The YouTube star has been open about Maya’s health struggles, with the dog suffering from dementia earlier this year.

He said in a vlog previously: ‘We’ll see how she develops. But Maya has the ‘dementies’. She’s so old. Her mind is kind of declining a bit.’

PewDiePie’s net worth is believed to be about $30 million (£24.7 million)

He boasts 111million YouTube subscribers – the most in the world, and was one of Time magazine’s most influential people in 2016.

Both of his parents, Johanna and Ulf Kjellberg, are successful Chief Executives of their respective companies in Sweden.

In 2019, PewDiePie married long-term girlfriend Marzia Bisogin in a beautiful London ceremony, eight years after they met. 

The couple tied the knot at the Temperate House and the Nash Conservatory in Kew Gardens and moved to Brighton with their two pugs Edgar and Maya.
