TikTok star Josh Richards finally confirmed his relationship with Dixie D’Amelio, admitting that he “hooked up” with the eldest D’Amelio sister.

Dixie D’Amelio is one of TikTok’s most-followed creators. The big sister of Charli D’Amelio, Dixie has somewhat transitioned from her status as an internet star to break into the music biz.

As one of TikTok’s top stars, her relationship status is of great interest to her 56.9 million followers — so when she broke things off with long-term boyfriend Noah Beck, fans were curious to see what was next for her love life.

It wasn’t long before rumors began circulating that she might have been involved with fellow TikTok star Josh Richards, a prominent creator and co-host of Barstool’s BFFs podcast.

This pairing was an unexpected one, leading to mixed reactions from fans who speculated that Noah Beck wasn’t happy about the situation either, owing to his activity on social media at the time.

Dixie and Josh were spotted hanging out together on several occasions, most notably sparking romance rumors after they attended the Super Bowl alongside Charli and Landon Barker for what appeared to be a double date.

Josh, however, shot down these rumors in an interview, saying he and Dixie were “just friends.” But months later, it seems he’s changed his tune, as told in a recent episode of the BFFs podcast.

“I’m pretty sure that’s been said millions of times, no?” Josh retorted. The trio went back and forth for some time before coming to the conclusion that Josh had, at some point, confirmed that he and Dixie had gotten involved.

“Alright so, headline: Josh and Bri confirm that Josh was hooking up with Dixie back around the Super Bowl,” Portnoy posed.
