Tati Westbrook Says She's Taking a Break From YouTube Amid James Charles Feud
Tati Westbrook cries in her latest YouTube video addressing the ongoing saga between her and her former protege James Charles.
"All of this has been bigger than anyone could have ever imagined," Westbrook says in the new video titled "Why I Did it ..."
The 18-minute monologue comes six days after her “BYE SISTER …” video, which first ignited the controversy. In that video, which has been viewed more than 47 million times, Westbrook explained her reasons for pulling the plug on her relationship with Charles.
"My relationship with James Charles is not transactional. I have not asked him for a penny. I have never been on his Instagram," Westbrook said in that video. "It was about being lied to and feeling disrespected."
She went on to discuss his immaturity and alleged behavior toward men who were not heeding his sexual advances.
"You tried to trick a straight man into thinking he’s gay yet again and somehow, you’re the victim? It’s really disgusting to manipulate someone’s sexuality," Westbrook said. "You are using your fame, your power, your money to play with peoples’ emotions."
Charles in turn responded with his own video.
"To Tati and James Westbrook [Tati's husband], I’m sorry for everything that is going on and everything that I’ve put you through over the past few weeks," he says.
He hasn't addressed Westbrook's latest video, however.
In the most recent video, Westbrook also reveals she plans to take a break from filming new episodes. The ones that will go up were already recorded.
She added that she hopes Charles takes a break too.
