In case you missed it amid, uh, everything else that’s going on, the world of showbiz has been on fire this week with reports that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are on the brink of an imminent divorce.
On Tuesday, Page Six reported that Kim has “had enough” and hired a divorce attorney, while Kanye is “completely over the entire [Kardashian] family.”
Enter none other than… Jeffree Star, I guess?
Following reports of Kim and Kanye’s apparent divorce, TikToker @realavalouiise posted a video saying she could “finally spill the tea” she claimed to have been “holding onto for months.”
In the video, Ava Louise claimed the divorce news “comes as no surprise” because “Kanye’s been hooking up with a very famous male beauty guru.”
i can’t say WHO cuz he’ll sue me hint hint but it’s part of the reason Kanye’s so religious now it’s his self hatred …. my source is legit I promiss
Of course, Twitter ran wild with the rumours, and there were jokes all over the timeline.
And even Jeffree himself got involved, captioning a selfie with “I’m ready for Sunday Service” in a nod to Kanye’s highly exclusive church services.
But in a new video posted to his YouTube channel on Thursday, Jeffree vehemently shut down the rumour, calling it “the dumbest shit [he’s] ever read in [his] entire life.”
“I’m like, how do we even get to this moment?” he said in the video. “How would that even be made up? Because we both live in the same state? Whatever.”
He went on to call the whole thing a lie, with a friend exclaiming in the background that Ava Louise just made up the rumour to get views.
“Let me just say this one time for any news outlet: I like very tall men, me and Kanye have never hung out, and this whole thing is really funny,” Jeffree concluded.
So I guess there you have your final update on the first week of 2021. Happy new year!
