Early life

Relative: Katherine(Sibling)

Johnson has four sisters and a brother. Her family eventually settled in California. In 2012, in a combined episode of Teens React and Elders React about the 2012 United States presidential election, Johnson stated that she was a Democrat.

Career

Johnson’s YouTube account was created in 2007, with videos uploaded by her mother which featured her performances at talent shows, and church recitals. After two years, Johnson began to control the output of the channel, creating content that has come to include personal commentary, sketch comedy, and musical performances.

In 2010, Johnson began to work with the Fine Brothers as a recurring guest on their Kids React series. This exposure increased the traffic to her own channel and became an early source of her online fame. In the aftermath of the initial series episodes, she was surprised by the phenomenon of strangers knowing her and approaching her as fans, and remarked “I think Kids React was my very first viral video, ‘cus everyone knew my name after that.”

In 2011, Johnson was added to the recurring cast of the spin-off series Teens React, and in 2014 was moved again to the newly established YouTubers React, which featured herself and various well known YouTube personalities. In 2014, Johnson appeared at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, and starred in Terry the Tomboy, a spin-off film based on the eponymous character she portrays on the Nickelodeon sketch comedy series, AwesomenessTV. She was profiled by Adweek in 2014 as one of the “biggest young stars on YouTube”.

In 2015, she covered the single “Latch” by Disclosure, singing with Alejandro Luis Manzano of Boyce Avenue, and released it on YouTube. The song was originally performed by singer Sam Smith. Johnson has also been featured on the covers of Adweek and BYou Magazine. On January 9, 2015, Johnson released her first single, “Moment Like You”, along with a music video which can be found on her YouTube channel. She appeared in the music video for Post Malone‘s single “Go Flex“, which was released on April 28, 2016.

On September 28, she explained to her fans that she had signed to Capitol Records, and was continuing to work on the music album she had been recording for the previous two years. The following month she released her first single produced by Howard Benson through Capitol Records titled “DNA” which surpassed 1 million Spotify streams. In November of that year, she interviewed then-current president Barack Obama.  On February 17, 2017, Johnson released her second single “Cold Heart Killer”. The music video for the song was released on March 10, 2017. A year later, Johnson debuted her third single “Champagne” on May 17, 2018.

Starting mid November 2019, Lia teased a new project on her Instagram page, with one promotional photo being posted every day. Seven days later, Lia announced her fourth single titled, “Moonflower,” on November 23, 2019. Johnson released her fifth single, “Like a God”, on March 12, 2020.

In the first half of 2021, Johnson began posting personal videos and covers on her YouTube channel again after four years of inactivity. She released the single “Lifts” on January 1, 2021, followed by “Nectar” on March 19 and “Venus Sunrise” on April 30. An accompanying music video was issued for all three songs.

In 2022, Johnson announced she had moved to England to live with her boyfriend, English musician Charlie Hudson. Following this, in October of the same year, Johnson started teasing upcoming music that she had been preparing for 2023.

Personal life

Johnson has had an open and public battle with addiction. She announced that as of March 2023, she was one year sober. She continues to post about her sobriety on her social media pages.

Marriage rumours circulated about Johnson and long term partner Charlie Hudson, throughout early 2023 after they were both seen wearing a ring on numerous public occasions. Johnson went on to confirm in an interview with People, that the pair had got married in Copenhagen in early 2023. They now reside in London.

January 2020 streaming incident

On January 2, 2020, Johnson streamed on Instagram Live in a video of what appeared to be her intoxicated in a room. During the live stream, an older male alleged by those close to Johnson as being her producer since she was 15, Steven Wetherbee, is heard talking and seen wrapping his arms around Johnson and kissing her. The older male then repeatedly asks Johnson whether or not she is on Instagram, warning her to stay off of it as it could damage his career. In a stream later the same evening, a male voice asks about Instagram again, then Instagram Live, and then takes Johnson’s phone away. His face is briefly on the stream before it is paused and eventually ends.

Fans reacted to the video with calls to action out of concern Johnson was suffering potential grooming and abuse from Wetherbee, due to the vast age difference between the two (Johnson being 23 and Wetherbee 67 at the time) and Johnson’s recent risqué streams and apparent intoxicated behavior, as well as her song “DNA” which talks about and has visuals of repeating cycles of alcoholism and domestic violence. However, neither Wetherbee nor Johnson have responded to inquiries regarding the incident. Steve Wetherbee’s social media profiles have since been deactivated and Johnson’s personal YouTube account saw a hiatus for two years after the incident.

In a video released January 4, 2023, Johnson finally opened up about the repeated abuse she suffered and confirmed her producer at the time was taking advantage of her in the Instagram Live incident. She went on to state she felt trapped in the situation, was lured out of her sobriety by Wetherbee, and went on Instagram Live as a cry for help.
