"Worry about how to pay your own bills, not who's in my mouth."

Jeffree Star has broken the internet after seemingly introducing the world to his new boyfriend, basketball player André Marhold, following his break up from ex-boyfriend Nathan Schwandt.

Over the weekend, the YouTuber shared a raunchy photo of himself sitting on the lap of his new man. The man's face wasn't visible in the image, only his heavily tattooed arms. As you know, the internet never rests, and soon people had already identified the mystery man simply from his arm tattoos.

After his identity was revealed, Jeffree later shared several photos of André in the pool and BBQing at Jeffree's new ranch in Wyoming, where he flew out his nearest and dearest to celebrate the release of his nude Jeffree Star Cosmetics Orgy palette.

Soon, Jeffree Star began trending on Twitter and people questioned why André, a Black man, would want to be with him considering Jeffree's past racist comments and problematic behaviour. Some even suggested that Jeffree might even be paying André to be with him.

In fact, André's ex-girlfriend commented on the photos and suggested he might be getting paid. She said: "He doesn't even like black people […] I'm not embarrassed just crazy what people do for money." André has not confirmed if the woman is actually his ex-girlfriend and some of her tweets have been deleted.

Well, Jeffree has now insisted that he has never had to pay anyone to date him. "I know it’s devastating news for some people, but I don’t give money to anyone I’m dating or anyone who is fucking me," Jeffree tweeted. "Work on your own insecurities sis, I’m not the problem."

He added: "Worry about how to pay your own bills, not who’s in my mouth. Thank you, God bless – Upper management."

Jeffree went on to call out people being homophobic in regards to his new relationship. He continued: "Goood morning everyone!! The homophobia is really jumping out this morning... Let it out, I don’t mind. Some of ya‘ll need some coffee and a hug."
