Greg also threatened suicide over his alimony payments in April 2012.
In late 2010, Greg divorced his first wife, Skye. After having a brief friendship with her, he announced they were no longer friends.
Alimony Complaints Begin
On January 2nd, Greg began bashing alimony on social media with statuses such as, "Alimony: For the greedy/shameless ex's who never really loved you." (Source)
On January 19th, he began to specifically talk about his alimony agreement with Skye. He made several tweets (Source) and upload "Her Easy Life" to OnisionSpeaks. In the video Greg starts off by saying he intends to "share pretty much everything in my life with you", but he has been holding back something important. He says he doesn't know why he hasn't talked about it and that he should have told his viewers about it a long time ago. He says after they separated, Skye perused him for $150,000 saying she worked with him full time on the "family business" (hand quotes). He says when they were talking again later on, she revealed to him she did something "tricky" to get more money. Greg says that Skye told him she included her graphic design website as part of the family business to make it seem like she worked with him. He says her websites had nothing to do with him and she only updated it once every 2 or 3 months. He estimates she made one dollar off her site. He says she did edit OnisionArchive videos for him for a while, but he would pay her for it monthly. He says he paid her about what she is now making off of his alimony. He says he will be paying her alimony for the next 5.5 to 6 years, "Which sucks cuz survival isn't the easiest thing in the world sometimes". He says she ended up with $90,000. Greg says if you ask someone to sign a pre-nup and you fall for them crying and telling you you never loved them, "you're a sucker like me". ($ource)
Later that day, Skye replied to Greg in a long Facebook status. Skye says the past year and a half have been the most difficult times she had experienced in her life. She says she got help, talked to family, got legal advice, and found a great counselor to help her through everything. She now found her true dream and won't let anyone put her down ever again. She says "I refuse to play this continual mind game of an abusive cycle." She says she will keep quiet on her side of the story because she does not want to be part of the drama. She says she was able to rise above months of harassment and still receives "the odd jab here and there." (Source)
Skye began to receive regular harassment and threats from angry Onision fans. More extreme threats included death threats and rape threats. (Source)
On January 23rd, Skye wrote a second long Facebook status. "I shouldn’t have to get on here to defend myself. This is sick and this is wrong." She says everything that needed to be said was said through the court systems under oath. She says the court system, lawyers, her counselor, and the judge know what really happened. Everything Greg is saying was already presented to them and they made their decision. She says she had situational depression and PTSD due to the mental abuse she suffered and had to go through a year of heavy counseling. She says this is all in the court documents and they she takes the opinion of a professional counselor over people that know nothing about her life. She says she had evolved and grown since that dark time in her life.
She says the adult thing to do when you are in a situation like a sudden divorce is to seek legal and mental health, not broadcast it all over the internet. She says she is moving on and remaining professional. She says she is going to school, seeking a more stable job, and trying to follow her dream of becoming a film maker. She thanks everyone that remained neutral and says this will be the last time she will be talking about this. (Source)
On January 28, 2012, Greg made his only attempt to stop the hateful comments from his angry fans. He made a Facebook status asking his fans not to send rape threats to his ex. (Source)
Alimony and Suicide$ource)
On April 28, 2012, Greg uploaded ALIMONY vs SLAVERY to his Speaks channel. In the video Greg explains that alimony is similar slavery because someone is working for nothing in return. He asks who does the person that worked hard during the relationship have to pay the person that was sitting on their ass the whole relationship. He says "One of the lack of similarities is the fact that when you were a slave you got free food, free shelter, free water, some cases free medical... what does a guy paying alimony get?" "Jack shit." He says the people that pay alimony and support their exes are heroes and the recipients are too lazy to get a job. ($ource) This video received a lot of criticism and reply videos from people explaining why they believe Greg should not relate alimony to something like slavery.
The Facebook statuses and Speaks videos sent some fans over the edge and they began to increase the threats and hate on Skye's accounts. The attacks were noticeably more extreme and frequent than ever before. (Source) The fans' attacks along with Greg's statuses and videos directed toward her are rumored to be the reason behind her abrupt disappearance from her YouTube and her FellFromTheSkye social media accounts.
Greg continued to publicly complain about his alimony on blogs and videos for years. He had not mentioned being suicidal over it since April 2012.
TodayUhOhBro channel. Greg noticeably began living a more expensive lifestyle beginning in 2015 and the alimony payments may have no longer a burden financially for him. It is also speculated if somehow the alimony was stopped early.
Greg's last alimony payment to Skye is set for 2017.
In the 2016 video "Re: List of Onision Abuse Accusations", Greg admits he used threatening to kill himself as a manipulation tactic against Skye: “That is true. I did publicly threaten to kill myself. I have no defense for that because publicly threatening to kill yourself is really stupid. Especially since that was a manipulative tactic and I had no actual intention of killing myself.” He says he was angry at Skye for lying in court to get more money from him.
