Out of all the YouTube videos by Night Owl Cinematics (NOC), today (Sunday, 31st May)’s release is easily the most emotional video by Ryan Tan and Sylvia Chan.

For months, fans have been speculating about Ryan and Sylvia’s marriage from the subtle hints they unintentionally dropped. If you’ve been following them religiously, you may have picked up on these hints:

1. Ryan’s Instagram post in February

The cryptic quote 3 months ago suggested that something had ended. Many followers were stunned by the emotional caption and asked if they had already divorced.

2. Ryan confessing on Jian Hao’s podcast that he was suicidal back in December

On 31st March, Jian Hao released an almost 2-hour podcast video with Ryan Tan. Things got dark when the NOC co-founder confessed that he was in depression late last year and wanted to end his life. In an emotional confession, Aiken Chia told Ryan that he would quit the YouTube scene if Ryan committed suicide.

3. The Thirsty Sisters

Since “The Thirsty Sisters” debuted last month, Sylvia has also stated that she’s been living alone. When she was recently admitted to hospital, many were also curious on why her first person to contact was Nina instead of Ryan.

This brings us to the moment we weren’t ready for…

4. The reveal

In their heartbreaking 44-minute video, Ryan and Sylvia confessed that they had actually divorced in March. The former flames clarified that there’s no bad blood between them and the break up wasn’t caused any one huge triggering point. Ultimately, their marriage took a backseat in favour of their business.


5. The NOC family’s responses

Dear Dabao, Thank you for one decade. I dare say I truly lived this ten years with no regrets. It’s been crazy isn’t it. We got married at 22, with a $800 set of discounted wedding rings cos that’s all we had. The future was bleak and we were so scared weren’t we? “It’s me and you against the world.” And against all odds, we did put up a good fight. And I think we did good. We did build something amazing together. We built the NOC family. We are surrounded by amazing people who love us and support us. And this will always be ours. You know this already, that I love you always. Behind the glamour and lights, beyond the public eye, there’s just so much we have been through together. All the laughter, the tears, the memories; no one can take these away from us. So, at the end of our marriage, I just want to thank you. Thank you for everything. I have never regretted my decision to be with you and looking back, I thank god it was you. If I could do it all over again, I would still choose you. It was the most exciting decade of my life walking side by side with you as your wife. Even our divorce, because it’s you, we took it in stride. Now, as family, what could possibly stop us? ❤️

After avoiding it for the whole day, I finally brought myself to watch the divorce video. These two are my friends, my YouTube mom and dad, my family. When we first started YouTube and walked into this fire, we never knew what it’d take away from us. And clearly, it has taken a lot. I’ve never spoken to Ryan and Sylvia about it because I just don’t know how to. Ryan and Sylvia, I know this is for the better but it makes me sad things will never be the same again. We will never hang out for suppers stoning talking about random deep stuff, going on trips together, or me just being in the middle of your awkward arguments, or looking into a future where we can all live in the same neighborhood and giving me the key to your house so I can steal your equipment. Memories as such mean the world to me especially during times when we had nothing but friendship. As a couple, things may not have worked out but you are amazing individuals to me and I hope no one takes that away from you because of this. Regardless of all of this, nothing matters but YOUR HAPPINESS and I respect your decision. I hope all the fans will respect it too. Without you guidance and love, I would never be where I am today. I love you both so so much @ryanxgo @sylsylnoc 💖 To new beginnings.
