Jeffree Star, makeup consultant and social media entrepreneur, is in “excruciating pain” but survived a car crash in Wyoming this morning that hospitalized him.
Star and Daniel Lucas were driving in Wyoming when they struck a patch of black ice. Their car tipped over three times, according to Star’s social media accounts.
Star is now in a neck brace. “We’ll keep you all posted when the doctor gives us more information,” Star’s post said. “So thankful that they’re both alive.”
Earlier, Star shared the details. “This morning has been one of the scariest moments of our entire lives,” the YouTube star, 35, wrote in a post shared on Instagram and Twitter. “I’m so grateful to be here again. I have excruciating pain because part of my back is broken and I have fractured vertebrae on my spine.
“My doctor said it would take a few months but I should make a full recovery,” he continued.
Star’s friend Daniel Lucas suffered internal injuries.
“My best friend Daniel has internal injuries and because he’s a colon cancer survivor three times he’s having complications with his organs and they’re watching him 24/7,” Star wrote. “We will know more soon. Thank you to everyone who watches us. “
Star has 16.5 million subscribers on YouTube. He is the founder and owner of Jeffree Star Cosmetics. Forbes reported that he made $ 18 million from his YouTube efforts alone in 2018.
