Were Kim Kardashian and Jeffree Star friends? Rumors of his affair with Kanye West left reality star 'humiliated'
The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star, 40, and makeup artist, 35, were known to be supportive of each other, especially since they both own and look after their beauty brands
There was once a time, long before the rumor mills went into overdrive spreading speculations of an impending divorce between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, and his alleged relationship with Jeffree Star, that the two beauty moguls used to be friends. But if reports are to be believed, Kim was left "humiliated" after rumors of her former friend's affair with husband West started making news.
The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star, 40, and makeup artist, 35, were known to be supportive of each other, especially since they both own and look after their beauty brands. In 2017, Jeffree attended a launch event for Kim's new beauty range, which came as a shock to many because Star was apparently involved in a feud with her sister Kylie Jenner at the time. When he dived headfirst into controversies and was accused of being a racist, Kim had even helped him with damage control before backtracking.
But now, their friendship may have just turned sour. A source possibly close to Kim has revealed that she is left feeling embarrassed. "Kim is humiliated by everything with Jeffree and the divorce as a whole," a source has revealed to The Sun. "She has a lot of friends and a lot of respect in the makeup world so she was embarrassed with all of those Jeffree rumors."
This comes after Jeffree took his YouTube channel on January 7 to clarify any and all rumors about being romantically-linked with Kanye West. "I'm single ... I'm not sleeping with anyone," Jeffree said in the video he titled 'Addressing The Kanye Situation'. "This is so weird … this is so stupid. Let me just say this one time … I like very tall men," he said.
"Me and Kanye have never hung out, and this whole thing is really funny. I get why people are really laughing about this. In an old song of mine from 2009 called B**** Please, I say a line about Kanye. But it was very like Eminem. I mentioned like 50 celebrities," he added suggesting where people may be getting their ideas from.
The make-up artist captioned the clip, "Hi 2021, let's relax. Addressing this Kanye West and Jeffree Star situation and the truth about why I moved to the state of Wyoming." The controversy involving Jeffree and the Grammy-winner blew out of proportion after a TikTok personality Ava Louise, insinuated a romance between West and Star. "Kanye’s been hooking up with a very famous beauty guru, male beauty guru, a lot of people in the scene have known for a while," Louise said. 'A lot of people in the scene have known for a while." Louise, however, claimed that she didn't have 'concrete evidence' to confirm the affair, attributing the information to an entertainment attorney she chatted with.
Earlier this week, a source close to the Kardashian family said to E! News that "there is absolutely no truth to Jeffree and Kanye rumors". Such wild rumors keep gaining steam as it was reported that the ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star has hired a top Hollywood divorce lawyer after her rapper husband allegedly spent Christmas without her in Wyoming, while she was seen without her expensive wedding ring.
