They have a fascinating relationship with expensive vacations to locations like Bora Bora, a very open life and a lot of controversies that seem to entertain them more than bother them. 

So, let's take a look at some of the controversies related to the pair. 

Jeffree Star and Nathan Schwandt's Relationship Controversies

Starting from the beginning, Nathan was a straight man before dating Star and had only dated women in the past. However, as Star entered his life, things changed, and he got indulged in a gay relationship. 

Many of Star's fans and critics were not satisfied with the sudden transition of Nathan from a straight man to being in a gay relationship. He was accused of dating Star only for his money and was labeled as a gold digger. 

To date, many people think the same way about Nathan, but Jeffree had explained many times how he was not wealthy when he met Nathan, and they together made the empire they own today. 

While there were numerous questions raised in the past about their relationship, let's hop on to the most recent one. In April 2018, a personal picture of his leaked on the internet and this created chaos. The image was 100% authentic, and Nathan had sent it to a woman. 

The old claims again came back as Star's fans again started questioning if Nathan was loyal to him. Like always, Jeffree went to the rescue and revealed that the picture was sent to one of their temporary partners.
