Fans Are Convinced Jeffree Star Is Dating This NBA Player
Makeup mogul Jeffree Star looks like he’s booed up with a new flame. After creating tons of buzz posting a picture sitting on a man’s lap, fans finally think they cracked the code and have found out his secret identity.
Jeffree captioned the post “Thankful for all the blessings God has brought into my life this year.” Jeffree previously split from longtime boyfriend Nathan Schwandt five months ago.
Did Fans Correctly Identify Jeffree Star’s New Secret Boyfriend?
It didn’t take long for people the speculate who this mystery man could be. A few tweets have pointed to basketball player Andre Marhold as the man making Jeffree’s heart flutter. “Tatts look like they might be this guy, Andre Marhold, plus bump on ring finger in Jeffree’s pic could indicate the recent injury requiring the splint in this pic above. He gets new tatts rather often, so older pics are missing the forearm serpent, but this shows it well” said one Twitter user. In the picture, the man hugging Jeffree has a basketball tattoo on his right arm which Andre also has.
Andre’s Instagram account is currently private. In 2013, he began playing basketball overseas and spent a lot of time in Europe. He now resides in Atlanta, Georgia while Jeffree lives in Hidden Hills, California. It appears that Andre has a child as he has been pictured with a toddler several times. Neither Jeffree nor Andre follow each other on Instagram but that might just be to throw people off. The pair have not confirmed their relationship to fans just yet.
Jeffree Dropped Other Clues He Was Dating An Athlete
Back in March, Jeffree clapped back at a person suggesting that he is tall enough to play in the NBA and is “playing with the wrong balls.” Jeffree said he currently has three NBA players in his DM’s. While some fans of his were in the comments supporting the shade that he threw, other’s questioned whether or not he was telling the truth. Several people replied “spill the tea Jeffree,” wanting him to release the names of the players. Rapper Waka Flocka Flame commented a laughing face emoji on the post as well. Was Jeffree talking to Andre at this time? It definitely could be a possibility.
Previously, many fans speculated that Jeffree was dating fellow Youtuber Mmmmitchell after it appeared that they were spending a lot more time together after Jeffree’s breakup. In a Youtube video doing a makeup tutorial using Star’s Blood Lust Eyeshadow Palette, they cleared up this speculation and made it clear that the two are just friends and stay in separate rooms when they are together. He also said that he was not going to be dating anyone so soon after his breakup. But it looks like Jeffree finally feels like he’s ready to move on.
The YouTuber has been involved in some serious drama lately after images resurfaced of his alleged racist past, so some fans are not so supportive of his new relationship. They left critical comments on his Instagram post. This eventually led him to remove the option of letting people comment on the post entirely.
