Jeffree Star Has Ended The James Charles & Tati Westbrook Feud With A Single Video
Game of Thrones has ended, and so has the James Charles and Tati Westbrook feud. What a day.
In a single video, Jeffree Star has ended the controversy once and for all. If you need a recap: last week tension between YouTubers and ex-BFFs James Charles and Tati Westbook boiled over Tati posted a long video voicing her issues with him, which included allegations of predatory behaviour.
James has since released a video shutting down Tati’s accusations, including screenshots of messages to back himself up.
Which brings us to this weekend, when Jeffree Star teased even more tea in this never-ending saga. A since-deleted tweet said: “I have so much to say and some really sad, disgusting things to show you guys. James Charles tried to mass manipulate you all today. When I show you the proof and WHY I tweeted that tweet about him, you will all finally understand.”
Over the course of this scandal, Jeffree has been making some pretty serious allegations against James, so everyone who’s been following the drama has been eagerly awaiting this new chapter.
Except, the highly-anticipated video isn’t what anyone was expecting.
Instead of taking James down, Jeffree is stepping down and promises that he’s done spilling tea.
“I was going to pull voice memos, I was going to pull old text messages from other people that don’t want to be involved,” Jeffree explained. “Today, I will not be exposing anything more. This has to stop.”
Jeffree said that when he promised receipts in his original tweet, he was in a dark place and has decided to turn a new leaf. He also acknowledges that he shouldn’t have been publicly involved in the feud to begin with and that his tweets caused damage.
“I have been very outspoken, and sometimes I’ve spoken too much. I think this week was definitely one of those scenarios.”
“Before fully accusing an individual of doing anything, I need more facts.”
He promises that he’s done with the drama and won’t be getting involved in other people’s situations anymore.

It looks like his video inspired Tati, who posted a long speech on social media agreeing that she wants the drama to end.

Although she doesn’t regret raising concerns about James’ behaviour, she acknowledges that her video was the wrong way to bring them up, and calls for an end to the endless demands for receipts from everyone involved.
In a final ceasefire, James agreed to move on and promised that he wouldn’t talk about the controversy publicly anymore.
Thank you @jeffreestar & @glamlifeguru for your sentiments. I am on board to move on, will not speak about this further, but do hope to speak in the future when we’re all ready. This week was awful for all of us and I ask that the community focuses on positivity moving forward ❤️

So that’s it, folks! It looks like this whole drama has been put to bed. Obviously the three YouTubers still have things to work through, but it looks like that’ll all be handled behind closed doors from now on.

Hopefully that means everyone will go back to talking about makeup once and for all.
