Makeup artist, business mogul and YouTuber Jeffree Star has managed to make headlines time and again with the rags to riches personality managing to put himself right in the middle of the biggest fights in the makeup community.

Be it his fight with fellow makeup guru and businesswoman Kat Von D or his feud with his ex-clique comprising of makeup artists Manny Gutierrez aka Manny Mua, Laura Lee, Nikita Dragun, and Gabriel Zamora, he has always managed to stir controversy.

His controversy with 'TooFaced' CEO Jeremy Johnson was also the one that many talk about to date and the most recent controversy where he got involved in a fight between makeup guru Tati Westbrook and another member of the makeup community James Charles.

This was the one where he had to take back his explosive words against Charles after the latter came bearing receipts of being in the right. Even though Jeffree had apologized for his words back then, it looks like he's standing by his initial comments where he called Charles a "predator".

Earlier this week, he was on an episode of 'Mom's Basement' podcast and the beauty YouTuber opened up about his ongoing controversy with Charles, which started last year after Westbrook called Charles out on her own channel in a 40-minute long video.

She slammed him for not having her and her brand Halo Beauty's back and advertising sleep supplements from her direct rival brand SugarBearHair. It was also revealed that Charles used to coerce guys into performing sexual acts with him amid other allegations.

On the podcast, he was asked if Charles was a predator and a danger to society. The question was directly in reference to a now-deleted tweet from Jeffree calling Charles "danger to society" and "predator" after Tati dropped her video.

Jeffree started out saying, "Listen… it’s a very complicated question."

"I'm 100% comfortable [with you asking], it's going to upset a lot of people but the truth is that someone… and right now… I legally can't say who, but someone told us a few things and we trusted that person's opinion and then another person said some things that was friends with that man and it really convinced us that he was a predator," he explained.

“At the end of the day, I’m not going to out a victim of James Charles. If it's real because I don't know if it's real," he added. He also absolutely refused to take any responsibility for trying to "ruin" Charles' career and insisted that he was wrongfully blamed for it.

Shifting the blame on Tati, he mentioned: "No, Tati did and uploaded a 40-minute video about him and she should have never uploaded that but she did," he went on.

"And for some reason, James thinks that me and Shane [Dawson] tried to ruin his life and orchestrated the whole thing like we f******* care. You think we care to drag or ruin someone… for what? We're our own superstars, we're our own lane, we're doing our own thing together and we've made so much magic, why would we ever want to bring someone down? We don't give a f***."

Sharing details about his current relationship with Tati, he stated: "We are currently not friends with Tati. Are we enemies? No. But we are not friends…I just think that Tati… she took a really big hit. I don’t know if she's in the red but it's a different vibe."
