Popular YouTuber and beauty guru Bretman Rock unexpectedly introduced his new boyfriend to the world in a video on April 13 — but it doesn’t look like fans will be getting a glimpse at his face anytime soon.

It’s always a big moment when YouTubers finally reveal their significant others, as in the case of YouTuber Jaclyn Hill, who finally showcased her beau in a tell-all Q & A video earlier this month.

In a similar fashion, fans were floored to find that Bretman Rock officially featured his new amore in a challenge video just a week later — but the makeup mogul didn’t exactly spill all the beans.

Bretman Rock is one of YouTube’s most popular beauty gurus, boasting over 7 million subscribers on the site.

Rather than putting a face and a name to the mysterious man (who he’s been dating for a year now), Rock’s boyfriend appeared just out of frame of the camera, with only his hands and arms showing as he tried his skills at doing the YouTube star’s makeup.

Rock explained the odd situation during the video, clarifying that he had no interest in showing off his boyfriend on social media, who doesn’t have any accounts, anyway.

“Let me tell you, social media is not the motherf**king way,” he announced. “…he doesn’t care for social media, which I f**king love!”

While Rock has teased his boyfriend in several Instagram posts without a face reveal, he officially featured his beau in a video for the first time in April 2020.

“I just don’t believe that’s one of the things that makes a relationship,” his boyfriend chimed in. “It never has been, in the first place.”

“Something I always told him from the get go was, ‘You’re not dating Bretman Rock. You’re dating Bretman,’” he continued. “…it is an extension of me.”

“It is weird, but at the same time, it works for us,” he added. “He just gets it. Like, this is my work, this is my job. This is not who I am. This is not who he’s dating.”

With Bretman’s boo eschewing social media due to his distaste for the internet, it looks like their relationship will be remaining private for as long as they choose — a luxury that many celebrities have failed to keep behind closed doors, as in the case of Logan Paul getting caught out with model Josie Canseco.


Thomas Petrou reveals Hype House could be moving again

Hype House co-founder Thomas Petrou has hinted that the content collective could be moving to a new location, once again, after multiple instances of their address leaking online.

The Hype House is one of TikTok’s most popular groups, comprised of several high-profile content creators who live under a single roof to make the most out of their videos and social media posts.

However, being internet-famous is no cakewalk, as overly enthusiastic fans have leaked their address multiple times online, resulting in a crowd of viewers clogging their driveway and generally disturbing the peace of their neighborhood.

Thus, the Hype House — alongside rival group the Sway House — have had to pack up and move quite a few times, but it doesn’t look like their moving days are over just yet.

In an October 27 vlog, Thomas Petrou revealed that he and his Hype House homies are looking for a new home, although they haven’t exactly nailed down a solid location at the moment.

“We’re looking into moving,” Thomas said in the vlog. “Not necessarily right this second, but we’re looking at properties today.”

Although the group found one home that several of them liked (the roof of which Thomas unfortunately showed off during the video), it doesn’t seem like things are set in stone, giving the group some wiggle room if they find a more suitable abode in the interim.

It makes sense that the House would want to move; in a series of Instagram posts in July, Petrou revealed that over 100 visitors would visit their home per day, making for a fairly chaotic living situation for just about everyone involved.

As previously mentioned, the Hype House aren’t the only ones facing such troubles. Even the Sway House and YouTuber David Dobrik have dealt with major invasions of privacy as of late, with strangers showing up to his doorstep and leaving their animals at his front gate.

While it’s definitely cool to meet your favorite internet stars, it’s important to remember that they are people, too, who are deserving of their own personal privacy — no matter how many followers they have on social media.
