The 15-year-old Charli D’Amelio is already a top internet celebrity, gaining over 38 million followers on TikTok — but the youngster revealed that fame isn’t all sunshine and roses.

Charli was featured in a collaboration with YouTube star and James Charles on March 20, as the makeup mogul gave the TikToker a colorful makeover while asking a series of questions about her rise to fame.

One of Charles’ questions was about her transition from normal student to becoming an internet superstar — and Charli’s answer was surprisingly harrowing.

Charli D’Amelio is one of TikTok’s top content creators – but her fast track to fame came with some surprising consequences.

The TikTok creator admitted that she experienced a slew of unique difficulties after going viral, explaining that critics will accuse her of bad behavior or claim that she stopped talking to them once she became famous.

“Some people will try and go live and try to talk bad about me,” she revealed. “Try to make me look like a person I’m not, in a bad way.”

It’s weird seeing how people switch up. Or people will say, ‘You cut me off, you stopped talking to me.’ We haven’t been friends for four years!”

That’s not the most concerning consequence of her fame either; D’Amelio also revealed the shocking lengths fans will go to in order to meet her, claiming that they will even follow her into the bathroom to get a photo.

“I’ve had people come in the bathroom with me, like try to get in the stall with me,” she continued. “…people post things, and then everyone comes to wherever I am.”

The star also revealed that a few fans pretended to members of her family to get a chance of seeing her at her cousin’s wedding, and was even yelled at by a fan’s mother to the point of tears after asking to eat her meal before snapping a photo.

“That’s just like, annoying, because there are some things where I want my privacy,” she admitted. “It was my cousin’s wedding with my family, That was like, really, really weird.”

While D’Amelio is on the fast track to become TikTok’s most-followed account, her extremely quick jump to internet fame came with some unintended consequences from fans who don’t respect personal boundaries.

TikTok’s hottest couple, Addison Rae and Bryce Hall, have sparked rumors that they might be getting engaged after Addison flexed a flashy ring on Instagram.

Bryce and Addison — affectionately referred to as ‘Braddison’ by shippers — are two of TikTok’s most popular content creators, who were long rumored to be secretly dating despite their repeated denial to the contrary.

However, on November 30, the two finally confirmed that they are officially dating, and have been together for nearly two months (although they did break up earlier this year after just three days together).

Since their surprise announcement, they haven’t held back with their lovey-dovey social media posts about each other, complete with cuddly, PDA-filled TikToks. And of course, while both creators are still so young, fans of the couple are eager for more content – especially if they decide to tie the knot in the future.

On Thursday, January 14, Addison was spotted by paparazzi leaving XIV Karats LTD jewelry store in Beverly Hills – and  later on, posted a picture of a new sparkly ring on her ring finger to her Instagram story, leaving fans in a frenzy over what it might mean.

Typically, an engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand, and with the way the picture was taken, it does look like it’s on her left hand.

However, while it has prompted speculation that the pair are or could potentially be getting engaged, discussion on drama Instagram account TikTokroom heavily suggests that the pair are getting each other promise rings, instead.

This is something that several famous TikTok couples have done to show their commitment to each other, including Cynthia Parker and Quinton Griggs, as well as Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon, so it wouldn’t be so surprising if this is the case.

Either way, Bryce and Addison are clearly about as lovey-dovey as they could possibly be at this point, and engagement ring or not, the pair look like they’re in it for the long-haul.
