The TikTok world is buzzing after the breakup announcement of the famous teen couple, Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson.
According to reports, D’Amelio, 15, and Hudson, 17, both posted in their respective Instagram stories to let their followers know that they are “no longer together.”
It’s a typical teenage breakup but as two of the most-followed people on the Chinese video-sharing social networking service, the spread of their short-lived romance is inevitable.
In D’Amelio’s post, she said that she is hurting but she believes that their decision to split up is what’s best for both of them. She also mentioned that though they have parted ways, she still considers him a close friend.
She then ended her post by describing how tough breakups are and that she’d rather not talk about it anymore.
Meanwhile, in Hudson’s post, which is noticeably similar to D’Amelio’s, he said that it took them a while to reveal the real status of their relationship because they wanted to process things privately first.
He then requested the people to respect their privacy as they move forward with their own lives.
Alleged cheating scandal
The two TikTok celebrities never shared the reason for their split but sources say that it may have something to do with a cheating scandal.
According to Seventeen, Hudson, who is also known as Lil Huddy, sent fellow TikToker Nessa Barret inappropriate messages and pictures of himself. Barret, who is in a relationship, was quick to let her boyfriend know which led to a big mess in the Internet universe.
Hudson neither confirmed nor denied the allegations but with such issues going on, his relationship with the reigning “TikTok queen” was bound to go down.
D’Amelio, who has around 48 million followers on TikTok, first collaborated with Lil Huddy in November 2019. By December, rumors started that the two were dating.
In January 2020, D’Amelio denied being in a relationship but sweet pics of her and Lil Huddy were on Instagram.
On Valentine’s Day, the two made it official to the public by sharing a kissing photo and Lil Huddy calling D’Amelio “munchkin.” Around the same time, Lil Huddy revealed in an interview that they were exclusively dating but didn’t “want to put a label on it yet.”
It was in March when Lil Huddy’s alleged cheating scandal blew up. Fans were already curious about their status but it was only last April 13 when they finally revealed that their love story is over.
Both D’Amelio and Hudson are famous for their dance and creative videos on TikTok.
