Laura Lee Apologizes to Former BFF Jeffree Star for Shady Twitter Picture
Laura Lee and Jeffree Star used to be the best of friends, but had a serious falling out, which prompted the 32-year-old to call the 29-year-old “pure evil.” The feud was reignited last week when fellow beauty guru Gabriel Zamora posted a picture of himself, Laura, Manny Mua and Nikita Dragun giving the middle finger and captioning it, “Bitch is bitter because without him we’re doing better,” seemingly referencing Jeffree.
When Laura posted her apology video on YouTube yesterday, she not only addressed her past racism (well — at least she kind of adressed it), but also apologized to her former BFF directly.
She said in the sob-filled vid, “Me and Gabriel and Nikita and Manny took a picture with our middle fingers up and we were trying to mimic Kylie Jenner‘s birthday picture. And the picture was taken out of context and it ended up causing pain for other people and I just wanted to say I’m sorry to Jeffree for the pain we may have caused you in this. I didn’t know that that picture was going to be taken out of context and that anything was going to be said to you. But at the end of the day it was done, so I need to owe you an apology for this. And I know we’re not friends anymore, but I want to apologize to you.”
The CEO of Jeffree Star Cosmetics hasn’t yet spoken out about LL’s apology, but he did tweet the side-eye emoji shortly after the video was posted.

Will the drama between these former YouTube besties ever end? Will we ever get answers as to what the heck ended their friendship in the beginning? A few weeks ago, we would’ve said heck no, but at this point, you never freakin’ know what could happen and what could be exposed.
