Kio has kept his personal life private, but in 2020, he hinted he might be dating model Olivia Ponton. In their Q&A video on Kio’s YouTube channel, the two denied dating rumors and said that they were just friends. But evidence may suggest otherwise: the pair posted a photo of them kissing on Olivia’s Instagram, and she captioned the shot “My sunshine.”
The social media star has dealt with some controversy recently. In a live post, Kio was singing along with a song and repeated a racial slur from the song. In response to hate comments, Kio said: “You know what? It’s a song, OK.”
In addition, Kio has come under fire for allegedly going after young girls. The rumors originated from an unedited interview that Sway House member Josh said went on YouTube accidentally. Fellow Sway House members could be heard saying that Kio “pulls” the most girls, and Josh says that his girls are usually 15 or 16 years old. When the video was posted, Kio was 19 years old.
On social media, one girl came out and validated the story. She said: “yeah i’m done he flirts with 16 year olds when he’s literally 19 and he told me he wanted a relationship with me “to be able to say i love you” yet was talking to at least 3 other girls while we were talking.”
In his video with girlfriend Olivia, she defended him against this claim and said they were both older when they met. “I’m not 15! That was a lie, he does not do that stuff,” she said. “Y’all are just tripping about it. I have gone through his phone, he does not talk to 15 year olds.”
