Exclusive: Police Records Reveal New Details of Amouranth’s Volatile Marriage
Public records obtained by The Jacob Wolf Report shed new light on the 36-hour absence of Twitch’s most popular female streamer.
Police in Fort Bend County, Texas, performed three wellness checks on Oct. 16 and 17 after Twitch’s most-watched female creator, Kaitlyn “Amouranth” Siragusa, accused her husband of years-long emotional manipulation in a series of livestreams that weekend, according to public records obtained by The Jacob Wolf Report.
Those visits to Siragusa’s Houston-area home came after a livestream late into the evening of Oct. 15, in which she revealed for the first time that she had been married for seven years and accused her husband, Nick Lee, of manipulating her career and threatening to kill her dogs.
That livestream featured Lee yelling at Siragusa over the phone and sending text messages in which he threatened to purposely blow through excessive amounts of their money—all while hundreds of thousands of viewers from around the world watched live.
The following morning, on Oct. 16 at around 5:30 a.m. local time, Joshua Bailey, a moderator for Siragusa’s Twitch channel, phoned the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office (FBCSO) requesting the first of the checks. Police were dispatched and made contact with Siragusa and Lee around 6 a.m. Siragusa and Lee explained to law enforcement officers that they had been arguing, but said they were not in need of police action, according to the report.
An hour and a half later, a man named Steven Bradfield—who identified himself as Siragusa’s uncle—phoned FBSCO with concern. Later that morning, at 11:17 a.m. local time, police received calls from Alyssa Jordan, the chief of media operations at Siragusa and Lee’s startup, Real Work, and fellow creator Natalia “Alinity” Mogollon.
Police were dispatched a second time on Oct. 16 at the request of Jordan, but they were unable to contact Siragusa or Lee by knocking on the door at the home. Jordan told police that they “might be sleeping.”

The following day, Oct. 17, police received an anonymous call alleging domestic abuse by Lee toward Siragusa. Officers arrived at the home and spoke with Siragusa, who restated that she and Lee had been arguing, but did not report domestic violence. Lee was not present at the time and was contacted by phone by officers for a statement—in which he said he had not assaulted or threatened Siragusa.
“I did not observe any indication of physical assault on Kaitlyn Siragusa’s person,” FBCSO deputy Kristin Savinon wrote in the incident report.
FBCSO did not arrest or detain Lee at any point, and its administrative clerk, Debra Elizondo, told The Jacob Wolf Report that the incidents did not result in a charge referred to prosecutors.
After the emotional stream on the evening of Oct. 15 and morning of Oct. 16, Siragusa went dark for more than 36 hours, prompting concern from her community and peers.
She reappeared on the evening of Oct. 17, dressed down in a baggy sweater while venting to her viewers. She stated she was “free” and that she and Lee had separated temporarily, but potentially permanently, as he sought mental health care and she looked for “emotional and legal guidance.”
“I don’t have to wear cleavage every day. I can wear clothes,” she said on Oct. 17.
She returned to her normal livestreaming schedule on Oct. 18 for an IRL (in-real-life) stream as she explored the Houston area with a friend and groomed and cared for her horses. She has continued to stream on a regular basis but has reduced the number of hot tub streams and instead has played more games—something she said she wanted to do in the wake of her mid-October revelations.

Siragusa became Twitch’s most-watched female creator several years ago and has held that spot for most of the time since.
Originally a gaming-specific creator, Siragusa became best known for streaming in bikinis and lingerie and performing ASMR. Widely considered the “hardest-working woman on Twitch” by her peers, she has continued to push the envelope—leading the charge to force Twitch to add a “beaches, pools and hot tubs” category and adjust its rules as they pertain to lewd content. She has received several temporary bans from the platform, beginning with a wardrobe malfunction in September 2019, and another in June 2021 for suggestive ASMR content.
But with her Twitch success, she created and popularized a funnel for women producing sexually suggestive content to move their audiences from the Amazon-owned livestreaming platform to sites such as OnlyFans, Fansly and Patreons.
On OnlyFans and Fansly, Amouranth charges subscriptions and other paid access to view both lewd and nude content. Originally just suggestive, her content has become more sexually explicit over time, and she now posts sex tapes to those platforms, according to public post descriptions. She eventually became OnlyFans’ highest-earning creator, and in July 2022, she revealed that she made more than $1.5 million per month on average on the platform.
Her fame—and the stalkers that have come with it—made her the main subject of a July 2022 New York Times feature about how women and racial minority creators deal with harassment on Twitch and in the livestreaming community. In December 2021, VICE released a 30-minute documentary on her success.
