Boyfriend & Dating History

Oscar Utierre

She met the popular fashion designed right after she moved to Los Angeles in 2013. It doesn’t take long before friendship blooming between them.

However, since then, their relationship has been going on and off. It is not even known when they officially break up.

Michael Yerger

Michael is a model and internet star as well. They dated shortly in 2018, but it’s not really ever confirmed when it starts and ends.

What’s known is both of them break up after he is allegedly involved in infidelity.

Harry Jowsey

The rumor that they got into an exclusive romantic relationship started when Nikita guests on Harry’s podcast in mid-2021. At that time, they showed some physically close moments together on camera.

That being said, he adressed the rumor by denying it on September. He stated that she is no different than other girls he is close to.

Tony Lopez

Fans had suspicion that she and Tony were dating each other because they seem to be particularly close when creating joint video contents.

However, she denied the speculation by saying they’re apparently just friends through an interview in June 2020.

Chase Stobbe

Nikita uploaded several images with an unknown man in July 2020, along with some emojis. This prompted her fans to do a research on who he actually is.

Later, it was revealed that the man is Chase Stobbe. This was also supported by his own confirmation through an Instagram story, showing an adorable picture with her.

It is not really known when they went separated ways. However, the relationship lasts at least until April 2021.

Alejandro Rosario

They both interact for the first time in January 2021, when she commented on his pic flirtily to ask his age. Fast forward a day, he left a comment on her instagram post.

Both met at Nikita’s birthday party where they took an adorable selfie and shared on Nikita’s Instagram story. Paparazzi also caught and captured them taking a drive together.

This became a hot topic amongst fan because Alejandro was still a 18-year high school student at the time, making him a minor.

Later, she denied the dating rumor with him to her followers. She stated that they’re just friends.

Net Worth 

Her net worth is estimated to be about $3 million to $6 million, according to multiple sources. A major part of her net worth is gain from her significant internet presence and business.

Brand Sponsorships
