Two things are possibly true about people who don’t know that being a social media content creator is a lucrative career: it is either they are not of this world or they have been living in a cave. Many people have become millionaires through creating social media content and many more aspire to join this trend to build something meaningful like Alissa Violet. She was one of those who found fame on Vine before it was shut down.
Leveraging her popularity online, she got into acting and it has helped her consolidate her fame. Like other social media personalities and public figures, facts about the life of Alissa outside of what she does for a living piques the interest of many who apart from the details of her upbringing and family background, search for information about trivial things like her height.
The 53 Years Old Was Born and Raised in Brunswick, Ohio
Alissa Violet was born on the 12th of June 1996 in Brunswick, Ohio. It was also here that she spent most of her childhood. She was born to Robert and Susan Butler. From what we gathered, her father who was also born and bred in Brunswick is a business executive, the founder of a technology consulting company called Butler Automation Inc. Her mother known as Susan Medina before she got married also works at Butler Automation Inc. Alissa is not the only child of her parents but the only girl child, the youngest of three siblings.
Rhett Allan Butler is her oldest brother and he was born sometime in 1989. Reports have it that Rhett wanted to become either an architect or an engineer when he was a kid. But as fate would have it, he studied Hospitality Management in college and currently makes a living as a student’s mentor. Alissa’s immediate older brother Joushau Richard Butler is a designer. The model has a good relationship with her brothers as much as she does with her parents.
Growing up, Alissa Violet attended and graduated from Brunswick High School, a public high school located in her hometown. It is hard to tell if she is college-educated as there are no reports that point to that.
Alissa Violet’s Height Is 5 Feet 9 Inches (175 cm) and It Helped Launched Her Career As a Model
Latvian women are the tallest in the world and their average height is around 5 feet 6.5 inches. So at 5 feet 9 inches, Alissa Violet is taller than most women in the world and indeed in her country: the average height for American women is 5 feet 4 inches.
Her height made it easy for her to gain the attention of several modeling agencies when she decided to pursue a career in the field. Prior to that, she was in high school and worked part-time in a bakery. A day before she graduated from high school, she met Jake and Logan Paul at a local meet and greet they held for their fans in Brunswick.
Alissa became friends with Jake and he utilized his contacts to get her appointment with modeling agencies. Given her impressive height, multiple agencies offered her a deal, including Next Models agency. This inspired her to leave Ohio for California as the agency is based in Los Angeles.
Alissa Violet’s Net Worth of $6 Million Is Mostly from Modeling, Acting, and YouTube Vlogging
Alissa has multiple sources of income and has come a long way since the days she worked in a bakery. Modeling has been one of the steady and major sources of her wealth. Although what she has made from this is best known to her, there is no doubt that the amount involved is significant.
The model also makes good money from being a content creator. She started building this source of income on Vine and then consolidated it on YouTube after Vine was shut down in October 2016. As of January 2022, she has 3.68 million subscribers on YouTube with over 248.2 million views. This amounts to a significant income year-in, year-out. Violet is also popular on other social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram where she commands as much as 10.8 million. What this means is that she also makes money as a social media influencer.
To the best of our knowledge, Violet made her first income as an actress in 2016 when she landed the role of Kylie in a TV series, The Deleted. Since then, she has played Alissa in Party in the Back, another TV series, and has been seen in several music videos. It is expected that acting would become a huge source of income for her in years to come.
Her Last Know Boyfriend Was Ricky Banks
Alissa Violet has had a dramatic love life since she came to the limelight. Although things have been quiet for her in that department of late, she had a very public relationship with Faze Banks whom she met sometime in June 2017. They featured on each other’s vlogs and were so great together that their fans named them Balissa. Things happened quickly between the two as they got engaged that same year, sometime in September 2017.
Things seemed to be going great and those rooting for the two were anticipating a wedding date when it emerged that Faze cheated on Alissa with another YouTuber, Tana Mongeau. They broke up in June 2019 and it seemed to be an amicable separation until December of that year when Alissa related on Twitter that Banks cheated on her multiple times and was abusive. Banks responded to her allegations in a statement wherein he expressed that they had issues they couldn’t resolve and decried making a spectacle out on an intimate relationship online.
Before Banks, she dated Jake Paul from 2016 to 2017. Their relationship also ended rather unfriendly. They brought their bitter feelings online where Alissa Violet disclosed that Jake evicted her from the Team 10 house. He accused her of cheating and she accused him of belittling her. She later made and shared a video titled What You’ve Been Waiting For on the 8th of June 2017. Therein, she detailed her unhappy days living in the Team 10 house with Jake.
