A rumor that YouTuber Jeffree and Kanye had hooked up spread across the internet like wildfire despite TikToker Ava Louise admitting she made it all up.
It was enough for Kim to ask Jeffree to end the speculation, after helping to stoke the fire with his own inflammatory posts after waking up to find himself in fashion on social media.
While Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kim was apparently furious with the situation, there was a time when she was on really good terms with Jeffree and even spoke up for him when he faced a racing storm.
In 2017, Jeffree, 35, was pictured with Kim, 40, at the launch of her brand KKW Beauty.
Jeffree was feuding with Kylie Jenner at the time because he had criticized her cosmetic brands, but that didn’t stop Kim from accepting her presence.
He shared a selfie of himself with Kim on the big day, captioning it on Instagram: “Serving Reality Contour Queen.
“Congratulations @kimkardashian on launching KKWBeauty. ”
After that, the two continued to support each other and when Jeffree was accused of being a racist Kim came out and stood up for him.
She said in a video posted to Instagram at the time: “I see my fans totally hate someone like Jeffree Star for being honest about my wrestling samples, but because of his remarks I’m learning of the best, like Mario, how to swatch properly.
“And I see you’re so mean, bringing up things in his past where he was negative, but he also apologized for those things.”
“I understand it’s serious business if you say racial things, but I believe people change, and people who apologize, I will give them the benefit of the doubt and accept that people change and move on. thing.
That quickly changed and the next day Kim reversed her feelings about it and apologized to her own fans for speaking out.
She said, “Hey guys, so I really wanted to apologize to you and my fans for defending a situation yesterday that I really didn’t know enough about.
“I just feel a little naive and really want to apologize for feeling like I have a right to say ‘get over it’ in a situation that involves racism.
“I just don’t really feel like I have a right to talk about this, and I’m really, really, really sorry. ”
Kim continued, “So I’m so sorry, and I just want to go ahead and be positive. And my last post is that I believe that people are born to love and born with love and are taught to hate, so I’ve always hoped that people can change and learn to be better and do better, and learn to regain that love, so never give up hope. ”
This marked the end of their friendship and as they kept each other out of each other’s lives for a while until it all blew up last week.
A source told The Sun, “Kim is humiliated by everything with Jeffree and the divorce as a whole.
“She has a lot of friends and a lot of respect in the makeup world, so she was embarrassed by all these rumors about Jeffree.”
