Filed under one of the first biggest celeb breakups of 2020: Beauty mogul and YouTube celebrity Jeffree Star announced that he has broken up with long-time boyfriend Nathan Schwandt. He shared the news on Twitter where he apologized to his fans for his silence.
"We broke up… Sorry for the silence, I’ve been trying to heal and it’s been really hard."
He also posted a YouTube video where he went into detail about what happened. He explained that he and Nathan had been going through difficulties in their personal lives. Nathan’s brother recently had a seizure, and he and Star also lost one of their dogs. In a separate tweet, the Jeffree said: "We were too busy being there for each other, that we forgot to be there for ourselves. It’s important to take care of your own mental well-being and check on yourself."
Jeffree only had good things to say about his former flame though. He also opened up about how difficult it has been for them as they are trying to "go through it."
"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. 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," Jeffree explained in his video.
He also went on to share how much his life has changed since the breakup, which happened a few weeks ago. "And the love of my life is no longer—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."
Jeffree clarified that he and Nathan will remain friends. "Me and Nathan will be friends forever, I will always have love for him. Are we in love with each other? No. But we love each other and he will always be in my life."
The two started dating five years ago after meeting on Instagram. Nathan has gained popularity among Jeffree’s fans after appearing on some of his videos. The ex-couple had just recently moved into their new Hidden Hills mansion in early January.
