Jacob Sartorius' birthplace is Tulsa, Oklahoma, the United States. He was born there on October 2, 2002, and was given to an orphanage. He was adopted shortly after and moved to Virginia with new parents. Sartorius passed his childhood in Reston, Virginia.
Sartorius was lucky to have been adopted by these people. So, they don't have financial problems and can afford everything he needs to live well. Besides, Jacob's parents have always given him support and love. Sartorius has often referred to them for advice.
At an early age, Jacob found the passion of his life – singing and performing on stage. The parents supported him and encouraged him to develop his talent. With their help, Sartorius has written his own lyrics.
As a 7-year-old kid, Jacob began performing in musicals. It became the reason for children around to bully him.
Having got acquainted with the Internet and Social Media, Sartorius published his first online-video to Vine – he was only 11 years old. There Jacob speculated about bullying and how to avoid it. The video went viral – it noted the beginning of his fame on social media. The same year, Sartorius installed Musical.ly where also became popular. He published there lip-syncing videos and was named one of the best app's stars with more than 9 million followers.
As Sartorius became famous, it made his mates stop bully him. In his future admissions, Jacob confessed he had changed three schools in 2015 cause his classmates verbally attacked, pushed, and teased him. Social Media helped him escape from bullying. Jacob himself once said, "Before Musical.ly, I wasn't the most outgoing. The app helped me goof off. It's like no one is watching beside the camera."
In his accounts, Sartorius once admitted he had been seeking therapy and taking anti-depressant medication since he was 11 years old.
Sartorius is currently dating actress Millie Bobby Brown, a Spanish-born British actress. She rose to prominence for her role as Eleven 'El'/Jane Hopperin the Netflix science fiction horror series Stranger Things, for which she received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series at the age of 13, becoming one of the youngest nominees in Emmy history.
Brown is the youngest person to feature on the Time 100 list of the world's most influential people and is the youngest person to be appointed as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
The two started going out in October 2017. In April 2018, there were rumors that Jacob cheated on Millie, but the two are still going strong.
They have broken up but reunited again. A month after Millie effectively announced her back-on romance with Sartorius, she shared another photo of her and her boyfriend getting close, posting a pic of the two of them kissing on the beach. Some social media users criticized Brown for engaging in such a serious romance at her young age.
Interestingly, the couple was shamed by Ariana Grande. It is known, Ariana Grande has a sassy sense of humor. Apparently, Brown and Sartorius aren't her big fans because the couple had some conflicts with her.
In May of 2018, Brown posted an Instagram photo of her and Sartorius locking lips with the words "Moonlight with him." Grande commented the photo: "I wasn't even allowed to leave my house till I was 20." Many fans agreed, and Brown promptly deleted the post.
