TikTok star Addison Rae and YouTuber Tana Mongeau are fueling rumors of a possible romance between them, after Mongeau joked about stealing Bryce Hall’s ex-girlfriend from him in a good-humored riff.

It’s no secret that Addison Rae and fellow TikToker Bryce Hall have parted ways, with the two sparking speculation among fans that their pseudo-relationship had finally sunk to the bottom of the ocean with a few cryptic tweets in early August.

They seemed to confirm their split in a smiley photograph shortly thereafter, claiming that they’d “handled things privately” off social media.

It seems that Addison’s newly-single status is raising some eyebrows, though — and is even prompting some good-natured flirting from fellow influencer Tana Mongeau, who is “officially” shooting her shot with the viral video star.

Mongeau posted a pointed video to TikTok duetting one of Rae’s bikini-clad videos, writing, “Addison, I’m officially getting at you. Bryce, I’m done acting straight and supportive. I’m next.”

Mongeau also joked that she was “coming for your b**tch” toward Bryce Hall in a clip taken by paparazzi photographer Kevin Wong, leading fans to seriously consider if the two might become an item in the near future.

A little while later, Addison Rae commented on her relationship status in an August 27 tweet, writing, “Single and ready to jingle. Anyways, Christmas is literally in 4 months, wtf.”

That’s not all; it seems that Rae even slid into Mongeau’s DMs, with the YouTuber posting a screenshot of their conversation to her Instagram story (making sure to tag Bryce Hall, for good measure).

It looks like Addison Rae and Tana Mongeau are sparking up a conversation.

Mongeau likewise posted a humorous meme of the two to her story, which showed she and Rae embracing while a wistful Bryce looked on — hearkening to the “distracted boyfriend meme” of internet fame.

Tana Mongeau couldn’t resist poking fun at Rae’s ex-boyfriend, Bryce Hall.

Whether or not the two are in the “talking” stage remains to be seen, but we’re so here for it — and so are fans, apparently, with many a commenter already coming up with their ship name: “Taddison.” (Yay? Nay? It’s cute, either way!)

The Billboard Music Awards kicked off on the night of October 14, and TikTok star Addison Rae was one of the personalities conscripted to host them; but her presentation for winner Harry Styles didn’t go as planned.

Addison Rae is one of TikTok’s most popular (and highest paid) content creators, boasting well over 40 million followers on the app for her cutesy choreography and bubbly, Southern personality.

As one of the net’s biggest celebrities, it came as little surprise that she was assigned to help host the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, alongside fellow TikToker Spencer Polanco Knight and even singer Kelly Clarkson.

However, her presentation for ‘Watermelon Sugar’ singer and One Direction member Harry Styles wasn’t well-received, with many on the net taking issue with her “awkward” demeanor on-stage.

In fact, it doesn’t seem that Rae even opened up the envelope when she presented his award, which she accepted “on his behalf,” since he couldn’t be present at the Los Angeles Dolby Theater for the ceremony.

Her mannerisms incited quite a bit of criticism from online viewers, who found her stage presence to be less-than-ideal, with some also taking issue with a social media influencer taking part in such a prestigious event.

“Why was that the most awkward presentation… EVER?” one critic wrote.

“I feel awkward… does anyone else feel awkward?” another chimed in.

“She looks like she is in a funeral,” one user quipped. “Also, the way in how she announced that Harry won is so cringy. Like girl, put some emotion in it, ‘cause its Harry freaking Styles who you’re talking about, not a TikTok dancer.”

Although Rae has yet to respond to the criticism she’s received since presenting Harry’s award, it certainly is exciting to see influencers break into the space of traditional celebrities — although there’s bound to be some bumps in the road along the way.
