The TikTok personality who spread that rumor about Kanye West (left) dating makeup guru Jeffree Star (right) now admits she made up the whole affair for 'likes' and 'follows'.
TikTok influencer Ava Louise got the ball rolling when she dropped a video claiming she had insider information about Kanye and Jeffree's secret romance.
The rumor went viral because the left-wing blogosphere is hungry for reports about bisexual celebrities hooking up -- particularly Black bisexual stars.
There is an unfounded theory that Black people are more homophobic than any race or ethnicity on earth.
Another reason the rumor circulated so widely is Kim Kardashian, 40, is filing for divorce from Kanye, 43, who checked out of their marriage about 2 years ago and moved to rural Wyoming for good in 2019.
Jeffree, 35, trolled his 14.2 million followers by sharing photos from Wyoming and declaring he was "ready for Sunday Service."
Sunday Service is a hip-hop worship service led by Kanye to promote his projects and political aspirations.
After the rumor was disputed by Kanye's camp and by Jeffree, Louise, 22, returned to TikTok this week, saying:
"I'm not even getting sued, I made this entire scandal up. There's literally not one bit of truth to anything I have said. I just tricked the entire world into talking about me again because I was on a lot of Adderall and bored."
Louise previously earned an invitation to the Dr. Phil show after she recorded herself licking a toilet for the "coronavirus challenge" last year.
She lost followers after she claimed she'd tested positive for the coronavirus.
She added. "We all had fun though didn't we? You're welcome for the memes."
