Jeffree Star has announced he is selling his house and leaving California as he makes a big life decision to improve his mental health, having started therapy last year.
The YouTube star posted a 25-minute long video on Tuesday to give his fans an update and revealed he is ‘dealing with his demons’ and shipping out from Los Angeles.
The decision comes after he and friend Daniel Lucas were involved in a horrific car crash in April in which he broke his back.
Speaking directly to camera the make-up artist shared that the pandemic and lockdown had given him time to ‘really evaluate my entire life’.
He said: ‘I finally had a lot of time to address things that I was not ready to address with myself [and] was too scared to deal with my personal issues, and so many mental things that I was running from, so I’m selling this house.
‘I need to say goodbye to California for a second.
‘You guys know I live in Wyoming part-time, now full-time, and I really needed to do it for me. This decision was astronomically hard. There’s so many factors in my life, and after months I think I’m ready.’
‘It’s really, really lonely here,’ he said before admitting that he ‘didn’t need to be in a house this big’.
Jeffree confessed that ‘one of my biggest regrets is not asking for help’.
‘I had to stop hanging out with idiots, I had to stop dating, I had to just really focus on me. Everything was a distraction. I had to stop it all…I’m ready to let go of so much. I’m ready to really focus on my inner happiness and my peace.’
Turning to his decision to take up therapy in 2020 the internet star felt he ‘needed help with why I react the way I react’ and that he ‘got caught up in joining this YouTube space and the beauty world’.
‘I also got swept up…I’ll regret that forever, all the crazy things that have happened publicly. So many things will never be said,’ he went on, appearing to address his involvement in the drama between fellow YouTubers James Charles and Tati Westbrook.
Moving on to positive note, he revealed to fans that he is ‘thriving’ since making the decision to move.
‘I’m actually in a really, really great place mentally. I feel like I’m thriving, I’m closer to my family than ever before,’ Jeffree said.
‘I’m really focused on creating again and I’m happy. I really am.’
