Young hearts are breaking across the world today because we got word that Stranger Things cool girl Millie Bobby Brown has found herself a beau!
All right, so who is this mouth breather that managed to win 13-year-old Millie’s affections? His name is Jacob Sartorius, a 15-year-old singer-songwriter who may or may not be the younger version of J. Beibs.
How do we know it’s real? A source revealed that Millie first posted a photo with Jacob on her Instagram Story last October, and they have since exchanged several flirty comments on social media. Eagle-eyed fans were quick to point out that Millie liked one of Jacob’s tweets on Jan 8 that read, “just another day w you on my mind.”
She later shared a photo on Instagram of herself cuddling with a teddy bear that Jacob gave her. “Thanks for the bear,” she captioned the Jan 12 post. He responded in the comments section, writing, “Of course,” with a matching heart emoji.
1) His claim to fame is a pop song called “Chapstick”
Here’s the refrain: “You made a reservation, but all we need are 2 lips, 1 kiss/Nothing between us but Chapstick.”
A real Romeo indeed.
2) But before the fame, he was a viral sensation
Rolf Jacob Sartorius began his career with a few sensational lip-sync covers, during the glory days of musical video app Musical.ly.
3) At 15, he has already charted on the Billboard Hot 100.
Sartorius’ first single, titled “Sweatshirt” and released in May of 2016, peaked at No. 90 on the marquee Billboard songs chart. His first EP The Last Text released Jan. 20, 2017, which was followed by Left Me Hangin’, which was released in Sept.
4) He has a HUGE following on social media
Jacob Sartorius’ Instagram account boasts over eight million followers, his twitter account has 1.5 million and he’s got almost three million subscribers on YouTube. (Even Justin Beiber follows him on Instagram!)
5) He is embarking on a headlining tour
“The Left Me Hangin” crooner is actually heading on the road yesterday (Jan 18) for the North American leg of his headlining Left Me Hangin Tour with Zach Clayton, Hayden Summerall, and Luna Blaise. He will also play four shows in Europe in April, along with a U.K. leg of the tour.
The teens have already been on vacation together, too. They were spotted celebrating New Year’s Eve with Millie’s family at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
Ah young love <3
