The well-known Dutch makeup artist and Internet personality appeared in a video posted on Sunday, Aug. 16, titled “Letting you know I’m okay… Makeup Therapy”—her first since she and her fiancé Dylan Drossaers were robbed at gunpoint at their home in the Netherlands.
“Some of you have followed me for years,” she began her video, “and if you’ve been following me for years, you know that 2020 has been a ride.”
Fighting back tears, she continued, “In these years, I got to do some of the most amazing things, but also shared my darkest days with you…and I can tell you today is one of those dark days.”
“A couple of days ago, Dylan and I were part of one of my worst nightmares,” she said. “We were robbed at gunpoint at our own home and, even though I can’t tell you too much because there’s still a very ongoing investigation, I do want to let you know that I am ok. I may not look like I’m ok right now, but I’m ok.”
The Internet star reflected on the incident and shared with viewers how it has impacted her.
“Having one of those worst nightmares come true is very surreal, but it also puts a lot of things in perspective,” she said. “Now more than ever you realize that family is everything and being in good health is even more important, so maybe one day I’ll be able to tell you everything, but right now it’s impossible for my mental state, but also the law because we’re trying to do everything to make this right.”
“I am so beyond grateful to be able to sit in my studio today and film a brand new video for you guys like nothing ever happened because makeup will always be therapy to me and I want to thank you for providing a platform where I can truly be me and let go of all fears,” she said. “I love you so much and hopefully I will see you guys on the next one.” Said Nikkie while concluding the video.
