Fans have a new theory that YouTube superstar David Dobrik and TikTok star Addison Rae are dating, and the pair are happy to feed into the speculation.
David Dobrik is one of YouTube’s biggest names, with millions of fans tuning into his vlogs, and there is always relationship rumors swirling. One of the narratives within those vlogs is that David is dating his long-time assistant, Natalie Mariduena.
Despite having squashed the rumors on multiple occasions in their vlogs, Natalie is constantly rumored to be the 23-year-old’s girlfriend. Best friends since high school, the pair’s chemistry in Dobrik’s vlogs is undeniable, but now it appears Addison Rae has been thrown into the rumor mill by those keeping close tabs on his antics.
Yet even with the evidence seemingly pointing towards a potential Dobrik and Mariduena relationship, some fans think Addison Rae could well be the forerunner to stealing David’s heart.
Addison and David had been spotted spending a lot more time together prior, and even now in lockdown, are making TikTok's together, while still observing social distancing.
It wasn’t just public appearances that spiraled the gossip into more than just hearsay, as both Dobrik and Rae continued to create content beyond the bounds set by the current situation, as the TikToker posted a clip where the YouTuber makes a virtual guest appearance on her MacBook.

Although it was Addison’s TikTok caption that really got fans talking, as she wrote: “he’s so sexy @daviddobrik” — which of course had plenty of fans in a frenzy in the comments.
But while there seems to be a number of signals suggesting that the pair are getting a little cosy, they could also be just getting more comfortable as friends — especially since Rae reportedly signed with Dobrik’s manager.
Although it's worth noting that the TikTok star was also previously linked with Bryce Hall, which was swiftly quashed as she told Entertainment Tonight that they’re both better off as friends “for now.” So until you hear it from either party, it's worth taking these rumors with a pinch of salt.
