A viral TikTok video has sparked a baseless rumour about Kanye West and Jeffree Star – and fans are more than reluctant to believe any of it.
Page Six suggested, in an article from January 5th, that Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West intend to file for divorce, with Kim reportedly hiring a top Hollywood divorce lawyer. It’s thought that Kanye spent Christmas in Wyoming, while Kim has been spotted without her ring.
“Now this is happening because Kim has grown up a lot. She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile, Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s*** and she just had enough of it,” a source told Page Six.
But the divorce isn’t the only drama surrounding Kanye West. A popular TikToker has just made public a series of baseless allegations linking West to controversial make-up guru Jeffree Star.
Literally, none of it makes much sense… although fans on Twitter are loving the ridiculous gossip.
The Kanye West and Jeffree Star TikTok
The video in question comes from popular TikToker Ava Louise, who once appeared on, and then published a video exposing, Dr. Phil. During the video, she claims she has knowledge that Kanye West has allegedly been sleeping with a male beauty influencer:
“Kanye’s been hooking up with a very famous beauty guru, male beauty guru, a lot of people in the scene have known for a while.”
Captioning her video, “I can’t say who cause he’ll sue me hint-hint but it’s part of the reason Kanye is so religious now, it’s his self-hatred…my source is legit,” Ava didn’t specify the beauty guru, but liked a series of comments guessing Jeffree Star, as he is known to have a house in Wyoming.
The TikToker then duetted the video, adding the disclaimer: “This is alleged and I was told by a source – a very good one… but it made so much sense to me. Kanye’s *possible* internalised homophobia is so so sad.”
So, who’s the ‘source’ you ask? Ava Louise alleges in comments that the story comes from an LA lawyer, commenting: “My friend is a big lawyer in LA and met with Kim months ago and was told all of this given evidence. I want to drop receipts but I can’t.”
Reactions to the rumour spread by Ava Louise
The story sounds pretty damn unbelievable but, nonetheless, Twitter quickly took the idea and ran with it, turning it into a series of jokes and memes.
