Addison Rae claims she’s “losing friends” over Troy Zarba dating rumors

TikTok star Addison Rae has officially broken things off with former beau and Sway House member Bryce Hall — but fans are already pairing her with another guy, and Rae claims the speculation is harming her personal life.

Addison Rae and Bryce Hall became the internet’s most talked-about couple since the impromptu marriage between Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul last year, although these TikTok lovebirds weren’t ever actually “together.”

Appearing in each others videos and social media posts, it certainly seemed like the two were dating on the down-low: but both Hall and Rae claimed that there was nothing official between them.

However, on September 3, Rae confirmed that she and Hall had broken off their purported romance for good, with both parties publishing a series of tweets further affirming their split.

TikTokers Bryce Hall and Addison Rae stirred up dating rumors for months before officially confirming their split in September 2020.

Fans have since begun to pair Addison Rae with TikToker Troy Zarba mere days later, who was seen posing for a photo at Rae’s home shortly after her breakup with Hall — and it isn’t boding well for her personal affairs.

Rae spoke out on the issue in a series of Instagram comments on September 7, writing, “The fact I’m losing friendships over this makes me so upset.”

“I’ve been friends with Troy since August,” she continued. “Did y’all not see my NYC vlog? Haha, also, do y’all not hang out with your friends or should I just not have them?”

This statement bodes similar to her previous tweets following her split with Hall, where she wrote, “Stop forcing friendships into relationships.”

Thus far, fans are divided as to Addison’s response to the drama, both hoping for a new romantic prospect for their favorite TikToker while also begging critics to stop obsessing over her love life.

Although she’s in the public eye, it can’t be easy having all your interactions placed under a microscope — especially after TikToker Nessa Barrett hit back at paparazzi for filming her during an emotional moment at dinner.

It seems like Addison continues to steal the social media spotlight, for good or ill — but there’s no denying the stress stars feel when placed under the intense pressure of fans in every aspect of their lives.


Charli D’Amelio reveals her weirdest makeup faux pas with Maddie Ziegler

Charli D’Amelio is more than TikTok’s queen bee; she’s also a competitive dancer, Dunkin’ Donuts connoisseur, and a full-blown makeup mogul, although she hasn’t always been the expert beauty guru she is today.

Charli revealed her collaboration with makeup giant Morphe in late July alongside older sister Dixie, bringing forth a slew of new products for fans to use and express their inner creativity.

That’s not all; Dixie has also had her face beat by none other than James Charles, who gave the TikToker a glamorous makeover that has scored well over 34 million views at the time of writing.

Considering her love for all things beauty and makeup, it comes as little surprise that Charli has a solid handle on new trends and products — but this wasn’t always the case, as she revealed during an October 27 video with fellow TikToker Maddie Ziegler.

During the video, in which the two gals gave fans a tutorial of their everyday makeup routine, Charli revealed that she often asks other names in the beauty space for help — most notably, James Charles.

In fact, Charli revealed that it was James who taught her that you have to dampen your beauty blender before applying any product to the face, a fact that appeared to catch Ziegler completely off-guard.

YouTuber James Charles collaborated with D’Amelio for a colorful makeup look, where the TikTok star opened up about the more difficult parts of being internet famous.

“I’ve been able to definitely ask a lot of questions from a lot of makeup artists that I’ve worked with,” she began. “It’s been everything. Like, I didn’t even know that I was supposed to wet my beauty blender until like, a few months ago.”

“James was like, ‘You know you’re supposed to wet that, right?’” she continued, drawing a shocked, “Really?” from Ziegler. “And I was like, ‘Ohhh.’ I call James all the time, and I’m like, ‘Hey, I don’t know how to do this. Can you help me?’”

(Topic begins at 9:37)

Luckily for Charli, she’s surrounded by many kind and helpful creators who are available to help coach her through the ins and outs of makeup artistry — something that she claims she still “needs a little bit more help with.”

Both TikTokers were quick to note that everyone is on a different stage in their makeup journey, and no matter what part you’re at, it’s always a fun time experimenting with new looks and products.
