At the end of September, TikTok star Tayler Holder confirmed that he was moving out of the Hype House, and now he’s given his reasons why and hinted at some major moves he might be making in the future.

The Hype House has been arguably the most popular content house on TikTok, once home to huge names such as sisters Dixie and Charli D’Amelio, Addison Rae and Alex Warren.

That said, there comes a point where the House’s stars have to move on, and Holder confirmed he is the next to leave the house, though he did explain that he would remain as part of the collective, just not living directly with them.

Now, Tayler has explained why he had to move out of the house and do something different in a new YouTube video posted to his channel.

The Hype House is currently based in LA, but Holder has officially left.

After joking about fights with Thomas Petrou and other members of the Hype House, Tayler explained that the actual problem with the house was much more trivial.

“The real reason I left the house… I personally had a few issues with where I was staying in the house,” he said. “We were living in the guest house side, and the AC would go out every other day, the WiFi wouldn’t reach there so I couldn’t even work. I couldn’t do anything.”

Holder also frequently reiterated that he had no issue with anybody in the house and it was nobody’s fault in particular — though he did hint that he has even bigger plans going forward.

Creating a content compound

Tayler went on to explain that he actually has a bigger dream of creating a content “compound” — literally a big compound where he and his peers can go to create their videos and work out of.

This gives more context to an Instagram post Holder posted on October 4, with pictures of a ‘Triller Compound,’ Triller being one of TikTok’s biggest direct competitors.

Tayler wants it to be clear that this isn’t supposed to be just a new content house; it’s just a house that people can turn up at, collaborate on content and come and go as they please.

It’ll be interesting to see more of the compound going forward, with a tour video promised by Tayler, and from what little we’ve seen of it, it looks incredible. What comes of the compound, though, remains to be seen.


TikToker Nessa Barrett slams TalentX’s Michael Gruen: “He hates me”

Nessa Barrett has slammed TalentX manager Micheal Gruen in the third installment of Josh Richards and Dave Portnoy’s new podcast BFFs in which they talk about all things TikTok drama.

The first episode of the podcast sent fans into a frenzy after the Barstool Sports’ president claimed that Nessa Barrett had found her fame through dating Josh Richards. The host claimed he was “in the middle of a TikTok war” and fuelled drama by tweeting memes and jokes about the situation.

But for their third episode, they actually invited Nessa herself onto the show, and while there appeared to be no beef between Dave and the popular TikToker, it was revealed that the manager of TalentX Michael Gruen and Nessa are feuding.

Fans of Nessa will know that the pair don’t necessarily like each other. After the drama surrounding the first episode, Michael weighed in with his own opinion on an Instagram fan page for the star.

He wrote, “I must’ve missed the memo that Nessa – or anyone for that matter – deserves ‘the world’. The earth is inhabited by ~7B people…last I checked Nessa is just one of them (along with myself and everyone else).” Nessa did not publicly reply but she did unfollow him on Instagram.

It turns out that their beef runs a little deeper. After remaining quite held back with her answers for the first half of the podcast, Nessa suddenly had words to say once Micheal was mentioned by Dave.

(Topic starts at 27:00)

She said, “I do not like him. He’s rude. He hates me. He has it out for me. I think he’s jealous because he’s secretly in love with Josh which is no problem but yeah he has called me ugly to my face and in front of people”

Josh attempted to defend Michael, and said that the word “Ugly” wasn’t used, but instead that “he said my taste in women was not good.”

Nessa continued, “He has said like the beginning of quarantine that he wants to send me on a one-way ticket to Mexico and I’ve been sat there alone and I was 17 like he is just rude…I just don’t waste my energy on him I just don’t like him he’s a terrible person” She also added and emphasized that “he is a certified a**hole.”

Michael is yet to react to Nessa’s brutal takedown, but given his reputation, he is likely to respond very soon.
