The chaos surrounding Jeffree Star and Kanye West is finally coming to a close. After fanning the flames of speculation with sarcastic tweets, Jeffree Star finally denied that he and West are romantically involved.
“I guess some girl made up a whole lie on TikTok and it went viral,” Star said in a new YouTube video, referencing the influencer who started the rumor. “I’m single, I’m not sleeping with anyone.”
Star went on to say that the theory that Kanye and wife Kim Kardashian West are getting divorced due to Kanye cheating with him is the “dumbest s—” he’s ever read in his entire life. “I like very tall men,” Star added. “Me and Kanye have never hung out and this whole thing is really funny.”
The TikTok that caused Star’s name to trend throughout the day on Wednesday was created by Ava Louise, a frequent internet troll who also started the parody “coronavirus challenge” and appears regularly on “Dr. Phil.”
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
After Louise’s TikTok spawned the rumor, sleuths also dug through Star’s past comments about Kanye and found lyrics in his 2009 song “Bitch, Please!” about having sex with Kanye. Star addressed the lyrics in his new video, calling them “very Eminem” and saying that he mentions other celebrities and says “crazy s—” about them in the song.
Separately, sources close Kim and Kanye told Insider that the rumors coming from TikTok were false.
Before denying the rumors on YouTube, Star played into the hype around the conspiracy with tweets about being “ready for Sunday Service,” a reference to Kanye’s “Sunday Service” events, and insinuating that Kanye appears in the reflection of Star’s sunglasses in a photo taken earlier this week. Both Star and Kanye now own property in Wyoming.
Representatives for Star didn’t respond to Insider’s request for comment.
