Kat Von D is dunzo with makeup artists Jeffree Star! They may have once been friends, but Kat has decided to distance herself from Star after he’s been accused of bullying and insensitive comments. Kat cut ties with Jeffree vis Facebook (she plans to explain more later—check it out below).
“After years of making excuses for, and rationalizing Jeffree’s inappropriate behavior (including, promoting drug use, racism, and bullying) I can no longer hold my tongue after recent events. I know that over the years, many of you were introduced to Jeffree through me, and regardless if you chose to continue to follow him or not, I just would like to disassociate myself from him and his brand from this point on. I plan on posting a video explanation as to why I felt compelled to make such a statement. But for the time being, I simply want to apologize to anybody and everybody who has ever had to deal with any of his negativity. And yes, with a heavy heart, I will be pulling the shade “Jeffree” from my collection. Sending extra love to everyone out there. ❤️”
Well Jeffree caught wind of the diss and had his own rebuttal tweeting, “Someone I haven’t seen in over a year, wants to make a post about me. I’m yawning right now…..Everyone wants to read drama and be a part of something negative. Kat and I texted a few days ago after 6 MONTHS of silence. She never supported me or my brand and got distant when I launched mine. She accused me of something that wasn’t true, so I told her to fuck off and then blocked her number. Not that juicy of a story, sorry. This whole situation is sad and gross. I don’t need to clap back or make a video about someone’s post. It’s getting trite. Instead of feeding into negativity and internet fights, I’m going back to the real world and off to enjoy the rest of my day <3.”
Kat says Jeffree didn’t pay an artist who made his logo.
