On January 15, Beauty YouTuber Jeffree Star slams back at Trisha Paytas after she calls him and Hair By Jay out in a new video, saying that he refuses to be dragged back into a public drama.
For those who don't know, Trisha Paytas recently uploaded a YouTube video titled “why I’m scared of jeffree and hairbyjay”. In the video, Trisha reacts to an aggressive Instagram Live by Jeffree's friend and hairstylist Hair By Jay.
During the livestream, Hairbyjay talks about payment disputes for wig services he provided Trisha back in the 2020 Vegas trip that Trisha, Jeffree and himself went on.
Hair By Jay refers to Trisha as a “stupid walrus looking a** full of warts b****” among other slurs in the live stream as well as attacking Trisha on her weight, appearance and how she does not own her own house.
Fast forward, and in Trisha’s video, fans can see a tearful Trisha watching the Instagram Live. She states that this was the type of behavior she had to endure whenever she was with Jeffree and his friends, both in front of and behind her back.
