• He started experimenting with make-up in his youth and began wearing it in public in 2014.
• He has been feuding with YouTube personality Jeffree Star since 2018.
• He has been accused of making derogatory comments and hosting fake giveaways and contests.
• He is in a relationship with a man named Kevin.

Who is Thomas Halbert?

Thomas Halbert was born on 20 March 1997, in North Carolina, USA, and is a YouTube personality as well as a make-up artist, best known for his self-titled YouTube channel. He does make-up tutorials and videos on his channel, marketed as makeup that can be done for both men and women. He’s also attracted a lot of controversy for his issues with YouTube personality Jeffree Star.

The Wealth of Thomas Halbert

As of early-2020, Thomas Halbert’s net worth is estimated to be over $100,000, earned through a successful career on YouTube.

His online fame has helped him gain a lot of advertising revenue with the main source being his YouTube channel. He’s also gained sponsorships and endorsements from a few companies.

Early Life and Career Beginnings

Thomas lived relatively out of the spotlight for most of his youth – but he became fascinated with make-up. He experimented with it a lot during these years, though he was never confident in wearing make-up in public until around 2014. He developed his skills, mostly with the help of accessible tutorials such as YouTube videos, started gaining confidence, and began wearing make-up in public.

Around the same time, he began establishing himself on social media platforms such as Instagram and YouTube on which many make-up gurus have found success, ouTube in particular, helping to even launch the careers of several, turning them into stars of the industry. He wanted to achieve the same feat and began posting regularly on the site, and his channel grew steadily, posting more tutorials and tips. He started an advocacy channel for the minorities, and was leaning towards helping keep people together, especially those being victims of bullying.

Jeffree Star

Jeffree Star was one of the first male personalities to become a beauty and make-up guru on YouTube, though this wasn’t the case at first. He initially wanted to start a music career, and began promoting his music through the website MySpace. This led him to a recording contract and he soon launched his debut studio album called “Beauty Killer”, but which is his only album to date. The album featured performances from Nicki Minaj and during this peak of his music career, he was labeled as the next Lady Gaga. However, following numerous legal issues with his management Akon, he abruptly decided to leave this career.

In 2014, he started a channel on YouTube, and turned a different direction entirely. He started the company Jeffree Star Cosmetics, and began promoting his products through his channel. He quickly became a star on the platform, being one of the first male personalities to handle make-up. “Forbes” later reported that he was earning millions through YouTube alone, and this didn’t even include his direct business earnings. In 2018, he was named as the fifth highest-earning YouTube personality. Apart from his makeup skills, Jeffree is known for feuding with other YouTubers and celebrities, being vocal about his opinions about them.

Thomas’ Feud with Jeffree Star

Thomas has been at odds with Jeffree for a long time, though the basic reason for it has never been admitted. Many of his followers started noticing that he disliked the Jeffree Cosmetics products during a video in which he declared that he did not use products from a lot of companies. He even went on air stating that he would never use any of Jeffree Stars’ products.

Then, oddly enough, in the next video he began using Jeffree Star’s name by posting a video about him, following one of Star’s make-up videos.

This series of videos about Star would prove to be his most popular, not because of his make-up ability, but rather the story behind it. In these videos, he often makes unnecessary remarks about Jeffree’s physical appearance, and also mocks his way of doing make-up. That along with insults towards his products made it seem like he hated the guru. It didn’t take long for other people to notice how he seemed insensitive, insincere, and a generally negative person. A lot of his critics started attacking him for being a bully, when he was supposedly advocating for bullying to end.

The Feud Continues

Following issues of racism and derogatory comments towards minorities, Jeffree Star was in a lot of heat online. These issues even led to him ending all association with several YouTube make-up artists he had been collaborating with for a long time. Halbert took advantage of this period to talk about issues of racism and sexism. While he didn’t mention Star directly, a lot of his statements implied that he was talking about the other YouTuber.

As typical of Star, he didn’t let this one slide, as he began posting online through Twitter about the truth behind the video. It turns out that just a few days prior, Halbert approached Star to supposedly fix things between them.

They talked it out and forgave each other, even making clarifications, explaining each other’s sides. Now that he looked back on it, it seemed curious that Halbert was looking for more information regarding the racism issue. Nevertheless, it was opened-up, and now the information was used against him. Star then posted text conversations between himself and Halbert, with the other supposedly apologizing for the video he released. He later released a follow-up video apologizing once more for his actions, though a lot of people felt that it was insincere, and he didn’t even address Jeffree directly.

Personal Life

It is known that Thomas is in a relationship with a man named Kevin. The two have posted photos together, wearing make-up or showcasing a public display of affection. He doesn’t talk about his family openly and the most that people know is that he has a brother. He has been labeled by a lot of people as bizarre, often posting condescending tweets before deleting them an hour later. He’s also been accused of hosting fake giveaways and contests to gain additional subscribers – he’s failed to respond properly once the issue was pointed out by one of the contestants, and he tried avoiding the issue altogether.

