A different day, a different saga involving Kanye West. Except this time, ‘Ye is involved in his most jaw-dropping scandal yet. The rapper has been rumored to be romantically linked to makeup mogul Jeffree Star, and it’s all the chatter of the internet right now.
But not so fast, because one person is now taking credit for starting the false rumor.
Ava Louise, an influencer known for her viral videos including the ”coronavirus challenge,” is now taking credit for the widespread rumor. It all started when Louise posted a TikTok on January 6 talking about Kim Kardashian’s rumored divorce from Kanye. She then shed a little light on why the divorce might be happening, claiming Kanye has been “hooking up with a very famous beauty guru, male beauty guru.”
The internet very quickly assumed Louise was referencing Jeffree Star, but she’s now backtracking on her comments. “There is literally not one bit of truth to anything I have said,” she said in a follow-up TikTok video. “I just tricked the entire world into talking about me again because I was on a lot of Adderall and bored.”
“We all had fun though, didn’t we? You’re welcome for the memes,” she snidely added. You can watch the TikTok video here.
The scandal surfaced around the same time reports of Kanye West’s impending divorce from Kim Kardashian hit the internet. After seven years of marriage, the two are going their separate ways after having a major blowout, multiple reports claim.
Kim and Kanye have reportedly been on shaky ground since the summer, when Kanye started exhibiting bizarre behavior on social media seemingly because of his bipolar disorder, forcing his wife to defend him.
With more and more bad press bubbling up about their relationship, it seems that it’s the end of the road for KimYe.
