Who is Adin Ross?
Popular content creator, social media star, and YouTuber who rose to prominence as one of the most successful “Grand Theft Auto” and “NBA 2K” video games Twitch streamers, Adin Ross was born under the zodiac sign of Libra on 11 October 2000, in Boca Raton, Florida USA; he holds American nationality, and his ethnicity is Jewish.
Adin is also known for being banned from Twitch, which happened on 10 April 2021, after his friend, a YouTuber answered a ‘phone call and called Adin a ‘faggot’, but after Adin contacted Twitch staff, he was unbanned two days later.
However, on 21 April 2022, Adin was again banned indefinitely and it seems that the reason for that was ‘hateful conduct’, although it wasn’t specified, Adin shared with his fans that he had received an e-mail saying that he is banned due to ‘using hateful slurs, hate symbols, or hate group emblems without context or in a harmful manner.’
Early life, family, and education
Adin was raised in Boca Raton by his parents, about whom he hasn’t spoken, thus their names and occupations are unrevealed, although some rumors say that his father is a wealthy businessman, but Adin hasn’t confirmed these assumptions. He has a younger sister, Naomi, who was often seen in his live videos.
He had an interest in video games from an early age, and dreamed of becoming a famous streamer, saying in one of his interviews that he even skipped his high school prom to stream on Twitch. In the same interview, he spoke about the accident which happened to him when he was 12 years old, saying that a mentally unstable relative stabbed him while he was sleeping. The relative was arrested but admitted to a mental hospital, while Adin had nine stitches in his arm.
Speaking about his educational background, Adin attended Woodlake Union High School, and upon matriculating in 2018, he didn’t enroll in college but pursued his career as a streamer.
Rose to prominence
In 2019, Adin started streaming regularly on Twitch, and joined the “NBA 2K” group, Always Excelling, where he met Bronny James, LeBron James’s son – thanks to playing and streaming with him, Adin gained popularity. In the following year, Adin started the Twitter hashtag ‘#make2kfunagain’ after being dissatisfied with the creators of the updated video game “NBA 2K21”, and this trend reached number one on Twitter.
The same year, he began hosting, as he called it, ‘e-date’ streams, on which his fans and followers compete to find a date over Discord, users communicating with voice and video calls, and text messages in private chats, which lead to increasing the number of Adin’s followers on Twitch.
In February 2021, Adin moved into the ‘wizza’ house, and became a member of the collective Clout Gang 2.0 alongside RiceGum, FaZe Banks, Mike Majlak and Sommer Ray.
When his Twitch account was banned, it was being followed by over six million people, and the most popular videos, besides his gaming videos, are his ‘Just Chatting’ streams, in which his often quest is his friend Bronny.
Adin launched his YouTube channel entitled “Adin Live” on 15 August 2014, and it’s today subscribed to by over 2.5 million people, with all of his videos combined having gained nearly 500 million views.
His number one most viewed video – “Tory Lanez & Adin Ross FREESTYLE on Stream…” – was uploaded on 18 June 2021, and it has been viewed over 7.5 million times, while his second most viewed video “Lil Uzi Vert – Ballin (Official Lyric Video) Ft.

Love life and relationships
There have been various rumors concerning both Adin’s love life and his sexual orientation, however, in one of his videos, Adin confirmed that rumors about him being gay are false.
He is in a long-term relationship with a girl who is only known by her moniker ‘Pamibaby’, although some of Adin’s fans claimed that her name is Pamela; he hasn’t confirmed this rumor.
Adin prefers to keep his private life away from the public eye, however, being as famous as he is, it might be hard, and since his girlfriend is also a popular social media star, particularly on TikTok, after being pressed by their fans, in April 2021 the two announced their relationship through their Instagram accounts.
As of March 2022, the two are still together, and Adin has even stated that he’s thinking about marrying her.
Age, house, and net worth
Adin’s age is 21, he has brown hair and brown eyes, and his trademark is his eyebrow slit and contagious laugh; he weighs around 145lbs (65kgs) and is 5ft 10ins (1.78m) tall.
Adin used to live with his fellows in a house with 10 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, with an elevator, game room, home theatre, gym, and several fireplaces. The staircases are made of glass, and the walls are open to the outside, where there is an outdoor kitchen and pool.
The house is located in a neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, and this 12,500 square-foot mansion has an estimated value of over $7 million.
In November 2021, Adin uploaded a video on his YouTube channel in which he explained why he’s going to leave his Los Angeles house, and move to Tribeca, New York, saying that because he was working too much, he has experienced so-called, burn-out, and that he needs a quieter place saying about his fellows from Clout Gang with whom he lived ‘There’s a lot of snakes in this house, bro’.
Currently, Adin resides in Tribeca, and according to sources, this social media star has a net worth estimated at close to $2 million, with most of his income from his Twitch streaming, however, he has earned a decent amount of money through his collaborations with various brands, such as Stake and Duelbits.
