TikTok has been the catalyst for stars like Charli D’Amelio, Khaby Lame and Addison Rae. One of the most popular TikTokers around is @Piperrockelle, but who is she and how did she rack up so many fans on the social media platform?
Who is Piper Rockelle and why is she famous?
Piper Rockelle is an American social media personality, singer, dancer and actress. Her first notable role was Sky in the web series Mani between 2017 and 2018, and Chicken Girls in 2018.
Piper then re-started her TikTok channel in 2020 after her previous account was banned, growing her audience through her catchy dance videos which she often shoots alongside her friends and family. It is not clear, though, why her first account ran into problems, or when she initially joined the platform.
Piper also runs a successful YouTube channel where she films funny trends like doing the opposite of what her parents say for 24 hours, turning her house into a trampoline park and playing Squid Game in real life. The YouTuber also uploads her own music videos onto the platform.

Piper Rockelle has an estimated net worth of $2 million (£1.5 Million) in 2022.
Piper is thought to earn money through brand sponsorships and production opportunities on her social channels. She often posts about brands like Aeropostale, and is also a brand ambassador for “age appropriate” makeup brand Petite ‘N Pretty.
The social media star has also launched her own merchandise brand, Bby by Piper Rockelle, and is currently touring her music around the US, UK and Canada.
How old is Piper Rockelle?
Piper Rockelle was born on 21st August 2007 in Atlanta, Georgia, making her 15-years-old in 2022.
Piper does not know her biological father, and lives with her mother. She is, however, very close with her grandparents, who are presumably from her mother’s side.
The tiny YouTube star has two brothers, Tyler Ray Hill and Hunter Ray Hill. Their dates of birth and ages are currently unknown.
Who is Piper Rockelle's boyfriend?
At just 15-years-old, it’ll be a surprise to learn that Piper Rockelle does in fact have a boyfriend, Lev Cameron - a 16-year-old fellow YouTuber and singer.
It may be even more surprising to realise that their relationship is more than a high-school fling: the pair have actually been dating for nearly two years, beginning to date in May 2020 (When Piper would have been 13, and Lev would have been 14).
Three Interesting Facts About Piper Rockelle:
From her petite stature to taking her fame off the web, as well as a feud with another famous star, Piper Rockelle is much more than a TikTok star.
1) She’s a pint-sized talent
Piper Rockelle is a pint-sized talent, if we’ve ever seen one. The internet sensation is reported to stand at just 4ft11, that’s the same height as Ariana Grande.
Another site suggests the teen singer-come-actress is actually 5ft 2, around the same height as Kim Kardashian. Either way, good things come in small packages.
2) She’s a magazine star
Despite Piper Rockelle dominating online platforms like TikTok and Instagram, the star has also taken her fame off the web, and covered magazines.
The latest magazine for Piper Rockelle to have appeared on is Girl’s Life, which is set to hit newsstands later this month for their February/March edition.
3) Pink accused Piper Rockelle’s mum of “exploiting” her
You might remember the ordeal in August where Pink told her Twitter followers it “isn’t okay” that Piper’s mum takes photos of the now 15-year-old wearing a bikini and shares them on social media.
The 41-year-old mum of two tweeted last year: “How many kids like Piper Rockelle are being exploited by their parents? And at what point do the rest of us say … ‘this isn’t okay for a 13 yr old to be posing in a bikini whilst her MOTHER takes the photo?!?!’”
Piper has since clapped back at the older artist, pointing out that Pink was actually a teenager when she joined the girl-group Basic Instinct.Featured Image Credit: Instagram: @piperrockelle
