The Swedish YouTuber, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, lives with his wife Marzia and their two pugs in Brighton, England. Kjellberg is one of YouTube’s highest-paid and most followed content creators and is famous for his gaming videos. In 2019, their home was broken into, and the robbers stole 90 percent of Marzia’s valuables, including jewellery and luxury goods. However, this was not the first time their privacy was violated — in 2016, Kjellberg posted a YouTube video titled “Don’t come to my house” after random people kept showing up at his door. The couple has also purchased a second house in Japan.
