The two have been spotted a number of times in the past months, and Maine shares that she wanted to go out with Arjo so they could get to know each other better. She then turns to her fans and asks them to show some respect. “You may not be required to love the people around the person you idolize, but I don’t think it’s too much to show them at least some respect.”

She also shared that she cannot be Yaya Dub forever. “Sadly, I cannot stay as Yaya Dub forever. This is Maine, the real me. And this is real life. And I cannot go on with my life behind a fictional character.”

“I know how you feel, believe me. I know you invested so much time, effort, and money on us just to show how much you love us and we really do try our best to make you feel that everything you did/do for us is much appreciated and treasured – that we love you dearly and all of you are special to our hearts, too..”
