Trisha Paytas called Jeffree Star "awful and evil" and a "mean girl" while ranting on social media about how Star and his friends have treated her.
Star's hairdresser, who goes by "Hair by Jay" on social media, made a video threatening Paytas and exposing text messages sent between the two about a payment dispute for wig services.
In response, Paytas tearfully said Star attacked her weight, appearance, and substance abuse during a trip the pair took to Las Vegas with Jay on Valentine's Day in 2019.
Paytas also addressed Star's friendship with Shane Dawson, who is one of Paytas' oldest friends on YouTube. Paytas criticized Dawson's "constant promoting" of Star.
YouTuber Trisha Paytas says she's "done" with makeup mogul and beauty personality Jeffree Star and his friends after a hair stylist claimed Paytas had lied about a 2020 Las Vegas trip the three of them attended. In a rant on YouTube, as well as in follow-up social media posts, Paytas said Star is "evil" and she no longer supports her long-time friend Shane Dawson "constantly promoting" Star, like on Dawson's fiancé's recent podcast.
In her YouTube video "Why I'm scared of jeffree and hairbyjay," Paytas played clips from the hair stylist's recent Instagram Live, during which he criticized Paytas, talked about the Las Vegas trip, and showed text messages between himself and Paytas.
The stylist goes by "Hair by Jay" on social media, and he attacked Paytas for being offended about comments Star made about her while in Las Vegas, claiming that Star had paid for most of the trip. He also discussed a payment dispute over wig services he had provided to Paytas.
In response, Paytas reiterated the same claims that Jay admitted to in his livestream, that he, Star, and Star's other guests in Las Vegas had attacked Paytas' skin, weight, appearance, personality, spending habits, substance abuse issues, and more. Paytas previously said the trip left her "in tears" and that she went home early.
"Jeffree brought me on a trip to s--- on me and I can't have a say because he paid for it," Paytas said during her rant. "They think they can just do that, that if you go on trip someone paid for they're just allowed to pi-- on you. In front of my face and behind my back, there's so much video out there."
Paytas said that Jay overcharged her for the wig services he provided to her but that she paid him anyways. She said she is "genuinely scared" of the hairdresser and of Star.
"I'm so hurt and disgusted by all of this," Paytas said while crying during the video. She accused Jay of doxxing her by leaking her phone number and the name of her business which was shown in texts between the two.
Jeffree Star denied that he attacked Paytas like his hairstylist, but Paytas claims to have heard a voice memo of Star
In tweets responding to Paytas' video, Star rebuked his hairstylist and claimed he didn't make the same kinds of attacks about Paytas' appearance, tweeting "Let's not pretend I had any part in that."
"I've already said my piece to her and if she ever wants to call or text me back, she will," Star went on to tweet. "What Jay said on live was f---ing disgusting and does not reflect how I've ever felt."
Paytas has said she heard a voice memo of Star and his friends saying cruel things about her behind her back, but she also said that Star insulted her to her face on the trip, even going so far as to knock her hand away from a nacho she reached for and telling her "Don't eat."
In the same video, Paytas addressed Star's friendship and frequent collaborations with Dawson, who Paytas defended through his 2020 scandals over old, offensive content. Paytas says Dawson is aware of how Star criticized her and that she was angry with Dawson and his fiancé for having Star on their recent podcast episode.
"Anyone who supports Jeffree is awful, like these are awful people," Paytas went on to say through tears. "I have my own problems, I do, I am not perfect, but I am not a nasty person to other people like this."
The YouTuber went on to say that she felt "triggered" by Jay's actions because of what happened in Las Vegas and because she has recently struggled with addiction and mental health, spending time in a mental health recovery institution.
Paytas said Star has called her multiple times and she hasn't been willing to talk to him. She said she told Star that she needed space and time to process what happened, and that she'll never want to hang out with him and his friends because they're "disgusting and mean."
In a follow-up TikTok, Paytas said she doesn't support Dawson "constantly promoting" Star, who she called "awful and evil." Paytas later appeared on the H3H3 podcast and said she was "heated" in the moment of creating the YouTube video and TikToks about the situation, but that she is "done" with staying quiet about Star's treatment of her.
In the same H3H3 podcast appearance, Paytas claimed that Jay was outside her house a few days earlier and that her security guard said that Jay took pictures of her house. Paytas claimed she has hired additional 24/7 security. Jay and Star didn't respond to Insider's request for comment.
