Makeup mogul Jeffree Star is continuing to play into the rumor that he and rapper Kanye West are having romantic rendezvous in Wyoming. Star tweeted on Thursday that “e-detectives” are studying a picture Star posted earlier this week — feeding into the theory that West is one of the people you can spot in the reflection of Star’s sunglasses.
On Wednesday, Star also tweeted a new picture of himself and captioned it that he’s “ready for Sunday Service,” adding to speculation that Kanye cheated on wife Kim Kardashian West with Star. The bizarre conspiracy theory started Tuesday night on TikTok after Page Six reported that Kanye and Kim are headed toward a divorce.

A TikTok posted by influencer and self-admitted troll Ava Louise started the rumor, with Louise saying the divorce came as “no surprise” because she’s been hearing about Kanye and Star “for months.” “A lot of people in the scene have known for a while,” Louise, who is known for scripted “Dr. Phil” appearances and parodying the “coronavirus challenge,” said in the video.
i can’t say WHO cuz he’ll sue me hint hint but it’s part of the reason Kanye’s so religious now it’s his self hatred …. my source is legit I promiss
Louise told Insider there’s no “concrete evidence” that Kanye and Star are actually involved, and has gone on to claim that Kanye also had an entanglement with Cole Carrigan, a smaller beauty influencer who is friends with her. Carrigan didn’t immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
In addition to his sarcastic tweets about Kanye, Star also responded to a request for comment sent by YouTube drama personality Keemstar. Star texted back “Hahaha” and “I’m having the best time in Wyoming, come visit sometime!” When drama YouTuber Dustin Dailey reached out to Star for comment, he says Star called him on FaceTime and said the rumor wasn’t true.
Despite the lack of any evidence, the bizarre conspiracy about Star and Kanye trended on Twitter and TikTok on Wednesday, with theories that the beauty YouTuber and rapper both have properties in Hidden Hills, California and in Wyoming due to their relationship. Star and a representative for Kanye didn’t respond to Insider’s request for comment.
