Molly-Mae’s YouTube videos won’t be the same after ‘devastating’ burglary

Love Island star Molly-Mae is likely to change the way she uses social media after her flat was burgled last week.

You’ve probably heard by now that Love Island stars Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague were victims of a burglary last week. Their deluxe Cheshire apartment was targeted on Thursday night while they were at Molly-Mae’s Beauty Works launch event in London.

Molly-Mae making changes

According to reports, Tommy and Molly-Mae have since moved their remaining belongings out of the Cheshire flat and have vowed never to return. But don’t be expecting to get a YouTube house tour of their new place. After being left ‘shaken’ by the burglary, Molly-Mae is said to be reconsidering how much of her life she shares online.

A source who spoke to OK! Magazine said:

Molly has been left really shaken up. It was a huge robbery and it was a targeted attack. She’s now realised that she has to be more careful on social media and what she posts. She has a lot of followers and a lot of people watching her. She’s going to be so careful going forward and she’s totally learnt her lesson.

Taking a lead from Kim K

It’s not clear exactly what changes Molly-Mae will be making. As a social media influencer, showing off is a key part of her job and fans are keen to know about every aspect of her life. She may well take a lead from Kim Kardashian—who stopped posting Instagram stories ‘in real time’ after being robbed at gunpoint in Paris.

In 2019, three years after the 2016 robbery, Kim said:

I learned from a bad experience I had when I was robbed that people really knew my every move. They knew what I had, they knew where I was, what I was doing, and that to me really changed the things that I post...
I still want people to feel like they're on that journey with me, but I might video something, then post it 30 minutes later when I've left the location, more for privacy.

We wouldn't be surprised to see Molly-Mae taking similar steps.
