YouTuber Jeffree Star has officially gotten over his heartbreak. The 34-year-old makeup mogul opened up to his 15.8 million Instagram followers via Instagram Stories and revealed that he’s living his best life post-breakup.
Previously, Jeffree told fans that he was taking time off social media to heal after announcing on January 11, 2020 that he and boyfriend Nathan Schwandt had split after five years together. It seemed like the social media star had moved on when he posted multiple photos and videos in Miami, Florida for Super Bowl weekend.
“It’s nice to have genuine friendships with people who are also on YouTube and doing really big things. And that genuinely want to hang out and want to have a f**king amazing time,” he said in a since-expired Instagram Stories clip.
Jeffree also addressed some fans who questioned why he had been “going out” so frequently. The YouTuber explained that his ex-boyfriend never wanted to go out, so it was fun for him to do something different.
“You guys, real tea…I was with someone that didn’t want to go out, didn’t want to go to strip clubs, didn’t ever want to go to the club,” he explained. “B***h is over 30 now, honey, so it’s nice to enjoy things that you haven’t done in a while. You know I was living the best life with all my friends.”
Jeffree’s Miami trip came just a few days after his ex, Nathan, made his return to Instagram. As fans know, in December 2019, Jeffree revealed in an interview on fellow YouTuber Trisha Paytas‘ The Dish with Trish podcast that Nathan had taken a social media break to “detach.”
As of January 2020, he is back and has a whole new Instagram account. Nathan returned to the photo sharing app under the handle @jusskate. Fans noticed his return pretty recently, but from the look of it, he started to post again on January 5. As of Thursday, February 6, Nathan only has 13 posts — a combination of selfies and skateboarding videos — and he and Jeffree do not follow each other.
