Elizabeth “Liza” Koshy started to walk into the limelight in 2013 when she began to post comedic videos on Vine on an account named “Lizzza” and her popularity has only skyrocketed from there. By the time Vine shut down four years later, Koshy had acquired over 5 million followers and continued to entertain fans through her YouTube channel, becoming the fastest YouTube personality to reach 10 million subscribers.
Koshy’s success is not limited to her internet presence; she made her television debut in 2016 in the Hulu original horror series Freakish and also played the role of Aday Walker in the film Boo! A Madea Halloween. Koshy has also hosted several awards shows, including the live preshow at the 2017 Golden Globes Awards, and is a producer and developer of content for MTV.
Fans have been wondering about Koshy’s romantic life recently, as there seems to be some news about a shift in her relationship status. Never fear – here’s a comprehensive history of her notable relationships and an update on her current love life.
David Dobrik 2015-2018
Koshy began to date David Dobrik, another online personality, in November 2015 after four months of platonic (or maybe “platonic”) friendship. They kept their relationship private for several months, but the fans suspected something was up long before their relationship was confirmed on social media.
After the six month mark, Koshy and Dobrik were extremely public with their relationship, posting cute pictures that made all of their single fans think, “I want that!” and all of their coupled-off fans wonder, “Do I have that?” The couple not only put up a ton of photos but also collaborated on videos together in order to promote each others’ online comedy careers, specifically through their challenge videos.
In 2017, both Koshy and Dobrik were present at the Streamy Awards and won their respective categories; Koshy earned a Streamy in the Comedy category, while her boyfriend got one for Breakout Creator. Dobrik even went as far as to attribute his success to his time with Koshy and dedicated the Streamy to her. Awww!
Fans thought that this internet power couple had the perfect relationship, but in a shocking turn of events, Koshy has broken up with Dobrik. Although the YouTubers posted a video on June 5 confirming their split, they have actually been broken up for six months. Six whole months! Koshy explained that she felt that the two of them were growing apart since they were so busy with their lives and Dobrik agreed.
For now, Liza Koshy remains single, but she and David Dobrik seem to be on amicable terms considering that they met up to make their fan video. Hopefully, she will enjoy her single life for a while and then the two of them can find partners that are better fitted for each other. (Or, you know, get back together… That’s what the fans really want!)
