Jeffree Star's dog Daddy dies following complications from surgery

Jeffree Star has been left devastated over the death of his pet dog Daddy Star.

The make up guru took to Twitter to announce the heartbreaking news and told fans he was unable to express his loss in words.

He tweeted: ‘#RIPDaddyStar. With heavy hearts we have to share the devastating news that our dog Daddy passed away early this morning.

‘His body couldn’t handle the surgery + the complications of his medical condition. I can’t put into words how much we love our pets and how much this hurts.’

Daddy died after suffering complications from an emergency surgery needed to treat an abscess in his liver.

Hours before confirming he had passed away, Jeffree had told fans that Daddy was stable following the op, despite doctors revealing the pup had a 50% chance of living.

Sharing several updates online about the surgery, Jeffree explained it had been risky as Daddy had been on medication ‘for months’ due to an auto immune deficiency in his brain.

The beauty star explained the medication ‘suppresses the body’s ability to fight back’ and therefore adding extra risk to a move like surgery.

Fans flooded Jeffree’s page with condolences and fellow YouTube star Shane Dawson was among those offering Jeffree support.

Shane tweeted: ‘Rest in peace to the sweetest soul in the world :(,’ while Ninja added: ‘So sorry Jeffree 🙁 sending our love.’

Daddy’s death sadly comes nearly four months after Jeffree’s dog Diamond died in June.

Jeffree, who said his heart was broken into a million pieces, tweeted: ‘Nathan and I know that Daddy and Diamond are together watching over us.’

Shane and Jeffree have been working together on his new series The Beautiful World of Jeffree Star. 

The nine-part project looks to be a continuation of Shane’s earlier series The Secret World Of Jeffree Star after the two became close friends.
