Loren Gray’s Data Sheet
How Loren Gray Became Famous
Loren Gray Beech was born in Pottstown, Pennsylvania on the 19th of April, 2002. The real identities of her parents are not known but her father is the owner of an Instagram account @reallylorensdad. On this account, he posts funny pictures and videos of himself and Loren. It is also known that the young star lived with her mother after her parents divorced and remained in contact with her dad. Jordan, her half-sister from her father is another member of her family that is known to the public. She was homeschooled in the early days of her education.
Loren Gray kicked off her career as a child model where she appeared in Teen Vogue and Seventeen Magazine. But her emergence into fame took place after she joined Musical.ly in 2015, wherein she mostly posted videos of herself doing covers of songs and in a short while she had gotten a large following.
Regardless of the massive love she was getting online, her life lacked true affection. By the time she was in the 6th grade, Gray became a target for bullies. This only stopped when the family moved out of Pennsylvania to Los Angeles
At her new location, she was able to focus on her career as a social media star, expanding her horizon by sharing her content not just on musical.ly which is now known as TikTok but also on Instagram and YouTube.
Choosing to upload content on other social media sites meant that Gray started to make other content outside of the covers she was making. This content includes videos of all the things in her life as well as her fashion style. She has since become a social media sensation with millions of followers across different platforms.
In the course of her career, Gray has been nominated for a Teen Choice Award and has received recognition for the quality of the work she puts out. She was also nominated for the People’s Choice Awards in 2016; unfortunately, she did not win the award.
With the 38.3 million followers she has on TikTok, Gray has the highest followership in the world. Although this number is not replicated on her other social media accounts, she still boasts of a high following with the 18.4 million followers she has on Instagram and the 3.66 million subscribers she has on her YouTube channel. More so, she has had over 62 million views across her social media accounts.
But building a career in social media is not all that Loren Gray does. Her social media presence was built on the fact that she could sing, with the covers she used to put up on TikTok. In 2018, Gray got signed to Virgin Record and in August of that year, she released her single My Story. So far she has released six singles and has worked on one song with the Lost Kings.
How Much She Earned From Her Career
Loren Gray has had a career on social media for half of a decade and in that time she has not only garnered a large following but has made a lot of money for herself. She has also modeled for a lot of advertising agencies and platforms like; Teen Vogue, Seventeen Magazine, and modeled products like clothes and bags. With her wide range of social involvements, this social media star who is also an aspiring musician has managed to build a fortune for herself and she currently has a net worth of $3.3 million.
Everything We Know About Her Relationships
Loren Gray has had a series of relationships and has been very much open about them. She is currently single but has dated at least four people since 2015. Joey Kisluk, a fellow social media star is among the dudes she has dated in the past. They were in a relationship from 2015 till 2016. During the course of their relationship, they had great chemistry and even had a joint Instagram account, however, due to their growing busy schedule, the duo went separate ways.
Juwany Roman is the next person she dated in 2016. He is popularly known as Geo and just like Gray, he is a social media personality. Unfortunately, both of them broke up because of Geo’s extreme jealous, controlling, and abusive nature. It was so bad that he tried dictating what Gray wore.
Leigh Cantwell, the British musician known as HRVY was believed to be in a relationship with Gray in 2017. This was not confirmed by either party. In 2018, Loren started to date the brother of James Charles, Ian Jeffrey and by early 2019 the couple split. Hopefully soon, she will find someone who has everything she likes in a man.
Controversies and Scandals
Like most celebrities, Loren is no stranger to controversy or scandal. In 2016, Loren attacked Baby Ariel, another social media celebrity, by imitating her and making fun of her comedic skills.
All of this she did on a two-minute-long video that got leaked. When the leak happened, social media users trolled her for mocking Ariel’s talents. Gray took to social media to apologize and later put her social media accounts private.
Ariel seemed to be her number one rival given that she lost People’s Choice Awards in 2016 to Baby Ariel (a Muser and YouTuber from Florida) after her nomination.
