Makeup mogul and controversial YouTuber Jeffree Star is no stranger to making headlines. From his friendship with Shane Dawson, to his warehouse robbery, to his reputation, to his relationship status, Jeffree has stayed relevant online partly for getting involved in drama and for sharing everything online.
In January of 2020, Jeffree revealed in an emotional vlog that he had ended his relationship with boyfriend of five years Nathan Schwandt.
The announcement shocked his 17.3 million subscribers, because it came on the heels of his $14.6 million Hidden Hills mansion purchase. He originally bought the home in the hopes of expanding his family with Nathan there some day. Since then, he's stayed mum on his personal life.
After a three week hiatus from YouTube, Jeffree returned with a makeup tutorial and vlog on Aug. 9. In "Addressing RUMORS About Me While Testing New Makeup," he confirmed whether or not he was dating again.

Is Jeffree Star single or has he found a new beau?
While testing out some new makeup products (and going back to his YouTube roots), Jeffree spoke out about several of the longstanding rumors about his personal life. He said that he was not in a relationship, but that he was talking to someone.
"Should we dispel a few rumors, Chris?" Jeffree said to videographer Christian Henry Smith. "I am currently single. I am not dating anyone. I am hanging out with someone, but we are not serious at all and I'm just f-----g enjoying my quarantine time."
Jeffree explained that he was focusing on his six dogs, who he said were all doing well. He did not say whether he thinks the relationship with the person he's "hanging out" with will develop into something further in the future.
The Conspiracy palette co-creator did not explicitly confirm who the new mystery man in his life is, but fans have a theory.
Jeffree Star has been linked to a former 'Big Brother' contestant.
The lead of The Beautiful World of Jeffree Star has been linked to influencer Jozea Flores, who got his start on Season 18 of CBS's Big Brother. The 29-year-old came in 15th place, and he later appeared on two MTV shows — The Challenge and Ex on the Beach.
Fans are convinced that Jozea is the person who Jeffree is hanging out with because the vlogger posted Instagram Stories in June of 2020 of Jozea hanging out on his property (and he was nude in a few).
But, Jozea appears to be back in Miami, Fla., while Jeffree is still at his Hidden Hills digs. It's unclear now if Jozea is the man who Jeffree is talking to.
As for what Jeffree's ex Nathan is up to these days, he is now based back in his home state of Michigan. Nathan has not posted any photos with a new significant other since his breakup with Jeffree. He was linked to fellow Michigan resident Leah Nelson in the spring of 2020, and the two do still follow one another on Instagram.
