The influencer, who is also the founder of his namesake makeup brand, revealed on social media that he and his close friend Daniel Lucas were involved in a car accident in Wyoming, where Star has a home.
“A few hours ago Jeffree and Daniel were in a severe car accident and the car flipped three times after hitting black ice,” reads a tweet on Star’s account. “We will update you all when the doctor gives us more info. So thankful they are both alive.”

The tweet was posted with a photo of Star and Lucas, with Star laying in a hospital bed with a neck brace on and Lucas sitting next to him in a hospital gown.
Lucas posted the same photo and message on his Instagram Story, and later followed it up with a video of himself laying in a hospital bed.
“Hi guys, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone reaching out,” he said in the video. “I’m being admitted for some s–t. I’ll let you guys know what’s going on, but thank you guys.”
Star posted an update on his condition on Saturday, stating in an Instagram Story video that three of his vertebrae were no longer attached and that he would have to wear a back brace for the next few months. He also stated that he was being released from the hospital that day, but Lucas would have to stay because he may need to get surgery.
“Now the weather yesterday was really crazy,” Star said about the accident. “There was a lot of black ice on the road. If you dont know what that is, it’s crystal clear ice on top of the asphalt. My car hit it. I was driving — no we were not speeding. We hit it and [the car] went down off the highway onto the snow bank and we flipped and I think that was one of the scariest moments thinking it’s over, literally.”
