Growing up in a troubled home with parents who are addicts can make or mar an individual. Leafyishere didn’t allow the unfortunate condition he had to live with as a child affect him negatively, instead, he found solace in YouTube where he lets out his emotions through his videos of games and commentaries.
His innovative content has since drawn a lot of people to his channel. The YouTube star, video gamer, and occasional Twitch streamer boasts more than four million subscribers on the video sharing platform. Get to know more about the internet star below.
Leafyishere’s Bio (Age)
The YouTube prodigy was born on August 18, 1995, in Layton Utah to Marvin Vail (father) and Regina Lee (mother) who named him Calvin Vail. Also part of his family are two siblings but their identities are not disclosed.
Growing up wasn’t rosy for Leafyishere as his parents battled with substance abuse with his father attempting suicide at some point. Against all odds, he created an alternate personality online to escape his real-life woes. Ranging from posting gameplay videos to sharing his opinions about life and society values, as well as politics, his content is regarded as unusual and fans love him for it.
His videos and commentaries exude an aura of inventiveness and originality that singles him out from the rest. The videos are popular for being new and packed with fascinating facts, touching different areas of life. Leafyishere also knows how to relate to his personal issues and concerns, thereby appealing to the youth culture as well as the versatile cyberculture of which he belongs to. Little wonder his subscribers are increasing by the day and fast approaching five million.
Leafy’s fans are also fascinated by his initial claims of being a reptilian. The whole drama started as a joke where he calls his fans reptilians while they pretend as though he is actually a reptile, but the joke kind of refused to go away. Even after releasing a video to show he is not a reptile, fans did apply the brakes on the joke but it still lingers with an online petition to help him embrace his supposed reptilian heritage.
His Net Worth
It has become a known fact that the internet is the new gold and internet personalities are tapping from the mine with each second that passes. A successful career as a YouTuber depends on the number of subscribers and views a channel boasts of. This means that Leafyishere has all he needs to make a lot of money on the platform as he has close to five million fans.
The YouTube personality has an estimated net worth of $800 thousand, an accumulation of his earnings on YouTube and as a comedian. His earnings are boosted by his millions of fans who flood his channel for more of his videos despite the controversies trailing him. He conveniently turned his misfortune right from childhood to fortune and there’s every indication his wealth is bound to increase in the future.
Who Is His Girlfriend?
After a thorough digging into his personal life, it’s apparent that all of Leafyishere’s passion has been completely reserved for his social media activities, it is safe to assume he has no time to commit to a relationship. In 2016, there was a widespread rumor that he refused to date a certain girl that liked him in order not to lose his female fans.
Is He Dead, What Happened To Him?
Leafyishere has been caught in the crossfire of online controversies a lot. He was once called out for bullying a fellow YouTuber (TommyNC2010) with autism among several other issues. Thus, he is always under fire and has been severely criticised by internet users. This was probably why he literally disappeared from the internet but when fans didn’t see him online for a while, speculations about his possible death went rife.
While many have come to believe he’s no more, there is no confirmation that the YouTuber is dead. Meanwhile, hardly can anyone tell what he is up to these days since he has kept a low profile. Besides, he is not one to flaunt his personal life on social networks, so for now, we will have to believe he is not dead. Perhaps he is busy touring the beautiful cities of Europe and America as he has always loved to.
