Early life and education

Chris is very close to Halsey and she has stated in one of her interviews how she always thinks of him when she’s scared, as he has always been there for her. In 2017, Chris accompanied Halsey to the Grammys, after they spent years joking about how Halsey will bring him as a date if she ever gets invited to the Grammys.

Who is Halsey?
Ashley Nicolette Frangipane was born in Edison, New Jersey USA, on 29 September 1994 – her zodiac sign is Libra and she holds American nationality. She is a singer-songwriter and an actress, who gained recognition after she started uploading her music onto the internet.
By the time she turned 14, Halsey already knew how to play the cello, viola and the violin, and then started practicing acoustic guitar. She spent most of her spare time during her teenage years listening to the band Brand New and artists Justin Bieber and Alanis Morissette, who have influenced her music a lot.
Halsey was often bullied at school, and so tried to kill herself at the age of 17, followed by a 17-day long hospitalization. She then started using drugs, and dating a man who was seven years older than her, but it was around this time that Halsey started writing her songs.
She matriculated from Warren Hills Regional High School in 2012, and then started attending Rhode Island School of Design, but dropped out due to it being too expensive. She enrolled at another college and dropped out again when her parents decided she should leave the house – Halsey went to live in a basement with several drug addicts, and at one point thought about becoming a prostitute.
It was in 2012 that she began uploading her music videos onto YouTube, and after she collaborated with a singer on the song “Ghost” in 2014, she was contacted by a couple of record labels, eventually signing with Astralwerks. Her first extended play (EP) came out on 27 October 2014 entitled “Room 93”, appearing on the two charts Top Heatseekers and US Billboard 200, then on 27 August 2015, she released her debut album – “Badlands” – which peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. Her second album was released on 2 June 2017 entitled “Hopeless Fountain Kingdom”, and most recently on 28 August 2020, Halsey’s live album came out entitled “Badlands – Live from Webster Hall”.
She has composed and sung soundtracks for around 24 movies and TV series, and has appeared in roughly 40 movies and TV series (including her music videos), as well as being invited onto over 40 talk-shows.
She is quite open when it comes to her love life – she’s bisexual. She dated the Norwegian music producer Lido in 2016, and in 2017 began dating American rapper G-Eazy. Halsey went on to date British rock singer Yungblud, in November 2018, but they broke-up several months later. In September 2019, she started seeing Evan Peters, an American actor, but they split in mid-2020.
She is suffering from endometriosis, and believes that this is why she miscarried her baby in 2015.
Halsey is a huge fan of tattoos and has had around 30 tattooed since her teenage years – her most noticeable tattoo might be the horseshoe on her right shoulder.
She has won 21 awards and has been nominated for around 50 others – in 2019, Halsey held three Guinness World Records for Most Viewed YouTube music videos in 24 hours, and Most viewed YouTube video in 24 hours for the song “Boy with Luv”, which she performed with the seven-member South Korean K-pop group BTS.
