Kylie Jenner & Kim Kardashian Among Celebrities Who Unfollowed James Charles Amid Drama – Perez Hilton
Tati Westbrook isn’t the only one saying “BYE SISTER” to James Charles!
As his YouTube subscriber count
ICYMI, the former friends began feuding last month after James shared an endorsement for Sleep Vitamins by SugarBearHair at Coachella, a direct competitor of Westbrook’s brand Halo Beauty.
In a 43-minute video posted on Friday,Tati opened up about feeling disrespected by her wedding makeup artist:
“It wasn’t just about vitamins or Halo, it was just about being lied to and feeling disrespected… And you know, James Charles had nine days after Coachella to talk to me. He knows where I live, it’s not far from him. He could’ve come face-to-face and chatted with me because he knew this would hurt me.”
She continues, explaining how she and her husband (ironically, his name is James as well), have been second parents for him since he moved to El Lay, providing a range of moral support and business advice.
The 37-year-old also addressed Charles’ other recent problems, including his alleged romantic pursuit of straight men:
“It’s really disgusting to manipulate someone’s sexuality, especially when they are still emerging into adulthood, and don’t quite have everything figured out… You are using your fame, your power, your money to play with peoples emotions. You’re threatening to ruin them, you’re threatening to embarrass them and you’re doing that to have them behave sexually in your favor, even if they’re straight. And you know what? That’s not okay. That behavior is not okay.”
He posted an apology video to his channel, admitting to being “disappointed” in himself having “ruined” their relationship, but there are more than a few celebrities who have hit the unfollow button regardless of his apology…
Sisters aren’t forever after all! James collaborated with the Kylie Cosmetics founder in October, but she hit the unfollow button REAL quick after things began unfolding over the weekend.
Kim Kardashian West
Just as her little sis did, so did the 38-year-old KKW Beauty founder. Guess he won’t be on these PR lists anymore!
Many were taken aback by the friendship between the problematic YouTuber and Confident singer… safe to say it no longer exists!

Jeffree Star has given absolutely zero f**ks sharing who he is siding with in the debacle, congratulating Tati on her growing subscriber count on Twitter and calling out Charles as a “danger to society.”
Since posting her video on Friday, she has gained over three million new subscribers on the video platform, but announced early Monday morning she would not be posting her usual 10 a.m. video:
There won't be a video tomorrow. My heart is still too heavy. I feel like I need to remind you that we can hold truth & inspire change without grabbing onto hate. Honor your blessings, don't abuse them. Celebrating pain will only bring it to your door. love you guys, see you soon

Once fellow Cover Girl ambassadors and friends… no more!
The two collaborated for a makeup look just two months ago, but she’s no longer a follower.
In her explosive video, Miz Westbrook opens up about recently hanging out with Shane Dawson, who boasts 21 million subscribers on YT, so it’s pretty safe to assume where he stands in the matter.

I was trying to think of a funny caption but nothing seems right because of what this person means to me. Tati is someone who I’ve known about for years but who I just started really watching in the last few months because of my research on the beauty world. Since watching her I’ve had this insane connection to her and her videos have helped me so much, not just with makeup but with my anxiety and with my stress. I’ve had a lot of hard things happen in the last few months and being able to turn on one of her videos at night and hear her calming voice has been really healing for me. Tati, thank you for everything you do and thank you for being just as beautiful on the inside as you are on the out. Meeting you was something I will never forget. Love you :,) ❤️
He also continued to boast about Tati, supporting her Halo Beauty vitamins brand on Twitter:

Other A-listers who have joined the unfollowing spree include Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, and Shawn Mendes, while celebs including Zendaya and Gigi Hadid still follow James, but we assume it won’t be for much longer…
Maybe him and Olivia Jade should start a fallen from guru grace club?
