Jeffree Star rose to fame for his outspoken videos on his YouTube Channel and for his makeup brand, Jeffree Star Cosmetics, all while amassing a veritable fortune. Given Star’s immense wealth and his opulent lifestyle, many people might be wondering if Jeffree Star owns a private jet.
Jeffree Star does not own a private jet. He does, however, frequently charter one when he needs to travel. Given that Star is constantly surrounded by his film crew, assistants, friends and bodyguards, flying via private jet is much easier than coordinating that many people on a commercial flight.
Read more below about Jeffree Star’s wealthy lifestyle, his frequent travel, and his plans to buy his own private jet eventually.
Jeffree Star’s net worth is estimated to be around $200 million and his makeup company, Jeffree Star Cosmetics is valued at $1.5 billion. Star amassed his fortune between his YouTube channel, his makeup line, investment properties and his other businesses, with Star saying, “I own an entire shipment and fulfillment center, I own a merchandise company, I print and manufacture everything myself. So I have about ten businesses that I’m currently running besides my brand which is my cosmetics company.”
Though Star could afford to buy his own private jet, it would set him back anywhere from $3 million to $90 million depending on the size and type of jet, and not including upkeep and maintaining a flight crew.. Like Star, most celebrities instead choose to charter private jets, which start in the much more reasonable range of $10,000.
The Perks of Private Planes
Celebrities often travel via private plane because of the convenience. When chartering a private plane, the travelers get to control the schedule, they do not have to wait in line or pass through security, they can bring their pets aboard without the hassle of airport protocols, they have a complete flight crew and staff at their beck and call, and private jets often fly out of smaller, private airports, meaning they can avoid both the public and paparazzi.
The Pitfalls of Public Transportation
Given that Star is often jet-setting around the world, it makes sense for Jeffree and his entourage to fly by private jet as often as possible. In fact, during a recent commercial flight, Jeffree Star experienced one of the oft-complained-about travel issues when the airline lost his luggage.
However, unlike most travelers, Jeffree Star had a $60,000 Birkin bag in his suitcase, which became an issue when the airline failed to locate his luggage for three days. Ultimately the luggage and Birkin were recovered, with Star taking to Twitter to talk about the snafu and telling a fan he was working on buying his own jet in 2020.
Life of Luxury
In the meantime, Star likes to spend his cash on real estate, recently buying a mansion he calls his “dream home” for $14.6 million. He also likes to invest in pricey cars and designer clothes, so much so that he built what is known as “The Pink Vault,” a closet made of bulletproof stainless steel with James Bond-levels of security, including a fingerprint and retina scanner, and round-the clock-bodyguards.
Not only that, but Star often travels to exotic locales, even going so far as to charter a private plane in order to shoot a video for his YouTube channel about what it’s like to get ready on a private jet.

Though Star does not yet own a private plane, it’s clear he intends to one day. Given his wealth and how often he travels, don’t be surprised if snapshots of his own private jet appear on social media in the future. In fact, he’ll likely give a video tour of it when he does.
