Makeup Guru, Jeffree Star, revealed to fans on Saturday that he and his longtime boyfriend, Nathan Schwandt, have broken up.
Rumors of the breakup circulated the internet early last week when Star suddenly canceled his international makeup tour with fellow artist ‘MMMitchell‘.
The Youtube celeb also removed ‘Wifey of Nathan’ from all social bios prior to announcing the tour cancellation cited for ‘personal reasons’.
In his latest video, Star expresses the devastation of the breakup following a difficult year.
In 2019 his company’s warehouse at Jeffree Star Cosmetics was robbed of millions of dollars of product days before the release of a new line as well as the sudden deaths of two of his six dogs.
On Jan. 1 of the new year Star uploaded a video to his Youtube channel titled ‘Official Jeffree Star DREAM House Tour!’ where he and Nathan showed off their new $14 million mansion in Hidden Hills, CA.
In his most recent video, the makeup mogul clarifies that there is no ‘crazy’ drama surrounding the breakup but instead their demanding lifestyle and mental health played a role in the split.
“Me and Nathan will be friends forever, I will always have love for him. Are we in love with each other? No, but we love each other and he will always be in my life,” he said.
The former couple met five years ago on Instagram way before Star was ever famous.
Nathan has been a key part of the Youtuber’s videos although Star has occasionally reminded fans over the years that Nathan has never had the desire to be in the spotlight.
“He never wanted to be famous, he never wanted to be in the spotlight, he never wanted attention, but he loved and believed in everything I was doing and was a part of it because I asked him to,” Star explained.
The 17-minute ‘We Broke Up.’ video ended with Star thanking fans for their support and respecting his privacy for the time being.
“I can’t wait to get back to doing what I love and creating and Jeffree Star Cosmetics has so many amazing things to look forward to this year — I’m just so excited. Even though I’m so sad I’m ready to get back to work,” he concluded.
