Jeffree Star posted a picture of a mystery person that sent the rumor mill into overdrive

Star appeared to announce a new fling over the weekend of Aug. 21, when he posted a photo with a mystery man on Instagram. The picture shows him donning a Louis Vuitton monogrammed outfit with a hot pink ombré wig and sitting on the man’s lap.

The man’s face cannot be seen, but he is shown wrapping his arms around the YouTuber, with his tattoos and muscles on full display.

Star kept the caption short and sweet, writing, “Thankful for all the blessings God has brought into my life this year 💯🙏🏼” His post garnered over one million likes, including from fans and celebrities alike. But the comments were turned off, preventing social media users from weighing in and potentially revealing the person’s identity.

Who is Jeffree Star’s boyfriend? Fans have guesses

Although fans weren’t able to comment on Star’s post, many took to Twitter to weigh in on his apparent new fling and speculate on who the person could be. Some name-dropped people like Todrick Hall and actor Jozea Rosé, but others debunked those rumors due to the tattoos that the mystery man has.

After more sleuthing around, fans suggested the person was Andre Marhold, pointing to similarities in their tattoos. Marhold is a basketball player from Charlotte, North Carolina who now appears to reside in Atlanta, per Monsters and Critics. But it is unclear if he and Star are truly connected.

Amid calls to reveal the person’s identity, Star indicated that he had no interest in doing so, posting a tweet that said, “Worry about how to pay your own bills, not who’s in my mouth 💯 Thank you, God bless – Upper management.”

Who else has Jeffree Star dated?

Previously, Star was in a relationship with Internet personality Nathan Schwandt. They dated for almost five years before Star announced in January that they had broken up. He said in a video posted to YouTube that their relationship began to deteriorate following the deaths of their dogs but noted they were still friends.

“Me and Nathan will be friends forever, I will always have love for him. Are we in love with each other? No, but we love each other and he will always be in my life,” Star said.
