Early life and family
Payton J. Moormeier was born on 28 July 2003, in St. Mary’s, Georgia USA, so his zodiac sign is Leo, and he holds American nationality. His father’s name is Chris Addario, but he left the family when Payton was around four years old. His mother’s name is Joanne, andsShe takes care about Payton and his sister Faith as a single mom. For several years Payton lived with his sister and his mom in North Carolina, but at the beginning of 2019 he moved to Los Angeles to pursue his online career.
However, in a couple of months he missed his family so badly that he returned home. Even not hugging his mom every morning was very depressing and stressful for Payton, so he felt really uncomfortable, that he was losing himself. Since November 2019 he again lives in North Carolina. He has recently shared that he has made some new good friends, and spent some quality time with them and his family.
Payton is a student of his local North Carolina high school. He is matriculating in 2021, but hasn’t shared any plans on his further education yet.
Payton started his online career as a content creator in 2016, by uploading dancing and lip sync videos onto his Musical.ly profile. On 29 April 2017 his profile was verified on the platform, as he had attracted a massive following of 100,000 people. In November 2017 the app was purchased by ByteDance, a Chinese company, which turned Musical.ly into TikTok, and Payton moved all his videos to the new platform, not losing his popularity. His account has attracted over 3.3 million followers and over 10 million views. He is still posting new videos on his TikTok account, along with his fellow entertainers such as Jaden Hossler and Anthony Reeves.
In 2018 Payton was invited to attend the Playlist Live event in Orlando.
YouTube vlogging and posting on Instagram
Payton’s other endeavor was his YouTube channel, which he hasn’t updated much since November 2019, although posting seven videos from the day he started his channel on 10 May 2017. Even though the number of videos is miserable, his profile has almost a million subscribers, who are still patiently waiting for new videos from him. In his video “Why I haven’t been posting *emotional*” which Payton posted on 19 November 2019, he explained that he had hard times while moving to Los Angeles and back to North Carolina, so he was too devastated and depressed to post anything on his account.
He promised to post another video soon, and the next day uploaded a video of himself going to the grocery store. He hasn’t uploaded any new videos since then, even though he promised to be consistent with new content on YouTube, saying he would be posting one video a week. The most popular video on his channel is entitled “WHAT I LOOK FOR IN GIRLS”, which has over 1.4 million views.
Payton is very active on his Instagram though. He has recently cleaned his main verified Instagram account, leaving only two sets of photos there, so 3.5 million subscribers are now waiting for what he is going to post next. He also has another account on the social media platform, on which he posts funny pictures, selfies, and manages it as his backup account which has over 540,000 subscribers.
