After Stranger Things season four aired, Noah Schnapp entered a disagreement with singer and rapper Doja Cat when he shared their messages online.

Doja had asked Noah to be put in touch with Stranger Things’ new addition Joseph Quinn in a private conversation, but the 17-year-old shared screenshots of the texts on a now-deleted TikTok commenting: “Slide into his DMs,” while adding Joseph’s account.

On 7 July 2022, Doja took to the social media platform to rant about the situation saying:

“First let’s be chill about it. To be fair, this is like a kid. Noah is like, I don’t know how old he is, but he’s not even over 21 years old…When you’re that young, you make mistakes.

“The fact that Noah did that, like went and posted a private conversation between me and him is so unbelievably socially unaware and whack…I made an assumption that he was gonna be chill about it, and he went and shared that information that I didn’t feel comfortable with him sharing.”


Caroline Gregory

There were rumours that Noah Schnapp was trying to start chatting to TikTok star Caroline Gregory after he commented on one of her videos.

The female TikToker posted a clip of her dancing on a beach, lip-syncing to Avril Lavigne’s ‘What the Hell?’ to which Noah replied “Uh hi”.

However, Gregory is in a relationship with Asher Angel, who immediately shut down any flirtatious comment.
