Eventually the two started posting their selfies together at Coachella and also produced and posted YouTube videos to share with their fans. One such video showcased them kissing each other.The duo broke up much to the dismay of their fans, which came to light in December 2014. The fans were so much upset that many accused Lindemann for such breakup and some even sent her death threats. The two reunited in March 2015 only to breakup after a couple of months. Although in today’s world social media fame is a big thing for any star and sharing personal drama with fans has also become a fashion, but if not handled with care and sensibility it might turn detrimental for one’s career. The same happened with Reynolds when a private video of the two stars was leaked. From the video it seemed that he was trying to force Lindemann to undergo oral sex with him, while he was filming it. He was severely condemned and many even tagged him as ‘rapist.’ Reynolds apologised for such action in writing to his Twitter followers who numbered more than 2.38 million at that time. However he again got involved in a heated spat with Lindemann on Twitter. He not only lost contracts of the companies he campaigned for but also some of his fans.
