Makeup guru Jeffree Star has a new boyfriend - and he's African American, MTO News has learned. Jeffree posted a pic of him and his new bae on IG yesterday.
And he gave us a hint as to what his bae does for a living. According to Jeffree, who lives in Los Angeles, his new bae is a "gangster rapper." Jeff didn't specify which "gang" his boyfriend is affiliated with, however.
This is an interesting turn of events, especially since Jeffree was accused of making racist statements against Blacks on social media last year. And in response, fans organized a boycott against his companies. Now he's dating a Black male.
Jeffree Star is an American entrepreneur, YouTuber and singer, and the founder and owner of Jeffree Star Cosmetics.
In 2009, Star released his first and only studio album, Beauty Killer, which included songs such as "Lollipop Luxury" featuring Nicki Minaj. He embarked on several world tours to promote his music. In 2010, he signed to Konvict Muzik—whose founder Akon described Star as "the next Lady Gaga". However, Star abruptly left the music industry in 2013 due to legal issues Akon was facing between 2007 and 2010.
In November 2014, he founded the company Jeffree Star Cosmetics. In 2018, Star earned $18 million from his YouTube endeavors alone, according to Forbes. That was enough to make him the fifth-highest-paid YouTube star as of December 2018.
