On 24th July 2019 transgender beauty guru, Nikita Dragun posted a 35-minute long video giving her side of the relationship she had with Michael Yerger, and how things went down.
According to her, their relationship started off transactional since he was a model who could work for her shoots, campaigns and act as her “fake boyfriend” for YouTube. During the course of time, she started to fall for him and she claims that the feelings were mutual. They have made several videos together in the past.
Michael Yerger Breaking the Silence
Michael Yerger uploaded an entire paragraph on Insta story giving his side of the story. Michael explains how he was approached by Nikita at a bar to be in her YouTube videos. Nikita would book jobs through his modeling agency and ask him to take pictures with her. Furthermore, he claimed that he never asked Nikita to give him “exposure and recognition”.
He also debunks the “really really big fight” which Nikita stated in her video, labeling it as “the most relaxed conversation”. She would continuously book him and kept him in her life by providing him bigger projects with good pay. Moreover, for him, the “fake boyfriend” tag and a couple of hashtags from her was changing his life. However, he started to feel uncomfortable when her YouTube videos required him to be more physical like touching, kissing, and dancing. The worst incident for him was the “boyfriend q&a” YouTube video in which the fans asked them questions which were mostly sexual and false. Because of the cameras surrounding him, he felt pressured to answer the questions as if they were actually a couple.
Furthermore, he made it clear to Nikita that he liked her as a person and has great respect for her. However, according to Nikita, he said he liked her and that he was interested in her. Their relationship became more public and he had to attend many events and parties with her.
Her team would always leave them alone, and he would make excuses that he had work the next day. The “constant strategic social gameplay” made him feel trapped.
The Coachella Story
Nikita’s story about how she gave Michael, his friend, and his friend’s girlfriend VIP Coachella passes was true. However, the romantic scenario which was created was all to satisfy her “fantasy”. His time with Nikita was simply transactional and not romantic. He was obligated to spent time with her since she was the one who got him and his friends the tickets. She wanted the “boyfriend Coachella fantasy” so badly that he took boyfriend material pictures with her, gave her piggybacks, and tried his level best to make sure she had fun (since it was her first time at the festival).
The Girl Who Sole Her “Man”
He addressed the girl which Nikita claims to be the cause of the breakup. Claiming that she’s someone he knew for a long time and was close to.
Was He Ashamed of Her?
His reason for not posting pictures of Nikita and him was that he did not want to post about something which was not real, and it was certainly not because he was ashamed or embarrassed by her.
