Why he was on Court?
In May 2022, WhistlinDiesel and his friends were out on the water on jet skis in an area where that wasn’t allowed. At one moment, they realized where they are and headed to shore, however, an angry man approached them and began yelling and swearing.
WhistlinDiesel seems to try to be nice, and perhaps even wanted to apologize, but then began making fun of the man’s exaggerated response. Although it seemed that the fight is over, WhistlinDiesel and his friends noticed that a police boat was coming up to them. They were given tickets for skiing in the wrong place, and had to go to court.
WhistlinDiesel invited his fans to come to their court case and to bring signs against the splash legislation. In return, he promised to take pictures with as many people as possible.
In January 2023, WhistlinDiesel went to court in a new Ferrari, which according to him he could afford thanks to this court case.
Love life and girlfriend
There have been various rumors about WhistlinDiesel’s love life, and one of them is that he married when he was 18 years old. This information hasn’t been confirmed by him, but many believe that this is the truth.
His wife, known online as Mrs WhistlinDiesel and whose real name is Rae, is also a YouTuber, but although she has over 100,000 subscribers on her channel, there’s currently, no video.
She is active on Instagram, Twitter, Twitch, and OnlyFans. It is known that Rae was also 18 years old when she married Cody, and thus they were known online as Mr. and Mrs WhistlinDiesel. She’s made an appearance in several videos by her husband, however, nothing more is known about her.
In June 2022, WhistlinDiesel posted a photo of a girl named Katie Miller, and confirmed that she is his girlfriend. Earlier that year, his fans speculated about his and Rae’s divorce, since they noticed that he hasn’t posted any photos of the two of them together for a long time.
We have visited Katie Miller’s Instagram, but since it’s set to private, we couldn’t find more information about her.
As of February 2023, WhistlinDiesel is in a relationship, he was married, but he doesn’t have children.
Many WhistlinDiesel’s fans believe that his family is rich, and that thanks to that fact, he can afford to buy such expensive and luxury vehicles. Recently, he bought Ferrari worth over $400,000 and posted a video featuring himself trying to destroy the car.
According to sources, as of early 2023, his net worth has been estimated at over $2 million. Most of the income WhistlinDiesel has earned is through his YouTube channel, from which he has a monthly income of around $30,000.
