Danielle Cohn is an American YouTube personality and TikTok star, who is also gaining success in the music industry. Originally from Florida, the popular YouTuber moved with her family to Los Angeles after reaching a high number of followers on the app, Musica.ly. She has been in a few scandals and ignited quite a bit of controversy in the few years she’s been in the media.
Danielle Cohn was born and raised in Florida but moved to Los Angeles, California when her successes on social media began to rise. Rumors have spread about her being able to buy her family and herself a Los Angeles home at just 14 years old for around $1.4 million.
One of her tactics for becoming more popular in the entertainment industry was hiding her age! No one truly knew how old she was for a period of time, despite her posting suggestive posts on social media and older boyfriends.
Danielle has been a controversial star in the media, tricking her fans into believing she was married and pregnant, hiding her real age, and looking way older than she actually is.
Danielle Cohn in the Influencer World
Danielle Cohn started gaining popularity from her videos on the video-sharing app, Musica.ly, back in 2016. She started lip-syncing to songs, just as any kid did back in the day, except Danielle actually started getting a lot of followers in a short period of time.
Cohn got really good at editing videos on the app, and soon enough, the young girl started getting sponsored video opportunities. Within a few months, Danielle acquired a million followers and was promised $400 to $500 for every sponsored post she agreed to.
For a young girl, that sure is a ton of money!
Her mom was supportive of her gaining so much popularity on social media, and ended up quitting her job to move to Los Angeles with her daughter. Ultimately, the family decided on moving to California in order to get more business opportunities through Danielle’s status and take her Musica.ly career to the next level.
More opportunities ended up coming her way, and she was getting invited to events with bigger stars. Danielle’s influencer status was solidified by the family’s move to Los Angeles, and before she knew it, she was getting brand sponsorships left and right.
Within the first year of living in Los Angeles, Danielle was able to score partnerships with Target, Live Nation, and Samsung, all while gaining more followers by the minute.
Danielle also began to dabble in the music industry and debuted her single, “Marilyn Monroe”, in 2017. The video to her first single now has over 14 million views on YouTube.
Danielle started to post questionable pictures on social media, making her seem much older than she actually was, and her content started to be quite mature for her age. Her mother and manager, Jennifer Archambault, started getting criticism about her daughter’s confusing content.
Cohn shared a lot about her personal life online, including her relationship with 18-year-old Sebastian Topete, and people really started to dig deep about how old the girl really was. Skeptics found old yearbooks that showed Danielle in 4th grade during the 2015-2016 school year.
To make matters more confusing, Danielle posted a photo of her then-boyfriend, Mikey Tua, kissing her stomach suggesting that she was pregnant. She also teased on social media that the couple was actually married.
The pregnancy announcement did end up being a prank, and her mother/manager stated that the marriage tease was “only clickbait”.
Danielle currently has over 4.6 million followers on Instagram and 18.3 million followers on TikTok.
Danielle’s Home in Los Angeles
Danielle Cohn supposedly bought her first home at just 14 years old in Los Angeles for approximately $1.4 million (although we don’t really know if she was actually 14 years old- some people say she was 12!)
The teen shared a house tour video on her YouTube channel in 2018, in which she shows off her big room, her nice balcony facing a massive backyard pool, and does a sponsored ad for Poshmark.
Danielle posted a new YouTube video of her upgraded home in April of 2020. Her new house was bought for $4 million and features a nice pool, marble kitchen, giant staircase, and a beautiful view!
