Addison Rae responds to the Charli D'Amelio Drama
TikTok stars are no strangers to drama and two of the platform's biggest creators Charli D'Amelio & Addison Rae recently found themselves in the middle of a personal controversy.
The timeline is simple. Back in November, before Rae had met and forged friendships with either of the D’Amelio sisters, the popular TikTok star had liked certain comments that questioned Charli’s popularity against Rae’s.
With these liked comments recently coming to light, the star's older sister, Dixie, came to her defense and called out haters for their “jealousy.”
Fans accused Rae of being jealous of D'Amelio's success (she's still the most followed person on TikTok)
Per Rae’s explanation, she was in a very toxic phase of her life following the ending of “an extremely toxic and mentally abusive relationship that tore my heart to shreds,” and this led to her desperately seeking validation at the expense of more successful stars—of which the app has only really had one: Charli.
Rae was clear that she regrets her actions, and doesn’t think the context should excuse them, but most importantly that it’s the 16-year-old's choice if she’d like to forgive her.
On Charli's end, she seems unbothered by all the drama as per her tweet.

We're probably not going to see these two hanging out anytime soon but at least the air seems to be clearer than it was before.
