Who is Emma Chamberlain’s alleged boyfriend, role model?

Emma Chamberlain launched her YouTube channel in June 2017 and tried to create a beauty vlog, via Distractify, but the videos didn’t really take off. At least not until a haul video of her unpacking her groceries at a dollar store (of all places) went viral. The viewers admired her style, her energy, her relaxed and authentic way of speaking and above all her closeness. Here was a teenager who spoke honestly and humorously about pimples and period cramps as well as fashion. She is self-deprecating and raw, engaging and sincere, often with a potty mouth.

After years of posting videos weekly and developing her signature editing style, Chamberlain has built an empire with 11.8 million YouTube subscribers and 16.1 million Instagram followers. She also partnered with Louis Vuitton in January 2020 for POPSUGAR, and owns her own coffee line called Chamberlain Coffee.

Her fans also follow her every step of the way and are dying to know who Chamberlain is dating – despite her evasive demeanor, she’s very reserved about her personal life. “I don’t want to give too many details on very, very personal aspects of my relationships with my family or friends,” she told W Magazine. “I don’t know if I would ever have a public relationship.” Still, fans are pretty sure she’s dating musician Role Model. Let’s find out more about him and their relationship.

Role Model’s music career is on the rise

The young man Emma Chamberlain’s fans take for her boyfriend is the singer-songwriter named Role Model. According to Your Tango, his real name is Tucker Pillsbury, and he’s been slowly climbing the corporate ladder since releasing his debut EP, Arizona in the Summer, in 2017.

One of Pillsbury’s biggest influences was the late LA rapper Mac Miller, and amazingly, Miller was a big part of Pillsbury’s success. The rapper reached out to Pillsbury on Instagram after hearing one of his songs. “It was when he and Ariana [Grande] “We broke up and he told me he was involved with ‘Stolen Car,'” Pillsbury told GQ. “He kicked me out and my career took off.”

The relationship led to a recording deal with Interscope, and Pillsbury has since played Coachella and embarked on a world tour. He also released his full-length album, Rx, in April, which appears to be all about his relationship with Chamberlain. When GQ asked what his (unnamed) girlfriend – who he admitted is his first ever – thought of his album, he said: “I don’t know how to talk about relationships but she knows it’s just about she goes.”

The musician also has an interest in acting and told iD, “I wanted to direct and produce films” before finding his love for music. He even auditioned for the role of Elliot on the HBO hit “Euphoria.” He is also close friends with musician Este Haim because they both have type 1 diabetes. He told People, “She was like a damn mother to me.”

Fans have their reasons to believe role model Emma Chamberlain is boyfriend

Although neither has been on record, it seems clear that Emma Chamberlain is dating Role Model and there are plenty of leads. The rumor has been around since at least June 2020, when the Instagram fan account emmas_car_scissors posted a series of photos of Chamberlain hanging out with him and other friends.

In August 2020, Chamberlain confirmed in a now-deleted TikTok video on Your Tango that she’s in a relationship, though she wouldn’t say who with. When a photographer asked her if she would ever date any of her fans, Role Model, who was part of her entourage, yelled, “Talk about it!” That was enough for fans to speculate — especially when their parents did, too followed his Instagram.

Fans had more proof in a September 2021 video of Role Model in concert. Similar to the recent worldwide analysis of Harry Styles and Chris Pine’s “Spit,” some fans thought Role Model blew Chamberlain a kiss while he was performing on his show. You don’t even have to blink to miss it, but fans don’t need a lot of proof.

The biggest proof so far is the couple’s red carpet appearance at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in March and an April interview Role Model did with GQ. He’s been open about his girlfriend, who “is an insane influence and people are constantly watching her every step” — but has never outright said it’s Chamberlain. And Chamberlain generally dislikes discussing relationships. “I don’t like seeing other people’s relationships,” she told W Magazine. “It’s boring and it’s disgusting.”
