Early life and education
ImAllexx was raised in London alongside his brother Will Elmsie, by their parents about whom nothing’s known, as they prefer to keep their private matters to themselves, but it’s believed that their father’s a real estate agent, and that their mother’s a housewife.
ImAllexx became interested in various activities while attending a local elementary school, as he played soccer and basketball with his peers, while he also appeared in a couple of plays performed at the school. It’s widely believed that he was around 10 years old when he realized that he was attracted to both boys and girls. Upon completing his elementary school education in 2013, ImAllexx launched his YouTube channel and began uploading videos onto it, steadily building his fanbase.
He continued being interested in various activities at high school, and upon matriculating in 2017, ImAllexx chose to focus on his career on the internet and didn’t enroll at college.
More about his career as a YouTuber
ImAllexx launched his second channel “Alex Elmslie” on 7 October 2016, which is today subscribed to by over 200,000 people, and numbers more than 4.6 million views of all his videos combined.

At the very start of his career as a YouTuber in 2013, ImAllexx was mostly focused on uploading videos which featured him playing the video game “FIFA”, as well as various other games, but he only became very popular in early 2017.
There has been some controversy surrounding ImAllexx. In May 2019, the YouTuber Tati Westbrook accused another YouTuber James Charles of trying to seduce and convince straight men that they were gay. Without waiting to hear what James had to say, ImAllexx sided with Tati, and claimed that he also believed that James was guilty, however, after James uploaded his video “No More Lies” showing that Tati was wrong, ImAllexx apologized to James.
On 10 June 2019, the former girlfriend of the YouTuber Slazo, named Chey, tweeted about how Slazo was both emotionally and sexually abusive during their relationship, and ImAllexx as well as various other YouTubers including Weest and Kingani supported Chey.
Slazo soon provided evidence showing that Chey’s allegations were lies, however, ImAllexx still refused to apologize, and was criticized by the community, various popular YouTubers, and this led him to lose many subscribers.
He has also accused the social media star and YouTuber Zaptie of being a pedophile and a sociopath, and while other people who also accused Zaptie have since apologized (BionicPig and ElvisTheAlien), ImAllexx hasn’t.
ImAllexx launched his Twitch channel on 20 August 2013, and has since amassed over 140,000 followers, and more than 600,000 views of all his livestreams combined.
