Addison Rae Easterling (born October 6, 2000) is a social media celebrity, dancer, actress, and singer from the United States. In July 2019, she began actively posting content on TikTok, where her dancing videos quickly gained popularity. She had over 81 million followers on TikTok as of July 3, 2021, making her the third most-followed person on the platform after Charli D’Amelio and Khaby Lame.
Rae was crowned the highest-earning TikTok star by Forbes in August 2020. In March 2021, she released her debut single, “Obsessed,” and on August 27, 2021, she made her acting debut in He’s All That, a gender switched remake of the 1999 film released by Netflix.
Through different social media posts in October 2020, Addison Rae announced her relationship with TikToker Bryce Hall. They did, however, split up the next year.
Rae has also been quite close to the Kardashian family, particularly Kourtney Kardashian, since David Dobrik invited her to surprise Mason Disick, Kourtney’s kid, in March 2020. They are now frequently seen together, and Rae is frequently seen at Kardashian-Jenner gatherings.
Addison Rae stood up from her seat during a UFC fight in July 2021 to welcome former President Donald Trump, sparking speculation that she supported him. She did not respond to questions about her support for the former President, adding to the conjecture. BuzzFeed investigated her liked tweets and discovered that she liked multiple tweets supporting Trump in 2016, including one encouraging people to “like” the tweet if they backed Trump. A spokeswoman for Addison Rae, on the other hand, stated that the liked tweets were a glitch.
According to a Forbes report released in August 2020, Rae made $5 million in the previous year through June from her many endorsement deals and goods, making her the highest-earning TikTok performer. Rae’s popularity on TikTok has led to collaborations with brands such as Reebok, L’Oréal, Hollister, and American Eagle. Rae donated her $1 million prize money from the Stay At Home Slam, an all-star Mario Tennis Aces tournament, to the charity No Kid Hungry in 2020.
