Well, hello, boys! YouTuber Jeffree Star and new boyfriend Andre Marhold turned heads while donning incredible rainbow Versace robes representing “equality” on Friday, September 4, two weeks after making their relationship Instagram official.
“LOVE ALWAYS WINS,” the 34-year-old captioned the set of two photos of himself and his new beau cuddled up to one another and rocking the garments. Jeffree even included a rainbow emoji and the hashtag “#equality.”
The Jeffree Star cosmetics founder and the basketball player went public with their romance on August 23. “Thankful for all the blessings God has brought into my life this year,” the beauty guru captioned a photo of himself kissing Andre while sitting on his lap, though both of their faces were obstructed in the shot.
After some eagle-eyed detective work from fans, the man in the photo was identified as Andre based on the tattoos on his arms. Shortly after it was determined the Giessen 46ers small forward was indeed Jeffree’s new man, the makeup artist started unabashedly sharing images filled with PDA from their recent trip to the mountains of Wyoming.
At the same time, Jeffree got into a digital altercation with one of the athlete’s exes, Lo, who claimed Andre was only entering a relationship with the vlogger because he was being paid.
“I know it’s devastating news for some people, but I don’t give money to anyone I’m dating or anyone who is f—king me,” Jeffree clapped back on Twitter. “Work on your own insecurities, sis, I’m not the problem.”
Life & Style exclusively spoke with another one of Andre’s exes, Leezy, with whom he shares a son named Amari. She was “completely devastated” and “humiliated” to learn of the relationship through social media.
“I trusted him because he said he was going there for work,” Leezy, 34, explained of Andre’s sudden move to Los Angeles after he claimed he would return in 10 days. “Then, you know, I tried to communicate with him, but it was just like hard to. So, from this day until now, we’ve had, like, no communication.”
The model added, “I’m still hurt and confused about the situation because I do not know, I don’t know what’s going on, honestly.”
