As David Dobrik put it, "I'm good."

It's been nearly two months since the YouTube star swiftly filed for divorce from pal Jason Nash's mom, Lorraine Nash. Just weeks earlier, David flew to Boston to propose and the two subsequently jetted off to Las Vegas to tie the knot, simultaneously achieving his goal of becoming Jason's stepdad. "That would be hysterical," Lorraine said of David's wish.

"Last night I became my best friends stepfather by marrying his mother," David announced on Instagram in May with a YouTube video chronicling the series of events. "So grateful for this opportunity. I'll treat you as my own. Love you Jason, now go take out the trash it's stinking up our living room." 

However, by June, the marriage was no more. E! News obtained court documents, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on June 11, showing David's petition for dissolution of the marriage.

"I am heartbroken to announce that Lorraine and I have decided to end our romantic relationship. We wish this news would have come from us first, however, we know it's difficult for the media to resist speculation," he wrote on Instagram at the time. "We have tried so hard to make things work. Sometimes in life you just aren't enough for someone; no matter what you do for them or what you try to be. Lorraine, you have been my light, my muse and my confidante. You've taught me not only how to love another person but how to love myself. We will continue to love and support one another while being great friends and parents to our children. I thank everyone in advance for respecting our privacy at this time."

Naturally, the split inspired more jokes from the YouTube personality. "Bought my son a car to get his mind off the divorce," Dobrik posted on Instagram in July.

But, how is David doing post-divorce? "I'm good. I'm just happy to be thinking about myself again. It's a lot. It's a lot to have to deal with going through that," he told E! News at Variety's Young Hollywood issue party Tuesday night. "It's a lot caring for another person, so it's nice. I'm just focusing on myself currently."

Sounds like there are no hard feelings!
