Charli D'Amelio's fans allegedly found the 16-year-old's secret TikTok account.
The account still has an automated username and no profile picture.
A spokesperson for D'Amelio did not immediately respond to Insider's inquiry.
Charli D'Amelio's fans may have found her secret TikTok account under the automated username @user4350486101671, which has no bio or profile picture.
The account has posted multiple videos of D'Amelio on a trip to Atlanta, where she attended Jake Paul's highly-publicized fight against Ben Askren on Saturday. D'Amelio and her sister, Dixie, presented Paul with the winning belt at the fight, and the D'Amelio sisters were joined by their parents and Avani Gregg of the Hype House.
The 16-year-old TikTok sensation is the most-followed creator on the platform, with over 113 million followers on her main account.
The new account amassed over three million followers in just three days, though D'Amelio has not publicly confirmed that the account belongs to her. A spokesperson for D'Amelio did not immediately respond to Insider's inquiry.
D'Amelio would not be the first influencer to use a secret social-media account - sometimes referred to as "alt" or "spam" accounts - to share content they wouldn't normally post on their main pages. Celebrities have also adopted the spam account tactic to partially escape their millions of followers and have a more private space online. Dixie has a "finsta," or a fake Instagram used for the same purpose, as Vulture has reported.
It was not immediately clear how followers found the account, but DefNoodles, a social-media watchdog YouTuber, tweeted about it on Sunday after it had already gained 2.9 million followers since Friday. The apparent discovery came as D'Amelio's promotion of the Triller-sponsored fight had been criticized online.
The videos featured D'Amelio in hotel rooms, restaurants, dancing, and generally vlogging the trip with Gregg and her sister.
Many users shared their excitement for finding the "secret" account in the comments section of the videos.
Others began to speculate that if the account does belong to D'Amelio, she is using it so "she can act like a normal teenager." As another commenter put it, the teen influencer frequently faces "negative" comments on her main page. Several followers pointed out the significant difference in comments on her main account compared to those on the alleged "secret" one.
"The difference between the comments on this [account] and her main is insane, her main is so negative & here it's so much better," one person commented.