All About Colleen Ballinger’s Ex-Husband – Joshua David Evans

Published

on

Who is Joshua David Evans?

Joshua David Evans was born on 5 April 1984, in Macon, Georgia, USA, and is a YouTube personality, best known for his JoshuaDTV, which serves as a vlog channel. He posts videos on challenges, social issues, music, and many others. He rose to fame in the early 2010s, following his relationship and marriage to internet sensation Colleen Ballinger. The fallout from that marriage proved to be controversial, though his popularity remained.

The Riches of Joshua David Evans

As of early-2020, Joshua David Evans has a net worth estimated to be over $500,000, earned largely through a successful career on YouTube.

Apart from his online work, he’s also pursuing a career in music as the lead vocalist of the band Cat’s Pajamas, and a member of the YouTube boy band The Shadows, alongside Julien Solomita and Arnold Telegaarta in the band.

Early Life and Career Beginnings

Joshua David grew up the middle of three children, raised by their parents in Macon; at a young age, he aspired to pursue a career in the music industry. After matriculating from high school, he enrolled at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA), located in New York and Los Angeles, and known for its specialization in the fields of the performing arts.

After completing his education, Joshua then formed the band Cat’s Pajamas, a musical project that never really took off. In 2008, he discovered the website YouTube which at around the time was just starting to gain popularity online. The website is now one of the highest-traffic sites on the internet, which allows users to share videos with the public which can be viewed, rated, commented on, and more. The website allows users to earn advertising revenue through views and interactions with each video. The success of YouTube and the subsequent success of many of its content creators, known as YouTubers, has helped in building today’s internet culture.

Creating Content and Colleen Ballinger

Initially, Evans’ online content focused more on comedic performances, doing comedy sketch performances and various vids for the entertainment of his few followers. As his popularity grew, he started to give updates on his life and showcased it through vlogs. He also used the platform to share his music, posting covers of several popular songs at the time.

What elevated his online status was when he met a more popular YouTube Colleen Ballinger. The couple met in 2009, but it wasn’t until three years later that the two hit it off.

Colleen became popular through the creation of the online character Miranda Sings, which would eventually become a one-woman comedy act as she toured around the world. Miranda is a satire of YouTubers who don’t have singing talent, but post videos online in hopes of making it big in show business. She is depicted as talentless, eccentric and egotistical. The character’s fame grew so much that Ballinger produced a Netflix series called “Haters Back Off”, which continued to build on her reputation in comedy and acting. The show focused on the origins and family life of Miranda.

Relationship and Rise to Fame

After Joshua David and Colleen began dating in 2012, his popularity surged. His viewer count and fan base grew exponentially after the couple made their relationship public. In response to all of this attention, he began posting content daily as a vlogger, due to a lot of his followers being interested in Colleen’s life behind the scenes.

Soon the couple became an example of an apparently ideal couple or a relationship goal, with their photos, blogs, and seemingly happy relationship envied by many of their fans. Joshua’s increasing online fame also led him to become acquainted with other YouTubers, resulting in the creation of The Shadows, and their sole single “Vlog with Me”.

He also used the platform to continue to promote his music. In 2015 the couple announced their engagement, and they married just a few months later in California. Many thought that it was the dream wedding and dream relationship they’d always wanted.

Fallout and Criticisms

After a year of marriage, Evans and Ballinger’s relationship quickly turned for the worst. The two couldn’t maintain their blissful relationship once they were married, and the couple announced that they were getting a divorce. Many of Ballinger’s followers quickly turned on Joshua, and sided with the more popular star. Evans received a lot of flak and negative comments, with some of his strongest haters bullying him online.

He received death threats as well as hurtful comments, and his mental health started spiraling. Under pressure, he released a video on YouTube that was later deleted, though some people still saved the video on their computers. In the video, he was supposedly going to talk about the truth, but it ended up to be ramblings of a very stressed man, lashing out on all of his haters, and blaming other YouTubers whom he says turned their back on him as soon as they broke up. He didn’t mention any names throughout the rant.

His actions didn’t help him either, as to maintain his strong view count, he started to post clickbait videos referencing his ex-wife, as if the two were still collaborating.

He was criticized for using the relationship to gain money, an accusation that rang throughout their relationship, though this time was heard by a much larger crowd.

Moving On

As months passed, Joshua David’s channel transitioned from hateful and desperate, to more accepting of the events that occurred to him. He began talking about his life with his viewers more openly, and expressing how difficult it was to go through a divorce, especially with a relationship that had lasted for some years. Colleen never talked about their relationship after their divorce, and focused on her growing career.

https://twitter.com/JoshuaDtown/status/1191901830235602945

In 2017, he reconnected with childhood friend Pamela Rodriguez, and the following year they became engaged, and married just a few months later. Ballinger, on the other hand, met actor Erik Stocklin while working on the show “Haters Back Off”. The two married after dating for nearly a year, and they have a child together.

Joshua David continues to post content, with many of his followers sympathetic with what he went through over the years. He now collaborates with his wife in many videos. He’s also released his debut extended play (EP) as a solo artist, called “Seasons”.
