Before Louie Castro aka Louie’s Life ever began dishing out the “chisme” on his YouTube channel, his sister, Yoatzi Castro, developed a platform of her own.
Both siblings are known for their videos of “Story Time” and for their vlogs of their lifestyle, and neither has shied away from sharing.
Though Yoatzi has always shown the good aspects of her long-term relationship with ex-boyfriend Jessie Andrade, she has since been forthcoming about what was really going on behind the scenes.
In October of 2016, the two welcomed a son named Travis, and their relationship formally ended at the end of 2020.
For the first time in a vlog entitled “I’M HEALING.” the influencer addressed her breakup at length. The video came out a day before her ex-boyfriend was arrested.
Why Was The Former Boyfriend Of Yoatzi Castro Arrested?
While Yoatzi continued to feature Andrade in her videos until December of 2020, long before that, their relationship had started to sour. Andrade was arrested on Jan. 19 after he broke into Yoatzi’s Watsonville, Calif. house.
Before Andrade finally surrendered to police, a nine-hour standoff took place. A video of the arrest, and a statement about what happened via Instagram, were released by the Watsonville Police Department.
“Jessie Andrade, 30, is now facing several charges, including felony criminal threats, brandishing of a firearm, felony burglary, violation of a domestic violence restraining order, and resisting/delaying his arrest,” the Watsonville Police Department statement read.
According to the statement, Andrade broke into Yoatzi’s home in the early morning hours on Jan. 19. He allegedly “pointed a gun at her, their 4-year-old son, and his ex-girlfriend’s father. The victims were able to safely leave the residence and call the police.”

When officers arrived at the residence, Andrade refused to exit, and “crisis negotiators spent hours attempting to convince the suspect to surrender.”
At around 10:30 a.m., he left the house and he was arrested upon his departure. At this time, any subsequent developments on the case and the arrest have not been shared publicly. Yoatzi published a post on her Instagram stories on Jan. 20, following the traumatic experience.
Thank you all for all of the blessings, love, and support that is being sent to my family. Words can’t explain how I felt during that moment, but I am beyond thankful that God and my grandparents in Heaven gave me the strength necessary to survive and protect my son. Your support means everything to me and my family during these crazy times,” she wrote. “But we’re all OK and things will get better…”
Yoatzi posted a video on YouTube a day before the arrest and she discussed the relationship.
In her “I’M HEALING…” video, Yoatzi never specifically mentioned Andrade’s name, but she did address how turbulent her recent breakup had been.
The 20-minute video was the first time her breakup had been discussed at length by the vlogger, but she said she was not yet going to share “crazy detail[s]”
