Jeffree Star Has His Say After Kat Von D Cuts All Ties With Him On Twitter
Let round two of the celeb spat commence as YouTuber Jeffree Star posts a video denying allegations Kat Von D made about his bullying and 'stolen artwork' Read in full at MTV.co.uk
It's been quite the week for celeb dramas, but forget Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian for a sec as in the beauty world, all eyes are currently on makeup gurus Kat Von D and Jeffree Star.
After Kat took to YouTube and Twitter to denounce Jeffree in a very public friendship breakup, he promised there was more to come when his side of the story came out. And now, after leaving us on tenterhooks for 24 hours, he's taken right back to YouTube to share his side of things.
In Kat's video, she talks about many things in regard to her former friend, but her major issues seem to be with the way Jeffree treats other beauty brands and people he works with. In particular she refers to an artist friend called BJ, who she says drew the logo for Jeffree's beauty line, but who was never paid and instead Jeffree supposedly cut off all contact with him by blocking his number.
Clearly Jeffree ain't too impressed with this summary from Kat and in the video he goes through each of her claims and seems to dispel them. As well as saying he never stole any artwork, he reveals personal text messages between the two.
Talking about the logo issue, he says: "Does it look similar [to what BJ drew]? A hundred percent, it does. But did I steal the logo? A hundred percent, I did not. So I never stole a logo, and B.J. never said I stole the logo."
In fact, Jeffree says he couldn't afford to pay BJ at the time it was drawn, but that he later sorted things out.
"Actually, from talking to him this week, I found out that he had no idea Kat was going to go public and show his design and mention his name," he adds. "I just feel sorry that he’s now being dragged into this."
Ouch. BJ has since taken to Twitter himself and although he alludes to there being some kind of issue originally, he does also say it has now been sorted out.
Such DRAMA. Still from what Kat then posted, it sounds like Jeffree and BJ have only just sorted things in regards to payment.
