Ken Walker is being accused of cheating on his fiancée De’arra Taylor after a video showing a man The Shade Room said was the YouTube star getting cozy with another woman in a parking lot. After The Shade Room shared the video on Twitter, users online debated whether or not it was actually Walker.
Walker and Taylor are famous for their shared YouTube channel, De’arra & Ken 4 Life, also known as DK4L, which shows the duo pulling pranks and playing fun games such as “Truth or Drink.” They started their channel in 2014 and have since amassed over 6 million subscribers.
After 5 years of dating, Walker, 26, proposed to Taylor, 24, while on a Grecian vacation in August 2019, and to the viewers of their YouTube channel, they appeared to be the apex of relationship goals. That is until this video surfaced on November 12.
Some users online were convinced this was just another one of their pranks, while others doubted it was actually Walker in the video. However, others pointed out on Twitter that Walker’s white Tesla could be seen in the video, which they saw as a big tell that it must’ve been him.
One Twitter user was so upset she tweeted, “hey saying Ken cheated on dearra? Ion believe in love nomore.” Most of the tweets shared after the video was released expressed devastation that this couple may not last.
One Twitter user was not surprised by this news at all. He tweeted, “Jay-Z cheated on Beyoncé, y’all thought Dearra was safe? lol.”
Walker’s Twin Confirmed on Instagram That It Was His Brother in the Video
After the video went viral, Walker’s fans remembered that he has a twin brother and hoped it was actually his fraternal twin Kris Walker in the video. Users online flooded his Instagram page, @gaia_blue, asking if it was Ken Walker in the video.
Some users online remained skeptical that @kaia_blue was Walker’s brother. However, @kaia_blue confirmed in the comments section that he is Ken Walker’s twin, and yes, it was his brother in the video. To those asking why he’s putting his brother on blast, Kris Walker said, “It’s not my problem.”
When asked if he knew if Ken Walker was cheating on his finacée, Kris Walker said no.
Walker & Taylor Have Not Publicly Commented on the Video or Spoken Out on the Cheating Allegations
While Taylor’s Instagram page was also flooded with questions and links to The Shade Room’s video, she has not commented on the allegations. The YouTube star, who has 4.7 million followers on Instagram, still has “fiancee” and an engagement ring in her bio.
Walker, who has 2.3 million followers on Instagram, has not commented on the allegations either. His Instagram page remains filled with photos of the couple.
In a 2017 interview with Intelligencer, Walker and Taylor opened up about what it was like to have such a public relationship, but they made a pact to keep their issues private.
“We met when I was 18,” Taylor said. “And then we started getting so many followers, and on top of followers, we started getting so much money. We’re not married, we’re young, so it was like — that can usually mess up somebody.”
At first, the couple would tweet at each other during an argument, but it grabbed a lot of negative attention. “We were like, ‘Let’s work on each other, let’s keep it all internal,'” Walker said. Taylor added, “I don’t think putting your personal issues on the Internet is ever a good look.”
“We’re not just out here talking about ‘Let’s protect our brand,’” Walker said. “We’re also talking about trying to protect our relationship. We love each other, we don’t want anything to happen to each other. The brand, that comes second.”
