YouTube star Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson has revealed he had everything in his house robbed early in his career – and was reportedly even followed the night before the theft.
With almost 10 million subscribers on YouTube, it’s obvious that MrBeast is one of the most famous people on the internet.
He’s known for high-quality (and big-budget) viral videos like his recreation of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory and Netflix’s hit Korean thriller series Squid Game.
During a recent episode of The Yard Podcast, the YouTuber revealed that everything he owned was stolen almost half a decade ago – well before his current success on YouTube.

That’s not all; MrBeast even claims he was followed the night before after someone allegedly threw a “red light” on his front door and convinced the social media star he was in very real mortal danger because someone was spying on him.
“I don’t think I’ve ever told that story publicly,” he began. “I got home at 3am super late after a video. I walk into my crappy little house and all I see is a red dot on my door. I turned around and didn’t see anyone, so I went in and opened and closed my blinds for the next five hours [to see if anyone was there].
“The next day I left my house and when I left everything was stolen. I have the feeling that someone is following me.”

Jimmy went on to explain that this happened when he had about a million subscribers on YouTube (about 4.5 years ago), but the person who robbed him allegedly had no idea who he was.
With almost 10 million subscribers and the title of one of the most popular people on the internet, he made it clear that nowadays he has cameras and proper security so nothing like this will happen in the future.
Though in 2020 he had to say no to a gifted Tesla for fear “stalkers” would follow him.
