She Had a Sheltered Upbringing
Brooke Monk was born on January 31, 2003 in Jacksonville, Florida, United States. She is the middle child of her parents’ five children and has four sisters. She grew up with her sisters in a conservative family. Even though she was not allowed to wear full-face makeup until she was 15, she has a picture of herself trying makeup when she was only three. Clarifying confusion among her fans how she was a senior at the age of 16, she stated that she was homeschooled all her life, which allowed her to complete studies quicker without skipping grades. She also revealed that she might take a gap year before attending college because she wanted to get her priorities straight and also see where her social media fame would take her.
She Is a Devout Christian
Brooke Monk comes from a very religious family and has never shied away from expressing her religious affiliation. She mentioned she is a Christian in her YouTube bio, has a Biblical verse on her Instagram bio, and also starts her TikTok bio mentioning “Jesus forever” flanked by two heart emojis. She further refused to lip-sync a portion of a song in a TikTok video containing the word “Goddamn”. Answering fan questions, she once mentioned that her ideal partner would be one who “Loves Jesus, is always willing to have a conversation about Christianity.”
She Got Into Trouble for Pro-Trump Comment
Early on in her social media journey, Brooke Monk had made a pro-Trump comment on another person’s TikTok video which came back to haunt her later after she became very famous. While watching that video containing a room tour, she noticed a pro Trump flag and commented, “Haha Trump flag and now you got a new follower! #Trump2020.” When the comment was re-discovered in October 2020, it caused an uproar among her fans as many criticized her views. She eventually explained that due to her sheltered upbringing, she was not fully aware of the political scenario. In her apology, she said, “I made this comment three weeks after I downloaded TikTok and was very ignorant / misunderstood so many policies.”
She Is Dating Sam Dezz
In an early Q&A video just after gaining popularity on social media, Brooke Monk had told her fans that she did not have a boyfriend because she did not consider herself mature enough to be in a relationship. However, she also mentioned that she would be dating after turning 18 and even explained that she would like to date a religious Christian boy who would respect people in general and treat his mother with respect, because then he would probably treat her similarly. In the latter half of 2020, she began to appear regularly with fellow social media star Sam Dezz, sparking dating rumors. They have since then made the relationship official. She posted a vlog on YouTube of visiting Los Angeles for the first time, accompanied by him, and recently wished him on Valentine’s Day posting several pictures of them on Instagram.
She Sells Merchandise from Her Own Store
Brooke Monk has already set up an online store at shopbrookemonk.com to cater to the demands of her millions of fans who are eager to show their support by buying her merchandise. She announced her “authentic” brand of merchandise on her Instagram on February 10, 2020, posing wearing dresses from her collection with her elder sister Audra. She offers different collections such as “I’m Not Funny” and “Relatable Simp” which include hoodies, T-shirts, beanies, and face masks with the taglines printed on them.
