UPDATE: A spokesperson for Jeffree tells The Blast, “While Insider may believe that generating click-bait is more important than honest reporting, facts still matter. This so-called exposé is nothing but a defamatory collection of long-discredited allegations, misleading hearsay from more than a decade ago, and outright lies. Tellingly, all of the key individuals involved have refused to substantiate Insider’s bogus claims, while many, including Jeffree’s representatives, presented the reporter with a mountain of evidence proving that these allegations are false. She, regrettably and unethically, chose to ignore that evidence because it did not fit with her predetermined narrative.”
They continued, “Insider’s article is textbook defamation, rife with malice and demonstrating a reckless disregard for the truth, and, as a result, Jeffree is considering all of his legal options.”
Jeffree Star is denying allegations of sexual assault and threatening to sue the outlet who published the story.
Insider published a lengthy story based on accounts from several former associates of Jeffree. They detail alleged racist outbursts along with physical and sexual abuse.
Sources accuse Jeffree of having “sexually preyed on men around him through nonconsensual oral sex and groping.” One accuser claims Jeffree pulled out a stun gun on one guy who rejected him.
Jeffree’s attorney denies the allegations in the article. The lawyer called the accusations “false and defamatory.”
The story comes hours after the news broke Jeffree and his boyfriend Andre Marhold were over.
As The Blast previously reported, earlier this week, Jeffree announced his split from the professional basketball player. The internet personality accused Andre of stealing expensive bags from his home after he was told to pack up and leave.
Jeffree said, “sometimes when you meet people, surprise, they aren’t who they say they are. Y’all real quickly, Jeffree Lynn got a little played. So, I was hanging out with someone, just two grown adults having sex and chilling, nothing serious.”
He added, “But I was presented a whole different person than who this man really was. That is fine. Y’all know out there, y’all have dated or hung out with some shady ass people. And yes, bitch, it happened to me.”
Jeffree explained, “So about a week ago. Jeffree Lynn discovered a lot of things. This person secretly had no job, no money, not even a bank account, and this person is like 30 years plus. All these things I was told were false. And I was lied to. And I was like “okay, bye sweetie.”
He continued, “It’s not about what it is. It’s about the principle. It’s just sad. Instead of answering the phone this person was posting like they was still at my house. This shit was so weird. I just wanted my stuff back. I’m sure I’m never going to get it. I know I can go buy it tomorrow. I’m not about being around weird energy.”
He ended, “And if you’re not doing anything with your life, I can’t be around that. I’m a boss ass bitch.”
Jeffree’s relationship with Andre was controversial from the start. After they went public, Andre’s baby mama came out accusing him of leaving his family for fame.
She claimed Andre told her he was going on a work trip to Los Angeles. On social media, she told her followers she found out about Andre’s romance with Jeffree the same time as them.
Jeffree fired back at the drama in a video, “And don’t worry who I’m sucking and fucking, take it easy y’all. Take it easy. Jeffree Lynn is enjoying herself. And some of y’all hate to see joy, well bitch, well you are worrying about it I’m still getting sucked and fuc-ed. So take a deep breath girl, inhale it.”
