Family & Personal Life

B. Artis White was born on October 16, 2000, in Canton, Michigan, United States. He has an older sister and a younger brother named Beniah. He often creates videos with his brother, and both his sister and father have made occasional appearances in his videos. B.

His favorite artist is Canadian rapper Drake, whom he believes “can do no wrong.”


B. Artis White dated fellow TikTok star Princess Cherry, also known as Cherry Hunt. He had a crush on her even before they started dating, and he openly shared this with his fans in a Q&A video. They first met in person during a TikTok event in Atlanta, Cherry’s hometown, and immediately clicked. Their fans shipped them as “Berry.” Contrary to allegations that their relationship was solely for social media clout, they stated that they were genuinely serious about each other and even lived together like a married couple.

However, their long-distance relationship began to take a toll on B. Artis’ basketball aspirations as he struggled to balance sports, education, and the relationship. Unfortunately, he did not openly express the stress he was under, and their relationship started to deteriorate. They stopped talking to each other until B. Artis later apologized to Cherry through a voicemail. He even drove to Atlanta to apologize to her family members. Eventually, they came together for a video on Cherry’s YouTube channel titled “LET’S TALK ABOUT IT…WHAT HAPPENED W B.ARTIS & CHERRY?” In the video, they explained to their fans what went wrong between them and dispelled any speculations. B. Artis publicly apologized for not being vocal about his feelings, while Cherry apologized for expressing her anger on the internet, which caused the issue to become public and blown out of proportion.
