Makeup artist Jeffree Star says he doesn't need to 'clap back' as he claps back at ex-BFF Kat Von D.
Jeffree Star, who's made a name for himself as an indie makeup artist and as the official Kylie Jenner-caller-outer for what he sees as her inferior business practices (and, to be fair, the Better Business Bureau also sees them as inferior business practices), is no longer a friend of tattoo artist and fellow makeup guru, Kat Von D. Friendship OVER.
Jeffree-we texted on Saturday. Should I post a screenshot of you telling me to fuck myself after asking you to pay for the artwork u stole?— Kat Von D (@thekatvond) July 19, 2016
Kat posted a statement on both Facebook and Instagram in the early morning hours of Tuesday, effectively terminating the friendship.
Her post reads:
After years of making excuses for, and rationalizing Jeffree's inappropriate behavior (including, promoting drug use, racism, and bullying) I can no longer hold my tongue after recent events. I know that over the years, many of you were introduced to Jeffree through me, and regardless if you chose to continue to follow him or not, I just would like to disassociate myself from him and his brand from this point on. I plan on posting a video explanation as to why I felt compelled to make such a statement. But for the time being, I simply want to apologize to anybody and everybody who has ever had to deal with any of his negativity. And yes, with a heavy heart, I will be pulling the shade "Jeffree" from my collection. Sending extra love to everyone out there.
