UPDATE Friday October 2, 11am: Disturbing reports about Jeffree Star allegedly physically and sexually assaulting a number of victims in the 2000s have surfaced this morning. Full story here.
We regret to inform you that Jeffree Star is at it again.
Disgraced beauty YouTuber and makeup mogul Jeffree Star has reportedly been robbed by his new boyfriend, according to [checks notes] Jeffree Star. And they say love is dead.
A screen grab of Jeffree's (now-deleted) Instagram comment accusing his boyfriend, basketball player Andre Marhold, of stealing from him is currently going viral on social media. “Hey! Since you can’t answer the phone right now, can you give me all the stuff back that you stole from my house?? What kind of lowlife fucking scum does that? Give it back!!!! If you need a return label, just ask”, Jeffree said. Yikes. Peep his comment below.
Here's Jeffree responding to the alleged robbery in an Instagram story where he says “sometimes when you meet people – surprise! – they’re not who they say they are”, he says, implying that Marhold has "no job, no money, not even a bank account". He apparently deleted the story soon after posting it, but as we know, the internet never forgets. Female viewers be warned that Jeffree mainly says “bitch” a LOT in this vid. Like a lot.
Online at least, people had limited sympathy for the controversial YouTuber, pointing out that the makeup artist has a reputation for confected drama and pettiness (there were even reports he lied about a warehouse robbery for a publicity boost). “Reminds me of when my ex tried to text me an invoice of every gift he ever bought me once we’d broken up. I can see J* being that petty”, one Reddit user said.
Others weren’t too bothered by the accusation, even in the unlikely possibility it was true.
Jeffree Star doesn’t exactly have a great reputation at the moment. The YouTube star has been accused of gaslighting, anti-semitism, racism, xenophobia, body-shaming, complicity in sexual assault and opportunistic support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
As another Reddit user wryly observed, “couldn’t have happened to another guy”.
