Tre Melvin is an actor and comedian who has built a prolific career on YouTubers and other social media sites with a huge fan base across all platforms. He is also a playwright, podcaster, and, among many other things, a philanthropist.
Who is Tre Melvin, How Old Is He?
Tre Melvin was born on October 28, 1992, in Dayton, Ohio, where he grew up. As a small child, Tre had plans to become an actor, so he went to the Stivers School for the Performing Arts, where he studied drama and creative writing. From there he moved to the University of Cincinnati where he studied business marketing.
By the time he was 12 years old, Tre had already started acting professionally by performing on stage. Soon after, he began playing roles in commercials, short films, and musicals. The YouTuber and actor grew up at the side of a sister, Kayla Melvin. She could not only be seen in his social media reports, but also in his short film Skullface.
What has made him more famous than most other things he has been involved with is his YouTube channel, which has accumulated over a quarter of a billion visitors so far. He launched it in 2011, and by the second half of 2018, the channel already had more than 3.39 million subscribers with over 170 uploaded videos.
He has worked under many great personalities, including Dr. Dre and Watermelondrea Jones, among whom he released his 9-track album Mad House in 2015. The hip-hop album featured artists such as Michelle Ang, Shaylen Carroll, and Bugatti Beez.
In addition to his YouTube channel, Tre also has a massive cross-platform fan base in social media. He has over 615 thousand followers on Instagram and over 519 thousand followers on Twitter. He also runs the Bottoms Up! podcast, where he introduces different people and talks about different things, such as dealing with anxiety and depression, entertainment, and more. He only started the podcast in April 2018.
Looking back on his life as an actor, he has participated in the thriller drama “Conundrum: Secrets Among Friends” from 2018 and a number of TV mini-series including “Drea & Michellé”, “12 Deadly Days”, “The Vacation” and “FANtasies”. Tre Melvin is also the author, producer, and editor of such works as Drea & Michellé and The Vacation.
A native of Dayton, Tre Melvin has written a number of plays including Afterwhile, Scratch That Story, Scratch That Story 2: Deadline, and Grandma’s Apple Pie.
Is He Gay, If So Who is His Boyfriend?
In case you’re wondering: the YouTube star isn’t gay, but he had something interesting to say about his sexuality. In a video that he posted on YouTube with the day “My New Year’s resolution” for 2014, he explained that in the New Year he decided to be himself and accept who he is, thus revealing that he is bisexual.
He revealed that his last relationship before coming out as a bisexual was with a man, and that taught him to love himself for who he was. He said he prayed and tried to be heterosexual but failed, so he would accept himself as he is.
Over the years, he had dated women until he dated a man and realized that he loved it too. However, he was able to keep all those with whom he was in relationships under wraps, as there was little real information about his girlfriends or boyfriend.
How Much Is He Worth?
Tre Melvin has come a very long way with everything he does, especially since his music is quite good and his YouTube channel is highly engaged. More than that, he is equally involved in acting and writing, which gives him several sources of income.
Apart from that, his actual net worth is still under review, even though there are sources that claim that he could be worth over $400,000. What is certain is that he is rich enough to get the things he needs to buy his mother a car and give scholarships to children as a philanthropist.
