After Swatosh confirmed her departure, netizens speculated there might be drama behind it since she had joined the content house only in February 2022.
The TikToker had only been with Petrou and his team for four months. As a result, fans thought something dramatic had gone down between Swatosh and the group.
But in a new YouTube video uploaded by Petrou titled, ‘Saying Goodbye,’ he and Swatosh confirmed that was not the case.
“I’ve talked about this so many times in my channel, and this is the only thing that actually makes me upset. Hype house started two years ago, we have had 32 members so far, and people make it seem like you have to be a part of the brand forever. It’s just not realistic,” said Petrou.

He noted Swatosh came with a strong following, and they helped her a little on her journey. He asked fans to be on the lookout for the TikToker as she had exciting projects she was working on.

Tabitha Swatosh Updates Fans About Her Life
In the video, Swatosh also mentioned she was looking for a new apartment. Then in another update on TikTok, she told fans it was not smooth sailing.
She shared she was supposed to meet a woman to check out a few apartments in Los Angeles, but unfortunately, she had been stood up after making her wait for three hours.
The TikToker added she didn’t know someone could not get an apartment in a day, so she began listing all the options she had left for where she was going to sleep.
Her options were crashing on her friend’s couch, flying home to Missouri, camping on the beach, and asking her ex for help.
Ultimately, she rejected all the options and said she was sleeping in her car. Not sure if she was serious, but fans in the comment section offered her a place to stay.
