In July 2019, Jeffree surprised his then-boyfriend Nathan with a $155,000 Aston Martin.
Basically, last year Jeffree decided to sell Nathan Schwandt's Bentley and trade it in for a brand new Aston Martin Vantage in Lime Essence – Nate's "dream car". In the video – titled Surprising My Boyfriend With His Dream Car! – Jeffree told Nate that he had sold his "favourite' car and he took the news surprisingly well. Jeffree then pulled up to their house in the Aston Martin the next day.
"That doesn't sound like... oh, what the fuck?" Nathan said as Jeffree pulled up in the driveway in the luxury car, wearing a lime green wig and Hermes Birkin to match. "Holy shit." He added: "I'm speechless. Yeah, this is a little nicer than a Bentley."
Jeffree then said: "I know we talked about this loosely a few months ago but… surprise!" Well, it turns out, it wasn't quite the surprise it first seemed. In fact, the whole thing was fake.

"The car was always mine and in my name. I paid for it and always dreamed of owning an Aston Martin from watching James Bond 007 movies as a kid! We did this video to create content and do something fun, but sadly, this was us acting and was not a real, genuine surprise. lol."

Jeffree hasn't addressed the changes on social media, however, the description and title now appears to have been changed back to the original text – but not before fans caught the subtle shade.
