Emma Chamberlain opens up about her ex-boyfriend

During a recent episode of Call Her Daddy, Emma opened about a past relationship and her sexuality.

She admitted, "I struggled with my sexual identity growing up because I was a late bloomer and I wasn't an ultra feminine girl. I've never been super stereotypical feminine woman. But yet, I am a straight woman. But I've always gotten shit for that growing up, people being like 'that's not true'.

"Sexuality is such a tough, intimate and emotion filled subject that I don't want to complain about people questioning my sexuality because I know it can be so much worse and complex...

"But at the time I remember one of my ex-boyfriend's friends was like 'dude, she doesn't actually like you. I think she likes girls'.

"And then he came to me and told me that and I was like 'why the f--k would you say that? Why are you assuming? Because that's not true'.

Emma then went on to say, "I'm not making anything definite, it's where I'm at I take it day by day.

"By stepping back from YouTube I have a lot more free time, so that I can figure out maybe I want to do something else that's creative, that I can create for the world to hopefully enjoy.

"It gives me room to explore what I can do next in my career but also it gives me more time to develop friendships properly..."

The 20 year old added, "So I'm taking this time feel like there might be something out there that might excite me career wise and might light my soul on fire.
