Jeffree Star Officially Responds To Those Kanye West Rumors

Jeffree Star on YouTube (2021)

We’re a little over a week into 2021, and it’s already proving to be one of the most interesting years on record. This has certainly been the case in the realm of celebrity news, with reports recently surfacing that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are allegedly on the brink of divorce. However, this report led to a strange rumor that claimed that the divorce was partially attributed to West allegedly sleeping with YouTube beauty guru Jeffree Star. The internet personality initially posted a photo that appeared to mock the situation but, now, he’s setting the record straight.

TikTok influencer Ava Louise was the person to claim that Kanye West and Jeffree Star had engaged in a relationship years ago. Though Louise claimed her source was legitimate, she didn’t reveal them, saying that she could be sued if she did. She later added that the person was allegedly a big-time, entertainment lawyer who was familiar with West’s and Kim Kardashian’s divorce.

Needless to say, the rumor caused quite a stir around the web. Upon hearing the news himself, Jeffree Star took to his YouTube channel to address Louise’s claim in a video, and he was not too thrilled when he read the headlines:

So I'm scrolling on the internet and I read the dumbest shit I think I've ever read my entire life… I woke up out of bed, and the headline reads, 'Kanye West Might Be Sleeping With Jeffree Star.' I can't. I'm like, 'How did we even get to this moment?' How would that even be made up? Because we both live in the same state?’ I guess some girl made up a whole lie on TikTok and it went 'viral.'

It definitely sounds like Jeffree Star found the rumor to be pretty outlandish, especially considering that he and Kanye West live in totally different places and run in different social circles. In the same video, he later doubled down on the rumor not being true:

Let me just say this one time for any news outlet. I like really very tall men, me and Kanye have never hung out, and this whole thing is really funny. So I guess if this is the start to my new year, Happy New Year.

Well, at the very least, the public can now rule out an affair with Jeffree Star as a reason for the potential dissolution of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s marriage. Divorce rumors have surrounded the two for a while now, with it most recently being reported that they have been “living separate lives.” The initial divorce report also cited the difference in the pair’s priorities as a cause for the potential divorce. The situation has become such a point of public interest that many are now watching to see when Kardashian is and isn’t wearing her wedding ring. Still, reports indicate that the two have still spent time together and even bought each other expensive holiday gifts.

Neither Kim Kardashian nor Kanye West have publicly responded to the divorce reports as of this writing. Keep it here at CinemaBlend for updates on their situation as they arrive and for more news from the world of TV and movies.
