Birth Place

Unlike some of her contemporaries, Kalel did not achieve overnight stardom. Her rise to fame was a steady one, and she definitely worked hard to achieve all the success she enjoys today. Foraying into the social media in 2010, she created, and later deleted several channels before finally finding her footing as a much beloved YouTube star. The many channels she once posted to include ‘queenbeeuty,’ ‘KalelCullenTV,’ and ‘WonderlandWardrobe.’ After she began dating fellow YouTuber Anthony Padilla, the couple started their collaborative channel ‘WatchUsLiveAndStuff’ or ‘WULAS’ which went on to become highly famous, accumulating over half a million subscribers within a few months. By the time the channel was discontinued, it had amassed around 1.7 million subscribers. While already a moderately successful YouTuber even before she dated Anthony, her relationship and subsequent collaboration with him gave her career a big boost and also added to her personal popularity.

The Meteoric Rise to Stardom

Despite all the name and fame she enjoys, Kalel is no stranger to controversies! Initially she had told her fans that Kalel Cullen is her real name; however, later it was revealed that her actual name is “Kristin Smith.” Her fans felt betrayed as she had lied to them about her real identity. Kalel is also accused of fabricating several details about her family. She had lied about having Scottish ancestry and falsely claimed that her mother was Native American. She also professes to be an animal rights activist and vegan, but has been spotted consuming animal products on several occasions. On her vlogs, she promoted some beauty brands that test on animals which earned her the wrath of genuine animal rights activists. They accused her of hypocrisy as real vegans don’t support animal testing. Additionally, Kalel is also accused of promoting negative body image among youngsters. Her break-up with former fiancé Anthony Padilla was also surrounded in controversy as Anthony accused her of emotionally manipulating him.

Controversies & Scandals

Kalel was born on March 30, 1989 in Missouri. No credible information about her parents or siblings is available as the details she herself had provided about her family were found to be fabricated. In 2010, she began dating popular YouTuber Anthony Padilla. The two became very close over the following years and got engaged in 2013. However their relationship was a tumultuous one, as Anthony revealed later. The couple broke their engagement in late 2014. Soon after the break-up, Kalel started dating again. In 2015, she revealed the identity of her new boyfriend to be Alec Rosa. This relationship came to an end within a few months. In 2016, she announced to her followers that she was once again in a relationship, this time with a guy called Cyrus who she had met at a New Year’s party in Las Vegas.

Behind The Curtains

Kalel is a self-professed animal lover and shares her home with two cats; she often posts pictures of her cats on her social media profiles.
