Fans of the rapper Juice Wrld (stylized Juice WRLD; real name: Jarad Anthony Higgins), who died in December 2019, think his ex, Instagram influencer Ally Lotti, has got a new boyfriend after entrepreneur Carter Jamison posted an Instagram Story in which he’s wearing a particular wrist watch.
These rumors, however, appear to be false.
It has been nearly three years since Juice Wrld’s death. Lotti accompanied him on his 2019 US tour.
They reportedly started dating in 2018, going public in November of that year. The last time they were together was three days before he died. Here’s why fans of the late rapper think Lotti has got a new boyfriend.
Juice Wrld fans suggest Ally Lotti has a new boyfriend in Reddit forum
“Ally Lotti’s new boyfriend,” reads the title of a post in the r/JuiceWRLD subreddit.
The original poster (OP) has included a screen recording of a quick flick through the Instagram Stories of one Carter Jamison. Jamison is a self-described “serial entrepreneur” and the founder and chief executive of Gateway Agency.
The OP’s video flicks through multiple Instagram Stories until it finds what one it appears to be looking for. It is a short boomerang clip showing a wrist wearing two wrist watches. The soundtrack, listed in the top corner, is Juice WRLD’s song Burn.
Those discussing Ally Lotti’s association with Carter Jamison on Reddit appear to have jumped to the conclusion that a) they are dating, and b) it was in some way “weird” and/or “disrespectful” to Juice WRLD for Jamison to be wearing the watch he gave Lotti.
Ally Lotti did not give Juice Wrld’s watch to Carter Jamison
The watch Carter Jamison is wearing in the Instagram Story is indeed the one late rapper Juice Wrld gave Ally Lotti before he died, but there doesn’t appear to be any evidence that it means he is her new boyfriend, as Reddit users have suggested.
See a photo in which Ally Lotti appears to be wearing the watch in question above.
When asked for a comment on the rumors, Carter Jamison told GRV Media and The Focus that Ally Lotti did not give him the watch. Nor did he wear it for “more than five seconds” after posting the story.
The picture, he says, “was a simple story when we compared wrist sizes and noticed we are similar sizing.”
It was “simply a cool picture,” Jamison adds, which may well put rumors that he is Ally Lotti’s new boyfriend to rest.
Who is Jamison?
Age 19 and based in Oklahoma, Jamison is the founder and chief executive of Gateway, a marketing agency that claims to be able to “make things go viral.”
At the age of 15, according to his website, Jamison made between $40,000 and $80,000 by growing a monetised network of Instagram pages with “millions of followers” in a “variety of niches.”
He has since scaled this up, his professional bio adds, “to a seven-figure annual revenue” through various partnerships and deals with celebrities.
Ally Lotti’s dog loves him
Lotti has posted about Jamison in her Instagram Stories, too, although nothing she’s written or posted suggests he is her boyfriend, or even that they are romantically linked.
Her dog Caplyn “literally loves Carter so much,” she wrote in one video. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen Cap let anyone hold him.”
“He just lets Carter hold him like a little babe.”
She tagged Jamison in the video, and in the one that followed. Caplyn’s Instagram bio (yes, Caplyn has an Instagram account) contains the following: “Always missing our dad Juice Wrld.”
Website Who’s Dated Who currently lists Ally Lotti as single. Her relationship with Juice Wrld lasted from 2018 to 2019.
