Puzzling Facts About Austin McBroom’s Ace Family, YouTube Earnings and Rape Scandal

Austin Mcbroom’s desire was to play basketball at a professional level but fate had other plans for him. Irrespective of the fact that he played in college and was fairly impressive, he was overlooked during the 2016 NBA Draft. Austin embraced the internet thereafter and paved another path to stardom. It’s no secret that he enjoys a large number of followers across various social media platforms, especially YouTube where he has millions of subscribers on his channel, The ACE Family.

Austin McBroom is known to be in a long-term relationship with Catherine Paiz, a Canadian-born fitness model who has also thrived as a social media personality. Their relationship dates back to 2015 and the two are also career partners; they are known to collaborate on The ACE Family YouTube channel. They welcomed their first child on May 28, 2016, a daughter named Elle Lively McBroom. Not long after that, Austin and Catherine got engaged. The ACE Family latter announced that they were expecting another addition to their family, a daughter named Alaïa Marie McBroom; she was born on the 17th of October 2018. 

Paiz and McBroom Never Expected Their Relationship To Last

A college basketball player and a model dating might seem like a match made in heaven for most people, but Austin McBroom and Catherine Paiz’s relationship needed a little convincing. Although McBroom admits that he felt a special connection with his wife from the very first time they met, she was reluctant about opening herself fully to him.

Paiz believed that the relationship would turn sour quickly like all her past dating experiences. This cynical attitude almost ruined their relationship, but thankfully they realized they were meant to be together before any damage was done.

They Have Faced a Lot of Heat for Being Bad Role Models

McBroom and Paiz have built their entire reputation around posting family-friendly content, but recently, they received a lot of harsh criticism for some of their antics. Sometime in early 2019, a video of McBroom buying a penis-shaped lollipop for a little girl began making the rounds on social media. People called the YouTube star unflattering names and branded the behavior as disgusting, inappropriate, and predatory. Despite the heavy backlash that the Ace Family received, McBroom and Paiz refused to comment or apologize for the video.

Austin McBroom has Been Accused of Being Racist

The internet erupted in a fit of rage and condemnation when McBroom’s old tweets, in which he made a lot of disparaging and demeaning comments about black women, Asian women, and women in general resurfaced.

Instead of apologizing for the tweets, Austin Mcbroom made a video featuring his mum, who waved off his remarks as nothing but jokes. She claimed that her son couldn’t be racist because he was a mixed-race: Puerto Rican, Mexican, Black, and White. She also insulted the people criticizing him and urged McBroom to stop paying attention to them.

Catherine isn’t Paiz’s First Name

Fans and followers of the Ace Family might know her as Catherine Paiz, but it turns out that Paiz is not her first name. She revealed in an interview that she was embarrassed by her first name, which made her seem like a grandmother, so she adopted her middle name.

Although Paiz hasn’t disclosed what her first name is, other sources have revealed that it is “Dolores”. She was named after her mother’s foster mother. Paiz doesn’t use the name publicly, but she admits that she has come to appreciate it because of the sweet story behind it.

How Much Does the Ace Family Earn From YouTube?

The Ace Family, in a span of just a few years, amassed over 17 million followers on YouTube and more than four billion video views. Their exciting content attracts over 5 million views a day, allowing them to generate tens of thousands of dollars in ad revenue each day.

The family reportedly earns upwards of $6 million annually from YouTube. They also make big bucks from promotions, partnership deals, media appearances, monthly subscriptions, and the sales of merchandise.

Austin McBroom’s Cheating and Rape Allegations

The Ace family is no stranger to controversy. They have had their fair share of bad publicity, but some of the scandals they are embroiled have hit their reputation really hard. McBroom has been accused of having numerous extramarital affairs and forcing the women he hooks up with to sign non-disclosure agreements.

To throw fuel on the fire, another YouTuber named Cole Carrigan claimed that McBroom raped one of his friends at a Miami hotel. Cole shared some pretty damning pictures to corroborate his accusations including screenshots of testimony from the alleged victim and bloodstained sheets from the day of the alleged rape.

Since the rape scandal broke, McBroom and Paiz have been working hard to do damage control and prevent the family’s name from being dragged through the mud. They shared their own set of screenshots from the alleged victim, where she denied that McBroom raped her and claimed Carrigan made up the story so the Ace Family would pay him hush money. They also shared pictures of legal documents, explaining that they would be taking the matter to court on the grounds of extortion and defamation, and slander.
