The news of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s split shook the world for the New Year, and with the surprising (maybe not so surprising) split, came a slew of wild rumors.
The most prominent was the rumor that Kanye West had been hooking up with Jeffree Star.
Star is an American entrepreneur, Youtuber, and singer as well as co-founder of Jeffree Star Cosmetics.
Rumors of Starr and West began to quickly circulate after West’s split with Kim, and it now seems as though Jeffree Star is setting the record straight that there is nothing going on between the two.
In a new video titled “Addressing the Kanye Situation”, Starr clarified: “Me and Kanye have never hung out, and this whole thing is really funny.”
Starr went on to say that the rumors started from infamous TikTok user Ava Louise: “This whole divorce comes as no surprise. Kanye’s been hooking up with a very famous beauty guru, male beauty guru. A lot of people in the scene have known for awhile.”
Starr went on to comment on his initial reaction upon seeing the rumors trending on Twitter, amidst the Kim and Kanye split: “So I’m scrolling on the internet and I read the dumbest s**t I think I’ve ever read my entire life…And the headline reads, ‘Kanye West might be sleeping with Jeffree Star.’ I can’t.”
Starr questioned how Louise’s rumors even went viral: How did we even get to this moment?’ How would that even be made up? Because we both live in the same state?” Both West and Starr own property in Hidden Hills, California, and Wyoming.
Allegedly, Kim and Kanye’s relationship has been on the rocks for months according to numerous sources close to the two. The split went public for the two on January 5th of 2021. The two had four kids together, North (7), Saint 95), Chicago (2), and Psalm (1).
