Scandals & Controversies
In early to mid-2018, Damian’s relationship with YouTube star and beauty vlogger Ariadna Juarez drew a massive amount of criticism towards the latter as Damian was a juvenile. Back in May, Ariadna disclosed her plans to marry Damian in just two years’ time – which would have made him a 15-year-old groom. She decided to address the criticism and posted a YouTube video, in which she appears alongside Damian’s mother and attempts to justify herself and the relationship.
In order to convince her viewers that she did not do anything wrong, she states that “maturity is not determined by age”. The video itself drew a fresh wave of criticism, not just towards her but Damian’s mother as well for willingly allowing an adult woman to date her underage son. The age of consent in Texas is 17, and Damian was 13 years old at the time. According to Ariadna, both families had gotten together with a lawyer about the legality of the situation. This lawyer apparently told them that they could date as long as there was no “sexual contact”.
In his show, Philip DeFranco discussed the issue, dubbing it “disgusting”. Other YouTubers like Mista GG and Regan Wolf also heavily criticized it. When mainstream news outlets, like ‘The Sun,’ found out about it, they published articles condemning both Ariadna and Damian’s mother.
‘The Sun’ reported that Damian and Ariadna had parted ways by August because “the negativity got out of hand”. However, this is not accurate. They had been dating as late as January 2019.
