Zoe Sugg spoke to BuzzFeed News about success, taking a break to escape trolls, and the pressures of being a role model to millions.
Exclusive: The woman, who filed a report with the Los Angeles Police Department on Thursday, told BuzzFeed News Sam Pepper assaulted her last month in Los Angeles.
BuzzFeed News exclusive: A 20-year-old woman says Pepper forced himself on her in April 2013, while he was performing in Toronto. The woman never filed formal charges because "I thought it was my fault," she said. Pepper did not respond to requests for comment.
A former fan of Pepper's told BuzzFeed News that when she was 15, the YouTube personality pressured her to send him nude photographs. Three other women said they were inappropriately touched or harassed by him.
UPDATED: Pepper claims he wanted to do something that could "highlight the difference between abuse towards a man and abuse towards a woman."
