Become a Star

After developing feelings for a student named Amber at school, Jay Alvarrez grew fascinated with photography at a young age. They both left school in the seventh grade because they believed they could use their creativity to gain money. He made the decision to leave home at the age of 15 in order to fully pursue his passion. Lacking sufficient funds to support himself, he had to seize every chance to work any odd job he could find in order to save money for his passion: exotic travel. He lost his mother that same year, which emotionally broke him and sent him into severe despair. But he believes that despair and creativity go hand in hand since it gave him the courage to finally be himself and live life without restraints. He made the decision to post pictures and videos of his travels throughout the world and involvement in extreme activities like skydiving on various social media platforms after realizing that social media was “becoming a thing” at the time.

Initially using Tumblr, Jay Alvarrez quickly transitioned to Instagram and YouTube. His popularity on social media and his at-the-time connection with Alexis Ren both helped him gain his big break as a model. He put it this way: “The paychecks just got bigger and the job just kept getting crazier.” He eventually grew accustomed to his new way of life, which included summers spent in Greece and the Mediterranean, autumns spent in Los Angeles and Miami, winters spent in Dubai and South East Asia, and spring ends in Central America and the Caribbean.

Disputes and scandals

After their breakup, Jay Alvarrez, who had dated Alexis Ren from 2014 to 2016, engaged in a public argument with her on social media. Fans began to speculate that something was wrong with their seemingly ideal relationship even before they made their split official. However, Alexis initiated a cryptic message-filled Twitter rage in February 2017. She went so far as to say that the reason for the separation was that “the relationship wasn’t good for his business anymore.” It turned heated when she made crude comments about his privates, to which he responded by contradicting her assertions. Additionally, he advised her to stop being resentful and grow up.

Individual Life of Jay Alvarrez

On July 5, 1995, Jay Alvarrez was born in Oahu, Hawaii. He fled home at age 15 after quitting school in the seventh grade. He claimed that his mother had kept him in check, but after she passed away when he was 15 he experienced emotional difficulties. Ironically, despite having the life of his dreams, he gradually became weary of his current activities and experienced homesickness. After three long years, he packed his bags and headed back to Hawaii in the summer of 2017 in an effort to lead a more balanced existence. He missed his family and friends on the little island in the Pacific Ocean so much. He made the decision to purchase the ideal surf cottage on the same beach where he grew up because he had enough money saved up from his job. His current focus is on “mentally and psychologically” developing himself. He acknowledged in a tweet that he has ADHD as well as dyslexia.

Alvarrez had started getting messages from fans from all over the world telling him how he had motivated them to leave their tiny town and try something new. Alvarrez had always considered himself an outcast who had different opinions, feelings, and interests than other people. In March 2018, he released the compilation video “Jay In The Simulation EP #1 – Who is Jay Alvarrez?” with clips from his past work and narration that narrates his life’s journey. With this upload, he rekindled his love for making short episodic videos after being lost in the world of making animations, house music, and virtual reality videos.
