NikkieTutorials, a YouTuber with 13.5 million subscribers, told her fans over the weekend that her home in Uden, Netherlands, had been broken into.

The beauty guru, whose real name is Nikkie de Jager, posted a statement on her Instagram on Sunday where she said one of her "biggest nightmares became reality" when she was robbed at gunpoint in her own house.

De Jager lives with her fiancée Dylan Drossaers and they were both at home when the robbers broke in.

"Dylan and myself got attacked but physically we're okay," de Jager wrote. "Mentally it's a whole other story."

She said she was writing the message to let her fans know she was "okay" and safe, but would be taking some time off posting.

"Thank you for understanding as I take the next couple of days to myself," she said, adding a heart emoji.

Dutch news outlets reported that at least three people were part of the break-in which occurred at around 4 p.m. on Saturday.

Local police tweeted that one resident in the house sustained "superficial injuries."

"We conduct research at the location, such as hearing witnesses," the tweet reads. "Our forensic investigation department will also carry out a trace investigation."

Fellow Influencers and friends have flooded de Jager's post with messages of support.

"Oh my God I'm so happy you guys are okay," wrote GiGi Gorgeous.

Marlena Stell, the CEO of Makeup Geek said she was glad de Jager and Drossaers were safe.

"Sending you so much love," she said.
