Kim Kardashian is reportedly getting divorced from Kanye West and word on the street is the looming separation has something to do with Jeffree Star.
On Thursday (January 7), the makeup mogul, 45, took to his YouTube channel to upload a 24-minute video of him addressing the fuss, which went viral due to TikToker Ava Louise. Prior to the explanation, Star had seemingly played off the hype on Instagram by sharing a selfie with the caption, “I’m ready for Sunday Service,” but he finally got down to business in his latest video. “I guess some girl made up a whole lie on TikTok and it went viral, where she insinuates Kanye and Kim are getting a divorce because a big male beauty influencer is sleeping with him,” he confessed to viewers, before adding, “I’m single. I’m not sleeping with anyone. This is so weird… this is so stupid.”
Louise’ claims took social media by storm without any basis, but some did point out that Star recently moved to Wyoming, the same state that West has been living in while he and Kardashian are separated from each other.
Star went on to claim that he and the rapper have never even met. “Let me just say this one time… I like very tall men,” he continued. “Me and Kanye have never hung out, and this whole thing is really funny. I get why people are really laughing about this. In an old song of mine from 2009 called ‘Bitch Please,’ I say a line about Kanye. But it was very like Eminem. I mentioned like 50 celebrities.”
As the Kardashian and West divorce rumors grow louder, it appears that divorce papers haven’t come just yet because the former feels sorry for their four children. “She is sad about it, of course,” a source recently told PEOPLE. “She just feels she has done everything in her power to make her marriage work. Even though she has been thinking about divorce for months, she hasn’t filed because she feels terrible for the kids.”
