Jeffree Star confirmed the rumors are true! Star and his 5-years boyfriend, Nathan Schwandt, which he calls his “soul mate,” is no longer together. The beauty guru shared his sentiments regarding the issue in his Youtube channel with a title, “We Broke Up.”
“I don’t even know where to begin. Ummm… there’s no easy way to say this, but we did break up,” says Star in the first minute of the video.
“I’ve used a lot of this time of silence just to try to heal, you know. We’re both in a state of shock. I’m devastated,” he continued. “I’m so sad, and the love of my life is no longer- wait, I don’t wake up to him anymore. He’s no longer here every morning, and my routines have changed, and I’m just in a state of shock right now. We both are.”
Star said the last thing he wanted to do is speak on camera about the breakup.
“But me and him have filmed so many videos together,” he said. “We’ve traveled the world together. I just want to put this on record that Nathan is the only man that I’ve ever been in love with, and I know he’s not here today, but he wanted to say hi and sent his love to everyone. It’s been difficult because Nathan never wanted to be in the spotlight.”
The beauty guru also shared how they loved each other. Star highlighted that Nathan will forever be the love of his life. And, how he’ll be grateful for him until the day he dies.
“I’m grateful for him, and I’ll be grateful until the day I die,” he said. “Because this was the only man that was ever confident enough to love me publicly, to love me for me, fully, all my flaws, no makeup waking up in bed, to full-on, like, you know what I mean, like, he never cared about any of it, and he just loved me for me. And no man has ever had those feelings, I don’t think, for me. And I’ve never loved someone like I’ve loved him.”
Star also shared with his fans how rough 2019 is for him and Nathan; losing two dogs, Nathan losing his grandfather, the robbery, family issues, and so much more. In one of his statements, Star shared how both of them failed to process and talk about their emotions.
But, Star says he’s ready for 2020. And, that it’s all going to be about “family and self-love.” He also shared some optimism for new content and products for his cosmetic line, Jeffree Star Cosmetics.
“It’s 2020,” Star said. “We’re gonna start things off fresh. I’m starting this year off alone, and I can’t even believe I’m saying that. I’m so devastated, but I’m strong, and you guys know that me and Nate had been through so much together. And there’s no crazy gossip, there’s no tea, this is actually really important, and I don’t think that enough celebrities, influencers, people with a platform, talk about, and that’s mental health.”
With regard to his current relationship with Nathan, Star says, “friends forever.”
