She made her first on-screen appearance in an episode of Will & Grace in 2018 and she also had a small background role in the movie And Then You.
2. She’s Very Popular On TikTok
Katarina might not be as famous as her boyfriend, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t built a strong fan base. She has a solid presence on TikTok with more than 820,000 followers.

3. She’s 17
According to Famous Birthdays, Katarina was born in February of 2004 which makes her 17 years old. Needless to say, though, she isn’t your typical teen. Most people her age are getting ready for their senior year of high school, but it’s unclear if Kat attends a traditional school or if she is home-schooled.
4. She Has Shown Support For The Black Lives Matter Movement
Having a big following on social media comes with a lot of influence and Katarina has decided to use hers to raise awareness to racism and police brutality. On her Instagram and TikTok profiles, she has a link to several petitions regarding issues of people who were murdered by police.
5. She’s Very Stylish
From what we can tell, Katarina doesn’t have any professional modeling experience at the moment, but it wouldn’t be surprising if that’s something she decided to get into at some point. She seems to really love fashion and she has a great eye for putting outfits together. On top of that, she has the confidence to rock just about anything.
6. She’s A Private Person
Even though Katarina has built a large following online, she has done it without sharing much information about her life away from the internet. Very little is known about her other than the fact that her last name is actually Demetriades, she lives in the Los Angeles area, and she has a sister.
7. She Loves To Travel
At 17 years old, Katarina has already seen more of the world than most people can even imagine.

Some of the countries she’s been to are Venezuela, Dubai, Italy, Colombia, and South Africa.
8. She Has Some Haters
Any time a person starts getting a lot of attention, there are always going to be people who come out of the woodwork and try to tear them down for no reason. That’s something Katarina has already experienced. She has her fair share of haters, and someone even set up an Instagram account called katarina.deme.before.photoshop. It appears that whoever is behind the page believes that Katarina heavily edits her pictures and has had some cosmetic procedures.
9. She Likes Spending Time Outdoors
Don’t let Katarina’s pretty face fool you into thinking she’s this dainty person who doesn’t want to bother with nature. That couldn’t be further from the truth. She actually enjoys being outside. According to her bio on IMDB, she loves a variety of outdoor activities such as horseback riding, surfing, and snowboarding.
10. She Met The Kid Laroi Through A Friend
Love has a way of dinging people when they least expect it, and that’s how things happened for Katarina and The Kid Laroi. Daily UK News reported that The Kid Laroi said, “We met through a mutual friend that I had when I came around here. Around the time that I met her, I just put out the whole F*** Love project and was not in the vibe of love. But I guess… you can’t control some of that type of stuff. It was so ironic.”
