Rise to Fame

Like any other average teenager, he was just going about his everyday routine when one day his picture went viral on the internet. He was clicked when he was working part-time as a cashier in a Target store near his house. The picture was shared by a teenage girl on her Twitter account and quickly spread like wildfire. People started looking for his social media accounts and soon, his accounts were flooded with followers and friend requests.

In no time, Alex became an internet sensation and when he came to know about it, he was astounded. However, when his newfound stardom started to invade his personal space, he knew he had to do something about it. He dropped out of high school and hired a manager to handle the modeling, acting, and singing offers he had started receiving from various media houses.

Career

Despite denying rumors of establishing a career in the entertainment field, there have been numerous rumors about Alex starring in movies and TV shows. He kept receiving hundreds of tweets every day from his fans, and one of those tweets was from talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, who invited him to appear on her show. Alex gladly accepted the offer, placing him in the limelight as Ellen’s show is one of the most popular TV shows in America.

On the show, Alex came across as a shy and awkward teenager, which made him even more popular among girls as they found that characteristic attractive. However, his fame was short-lived as he did nothing to sustain it. After a few months, the buzz surrounding him faded away, but he still enjoys a huge fan following across his social media accounts.

Alex had a YouTube channel back in 2014, but he closed it down for several reasons. He has now restarted his channel under the name ‘Alex Lee’ and posts his vlogs. He occasionally appears in the videos of other popular YouTube stars.

Personal Life & Family

Alex was born to Marci and Eric Lee in Texas on January 21, 1998. He spent most of his time in Texas before moving to Los Angeles when he became famous. His family is very conservative and has yet to fully accept his fame. They are also concerned about his safety, as he often receives death threats and hate letters.

He met Kelsey Carpenter, a struggling actress, soon after moving to Los Angeles. They both lived in the same building and started dating right away. Kelsey often features in Alex’s videos and photos on Instagram.

Interestingly, there was a time when rumors about Alex being gay started circulating on social media. Although Alex did not pay attention to the rumors, he officially announced his relationship status with Kelsey, putting an end to the speculation about his sexuality.
