Makeup mogul Jeffree Star is keen to step into the influential boxing space, especially after the past drama he went through with James Charles and Tati Westbrook.
The influential boxing bug is taking over social media as creators from all walks of life seek to work out their issues with other personalities in the ring.
names like jack and Logan Paul, along with major boxing events like iDubbbz’s Creator Clash, are putting the sport back on the map in a huge way… and the makeup mogul jeffree star is willing to take a part of the action.
Star appeared on a June 14 episode of Logan Paul’s IMPAULSIVE podcast to discuss her career when the topic was brought up, primarily in relation to the drama she experienced with beauty gurus James Charles and Tati Westbrook.
To briefly explain past drama: In 2019, James Charles was at the center of a massive scandal after fellow influencer Tati Westbrook released a video accusing him of inappropriate behavior.
His video went extremely viral, causing Charles to lose hundreds of thousands of subscribers.
Things seemed to balance out for Charles after he posted a now-deleted video explaining his side of the situation, titled ‘No More Lies’, resulting in a push back against Tati’s earlier claims.
Westbrook later uploaded a video claiming that Jeffree Star and fellow YouTuber Shane Dawson had goaded her into creating their initial exposure, leading to a huge backlash against both stars, resulting in Shane Dawson eventually being banned from YouTube due to public outrage.
After all of this, Star says he’s willing to settle the score in the boxing ring against other influencers and claims he has street fighting experience to back him up.
“I’m always up for that,” he said. “In fact, I know how to fight in the street. I am ready for anything.”
“I’ve been mugged by five guys before,” he continued. “I know how to fight.”
