A couple who went viral on TikTok and OnlyFans have been charged with the murder of a 29-year-old man.

Johntae Collier and Eric Dodds, both 23, gained an army of fans for their pro-LGBTQ+ content before they were arrested on suspicion of the murder of Dakota Bradshaw on August 1st.

Collier was initially arrested on August 10 after his home was raided by police, and Dodds set up a GoFundMe page to gather funds to prove his boyfriend's innocence.

However his freedom was short-lived and Dodds was also arrested less than a week later on August 16.

Bradshaw was reportedly shot inside his own home and taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after his arrival.

Witnesses reportedly spotted a red van and a blue Dodge Challenger, thought to be driven by the suspects, outside the victim's house around the time of the shooting,

The witnesses then said they saw the two vehicles leave shortly after gunshots were heard.

Prior to their arrest, Collier and Dodds boasted 789k followers on their TikTok account.

The pair regularly posted life updates and mini-vlogs showing what they were up to together often set to hip hop beats, as well as hopping on TikTok trends.

Posting to their joint TikTok page on the day of his arrest, Dodds said: "Y'all are concerned about John[tae], [and have asked] is he okay, has he harmed someone, has he [done] anything to someone.

"No, he has not done anything to no one. Y'all know John, John would not harm a soul.

"He's the most free-spirited, caring person that I know. He loves me even more than I love myself."

He added: "My baby will be home soon, he has not harmed a soul and I just wanted to clear the air.

"We'll be back together and back posting very soon."

Some of their fans even supported Dodds' innocence claim, with one fan writing: "y'all know people get wrongly accused right?!"
