Beauty YouTuber Jeffree Star has responded to rumors that he and boyfriend Nathan Schwandt have split, revealing they have indeed broken up, and explained why.

Rumors first began after Star removed ‘wifey of Nathan’ from his Instagram bio around December 7, and also canceled European tour dates. His masterclass co-host MMMMitchell also helped stoke the rumors by saying “I’m upset because my friend’s upset.”

Then, on January 9, the rumors snowballed even more, as Jeffree Star tweeted “Dear god please stop the pain.” Some fans even became concerned for both his physical and mental wellbeing. Now, on January 11, the makeup mogul has confirmed their breakup.

In a 17-minute YouTube video titled “We Broke Up,” Star explained why the pair came to the decision to end their five-year relationship. This came just weeks after the couple moved into a $14.6 million mansion in Hidden Hills, California.

He started off by stating that they both still care for each other deeply, but that it just wasn’t meant to be. “I just want to put on record that Nathan is the only man that I have ever been in love with. It’s hard because Nathan never wanted to be in the spotlight,” he said. “We fell for each other when we met, and we fell for each other so hard, and I’m grateful for him, and I’ll be grateful for him until the day I die because this is the only man that was ever confident enough to love me publicly, to love me for me fully. He changed my world.”

The 34-year-old then revealed that family members had tried to spread gossip and false stories through the media. “It really kills me to say, but we’ve had family try to reach out to the media to try and make money off of mine and Nathan’s breakup. I don’t even know how to process that,” he said. “We’re over here heartbroken dealing with our emotions, dealing with things behind the scenes, and there’s family trying to tell the media fake stories to get money out of it. There’s people I haven’t spoken to in years trying to talk about us. It’s been a lot.”

The YouTuber then went on to state that the pair’s mental health played a part in the reasons behind their breakup, citing Nathan losing his grandfather and the couple losing two of their beloved dogs. “There’s no crazy gossip, there’s no tea, this is actually really important and I don’t think enough celebrities and influencers talk about it, and that’s mental health,” he said.

“A few years ago, Nathan lost his grandfather in a very tragic way… We lost two dogs last year… We still haven’t even fully processed that. He hasn’t fully processed his grandfather. We haven’t even fully processed our dogs fully because this lifestyle is so crazy,” he continued. “Me and him have never sat down and full processed our emotions, we’re both broken. We were both so busy being there for each other, that we forgot to be there for ourselves.”

Star finished by stating that he’ll always have love his ex-boyfriend, but that they fell out of love with each other. “He met me when I had nothing, and he never changed, and that’s what I love the most, he stayed true to who he was,” he said. “Nate came over the other day and visited the dogs and it was so beautiful. There’s no custody battle, he can come over here whenever he wants… I think there’s a lot of things behind closed doors that people never know.”

Instagram: @jeffreestarThe pair dated for around five years before breaking up in December 2019.

Jeffree and Nathan began their relationship in 2014, and first met when the 26-year-old slid into the makeup star’s Instagram DMs. “We started talking online, we started texting, and then texting led to phone calls and FaceTime,” Star revealed in a 2016 video. “Then we decided a few months later to meet in person.”

The musician-turned-YouTuber has seen enormous success with his makeup line Jeffree Star Cosmetics, and is one of the top beauty gurus on the Google-owned platform with over 17 million subscribers.

Smash Melee star Ludwig Ahgren sent a Pokemon card Twitch stream into a meltdown when he pulled a 1st Edition Dragonite worth up to $10k. The gaming pro scored the rare collectible after streamer Trainwreckstv gave him the pack.

Pokemon cards have taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch as viewers flock to see their favorite personalities chase after the rarest Nintendo collectibles.

A live Trading Card Game box opening hosted by streamer Mizkif and his org One True King went off the rails on November 22 when Smash pro Ludwig scored a rare Dragonite that could have been Trainwrecks’.

Ludwig scores rare Pokemon card from 1999

The Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded for nothing on school playgrounds decades ago can now sell for as much as a house. The hobby has also become a major hit on sites like Twitch, with streamers buying sealed booster boxes from the 90s to open live for viewers.

On November 22, Twitch star Mizkif broke open 1st Edition sealed packs from the 1999 Fossil set. Those attending the event lost their minds when pro gamer Ludwig scored a 1st Edition Dragonite after streamer Trainwreckstv gave his pack to him.

The moment went viral due to the Twitch personality’s generosity backfiring. “Dude I swear to God if I said no to this pack to be fair and nice and its a good pack I want it back. Ludgwig, if this is good it’s my pack. If it’s bad, it’s your pack,” he exclaimed moments before the card was pulled. Unfortunately, the booster he passed on contained the exact rare holographic he was chasing after.

After the excitement settled, the group felt bad for Train’s incredibly bad luck. Although the popular Twitch star wasn’t too bitter about it, laughing it off on Twitter. If nothing else, he should be applauded for his generosity.

According to recent sales of the item, a 1st Edition Dragonite can sell anywhere from $8k to 9.7k depending on the grading. Luckily for Ludwig, the item looked incredibly pristine, giving him a good chance at a PSA 10 grading.
