Is Jake Shane Nepo Baby?

Is Jake Shane Nepo Baby? People are wondering if Jake Shane is a nepo baby because of his presence at Richie-Grainge’s wedding.

User @marykatev posted a video on April 23 shortly after the Richie-Grainge wedding, detailing which A-list attendees were present and how they were acquainted with the Richie and Grainge families.

The maker of the video claimed matter-of-factly that Shane is “cousins with the Grainge family,” but he offered no evidence to support the assertion.

In addition, Richie and Grainge clarify in a video released on July 25th with Vogue that Shane isn’t, in fact, their cousin, despite their prior jokes to the contrary.

Before the event, Shane told Elite Daily that it was “full of so much love and happiness,” but he withheld information regarding how he received the invitation.

However, the cousin theory appeared to hold at first, but at some point, the story shifted from “family members” to “family friends.”

A disclaimer that should be included in all Shane/Richie conspiracy videos since the two haven’t “fessed up to the details of their friendship” was stated by Cora Breilein (@corabreilein) in a video analyzing whether or not Shane is a nepo baby.

The creator and the model are rumored to have met through Richie’s sister-in-law, Alice.
