‘Without You’ singer Charlton Kenneth Jeffrey Howard, professionally known as The Kid LAROI, is one of the fasting rising stars in the music industry. In 2020 alone, the singer released an album and has done various collaborations with the likes of Lil Tjay, Juice Wrld, Machine Gun Kelly, Marshmello, Justin Bieber, and recently, with Miley Cyrus. He recently also performed on Saturday Night Live with Miley Cyrus.

The singer is in a relationship with a 16-year-old TikTok star Katarina Demetriades. They have been together for almost nine months, and speculations about their engagement have surfaced in recent days. 

Is The Kid LAROI Engaged?

Neither party has confirmed their engagement. However, both the rapper and the TikToker seem to drop hints now and then. 

A week ago, Demetriades posted a series of pictures on her Instagram. The ‘Let Her Go’ singer replied with a ring and a heart emoji. 

This is not the only time he has associated the ring emoji with his girlfriend. Back in January, he posted a picture with Demetriades and captioned it with a ring emoji, among others.

While the ring emoji might simply be his way of showing his commitment to the 16-year-old, one can’t help but wonder if there are any engagement plans budding between the young lovebirds. 

How They Met

The rapper recently talked about his relationship with The Kyle & Jackie O Show podcast. He agreed with the radio host Jackie ‘O and her opinions about Demetriades — the TikToker being the most beautiful girl they have ever seen. 

He revealed the duo met via a mutual friend when the singer came from Australia to Los Angeles. Kid LAROI had just released his first mixtape, which was kind of against the concept of love by its name itself. He confessed he wasn’t in the mood for love, but categorized his experience as something one couldn’t control.

Ironically, the singer fell head over heels with the TikTok star. The singer agreed with another host from the podcast, Kyle Sandilands, when he said that love comes at the strangest moment when one isn’t watching. 

The 17-year-old also opened up about his relationship on the Zach Sang Show. He confessed that this was the first time he has ever been in love. Before his relationship with Demetriades, he had been hurt by girls who had changed his attitude towards love. 

He had liked Demetriades, but he tried to fight off the feelings because of his previous experiences. Love came to him most weirdly and unexpectedly, which eventually made him give in, and now he is in a happy relationship. 

He also joked that he hopes this relationship would work out. Otherwise, he would have to make a whole new album like his recent one, dedicated against the concept of love. 

Regardless of him now being in a healthy relationship, Kid LAROI confessed that his previous experiences had scarred him. He still has trust issues and a hard time letting his guard down. 

But now, he has a positive outlook on relationships and is working on himself to be a better person.
