Newly minted Wyoming resident and beauty YouTuber Jeffree Star recently donated $25,000 to a local fundraiser in Casper and gave a radio interview with a local station promoting the charitable act, but noticeably absent from the interview and from Star's social media tour of Wyoming was any mention of his latest controversy. Earlier this week, leaked documents appeared to show a Jeffree Star Cosmetics executive paying one of Star's sexual assault accusers $45,000 to derail Insider's investigation into allegations of sexual assault and abuse against Star. Despite calls from followers to address the controversy, and chatter among YouTube's community devoted to influencer drama, Star has yet to address the documents. 

In an interview with local radio station 104.7 KISS-FM, Star said it was his first official week as a Casper, WY resident, listing off local establishments that's he's visited. He said that he's also planning on opening several businesses in the "fulfillment center field," bringing local jobs into the city.

Star also said in the interview that he "[loves] giving back," and when he moved to Wyoming his realtor showed him the Food for Thought charity. The Wyoming Food For Thought Project, along with other local charities, participates in Casper's annual "Stuff The Van" food and toy drive, which aims to bring food and gifts to children throughout the holidays. Star reportedly donated $25,000 to the effort, according to 104.7 KISS-FM.

Star has intermittently been posting from Wyoming after he says he purchased a home there, and now he says he plans to live there part-time. On this trip, Star posted photos and videos of him driving through an open landscape and shooting a gold-plated gun at a range. 

The interview was the first the celebrity has given since his most recent controversy, but he didn't address it in the segment.

Earlier this week, leaked documents obtained by StickyDrama.com appeared to show that Jeffree Star Cosmetics executive Scott C. Andrews paid Gage Arthur, who initially told Insider that Star had sexually assaulted him before retracting his interview, $45,000 as part of a settlement agreement.

Insider's Kat Tenbarge reported in October that Arthur had accused Star of performing nonconsensual oral sex on him at Star's home in 2009, also alleging that Star used a close-range tasing device to shock him hours before. Arthur later attempted to retract his allegations to Insider after saying that he had been contacted by Star's lawyers.

Star's lawyers previously denied the allegations of violence and sexual assault. Neither Andrews nor Star responded to questions about the alleged settlement and payment. 

The allegations have made waves in YouTube's community devoted to drama, and many of Star's followers have replied to his tweets asking him to address the controversy.
