News has come out from the Netherlands which we neither wanted nor expected to hear. On 8 August, Europe Shine A Light and Eurovision 2021 web host NikkieTutorials was robbed at gunpoint at her home in the Netherlands, which she shares with her fiancé Dylan Droassaers.

Nikki took to social media to inform her global fanbase of the attack in a statement, where she confirms that whilst she and her partner were physically unharmed, they are still mentally shaken up.
Nikkie also revealed that she would be taking some time away from social media in order to process the recent events.
Statement from NikkiTutorials
earlier today one of my biggest nightmares became reality when we got robbed under gun point at our own home. Dylan and myself got attacked but physically we’re okay. mentally it’s a whole other story. I’m writing this message for now to let you know that we are “okay” and safe. Thank you for understanding as I take the next couple of days to myself. 💞
Local police in East Brabant confirmed the robbery on Twitter. The statement recounted that “the perpetrators threatened the residents with possibly a firearm and took an unknown loot from them. There are at least three perpetrators who fled in a beige passenger car towards the A50.”
The authorities confirmed that an investigation into the robbery is ongoing.

NikkiTutorials and Eurovision
NikkieTutorials is best known as a beauty YouTuber with a channel boasting over 13.5 million subscribers. The Dutch make-up Queen also kept us entertained throughout lockdown thanks to her Eurovisioncalls with the Eurovision 2020 acts.
We expect to be seeing a lot more of Nikkie within the Eurovision bubble as Rotterdam 2021 draws ever closer. However, for now, all that’s important is that we show our support for Nikkie and Dylan throughout this difficult time.
We’re sending all our love and best wishes to Nikkie and Dylan.
