A lot of things have brought fame to a lot of people on social media including their humour, uniqueness, sense of style, and other things that are sometimes crazy. For Jay Versace, what has brought him fame is his weirdness. He is known for his videos on YouTube and Vine which capture a lot of things that are weird and entertaining. Here are things you may want to know about him.
Jay Versace Biography and Age
He was born on January 24, 1998, in Pleasantville, New Jersey. The surprising thing though is that no one knows anything about his real name. He was brought up alongside a sister and just like his name, there are a lot of other things about him that are unknown including his parents. But then, it is known that he was raised by his mother and stepfather.
Although the name is not known, Jay Versace has spoken a number of times in his videos about his school. He talks about how he hated almost everything about school and how he doesn’t have any best subject.
What has brought him to the limelight as pointed out earlier are his YouTube channels and social media engagements which have got him a very massive followership. His fame began when he started posting videos on Vine and then YouTube. His funny videos which could take unpredictable turns have soon got him many followers and subscribers.
He draws inspiration for his videos from almost everything around him, including his mom and grandmother whom he has mimicked in most of his videos.
On vine where he began it all, he now has as much as 3 million followers and on YouTube, he has accumulated over 700 thousand followers since he began in 2013. His wired videos on YouTube have got close to 20 million views even before the middle of 2018.
On other social media sites where he also shares his contents, Jay Versace has a massive followership with over 3 million followers on Instagram and close to 1.2 million on Twitter.
It has not been a journey for him on social media without controversy over the years. He was involved in a feud with Mindless Behaviour’s Princeton Perez whose chat he shared on social media because he was tired of the singer and wanted him to leave him alone. The messages shared between the two were said to be intense and although Versace warned the other to stop sending the messages to him, he insisted and that was why he shared them.
Following the messages which became a huge talking point on social media, both Versace and Princeton Perez suspended their Twitter and Instagram account before Versace came back to reactivate his own. He would, however, come out to apologize, stating that he shared the chat in anger.
Is he Gay or Straight?
As different from most stars as he is about most other things, so is he also different from most others when it comes to his sexual orientation. According to a revelation he made, he doesn’t prefer men or women, as he would not define himself as straight or gay.
According to the funny YouTube star, he loves humans without necessarily caring about their gender, hence he can fall in love with a man or woman. In other words, he is neither gay nor straight as the sexuality is referred to as pansexuality.
Essentially, as he added, he doesn’t want to be put in a box based on his sexuality.
As regards his dating history, Versace has not been linked to anyone, either a man or woman in the past. Nevertheless, he has not failed to point out on his Twitter that he is in need of a boyfriend or a girlfriend.
Height and Weight
A rather good-looking young man with what one may describe as a babyface, he has a height of 6 feet 1 inch (1.85 meters or 185 centimetres), and a body weight of 66 kg (132 pounds).
Apart from his videos, he has also been engaged in a lot of other things including using his social media to promote various services and products. He has also acted in a number of TV series including The Commute (2016), That’s The Gag (2917), and Hacking High School (2017).
With everything that he is involved in, he has been able to amass a net worth that is estimated at $700 thousand.
