Popular fitness model Sommer Ray and TikTok star Tayler Holder were spotted together after rumors started flying that they had apparently broken up after unfollowing each other on Instagram.

TikTok has created a whole new wave of stars, and as they gain popularity, fans want to know what they’re doing away from the quick videos. In the case of Tayler Holder, fans have desperate to get the ins and outs of his relationships.

In recent weeks, he’s created a whole host of TikToks alongside model Sommer Ray, with Bryce Hall even adding to the speculation that they were romantically involved. Though, following talk of a break-up as they apparently unfollowed each on Instagram and deleted a number of TikToks, the pair were spotted together once again.

Sommer has built up a huge online following on Instagram, while Holder’s main audience is on TikTok.

They were caught together in Beverly Hills by The Hollywood Fix, who immediately quizzed Sommer and Tayler on their relationship. “We’re just friends man,” Tayler said, before Sommer chimed in with “friendship goals.”

The pair brushed off suggestions of a collective name for their supposed relationship, and joked that if they were to release merch together, they’d only go as far as dropping friendship bracelets. “Bestie merch,” Sommer added as the pair laughed about what they’d just been asked. 

Obviously, for some fans, seeing the pair together again will no doubt reignite talk that their summer sling is back on. Though, Sommer and Tayler were pretty steadfast in the answers that they are only friends.

Whether or not they will continue being cryptic about things, very much remains to be seen. Though, fans will be keeping their eyes peeled for any sort of hint about them confirming they’re back together – be it a new TikTok, a refollow on Instagram, or a few less vague posts on social media. Everyone will just have to wait and see what unfolds.


TikTok dominates Forbes 30 under 30 list: Addison Rae, D’Amelio’s, more

A handful of TikTok stars including Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, as well as Addison Rae and Loren Gray have been named in Forbes’ 2021 edition of the social media 30 under 30.

With TikTok blowing up similarly to Vine, plenty of creators have become stars – taking their TikTok following and doing something else, be it starting a YouTube channel or launching a music career. 

However, some have become household names, creating their own brands and linking up with hugely successful companies for collaborations – see Charli D’Amelio dominating in the advertising space and creating their own products with Sabra and Dunkin’ Donuts respectively. 

Each year, success like this is recognized by Forbes and their 30 Under 30 list, which highlights rising stars in a long line of spaces – and it should come as no surprise that a number of TikTok stars have made the cut this year.

Charli and Dixie have seen unrivalled success on TikTok.

TikTokers on Forbes’ 2021 30 Under 30 list

The American business magazine released their 2021 list for the 30 Under 30 on December 1, with the D’Amelio sisters – Charli and Dixie – making up one of the seven spots claimed by TikTokers. 

Both Addison Rae and Loren Gray also made the cut, which should come as no surprise saying as they’re both still inside the top five most-followed TikTok accounts. 

Additionally, Avanni Greg, Spencer Polanco, Michael Le & Michael Uy, and Jalaiah Harmon – the originator of the Renegade dance – also make the cut. Though, the latter is named as a ‘dancer’ despite her following on the app.

TikTokers made up nearly a quarter of this years list.

David Dobrik is also listed as a TikToker – which might cause a few fans to scratch their heads and question it – seeing as he had plenty of prior success on YouTuber. 

Either way, though, with nearly a quarter of the list being taken over by TikTok stars, it shows how far the app has come, and just how far some creators can go if they manage to build up a big enough following. 

It’ll be interesting to see if anyone else can replicate their success next year, or if these TikTokers are the main trendsetters.
