As the most followed creator on TikTok, it’s understandable why fans want to know about Charli D’Amelio‘s net worth and how much she makes from the social media platform that made her into the star she is today.

Charli, who was born on May 1, 2004 in Norwalk, Connecticut, is the youngest daughter of Marc D’Amelio, a former Republican Connecticut senate candidate, and Heidi D’Amelio, a former model and photographer. Her older sister, Dixie D’Amelio, is also a TikTok creator, with more than 50 million followers. In September 2021, Hulu released a docuseries about Charli and her family titled The D’Amelio Show, which chronicles the family’s lives and careers in Los Angeles. In an interview with Variety in 2020, Charli—who became the first TikTok creator to reach 100 million followers in November 2020—opened up about how her life has changed since her social media success.

“At first, it was really uncomfortable because when TikTok started, it was kind of like, ‘Oh, you’re on TikTok? That’s weird,'” she said. “So I wouldn’t tell people. Someone would come up to me and maybe ask for a picture and then someone else would be like, ‘Oh, how do they know you? Like, what are you from?’ I was like, ‘Oh, I do social media. I don’t know,’ and I would get super uncomfortable.”

She continued, Then my friends would be like, ‘Hey, I saw you on my ‘For You’ page. That’s so weird.’ It was a lot of that until I felt comfortable to be like, ‘Yeah, I’m on TikTok.’ I just started posting videos, not really caring what anyone else thought, because I was having fun making them. But since then, I have switched to an online one-on-one schooling program that’s great for me because I tend to have a pretty busy schedule. So I’m able to work my hours of schooling around that and I can do them a little bit earlier and get them done. I’ve also been able to make a lot more friends out in California.”

Charli started her TikTok in May 2019 with lip-syncing videos before she transitioned to dancing videos. “I got started with TikTok because all of my friends were using the app and posting on their accounts. I didn’t have an account, so I was just dancing on their phones and I’d be like, ‘Oh, can you send me that? That’s so cool,'” Charli told Variety in 2020. “Eventually I decided to make my own account because I was having so much fun making all of these dance videos with my friends. I got the app, I started dancing, my videos started getting a little bit more popular on the app and a lot has happened since then. Now I’m here getting to do stuff like this.”

Her first viral video was in July 2019 when she posted a “duet” of her dancing with TikTok user Move With Joy. In November 2019, Charli joined the Hype House with her older sister, Dixie. The two left the Hype House in May 2020. In November 2020, Charli became the first TikTok user to reach 100 million followers.
