There is not much information about Larray’s childhood and studies. Although the identity of his family is unknown, in an interview with AwesomenessTV, he revealed he has 13 siblings: “Fun fact. I have thirteen siblings, and I’m not even kidding. My dad… My dad uh… He’s been ‘walking around the block’, that’s the best way to put it”.
Although Larray grew up in Los Angeles, at some point in his teenage years he moved with his father out of town.
Larray started his career as a content creator in 2015, when he started sharing funny videos on Vine, and his son gained over 100,000 subscribers. Although Larray’s Vines is no longer available as the app is now discontinued, compilation videos of its contents can be found on the internet.
After gaining huge success on Vine, and long before the web shut down, Larray had already started exploring more options and started his own YouTube channel.
He debuted on the platform with the video titled “My Night Routine!”, which dates back to June 15, 2015 and has so far garnered over a million views.
YouTube’s video structure proved positive for Larray, as he could share longer videos on a wide variety of topics, including lifestyle, makeup, fashion, video games, and internet viral challenges. Larray now has over six million subscribers to his channel.
Apart from collaborating with other famous YouTubers such as James Charles and The Dolan Twins, Larray has also released various songs such as “First Place”, “Last Place”, “Latina”, “Thanos” and “Canceled”.
Recently, Larray started posting content on the short-form video app TikTok, on which he gained over 12 million followers.
His web content consists of funny videos of himself and his friends dancing, and other comedic situations.
His immense fame on TikTok also earned him a place in The Hype House, a creative collective formed by 19 members in early 2020, with the aim of being a “collab house”, a tradition of influencers which consists of a group living together in a lodge. This can provide creators with the means to work as a team, but also help them find “emotional support for what can be a grueling career”, as the New York Times states.
The idea to create The Hype House came from Chase Hudson, Larray’s star and friend on TikTok. The house is located in Los Angeles.
What is the origin of his stage name?
Larray is a combination of his name Larri and the middle name of pop star Miley “Ray” Cyrus, who was Larray’s childhood idol and favorite singer.
Larry affirmed his ethnicity is mixedbecause her mother is Caucasian and her father is Afro-Latino.
Larray is openly gay, and in March 2019 began dating fellow influencer and TikToker Brady Potter, who is also a current member of The Hype House. In October 2020, Larray celebrated their relationship with a sweet photo of them together posted on instagram: “Relationships come with a lot of ups and downs, but somehow, a year and 6 months later, you still find a way to put up with me. happy birthday baby aka the white man John Smith.’ The photo has racked up over a million likes and over 26,000 comments.
Relationship with his father
In the past, Larray has made various jokes about his relationship with his father, including comparing him to Marvel villain Thanos from the movie ‘Avengers: Endgame’ because they both allegedly “disappeared”.
Despite his nonchalant attitude about it and the negative speculation regarding his relationship with his father, Larray posted a photo with his sire on his Instagram account in June 2020 with the following caption: ‘Happy Father’s Day Dad. I miss you’.
Although the post was meant to celebrate the love between father and son, the post sparked more rumors and some Larray fans asked if his father was dead.
Larray refuted those rumors in a later video, revealing that his father is currently imprisoned, which is why he misses him.
In September 2020, a link to channel45news was posted by someone on the internet, who revealed that Larray had supposedly died, stating the cause was “epilepsy in domestic duties”.
Even if the subject was serious, it was later revealed that the message was a prank and that Larray is alive and well. Despite this, some of Larray’s fans have started inquiring on his social media accounts about his current health.
In July 2020, Larray attended a surprise birthday party hosted by model and influencer Nikita Dragun.
The celebration was attended by several online celebrities, such as Charli D’Amelio and James Charles. The party was strongly criticized by the media, as it took place during the pandemic lockdown in Los Angeles, where there is currently an increase in COVID-19 cases. YouTuber Tyler Oakley has also publicly shown his disapproval of the party, tagging some of his aides – including Larray – on Twitter, with the message: “please consider social distancing, mask-wearing and using your huge platforms to encourage accountability during a global pandemic”.
Larray responded to this Tweet by saying, “I 100% understand where you’re coming from and that was a dumb thing to do.” I’ll do better and take this shit seriously. i appreciate you tyler lots of love.
Larray’s estimated net worth is over $1 million at the end of 2020 which is a result of his work as a social media influencer, YouTuber and TikToker.
