Lauren was born on 5 March 1999, in Essex, England, and was raised in a supportive family, with her upbringing fostering her inclination towards performing arts and entertainment.

While in school, Lauren had a penchant for drama, music and dance. Her magnetic personality always drew attention, and she soon realized that her calling was in the realm of entertainment. With the world increasingly going digital, Lauren decided to leap into the platform that offered unlimited reach – YouTube.
Rise to Fame
Lauren’s journey to YouTube stardom began in 2016. At the age of 17, she launched her self-titled channel, initially uploading vlog style videos. She became more active on the platform in 2019, and quickly became a YouTube sensation, by uploading a variety of videos, the ones with most traction being her try-on hauls and autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) videos.
Lauren also began collaborating with other YouTubers, notably the Sidemen, with whom she filmed their viral video “Tinder In Real Life”, which has amassed more than 67 million views.

As her popularity soared, Lauren began to explore other platforms on which she could further express herself and connect with her audience. In 2020, she joined OnlyFans, a subscription-based website that allows creators to post content that is often deemed too explicit for mainstream social media platforms. Lauren was able to maintain her artistic freedom while also expanding her revenue streams. Despite facing criticism, she remained unapologetic about her decisions, gaining respect for her openness and authenticity.
Presence on Social Media
Since gaining fame on YouTube, Lauren has also amassed a large following on other social media platforms. She’s particularly popular on Instagram, where her account ‘@laurenalexis_x’ has over two million followers. On there, she uploads provocative modeling photos while also sharing glimpses of her personal life with her fans. However, Lauren has become less active on the platform since late 2021, and has shifted most of her focus on making content to YouTube and TikTok.
Lauren became active on TikTok in 2020, and has since reached close to 2.5 million followers, while her videos have over 40 million likes.
She also has a Twitter account with more than 700,000 followers, which she primarily uses to promote her OnlyFans content.
