Influencers have become a vital part of the social media landscape, with many young people following their every trend, and attending the Coachella festival is one of them.
However, one of the influencers, Loren Gray, has revealed that many of her colleagues are not as truthful about attending Coachella as they let on.
Gray is a famous TikTok influencer who has amassed over 54.4 million followers on the platform. In a recent video, she revealed that many influencers who claim to be attending Coachella are not actually there.
She began her TikTok video by stating that she would be talking about Coachella.
“Okay, I hadn’t personally seen anyone talk about this, it’s hilarious and I have to share it because it’s Coachella. Coachella is like the influencer Olympics, right? it’s a place to be,” she said.
Then she further moved on, revealing that most of the influencers fake going to Coachella and go to the desert to get the photograph instead.
“But most influencers or a lot of influencers don’t even go to Coachella and I think this is such a wild fact,” she revealed, “They’ll go out to the desert. Get like an Airbnb, stay with someone, get their outfits, get their hair, get their makeup.”
She shared how the influencer fake the photographs in the Coachella-like background by posing for their photos be like: “Post up ‘Coachella Day 1, mn [pouting],’ ‘Coachella Day 2, ehh [posing].’”

She explained that many influencers do not have wristbands and do not attend the festival. Instead, they drive out to the desert to take photos, create content, and then back home.
“And they don’t go to the festival. They don’t have wristbands,” she continued. “They just drive their little butts out to the desert to take Instagram photos, make TikToks, get ready with me’s, whatever. Then they drive back, and that’s it.”
Gray wanted to dispel the illusion that many people have those influencers who were actually at the festival when in reality, they may just be creating content elsewhere.
She also encouraged people not to feel wrong about not attending Coachella, as many of the influencers who claim to be there are not actually present.
“So, if you feel boring and sad because you’re not at Coachella, just know that most of these people aren’t there either.”
Gray ended her TikTok video by suggesting that people should use a Coachella-themed green screen rather than wasting time and money to create content in the desert.
“It’s, like, a very common occurrence that I thought people knew, but I didn’t see anyone talking about it. So, now you know,” she finished. “Before anybody else makes the horrible decision to drive to southern California just for an expensive photo op, save time and money and use a Coachella-themed green screen.”
Fans’ reaction to Loren Gray’s revelations
Gray stated that she has been to the event several times herself and knows the ins and outs of how it works. She also said that many influencers pretend to be at the event to get attention, even though they are not there.
Gray’s revelation caused a stir online, with many fans expressing surprise and disappointment. There are threads on Reddit with the fans’ reactions to her TikTok video.
One of the Reddit users commented on that thread, “That sums up influencers and their social media. I’ll never forget how some influencers go out of their way to pose in a fake private jet rental studio jus to get some likes. Funniest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.”
Some even roasted her as they wrote, “It’s funny because she’s also probably talking about herself.”
In the comment section of that particular TikTok video, too, fans were thankful for the revelation, while other popular TiToker with verified accounts also gave their reactions.
Some of the famous TikToker also commented, one of them was like, “Spill all the tea girl 👏🏽,” while the other commented, “FOR REAL!!!! I didn’t know this and it blew my mind. I gotta go to the actual festival.”
Fake influencers had been exposed before as well
This is not the first instance of such deceitful behavior being brought to light. In 2020, HBO premiered a documentary titled Fake Famous, which exposed how aspiring influencers can use tactics such as buying followers and fabricating a lavish lifestyle to gain popularity.
As reported by Daily Mail, in the documentary, journalist Nick Bilton demonstrated how easy it is to buy followers and likes from websites such as Famoid.com.
For instance, Bilton bought 7,500 followers and 2,500 likes for just $119.60. Although these followers are not genuine, the goal is to give the impression of popularity, which can attract real followers and lucrative sponsorship deals.
To illustrate this point, YouTuber Gabbie Hanna faked a trip to Coachella in 2019 by editing photos of herself and creating fake versions of the festival wristband. She also turned her friend’s house into a fake Airbnb to make it appear that she was staying at a luxury rental.
She later revealed the truth in a YouTube video titled ‘I Faked Going To Coachella,’ citing other influencers who have used similar tactics, such as posing in fake private jets.
DJ Diplo Gets Accused of Giving a Fan STDs amid AIDS Controversy
DJ Diplo has faced multiple accusations of transmitting STDs and AIDS.
American DJ Diplo has recently come under scrutiny as he faces accusations of transmitting sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) to a fan amidst an ongoing AIDS controversy.
During a recent episode of the Let’s Get Into It Podcast, Sloan Hooks interviewed a fan who shared a shocking revelation about her experience with Diplo. The interviewee disclosed she contracted STDs from the DJ.
She explained that Diplo had consistently emphasized his rigorous STD testing regimen, comparing it to that of a star, which led her to believe he was free of infections and subsequently led them to engage in intimate activities without using contraceptives.
Later, when the host inquired how she could be sure that DJ was the one who transmitted the STDs, she explained that he was the only sexual partner with whom she had been intimate without using contraception.
The woman went on to elaborate, revealing that in the beginning, she hesitated to attribute the source of the infection to Diplo because she was apprehensive about his reactions every time she brought up the topic of STDs.
She also shared the details of how she discovered she had chlamydia. She explained that after her first intimate encounter with DJ, she developed a rash on her body and experienced discomfort. It was at that point that she decided to get tested, which led to the diagnosis of an STD.
After the shocking revelation, TheTeaTalk’s official page promptly shared a particular segment of the podcast video.
The caption accompanying the post reads, “Uh gross?! DJ #diplo is allegedly out here taking V cards and giving fans STDs #sloanhooks interviewed a not-so-lucky fan on his #letsgetintoit podcast who details her horrific experience with the famous DJ!”
Upon seeing TheTeaTalk’s post, fans and followers swiftly expressed their opinions in the comment section. One individual remarked, ”I believe her, to be honest.”
Similarly, another commenter shared, “Diplo is well-known in the industry for allegedly targeting young Black women and exerting pressure on them to engage in activities for the sake of their career, often funded by him or for financial gain.”
This is not the first time DJ has faced controversy related to sexual health. Recently, TikTok influencer Shelly Auguste accused the DJ of engaging in unprotected intimacy with multiple girls, including herself, and alleged that he might have transmitted HIV/AIDS to many of them.
Auguste detailed her experiences with Diplo in a viral video of 4 minutes and 19 seconds. She mentioned that about 1 or 2 years ago, she came across the story of a girl who had come forward about being diagnosed with AIDS.
To her dismay, she also recognized that this was the same girl to whom DJ had sent an intimate video. Auguste then speculated that the girl’s AIDS diagnosis might have been a result of her intimate involvement with DJ.
Furthermore, in an October 2020 complaint submitted to the Los Angeles Police Department, a 25-year-old woman accused Diplo of surreptitiously recording sexually explicit videos of her without her consent.

