Personal life of Jay Alvarez
Jay Alvarrez was born in Oahu, Hawaii, on July 5th, 1995. He claimed his mother kept him grounded all the time. That is why Jay decided for an ultimate move to chase his dreams of being a photographer and exploring exotic places. Jay dropped out of school and left home when he was only 15 years old. The same year, Jay took a huge emotional hit when his mother passed, but according to him, art and depression go hand-in-hand.
Jay’s fame finally took off when he started dating Alexis Ren. He was flooded with lucrative deals and took full advantage of social media. In 2017 Jay got bored of his lifestyle and decided to reconnect with his old life. He packed his bag and moved back to his tiny island in the Pacific Ocean to reunify with his family and old friends. By this time, Jay had already enough money saved up to buy his dream surf house on the beach where he grew up. Jay stated that he plans to use this time to improve his psychological and mental health.
The career of Jay Alvarez
Jay’s fascination with photography began at an early age, thanks to his friend Amber. They were both convinced that their creativity could earn money. With high expectations, Amber and Jay dropped out of seventh grade to pursue their dreams. Reality hit him hard, and Jay was forced to take every little opportunity to earn money for his exotic trips. After Jay’s mom passed away, he claimed that art and depression went hand-in-hand and gained the confidence to be himself and live life without filters.
Jay realized the impact of social media and started his social media career. Firstly, Jay created a Tumblr account but later started posting his art photographs on Instagram and creative videos to YouTube. His videos are primarily from his adventures around the world and Jay participating in extreme sports.
Jay’s career really took off after he started dating Alexis Ren in 2014. This already well-established model opened his path to lucrative model jobs. “I remember the paychecks just got bigger, and the job just kept getting crazier.” Jay didn’t have any problem adjusting to his new lifestyle, summer in the Mediterranean and Greece, fall in Miami and Los Angeles, winter in Southeast Asia and Dubai, and spring in the Caribbean and Central America.
Jay Alvarrez always refers to himself as an outcast who had different thoughts than the rest of the small town he grew up in. He gets messages from people worldwide about how he changed their lives and helped them find enough courage to leave their small town behind them and move out. This inspired one of his most famous videos, “Jay In The Simulation EP #1 - Who is Jay Alvarrez?”. It is a compilation of his previous adventures with commentary telling the story of his life.
The love life of Jay Alvarrez
Jay’s first public relationship was with a model, Chaser Miller. In the time of her relationship with Jay, Miller was most known for her collaboration with the brand Brandy Melville.
Jay Alvarrez dated Alexis Ren between the years 2014 and 2016. Alexis Ren was already an established model in the fashion industry when the two started dating together. Her popularity helped Jay establish his own popularity and helped him rise to stardom. Both of their mothers died due to cancer and really connected through it. This seemingly picture-perfect relationship wasn’t that perfect after all. After their break-up, Alexis claimed that Jay just dated her for business purposes. Even though she thinks Jay loved her at first, once money got involved, everything changed. After their break-up, Alexis claimed she spent 2 years getting out of deals where Jay had percentage income from her work. She even started a Twitter rant “self-love, self-growth and self-trust… stay away from f--kboys,” she advised, “He’s got a small d--k too.”
There was a rumour Jay Alvarrez dated YouTuber Tana Mongeau. This was never publicly confirmed, but Tana used “boyfriend tag” in one of her videos with Jay. In addition, Jay and Tana took a trip to Greece. She posted an Instagram photo with Jay feeding her grapes, “bae feeding me clout like,” which sparked the initial dating rumours.
After three years with no confirmed relationship, Jay started dating an Italian fashion vlogger Valentina Fradegrada in 2019. Jay wasted no time getting the drama rolling and posted a naked picture of them on Instagram with the description, “I wish you were my big toe so I can bang you on every piece of furniture in my house.” Many people got offended and called him disgusting and desperate for likes. Jay commented that he could not believe someone got offended by this and eventually deleted the post.
Jay Alvarrez coconut oil scandal
Coconut oil is amongst the latest trends of TikTok, and even if many people probably already know, I’m gonna tell you why. After being showcased in the Impaulsive podcast with Logan Paul and Mike Malak, this video got really brought to the public.
Jay Alvarrez and Sveta Bilyalova shot a sex tape together, and it got leaked. Or did it? This video is very well produced and almost looks like some kind of expensive perfume ad. It’s well-edited, lightning is superior, and everything is accompanied by the track Pass That Dutch by Missy Elliott. This led to many people believing that it got leaked on purpose to just boost the fame of two participants of this video. Sveta herself even shared that Jay threatened her to reveal the video if she didn’t respond to his messages after she dumped him.
So why the coconut oil trend? Jay Alvarrez holds coconut oil against the camera, boils it in a kettle and proceeds to use it as a lube. Sounds “hot”, right? In its nature, it’s just a porn video with a strange coconut oil element, perfect lighting and camerawork. A masterpiece product in internet virality.
How much does Jay Alvarrez earn? Net worth!
Jay’s estimated net worth is $2,5 mіllіоn as of 2021. He earns most of his money as a model, music producer and social media influencer.
Jay has nearly 7 million followers on Instagram, over 250,000 followers on Twitter and almost 1.5 million subscribers on YouTube. Many believe that this is the peak of Jay’s career because fans start to turn their backs on him. Jay’s rose to fame was crazy, but people began experiencing more of his personality as he got more famous. His fans think he craves attention and would do anything for likes. With his ex’s revealing disturbing details of their relationship, Jay’s future doesn’t seem that bright.
On the other hand, Jay sits comfortably on his already earned money. Modelling deals keep coming, and he rides his Lamborghini Gallardo.
