Audio of a conversation between Danielle Cohn and her mother Jennifer Archambault leaked online this week.
Cohn is a young YouTuber, musician and influencer with 1.7 million subscribers who has been a controversial figure on the platform for a few years due to questions about her age.
This week, Archambault was heard in the clip berating Cohn for his “cold heart” and saying she allowed him to have an abortion.
“I allowed you to have an abortion … I allowed so much that I shouldn’t have allowed it, and it allowed you to be the person you have become,” said Archambault.
In other clips, Archambault said that Cohn would have to go live with his father Dustin for a while, and Cohn repeated something his mother told him: “At least I didn’t kill my own child.”
The conversation was shared on the Instagram page 2aidedanichon2.
Danielle Cohn and Mikey Tua’s relationship was a point of contention for both parents
Cohn fans’ obsession with finding out the truth about his real age only grew over time thanks to Internet detectives and information leaks.
In the past, she has repeatedly insisted that she’s 15 (now 16) so often that it’s become a meme that she’ll be that age forever. But there are fears that she was much younger than she said and would only be 14 when she had an abortion.
Mikey Tua is Cohn’s boyfriend who she started dating in 2018. In April 2019, they released a series of videos where they went to Vegas and apparently got married. The ceremony was not legal, Danielle’s mother told Buzzfeed News, and was simply “click bait”. They broke up for a short time at the end of 2019 after Tua’s parents interfered with a bizarre prank where Cohn faked pregnancy.
“After some sensitive information was brought to my attention about Danielle, we no longer support Mikey and Danielle’s relationship,” Tua’s mother Katie wrote via her Instagram Stories. “Because Mikey is still underage, we took his social media out of him. He can get them back when we have settled legal issues. Thank you ! “
Tua’s father also released a statement saying his son wanted to emancipate himself from his parents.
“I understand that, but his emancipation can give him a prison sentence,” he wrote. “Dani is not yet 15.”
The couple reconciled this year and Tua, 18, now lives with Cohn’s family.
Archambault addressed the relationship in the leaked audio, saying that she and Cohn “can’t get along at all.”
“I think we just need to spend time away from each other,” she said. “Because I allowed you to live with your boyfriend, I allowed you to do all these sides.”
In an email to Insider, Archambault confirmed that the leak made a private conversation between her and Cohn public.
She said her five-year-old best friend, whom she named to Insider, was the one who leaked the audio.
“My 5 year old best friend (…) whom my daughter admired and was very close to is behind this disgusting situation,” she said. “I am disgusted and beyond sorry that an adult who was so close to our family should betray us.”
The insider reached out to the friend for comment.
Archambault said Cohn was thus “coerced and intimidated” into thinking she should tell the world about her abortion. The things she and Cohn said to each other were “blackouts,” she said.
“It was the hardest thing my daughter has ever experienced and she should have been able to keep it private and to herself,” she said. “It was after a long week where our family went through so much and we finally got to talk about it. I love my daughter and I fully support her decisions no matter what.”
Danielle was forced to talk about her private life
Cohn also confirmed that the audio was real in a YouTube video titled “The truth about my abortionposted Monday. She told viewers she had an abortion in January.
“I thought to myself that it was better that I say it frankly because you don’t have to lie,” she said. “Even though it’s really embarrassing to me, and something I don’t want to talk about, it’s gotten to the point where I have to do it. And I have to tell my story.”
Cohn said she wanted anyone who’s been through the same thing to know that they shouldn’t feel embarrassed because “it’s not a bad thing to do.” She also said she was against pro-choice people before she faced the decision herself.
She went through every step of her story in detail, on how she got pregnant in the first place, and also how she was manipulated into having sex. She said she slept all the time and craved strange foods, but was still naive that she was pregnant at first. When she finally passed the test, she said her first thought was to call the dad. It is not known who she was with at the time, as she and Tua broke up during this time.
“Let’s just say I went through it on my own,” she said. “And that was the hardest part, because nobody cared. And I couldn’t tell my family. I didn’t want them to be disappointed in me. Like, nobody cared. cared. “
Danielle and her mother are currently planning a vacation together
Archambault has posted to Instagram twice since the audio leaked. A post is a selfie of her and Cohn smiling.
“We are not perfect”, she wrote in the caption. “No family is, but we will overcome it all.”
She also addressed the audio directly in a second post, where she said it was “unfortunate” for people to make assumptions about their families.
“Whenever the police come to investigate or the CPS and everyone comes to our family, they don’t understand why they’ve even been called to investigate,” she wrote. “It’s sad that everyone continues to waste their time and take resources for the real major problems in the world.”
Cohn hasn’t posted on social media since her video, but judging from her mom’s Instagram stories, she’s on vacation with her family.
Audio rekindles questions about Danielle’s age
Audio raises an issue that has troubled people following Cohn’s story for several years. Fans and commentators have long been unsure of Cohn’s age, especially since his father claimed in a Facebook post last year. that she was only 13 years old.
“I decided to clear things up for my daughter Danielle Cohn,” he wrote. “For years, I was diplomatic while treating my daughter online in a way that I didn’t approve of and trying to manage her outside of social media because I thought the system would work and keep it safe. safety of my daughter. “
However, Cohn and her mother insisted when she was 15, which would make her 16 now. A Famous Birthdays Instagram post From three years ago, Cohn’s 13th birthday celebration seems to confirm this.
Since Cohn’s birthday is in March, she would have been 15 at the time of the abortion. Cohn’s social media pages have been inundated with praise for the maturity with which she has handled this whole situation.
“Dani should be so proud of herself for being so mature about something so emotional and personal,” one fan wrote on YouTube. “She gained so much respect from me.”
