Professional Life and Career
On February 8, 1997, Bella Poarch was born in the Philippines. She grew up in the Philippines with her family, and she later moved to Hawaii with them. When she attained the age of majority, she enlisted in the United States Navy.
Bella’s real name has been called into question since she rose to fame because a photo of her in her US Navy uniform shows her surname as “Taylor.” It implies that Bella Poarch is not her real name. Her birth date has also been called into question, as some websites list it as a different date.
Bella Poarch has over 40.6 million TikTok followers, 136,000 Twitter followers, 176,000 YouTube subscribers, and 7.5 million Instagram followers as of November 2020.

That video also sparked some criticism, with many people wondering why it was so well-liked and popular for such a small amount of effort.
Bella’s TikTok account is primarily focused on cuteness, lip-sync videos, dance videos, and some gaming content – her first TikTok video is about gaming.
In the months following her TikTok success, she launched a YouTube channel and a Twitter page.
Controversy and Scandals
Since becoming famous in 2020, Bella has been involved in a number of controversies. The actress has a “rising sun” flag tattoo on her body, which has sparked controversy. Her specific tattoo was a symbol of Japanese imperialism for many South Koreans. Because of the flag’s history, it is still controversial to this day.
On September 5, the social media star apologized to fans and stated that she “didn’t know the history” of the sign and “immediately had it covered and scheduled for removal” when she discovered what it meant. She stated in October that the tattoo had been covered and that she would share photos once it healed.
Bella was also accused of using a racist nickname when referring to one of her friends on social media. She referred to one of her Black friends as “Harambe,” after a gorilla who was killed in 2016 after a young boy climbed into his enclosure. Racist names have been given to monkeys and gorillas in the past. Bella responded, “You’re really trying to cancel me for calling my friend Harambe!” When we were stationed in Japan, that was his nickname.”
Bella’s personal life has been a mystery. The star appeared on rapper Tyga’s TikTok lip-syncing and dancing video in September. It sparked rumors that Tyga and Bella were dating, but there is no proof of this.