The complaint also made the serious allegation that he intentionally transmitted a sexually transmitted infection to another person.
Back then, Diplo disagreed with the accusations and posted a lengthy message in his defense. However, now he hasn’t addressed the issue of him transmitting STDs to the women.
Are Erin Moriarty and Antony Starr Dating? Rumors Suggest They Are More than Friends
Deuxmoi noted, “They hook up/ have hooked up.”
Erin Moriarty and Antony Starr have been a topic of dating speculation, fueled by a recent sighting that has set the celebrity gossip mill abuzz.
A fan claimed that the pair were spotted sharing lunch at Superba in Hollywood, stating, “erin moriarity and antony starr out to lunch sunday at superba in hollywood.”
In response, the celebrity gossip page Deuxmoi revealed that the duo are more than friends saying, “They hook up/ have hooked up.”

Moriarty and Starr’s dating rumors have been swirling for a few years. Since their joint appearance on the popular superhero series The Boys, fans have wondered whether their on-screen chemistry transcended into a real-life romance.
In 2021, Deuxmoi asserted that the co-stars deliberately kept their alleged relationship under wraps, perhaps to avoid the public eye.
Deuxmoi shared a series of emails that were sent by an anonymous source. The sender ambiguously referred to Starr as a key player on “the current biggest streaming show.”

