Is Jeffree Star OK? Fans are seriously worried about the YouTuber after he uploaded a video to his Instagram Stories on Monday, June 10, where he was legit bawling. Check out the video above.
In the emotional clip, the makeup mogul explained — as tears ran down his face — that one of his family members had sadly passed away.
“Hey you guys, there’s no easy way to say this but something really, really horrible has happened to us,” he said, as he broke down on camera. “I’ve been off my phone for days. We’ve been pretending to be on vacation and we’ve been home for 4 days now and I have really, really horrible news to share with you guys. We lost a member of our family this week. I’m so devastated and so heartbroken and I don’t even know what to say or think right now. Just know that I’ll be back soon.”
And since he didn’t specify who from his family had passed away, naturally, a ton of rumors quickly started spreading. But now, the 33-year-old has revealed in a new video uploaded to his YouTube channel on Tuesday, June 11 that it was his dog Diamond.
“This may be the hardest video that we’ve ever had to upload,” he said in the video, titled RIP Diamond.. Losing Our Best Friend. “There’s no easy way to say this. But a few days ago we lost a member of our family. Diamond Star, our beautiful 9-year-old Pomeranian, she passed away a few days ago.”
“Two days into it, Nate’s friend, who always watches our dogs with our security, he called us and he was really concerned,” he shared. “We got a call that she was doing really bad, like worse than ever, and we panicked and we started looking for flights home. We got an emergency flight home and before we could go to the airport, he called and said she was gone.”
“When we came home from the flight it was really, really rough,” the social media star continued. “But we got to come home and we got to say goodbye to her in the proper way, with all the dogs surrounding her.”
The YouTuber revealed that the pup unfortunately faced a lot of health problems before her sad passing.
“Diamond has had a lot of health problems for a really long time,” he added. “For the last year and a half she’s been having a lot of struggles. She was bred really small and she has a really small heart. She was so tough and to strong every day. Every day she was smiling.”
As fans know, the 33-year-old has five other dogs with his boyfriend, Nate Schwandt. They’re all Pomeranians, and have been featured in his YouTube videos and on his social media numerous times over the years.
“I’m so empty, I just feel so hollow,” he continued. “I can’t believe it, the fact that there’s one less in our tribe is so heartbreaking. I just feel so empty right here. If anyone else has ever had a loss of a pet you know how horrible and deep this is. I’m just so grateful that we got to spend so much time with her.”
“All I feel is sorrow. We’re surrounded by our dogs and the fact that my baby isn’t sitting in front of us is really, really hard,” Jeffree said. “She was such a huge part of my life. Diamond, I love you so much. Thank you for being so special in my life.”
“I wanted to share the news with everyone because I can’t just pretend and go on uploading makeup videos and act like nothings wrong. We have shared so much of our lives with you guys and this is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to say. We’ve been crying for two days straight and we’re so numb at this point,” he concluded. “We’re gonna go celebrate her life. I hope you guys understand we’re going to take some time off. I will see you very soon, we love you guys, thank you.
