Who is the richest TikToker in the world?
Charli D’Amelio is the second top content creator in the world and the richest and highest-paid TikTok star in 2022 according to 2021 data by Forbes. She makes $17.5 million from her casual clothing brand Social Tourist (a joint venture with Hollister and sister Dixie), Hulu show Charli vs. Dixie and deals with brands like Invisalign, Morphe, and Dunkin’.
She is from the United States but now lives in ResidenceNorwalk, Connecticut. She is currently in a relationship with Landon Barker, the son of Travis Barker. She is currently 18 years old.
While she still posts videos of dances on her TikTok page, D’Amelio also devotes much of her content to pushing her own brands and partnerships.
A huge part of this is D’Amelio Brands, her family’s consumer product company, which nabbed a $100 million valuation as a pre-revenue, pre-employee, and pre-product company, as it has publicity rights to the whole family and will make D’Amelio-branded products in areas like skincare and footwear.
She and her family also launched a $25 million venture capital shop 444 Capital to back nascent companies in everything from insurtech to consumer brands.
