Jeffree Star Recovering from a Broken Back Following Wyoming Car Crash

YouTuber Jeffree Star and his friend Daniel Lucas are recovering after a car accident in Casper, Wyoming where his Rolls Royce was flipped three times after hitting a patch of black ice.

The makeup guru shared an update on Saturday morning via his Instagram Story.

He stated, “I leave the hospital today, I have to wear this crazy brace for a few months. And my back is really broke. My vertebrae, three of them are not attached right now. And I am in the most excruciating pain ever.”

Lucas had to stay in the hospital due to internal issues from colon cancer.

Star and Lucas thanked their fans for the love and support. The two did also receive a handful of hateful messages following the accident in which they said, “F*** those haters”.

Wyoming Highway Patrol Sergeant Jeremy Beck previously told PEOPLE that the crash was reported shortly after 8:30 a.m. local time on Friday. Star and “another person” were driving on Hat Six Road, and “ended up losing control, drove off the roadway and rolled.”

Star also took to social media to share photos of the wrecked Rolls Royce on Twitter and Instagram.

In a tweet, he wrote, “This was hard but I had to go see my car today. Thank God a #RollsRoyce is built with highly reinforced steel because it saved our lives. Time to heal and let my body repair.”

Star purchased property in Casper last year and has since been spending more and more time there.

The Jeffree Star Cosmetics founder is set to make a full recovery within a few months.
