A few small social media updates have set the internet ablaze, as rumors surrounding the breakup of TikTok celebrities Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johhnson continue to mount up.

One of the powerhouse TikTok couples may finally be going their separate ways, if new rumors are to be believed. While D’Amelio recently shut down reports of Johnson’s infidelity, it seems like there’s now a bigger divide in the relationship than ever before.

While the couple followed one another across all social media accounts and frequently collaborated, that has now come to an end, for the time being. On July 30, D’Amelio unfollowed Johnson on both Twitter and Instagram.

Naturally, this led avid fans to speculate on the status of their relationship. While nothing is official, and may not be for some time, the writing is certainly on the wall for the end of this TikTok relationship.

Shortly after D’Amelio removed her long-time partner from her following list, Johnson updated one platform in particular as well. He changed his Twitter header from a picture of the couple to a photo of him and his friends.

While this may be considered a prank any other day of the week, recent cheating allegations paint these changes in a different light. Moreover, a fellow TikTok personality exposed Johnson for reaching out to her while still with D’Amelio.

Madison Galley shared a video on July 30 that highlighted numerous attempts from Johnson to connect with her. “Keep watching if you want to see me expose Griffin Johnson,” she captioned in the video. From Instagram to Snapchat, he sent multiple messages while still supposedly committed to D’Amelio. Even one explicitly stating that he was “single.”

D’Amelio saw this post, presumably began a dialogue with Galley, and soon unfollowed Johnson across social media.

As official statements are yet to come out from either internet personality, take this information with a grain of salt. There’s a chance this could be resolved behind closed doors after all. For the time being, however, the relationship appears to be on thin ice.

Charli D’Amelio slams “out of control” hate from 100m followers scandal

TikTok star Charli D’Amelio is hitting back at the intense criticism she received after joking about not reaching 100 million followers in a year, as well as the hate that followed her tearful Instagram Live on the subject.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s most-followed content creator. Now boasting over 101 million followers, Charli has become the poster girl for the viral video application — but not everyone is a fan of the internet superstar.

The 16-year-old influencer got hit with an avalanche of negativity upon the release of a “Dinner with the D’Amelio’s” episode on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly bemoan not reaching 100 million followers in a year’s time.

The issue quickly erupted into a scandal, with users calling out Charli for purportedly only seeing her fans as “numbers” and being ungrateful for her privileged position as a celebrity.

The hate soon spun into a hurricane of vile comments, with D’Amelio even revealing she’d been sent death threats from angry viewers during a tearful Instagram live addressing the situation. She even lost 1 million followers over the ordeal.

She has discussed the matter yet again in a solo December 3 episode of her ‘2 Chix’ podcast sans sister Dixie D’Amelio, hitting back at the shocking amount of hate she received over the scandal.

“The thing that I think happened was, it spiraled completely out of control,” she said of the situation. “It turned into a place where I was getting threats for my life. When talking about this on Live, I got emotional, because that’s not something that people take lightly.”

“I feel like people really have to understand that yes, I do have a substantial amount of people that follow me on social media,” she continued. “That does not mean that I am not a person. …The entire situation was taken completely out of proportion by lots of people.”

“I know I’m not a disrespectful person. I know that I’m not a genuinely horrible person. I know I’m a good person, at the end of the day. Whether or not everyone agrees with that is for them to figure out, and that’s totally fine.”

Charli’s podcast shines a light on the growing negativity from social media platforms like TikTok, which even bullied the likes of Taio Cruz off the website within just a few days of him creating an account.

This situation serves as an important reminder to remember that no matter the circumstances, there’s always another person behind your phone screen who your words are directly affecting — 100 million followers or not.
