Jeffree Star has moved into a new home… and it’s insane.
Star, 34, has brought a property rumored to have cost $14.6million in California’s Hidden Hills.
Not that that figure should be a stretch for the gay vlogger. Despite reminding us at the start of his latest YouTube video he had just $500 to his name six years ago, it was recently revealed that he was in the top five of YouTube earners of 2019, netting an estimated $17million.
That figure was slightly down on 2018’s $18million, but suffice to say, he’s unlikely to be hunting for loose change down the back of the sofa any time soon.
Star, 34, began his career as a musician on MySpace, but launched his own cosmetics brand in 2014 and hasn’t looked back since. His Jeffree Star cosmetics line is now one of the most successful brands in the US.
He and boyfriend Nathan Schwandt moved into the property a few weeks ago. It’s still pretty empty but they’re in the process of having it redecorated and all their possessions moved in.
Star made a 36-minute video while showing around friends and fellow vloggers Shane Dawson and Ryland, who are dumbstruck when they pull up in their car, commenting it’s like arriving at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas.
The mansion has ten bedrooms (which we’re sure probably all have ensuite bathrooms), a 16-car garage, a huge home gym, a luxurious movie theater, and a glass elevator between floors.
Skip to the video’s 11-minute mark to check out the biggest kitchen you’ll find outside of a Michelin-star restaurant. Star’s bedroom is like its a mini-apartment in itself.
Star says he’s moving some members of his own family in with him, including his mother, because, “not to be really dark – I don’t know much longer she has left, and I want to spend every moment I can with her.”
The property, on a gated community, will also be protected by live-in security.
Star says that more than money, he’s now at a place in his life where he’s truly happy – which is a bigger measure of success than how many bedrooms his new crib offers.
And the thought he wants his followers to take away from the video? “No dream is ever too big.”
