TikTok stars Nessa Barrett and Josh Richards have been pulling a “Braddison” on their fans for some time now — and things are getting even more confusing, after Richards apparently admitted they’re dating, much to Nessa’s surprise.

For those out of the loop of social media drama, TikTok seems to have a string of high-profile couples taking over the viral video app, many of whom are trying (or have unsuccessfully tried) to keep their relationships under wraps.

Much like the on-again, off-again status of Bryce Hall and Addison Rae’s confusing romance over the past year, stars Nessa Barrett and Josh Richards have also bewildered their fans with a similar pseudo-relationship status.

After breaking up this summer, it seems that the TikTokers have started to get cozy once again, appearing in each other’s social media posts and seeming to be on good terms.

However, Josh Richards may have dropped some knowledge on both their fans and Nessa herself, after seeming to confirm that they are currently dating during his BFFs podcast with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy.

“That’s his girlfriend,” Portnoy said of the situation.

“Yeah, that’s why she was on the show,” Josh explained.

It seems that Nessa, though, was not aware of this development, as evidenced by a comment she made of Portnoy’s TikTok on the entire fiasco.

“Weird,” she wrote. “I didn’t even know myself?”

Needless to say, it seems that this news is shaking up the TikTok world, with many commenters claiming the ordeal is “embarrassing” for Richards.

“Not Josh getting friend zoned,” one user wrote.

“I’m sorry, but Nessa deserves WAY better than this boy,” another said.

Still, it does seem like the ex-couple has grown close to each other, with Richards also joking that he had “competition” after Nessa came out as bisexual earlier this month. In fact, Richards said that he’d known about her orientation for some time, but kept it to himself until she was ready to talk about it.

That just makes this latest development even more confusing, and fans are on the edges of their seats to see what comes next.


James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
