The internet personality first spilled the beans on the shocking heist via Twitter earlier this week, writing: “I never knew I’d be spending my Monday night with the FBI tracking down black market makeup sellers.”

He later created a tell-all video which he shared to his YouTube channel regarding the theft.

“I didn’t get much sleep last night… New video will be up in 2 hours,” he teased about the vid, adding: “My new concealer line was stolen & leaked. Over $2 Million in products taken… The truth.”

In the video, he explained to his fans that he’d been working on the Magic Star concealer for a whole year before it leaked, calling the situation a “nightmare” he’s been living for weeks now.

“Two weeks ago, the morning of March 15, I uploaded the reveal video for the Blue Blood collection,” he started. “That night, at around 1 a.m., one of my stock and shipping facility warehouses was broken into and more than $2.5 million of product was stolen from me. This is the biggest theft I’ve ever experienced in my entire career. This is the biggest hit as a brand. I’m still shocked about the entire thing.”

Over the past week, photos of the collection have been showing up online but Jeffree said that he’d been expecting it since the robbery.

“These people were professional. I fully believe it was an inside job. I think that it was someone who temporarily worked there who tipped them off,” he said.

“I am so horrified that someone knew [the facility] wasn’t secure enough yet, and they hit us really hard. They came in through the roof. It was a very professional job. It was a team of people. And when you watch footage of this stuff, it is so gut-wrenching to see people just take your shit and put it in a truck and steal something that I’ve been working on for so long. I don’t even know how to explain it.”
