In a now-viral video, TikTok user Charlie Blythe described her parents’ “actual rich person behaviour,” and in doing so, unknowingly set off an Internet scavenger hunt, apparently.
In fact, just a few hours after posting the video on TikTok, Charlie stated that some viewers had already posted private information about her, and she asked her fellow TikTok fans to respect her privacy.
Charlie Talked About Her Luxurious Childhood
Charlie, who uses she and they pronouns, talked about what it was like to grow up in a wealthy household in a TikTok video on Thursday, Dec. 3rd.
She said in the video, “My house was so big I had to tell my dad dinner was ready by using the phone intercom system, and all of those dinners were three-course meals prepared by a private chef. We had at least, like, seven employees in the house at all times, including security guards, and my mom always was terrified that there would be an inside job and I’d be kidnapped.”
It seems that the staff in the house catered for everything the family wanted. Charlie said, “I never had to go to the grocery store as a kid. There would be a pad of paper in the kitchen. If I wrote something down, it would just appear the next day.”
And apparently, commercial air travel wasn’t luxurious enough for Charlie’s dad. Charlie revealed, “One time we took a 30-minute commercial flight from Boston to Nantucket, and my dad hated the commercial flying experience so much, despite the fact that state police helped us through it, he had a private plane meet us in Nantucket to take us back in Boston.”
Charlie is a singer with the synth-pop single “Toothache” on Spotify and also revealed that she used to live in four different houses after her parents got divorced, and when her parents’ split made the news, internet comments “were filled with men counting down the years until [she] turned 18.”
For most of Charlie’s childhood years, she had to keep her identity under the wraps on the web. She said, “I wasn’t allowed to put my last name on social media because people would track me down and kidnap me.” She captioned the TikTok video, “Oh, how I miss living in constant fear of being abducted because of my name.”

Information About Charlie Got Leaked
Four hours after Charlie posted the video, with her cat “Rocket” in hand, posted another video to tell TikTok users that she turned off the comments on the viral “rich person behaviour” video.
She said, “For one, some people were saying some really ignorant and hurtful things about things that I can’t control, and I hope you all can understand that. Second of all, you all are good. You’re fast. You were finding my parents and my birth name. And, well, most of you. Some of you were incorrect, I hate to tell you. And I know I kind of asked for it, but I just… I wasn’t comfortable having that out there, so…”
That said, some TikTok users sent Charlie encouraging and supportive messages. She said in the video, “I’m trying to do my best to stay grounded and understand where I came from. My life is weird, my life is complicated, and I’m trying my best.”

Charlie Stated That Some People Took Things “Too Far”
Later that night, Charlie posted another video on the same topic, and said, “I was really kind of overwhelmed by everything I found on my profile.”
“And I cannot fathom that that video has over a million views, and I’m kind of regretting it because people are taking it very far and posting all my personal info, which… I get it. I asked for it. But I wasn’t expecting that. And all of the kinda paranoia I was talking about is coming back.”
Charlie went on to say, “I don’t want to take it down because I think that stuff is important to, like, kinda laugh at. But it’s kind of made me upset, I’m sorry. So please be respectful of my privacy, and yeah, I appreciate all the people messaging me, reaching out, and being nice.”
Moral of the story: There’s probably a reason for a TikTok star to be using a fake name!
