From moving out to Los Angeles on her own and launching her own coffee business, to behind-the-scenes moments from her photoshoots and red carpet events, Emma Chamberlain shares so much of her life on YouTube. Fans know so much about her thanks to her videos, but one thing that keeps them guessing is whether she’s in a relationship or not. For those who ship her with Ethan Dolan, it’s always a bit of a surprise when she’s rumored to be seeing someone else, like TikTok star Aaron Hull. Chamberlain has been friends with him for a while, but fans sometimes wonder whether Emma Chamberlain and Aaron Hull are dating.
On Nov. 7, Chamberlain shared a video titled, "LEARNING HOW TO SKATEBOARD TO IMPRESS A BOY." Since YouTubers are notorious for click-baiting their fans with exaggerated titles, fans were hesitant to believe the video's title at first. However, as soon as the video began, Chamberlain revealed how nervous revealing her crush was making her. "I'm uncomfortable saying this," she said. "I feel like I'm telling my parents something about my life. I like this guy, OK?" Her behavior in the video convinced fans she was being 100% real about her new crush.
Chamberlain described the mystery man as a skateboarder, and thought it would be cool if she learned how to skateboard, too. The star emphasized she was also learning the sport because she was interested in it already (because she would never change anything about herself to please others).
Since Hull is a skateboarder, fans immediately connected the dots and concluded Chamberlain was trying to impress him.
Just weeks before Chamberlain posted the video, she visited her hometown in San Francisco. Although she never confirmed it, fans are convinced Hull tagged along on the trip to meet her parents, too, since he documented a trip to San Francisco on his Instagram story at the same time she was there.
At the time, Hull shared a picture of skyscrapers and it appeared to be a view from his hotel room, and Chamberlain shared a similar image on her IG Story, too.
Fans thought Chamberlain and Hull visiting the city at the same time couldn't be a coincidence.
Following Chamberlain and Hull's rumored weekend getaway, Chamberlain's dad reportedly followed Hull on Instagram and unfollowed Ethan Dolan (Chamberlain's rumored ex), as well as his brother, Grayson.
Chamberlain has yet to address the speculation she's dating Hull, and, sadly, she may never.
In an interview with W Magazine, Chamberlain revealed she was unsure about having a relationship in the spotlight.
“I don’t know if I would ever have a public relationship, ever," Chamberlain said. "And this is not coming from experience in any way; this is coming from morals. I’m speaking from what would feel right."
The star explained she didn't want her fans to be upset if the relationship didn't work out. "Breakups alone are absolutely the most f*cking awful thing that exist. Why would you want other people to be heartbroken with you? I can’t imagine that," Chamberlain revealed.
Chamberlain’s fear of a public breakup is understandable because since then, fans believe the two stars have broken up. In an April 23 episode of her podcast Anything Goes, Chamberlain said there was “one thing” somebody did to her that she “cannot get over. Naturally, fans assumed it was about Hull. Chamberlain’s dad also unfollowed Hull on IG, making fans believe the rumors even more.
Whether she dated Hull or not, it’s all in the past now.
