Social media star PewDiePie has closed a memorable week by reaching 100 million subscribers on YouTube, days after he married his long-term girlfriend.
The Swedish internet sensation, real name Felix Kjellberg, 29, reached the milestone after a race with the Indian record label and film production company T-Series, which hit the 100 million target in May.
Despite starting an online campaign to get even more subscriptions to his frequently viewed channel, PewDiePie previously admitted that he didn't care who won the competition.
Time to celebrate: social media star PewDiePie has closed a memorable week by reaching 100 million subscribers on YouTube, days after he married his long-term girlfriend
& # 39; Everyone rages, & # 39; YouTube does not really become YouTube & # 39; and & # 39; it will never be the same again & # 39 ;, he said in 2018.
& # 39; I think that if YouTube shifts in a way that makes it feel more businesslike, then something else will take its place. & # 39;
His fan event went out of his way to increase his number of subscribers by financing radio ads and billboards.
PewDiePie has yet to respond to the huge number of subscribers.
On Monday the controversial Swedish vlogger and Marzia Bisognin, 26, tied the knot in the Temperate House and the Nash Conservatory in Kew Gardens.
He announced the news on Tuesday through his Instagram and Twitter accounts and wrote: & # 39; We are married !!! I am the happiest I can be. I am so lucky that I can share my life with this wonderful woman. & # 39;
Marzia also posted a stunning gallery of images on her social media pages and told her 6.2 million Instagram followers that the day had special meaning for the couple.
She wrote: & # 39; Yesterday, August 19 – after exactly 8 years since we met – we celebrated our wedding with our best friends and family.

& # 39; It was the most beautiful day that I will cherish forever. I am so grateful to all the people who have made time to attend the event and have helped us celebrate our marriage.
& # 39; I feel that I am the happiest person and I am so full of love. Incredibly ecstatic to be able to call Felix my husband for the rest of our lives. & # 39;
An eyewitness told MailOnline Tuesday: & # 39; It was a late afternoon / early evening wedding. It turned out to be a small and intimate affair with only a select handful of people.
& # 39; The guests used the Elizabeth Gate, the same entrance as customers. There appeared not to be much security, only a few employees around the location with the wedding in sight of visitors.
WHO IS PEWDIEPIE?
PewDiePie is the alias of Swedish YouTube giant Felix Kjellberg.
The 29-year-old internet sensation is a controversial character with the most subscribed channel on the video site.
He has no fewer than 99 million subscribers on YouTube – more than the UK population.
Both his parents, Johanna and Ulf Kjellberg, are successful Chief Executives from their respective companies in Sweden.

And after he was educated at Goteborgs High Samskola, located in one of the most prosperous areas of the city, he could also be destined for a business life.
But luckily for his millions of fans, Kjelberg's ambitions were not in line with those of his classmates at Chalmers.
PewDiePie has previously earned blacklash for including racist and anti-Semitic messages in his & # 39; s videos.
In July 2018, he placed an insensitive meme related to 25-year-old pop star Demi Lovato, after her overdose and alleged use of heroin.
The YouTuber, who lives in Brighton, UK, shared a meme with an unobtrusive character that their mother asked for money. The character pretends that the money is used to buy a hamburger, but then uses the money to buy heroin & # 39; like a boss & # 39 ;.
PewDiePie eventually deleted his tweet.
In February 2017, Disney broke ties with the YouTuber after depicting a man with the sign & # 39; Death to all Jews & # 39;
& # 39; I'm sorry, I didn't think they would really do it, & # 39; PewDiePie told his viewers in a clip. & # 39; I feel partially responsible. It might just be my gross sense of humor, but I think there's something funny about that. & # 39;
Seven months later, in September 2017, he was caught shouting the N word during a live stream of himself while playing the online shooting game Playerunknown & # 39; s Battlegrounds.
& # 39; At one point, PewDiePie and Marzia seemed to be alone at the Elizabeth Gate Nash Conservatory while guests waited outside. & # 39;
The couple met online in 2011, with Marzia moving to Sweden to live with PewDiePie six months later. They later moved to Brighton, UK – a well-known place for YouTubers such as Joe Sugg, Zoella and Alfie Deyes – with their Edgar and Maya pugs.
Marzia was a well-known fan of her now-husband's online career and is believed to have slipped into his DM's while living in Italy. He answered and they came close.
Her screen name – before they met – was even CutiePieMarzia, a supposed nod to her YouTube idol.

