A lot has happened this week, but if you can remember as far back as Tuesday, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting a divorce. The relationship supposedly fell apart because the couple’s lives are simply going in different directions.
Kim doesn't want to deal with Kanye's political ambitions and antics, he doesn't want to pose for a million photos with her ridiculously large family. They no longer fit together. Soon after the announcement, a strange thing started happening.
The name of makeup artist Jeffree Star began trending on Twitter, and it seemed to be because everyone was suddenly suggesting that Kanye cheated on Kim with Jeffree.
It is a lot to process. Jeffree Star is not known for being... a good person. It also just seems so totally random, like names were picked out of a hat. But this rumor didn't come out of nowhere.
It was first posted on TikTok by user Ava Louise, best known as the girl who licked an airplane toilet seat for the "coronavirus challenge" last year.
In it she says that Kanye has been hooking up with a "very famous makeup guru—MALE!" and that's what brought on the divorce.
"MY FRIEND IS A BIG LAWYER IN LA AND MET WITH KIM MONTHSSSS AGOOOO AND WAS TOLD ALL OF THIS GIVEN EVIDENCE I WANT TO DROP RECEIPTS BUT CANT," she wrote. "THIS IS ALLEGED - but yk my source is good I believe them."
Since then, she's added more info, duets, and brought in TikToker Cole Carrigan, who strongly implied he had a sexual interaction with Kanye at some point:
So, what, if any of this, comes with proof? Pretty much nothing that can be actually verified. One thing is that Kanye is supposedly in Wyoming as the details of his divorce are ironed out. Coincidentally, Jeffree Star also lives in Wyoming. And is there right now.
Star seems to be reveling in the attention, dropping jokes and hints about where he is with and who with:
Gossip hound @keemhound also tweeted what are supposedly screenshots of a conversation with Star, in which he just replies that he's having the best time in Wyoming to a question about Kanye. It's also pointed out that in a song Star released in 2009 he says he performed oral sex on Kanye:
He gave us all the clues.
