Durte Dom, the former member of David Dobrik’s Vlog Squad, recently came under a lot of heat following sexual assault allegations. So we did a little digging on Dom to discover more about him than what we have seen in David Dobrik’s vlogs.
Dominykas Zeglaitis, more popularly known as Durte Dom, is an American YouTuber and musician, mostly popular for appearing on famous YouTuber David Dobrik’s videos of his Vlog Squad on his youtube channel.

Early Life and Career
Durte Dom was born Dominykas Zeglaitis in Lithuania, but moved to Chicago later in his childhood. Information about his birth year or parents is unknown, however he is believed to be 25 years of age as of 2021, so it can be assumed that he was born some time during the early 90s. He first began his journey as a social media personality in January of 2011, when he tweeted his thoughts on social media site Twitter. His rap career boosted in 2014, when he released his rap mixtape Looking To Land, shortly after which he released another mixtape titled Highly Inappropriate. He has since appeared in his vlogs with artists like Rae Sremmurd, Soulja Boy, and Migos. In 2015, he made an appearance in a vlog of David Dobrik’s Vlog Squad on Dobrik’s channel, and has appeared in dozens of videos since.
Although he has been demonetized by Youtube post assault allegations and his career is expected to go downhill henceforth, his current estimated net worth is somewhere around $80,000.
An interesting thing to note: the first video Durte Dom uploaded on his channel was titled “BREAKING UP WITH GIRLFRIEND?” on 20th November 2016. The video, however, was only a skit and seems to have no mentions about his real-life girlfriend. In real life though.
Sexual Assault Scandal
In March of 2021, allegations of sexual misconduct against Durte Dom made news as a woman named Hannah (name changed) came out accusing Dom of having raped her while she and some of her friends were in the Vlog Squad mansion shooting a Vlog Squad video in 2018. According to Hannah, Dom, after having failed to acquire her consent, proceeded to rape her. Since the allegations have surfaced, David Dobrik has uploaded a video on his channel addressing the allegations against Dom and has expressed utter disbelief on how someone he knew from his childhood was capable of “hurting others like that,” stating that consent was very important to him. Durte Dom himself on the other hand disappeared from all social media following the incident and only posted a video addressing the situation weeks after the allegations were made public. In his video, he sympathizes with victims of sexual assault but proceeds to deny all accusations against him, stating that there is no truth behind Hannah’s statements. After he was accused of rape, Youtube has demonetized all his videos, David Dobrik has announced he will not be including Dom in his vlogs and stop filming videos with him from now on, and Dom has lost followers rapidly on all of his social media accounts.
