Dutch make-up artist and beauty blogger Nikkie de Jager, better known as Nikkie Tutorials, has gone public with the news she is transgender and underwent realignment therapy in her teens.
De Jager revealed her secret in her latest video, saying that ‘it is 2020 and I want to start the year with the truth.’
In the 17-minute video entitled ‘I’m Coming Out’, De Jager hints heavily that she is making the public admission because she is being blackmailed.
‘Today I am here to share something with you that I’ve always wanted to share with you one day, but under my own circumstances, and it looks like that chance has been taken away from me,’ she said. ‘So today, am taking my own power and I have to tell you something.’
De Jager, 25, has 12.7 million followers on You Tube and the video has already been watched over 14 millions times. She began uploading make-up videos in her early teens but hit the big time in 2015 when her YouTube video The Power of Makeup went viral.
