Sam and Nia


Hours after it was revealed that YouTube sensation Sam Rader had an Ashley Madison account, he took to the web to clear the air once and for all in a new video post titled "Forgiven."

"My name has been associated with an Ashley Madison account website made for spouses who want to have an affair," he said on camera with his wife, Nia, sitting behind him.

"I'm here to clarify some of this to you guys because I owe it to you. I did make the account. I made the account two years ago. This is an issue that is in our past this was before I got onto YouTube."

A somber Sam continued to explain a bit of backstory behind his account, saying, "I brought this to our church at the time…this was brought to my wife's attention. She has forgiven me for this mistake that I have made and opening the account. I sought forgiveness to God and he has forgiven me. So I've been completely cleansed of this sin."

After looking at Nia and exchanging smiles, Sam wanted to answer one burning question on everyone's minds…

"I need to be clear that I never had an affair with anybody ever while I've been married. This account was opened out of pure fleshly desire and just simple curiosity."

Nia chimed in at the very end of the clip saying, "I have forgiven Sam and I stand behind him. This is in our past and it's unfortunate that it's being dug up now but our marriage is worth fighting for."

The married couple first made headlines after a sweet video went viral in which Sam surprised his wife with news of their pregnancy. Tragically, days later they revealed the sad news that Nia had suffered a miscarriage.
