YouTuber and beauty guru Tati Westbrook has come out with another video exposing the drama behind the apocalyptic scandal that surrounded James Charles in May 2019 due to her viral “Bye Sister” upload.

James Charles became the subject of internet vitriol last summer, after Westbrook’s video accused the then 19-year-old influencer of using his fame to manipulate the sexuality of straight men, among other accusations.

While other top entertainers like Jeffree Star came out with claims that Charles was a “danger to society,” the scandal seemed to end after Charles came forward with his own version of events shortly thereafter, seemingly debunking all of Westbrook’s claims.

A year later, social media circles have imploded with allegations against both Star and YouTuber Shane Dawson, with many accusing the two of orchestrating the entire fiasco surrounding Charles, as told per texts and voice messages to other influencers.

Now, Tati has released another bombshell video addressing the year-old topic, claiming that she was “gaslit” into releasing her “Bye Sister” exposé by both Star and Dawson.

“The information they were giving me was terrifying,” she said through tears. “I thought your career and freedom were in jeopardy. I was trying to get you to put your phone down and seek help, because I was told there were a lot of victims that were going to come forward to destroy you.”

Star’s now-deleted Tweet has become a viral topic regarding his allegations against James Charles.

Westbrook went on to state her concerns over the possibility of Star having “blackmail material” on various influencers, fearing that he is “capable of destroying the entire community” and warning the YouTube beauty scene against “canceling” anyone he might expose after her video was released.

She continued by stating that Star began to slander Charles “more than usual” in 2019, with the topic being “all he wanted to talk about.” Shane purportedly reached out to Tati shortly thereafter with similar allegations against the young influencer.

“Shane said that James Charles was a monster, and that James Charles was hurting minors,” Tati claimed. “Shane said he was planning to interview victims for the docuseries. He told me that something needed to be done to stop him from hurting more people.”

Westbrook likewise theorized that Shane and Star had wanted Charles “out of the way” for the November launch of their collaborative “Conspiracy” makeup line, and were taking measures to sideline the young makeup mogul out of jealousy.

Dawson has since reacted to Tati’s video, calling her allegations “a f**king lie,” and popping off on the subject in an Instagram Live stream.

“You are so manipulative!” Dawson shouted as Tati’s video played in the background. “You are fake crying!”

 

While James Charles and Jeffree Star have yet to speak out about the video at the time of writing, Tati also claimed that Charles had asked to be present during filming, but she had declined due to wanting to publicly apologize to him.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
