JAMES CHARLES RETURNS TO SOCIAL MEDIA TO SLAM EX-EMPLOYEE’S LAWSUIT: “IT’S BLACKMAIL”

MORE DRAMA.

James Charles has broken his social media silence to respond to an ongoing lawsuit from his former video editor and producer.

The disgraced online star dubbed the move “blackmail” and said the entire thing is “untrue.”

Kelly Rocklein, a former employee is suing him for wrongful termination and poor treatment during her employment.

This person worked for me and was later promoted to my producer. She was my right-hand person for a salary of $72,000 a year. She only worked for me for about six months and was let go.

Although he could pay to make the claims “magically go away,” settling is not an option he wants to “pursue to the fullest extent of the law.”

In the meantime, he’ll “wait patiently and come back when the time is right,” presumably once the case has been dealt with.
