Fans and friends sent their support in the comments. “I love you so much,” wrote one person. “Hi Jeffree! I’m also going through a really hard time in life. I watched your snaps earlier, and it gave me so much hope. You said we can start over and I’m here for that! Thank you and I love you!” a second person commented. “You are beautiful, and I wish you nothing but the best!” replied a third person.

Jeffree announced the breakup on his YouTube channel on January 11. “There’s no easy way to say this but we did break up,” he said in the 17-minute-video before adding they ended their 5-year relationship amicably. “Me and Nathan will be friends forever, I will always have love for him,” the beauty guru confirmed. “Are we in love with each other? No. But we love each other and he will always be in my life.”

He continued, “I’ve used a lot of this time of silence to just try to heal. We’re both in a state of shock. I’m devastated, I’m so sad. And the love of my life is no longer — I don’t wake up to him anymore. He’s no longer here every morning and my routines have changed and I’m just in a state of shock right now. We both are.”

Jeffree went on to clarify that the breakup is super serious. “This isn’t an internet fight. , this is my real life and me and my soulmate are really going through it.” Hopefully, they’re able to work things out.
