Charli D’Amelio has built a following of over 46 million fans on TikTok from her dancing videos.

Despite being seen as the face of TikTok for quite some time, Charli only surpassed fellow creator Loren Gray in follower count on March 25 and revealed how she reacted to the news in an interview with ET.

To the surprise of many, she revealed that, although she normally celebrates her biggest milestones, she had not yet taken the time to reflect on officially becoming the biggest TikTok star.

“We celebrate almost every milestone that I hit pretty well but I don’t think we celebrated number one,” she shared.

She then revealed her reasoning for the lack of celebration, explaining that she was not even aware of when it happened, “I think I was sleeping when it happened, it literally must have happened at like four in the morning.”

As it stands Charli D’Amelio remains at the top of TikTok with over 46 million followers and has been trying to use her platform for good.

“It feels awesome, but I think it’s truly about just being able to have the platform that I have to spread messages like this,” she added when asked about her newly found influence.

Following her latest achievement, Charli has released a new dance encouraging all of her fans to stick to the social distancing guidelines during the ongoing health crisis.

Charli is also set to be the first creator on TikTok to reach the 50 million milestone, and with the rate that her fanbase is growing, it is quite likely to happen within the coming days.

Thomas Petrou slams Bryce Hall’s accusations of stealing from Hype House

TikTok stars Thomas Petrou and Bryce Hall have sparked quite the feud after Hall accused Petrou — co-founder of the Hype House — of stealing money from his own content creators.

It’s no secret that the Hype House and the Sway House aren’t on friendly terms, with the two getting into a fierce beef throughout this past year (remember that time the Sway boys drove to the Hype House to confront Chase Hudson?).

While Hall has confirmed that their feud with the Hype House is definitely real, it seems that he’s going “full send” on his distaste for the group by accusing co-founder Thomas Petrou of outright stealing money from the HH’s content creators.

During an interview with Tom Ward on October 8, Hall made some serious claims about Petrou’s business practices, stating that he’d “stolen” money from the TikTokers working underneath the content collective.

“I’ll say it — he steals money,” Hall stated. “He steals money from those kids. These kids are — I love a lot of people in the Hype House, but they are not the smartest people. …maybe not now, because I haven’t talked to them in four or five months, and maybe somebody said something to him, but he, at the beginning, was stealing money for sure.”

Hall’s claims didn’t go unnoticed; Petrou responded to the accusations shortly thereafter, denying having ever stolen money from those in the Hype House in a pointed Instagram reply on a tea page.

“That’s a complete lie,” he wrote. “I’ve never taken a percentage of anyone in the Hype House. Ask everyone who’s a part of it. The whole reason I started this was to help the people around me make sure they weren’t getting taken advantage of by their managers and agents.”

Thomas Petrou denies Bryce Hall's allegations of stealing money from Hype House creators.

This isn’t the first time Hall has struck out at Petrou in recent days, either; the Sway House TikToker also slammed Thomas’s spending habits, claiming that he “spends his money like an idiot” on pricey cars instead of saving up wisely.

For now, it doesn’t look like there’s any love lost between these two social media stars as things continue to escalate between two of TikTok’s biggest creators.
