Manny also admitted to getting a Brazilian butt lift in 2014.
Manny asked his Instagram followers to give him rumours that they had heard about him on his Instagram Story. In the video, Manny pulls up the rumours, which included that he's pretending to be gay (he's definitely not) and that he's had butt implants (it's actually a Brazilian butt lift). Manny also revealed that 20% of the questions asked were about his relationship with James.
"I don't know what prompted the idea that me and James are anything more than just friends," he explained. "I can assure you guys that me and James are not fucking, we are not dating, we are not together, we are not any item in any way, shape or form. We are not together. We are friends. We have not hooked up. We are just not each other's type."
Manny then went deeper into his relationship with James. Apparently, James once "shaded" him on Twitter before they actually knew each other. Manny said he didn't like James for a long time because of it, but James has apologised to him since and now they're super "close".
"He apologised and was like, 'Yo, I am so sorry. Like that's not what I think of you and I was a dumb kid, who was in a not great place,'" he said. "And I forgave him. Now I'm just in such a cool spot with James and we do see each other pretty often actually, more often than we used to. It makes me pretty happy that we squashed our beef and now we're friends, and I'll tell you now we're actually pretty close."
"We talk pretty often. I'm just happy that we got to the spot where we are now in our relationship – and that doesn't include fucking."
The makeup guru went on to say that he is on "good terms" with Gabriel Zamora and Tati Westbrook again after some drama between them last year. "Me and her [Tati] had a fallout in our own way and you know, at the time I feel like I was so in my own world, I couldn't really see anything else other than what was going on in my world," Manny continued.
"And I think nowadays I'm so much more open and receptive and empathetic in different ways and I feel like that comes with growth and maturity and I really do feel like this year I've grown a lot. So when Tati sent me her palette from Tati Beauty, she sent me this note on it and all the past anguish or sadness, or anything I felt towards her – it went away."

He added: "I'm not saying we're best friends or anything, you know? It's not what it is, but I truly do respect her and I respect her hustle and what a hard-working woman she is and how she's built this amazing amazing career for herself."
