She made the announcement in an interview with Teen Vogue, telling the publication: “I want to announce that I’m bisexual, and I’m now proud to be a part of the LGBTQ+ community.”
Olivia went on to say that she decided to publicly come out after fellow social media star JoJo Siwa opened up about her sexuality.
She said: “I saw that and thought ‘Wow, that’s really amazing for young children now because she’s such a big role model’. And she’s really become almost a role model for me to look up to as well.
“I want to let young girls know that it’s okay to not even know your sexuality until you’re older. I think it should be more normalized to come out [when you’re ready for it].”
