YouTube star and makeup mogul Jeffree Star admitted to his highly-speculated split with ex-boyfriend Nathan Schwandt in early 2020 — but it seems that there’s more to their breakup than he initially let on.

While Star has been decidedly silent on the subject after uploading a video explaining their parting in January, he shocked fans across the net after updating the title and description of an older upload from 2019.

The video’s original title, “Surprising my boyfriend with his dream car,” was changed to, “Pretending to surprise my ex-boyfriend with his dream car,” with Star explaining in the description that he’d taken the vehicle back due to the title being in his name.

Jeffree Star temporarily changed the description of an older video, where he “surprised” ex-boyfriend Nathan with a luxury car.

Although he quickly changed the video’s title and description after fans caught on the change, he later reverted his edits, explaining why he’d made the unexpected revisions in a house tour on March 28.

During a walkthrough of his expansive garage, Star revealed that there is more going on behind the scenes of his breakup with Schwandt than he’s willing to tell fans, claiming that he’s been emotionally damaged due to the fallout.

Jeffree Star and ex-boyfriend Nathan Schwandt parted ways in a mutual decision, with Star explaining that they still had love for each other in spite of their breakup.

“I think I acted out because I am kind of going through it,” he admitted. “There’s a lot of stuff — really dark, ugly stuff — happening behind the scenes since the breakup. I’ve been devastated, honestly.”

The YouTuber went on to explain that he hasn’t opened up about this drama due to fear that fans might misconstrue his explanation, and even voiced concerns of potential legal trouble, should he speak up on the subject.

“I don’t want to say that, because I’m afraid of being degraded online,” he continued. “I’m afraid of people misconstruing what I’m saying and going with it somewhere else. I’ve been going through it. I really have. …even legally, for my protection, I don’t want to say anything.”

He ended his talk by asking that fans respect his privacy in regards to the breakup — but despite going through such a hard time, Star continues to thrive, supporting both his employees and fans during current global turmoil.


Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
