A Jeffree Star rumor swirls around the Internet

According to Insider, when Star announced the breakup, a Twitter account named Here For The Tea said its sources claimed Schwandt was currently “in malibu with a woman…” Many fans were surprised by the idea that Schwandt had moved on so quickly. The notion was especially surprising since Star said the two were still reeling from the breakup. Others wanted to learn the identity of the woman in Schwandt’s life.

Star remained relatively quiet on social media following the breakup. However, he broke his silence to respond to Here For The Tea. He said “Wow. Nate is 10 feet away from me in the kitchen, how can ANYONE make up lies while him and I are both heartbroken and grieving? Truly disgusted by that… but not surprised.”

Here For The Tea could have dropped the issue there. However, the account is standing by its sources and its story. The account posted on Instagram “you don’t have to believe anything I said, the truth always comes out…” Here For The Tea also claimed new information regarding Schwandt will soon become apparent.

Seventeen Magazine reported Star is also fighting rumors about Schwandt’s love life in other ways. Star posted a photo of his kitchen that showed Schwandt from behind. Star explained his actions on social media.

Star wrote “A lot of you are like, ‘Are you and Nate like hanging out right now?’ I was visiting my grandma…instead of having my security guards or team watch my dogs, why not have Nathan, who raised them with me for years, watch them instead?”

Star added “Also, [Schwandt] and I both felt like it was necessary to show that he is actually at my house today because there are a few media outlets reporting that Nathan is in another city with another girl. I’m like, you guys, do you think me and him want to date anyone else right now?”

What are the former couple doing now?

The beauty guru elaborated “Do you think [dating is] on our minds? I’m on day 10 of crying my eyes out. So, that’s not what we’re thinking about right now.”

Later in the day, Star tweeted “I’ve been in Orange County all day visiting my Grandma Mary who will be turning 103 years old this July! Nate has been at my house w the dogs all day. Media outlets reporting lies about him: Stop, it’s not going to work.”

Star has certainly made a splash within the YouTube community. He’s now a celebrity big enough to rival celebrities who became famous through more traditional means, like film, television, and music. It certainly speaks to his fame that the minute aspects of his personal life become major news.
