Tragic Details About Adin Ross

There's been a new streamer on the rise for the past year or so, making waves and stirring up controversy wherever he goes. His name is Adin Ross.

Adin Ross is worth more than you might expect, since his rise to internet fame was swift, and he's had interactions with a lot of celebrities that have helped get him where he is. For example, the streamer has brought the likes of Lil Yachty, Lil Tecca, and Bronny (Lebron James' son) onto his stream in the past. He's also close with popular streamer and musician RiceGum.


His streams are often positive, and he's actually one of the first Twitch streamers to donate a percentage of his monthly earnings to charity. Considering he has over 4.5 million Twitch subscribers, Ross is bringing in a good chunk of change to do good with. He's certainly become more of a controversial figure since making a permanent move to Kick as his streaming home, but what fans may not know is that he's seen his fair share of issues throughout his young life.

Adin Ross was attacked by a family member in his sleep

Even though Ross might portray himself as carefree, he's experienced trauma. When Adin Ross was twelve, a mentally unstable family member attacked him while he was asleep, stabbing the streamer in the arm.


Ross showed the scar to Adam22 on a "No Jumper" podcast back in April 2021. He had to get nine stitches for the wound, but Ross explained that the trauma didn't really get to him as a child. He brought up the fact that it took about a week for him to get over the situation mentally, even at the young age of 12.

In fact, he brought up the idea that the event affected his family, mainly his parents, more than it affected him. There were no warning signs that this family member would have attacked anyone, so the incident came as a big shock.

The family member went to jail before moving to a mental health facility to get professional care and resources.

If you or someone you know may be the victim of child abuse, please contact the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-4-A-Child (1-800-422-4453) or contact their live chat services.


Adin Ross has had major issues with his stomach

Adin Ross has struggled with health issues for years, including a problem with his stomach. In 2020, the content creator was forced to cancel a stream because of an issue he had bloodwork done for.

A few months later, he updated fans on the situation. He explained that he wakes up feeling nauseous and has intense stomach pain every morning and that doctors couldn't find a solution. The streamer also had COVID-19 in February 2021, and it caused his stomach issues to flare up worse than usual.


Ross has never told fans what his diagnosis is, and he hasn't updated the internet on a potential solution. Considering how open he's been about it in the past, it's likely that he never received a solid answer from a doctor and is still seeking medical advice. From the looks of it, this could be a chronic stomach issue that he must live with for the rest of his life.

Adin Ross can't be himself on the internet

Ross' content has changed throughout his time streaming, something that he addressed in a chat with fans. While he doesn't think he's completely changed, he does think his content is now "commercialized," or essentially more friendly to the internet.


He's also called streaming "scary" in the past because he doesn't even feel like he can behave normally. In an "Inside the Screen" interview, Adin spoke up about the fact that his humor just isn't acceptable in a lot of spaces online. He especially wants to be careful since he's gotten banned on Twitch in the past for reckless behavior.

Ross has also mentioned that people on the internet were starting to get to him mentally — it's actually what caused him to change his Twitch to subscribers only. He explained that it's hard for him to be himself when the chat comes after him for the things he casually says to his friends, but he's determined to keep going and pushing forward. For Ross, the balance between edgy humor and marketability seems crucial.
