Who Is Omer Fedi? 5 Things To Know About Addison Rae’s Rumored Boyfriend
TikToker Addison Rae is one of the internet’s hottest influencers since her rise to stardom in 2019, and fans are quite invested in her love life.
For almost a year, she left everyone confused with her on-again-off-again relationship with former Sway House TikToker, Bryce Hall. The couple finally made it official in fall last year, but they broke things off for good in March, and no one knows why.
After their split, Rae was rumored to be involved with YouTube star Logan Paul and rapper Jack Harlow — but nothing ever came of these speculations.
Recently, Rae was rumored to be dating Machine Gun Kelly’s guitarist, Omer Fedi. Speculations about the two involved began when Rae was spotted with the 21-year-old guitarist at MGK’s pop-up concert in California.
The rumors intensified after Rae posted a story on July 31, which featured a silhouette of two people kissing each other. Fedi also posted the same video on his account, which was enough to get people talking.
Everyone is curious about the TikToker’s rumored new boyfriend, so here are five facts about him.
Fedi Knows How To Make Hits
Fedi is an Israeli guitarist, songwriter, and producer based in L.A. The 21-year-old made waves in the music industry by co-writing, producing, and acting on several major hits, including 'Mood' by 24kGoldn and Iann Dior, which surpassed a billion streams on Spotify.
He co-wrote and co-produced The Kid LAROI’s ‘Without You,’ which snagged the No.1 spot on Billboard’s Hot Rock & Alternative Songs charts and April’s No. 1 song in America, ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ by Lil Nas X.
Fedi’s Distinct Hair
Fedi definitely knows how to stand out from the crowd. The musician dyed his hair siren red last year, making it so hard to miss.
During an interview with Billboard, he explained that his inspiration was Kurt Cobain, a '90s grunge icon.
He elaborated that he wanted to invoke Cobain’s style, and as for his hair, no one else had hair like his, so he decided it might as well be him.
Fedi’s Musical Inspirations
The musician's distinct sound is “piercing, melodic, muscular-but-melancholy riffs laid over super-charged rock and/or trap beats,“ a staple in modern pop.
Fedi claims he owes his style to hip-hop and jazz and cites artists like Jimi Hendrix and his favorite band and guitar player, John Frusciante of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, as his inspirations.
He also credits his father, a studio and session musician whom he reveals is an accomplished drummer in Israel.
Fedi Wants To Impress the Ladies
Fedi could have become an accomplished drummer like his father, but it appears the artist had other things in his mind.
He started on the drums but switched to guitar after seeing an episode of Nickelodeon’s Drake & Josh, in which Drake slings a six-string.
He also explained that guitar players got more girls than drummers.
Fedi’s Credits His Father for His Success
The musician credits his father, Asher, for expanding his musical universe and instilling a work ethic and ambitions in him.
When we were jamming, he would always be like, “Oh, you have to practice this, and you have to do this...” He would never be like, “Nice,” which I appreciated!
His father moved his family to Los Angeles when Fedi was 16 to give the talented musician who plays piano, drums, bass and varied other stringed instruments the greatest opportunities possible.
It was definitely difficult for Fedi, who quips that he struggled to learn English while in Israel.
But he always trusted that he would meet a musician who would give him an opportunity, which he did, and now, he is well on his way to making a name for himself.
