Tattoo artist – Kat Von D and YouTube star – Jeffree Star is caught in a heated battle with each other. Both makeup entrepreneurs used to be best friends, Von D had a liquid lipstick named after Jeffree and it will be discontinued soon.
Von D came on social media and spilled the beans on why she broke all ties with the beauty guru and old friend – Jeffree Star. She posted on Instagram a picture of Jeffree stating – “After years of making excuses for, and rationalizing Jeffree’s inappropriate behavior (including, promoting drug use, racism, and bullying) I can no longer hold my tongue after recent events.” The tattoo artist went in depth on why she decided to dissociate herself completely from Jeffree Star. In the video, she explained that she introduced Jeffree to the factory that makes her liquid lipsticks. Von D continued stating how Jeffree got his famous star logo in which he uses in his makeup collection and on his YouTube channel. Allegedly, she stated BJ Betts is the man behind the creation of the logo but Star made no effort in crediting or paying BJ.
