YouTuber and makeup mogul Jeffree Star has shared a multitude of updates regarding his health and well-being following a rollover car accident on Friday morning.
“I’m in excruciating pain because part of my back is broken and I have vertebrae fractures on my spine. My doctor said it will take a few months but I should make a full recovery,” Star wrote on Twitter on Friday following the accident, which he called one of the scariest moments of his life.
Star and his best friend Daniel Lucas were involved in the accident on Friday morning on Hat Six Road near Casper. They were driving northbound when Star’s Rolls Royce hit some slush, causing the car to go off the roadway and roll multiple times.
Lucas, who suffered from internal injuries in the crash, was taken to Las Vegas for surgery, according to Star. Lucas has been treated for colon cancer multiple times, creating medical complications.
Star was discharged from the Wyoming Medical Center on Saturday. He posted photos of his Rolls Royce over the weekend, saying how grateful he was the vehicle was made from reinforced steel, which he said kept Lucas and him alive.
“The pain is 10 times worse than yesterday but we are doing ok. Love you guys so much,” he wrote on Sunday.
The makeup mogul, whose line Jeffree Star Cosmetics is worth about $1.5 billion, is planning a launch for his new line Star Lounge this week, and is attempting to not let the car accident slow him down.
He was still in pain as of Monday morning, but noted that some close friends and family flew in to Wyoming to see him.
Star spent much of the weekend retweeting photos from fans meeting him and Lucas at various events over the years, as well as a post from Lucas saying he wanted to be healthy.
