There’s no stopping him! It looks like James Charles is still going on his tour, despite losing millions of followers and YouTube subscribers over his public fallout with former friend Tati Westbrook.
The Sisters tour, which kicks off in late June, is made up of 24 dates around the U.S. According to TMZ, six of the venues have confirmed that the 19-year-old will be still be hosting the shows amid the feud.
On Friday May 10, Tati, 37, posted a 43-minute video titled “BYE SISTER,” in which she shared details of how James betrayed her. It all started around Coachella when James began promoting SugarBearHair on his Instagram, which happens to be the main competitor of his former mentor’s vitamin brand.
Since then, the makeup guru responded in an eight-minute apology video titled “tati.” “To Tati and James Westbrook, I’m sorry for everything that is going on, everything that I’ve put you through over the past few weeks,” he said in the beginning of the video. He then described his relationship with the couple. “Her and her husband have given me so much love and advice and opportunities and a play to stay, a shoulder to cry on at three in the morning and support when no one else would or wanted to,” he continued. “I’m so disappointed in myself that I ruined our relationship that did mean so much to me, even if I didn’t do the best job of of showing it all the time.”
James also stated that the biggest downside of his mistake is that there’s not much he can do to “earn that friendship and trust back,” and many fans seems to agree. The beauty vlogger has had his fair share of controversies in the past, however, this is the first time his following has become deeply affected. In the course of a five days, the makeup guru has lost roughly three million subscribers.
Something tells us this is going to be an interesting tour.
