Family, Religion & Ethnicity
In February 2021, he took to Instagram to announce that he had accepted Islam. In the post, he wrote,
Growing up in Europe the word Islam was always connected with negativity, war, terrorism and to be completely honest I was never a religious person before so I didn’t really care what people thought back then. My best childhood friends were Muslims and deep inside we are all human beings in the same simulation we call life.”

Relationships, Wife & Children

Later, he dated Zoya Nasir, a Pakistani actress and beautician.
In May 2021, Zoya called off her relationship with Betzmann after his take on Israel and Palestine issue in which he criticized Pakistan’s stand. In a post, Betzmann wrote,
Sharing something which is all over mainstream media won’t make any difference. Stop feeling guilty for others when you’re littering your own country, not helping your own people and community.”
Days after Betzmann’s post, Zoya shared,
It’s with a heavy heart I’m announcing that Christian Betzmann and I are no longer engaged to be married. His sudden change in stance towards my culture, my country, my people and insensitivity towards my religion has lead me to take this difficult and irrevocable decision.”
Talking about his onset in the vlogging business, in an interview, he said,
It all started when I was backpacking in Cambodia. Two guys from the hostel were admiring my photography and told me to use Instagram. Once Instagram released the story function I got pretty much hooked into the video format which lead me to start my YouTube channel.”

In the same year, he launched his software application ‘Asia Lightroom Preset Collection 18,’ a picture editor that included eight preset filters and other customization tools. Later, he started his YouTube Channel ‘Betzmann Vlogs,’ meanwhile, he was working as a swimming coach in Bangkok. Thereafter, he uploaded various videos like travel vlogs, 20 dollar challenge videos, and other random vlogs.
In 2020, he launched his own clothing line ‘Betzmann Apparel.’
In November 2020, Christian Betzmann’s girlfriend, Zoya Nasir, was criticized by her fans and followers for wearing a figure-hugging Halloween costume, which offended some religious fanatics in Pakistan. INCPAK

As the comments began to accumulate, Christian put an end to the audience brutality by posting a comment that read “For all religious opinions make sure to mention your concerns in your next prayers – HATE COMMENTS WILL BE BLOCKED!.”
