Early life and education
Purpled is being raised in Virginia by his mother, about whom nothing’s known as he respects her privacy; because he hasn’t spoken of his father, it’s believed by many that he had abandoned the family when Purpled was still a toddler. Purpled has two older brothers who are currently attending college.
He grew up being interested in tennis, and played for his high school’s team; he was apparently the best on the team. In February 2017 when he was 13 years old, he played “Bed Wars” against the YouTuber and now former player of the game Secret Fish; it was this YouTuber who motivated and encouraged Purpled to launch his YouTube channel, having seen potential in him.
Purpled followed his advice, and also soon became one of the best “Bed Wars” players in the world; he once placed second in the category Solo Wins (today 18th), and also second in the category Solo Final Kills (now 16th).
Purpled has matriculated just recently in 2021, and has chosen to focus on his career as a gamer and YouTuber, rather than pursue a college degree.

There are also those who believe that he’s today in a relationship with a non-celebrity American girl, but prefers to keep this a secret, because of how it might affect his popularity on the internet; this hasn’t been confirmed either.
