After TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio ended her last relationship, fans of the eldest D’Amelio sister were keen to see her with somebody new. Rumors began to circulate about her and Sway House star Noah Beck, and after the steamy teaser for her new music video, people are more curious than ever. Here’s everything you need to know.
Dixie and Griffin Johnson break up – June 2020
As a TikTok star with nearly 40 million followers, Dixie has attracted a huge amount of attention on the app along with 90 million follower sister Charli.
Dixie and Griffin’s relationship grounded to a halt after cheating allegations
The rumors started gaining traction in June 2020 when Dixie posted a picture of the pair cuddled up together. Yet the happiness quickly evaporated when Chase Hudson publicly accused Griffin of cheating on Dixie, and any chance of the relationship progressing was stunted.

Fans noticed they’d been hanging out with each other more and more, and the pair were even captured by paparazzi getting up close and personal with each other, which some took as practical confirmation that they were more than friends.
Dixie and Noah deny rumors – September 2020
Despite major signs that appeared to give the impression the two were in a relationship, or at least testing the waters, the pair denied any involvement with each other in a romantic sense in early September when speaking to paparazzi.
The Noah told the Hollywood Fix that they were “just best friends, just good friends” which dashed the hopes of many that they would go on to confirm they were dating.

When the same reporter told Dixie that fans had apparently given her “the green light” to date after breaking up with Griffin, she calmly replied “no, I’m okay” and suggested she was still sticking to what the reporter described as a “no TikTok boys” rule.
Dixie’s music video teaser is released – September 2020
While the pair shutting down relationship rumors appeared to draw a line under people’s previous theories, they sparked conversation all over again when Dixie released a behind the scenes teaser of a music video for the remix of her song “Be Happy.”
The video showed Noah and Dixie in an affectionate beach getaway as part of the video, cuddling up next to each other in the sand for the perfect cinematic shot.
Dixie’s team left the most exciting part for the very end of the video, however, showing the two stars leaning in for a kiss. Fans were convinced that that was the sign that “she’s definitely dating Noah now” and that they “cannot be just friends.”
But without any actual real life confirmation of their relationship, fans are going crazy trying to figure out what it could all mean. Perhaps the eventual release of Dixie’s music video will shed some light on the slightly mixed messages.
This week has been a wild ride in all respects: From none other than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez playing Among Us with top streamers on Twitch to PewDiePie’s YouTube channel getting temporarily shadowbanned, there’s no shortage of things to talk about when it comes to internet drama, and we’ve got all the details you need to stay updated on the tea.
So… what’s brewing?
AOC plays Among Us with Pokimane, Hasan & more
AOC had a massive start on her first-ever Twitch stream, where she played Among Us with such stars as Pokimane, Hasan Parker and Dr Lupo.
Who’s involved? United States representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — commonly referred to as AOC — took to Twitter on October 19 to announce her very first Twitch stream. As for the game she wanted to play? Viral multiplayer title ‘Among Us,’ for which she got a ton of offers from super-popular streamers to play with her.
What’s the tea? Well, it’s not so much tea as it is a record-breaking broadcast, as AOC’s stream managed to rake in 4.6 million views in the eight hours after it ended. Featuring such names as Pokimane, Hasan Piker and DrLupo, it stands to reason that such a star-studded affair was a huge event for the platform, and viewers flocked to give it a watch as soon as possible.
Although the entire affair boasted a wealth of hilarious moments, her broadcast served as a reminder to ‘Get Out the Vote,’ encouraging US viewers to exercise their rights as citizens in the upcoming presidential election — managing to score 439,000 viewers while she was live.
What’s the tea? Footage from the altercation went viral across the net, showing Hall and his friends getting physical with restaurant staff. According to initial reports from TMZ, Hall had been asked to put away his vape pen and was later encouraged to leave, which resulted in the ensuing fight.
However, Hall later claimed that the restaurant manager had put hands on him first, after he’d unsuccessfully asked for his credit card back “10 times.” Things escalated when a friend tried to break up the situation, leading to the fight seen in the video.
This fight comes after an earlier scuffle Hall was involved in with a bystander at another Los Angeles-based restaurant a few weeks prior, which luckily ended in hugs all around.
What’s the tea? Despite being a massive presence on the website — on which he recently signed to exclusively stream — his channel failed to show up via YouTube’s search function on October 22, with fans noticing that his latest video only received 45k views hours after going live — a major dip for someone with so many dedicated viewers.
The YouTuber’s channel appeared to not be showing up in searches.
PewDiePie was quick to address the issue in a Community post, writing: “Yo, for some reason my videos aren’t showing up in sub box since yesterday so posting here.”
The Swedish star stated that his channel has not been working properly since October 21.
YouTube also made an official statement on the matter claiming that they were looking into the situation, which was later revealed to be a glitch in the system. Thankfully, PewDiePie’s channel is back up and running as usual, going to show that no one is above the platform’s idiosyncrasies.
What’s the tea? During an October 15 episode of her ‘2 Chix’ podcast with sister Charli, Dixie revealed that her hair is falling out, after receiving extensions from popular TikTok hair stylist ‘Hair by Chrissy.’ Although she made sure not to name the stylist in question, the salon posted before and after photos from Dixie’s appointment, leading many fans to connect the dots in short time.

“I don’t know if my hair is falling out, but I think it’s falling out from them,” she admitted. “So I’m like, kinda scared. I’m losing hair, but it’s connected to the extension… there’s like white pieces all at the end of each piece of hair.”
Needless to say, Hair by Chrissy has come under intense scrutiny from critics, with the salon having also faced backlash for alleged discriminatory practices and a flagrant disobedience of health and safety protocols in wake of the current health crisis.
“So, we cancelled all the shows,” Joe stated. “We’re happy he has a mild case, but we cancelled all the shows. I’m keeping away from everybody and testing myself and the staff everyday until we’re in the clear, there’s nothing we can do. I won’t know when we’ll do them [podcasts] again until we get a clear from the doctor. I think it’s ten days and three negative test results in a row.”
However, it looks like fans are getting their fix anyway, as Rogan announced that the podcast with Kanye West is airing, after all. The episode is set for October 24 a 12 PM Central Daylight Time.
There’s no denying that a lot has gone down in the past six days. What do you think of Bryce Hall’s latest fight at a restaurant? Do you believe his side of the story, or the manager’s? How do you feel about politicians taking to Twitch to encourage citizens to vote? Do you think Hair by Chrissy should be receiving all the backlash after Dixie’s hair troubles?
