Though they've stopped posting about each other on social media, Dixie D'Amelio and her boyfriend, TikTok star Noah Beck, are going strong.
In this week's PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday, the "Be Happy" singer says things have been "so great" between her and Beck since they decided to take their relationship offline.
"We're so much happier," says D'Amelio. "We have so much more fun when we don't post [our relationship]. People don't need to know what's going on, and they have no right to know. It's not like we have a relationship account that they follow. Follow us as [individual] people.”
The dynamic of the 21-year-old couple's relationship will be explored further in the second season of The D'Amelio Show, which premieres September 28 on Hulu, as he chatted to Beck and said, "People who follow us , believe they have a right to know everything that is going on in our lives.”
"It's not something that other 20-year-olds have to go through," adds Beck. "They don't get the limelight like we do."

D'Amelio first connected with Beck in 2020 after splitting from fellow TikTok player Griffin Johnson. The duo began posting together on social media this summer, but the couple didn't go public with their relationship until October 2020, when they were both 19 years old.
On the first season of The D'Amelio Show, D'Amelio spoke publicly about the pressures of dating Beck.
"People say, 'I won't believe in love unless it lasts' — that's a lot of pressure people put on. Because we're doing our best to just be our happiest selves in our relationship, and now we feel like people are counting on our relationship," she said.

Breakup rumors first surfaced in February when fans noticed that D'Amelio and Beck no longer shared their relationship online. Speculation mounted again in August when D'Amelio celebrated her 21st birthday with a trip to Las Vegas — and Beck was notably absent from the event.
On Aug. 11, Beck addressed the rumors on Twitter, saying that "work" prevented him from partying in Vegas.
“As a consumer of our content, please stop assuming the worst between us. We are both very hardworking and we understand that there is a lot of sacrifice involved in being or striving to be successful," he wrote. "We need the help of people who support/love us to take us up, not down."

Two weeks later, D'Amelio — who released her debut album, A Letter to Me, in June — addressed the breakup rumors herself at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards.
"As we've said a million times, we've decided to take our relationship off social media," she explained, adding that the decision was "better for our mental health."
