In April 2023, rumors began spreading that Alix and Braxton were a thing.

This pairing is particularly juicy given that Braxton had apparently just gotten out of a relationship with Sophia Culpo (aka the younger sister of model Olivia Culpo). And given the close timing of Braxton and Sophia's breakup and the rumors surrounding Braxton and Alix, some fans speculated that Braxton ended things with Sophia in order to pursue a relationship with Alix.

A tip sent to the celebrity gossip account Deuxmoi claimed that there may have been some overlap in between these two events.

"Can confirm Braxton broke up with Sophia after meeting Alix Earle and they are now hooking up," read one tip. The insider further shared that they allegedly crossed paths at a horse race or at a mutual's birthday party.

However, another tip rejected that narrative, claiming that Alix just happened to come into the picture post–Braxton and Sophia's breakup, with the anonymous source writing, "Can confirm Sophia and Braxton broke up months ago and it was before Alix Earle."

However, following her May 2023 college graduation, a TikTok video surfaced with more proof that Alix and Braxton were an item, and showed the NFL star was at Alix's graduation party with her friends and family.

Then, in June 2023, Alix shared a bunch of TikToks with Braxton from a weekend in the Hamptons, where the two attended the Palm Tree Music Festival together, per the New York Post.

“We’re not even ‘dating’ but just hard for me to not share stuff w u guys hahahaha,” Alix responded to one commenter who exclaimed that this was a "hard launch" of their relationship.

Apparently Alix took time that weekend to throw some shade at an ex when she said in one video: "it is so nice not having someone yell at you while making [GRWM videos]."

It's possible she was referring to Tyler Wade. Let's dive into that...

Previously, Alix Earle dated baseball player Tyler Wade — then dragged him on TikTok for never posting a photo with her.

Alix was previously been linked to former MLB player Tyler in September 2022. As for how long their relationship lasted, it appears to have been short-lived.

In December 2022, she shared in a TikTok Live that they had broken up some time ago. The exact date is unknown.

"We haven't been together for a hot minute," she revealed during the live video, per Life&Style. "I've just been hiding it from you guys because I didn't feel like dealing with it right now. Even stuff I posted of me and my boyfriend — we were not even dating like a week or two ago."

As for the reason for their breakup? Alix claimed they had been "fighting for a bit." She also noted that she wasn't too keen on the fact that he never made their relationship Instagram official.

"He wouldn't post me. We went to a wedding and got all these good photos together and two selfies of him, and he was like, 'Oh how many pictures should I post?' and I was thinking, 'Aw he's going to post me,'" Alix said. But according to Alix, he never did.

Well, it looks like Alix no longer has to deal with those issues as she confirmed in November 2023 that she and Braxton were officially dating. So, there you have it. Although Alix strung fans along for months, leaving them wondering what was going on between her and Braxton, we now know he was the mystery man she had been referring to and the two are now an item.
