Fans of Jeffree Star have been sent into a frenzy after the YouTuber teased a romantic relationship with an NFL player.
Ahead of the 57th Super Bowl set to go ahead tomorrow, Sunday, 12 February, 2023, Star - who rose to fame for his make-up tutorials on YouTube - Star uploaded a video of him and a National Football League (NFL) player to TikTok. See what you make of the clip here:
Uploaded from Scottsdale, Arizona, Star the video shows the YouTuber and former singer-songwriter side-by-side with a man with his back to the camera.
The man slowly turns around to reveal himself as Taylor Lewan - American football tackle for the Tennessee Titans.
The caption to the video reads: "Who’s ready for #Superbowl Sunday?? 🏈 #nfl #jeffreestar #arizona #boo #beauty."
The hashtags accompanying the video have sparked speculation amongst the YouTuber's fans over whether there's a romantic connection between Star - real name Jeffrey Lynn Steininger Jr - and the sportsman.
As a result of the hashtag '#boo' fans have leapt at the suggestion the NFL star may be romantically linked to Star.
One user said: "Me like idk who that is but yas king."
"Jeffrey got a taste with men!" another wrote.
A third commented: "OKAY JEFFREE WITH THE FINEST TASTE."
Speculation has been growing as it's not the first post Star has shared with a mysterious NFL player in tow stirring rumours of romance.
On 30 January, Star uploaded another video of an NFL player with their back to the camera alongside the caption: "His team didn’t make it to the #SuperBowl but he’s 6’6 and plays perfect in the bedroom."
The YouTuber also uploaded a picture of him holding hands with someone, commenting: "Goodbye LA, time to spend time with my #NFL boo in Wyoming."
However, some followers have been quick to realise the posts are likely all part of a clever marketing ploy by the YouTuber and that Star and Lewin are not actually linked by romance, but by a podcast - Star appearing on Lewan's podcast 'Bussin With the Boys'.
"That’s not the boyfriend. That’s Taylor Lewan and they’re going to do a podcast together," one fan revealed.
Others went in full-on Sherlock mode and even compared the back of Lewan to the other videos posted by Star.
One user resolved: "Y’all this isn’t the same guy in the other pic look at the hair big difference. Lol this is jefreee doing Jeffree things making us all on edge."
