Previously on: this chaotic drama. At the start of January, rumours began to circulate that Kanye West cheated on Kim Kardashian-West with Jeffree Star, which was one of the reasons behind their apparent divorce. As the internet started to implode, the rumour was traced back to controversial TikToker Ava Louise, who single-handedly started the baseless claim with a viral video. Get across the bizarre backstory right here.
Jeffree Star made vague allusions to Kanye on Twitter, and began deleting his previous tweets praising the rapper's videos. Over the weekend, Star has directly addressed the claims for the first time. In a 23-minute long video dubbed 'Addressing the Kanye Situation', Star tells of how bizarre it was to wake up one morning to claims he was sleeping with Kanye all over internet.
Starting the video talking generally about how crazy the rumour is, Star says directly to the camera a few minutes in, "let me just say this one time to any news outlet. I like very tall men. Me and Kanye have never hung out, and this whole thing is really funny."
Star then says: "I guess if this is the start to my new year… happy new year." We feel the same way, tbh.
To add to this, a source close to the Kardashian-West family told E! News there is "absolutely no truth to the Jeffree and Kanye rumours."
So there you have it. The Jeffree and Kanye rumours could well be baseless claims conjured up for TikTok clout. Is this good news? Bad news? I can no longer tell.
