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.

Twitch streamer mortified after showing his embarrassing search history

A small Twitch streamer was left embarrassed out of his mind after he accidentally revealed his search history during a recent broadcast.

Anyone who has ever streamed on Twitch is probably aware of how easy it can be to leak personal information. Direct messages, emails, files – anything on your computer screen can potentially be seen if you’re not careful.

While most experienced streamers take precautions to prevent sensitive content from being broadcast to the masses, others have to learn the hard way. Such was the case with ‘TisParker’ who revealed some awkward search history.

During a January 19 broadcast, the 20-year-old streamer clicked on the search bar in his web browser before taking a sip of his caffeinated beverage and cleaning his glasses.

Your search history is showing!

As this was going on, the seemingly oblivious streamer didn’t realize his search history was showing up, with the first query being “can you have sex in your car without breaking the law.”

The embarrassing search was spotted by viewers in TisParker’s chat who alerted the streamer.

“Search history, Parker!” he read before realizing what he had done.

He let out a soft gasp, closed the tab, and covered his mouth, clearly mortified by what he had allowed everyone watching to see.

For his part, however, the streamer was a good sport and laughed at his own misfortune. “MonkaS,” he said, referencing the sweaty pepe emote. “This is why we don’t Google stuff.”

Unfortunately, Parker deleted the rest of the VOD so we don’t know what else he had to say about revealing the search history, but judging by his reaction, he will be extra careful from this point on.

Of course, he is hardly the first streamer to show of their search history on stream. As Dexerto previously reported, Overwatch streamer ToxikLlama accidentally showed some awkward YouTube anime searches.

Given the content of both searches, it’s safe to say that although Parker’s was awkward, it could have been a lot worse. Just something to keep in mind for any aspiring streamers out there.
