Only a few days ago, it was announced that teen dancing sensation Charli D’Amelio no longer held the position as the most-followed person on TikTok, being dethroned by comedian Khaby Lame. It’s safe to say, the news must have been a blow for the 18-year-old content creator. Don’t worry though because it looks like D’Amelio might have found a shoulder to cry on in Travis Barker’s son, Landon Barker.
According to an anonymous source who spoke to E! News, the two teen celebrities are “in the early stages of dating.” On 14 June, Charli and her older sister Dixie D’Amelio came out to support the model-turned-designer at the launch of his boohooMAN collection.
“It was a big night for Landon,” an eyewitness at the event told E! News. “It was important to him that Charli was included.”
The two allegedly kept close throughout the evening, smiling and talking, according to the publication’s source who also said, “They were careful not to show too much PDA with so many eyes around.” Perhaps it’s time for Landon to sit down with his dad and stepmother Kourtney Kardashian to teach them a thing or two about PDA then?
A week later, the two 18-year-olds raised eyebrows when they both shared Instagram Stories of new tattoos they got from the same Los Angeles-based artist. Soft launch, much?
Meanwhile Dixie, who is currently dating Noah Beck, went for a more private approach, keeping most of her relationship offline. And in doing so, their “relationship is better,” she previously told E! News. “It’s just so much more fun when you’re not worrying, ‘Oh my god, wait. You need to like my picture right now’ or because people are saying that we hate each other because we didn’t do this or whatever.”
“The people who truly love us are totally fine with our decision and whatever little sneak peeks of our lives they get,” she continued. “They are so sweet about it so it’s nice being able to have a balance.”
