Liza Koshy is known for her hilarious skits and going to stores and causing mischief which is often improvised. Dobrik is also popular on YouTube thanks to tons of funny vlogs. David has several vlogs which feature his relationship with Koshy. Between Liza and David’s YouTube channels combined, the couple totals over 21 million subscribers. With these numbers, Koshy and Dobrik can be considered a major power couple on the platform.
Fans of Liza and David were pretty shocked because they continued to upload videos the entire time. It was only two weeks ago that David bought Liza a puppy. In the video prior to that, David brings Liza a monkey.
In the beginning of the video, Dobrik jokingly said that Liza cheated on him. David said that it was better for him and Liza to be apart and it wasn’t healthy for them to continue to be together.
“All jokes aside, we are broken up… Liza broke up with me 6 months ago.”
Koshy and David said that their relationship had become “distant” because they were so busy. David said that he had similar feelings as Liza but never had “the balls to kind of pull the trigger” on that and say, “Hey, we should take a little bit of a break.”
Koshy said that she and Dobrick felt as if they were living separate lives and that neither of them wanted to come to terms to that fact. Liza and David were both thankful for the support they have received from friends and fans.
David and I are genuinely mind blown by the kind-hearted response from you all. It means the world to be surrounded by such positivity, compassion and support. Thank you all for the love. We love you. ❤️ Also, I ordered mayonnaise. In bulk.

On June 5, Liza posted a photo on Instagram about the couple’s decision to break up and the aftermath. Koshy said that breaking up is tough, but she’s happy to go through the difficult process with her best friend.
Breaking up is rough. But at least I get to go through it with my best friend. David, you're a constant reminder of what I aspire to be. You're the most genuinely kind person, a loyal, giving friend and a borderline-insane genius of a creator. Thank you for giving me and so many others so much joy and inspiration. The laugh and love they experience for minutes, I'm lucky to have for a lifetime. I'd say I'm excited to see all that your brilliance will achieve, but I'll be there front row to watch it all, so I'll tell you then. Thank you for the best relationship, the best friendship and the best ride to the grocery store to make puns. I love you! I'm coming downstairs now!
Alissa Violet said that Dobrik and Koshy handled the situation “so beautifully.”
