NikkieTutorials Was Held At Gunpoint As Her Home Was Robbed Over The Weekend
In a scary revelation, beauty Youtuber NikkiTutorials (whose real name is Nikkie de Jager) shared that she and her fiance Dylan Drossaers had just been robbed in their own home. What’s even scarier is that the robbers were armed and held the pair at gunpoint.

Her post reads,
Earlier today, one of my biggest nightmares became reality when we got robbed under gun point at our own home,” the beauty influencer wrote. “Dylan and myself got attacked but physically we’re okay. Mentally it’s a whole other story.”
She also asks that fans and friends alike give her the space she needs to process and deal with the resulting trauma from the ordeal. Dutch news outlets were quick to cover the incident, initially reporting that it was Nikkie’s home in Uden, initially reported that Nikkie’s home in Uden, a town in the Netherlands that’s about two hours southeast of Amsterdam. Nikkie is said to have purchased the house in 2017 but only moved into the property recently following the completion of its renovations. The Dutch police have said that NikkiTutorials home was invaded by at least three people, one of whom was suspected to have a gun.
Just hours earlier, the 26-year-old Netherlands native was taking the time to answer questions from fans on her Instagram stories. Her fiance, Dylan (who popped the question in August last year during their vacation in Italy), also shared a video of their home’s pool.
