It’s been less than a year since Jeffree Star and his longtime boyfriend, Nathan Schwandt put an end to their relationship and much less since his blackmail, manipulation and racism scandal. That being said, when it became apparent that he’s moved on with a new man, some social media users proceeded to drag him and start speculations that the new beau was paid to date him!
The outspoken makeup mogul and YouTuber was quick to address this rumor, taking to his Instagram page to clear things out.
It all started when Jeffree Star made his new romance with the mystery man Insta official by posting a new pic featuring the two of them.
In a manner of minutes, Jeffree’s name was trending on Twitter and a lot of the posts were negative and speculative, some saying that Jeffree must have paid the other man to date him, something that was said in the past about Nathan as well.
A lot of the other negative tweets were about his controversies, however, but Jeffree did not mention those, only focusing on the relationship rumors.
He wrote: ‘I know it’s devastating news for some people, but I don’t give money to anyone I’m dating or anyone who is f**king me. Work on your own insecurities sis, I am not the problem. Worry about how you pay your own bills, not who is in my mouth. Thank you, God bless – Upper management.’
On his IG Stories, Jeffree went ahead and posted a number of other pics of him and the mystery man at his mansion.
However, the influencer is yet to reveal the name of his new conquest.
Still, The Shade Room has managed to identify him as a basketball player who used to play for Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.
After graduation, he played for overseas teams in Austria and Germany.
According to his IG account, he currently resides in Atlanta.
