Viral beauty expert Jeffree Star has confirmed via an incredibly emotional YouTube post that he and his longtime boyfriend Nathan Schwandt have broken up. The news came after Star went silent on all of his social media platforms for several days and deleted a Tweet that left fans incredibly worried about what was going on in his personal life.
In the heart-wrenching video Star called Schwandt his “soulmate” and claims that Schwandt was the only man he ever loved. He also went on to explain that being in the public eye was difficult for their relationship and the pair had gone through many personal struggles over the years, including the loss of a beloved pet.
Star also set the record straight in regard to the false rumors that his mother or grandmother had died leading to the social media blackout, saying they are both alive, but dealing with health issues. He also noted that he was forced to address several sad issues of other family members trying to sell the breakup story to various media outlets.

It is not 100% clear if this breakup will be permanent, so fans will have to wait and see how the situation plays out.
