Emma Chamberlain and Role Model: 3 years on the down-low
The media influencer and the performer kept their relationship mostly private until their red-carpet debut at the Vanity Fair Oscars party in March 2022.
Shortly after, Chamberlain appeared in Role Model's music video for the song 'Never Let You Go'.
The video was billed as a 'soft launch' of their relationship, and the camera followed Tucker and Emma as they strolled through Brooklyn, though her face was never shown.
However, it wasn't until February of this year that the two stars confirmed their relationship in a joint interview with GQ for a special Valentine's Day edition.
Early stages of the romance
The pair first communicated in 2020, when the music artist sent her a DM after seeing a TikTok video of the media personality twerking to a Dayglow song.
Speaking with the outlet, Pillsbury recalled being surprised by the clip.
He added, "For some reason - I don't know why, had nothing to do with the twerking, I'm not a f***ing creep - but it showed her personality. I feel like I'm good at reading people through a screen," as reported by Daily Mail.
Emma and Tucker's first date in LA
Before deciding to go on a date and meet up in person, the two messaged each other for two months. The date took place at Emma's house in Los Angeles.

Emma stated, "'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."
"That used to be my mentality," she continued. "I'm protecting this at all costs and not letting anybody see it. But that's not fun at all."
"It’s not f***ing fun. And what's life about? Having f***ing fun, okay? S**t should just be f***ing fun! Why stop yourself from doing that?" she wondered.
The musician and the media personality have not yet made any public statements regarding their breakup.
