After a quiet month on YouTube, Jeffree Star has returned to the platform to set the record straight about recent drama to his 17.2 million subscribers. 

It’s clear that 2020 hasn’t been the most plain-sailing year for makeup mogul Jeffree Star. Following his breakup with long-time boyfriend Nathan Schwandt at the start of this year, he has been at the center of numerous controversies.

These include backlash against his ORGY palette, accusations of racist behavior, “poisonous lies” about James Charles to Tati Westbrook, and most recently, the very public and messy split between him and squeeze Andre Marhold, wherein Star publicly accused the professional basketball player of “robbing” him of a few designer items.

Since Star went public with these accusations against Marhold, the plot continued to thicken, with several false accounts posing as Marhold popping up and sharing photos of STD medications they claimed belonged to Star.

One of these accounts even messaged Star, telling him that his relationship with Marhold was all just a “game”.

One of the fake accounts spread rumors about Jeffree Star’s sexual health.

After confirming the invalidity of these accounts on social media, Star has been relatively quiet about the breakdown of his relationship with Marhold and these accusations. Until now.

Breaking his silence on YouTube, Star set the record straight about his ex and these surrounding rumors.

“I was recently hanging out with someone, but we are not hanging out anymore,” Star said.

Within minutes of the video, Star made it clear that the future wasn’t looking bright for his sticky-fingered ex, as he confirmed that he was being prosecuted for stealing from him.

As for the false accounts, Star exclaimed that “the internet is a little cuckoo at the moment”, before clarifying that the people behind the accounts had also been caught by the police.

“Thank God for IP addresses and law enforcement,” Star sighed.

In the video, he also revealed his dog Diva’s diagnosis with cancer, gave viewers a tour of his latest home renovations, and promised to upload more regularly in the future.

After previously teasing the video on Twitter, Star made good on his promise to fans to give them a “full life update”.

However, as a lot of fans pointed out, what was unusual about Star’s video was the lack of explanation about his latest controversy.

In an expose by Insider, it was revealed that Star colluded with a former fan to delete a series of Tweets – which included jokes about r*pe and sleeping with straight men –  at the height of his feud with James Charles.

He initially promised to give the fan free tickets to an event, but then blocked the fan and berated them after they emailed his assistant. He said to the fan that his “energy felt really ugly” and “entitled” before blocking him.

Meanwhile, accusations about Star’s conduct and allegedly predatory behavior are re-circulating online after his former fan spoke to Insider. He is yet to comment on them.


Mike Majlak reveals why he’s broken up with Lana Rhoades

Mike Majlak and Lana Rhoades have been the sweethearts of the internet world for quite some time, but their relationship is officially over, with Mike Majlak breaking the news on YouTube.

Mike Majlak and Lana Rhoades have been in a relationship together for ten months. It’s been a widely publicized roller coaster ride filled with ups and downs. However, it was one that many mutual fans loved to see.

It was also the only relationship Mike Majlak has been involved in throughout the past decade. But sadly, not all relationships can stand the test of time, and the two of them have officially parted ways.

Mike Majlak broke the news in a YouTube video. “Never thought id ever put out a breakup video but this one was necessary,” he said. “I wanted the story told my way before others could tarnish what was an incredible relationship and part of my journey.”

In the video, Mike Majlak explains that he felt like the fans deserved an explanation since the breakup happened out of the blue. “There’s no one specific reason [for the breakup],” he said. “It wasn’t a loyalty thing.”

“The best thing about Amara [which is her real name] is that she’s so fiercely loyal,” he added. “I never once had to worry about her cheating [or] talking to any other guys. It was never about other guys.”

His comment immediately shuts down rumors and accusations that she cheated on him. It’s often the first thing people suspect when there’s a sudden breakup.

Instead, he claimed they were simply “two people who wanted vastly different things.”

Mike Majlak and Lana Rhoades always looked madly in love.

“Amara was… obsessed with the idea of linear and traditional life and love,” he said. “She wanted to meet a guy, she wanted to settle down, she wanted to have a family and just live this kind of linear life.”

“That’s just not who I am,” he said. He also claimed she was “trying to facilitate the vision that she saw for the relationship, which was getting a house and moving in with her.”

However, while it made “made complete sense to her,” it didn’t to him, and it didn’t feel right to go ahead with it. 

In the end, there were too many signs that they wanted “two vastly different things in life” and “weren’t cut out to be together” and “go the distance.”

The breakup has been hard on them both, so to make things easier, they’ve been trying not to talk and keeping their distance.

It’s a sad end for one of the more beloved internet couples in recent times, but it’s certainly not a bitter one. The two of them have clearly thought long and hard about the decision.

In the end, it seems like calling it quits made the most sense in the long run, but they’ve parted ways on good terms.
