Charli D’Amelio hits back at report that Addison Rae earns more on TikTok

A recent Forbes article found that TikTok’s highest-earning creator isn’t the platform’s most-followed user, Charli D’Amelio, but instead Addison Rae — but Charli might not be too jazzed about speculation around her pocketbook.

While it’s no secret that Charli is the queen of TikTok, Addison Rae is close behind in terms of follower-count; but she’s got the youngest D’Amelio sister beat when it comes to income, apparently.

According to an August 6 Forbes article, Rae raked in over $5 million last year in pre-taxed income, making her TikTok’s top-earning content creator in spite of her status as the app’s second-most followed channel.

Charli, however, isn’t too far behind, with Forbes estimating she earned over $4 million last year, followed by former TikTok queen Loren Gray at $2.6 million.

Despite her _ bank account, D’Amelio might not be too fond of the speculation surrounding her income, as told in a Tweet appearing to shade the Forbes article — or the entire situation, in general — on the same day.

“Why do people think they know how much money I make?” D’Amelio tweeted. “I don’t even know.”

Fans also speculated that Addison Rae may have spoken out on the matter, with the star tweeting, “So many people preach girls supporting girls until it’s someone they don’t like.”

However, Rae refuted that her tweet was shading the situation — but it seems that Charli isn’t here for the speculation.

While it’s highly likely that her parents are in charge of her finances, D’Amelio isn’t the first internet superstar to call out estimations of their income; YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg likewise took shots at “confusing” articles reporting about his supposed net worth earlier this year.

Claiming that certain outlets were “overvaluing” his income, Kjellberg said, “It’s just so crazy. I get that people want to know the exact number, so they are just going to make up a bunch of stuff.”

Forbes’ list follows the release of Charli and Dixie D’Amelio’s collaboration with makeup brand Morphe, as well as the release of Rae’s own ITEM Beauty line.


TikTok star Zoe Laverne under fire for allegedly kissing underage fan

TikTok star Zoe LaVerne is facing massive backlash after multiple videos surfaced of her allegedly kissing an underage fan. This comes days after leaked Instagram conversations from her ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt raised concerns of “very intense” interactions with an underage influencer.

A video on the ‘Def Noodles’ account featured a short clip showing the two. It was apparently only a short form of a much longer video showing more instances of the same behavior.

According to Def Noodles, LaVerne previously denied allegations of having a relationship with an underage person. This was in direct response to the allegations brought by Orlove’s hacked messages.

The video comes at a sensitive time for LaVerne, who was already getting heat for Orlove’s Instagram messages with VanPelt.

Zoe LaVerne once again removed herself from Instagram after the latest allegations.

In them, Orlove’s leaked exchange shows that he “left (LaVerne) because of her interactions with Connor. They got very intense and it’s something I do not stand by whatsoever. It’s p**dophillia.”

Another message, this time from Orlove to LaVerne, shows he cut communication from her. “My lawyers will handle the rest,” he said in reference to the “toxic” breakup between the two TikTok personalities.

LaVerne, who deleted her Instagram in mid-September in response to a separate lip-syncing debacle, once again removed herself from the Facebook-owned social platform.

In a private fandom account known to be run by LaVerne, she gave a message to her fans for her renewed hiatus from Instagram after the videos came out.

“Thank you for everything, really,” the account called ‘zlpfandom0.2’ wrote. “But for right now I don’t think I’ll be back on soial media again. I (still) have a lot to think about. I reall don’t wanna leave you guys but I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of crying and hurting. It’s nothing but negativity to me anymore. I love you so much.”

LaVerne has over 17 million followers on TikTok and nearly 450,000 subscribers on YouTube. She’s been featured in TikToks and videos with other online celebrities ranging from Terin Sottile and ex-boyfriend Zephan Clark.

If the move offline is permanent, it’s not known if LaVerne will publicly respond to the latest videos that are surfacing.
