Kylie Jenner posted on social media saying that Samuel Rauda “isn’t my makeup artist and unfortunately we don’t have a personal relationship anymore.” Apparently, Samuel Rauda has been working as Kylie Jenner‘s makeup artist for over 6 years as confirmed via his Instagram.

“I saw my current makeup artist and friend Ariel post about Sam’s accident and his family’s gofundme… it compelled me to visit his gofundme which was set at 10K,” Jenner wrote. “They had already raised 6k so I put it in 5k to reach their original goal.”

Jenner said she shared the fundraising campaign “on my stories to gain more awareness if anyone also felt compelled to share or donate,” adding that she does  “things from the heart and I try to be helpful whenever I can be.”

“I don’t know how all of this got so twisted but his family has reached out through Ariel and are very appreciative,” she said.
