Whether you adore him, hate him, or really just don't know how you feel about Jeffree Star, you have to admit that when it comes to secrets and drama within the beauty industry, he's usually right.
For years he's been slyly referring to drama, secrets, and "dirt" he's been keeping secret about certain figures in the beauty industry — we assume he's referring specifically to a few different influencers — though he's sworn to remain tight-lipped on those matters until they come to light naturally and through other means.
This week is no different. If you like to stay in the know about blogger tea, prepare for a doozy at some point this year.
Lest we forget that Charles and Star were actually friends — that is, until rumors started to fly last week that their friendship is now dunzo.
The pair have starred in videos on each other's channels as recently as four months ago, and for a time in 2018 were seen communicating publicly across social media platforms. But as of late, Star and Charles have both been tweeting about vague "truths" coming to light, which most take to mean that drama occurred and they are no longer in cahoots.
And the fact that all the way back in 2017, Star declared to the world via a quickly deleted Snapchat story that he has "dirt" on influencers who've turned their backs on him.
That happened immediately after news that he and Nikkie Tutorials "broke up," and long before the Beauty Blogger Apocalypse of 2018. And though we sometimes have to question how much Star actually knows and what strings he is capable of pulling off-camera, all of these things when added up do seem to point to an approaching drama-fest.
Whatever ends up happening... we just hope it isn't too brutal or offensive.
The number one thing we fail to forget amid most influencer scandals is that they're considered scandals because someone's been offended — and most of the time the drama surrounds something racially insensitive.
People actually get their feelings (and careers) hurt in these massive unveilings of receipts. We just hope that this time around that doesn't need to happen en masse.
