Piper Rockelle

Who is Piper Rockelle?

Piper Rockelle is an American influencer who is active on YouTube, TikTok, Instagram and other social platforms. Her full name is Piper Rockelle Smith, and she was born on 21 August 2007 in Georgia, United States. She is known for posting pranks, challenges and music videos on her social media.   

Early life of Piper Rockelle  

Piper grew up alongside her two brothers, Tylor and Hunter Ray, and her mother, Tifanny. Since their father left them when Piper was just a baby, Tiffany became a single mother who had to take care of them. Piper didn't have a regular childhood as she rarely went to school. Her mom signed her up for dancing classes, which Piper enjoyed and became very good at. During one lesson, Piper's dance teacher showed her body as an example of a great dancer's body. Piper's mom realised that Piper was more beautiful than expected for a girl her age and that she could use it.   

Piper Rockelle on Beauty Pageants   

Since her mom didn't realise how damaging it can be for young kids, she signed Piper up for her first beauty pageant when she was just 7 years old. Piper enjoyed participating in those shows, but soon after that, she got to know the consequences. Because of the constant beauty pageants and dance shows, Piper had to be home-schooled so she would have enough time for everything. While she didn't get the chance to make friends at school, she got to know some kids from popular families. Once she was too old for kids' beauty pageants, Piper's mom decided to sign a contract with a modelling agency for her. Since she experienced so much fame when young, Piper grew up used to being in front of a camera.  

Did Piper Rockelle have an eating disorder?   

While all of her experiences might sound like a dream to other kids, Piper had to deal with some unfortunate consequences. Since she was used to being thin and being set as an example of a perfect dancer's body, Piper cared about her body image a lot. At kids' beauty pageants, eating disorders were unfortunately quite common, so no one was surprised when it came to Piper. One day, she noticed that she had gained some weight and became obsessed with fixing it. She stopped eating snacks and any sugary foods and began running around the house just to burn some calories. Luckily, Piper got the help she needed before things could get really bad.    

Piper Rockelle before fame  

Since she was used to being in the spotlight, Piper joined social media at a very young age. At the time, musical.ly was the most popular social platform for teenagers, so Piper created her profile there. Since she was very pretty and could dance, it didn't take long for Piper to get recognised. Her dance choreographies were thought through, and the execution was perfect as well. Besides her obvious talent for dancing, Piper was a natural in front of a camera. Although some might see her childhood as damaged, it certainly helped Piper when choosing a career. It only took a few months for Piper to collect thousands of fans and become one of the most popular teenage social media stars. At the time, she was just beginning her studies at the Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science & Technology, but it was clear to everyone that Piper was just creating her safety net in case of a failure.  

Piper Rockelle on YouTube   

After building her loyal fanbase on musical.ly, Piper decided to create a YouTube channel. She posted her first video in 2016 when she was just 8 years old. Of course, she couldn't film those videos by herself, so she brought help. Since then, Piper's older brother Tyler has acted as her social media manager and her overall support person. Since she was still a child, Piper chose to film DIY videos, specifically slime tutorials. One of her first-ever videos included little Piper standing over a big bowl of fluffy slime when obviously excited about her creation. Since she was very cute and extremely well-spoken for her age, her video went viral in just a few weeks. Piper kept filming slime tutorials as well as dancing videos, and the get channel was getting bigger every day.   

Piper Rockelle's music career   

Growing up, Piper dreamed about the same things as other young girls her age. But since she grew up to be an internet icon, she had the means to make her dreams come true. One of her dreams was to become a singer, so she asked her mom and brother to help with that. Piper's mom called her contacts in the music industry, and they agreed to help turn Piper into a teen superstar. While it might seem like a silly dream, Piper showed some talent for singing as well as the right articulation. Before realising, Piper became one of the most popular teen singers on YouTube, with millions of views on every single music video of hers. Her most popular video is Piper Rockelle – Bby I... (Official Music Video) **First Kiss On Camera**, with over 41 million views. Piper's singing is supplemented by fun, upbeat music and great acting performances, which makes every song a hit.   

Piper's squad   

Once she gained popularity on YouTube, Piper got in touch with other promising teens on the platform. She got in touch with the most influential teens possible and asked them to become a part of her group. Her intention was to create a fun circle of friends who would have fun together and, while doing that, gain even more popularity. The squad changes members every now and then, but some are stable, for example, Lev Cameron and Emily Dobson. Since Piper was already known for filming pranks and challenges, her new group of friends created new possibilities for growth. They began to come up with interesting ideas for challenges, which their audience loved.   

Once the squad got together, it caused all the members to gain popularity as expected, but it also caused a lot of drama. Since all of the squad members were influential teenagers, the internet tasted a lot of high school drama. It involved a lot of gossips, some lies and a surprising amount of supposed cheating. All the members got somehow involved until they realised that the drama had gained them additional fame. Since then, one of the most popular video topics for Piper's squad became drama. Unfortunately, some of the created dramatic moments transferred to their real lives.   

Controversy of the Piper's squad  

What could go wrong when a group of young teenagers becomes famous on the internet? The simple answer is a lot. While all the members were usually just having fun with their pranks and challenges, something changed. Once they gained more followers as a group, they began acting as adults. It all began with Piper, who decided it was a good idea to post a photo of herself in a bikini on Instagram. There is a constant problem of children on the internet getting sexualised by creeps, and parents wouldn't want their children to act like Piper and others. After that, the squad began posting provocative dancing videos and videos which included suggestions of sexual content. While all of that is quite normal on the internet, it seems like members of Piper's squad forgot that they are mostly just 13 years old.   

Is Piper being used by her mother?   

All the drama began in 2021, when Pink, the popular singer, spoke about Piper and her mom. In Pink's eyes, Piper was being used by her own mother and her boyfriend for views and money, as it was unlikely that Piper would come up with all the questionable content. Piper posted a video in her mother's defence, stating that she makes her own decisions and isn't being used. The internet answered with a lot of confusion, posting mixed reactions everywhere. But ultimately, most people seemed to believe Pink, as they weren't convinced by Piper's statement.   

The Piper's squad lawsuit  

In 2022, everything seemed to get even more problematic when Piper's mom received a notice to appear in court. Eleven former members of Piper's squad decided to sue Tifanny for allegations of abuse and exploitation. In a nutshell, Tifanny was sued for not paying the kids for agreed appearances in episodes and for sabotaging their solo accounts after they decided to leave Piper's squad. In addition to that, they accused Tiffany of making sexually inappropriate jokes and comments about the former members, who were all just kids. Once all these accusations came to light, Piper's channel was demonetised, and she was released from the partner's program. Most of the former members agreed to participate in an interview, where they all agreed that they didn't blame Piper. Most of them stated that Piper was being treated the same way they were.   

Personal life of Piper Rockelle  

Since she basically grew up in front of a camera, Piper knew that all her romantic relationships would be public. Probably because of it, she decided to make a show on every one of them. Piper is known for baiting her viewers into her music videos by adding a suggestive title, promising them to see her first kiss on camera. Piper's first love came in 2019 when she announced to be dating a fellow YouTuber, Gavin Magnus. The couple stayed together for a year until they, unfortunately, broke up. While Piper said it happened because Magnus wasn't faithful, Magnus stated that it was because of Piper's mother who created a toxic environment. In 2020, Piper was asked by a member of her squad and a fellow influencer, Lev Cameron, to be his valentine. Piper agreed and, a few weeks later, announced to be in a relationship again.
