Tati Westbrook Says She Was Weaponized In The Scheme To Bring Down James Charles by Jeffree Star & Shane Dawson

Tati Westbrook Says She Was Weaponized In The Scheme To Bring Down James Charles by Jeffree Star & Shane Dawson

Tati Westbrook is breaking her silence about the truth behind Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson‘s manipulation scheme that erupted last year when they came after James Charles.

The YouTuber, who took time away from the platform after the drama, explains that she was used in their scheme to accuse James of being a danger to society.

Tati says that she was weaponized and used against James in their scheme.

“On the advice of my attorneys I cannot share with all of you right now the evidence that we have accumulated of the events that have occurred however there will soon come a day where we will be able to present this evidence and you will be able to see why it is we believe that Jeffree and Shane are responsible for so much of the damage that has been caused,” she says.

Tati continued, “I can tell you this it’s now my opinion that Jeffrey and Shane were both bitterly jealous of James Charles’s success Jeffree resented that so much of his business was centered around his biggest rival and Shane did not like that James Charles wanted to make a documentary.”

“Neither of them were happy with standing in his shadow on YouTube anymore. I believe James Charles was gaining more followers and receiving more views and more press faster than anyone in the history on the platform and it’s also my opinion that Jeffrey and Shane needed James marginalized and out of the way for their November launch of the conspiracy palette along with Shane’s merch,” Tati adds. “I’ve also recently been informed that Jeffree is allegedly a co-owner of Morphe before the scandal occurred I had also been told that James Charles was about to develop an entire cosmetics line with the owners of Morphe.”

“The entire situation opens up a Pandora’s box of speculation but I’m just not sure anyone counted on this drama spreading like wildfire. It’s my opinion that everyone involved got scared and their plan changed multiple times as I refused to play along or engage with the drama over the next several months a year later,” she says. “It is now my opinion that James Charles was not their only intended target I believe that there are many different people who have unclean hands in all of this and there was a coordinated plan to keep me quiet and pushed me out of the way for other business reasons.”
