The Kid Laroi made history this week after becoming the youngest artist to top the Australian album chart with his mixtape F*ck Love. And it seems the rapper’s love life is going just as swimmingly as his music career, as the 17-year-old spoke on Wednesday about his unexpected romance with ‘the most beautiful girl on the world’, TikTok star Katarina Deme, 16.
At a recent LA event, Aussie singing phenomenon The Kid Laroi looked smitten with his TikTok girlfriend Katarina Deme. At a recent basketball game in Los Angeles, homegrown music star The Kid Laroi went out with his partner, Karina Deme.
Who Is The Girlfriend of The Kid Laroi In 2022?
Deme, 17, is Sydney-born singer and rapper Kyle’s girlfriend. For almost 18 months, the pair has been dating TikTok star Deme. The Kid Laroi had a vision for 2021 in which he scored one of the year’s biggest global hits with his catchy Justin Bieber collaboration Stay. He also took home Artist of the Year honors at the recent ARIA Awards.
He’s already made history as the youngest solo artist to have a number one album in Australia, besting Delta Goodrem’s record that has stood for longer than he’s been alive. Laroi, Charlton Howard on August 17, 2003, is also just the second Indigenous artist to achieve this feat (Dr G. Yunupingu’s posthumous 2018 album Djarimirri is the other).

The musician, whose real name is Charlton Howard, laughed and replied: ‘I agree!’
The Indigenous star added that he never expected to fall in love so young, but did so shortly after relocating from Sydney to Los Angeles, where Katarina is based.
‘We met through a mutual friend that I had when I came around here,’ he said.
‘Around the time that I met her, I just put out the whole F*ck Love project and was not in the vibe of love.
‘But I guess… you can’t control some of that type of stuff. It was so ironic.’
Radio presenter Kyle Sandilands added: ‘Once again it’s proven that when you’re not looking, love comes along at the strangest time.’
‘100 per cent, I agree,’ Laroi replied.
Fans on social media are obsessed with the pair’s cute love story, and some have even dubbed them the new era’s Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez.
Who Is Katarina Deme?
Alongside the photo of the pair cuddled up together, the rapper wrote: ‘I know I said f**k love but… @katarina.deme.’
At the age of 16, Katrina has accumulated more than 760,000 followers on TikTok, and almost 600,000 on Instagram.

Elton John has featured Laroi on his radio show, where the Rocket Man singer predicted that something would happen to him in 2021. “You’re already huge, but I believe you’ll realize what’s ahead for you in 2021,” he said to him.
Not to mention Laroi’s significant other, who is another social media influencer in her own right: she has over 7 million likes on TikTok and 1 million Instagram followers, sharing photographs and material from her modeling career. When The Kid Laroi relocated from Sydney to Los Angeles last year, he met his future wife.
