Gabby Petito’s friend claims her relationship with Brian Laundrie was ‘rocky’

A friend of the late Gabby Petito is shedding light on her relationship with her fiancé Brian Laundrie.

Gabby and Brian recently quit their jobs to travel across the United States in a van, vlogging their adventures for their YouTube channel.

But just weeks later, Brian returned home to Florida without his wife-to-be and ten days later, Gabby’s family in New York reported her missing.

The body of the 22-year-old YouTuber was found at a forest in Wyoming last weekend, and the manner of her death has initially been determined as a homicide.

The whereabouts of Brian, who has been declared a “person of interest” in the case, are currently unknown and last week, a federal arrest warrant was issued for his arrest for the unauthorised use of a debit card following Gabby’s death.

Rose Davis, who was friends with Gabby, appeared on Saturday night’s episode of 48 Hours – where she opened up about Gabby and Brian’s “rocky” relationship.

Recalling the moment she found out Gabby and Brian were embarking on their road trip, Rose said: “I was concerned with them spending that much time together because when I was last seeing them, they were rocky.”

“I feel like Brian never thought that he was gonna be enough, and obviously he sees the beauty in Gabby. She’s gorgeous. And jealousy can turn into rage.”

Rose alleged Brian once stole Gabby’s I.D. to stop her going out, which she claimed “really upset” Gabby.

In an interview with PEOPLE, Rose described Brian and Gabby’s relationship as “very toxic”.

She told the publication: “At the time, it just seemed like he was jealous. Honestly, it seemed like a jealousy problem, which I understood because, you look at Brian and then you look at Gabby and you’re like, ‘Gabby, you could have anyone in this entire world.'”

“He did have jealousy issues and that was apparent. I mean that you could see right through it when after you hang out with them just a few times.”

Rose recalled telling her mother after she first met Brian that she thought he was “a little weird”

“I said, ‘Something’s a little off about him. I don’t know what.’ It was the first thing I said… I tried not to judge their relationship, but I knew something was off. I just, I didn’t expect this, obviously. I just thought he was just controlling.”

Gabby’s funeral took place on Sunday in Holbrook, New York.
