How Caspar Lee Got Famous
Caspar Lee was born Caspar Richard George Lee on April 24th, 1994 in Paddington, England. His parents – Jonathan and Emily Lee – moved him and his older sister, Theodora, to South Africa early in his life. They were in a gorgeous rural town called Fort Nottingham, where they lived until they moved to Durban, SA. In 2013, Casper revealed that he had been diagnosed with Tourette syndrome at the age of 6 years old.
Caspar went to an all boys school in Durban until he turned 11. They moved around frequently, and when he was 13 he attended a school called Oakhill High School in Knysna, and eventually moved on to Crawford College in La Lucia. Unfortunately, his parents ended up filing for divorce. He was deeply saddened by this, although he confessed that it led to a better relationship with each of his parents individually.
Caspar Lee’s YouTube Career
On November 10, 2011, Caspar Lee joined YouTube. His first channel was called discasp, which was short for Director Caspar . He just started vlogging, with no real direction until a year later, when he started to become serious about making a career out of this YouTube thing. He had moved to London at that point, the channel had started to gain more viewers. Caspar was now 17, and I’m sure YouTube looked like a better career than getting a boring office job.
His channel started going viral, and he decided to create a new one. Once he moved to London, he began to meet other people that were famous on YouTube. He shared an apartment with YouTuber Joe Sugg, who he eventually when did his travel documentaries with. Joe was YouTube famous for his channel PointlessBlogs. Caspar ended up working with more famous YouTubers such as Tyler Oakley, Dan Howell, Shane Dawson, as well as Grace Helbig. His YouTube fame earned him parts in movies, and he is also the co-author of his own biography.
And he first started his channel, Caspar has gained over 7 million subscribers, and won the best YouTuber award, was featured in Yahoo! News’ article “The 12 Web-savvy Entrepreneurs to Watch,” and was nominated for various other awards in both the UK and America. It’s not hard to see that Caspar Lee is clearly going places.
Caspar Lee’s Controversies
While Caspar has managed to mostly stay out of the way of the drama within the YouTube community, he still managed to find himself in some. In 2016, YouTube ended up putting a restricted label on his Snapchat Truth or Dare video because someone dared him to drink bleach, and he pretended to do it for the video. This caused YouTube to throw up the content restriction because they saw it as encouraging others to do things that may cause them to get badly hurt. As his audience is primarily made up of younger viewers, they were upset that they were unable to watch the video. They ended up protesting YouTube, but to no avail. The video is still restricted today.
Caspar Lee’s Romantic Life
Caspar is fairly secretive about his romantic life. He has been confirmed to have dated Gaby Jones from October of October 2013 to June 2014. They did videos together, but he changed the description of his Youtube video “Meet My Girlfriend Gaby” to let his fans know that they were sadly no longer an item. He has been rumored to have dated Rebecca Black and Maisie Williams, but neither account has been confirmed. As of October 2017, he has been dating Madeleine Thea, a famous Instagram model. She is featured in many of his recent videos.
