TikTok stars Bryce Hall and Addison Rae have been a popular item among fans for quite some time, but they’ve confirmed the details of their suspected romance — until Bryce Hall finally spilled the beans about it on FaZe Banks’ podcast.

Bryce Hall and Addison Rae are two of TikTok’s most popular creators, and they seemingly began an unofficial romance in Fall 2019 after appearing in each other’s videos with some regularity.

That’s not all; Hall even referred to Rae multiple times in his written social media posts, further fueling the fire of fan speculation that the two were secretly dating. However, Addison herself put a stop to the rumors in an interview with YouTuber Jeff Wittek in June 2020, flatly claiming, “I am single.”

Despite her claims, the two have been spotted out several times since then on what appear to be dates (and have even begun making TikToks together again), once again leading fans to ask their ever-burning question: Are you two dating, or what?

Hall finally addressed the rumors in a July 22 episode of the Mom’s Basement podcast with FaZe Banks and KEEMSTAR, where the Drama Alert host pointedly asked the TikToker who he was currently seeing.

“I’m not dating anybody,” Hall began. “I’m like single, but… You just want me to say it. I’m seeing Addison — I’m not like old me, where I was just going around. I settled down a little bit. A lot a bit.”

“We’re 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.”

(Topic begins at 53:34)

 

While Hall’s answer is certainly confusing (and ultimately leaves us with more questions than answers), it does confirm that he and Rae are an item — of sorts.

Although it looks like the two aren’t capital O official just yet, they’re definitely involved with each other, marking good news for the Braddison shippers who’d predicted this romance all along (not that it was incredibly hard to see, in the first place).

Jaclyn Hill slammed for emotional Instagram posts about lipstick scandal

Makeup mogul and YouTube star Jaclyn Hill is facing backlash after posting a series of emotional statements to her Instagram Stories that appear to be about the fallout surrounding her lipstick scandal last year.

Jaclyn Hill is a bonafide beauty guru; boasting her very own makeup line and collaborations with such brands as Morphe, Hill has solidified her presence in YouTube’s beauty community — although not in the best way, at times.

In 2019, Hill received an avalanche of backlash after buyers claimed her lipsticks were cracked, covered in a fuzzy substance and even moldy, which critics still don’t feel that she has adequately made up for.

Shortly after the scandal went viral, Hill took a hiatus from social media and returned some time later to reveal that she had self-medicated her anxiety over the issue with alcohol, but has since been more active online and is taking steps toward recovery.

It seems that Hill is facing backlash over the incident yet again, after opening up to fans in a series of emotional posts via her Instagram Stories that appear to discuss the aftermath of the lipstick drama.

In her posts, Hill claimed that she was “trying so hard to fake a happy life for social media” during that time, stating that it is “hard for me to even look at pictures from this period” in her life.

Jaclyn Hill opened up about the difficulties she faced in her mental health during the aftermath of her lipstick scandal in summer 2019.

“I felt so undeserving of this award,” Hill said of her win at the American Influencer Awards. “I was ashamed of who I had let myself become and still believe 1,000 other influencers deserve recognition more than me.”

Jaclyn Hill won Makeup Tutorialist of the year at the 2019 Influencer Awards – an honor she said she was “ashamed” to receive.

Despite her seemingly genuine remorse over the matter, critics aren’t letting her live the scandal down, with many finding her Instagram posts performative and attention-seeking, even speculating that she could be ramping up to sell another product to fans.

“Whenever she posts emotional stuff, its ‘cause she’s about to sell something big,” one user wrote over Twitter. “She psychologically manipulates people a lot before a big drop. She does this days, weeks or a month before.”

“I mean, I’m glad she’s doing better mentally, but a large part of the backlash against her, and what added to her mental health struggles, wasn’t just the fact that the lipsticks were defective, but that she took zero responsibility or accountability for it,” another wrote.

While it’s clear that Hill has tried to remain positive, last year’s lipstick drama just isn’t going away despite her efforts to rise above a scandal that has become synonymous with her image.
