These days, there is so much drama surrounding Jeffree Star, we're having trouble keeping up. This round? Star is feuding with fellow vlogger and former BFF Laura Lee.

A word of warning: This feud is a little complicated. Grab a cup of tea — we're going to be here for a while.

The beef started in November 2017, when Star posted these tweets, alluding to a falling out with someone in his inner circle.

This tweet was particularly savage.

Avid followers of Star had a little trouble figuring out who he was talking about. (Can you blame us? Star has a penchant for drama — in the past, he's publicly fallen out with Kat Von D, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and more.)

Eventually he spilled the tea via Instagram. When one fan speculated that Star was feuding with BFF Manny MUA, he said, "wasn't referring to him." Then another fan said, "I hope it isn't Laura [Lee]," Star replied, "You know nothing about her personally. Her soul is pure evil."

We're not 100 per cent sure what sparked the fall-out between Lee (and also Manny MUA). However, we have a feeling that Star was referring to his two former BFFs during an interview with Shane Dawson recently. "With my ex-friends, people still don't really know what went on," Star said. "Why do I feel like they need to know? Because there's so many versions of things that never happened out there."

"Half of the people still think I'm the bad guy, when I only loved and cared about all these people, boosted them up, and gave them all my connections, but I'm still the f*cking bad guy."

When the feud between Star and Lee became public knowledge, die-hard Star fans searched through Lee's internet history. They found a (since-deleted) racist tweet from 2012 where Lee said: "Tip for all black people if you pull ur pants up you can run from the police faster.."

Obviously fans were upset at Lee's racial slur. Recently, she issued an apology via YouTube:
