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.”