He jumped on a plane to Italy to meet her and remembered four years ago in an interview with the Swedish radio: & If there was anything I was learning right now, if you want something, get it, otherwise drop it. So I went to Italy.
& # 39; I didn't even tell anyone that I was leaving. I just left home and left a note to my parents in the kitchen and told them I could no longer see the dog.
My deal to stay at home was that if I didn't have a job, I had to walk the dog every lunch, a job I did miserably. & # 39;
He admitted that the & # 39; the craziest & # 39; was that he once did.
& # 39; She waited with a friend at the arrival gate. Really nicer than in the video & # 39; s she sent me. & # 39;
He introduced her on April 27, 2018. Marzia announced the news on Instagram with a photo with an engagement ring and the title: "Felix presented! & # 39;
The net assets of PewDiePie are currently assumed to be approximately $ 30 million (£ 24.7 million). Marzia's & # 39; s is $ 2 million (£ 1.6 million).
COURTING CONTROVERSION: PEWDIEPIE & # 39; S PUBLIC DRAMA & # 39; S IN THE YEARS
In his early career, before he found much mainstream success, PewDiePie used rape jokes in some videos, for which he drew criticism and controversy.
He tackled the problem through a message in the social media and wrote: & # 39; I just wanted to make it clear that I no longer make rape, as I said before, I don't want to hurt anyone and I apologize if that was once the case. & # 39;
PewDiePie was branched to non-gaming content and was noticed for the use of racist comments. This led to a hashtag – #PewdiepieIsOverParty – to trend on Twitter worldwide.
He then uploaded a video of him paying a duo on the Fiverr website to display a message with the text & # 39; DEATH TO ALL JEWS & # 39 ;. He immediately apologized and said, “I'm sorry, I didn't think they would really do it. I feel partially responsible. It might just be my gross sense of humor, but I think there's something funny about that. & # 39;
After this, The Wall Street Journal revealed August 2016 content, in which he made anti-Semitic jokes and Nazi images.
He said in response: I do not support a hateful attitude in any way. I consider the content that I create as entertainment and not as a place for serious political commentaries. Although this was not my intention, I understand that these jokes were ultimately offensive. & # 39;
Later that month, the maker-multi-channel network of Disney Studios broke ties with the vlogger. Google has also taken action by removing it from the Google Preferred advertising program and canceling the Scare PewDiePie YouTube Red series.
He used the & # 39; N word & # 39; during an outbreak at another player while playing live Player Unnknown Battlegrounds later in the year, later vlogging: & # 39; blemish was not good. I'm really sorry if I have offended, hurt or disappointed anyone with this. In the position that I am, I should know better. & # 39;
He drew controversy over the use of the term & # 39; Twitch thots & # 39; allegedly a sexist comment about streamer Alinity. The video in which this was shown was deleted. There was a big feud among the vloggers as a result.
In the summer of 2018, PewDiePie placed an insensitive meme related to 25-year-old pop star Demi Lovato, after her overdose and alleged use of heroin.
The YouTuber shared a meme with an unobtrusive character who asked their mother for money. The character pretends that the money is used to buy a hamburger, but then uses the money to buy heroin & # 39; like a boss & # 39 ;.
PewDiePie eventually deleted his tweet.
Two months later he waded into another drama when he expressed his opinion about the upcoming boxing match between colleague YouTubers Logan Paul and KSI, and they both called & # 39; assholes & # 39; – specifically calling on the latter for comments he made about his now wife.
