Amberlynn Wiki Biography
Amberlynn Lynn Reid was born in Key West, Florida USA, on 27 December 1990, so under the zodiac sign of Capricorn and holding American nationality – she is popular for her YouTube channel on which she mostly uploads videos related to her life.
Early life and education
Amberlynn only spent a couple of months in Key West, as her parents moved to California when she was still a baby. During one of her videos, Amberlynn stated that both of her parents were drug addicts and never treated each other well, constantly yelling and fighting, but otherwise her childhood was not that hard. Amberlynn has two younger brothers, and when she was eight the three of them were placed into foster care – her youngest brother was adopted into a different home and she never got to see him again.
As she and her other brother spent over a year in a foster home without anyone adopting them, Amberlynn was moved to a children’s shelter when she turned 10, and then moved into and out of several foster homes. Their parents decided to get clean and get their children back, so Amber and her brother started living with them once again, but after two years things degenerated again, and Amber started drinking, smoking weed, and found herself in some bad company. As Amber stated, this was the worst period of her life, as her father started selling drugs, and her brother became abusive with her.
After the separation of her parents
When Amber was around 15, her parents split and her mom started living with her boyfriend. Amber wasn’t feeling mentally well, and considered killing herself, but eventually confided in a friend about this, and he spoke to the teachers, leading to Amber staying for six days in a mental hospital. During that short stay she was diagnosed with depression, but doctors couldn’t give her anti-depressants because she had already been taking them for three years.
After discharge from the hospital, Amber was put back into foster care – she spent months there and was only allowed to see her mother and brother once a week. At 17, one of her friends allowed her to live with her and her family, but she was still depressed and things got even worse, as she got into a fight with her friend, and the friend and her brother started torturing her. This worsened her state, and she turned to food, quickly becoming as heavy as 420lbs (109kgs).
At the age of 18, she went back to living with her mom who was still on drugs, then went into a mental hospital again, and was this time diagnosed with panic disorder, and so couldn’t stay with her mother anymore. Luckily for her, she was in a long-distance relationship with a girl named Kacey, and decided to pay her a visit in Arizona, eventually living with her. However, Kacey’s mom and her boyfriend hated Amber, and abused her in several ways – after Kacey, Amber moved in with Krystal, then Destiny, and then others.
Amberlynn somehow matriculated from high school, and enrolled at Brown Mackie College in Tucson, Arizona, but didn’t manage to graduate.
Career of a YouTuber
Amber’s career was launched on 17 September 2011 when she opened her YouTube channel with a description that reads ‘We will see where this takes me… Subscribe to see’ – the channel is currently followed by nearly 130,000 people and counts nearly 60 million views on all her videos combined.
Amber has stated in one of her videos that she considers YouTube to be her job, and that she sees herself as an entertainer with the main goal of making her fans happy. However, Amber’s channel is currently followed mostly by ‘haters’, who criticize everything she does and the videos she makes – they claim that Amber is a big liar, and will lie to you even about what she ate for breakfast. It is also known that Amber made a fake Facebook profile just to join a group, and see what people write about her there – after she stood up for herself numerous times during discussions in the group, people became suspicious and eventually found out that the fake profile was actually Amber’s; subsequently she was banned from the group.
Personal life and relationships
Amber dated several girls throughout the years, mostly quite lengthy relationships. Some of the girls she dated include:
- Kasey Cordiva, also known as Cassie or Cassidy, from 2008 to 2011. They met on the internet, and Kasey came to see Amber in California and stayed with her for a week – after that, Amber went to live with Kasey and her mother in Tucson and got stuck there. After three years in 2011, Amber fell in love with someone else and split from Kasey;
- Amber fell for Krystle Siviak, and lived with her and her parents from 2011 to 2015, however, they both eventually felt unloved and called it quits. They are still said to be good friends and sometimes visit each other;
- From 2015 to 2017, Amber dated Destiny Cook – they moved in together before even seeing each other before that. At first, they were living with Destiny’s mom but then found their own flat in Kentucky – it was Destiny who broke up with Amber;
- Since 26 May 2017, Amber has been dating Becky Williams – Becky noticed Amber being bullied online and wanted to check up on her. The two started dating, and soon Amber moved in to live with Becky and Eric and Ricky, her roommates, and the two have been together ever since.
It seems that even though she has numerous mental issues and problems with her weight, Amber doesn’t have a hard time finding partners.
Amber’s love towards animals
Amber is a huge fan of animals, especially cats, and has had numerous pet cats throughout the years. Gracie was the cat she had with Destiny, but she went missing in summer of 2015 when she was accidentally let out of the house. Amber then bought Wasabi, who is currently living with her and her girlfriend Becky. Scarlet was bought for Wasabi to have company, however, the two cats did not seem to be getting along very well and Scarlet was therefore gifted to Amber’s friend. Rarity is a cat Amber found when she was a kitten, and she is currently living with her and Becky – besides all these cats, Amber and Becky also have a dog called Twinkie Starr who is currently living with them.

Amber is currently 28 years old. She has long brown hair and brown eyes, but her height and current weight are unknown – however, she is still extremely overweight, and has to use a cart to move around when she goes to stores such as Walmart.
According to authoritative sources, Amber’s current net worth is estimated to be less than $100,000 – YouTube is her only source of income.
