Who is Claire Abbott?
Claire Abbott was born on 22 January 1998, in Toronto, Ontario Canada, and is a former YouTube and Instagram personality, best known from rising to fame online during her teenage years, mainly following posting several photos of herself in a bikini. She is also noted for her sudden disappearance from the online world without any explanation.
The Net Worth of Claire Abbott
As of early-2020, Claire Abbott’s net worth is estimated to be over $1 million, earned through a successful career in social media. During the peak of her fame, she was earning advertising revenue through the many followers she had on YouTube.
She was also gaining online opportunities on Instagram, through the form of sponsored posts and the like. However, since her inactivity, her earnings have stalled and it is not known if she’ll continue to build on her initial wealth.
Early Life and Online Beginnings
Claire grew up in Toronto, and at a young age aspired to become a singer. She began writing songs and poems as a child which she continued as she grew up. During high school, she was often seen in sports events, as she was a cheerleader for her school.
While she lived relatively out of the spotlight for most of her youth, things changed sometime in 2012 when she began posting photos on her Instagram account.
Several of the photos where of herself in a bikini, and she quickly gained a significant following thanks to her attractive looks. She used this initial fame as a platform to launch an online music career, creating a YouTube channel on which she posted cover songs. She also posted some of her original poems and some of her musical creations.
Rise to Fame
During the same year, Abbott made a video of one of her original songs called “Fighter”, which gained hundreds of thousands of views on the platform. A lot of people complimented her singing voice, as well as how she looked very attractive.
She began increasing her influence, creating accounts on Twitter and Facebook to gain more followers. As she continued uploads, she gained a steady following. Eventually, she expanded her content and began doing various fashion-related posts too, making videos about fashion, and beauty advice. Her Instagram reached over 500,000 followers, one of the reasons for her success being her consistent posting.
During the peak of her online career, she was featured in the magazine “Maxim”, which gave a lot more exposure to her channel and Instagram account, as it was shared thousands of times.
Then things changed as, without any warning, she began deleting her videos on her YouTube channel, then deactivated all of her social media accounts, deleting most of her photos. Only her fan page on Facebook remained, and it was inactive for some years. Due to a lack of information, many of her fans speculated on her disappearance.
One of the more popular stories regarding her disappearance was that Claire disliked the fact that she was becoming popular just based on her looks, and wanted people to appreciate her music ability more.
She wanted people to take her seriously, and became frustrated when all they were asking for were photos of her. Others stated that some nude photos of her surfaced online, so she deleted all of her accounts out of embarrassment. There was also one occasion when she posted a photo of herself spending time with social media star Dan Bilzerian.
Dan rose to fame online showcasing his luxurious lifestyle, which often consisted of tropical vacations, luxury cars, luxury yachts, and beautiful models. He’s been known to be very liberal with the display of his wealth, earning a lot of money from success in poker.
He had also grown-up in a wealthy family, as his father worked in Wall Street. He was named the “Instagram Playboy”, and it was speculated that Claire’s association with him may have attracted a lot of online bullies as well as trolls who wanted to pull her down from her friendship with the celebrity.
Mental Health Issues and Resurgence
The most likely cause of Abbott’s disappearance is her struggle with mental health issues. When she was very active online, she posted a photo of herself at a hospital, declaring that she had just taken treatment, because she was suffering from severe depression and an anxiety disorder.
This photo was taken in October 2013 at Sunnybrook Hospital. I had recently been diagnosed with Major Depressive…
The doctors also told her that she was borderline bipolar, and this meant that she could have extreme mood swings. She had been dealing with the issue for a year before her disappearance.
In 2019 she returned to Instagram, and began posting photos once more. She had become much slimmer, and was showcasing a body that had been frequently trained in the gym. She declared that she was now a model and was back on the internet, also that she was no longer depressed, and is happy. While she doesn’t post as often as she used to, she seemed to have got over the issue of her association with Bilzerian whom she calls a friend.
She posted a photo of them together, along with other photos often revealing her fit body and some of her assets. She has yet to regain the popularity she once had, as she only has over 5,000 followers on the site. Some people don’t believe that it’s her account, as the way this new account posts isn’t similar to her older accounts. It felt more like a fan was posting on the site, and was using her previous fame to gain attention.
Claire has been romantically connected to Dan Bilzerian, though she has iterated that she is just friends with her. Dan is not known to have long term relationships or dedicated partners as seen from his online lifestyle. She loves sports and music, spending most of her time trying to develop her musical skills.
