Jeffree Star is finally telling his side of the story in regards to the Kat Von D drama. In a new YouTube video on July 20, Jeffree calls his fomer BFF ‘vicious’ for broadcasting their problems to the world. Click to WATCH!
Jeffree, 30, posted the video on July 20 and titled it “Dear Kat Von D, It’s Easier To Tell The Truth.” In the nearly 30 minute long video, Jeffree responds to Kat’s video and claims that many things she said were lies. He also voiced his concern about the unfair backlash he’s been receiving since Kat, 34, released her video, where she said she was done rationalizing his “inappropriate behavior (including, promoting drug use, racism, and bullying).”
“Things have gotten past the point of Internet drama,” he says. “We’re now at the point where, two days later, I get a call from three of my family members. People from the Internet have found their numbers. They’re calling my family, screaming death threats into the phone.”
Jeffree directly calls out Kat in the video and says it was so “vicious and disheartening” to post her opinions on such a public platform. “I never knew you would take things this far,” he says to her.
The makeup artist makes a point to address everything Kat did in her video about him. He shows text messages with Kat and reveals that he never once told her to “f**k off.”
Jeffree also explains that he was unable to pay for artist B.J. Betts’ initial logo sketches for his cosmetics line at first, but he later paid the artist for helping inspire the design.
“Does it look similar?” Jeffree says. “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. 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…I just feel sorry that he’s now being dragged into this.”
This feud is just getting nastier and nastier. Watch Jeffree’s full response above! Will Kat respond? Time will tell!
