Emma Chamberlain and Role Model — whose real name is Tucker Pillsbury — officially “hard launched” their relationship on Valentine’s Day in 2023, but called it quits months later.

They were first romantically linked in 2020, but kept things quiet until making their red carpet debut at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in March 2023. An E! News report from October 2023 revealed that the duo had split.

Throughout her time int he public eye, Emma was honest about keeping her romantic relationships to herself — until she started dating Tucker.

“[I don’t show] very personal details of my life that are rapidly changing,” Emma told W Magazine in June 2019. “For example, I don’t like to give too many details on very, very personal aspects of my relationships with my family or friends. I don’t like to show too much of that. There’s a line for me, and I like to keep things very light, nothing serious.”

The YouTuber continued, “I don’t know if I would ever have a public relationship, ever. And this is not coming from experience in any way; this is coming from morals. I’m speaking from what would feel right. Breakups alone are absolutely the most f–king awful thing that exist. Why would you want other people to be heartbroken with you? I can’t imagine that. And also, I don’t like seeing other people’s relationships. It’s boring, and it’s gross.”

During their GQ interview from February 2023, Emma acknowledged these past comments.

“I know that people are going to be like, ‘Emma, you’re a f–king hypocrite,’ because I always said this is something I will never do,” she sadi. “There’s parts of our relationship that are going to be private forever, and those things we keep sacred. But I don’t think we need to be secret anymore. It’s just like, I’m over that s–t.”

Tucker, for his part, spoke candidly about the love he had for Emma during a separate interview with GQ from April 2022.

“We are both the most open with each other, ever. Our dynamic just works,” he explained at the time. “She’s the most talkative human being on the earth, and I’m shy. We are both not confrontational, which makes me think like that would cause its set of problems, but it works for us. We know what each other is thinking without speaking.”
