It’s official, you guys, Charli and Dixie D’Amelio are no longer part of the TikTok Hype House squad. For those who missed it, rumors first started swirling that social media stars left the influencer squad back in early April after fans started to notice that the dynamic sister duo hadn’t been featured on the 19-member house’s social media for a few weeks. Well, now, the girls finally confirmed their departure from the group and explained why it was time to say goodbye.

“When the Hype House started to become more of a business, Charli and Dixie stepped away from that aspect. While their businesses are separate, their friendships with the members continue,” a rep for the D’Amelio sisters told The Hollywood Reporter about why they decided to take a step back.

Speculation that the siblings left the house ramped up a few days before their statement appeared in THR. People were quick to question Charli and Dixie after the Hype House’s TikTok account posted a new video, which included all the group’s members except the two girls. A video captured by the Instagram account TikTok Room, showed fans flooding the comments section with questions about their whereabouts. Previously, an alleged Instagram DM from a fan sent to the TikTok Room account showed that the Hype House Instagram had seemingly not posted any content from Charli and Dixie in a few weeks. Naturally, fans started to investigate further and found that the last photo including the sisters was actually posted months ago.

Some people believe that the girls’ departure was a result of Charli’s split from fellow Hype House member Chase Hudson. As fans know, on April 14, 2020, the TikTok-famous couple took to Instagram Stories and confirmed that they had broken up. Other social media users were convinced that the sisters left after the Thomas Petrou and Daisy Keech drama. For those who don’t know, back in March, Daisy uploaded a tell-all video and slammed the Hype House, claiming that she had been “disrespected, degraded and used” by Thomas and Chase, who allegedly pushed her out of all the decision making processes and never named her as one of the cofounders, despite the fact that she put down a large deposit on the Los Angeles-based mansion. After her video went viral, Thomas responded and denied all of her claims.

Despite all the rumors, Charli and Dixie’s team stated that their decision to distance themselves from the Hype House was strictly for business.
