Family & History

Bella Poarch


Though sources are not sure if that’s indeed her real name, it’s believed that Bella Poarch was born on February 8th, 1997, in the Philippines. Some sources, including one of Bella’s tweets, state that she was born in 2001.

Her American father and Filipino mother adopted her when she was three years old. When Bella was 13, she moved to Hawaii with her parents. Because her family life is kept private, there is no information about her family except that she has two sisters and a brother.

When Bella was old enough, she enlisted in the U.S. Navy. She has publicly stated that she joined the military because she was bullied and wanted to be able to defend other Asian Americans. In addition, she said joining made her feel “free.”

During her active duty, Bella was stationed in Japan and reportedly fell in love with Japanese culture. Her Navy uniform shows her name as “Taylor,” which sparked some controversy about whether or not Poarch is her last name.

Bella Poarch began her Tiktok journey in April of 2020.

Her first video featured her gaming.

The rest of her account includes her lip-syncing, dancing, and some random videos people describe as being of the “cute aesthetic.”

Bella has followers across other social media platforms as well.

She started a YouTube channel shortly after creating her TikTok account. It currently has over 5.5 million subscribers and two official music videos created by Bella.

Bella’s Twitter account at this point has almost 1 million followers, and she’s posted over 1,000 tweets.

Her most famous videos are of her lip-syncing. She sometimes uses a filter and wears minimal makeup.

People question why these videos are so renowned, as all she is doing is bobbing her head and moving her lips to the music of her choice.

She is just now expanding her financial success with other venues. For example, she’s started a singing career with two original songs. Bella also launched a collaborative clothing line in 2020. In addition, she’s gaining publicity in magazines and online.

Bretman created a few videos before he gained fame that have been deleted, but his Instagram took off while Bretman attended high school.

His viral moment happened so quickly that Instagram had to shut down his account. However, there was outrage from fans that resulted in a hashtag to restore the Instagram account at the time.

He claims that watching his grandmother put makeup on before church inspired him to start using it at an early age. Bretman said his family always accepted him for who he was, even before he came out as gay.

He started his YouTube channel a few years before he actually began to use it for his beauty videos.

He’s inspired millions of people worldwide with his confident and humorous personality. 

Bretman has struggled with bullying in the past and some of the side effects of being a celebrity.

For example, people showed up at his father’s funeral in 2019 to get pictures of him and his father. He was appalled at the behavior, but it isn’t the only time it’s happened.

He said he’d like to remain in Hawaii because being a celebrity is different from being one on the mainland.
