Are Jeffree Star And Tati Westbrook Feuding? Fans Speculate Bloggers Are ‘Rifting’ Over Product Launch Dates
30 October 2019, 12:26
Jeffree Star and Tati Westbrook have fans convinced they’re feuding.
Months after YouTuber James Charles’ epic fallout with Tati Westbrook, it looks like internet stars are at war once again after Jeffree Star unfollowed Tati on Instagram.
Tati and Jeffree are thought to have been close friends, so this cryptic move certainly says a lot.
While there are plenty of theories over their rumoured fallout on social media, most of them reckon it’s do with the fact Tati has launched her first ever palette around the same time Jeffree’s collaboration with Shane Dawson, Conspiracy, is set to drop.
Jeffree X Shane’s hotly-anticipated makeup line will be released on 1 November, a week after Tati’s eyeshadow palette came out on 25 October.
While neither of the bloggers have addressed their feud, they’re also yet to publicly congratulate one another on their latest launches – something big time bloggers tend to do in support of each other.
Fans are now speculating the reason behind the rift, with many guessing it’s down to the fact the timing of their product launches means they’ll be competing for Christmas sales.
Many are also deconstructing everything Tati has been saying, searching for the shade in all her tweets.
When she tweeted in support of YouTuber Manny MUA who filmed a review on Tati’s eyeshadow palette, she wrote: “So grateful you would review my shadow – especially when you just launched a beautiful collection of your own… pretty damn selfless and I’m kinda blown away!”
Her followers then picked up on this, with one speculating: “I could've sworn tati wasn't too happy with jeffree and shane for having their collab so close to hers but has no problem with manny??? [sic].”
And when one person quizzed why she would associate herself with Manny, Tati replied: “He's supporting me & I appreciate the hell out of it! We respect each other but aren't super close, so the fact the he's supporting my launch means the world! It's been a lonely year & I'm super grateful.”
Some are also claiming Jeffree has been blocking anyone supporting Tati.
Oh so Jeffree and Tati fell out because Jeffree wouldn’t move the date of the Shane collab away from the launch of Tati Beauty... now we know— Dan (@dannycharleston) October 16, 2019
It makes me sad Tati has always supported Jeffree Star giving him praise. Now it's her time to shine and he unfollows her and doesn't congratulate her. He inserted himself in the whole drama. SMH— amie burke (@BurkeAmieb5430) October 22, 2019
Have we noticed that Jeffree didn’t say anything about tati’s makeup line or a congrats today, and Tati hasn’t said anything about their collab. I thought they were cool but maybe really are taking a step back from one another idk. I hope they both still love eachother— kiwi (@kayleys_there) October 26, 2019
I think after the James drama they are just staying mutuals. She’s never shared the excitement about the conspiracy palette. I don’t really think there’s any drama behind it— ig: ryleymua (@ryleymadison2) October 26, 2019
At the end of the day it’s friggin makeup. There is enough room in the billion dollar pool for both Shane and Tati. I think love, kindness and support are what’s important. Why isn’t Jeffree supporting Tati after ALL the support she has given on her channel?? Disappointing.— Mary Bush (@luvsandnsurf) October 25, 2019
Jeffree and Shane were waiting for Tati to drop her launch date so they could post episode 4 and drop their date too. And she waited until JC announced his release date for the mini pallette... shit is about to go down with those 4.— ✵ 𝖆𝖛𝖊𝖓𝖌𝖊𝖗𝖘 𝖆𝖘𝖘𝖊𝖒𝖇𝖑𝖊! ✵ (@tatiluusworld) October 19, 2019
Whether Jeffree and Tati are feuding or not, the makeup artist may have ignited another rift elsewhere in the meantime after branding blogger Michelle Dy’s beauty line “trash”.
One fan tagged him in a comment which said: “I want Jeffree Star to do a honest review of Michelle Dy’s makeup basics…” and Jeffree hit back: “I don’t have time to review trash on my channel!”
Jeffree is known for his sarcastic comebacks, but these two have had beef in the past when Star accused Michelle of copying his now-trademarked phrase “Jeffrree Star Approved” when she launched a video series called “MD Approved” – something she later issued an apology for.
The beauty bloggersphere drama is never ending!
