TikTok star Madison "Mads" Lewis' past relationship and breakup dramatically played out in the public eye, and she's now sounding off on the rumors that she's dating another top creator on the app.
The Chicken Girls actress had an on-and-off romance with Sway House alum Jaden Hossler (aka Jxdn). It officially came to an end in the spring of 2021 when she found out that Jaden had feelings for his "La Di Die" collaborator, Nessa Barrett.
While her ex has moved on in a public manner, Mads had been keeping the details of her dating life to herself — that is, until she started posting videos with fellow content creator, Christian Plourde.
A flirty set of TikTok videos had Mads' fans convinced that she was dating Christian, but she has since commented on the relationship speculation.
Who is Mads Lewis dating?
Less than three weeks after the 18-year-old appeared on the Call Her Daddy podcast to share her side of the story regarding her breakup from Jaden Hossler, Mads got her fans wondering if she had moved on as well.
On May 4, Mads added a flirty TikTok video with fellow creator Christian Plourde to her profile.
In the post, Mads walked up behind a shirtless Christian as he was doing something at his kitchen counter. He soon turned to face Mads and the camera, and she began to lip sync and dance along to the song "Beatbox Freestyle" by Young M.A. (a sound which was first used on the app by @meccabandz).
The lyrics are about a "toxic" ex, which some followers thought could have been subtle shade directed toward Jaden.
Many people pointed out in the comments section that Mads appeared to have a hickey.
Christian also added a video to his own TikTok feed, which is from the the same morning (the two are wearing the same outfits).
In his post, Mads began to walk toward the camera, but Christian then pulled her in for an embrace. He went on to kiss her on the back of her head. Fans also, once again, pointed out the apparent hickey.
"I made breakfast @Mads.Yo," he captioned the video, which also featured the song "Addicted to Finessing" by Retro Messiah.
Though their respective posts teased that the two were potentially more than friends, Mads told The Hollywood Fix that Christian is not her boyfriend.
"I do not have a new boyfriend," she shared on May 4. Mads then threw a bit of shade at Jaden for his new romance with Nessa.
"No, I feel like moving on that quick is really disgusting," Mads added.
When pressed further about her relationship status, Mads said that she is "just friends" with Christian.
Mads has continued to post content with Christian since confirming that they are not romantically involved.
Who is Christian Plourde?
Like Mads, Christian has also made a name for himself on the short video app. The 20-year-old created his TikTok page back in the fall of 2019, and he's since amassed a following list of more than 2 million accounts.
Christian is best known for his POV (Point of View) videos and for his comedy content.
Mads' close friend is originally from the Boston area, but he has since moved to Los Angeles. His twin brother, Will Plourde, also has a popular TikTok account, which has 192,000 followers.
In recent months, he's been posting videos with several Just a House members, including Eva Cudmore, Anna Shulman, and Emma Brooks McAllister.
Mads is also a member of the collective, but it's unclear if she first met Christian through their mutual friends.
Though Mads has officially debunked the romance speculation, fans are still paying close attention to Christian's appearances on her TikTok feed.
