Charlie Blythe is an American artist who blew up on TikTok due to her insane confession about her privileged upbringing. Blythe’s viral video has accrued more than 10 million views, and it has increased her following to 109.2K.
Blythe answered a video request from another TikTok user to share her ‘most insane rich person behavior’ story. Her response revealed a life full of extravagance, drama, paranoia, and mystery. Blythe’s TikToks reveal that she enjoys a simple life with her cat, but fans are still obsessed with her upbringing.
This piece will look at Charlie’s mind-blowing revelations, people’s reaction to them, and Charlie’s career.
Charlie’s story about her mega-rich divorced parents sent fans on a mission to figure out her identity
Charlie’s first revelation was that the family house was so big that she had to use an intercom system to let her dad know that dinner – which had been prepared by a private chef – was ready. The family home always had at least seven employees at a time, including security guards. Despite the tight security, Charlie’s mom constantly feared that the employees would hatch a plan to kidnap her daughter.
All Charlie needed to do to get anything from the grocery store was right down what she needed on a notepad that was ever-present in the kitchen. Blythe also revealed that her dad couldn’t repeat a 30-minute commercial flight from Nantucket to Boston. She said:
“One time we took a 30-minute commercial flight from Boston to Nantucket, and my dad hated commercial flying so much, despite the fact state police officers helped us get through it, he had the private plane meet us in Nantucket to bring us back to Boston.”
Charlie’s parent’s divorce complicated her life as she couldn’t keep track of her underwear in the four houses she was forced to live in. The divorce also attracted unwanted attention to the family. “My parent’s divorce made the news, calling my mom a gold digger, and the comments were full of men counting down the years until I turned 18,” Blythe said. “I wasn’t allowed to put my last name on social media because people would track me down and kidnap me.”
Blythe’s confession sent some fans on a mission to find out her heritage. In a subsequent video, Charlie confirmed that some people in the comments got it right, but she urged fans to respect hers and her family’s privacy. However, she refused to confirm her parent’s identity.
Charlie pleaded with fans to stop posting hateful comments and to refrain from posting her personal information
Unfortunately, Charlie’s viral video attracted loads of negativity from fans who mocked her privileged upbringing. Some fans also unearthed Charlie’s last name and her parent’s identity. It forced Charlie to turn comments on the ‘rich person behavior’ video off. She then posted a video explaining her decision:
“For one, some people were saying some really ignorant and hurtful things that I can’t control, and I hope you all can understand that. Second of all, you all are good. You’re fast. You were finding my parents and my birth name. And, well, most of you. Some of you were incorrect – I hate to tell you. And I know I kind of asked for it, but I just… I wasn’t comfortable having that out there, so…”
Blythe later posted another video captioned, ‘hi I’m just a person pls be kind.’ She expressed surprise at how popular the video had gotten and regretted that it had brought attention to her. Charlie lamented that some fans had taken things too far by posting her personal information. Blythe then pleaded with fans to respect her privacy. She concluded:
“I don’t want to take it down because I think that stuff is important to, like, kinda laugh at. But it’s kind of made me upset, I’m sorry. So please be respectful of my privacy, and yeah, I appreciate all the people messaging me, reaching out, and being nice.”
Blythe is a singer who used the stage name Ansonia before reverting to her real name
Charlie Blythe’s social media profiles direct people to her May 2020 single, Toothache. The synth-pop single has been doing quite well on Spotify since Charlie’s TikTok video went viral. Blythe used to go by the name Ansonia, but in April 2020, she reverted to her real name. She wrote on Twitter:
“Hey ansonia fam, this is Charlie. I’m here to announce that we will no longer be using the name ansonia, rather my own name of Charlie Blythe. Thank you all so much for the love and support you’ve given ansonia over the past few years.”
