She Co-founded ‘Top Talent House’
Katie Pego was one of the co-founders of the TikTok content collective ‘Top Talent House’, which was formed on October 10, 2020 in Los Angeles, California. Apart from Katie, the initial members of the all-girls content house included fellow TikTok stars Anna Shumate, Eva Cudmore and Rachel Brockman. Brockman, who was 16 at the time, was the youngest member of the house, while the three others were all 17 years old. Furthermore, the house also occasionally featured a couple of boys including Christian Plourde and Mason Hilton. Katie was the only member short of a million at 980k, while Shumate had a massive 6.6 million fans on TikTok at the time. The house primarily focused on dance videos and had amassed over 500k fans within a few weeks. Unfortunately, the house was dissolved within a month in early November amidst allegations of exploitation of minors against its manager, 21-year-old Nour Khodr. The allegations were brought up by Brockman, who left the house accusing Khodr of grooming, exploitation, theft, and providing underage girls with drugs and alcohol.
She Was Kicked out of ‘Not A Content House’
While all the drama about Top Talent House was ongoing, Rachel Brockman shared a Snapchat conversation between her and Katie in which Katie accused her of falsely implicating Khodr before mentioning that “none of this is going to matter on Monday because we are moving house”. Soon after, she and the remaining members of the group, Anna and Eva, joined another Los Angeles based content house named ‘Not A Content House’. However, her stay at the new collective was also short-lived as later the same month, fellow members of the house confirmed that she was kicked out of the house because of “drama with a lot of the girls in the House”. During their outing at Sunset Strip, Sabrina Quesada, Eva Cudmore and Anna Shumate were asked by a Hollywood Fix reporter why Katie was missing from the group, to which they made the revelation. However, on her personal TikTok, Katie mentioned that she left the house because her family members wanted her back home.

She Briefly Dated Alejandro Rosario
Katie Pego was involved in a brief romantic affair with YouTuber Alejandro Rosario for a few months in 2020. The relationship evolved within a very short period of time and ended just as quickly in April that year, when they announced their breakup. Apparently, it was not an amicable separation. Rosario had posted a tweet expressing his feeling for Katie even after breakup, before deleting it quickly, and she claimed in a tweet that “at least, i didn’t lead someone on”. Interestingly, fans of Rosario have accused her of dating him only for clouts and fame. While the two used to share pictures together on social media, they seem to have deleted most of the older posts and do not follow each other on Twitter anymore.
