Zach Jelks was born on March 17, 2000, in Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America. He completed high school from the Greater Atlanta Christian School and is now a student at the Kennesaw State University.
He has a sister. He has had to face a double tragedy while growing up. He lost his mother, Kathleen Bernice Jelks, on July 25, 2011, when Zach was just 11 years old. Seven years later, in 2018, he lost his elder brother, Isaiah. Zach was then away at college. He later made a video sharing his experience of finding out about his brother’s death.
Zach Jelks has been part of quite a few controversies. Toward the end of 2019, when rapper Juice Wrld passed away due to a drug-induced seizure, a few people on social media began mocking his death by posting dance videos pretending to have seizures by shaking and spitting out water. Zach had reportedly posted a similar video before Juice Wrld’s death. However, the rapper’s fans were offended. Zach later clarified that he had not tried to pretend to have a seizure.
Similarly, in mid-2020, Zach was dragged into another controversy when he made a rape joke mentioning Michael Jackson. Apparently, Zach had posted a clip that showed a photo of the deceased "King of Pop" and then showed himself pretending to be a child getting sexually assaulted by him. Following this, fellow TikTok star Hadiya lashed back at him indirectly, by answering a fan’s questions about her reaction to the video.
Zach Jelks then posted an apology video saying those who thought he had made a rape joke were wrong and that it was “the dumbest thing” he had ever heard. He then posted a second apology video, stating that he had toned down his content. However, he also attacked Hadiya, saying, being a Black Lives Matter supporter, she should focus on lifting other black artists up rather than berating them. However, Zach continued getting hate messages and comments on the internet and thus decided to take a formal break from social media.
He then posted a message on social media, thanking his fans for their support and said that he would be back online someday. However, he was back soon, with a post on Instagram, joking about being “cancelled.”
When asked about his favorite travel destination, Zach said it was Dubai, as he loved its luxurious appeal.
