YouTuber and makeup mogul Jeffree Star is a known dog lover, owning a grand total of six Pomeranian pooches, who recently became a topic of controversy after one pup fell ill.

Star’s four Pomeranians, Diva, Delicious, Drama and Da Vinci, have received two new siblings, with the YouTuber welcoming a duo of puppies earlier this month.

However, these most recent additions to his furry family aren’t the topic of current drama, as Star revealed that his eleven-year-old Diva has been dealing with tummy trouble in a Tweet on April 17.

YouTuber Jeffree Star is a noted dog lover, dubbing his home the “Pomeranian Palace” due to owning six of the fluffy breed.

“My eleven-year-old dog, Diva, is at the vet right now with swollen abdominal issues, so they are giving him medicine and an ultrasound and X-Rays,” he revealed. “He’s smiling and in really good spirits. I’m probably more nervous than he is.”

Despite his affirmations that Diva was being well taken care of by a veterinarian, one fan appeared to accuse the YouTuber of mistreating his pomeranians by feeding them low-quality food in a backhanded reply to his post.

“I love you Jeffree Star, but your dogs seem to have a lot of issues,” the critic replied. “What are you feeding your babies? Hope it’s not fast (processed) food! Honey! Hope all is well!”

Like any protective pet parent, Star clapped back at the critic’s insinuations, taking special care to note his dog’s age and the fact that Diva and his siblings are given only the best care under the roof of his “Pomeranian Palace.”

“Wow, I’m signing off the internet for today,” Star wrote. “Diva is ELEVEN and has had a perfect life. Just sharing him being sick when all the other dogs are fine is scary and worrisome. And I’m not acknowledging the food, they are treated like royalty.”

Star was quick to clap back at a commenter accusing him of feeding his Pomeranian pups low-quality food.

While Jeffree has since deleted his Tweet responding to the critic, fans have since come out en masse against the comment, similarly noting how well he treats his pups and that the breed tends to have health issues.

Diva’s recent stint at the vet follows the passing of Star’s late Pomeranian, Diamond, in 2019 — so it comes as little surprise that he’d be worried about another one of his furry friends, after taking such a difficult loss just over a year ago.

Drake needs no introduction. As one of the biggest names in rap music across the globe, the star has amassed a net worth of over $150 million. Not only is his net worth insane, but so is his car collection.

Canadian musician Drake – real name Aubrey – is one of the best-known names in rap music. With a ridiculous number of awards to his name, he has become an almost permanent fixture on mainstream music charts. As you may imagine, his success had led to him building up quite the car collection.

Reportedly, the total value of his current car collection is worth nearly eight-figures. With his continued success, it is likely that he will break this barrier within the next few years if all goes well.

Drake is a big fan of British supercar makers McLaren, and has a number of their cars in his fleet. One of his personal favorites is his white McLaren 675LT. Costing upwards of $338,000 the 675LT is one of McLaren’s most ‘hardcore’ cars ever, with 666hp from its twin-turbo V8 engine.

His Lamborghini Aventador is a special edition LP 700-4 model.

Not one to go with ‘basic’ versions of cars, Drake purchased a limited-edition Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. With 700hp on tap, this Lambo will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds, and cost Drake a cool $400,000. Drake has also previously said the car “makes him feel like Christian Bale (in Batman)” when behind the wheel.

Swapping performance for all-out luxury, Drake owns one of the plushest cars money can buy – a Mercedes Pullman. Typically used by royal families and government officials, this high-class Merc is perfect for whisking Drake around in absolute luxury. It doesn’t come cheap, however, retailing at over $600k.

Opting for a one-off car is a great way to ‘flex’ your wealth, and that’s exactly what Drake has done with his $700k+ Mansory Bushukan Phantom. Featuring a custom design, along with a solid gold OVO hood ornament in place of the RR ‘spirit of ecstasy’ the Phantom is perfect for ultra-plush travel.

Drake’s incredible hypercar collection

In terms of hypercars, his collection is as crazy as you’d imagine. His Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is one of only 12 in the world, and cost a whopping $2,000,000. Drake also has a LaFerrari in Yellow, which likely set him back around $1.5-$2 million.

If you thought the Bugatti was wild, the crown of Drake’s collection will blow you away. He has reportedly bought one of the world’s first Devel Sixteen hypercars. With an alleged 5000hp from its 12.3l, V16 engine, it is one of the rarest cars in the world, costing $2,200,000.

Drake’s custom private jet

Of course, we can’t forget his custom Boeing 767 private jet, but that won’t fit in a garage, so we’ve excluded it from the list.

All told, Drake’s car collection is currently sitting around the $8 million mark, if reports are to be believed. Who knows where it will sit in a few years time.
