Addison Rae and Bryce Hall, known by some as ‘Braddison,’ have certainly sparked the internet’s curiosity. The TikTok stars’ on-again-off-again relationship has been confusing, to say the least, but fans remain invested in the pair’s journey. Here’s a rundown of the key moments.
October and November 2019
Bryce and Addison began to spark fan theories when they started collaborating on TikToks together. While their videos were lighthearted, the pair were seen to be getting rather close, lip-syncing to TikTok sounds about relationships, leaving fans of both stars in a frenzy.
After months of speculation, Bryce seemed to confirm that there was something going on between the pair when he posted a series of Instagram pictures of “new years kisses” with several of his guy friends. The final picture was him and Addison.
However things were made slightly confusing later in the month on January 30 when Bryce tweeted that “Addison and I are NOT dating! She’s doing her own thing and I’m doing mine. we’re still friends and plan to remain that way!” seemingly putting a stop to the rumors fuelled by their flirty TikToks.

Despite the pair no longer being together, Bryce still managed to melt hearts with stories about Addison when he claimed in an interview that she is “the best girl I’ve ever had” but still explained that there’s “nothing going on between them” and they’re still just friends.

While rumors they were getting back together bubbled under the surface, Addison’s mom Sheri responded to a comment claiming the pair seeing each other again with a blunt “they are not together.”
After months of posting TikToks together again, Bryce confirmed on the Mom’s Basement podcast that he and Addison were “testing the waters. We were kind of a thing, back in November. We were busy — super busy. And then quarantine happened. Less busy. That’s all. …It’s hard to find somebody out in LA, especially.”
The comment seemed to be a good indication that the pair were involved with each other in some respect, though it was far from confirmation of a relationship.
Following Addison deleting a picture of her and Bryce, along with a series of cryptic tweets from both stars, many fans assumed the pair had broken things off for good. The pair also decided to take things offline, with Addison posting a picture of them in a car with the caption “Handling things privately and off social media just like you guys said.”
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Addison confirmed what many fans had suspected. “There was a lot of times when we were on, we were off, and it was kind of just a confusing situation,” she explained. “Right now we’re just kind of both deciding that there are a lot of things going on in both of our lives that we really need to focus on.”

She finished by saying that “at the end of the day, we’re both still wishing the best for each other, and still friends.”
Just as it was looking as though Braddison was done for good, fan theories fired back up again when the pair posted images of them working out together, with one picture even showing Bryce kissing Addison’s head.
The pair also shared some adorable Halloween snaps, and were even caught sharing a kiss outside Saddle Ranch by the Hollywood Fix, leaving fans stunned.

However, on November 30 Addison and Bryce finally announced to the world that they’re in a committed relationship in an adorable YouTube video and a series of professional romantic Instagram pictures. The pair revealed that they actually dated twice, but their first romantic stint was short-lived, with Addison breaking things off after only three days.
But this time, the couple has already lasted much longer. Addison said Bryce asked her to be his girlfriend on October 13, and they’ve been going strong ever since.
While things had been going well for the TikTok couple, regularly posting adorable content featuring each other, they had a bump in the road when rumors that Bryce had cheated on Addison emerged through a series of texts that went viral.
Addison also tweeted some cryptic comments prior to that such as, “disappointed but not surprised,” leading some fans to worry that something had happened between the pair.
This eventually lead to Bryce tweeting a simple, “I didn’t cheat on Addison,” which seemed to quell some of the rumors. But many continued to flood Bryce’s comment section on TikTok criticizing him.
I didn’t cheat on addison.

Addison spoke out a few days later, choosing to address some of the hate that had been circulating as a result of the rumors. “I love y’all and I’m always so grateful for the kind words and support you show me,” she wrote. “Sharing my life with y’all makes me happy, but some things I choose to handle offline.”
She continued by saying, “when, and if, I want to share, I will make that decision,” reminding fans that “hate is never the answer.”
Fans were shocked after Addison revealed in a March 25 paparazzi interview with Shooting Stars TV that she and Bryce had broken up, saying, “No, we are not [together], but I wish him the very best,” going on to say, “he’s amazing, and I think we both are doing great things in our lives.”
Bryce uploaded his own video about the situation shortly after, confirming that they were no longer together, and had split around a month prior. He told fans that he didn’t cheat on Addison, despite the rumors that have been circulating online.
On the reason for the breakup, he explained, “Both of us are going through a ****ton of things right now behind the scenes that we don’t want necessarily comfortably want to talk about to a camera, especially. With all that stress, we mutually decided that it would be best to part ways.”
It’s unclear whether the pair will get back together in the future, but they’ve made it apparent that they wish the best for each other.
