There was a lot going on on social media last night, but a TikTok rumour about Jeffree Star and Kanye West still managed to go viral and blow minds.
In a truly wild twist – even for the first week of 2021, which is saying something – it has been alleged that Kanye West cheated on Kim Kardashian with Jeffree Star, and the make-up guru poked fun at the unsubstantiated speculation on social media.
The 35-year-old posted a picture in which he wore a pink robe and sported multi-coloured hair, and captioned the shot: ‘I’m ready for Sunday Service.’
This was in reference to Kanye’s Sunday Service series, a weekly Christian gathering with a gospel choir.
Jeffree didn’t stop the trolling there, though, as he then shared a picture of an open road in Wyoming – where Kanye’s ranch is.
The YouTube star, who is living part-time in Wyoming after buying property there, tweeted: ‘I love these beautiful #Wyoming winter nights.’
People replied to both posts with memes of Jeffree ‘fleeing’ Kanye’s house when Kim came home, as well as telling January to ‘calm down’ with the level of news.
So where did this bizarre rumour come from?
It all started on TikTok, following the New York Post’s report that Kim, 40, is divorcing Kanye, 43, after six years of marriage.
Ava Louise, who has 548,000 followers on the platform, claimed in a video that has been watched 6.8 million times that Kanye had been ‘hooking up’ with a famous beauty guru.
She said: ‘This whole divorce comes as no surprise. 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.’
Ava Louise, who went viral last year for a TikTok stunt where she licked a toilet seat, was behind the song Skinny Legend Anthem and has made a number of appearances on Dr Phil, liked a number of comments identifying Jeffree Star as the mystery beauty guru, but said she couldn’t show concrete evidence supporting her claim.
The unverified and unsubstantiated rumour made its way off TikTok and onto Instagram and Twitter, with YouTuber KeemStar tweeting an apparent message thread with Jeffree.
He asked: ‘Jeffree what do I say about these current rumours with you and Kanye;, with Jeffree apparently replying: ‘Hahaha I’m having the best time in Wyoming, come visit sometime!’
KeemStar also shared lyrics from Jeffree’s 2009 song B**** Please, which included the lyric: ’S***ed off Kanye West, now I’m one of the bros’. The song also included the lyric: ‘Gave Zac Efron my poker face and left him with chills.’
There is no evidence that Kanye has ever spent time with Jeffree, and there has been no allegations from the Kardashian team that the rapper was unfaithful.
The claims come amid reports that Kim has hired top divorce lawyer Laura Wasser to begin settlement talks, although no papers have been filed as of yet.
Kim and Kanye got married in 2014 after two years of dating, and have four children together – North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, who is three next week, and one-year-old Psalm.
