Amidst so many things, or controversies so to say, Addison Rae has topped up to second in the TikTok follower-count rankings. It took a long time, but she's surpassed Zach King at around 44.5 million followers. But it was not for third place, but for the second position. It turns out, and as a surprise to us, Zach had originally overtaken Loren Gray to reach second a little before Addison really surpassed Loren as well. This should be around 44 million followers.
Yes, it took a really, really long time than expected. We thought three weeks, but yeah, King's follower-count increased from 42.3 million followers to 44.8 million followers at the time of writing, and that took some extra time. But a problem in that too was that her rate of follower count per week has significantly decreased. And who knew she'd be surpassing Loren before she caught up to Zach. By the way, Gray's number of followers only increased by about 1.3 million to 44.3 million, in the meantime.
Gathering a lot of love for this at the time on Instagram she surpassed Loren Gray on TikTok.

So the standings (if anyone is still even keeping track of this thing) currently looks like this, as of June 14, 2020:
#1 Charli D'Amelio: 63.1 million
#2 Addison Rae: 45.5 million
#3 Zach King: 44.8 million
#4 Loren Gray: 44.3 million
Addison Rae has been caught up in an online war, basically, between three houses — Hype House, Clubhouse and Sway House. Of course, Daisy Keech's allegations caused a huge rift in the first two of them, but Addison's rumored ship-partner, Bryce Hall from Sway House LA, had to go on and pick a fight with Hype House's Chase Hudson with his own allegation.
Add to the incidents, Clubhouse members Isaak Presley & Danielle Cohn's ex Sebastian Topete kind of picked a fight with Sway House's Bryce and consequently dragged Addison into the scene. A frigging triangle complete.

It all started with Presley and Topete filming a now-deleted YT video called Smash or Pass rating TikTok girls by looks. Of course, when Easterling came into the discussion, Hall was not pleased. A lot of online war and one face-to-face confrontation later, Topete revealed the receipts of him apologizing to Addison about it and her not thinking too much of it. This action of showing the private DMs to the public was what really ticked off Addison.
"I feel SO uncomfortable addressing this because this is SO private but I need to because clearly it's not stopping," Easterling wrote in her statement, according to Elite Daily. "I hate having bad blood with anyone. But I don't think anyone should EVER post private conversations without the consent of the other person." Yeah, that really was uncharted territory for Topete.
Meanwhile, Hall defending Rae so ferociously means they're dating again? Were they ever dating in the first place? Only for a month though, you missed their words for it. And yeah, attending BLM protests together and still acting like a couple did sway the Braddison fans to believed they were real. However, Addison is insisting again and again that they are not dating or anything.

The comments in the 100 Rack Challenge TikTok video where she pulled Hall into the frame during the words of the lyrics "my mans", read too much into the little routine and repeatedly linked the two. She fiercely set the records straight with comments, "It's just a trend, this is the choreography," and "No it's just a song/dance.
Oh, you got it all wrong fans.

You know how bestie Charli D'Amelio left the Hype House trying to clear things saying it was not because of the end of her relationship with Chase Hudson? Could this be the reason why? Or at least one of the reasons. Addison apparently liked some rude comments from users less than a year ago that shaded Charli when she was first getting traction in the TikTik world.
But no, they do not have bad blood with each other. Addison has cleared out that she was in a depressed state from a previous relationship at the time and did not know who Charli was back then at all.
"I didn't know her and hadn't met her. This is no excuse, but I will say, I had just gotten out of an extremely toxic and mentally-abusive relationship that tore my heart to shreds," she says in a recently released statement. "I was fully depressed and hated myself. I thought I was worthless without him, after five years of being together. I searched for compliments and love from others because I couldn't love myself without him."
"It's so gross and makes me really sad to think about to this day," she continues. "But, I do know that I've loved Charli since the day I met her. I've already told her that she doesn't need to forgive me, but I will say I was insanely desperate for love at that point in my life and that was what I had. I love and know Charli, and will love and support her no matter what."
