Jeffree Star Has Something To Say To Those Who Think His Warehouse Robbery Didn't Happen
Jeffree Star is back with a new video, in which he says he knows fans are downplaying his make-up warehouse robbery and he finds that “shocking”. But can you actually downplay what looks like legitimate police reports?
If you remember, back in 2019, Jeffree alleged his warehouse had been robbed of USD $2.5 million worth of make-up. TMZ reported burglars had 'cut a hole through the roof' of the building and taken thousands of lip liners and concealers. Jeffree said at the time that a “major player” had been arrested in connection with the robbery, but then never spoke of it again.
I never knew I’d be spending my Monday night with the FBI tracking down black market makeup sellers.

I don’t even know where to begin right now.. The last few weeks have been so mentally exhausting but I’m so grateful for all the law enforcement & FBI agents who have been working on my #Concealer heist 🙏🏻 A major player who has been selling my stolen product has been arrested.

Then, in June this year, the robbery came up again after YouTuber D’Angelo Wallace tweeted alongside an article about a 2017 robbery in LA: “Ya’ll notice that Jeffree Star’s robbery story is EXACTLY the same as this actually real makeup warehouse robbery story that happened a year prior?” D’Angelo added: “But somehow there are no police statement’s about Jeff’s?”.
Last tweet before I go and finish today's video (which talks about this):

Then came July, when a Twitter user shared what looks like the official LAPD public record of the theft. “Total value of the theft was $10,000, with an additional $30,000 in physical damages according to LAPD,” they wrote alongside it. In a separate tweet, they added: “This is a long ways away from the $2.5 million in cosmetics @JeffreeStar claims to have lost.”
To be fair, the actual cost of the goods could've been $10k of merchandise, but with the insane margin mark-up make-up is known to have, it could've potentially retailed for significantly more. Millions though? It's unlikely.

Now, in a video that dropped over the weekend, the Jeffree Star Cosmetics CEO finally addressed the accusations. “There’s someone that tried to say that there’s a police report from Jeffree Star Cosmetics, that our warehouse and our robber, that we only had $10,000 of things lost. It’s all so silly, but people run with things and I get it, this is what 2020 is about," he said.
“A lot of people are bored and miserable, and just want to make up shit all day. I’m used to it,” he continued. “It’s just shocking the levels of things people are believing now. I’m like, you guys, there was 30,000 units of just concealer stolen, and so many other things. It was so horrifying and awful and scary. So for someone to try and minimize it like it’s a hoax, I’m like…”
He finished: “But sadly, my robbery was real. No matter what anyone wants to say. And that was over a year ago so I can’t even believe that was brought up again.” Hmm: doth he protest too much, perhaps?
