Nothing hurts quite like the loss of a pet, and sadly, Jeffree Star is feeling that today. The beauty guru posted teary series of Instagram Stories yesterday, saying he just lost a family member.
“I have really, really horrible news to share with you guys,” he said through tears. “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.”
Jeffree also admitted that he and his boyfriend, Nathan Schwandt, had been pretending to still be on vacation while they were instead home dealing with the loss. He didn’t mention anyone by name, but fans immediately began to worry that one of Jeffree’s beloved pups had died.
Today, the beauty guru confirmed that his 9-year-old pomeranian, Diamond, had passed away. This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.
“Words can’t begin to explain the loss and heartache we are feeling right now,” he wrote in an Instagram post. “For a third of my life, she made me smile every single day. And to wake up this morning and not have her smiling back at me hurts so bad.”
He and Nathan also posted a YouTube video to his channel that explained what happened in further detail. Jeffree said Diamond had been having health problems, including alopecia, for the past year and a half. But while he and Nathan were on vacation last week in Turks and Caicos, things took a turn for the worse.
“We got a call that she was doing really bad—like worse than ever,” Jeffree said. “We panicked and we started looking for flights home.”
Nathan’s best friend, who was watching Diamond, called the couple and told them Diamond had passed away before they could get to the airport.
Jeffree, Nathan, and their five other poms were able to give Diamond a proper goodbye once they got home, but the fam is still feeling the loss. Both Jeffree and Nathan said they would be taking some time off to “celebrate her life.”
They included some adorable clips of the pup in the memorial video, which you can peep below. Try not to cry. This content is imported from YouTube. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

The beauty star explained the medication ‘suppresses the body’s ability to fight back’ and therefore adding extra risk to a move like surgery.
He tweeted: ‘#RIPDaddyStar. With heavy hearts we have to share the devastating news that our dog Daddy passed away early this morning.
Fans flooded Jeffree’s page with condolences and fellow YouTube star Shane Dawson was among those offering Jeffree support.
The nine-part project looks to be a continuation of Shane’s earlier series The Secret World Of Jeffree Star after the two became close friends.
Yesterday, Jeffree Star shared the heartbreaking news that his beloved dog Daddy had passed away following complications after emergency surgery.
“I can’t believe that I’m even typing this right now but our dog Daddy has to have immediate surgery & has an abscess in his liver… The doctor just told Nate and I that he has a 50% chance of living… I’m so fucking devastated and wish I could trade places with him right now.”
The musician and cosmetics entrepreneur took to Twitter Oct. 4 revealing his dog Daddy had an abscess on his liver and would need immediate surgery. Due to the medication he was on for his autoimmune deficiency, it would make surgery very risky.
“The reason we are really scared is because Daddy has an auto immune deficiency in his brain and has been on medication for months which suppresses the body from fighting back and makes surgery very risky… I truly can’t believe this is happening.””
“#RIPDaddyStar With heavy hearts we have to share the devastating news that our dog Daddy passed away early this morning. His body couldn’t handle the surgery + the complications of his medical condition. I can’t put into words how much we love our pets and how much this hurts.””
YouTuber and makeup mogul Jeffree Star announced on Instagram Saturday that his pet dog Daddy passed away earlier in the day following an emergency surgery.
Star tweeted Saturday that Daddy made it out of surgery and was in stable condition hours before the announcement of Daddys passing.
Drag queen and YouTuber Kimora Blac wrote, “So so sorry babe! I recently lost one of mine after 16 years and its never easy! You gave him an amazing life and he will always be with you in spirit! Sending love to you and Nate.”
“I cant put into words how much we love our pets and how much this hurts. Daddy meant the world to us and was such a light in our home,” Star wrote in the Instagram post.
Star elaborated on Daddys medical condition in another tweet, writing, “The reason we are really scared is because Daddy has an auto immune deficiency in his brain and has been on medication for months which suppresses the body from fighting back and makes surgery very risky.”
