Who is Claire Abbott?
Claire Abbott was born on January 22, 1998 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and is a former YouTube and Instagram personality, best known for her online fame during her teens, mainly after posting several photos of herself in a bikini. She is also known for her sudden disappearance from the online world without any explanation.
Claire Abbott’s net worth
At the beginning of 2020, Claire Abbott’s net worth is estimated to be over $1 million earned through a successful career in social media. During the height of her fame, she earned advertising revenue through the many followers she had on YouTube.
She also got online opportunities on Instagram, in the form of sponsored posts and the like. However, since her inactivity, her earnings have stalled and it is unknown if she will continue to build on her initial wealth.
Early life and online beginnings
Claire grew up in Toronto and aspired to be a singer at a young age. She started writing songs and poems as a child, which she continued to do as she grew up. During high school, she was often seen at sporting events, as she was a cheerleader for her school.
Although she lived relatively out of the spotlight for most of her childhood, something changed sometime in 2012 when she started posting pictures to her Instagram account.
Several of the photos were of herself in a bikini, and her attractive looks quickly earned her a following. She used this initial fame as a platform to launch an online music career and create a YouTube channel on which she posted covers. She also posted some of her original poems and some of her musical creations.
In the same year, Abbott made a video of one of her original songs called “Fighter” which got hundreds of thousands of views on the platform. Many people complimented her singing voice and how she looked very attractive.
She started increasing her influence by creating accounts on Twitter and Facebook to gain more followers. As she continued to upload, she gained a steady following. Eventually, she expanded her content and also started posting various fashion-related posts, making videos about fashion and giving beauty advice. Her Instagram reached over 500,000 followers, one of the reasons for her success was her consistent posts.
During the height of her online career, she was featured in the magazine “Maximwhich gave her channel and Instagram account much more exposure as it was shared thousands of times.
Then things changed when, without any warning, she started deleting her videos on her YouTube channel, then deactivated all of her social media accounts and deleted most of her photos. Only her fan page on Facebook remained, and it was inactive for several years. Due to lack of information, many of her fans speculated about her disappearance.
One of the more popular accounts of her disappearance was that Claire hated the fact that she became popular based solely on her looks, and wanted people to appreciate her musical skills more.
She wanted people to take her seriously and got frustrated when they only asked for pictures of her. Others stated that some nude photos of her had surfaced online, so she deleted all of her accounts out of embarrassment. There was also a time when she posted a picture of herself spending time with a social media star Dan Bilzerian.
Dan rose to fame online for showcasing his lavish lifestyle, which often included tropical vacations, luxury cars, luxury yachts and beautiful models. He is known to be very liberal in displaying his wealth and making a lot of money with success in poker.
He was also raised in a wealthy family, as his father worked in Wall Street. He was dubbed the “Instagram Playboy” and it was speculated that Claire’s association with him may have attracted many online bullies and trolls who wanted to get her out of her friendship with the celebrity.
Mental health problems and resurgence
The most likely cause of Abbott’s disappearance is her struggle with mental health problems. When she was very active online, she posted a picture of herself in a hospital, stating that she had just received treatment because she suffered from severe depression and an anxiety disorder.
This photo was taken in October 2013 at Sunnybrook Hospital. I was recently diagnosed with depressive…
The doctors also told her she was borderline bipolar, and this meant she could have extreme mood swings. She had been working on the matter for a year before her disappearance.
In 2019 she returned to Instagram, and started posting photos again. She had become much slimmer and showed a body that had been trained many times in the gym. She stated that she was now a model and 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 seems to have gotten over the issue of her association with Bilzerian, whom she calls a friend.
She posted a photo of them together along with other photos that often revealed 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 it’s her account because the way this new account posts is not similar to her older accounts. It felt more like a fan was posting to the site and using her past fame to get attention.
Claire is romantically linked to Dan Bilzerian, although she has reiterated that she is just friends with her. Dan is not known to have long term relationships or committed partners given his online lifestyle. She enjoys sports and music and spends most of her time developing her musical skills.
