Makeup mogul Jeffree Star parted ways with longterm boyfriend Nathan Schwandt in January — but months later, their seemingly amicable split was plagued with drama, and fans are chiming in on the matter via TikTok.

Although his initial parting with Schwandt was explained as a mutual breakup, Star later opened up about the fallout of their split in a house tour video, claiming that “dark” issues were afoot behind the scenes.

However, the YouTuber refrained from going into detail about the matter, stating that there could be potential legal consequences for doing so — but that isn’t stopping fans from chiming in with their two cents on the subject.

Top YouTuber Jeffree Star admitted to some “dark” legal drama surrounding his split with ex-boyfriend Nathan Schwandt, after revealing he’d taken back the Aston Martin he’d “given” him as a gift.

In a video uploaded on April 25, Star reacted to “mean” TikToks about himself, some of which commented on his breakup with Schwandt with not-so-subtle accusations that his ex was merely using him for his money.

One video showed Schwandt’s fashion transformation from his older photos to red-carpet pictures with Star, paired with the caption, “When you’re straight, but your homeboy can buy you drugs.”

“I’m quitting today!” Star laughed, moving out of frame of the camera. “Bye guys, you finish this! …Y’all are really f**king sick. Sickening!”

Since Star opened up about the drama, fans have been highly critical of Schwandt, with some even accusing him of using Star for his money.

Another TikTok similarly paired old photos of Schwandt to Lil Kayla’s ‘Make His Pockets Hurt,’ with the caption, “When you pretend to be gay for the money, cars, and gifts.”

“You guys are really, really sick!” Star jokingly screamed after watching the video.

This isn’t the first time Star has reacted to critical TikToks either; the YouTuber uploaded a similar video weeks earlier, where he called out a fan who claimed to have broken into his home.

Although it’s unclear whether Star was down for the brutal criticism of his ex in his latest reaction video, or was actually speaking out against the TikToks, he has yet to open up further regarding the “dark” issues surrounding their breakup, which continues to garner speculation across the net after a fan account even created a fake Instagram profile for Schwandt.

Whatever the case may be, its clear that fans aren’t happy with the drama — and Star isn’t spilling the tea, just yet.

Jake Paul reveals how much money he made from Nate Robinson fight

Despite holding a professional record of just two wins and no losses, YouTube sensation Jake Paul is already making more than most professional boxers will ever see in their careers off the back of his Nate Robinson fight.

Jake Paul is still relatively fresh to the sport of boxing. Following a lone amateur win, his first professional bout came at the start of 2020. He’s just closed out the year with another victory. Both pro matchups went his way thanks to two early knockouts against fellow YouTube AnEsonGib and former NBA player Nate Robinson.

He’s barely spent a few minutes inside the ring across both fights, however he’s already taking home a good chunk of change for his efforts. The internet celebrity brings legions of fans with him, contributing to huge Pay Per View sales and even viral trends after the fact.

Rather than a guaranteed figure for his latest scrap, his earnings were dependent on the performance of the PPV as a whole.

As one of the biggest PPV events of the year – reaching over a million buys in the United States alone, according to analyst Dan Rafael – Paul cashed in big-time thanks to his unique contract for the fight.

The disclosed purses for both Paul and Robinson were a little off-base, as ESPN’s Mark Raimondi exposed in a December 3 interview with Paul. Initial figures were slim, but Paul assured he was paid “a lot,” even laughing when the topic was brought up.

No exact figure was revealed, though he did provide some staggering insight. “Eight figures” is what Paul walked away at an absolute minimum just for the performance alone. “My deal was built into the backend structure of how well the event performed,” he explained. “The event performed incredibly well.”

Walking away with $10,000,000 at a minimum sure sounds like a lot. This number doesn’t factor in potential sponsorship deals or additional PPV buys that come in after the initial batch. There are also international sales to consider as well.

It’s clear he has no signs of slowing down anytime soon either. “I truly believe I will be the biggest prize fighter in the world,” he added.

Segment begins at 9:57.

“Mike Tyson is co-signing me, he wants to take me under his wing. Why can’t I become the champion of the world?”

Paul has some lofty goals and even “realistic” aspirations of fighting Conor McGregor sometime in the near future. It’s entirely possible these eight-figure paychecks are just the beginning for Paul in his boxing career.
