Sarah, Onision's youngest alleged victim, has bravely come forward to share her story. In the fourth hour of "Onision: In Real Life", Sarah describes the five-year relationship she endured with Greg (aka Onision) and Kai, beginning when she was just 14 years old.

Just one day after the release of the third episode of the discovery+ original Onision: In Real Life, Greg “Onision” Jackson was demonetized by YouTube for his off-platform behavior relating to child safety. This action is rare, and it temporarily halted Jackson’s career as an income-generating content creator on YouTube. The move sent shockwaves throughout the YouTube community, with the debate raging over whether the action was too little, or too much.

Though swirling in a sea of allegations about underage grooming and predatory behavior, as of May 2021, Jackson has not been charged with any crimes, and maintains both his innocence and a social media presence across many popular platforms.

Sarah became a fan of Onision as a 12-year-old, and began interacting with Kai on social media when she was just 14. By the time she was 15, Greg and Kai invited Sarah to their home in Washington, and when she turned 16, Sarah’s mother signed over power of attorney to Kai, and Sarah moved in with them. For years, a tumultuous relationship with the couple ensued, during which she lived in their home at various times.

The story snowballed across multiple famous YouTube channels, and as Sarah’s story gained traction, Onision responded by denying her allegations categorically and turned the tables, insisting Sarah had raped both him and Kai.

In her own words, she claims “I was just like a toy for them.” After she finally left their house in 2019 at age 19, Sarah publicly alleged years of grooming, inappropriate sexual behavior and abuse that she claims shook her to her core and changed her life forever.