One Instagram user undertook the role of decoder, indicating that the email was about Moriarty and Starr. Another Instagram user also revealed that the email’s subject, “diabolical gals,” referenced their shared work on The Boys.
Deuxmoi again shared the screenshot of the second email, reportedly from the same anonymous sender. This time, the sender confidently stated that the rumored couple indeed consisted of Moriarty and Starr.
However, the curtain of uncertainty still hangs, as both actors have yet to publicly address the rumors or provide any clarity on their relationship status.
Erin Moriarty’s dating history
Moriarty’s dating history, much like her guarded personal life, remains shrouded in mystery, largely due to her preference for maintaining privacy.
Casting a glance back at 2013, curiosity swirled among fans as rumors circulated regarding a possible romance with fellow American actor Jacob Artist.
The two first crossed paths in Indonesia while collaborating on the indie film After the Dark, also known as The Philosophers.
As their time on set progressed, so did their closeness, sparking speculations about their potential relationship status.
Adding fuel to the fire were Moriarty’s Instagram posts, where she shared numerous snapshots alongside Artist, further fueling romance rumors. However, the images gradually stopped coming after 2014, and it was believed they had parted ways.
In May 2017 that they were once again glimpsed together, suggesting an amicable relationship, yet the nature of their bond remained a mystery.
Moriarty was also rumored to be dating Pedro Pascal. The basis for the dating speculations rested partly on the shared photos they shared on their Instagram profiles, some dating back to 2014.
Among the posts was an image capturing Moriarty sitting next to Pascal in a living room, with a caption affectionately describing him as her “favorite person.” However, they didn’t publicly address the dating rumors.
Bob Menery and Girlfriend Summer Sheekey Back Together despite Break up Drama
“Summer is flying in. She’s back,” Bob Menery announced.
It seems Bob Menery is hung up on one girl only — his longtime on-and-off girlfriend, Summer Sheekey.
The social media personality has now revealed that he is getting back together with his ex-girlfriend, despite previously claiming that she had cheated on him and made his life miserable.
On Sunday night, August 13, 2023, Menery took to his Instagram stories to share a video from a bar where he was with his friends. At the bottom of the video, he wrote, “Good night, heading home. Summer is flying in. She cut a check. We forgave her. She’s back.”
After that story, he posted a couple of other random stories. And then, he shared a screenshot of a message he received from either a friend or a fan, whose name is Gabe Anderson.
The message was a reply to the Instagram story, where he revealed he and Sheekey were dating again. Anderson had written, “That girl cheated on you, manipulated you, and tried to get lawyers involved in your business. What are you doing bro?”

In reply, Menery wrote, “Damn u right.” Likewise, when he shared the screenshot of the message to his story, he added, “Gulp.” And he posted it on his feed as well, where he wrote, “Instagram story only. Forgive and forget? Or streets?”
The comment section of that post was turned off, and as Menery asked people to reply through Instagram stories, friends/fans did the same. Later, the Insta-famous personality shared two more screenshots of messages he received.
The first was from the username @pozpressedsend, who replied, “You have to be [explicit] kidding me. This is a joke, right Bob? You can’t possibly be serious. This person put you into psych rehab and detox. This is a bit. Good one, Bob!”
Menery then clarified this isn’t a joke or a bit, as said by the Instagrammer by writing, “Ain’t no bit. Raw life. But this is what I need to hear.” “You right. I ain’t smart in some areas,” he further added.

And to the above story, one Instagram user replied, “u just horny.” Menery texted back, “Yeeee I am.” And while sharing that screenshot, he added, “Agreed. I took a @RizzPharma too.” Rizz Pharma is a pharmaceutical company for men’s vitality and performance.
Before this, in May 2023, Menery revealed that he was in a legal battle with his ex-girlfriend. At the time, he often poured his frustration and talked about Sheekey’s adultery, despite his legal team advising him not to in fear of defamation.
Nonetheless, he often ignored the suggestions of his legal team and used to say that “truth is a defense.” Likewise, in March 2023, he announced that he would break down his two and a half years relationship with Sheekey.
While making the announcement via an Instagram post, he added that all his time with Sheekey was down the drain. “Don’t want to miss this one. I have a lot to get off my chest. Respect that,” Menery added in the caption.

At the time of that announcement, Menery and Sheekey had recently split for the 17th time. The two began dating in mid-2019, and both believed they were the one for each other. But as time passed, their relationship formed cracks.
Cheating allegations spread across the internet, which led to their break up. However, their break up wouldn’t last long, as they would eventually get back together. And fast forward to now, Menery has again revealed he has forgiven her, and they’re dating again.
