James Charles is not going down without a fight.
The YouTuber posted a new video over the weekend just about two weeks after his very public feud with beauty vlogger Tati Westbrook went viral.
The 19-year-old said said in his 41-minute video that this was the last time he'd talk about it.
James even went so far as to thank Tati and fellow YouTube celeb Jeffree Star for "taking some of the responsibility for blowing this whole thing up and for starting everything."
Many parts of James' video are his direct response to clips from Tati's first video, "Bye Sister," where she makes comments about their relationship and what led to their friend breakup.
Here are a few things we took from James' video (in case you don't have a spare, you know, FOURTY MINUTES to watch it).
At Coachella Weekend 1, he had a falling out with a boy he had said he been talking to for five months. He had an "artist pass" to the show — which cannot be bought. It's above just VIP, which the public can buy.
At Weekend 2, because he and his friends decided to go last minute, he only could get a VIP pass. So when he was there, he was being mobbed by people and said it was "not safe."
He then reached out to his friend, YouTuber Nikita, who he knew was completely taken care of by Sugar Bear Hair. He asked her if she could ask them to get him a pass. She reached out to the brand (Tati's competitor). "Despite what Tati said, this was not a big scheme that orchestrated beforehand," he said.
He said he did, in fact, reach out to Tati and explain the situation — and it wasn't 9 days later like she claimed.
2. James said he did promote Tati's products (she said in her video he didn't) and showed screenshots
3. James responded to Tati saying he manipulates straight men
James said, "I am a 19-year-old virgin. I have never and will never use my fame, money, or my power to manipulate or get any sexual actions from a guy. That is disgusting. That is not me. The fact that Tati brought this up blows my mind."
He said at Tati's birthday dinner, the conversation never got inappropriate. He said the "I'm a celebrity" quote that Tati claimed James said about the waiter was an inside joke between him and his friends, and that Tati even participated in it (shown in texts). He said he uses the word "famous" to describe anything that's good.
4. The Waiter
James said the waiter from the dinner slid into his DMs and even said he was bisexual, refuting Tati's claim that he tries to trick straight men.
He also showed texts of him inviting Sam, the waiter, over to his hotel room and emphasized that he messaged him, "You don't have to do anything [sexual]," when Sam expressed he was nervous.
James said after watching a movie, he and Sam made out. Both Sam and James said that James asked first and Sam said yes. Everything that happened in that hotel room was 100% consensual," James said.
James said he and Sam talked a lot about his sexuality, and it wavered a lot. James said Sam always asked for his input, which is why James said, "You're not straight no matter how many times you tell yourself" in a DM screenshot that Sam shared. The remark was heavily criticized.
5. Zara Larsson
James then addressed Zara Larsson, who tweeted that James DMed her boyfriend, not knowing he was dating her. He said it was hypocritical and fed into stereotypes around gay men, considering Zara tweeted this (below) to reach out to her boyfriend initially, while James privately complimented him.
6. Jeffree Star
After Jeffree tweeted something shady, James reached out to see if they were OK. Jeffree said the tweet wasn't about James. James later received another text, saying they needed to talk. James reached back out, but Jeffree was unavailable.
James had just received this text from Jeffree. The text referenced Sam (the waiter) and Zach, who is Jeffree's boyfriend Nate's brother. Jeffree said James tried to force him to "send him photos."
"Zach and I talked on Snapchat for a total of 10 selfies. It was very clear to me that he was not interested. The conversation stopped before anything could get remotely flirty."
James received a text from Jeffree, saying Grayson Dolan would be going on camera to "tell the world how you tried to molest him and touch him in his sleep." However, James said he knew Jeffree was lying because the twins were two of the first people to call him and make sure he was OK. He also said the flirting between James and the twins was collaborative and pre-planned for the videos.
James wrapped up the video by saying that Tati, her husband, and Jeffree have reached out, hoping to meet. But James declined. "All I've wanted was communication. I tried really, really hard to get that, and I didn't. So, I declined the meetings. This was started publicly and it was addressed publicly."
