Why is Quenlin Blackwell famous?
Blackwell got her start in 2013 when she was just 12 years old.

How old is Quenlin Blackwell?
According to Famous Birthdays, she’s 19 years old and celebrates her birthday on January 17.
Is Quenlin Blackwell living with Diplo?
She shocked her followers in October 2020 when she said she is currently “living with” 41-year-old Diplo.
As far as we know, they aren’t dating — just friends. They don’t even technically “live” together, according to Diplo, but we’ll get to that in a moment.
“I live with Diplo right now and he fully supports my endeavors,” she said in a TikTok when asked about noise complaints in her living situation.
The American DJ, whose real name is Thomas Wesley Pentz, is known for his collaborations with pop stars like Dua Lipa and Justin Bieber, as well as for his involvement in the supergroup Major Lazer.
Blackwell started a “living with Diplo” series on TikTok in which she shared some of the quirky moments from her encounters with him.
She denied being romantically involved with him in a tweet.
“I’d rather break both of my legs and be forced to walk than pursue Diplo and he’d rather choke,” she wrote.
Diplo confirmed his friendship with her in a TikTok post.
He said they don’t live together, though. He’s just her landlord and neighbor.
“OK so I rent one of my properties to [Blackwell]. And yes I use the studio that is in that building,” he said in a tweet. “Her social media is sarcastic and chaotic and I can see you can get a twisted idea but there is nothing but a friendship between us.”
Fans questioned the nature of their relationship in spite of both of their statements.
“What do you have in common with a 19-year-old that would warrant a friendship, quick,” one user wrote.
“Girl please be careful. this is sounding a little too familiar to me and I’m worried about you,” another said.
One thing is for certain: Blackwell is a bright star who deserves to be known for her creations, not her relationships. We’re eager to see more from her in the future, with or without Diplo.
