TikTok Star Charli D’Amelio Hires Full-Time Security Amid Death Threats & Swatting Incidents

TMZ reports that the 16-year-old, who is the most-followed star on TikTok, was threatened by a troll who said they were going to turn up at her family’s house in Norwalk, Connecticut.

Her parents immediately contacted the authorities, and are reportedly paying overtime for police to be stationed outside their property.


According to sources who spoke to TMZ, Charli has also received several ‘swatting’ calls, which is when people falsely report an emergency at a peron’s home to police.

Since joining TikTok in June 2019, Charli has amassed one of the biggest fanbases on the app.

According to Cosmopolitan, the teenager charges up to $100,000 per post which is pretty major. Charli was also charges fans $100 for meet-and-greets.

She was recently called out in a tweet that also name dropped James Charles, Nikita Dragun, Tana Mongeau, Charli D’amelio and her sis Dixie D’amelio, for attending wild parties during COVID-19 by Tyler Oakley.


“If your favourite influencers are at huge house parties during a pandemic (& are dumb enough to post it on social media)… they are bad influences,” he began, telling folks to “unfollow them.”

When another fan questioned if TikTok star Charli was actually involved as she’s getting nose surgery, he responded with footage from a gathering where she can be seen hugging James Charles with a bandage on her nose, indicating that she went ahead and attending a gathering post-surgery.
