‘I have no one to talk to,’ Elodie cries in viral clip on being homeless

Popular social media influencer Elodie Zone opened up in a raw and emotional video about her recent struggles, revealing a harrowing story of abuse and homelessness that has left her feeling isolated and alone.

In the video, which quickly went viral, Elodie bravely detailed how a friend whom she trusted threw her out of their home in the middle of the night, leaving her with nowhere to go.

“At the beginning of the year, I posted my reality to TikTok. That was great. It got a lot of support. I talked about losing my family, parting ways with my friends, dealing with a breakup due to intimacy issues, and losing my job,” she narrated, her voice heavy with emotion.

Elodie recounted how she had been forced to move out of her apartment due to various challenges in her life, leaving many of her belongings with different people, including her prized possessions and sentimental items.

However, on that fateful night, her friend returned home intoxicated and became physically abusive, leading to her eviction from the premises.

“I have been hopping, skipping, and jumping from the entire month of February 2024, from Airbnb to Airbnb. It was nice having specific things in people’s homes that I trusted. I did a whole house fumigation [in the host friend’s place] because they had a cockroach infestation. It cost Sh8,000. I did nice things to help sustain a home,” she shared, describing her desperate attempts to find temporary shelter.

Distraught and visibly shaken, Elodie revealed that this wasn’t the first time she had experienced abuse in her relationships, disclosing, “I have been in four relationships, and two of them have been physically abusive, and people will never know. I have just come from being beaten, and it got so bad that the caretaker literally evacuated me into another apartment and said I’m not going to leave you in this apartment with this guy.”

Sitting amidst her scattered belongings in an empty apartment, Elodie expressed the profound pain of feeling unheard and misunderstood.

“The worst feeling in the world is one of just not being heard. Whether something bad has happened to you or you have had a negative thought, and I hate that even as this person threw me out. People Don’t listen to me, and this is the same issue I had with my family,” she confessed.

Elodie’s decision to share her story online stemmed from a place of desperation and loneliness.

“I lost my job and all my streams of income. I’m so isolated. I’m numb,” adding, “Some of you are wondering, why are you posting this online? Because I have no one else to talk to. And believe me, I used to talk to my dog Max, but he isn’t here,” she lamented, highlighting the depths of her isolation.
