Maddy Spidell is an American social media influencer, content creator, YouTuber, and excellent dancer who is best known as Mr. Beast’s girlfriend. They have been dating since June 2019.
She started dancing at the age of 2 and has been privileged to perform in many places across the United States. Although Maddy has been doing very well for herself, she shot to prominence due to her association with famous YouTuber Jimmy Donaldson, aka Mr. Beast. Maddy was accused of dating the famous and wealthy YouTuber primarily for his money, but Mr. Beast spoke up in her defense, saying that it was true love that brought them together.
Maddy Spidell was Born 22 Years Ago
Maddy Spidell was born on March 20, 2000, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, making her 2 years old. She is the only daughter of Michael and Mary Spidell. Her mother, Mary, is a worker in the Milwaukee public school system. Maddy has two older siblings named Jedd and Thad. Jedd is a development coordinator at the Muscular Dystrophy Association, while Thad is in the United States Air Force.
For her education, Maddy graduated from Greendale High School in Wisconsin before attending and graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2021. She graduated with a degree in Business Administration, adding that to her already rich skill portfolio.
While Maddey was at Greendale High School, she was a member of their Poms for four years. Her dedication and achievement in the school did not go unnoticed cos she earned several awards and recognitions for her talent in their group. One of the awards includes the Miss Badgerette title.
This affirmed the talent that she has for dancing and further provided more opportunities for her to be part of the dancing troupe that performed at the 2016 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. She also took part in several dance competitions in California, Florida, and Michigan. She was the High Poms captain during her first year in High school, although she later lost it in her second year but remained an influential member of the group.
How She Made a Career Out Of Her Passion For Dancing and Fashion
Maddy has a great passion for dancing and has been dancing for a very long time. Her journey started at the CM Dance Studio at 2 years of age, and she has progressed to perfect her art at the Young Dance Academy.
She also doubled her time dancing at the academy by learning new dancing techniques such a ballet, lyrical, jazz, tap, and pointe. Dancing is the one activity that Maddy Spidell always made time for, even when she had a hectic schedule as a dance instructor and a store worker.
Although it has already been mentioned that Maddy has been in the dancing business since she was 2 years of age, she decided to join the social media trend through which many other young ladies have made themselves popular. She started displaying her dancing prowess and her love for fashion on social media. This earned her the attention of thousands of followers.
Her popularity soon started earning her money as she became a social media influencer for various brands, a side hustle that complimented her dancing. The next phase of her life and career didn’t just happen overnight for Maddy Spidell, but it certainly improved when she met Mr. Beast.
Maddy Spidell’s Relationship with Mr. Beast
Revelations started becoming evident that Maddy Spidell and Mr. Beast (whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson) were an item when they both began frequenting each other’s social media pages. The two confirmed that they met on Twitter and instantly became friends before taking a new turn.
Mr. Beast is a famous YouTuber who has been renowned for his videos where he performs daring stunts and acts of philanthropy. Fans love Mr. Beast because they find his videos entertaining and educational as well. He has over 65 million subscribers on his YouTube page and is one of the richest YouTubers in the world.
Maddy was Accused of Dating Mr. Beast for His Money
It is understandable that social media went abuzz with rumors that the two were dating. The Milwaukee dancer was, however, thrown off balance for a bit about the accusations that she was dating the content creator for what she would gain from him. Many tweets accused her of being a gold digger that took advantage of Mr. Beast’s wealth and fame to get into his life. The fact that Mr. Beast was just a year older than Maddy didn’t help her case with some ruthless opinionated fans.
Maddy Spidell was later forced to release a tweet saying: “If I wasn’t clear, I don’t want Mr. Beast for his money, just wanted a boyfriend with good taste in anime, who can make me laugh, leave me alone and let me have an unattainable internet crush lmfao.”

This didn’t stop the chatter that followed, probably because Mr. Beast has not confirmed their relationship. He eventually started giving some indications that what has been said in some quarters might be true when he posted their picture together that he tagged, “We are simple people. We see a new PewDiePie video, we watch it.” He immediately started posting pictures of them together in several spots with romantic gestures that would suggest that their relationship is not a fluke after all.
Mr. Beast Made His Relationship with Maddy Internet Official
In December 2019, Mr. Beast took the whole relationship thing to a whole new level when he went viral with his YouTube post on December 18, 2019. The occasion was set for them to watch Frozen 2 in the theatres; the young man decided to rent out the entire place to have an exclusive time seeing the movie with Maddy Spidell while eating popcorns. Maddy did not expect this gesture at the time, more so, there was another twist to it.
The film began by showing all the pictures they’ve taken together and it was a fantastic spectacle for Maddy. Following this, Drama Alert’s Daniel Keem “KEEMSTAR” began inquiring from Mr. Beast directly if Maddy was his official girlfriend; he then responded, “Yes, me a happy boi.”
This was the official announcement of their relationship. Maddy and Mr. Beast started featuring prominently on each other’s social media pages, and this influenced Maddy positively as the number of followers she had on Instagram multiplied tenfold. They have been together ever since and are indeed waxing stronger.
On 2020 Valentine’s Day, Mr. Beast turned up the heat by surprising Maddy Spidell with over 100,000 Roses, all caught on video and posted on his YouTube channel with snapshots on Maddy’s Instagram. She has since been featuring steadily on most of his YouTube videos, including “Surprising My Girlfriend with 100,000 Roses for Valentine’s Day,” “Day I adopted a Dog Shelter” and “I Spent 50 Hours In Solitary Confinement.”
Has Maddy’s Been in any Past Relationships?
Maddy Spidell is a relatively private person who rarely hugs the limelight despite being a social media influencer. This is also how she has managed her relationship with Mr. Beast that very little is known of them apart from those they share. There have been no records of Maddy’s past relationships since she became popular, and all related links have only been with her current boyfriend.
