Oh, what tangled webs we weave when first we attempt to nail down the love lives of social media celebrities. We’ve entered a new era in the celebrity world.

No longer is it sufficient to stay up-to-date on the comings and goings of movie stars and musicians. There’s a whole new crop of celebrities making their way into hearts and minds through viral videos on platforms like YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok.

Eventually, many of these social media stars make the leap into more mainstream celebrity platforms, but those who want to stay in the know can tie themselves in knots trying to figure out the connections between these fast-rising stars and the celebrities in their orbit. 

That’s why the speculation about TikTok star Bella Poarch’s new boyfriend is so interesting.

Bella Poarch is a TikTok sensation

TikTok is a relative newcomer in the social media platform world, but it has quickly taken off as one of the most popular and creative outlets around. Brought into the mainstream through its use as a political platform — much to the chagrin of frequent target Donald Trump — TikTok is a Chinese-owned platform that initially focused on dance videos and lip-syncing.

The fun, quick, and easy sharing app has been especially popular with teens, and now there is enough influence on TikTok that individuals with the most trafficked accounts are becoming famous in their own right. 

Sixteen-year-old Charli D’Amelio has been the poster child for viral TikTok success. Her extremely popular videos have landed her several endorsement deals and a net worth of $4 million.

D’Amelio may be on her way to losing the TikTok throne, however. Bella Poarch’s videos have grown even more popular. The TikTok user currently has over 36 million followers who tune in to see her short dance videos and silly faces. 

Who is Bella Poarch?

Charli D’Amelio Is Currently the Queen of TikTok But Another Viral Sensation Could Be Dethroning Her Soon

Poarch is so new to the scene that not a lot has been confirmed about who she is. It has been reported that she was born in the Philippines but likely has American citizenship and has allegedly served in the U.S. Navy. We don’t even know her age for sure.

Some people have reported her to be 19 while others say she is 23. Sleuthing fans also suspect her real name might be Taylor Nairee because that name used to show up in her Facebook URL, and a picture of her in uniform from 2018 says “Taylor” on it. 

Poarch has only been in the public eye for a couple of months, so it’s likely that more concrete details about her will be coming out if her star continues to rise — and it looks like she is definitely on a path to further fame. 

Is Bella Poarch single?

According to PopBuzz, Poarch isn’t dating anyone. Of course, when we can’t even confirm her real name and age, that might not be a particularly accurate account.

That said, rumors are flying that she may be dating famous Kylie Jenner ex — Tyga. Heavy reports that the rumors started after the pair appeared in TikTok videos together.

While Tyga has been linked to numerous women since his breakup with Jenner, but there is no confirmation that Tyga and Poarch are in a relationship. Neither Tyga nor Porch has confirmed the alleged relationship.

It’s possible that the two social-media-savvy stars are linking arms — and maybe even fanning the flames of the rumors themselves — to boost their own fame, but it’s also possible that things got hot and heavy and just haven’t made their way to the public eye yet.
