|About Ian Jeffrey|
|Known As||Ian Jeffrey Dickinson|
|Birth||December 17, 2001|
|Alumni||Bethlehem Central High School|
Ian Jeffrey Resides in New York
Born Ian Dickinson to Christie Dickinson and her husband on December 17, 2001, he’s a native of New York. Both Ian and James were raised in Bethlehem, New York.
Ian is a student at Bethlehem Central High School, where James graduated in 2017. While James is a notable alumni of the school where he used to test his makeup chops on classmates, Ian played football for the school’s team.
Jeffrey Featured on James Charles’ Channel
As the first male to be signed as the new face of Covergirl, James Charles often traveled between Los Angeles, where he worked, and New York, where his home was. Now Charles is based in Los Angeles, though the family comes together to celebrate major events in his career.
Ian also visits his brother in California and during one such visit, he featured in Charles’ 2017 video, “Little Brother Does My Makeup.” The result? Ian is not as good at makeup as Charles.
In 2018, Charles tested Ian to see if he knew his makeup routine in the video, “Little Brother Buys My Makeup.” Sadly, Ian didn’t exactly nail it.
Nonetheless, being featured on Charles’ channel brought attention Ian’s way. Back home in New York, Ian has a comparatively modest influencer career with over 870K YouTube subscribers and 2.2 million Instagram followers.
Jeffrey Dated Loren Gray
In late 2018, the rumor mill was buzzing with speculation that Ian Jeffrey was dating Musical.ly and YouTube singing sensation Loren Gray. Ian would confirm the rumors via an Instagram post a day after Christmas.

Jeffrey and Jeffree Star Had a Spat Over Charles’ Controversy
Even if you don’t follow them, you’re probably caught up with the Tati-James Charles controversy that has upturned the YouTube beauty community. Considering a good section of the Internet and its fan-created celebrities has turned against Charles, it’s no surprise that Ian would have something to say.
ICYMI, Jeffree Star has been going all out #TeamTati in this dramatic falling-out. In a since-deleted tweet, Star also referred to Charles as a “danger to society.”
In response to all the negativity his brother is getting, Ian tweeted: “Why does everyone act so tough on the internet?” This was interpreted as a move to defend Charles, and the Twitterverse had a lot to say about that.

But it was Jeffree Star’s response to Ian that started a fresh wave of drama. “Why is your brother a predator?? Why’d you really move back to NYC? Exactly. Shut the f**k up,” Star tweeted.
Both Jeffrey and Star received backlash, with Star particularly getting heat for dragging Charles’ brother into this mess when he had nothing to do with it. Jeffrey and Star have since deleted their tweets.
Both Charles and Jeffrey have gone silent on social media since the debacle.
