak that affected the streaming platform.
He confirmed that the ban became permanent in 2022.
The streamer has come under fire for joking about suicide in his streams and online presence.
On December 7, just as the divorce rumors began, Destiny retweeted a video on X, formerly Twitter, with the caption: “how 2 talk to swedish girls.”
In the video, a man introduces himself to a woman.
He then says to her: “If you don’t give me your number, I’m gonna take my own life.”
The woman then appears to be uncomfortable before the video ends.
Destiny also spoke on a podcast recently about attending a “five-hour therapy session” that he had requested with Melina.
“I had issues that I needed to have resolved like pretty quickly because s**t was getting a little out of control in my personal life,” he said.
He also noted that he asked for one long session due to Melina being “in and out of the country.”
The U.S. Sun has reached out to both Destiny and Melina for comment.
You’re not alone
SUICIDE is the 10th leading cause of death in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Leading Causes of Death Report from 2018.
There were “more than two and half times as many suicides” in the US than there were homicides, according to the report.
For people ages 10 and 34, suicide was the “second leading cause of death” and the fourth for individuals ages 35 to 54.
Suicide is a vital health concern in the U.S. It affects all genders, races and ages.
