Two of TikTok’s biggest stars, Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson, have been in a relationship since 2019, but Lil Huddy has now confirmed that they’ve split, after weeks of rumor and speculation.
The pair had been coy about their relationship to start, but soon made it public knowledge on social media, becoming the first TikTok power-couple.
There was bound to be drama though, after fellow TikTokker Josh Richards accused Hudson of trying to DM his girlfriend Nessa Barrett, and released a diss track all about it.
The diss track sparked controversy, suggesting Chase had been cheating on Charli, but the two remained rather quiet about the whole situation, and Richards said he was “dropping the beef.” Charli’s mom, Heidi, did speak out on the rumors though.
But, on April 14, D’Amelio posted to her Instagram story to confirm they had broken up, explaining that they had decided it was “best for both of us.”
“I truly have so much love for Chase and wish nothing but the best for him,” D’Amelio said in her story. “I’m sorry I waited so long to tell you all. I wanted to take the time to process it for myself. Breakups are tough for everyone, so I’d really rather not talk about it anymore.”
Shortly after Charli’s post, Chase posted on his own Instagram too, to give his side.
“Charli is such an amazing person, and I am so beyond grateful and blessed to have spent the time I spent with her. We will always be friends and she will always hold a special place in my heart for the rest of my life,” he said.
He too asked for privacy as they “start this new chapter”, and apologized that they waiting so long to tell their fans.
It’s clear that the ex-couple prepared and agreed what to say before sending out the joint statement on their accounts, as the message was almost identical in each.
There are still many unanswered questions though, that will be burning in the minds of fans. Not least whether the allegations that Chase was unfaithful played any part in their breakup, but also how their relationship will now be in the Hype House together.
Both Charli and Chase are two of the leading members of the Hype House, the collaborative content house full of TikTok stars. They have filmed countless TikToks together there, but it looks like there won’t be any more for some time at least.
Though, it’s unlikely fans will get answers to these questions any time soon, as both Charli and Chase seem determined to avoid any further discussion or drama around their split.
