"My opinion? He's gonna go off, guys. I don't think he will hold back."
In another explosive video that has shook the YouTube beauty community, Tati Westbrook has decided to set the record straight on her now infamous falling out with James Charles.
After revealing that she had apologised to James in private and that the two were repairing their friendship, Tati has now claimed in a new video that she allowed herself to be gaslit and manipulated by Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson into making the video about James back in 2019.
Shane responded to Tati's 'Breaking My Silence...' video yesterday (June 30) in an Instagram Live which he's already facing backlash for. Shane's fiancé Ryland Adams also tweeted in response shortly after the video was set live.
Jeffree, however, is yet to respond. In her video, Tati pre-warned fans that if Jeffree does respond, people should "be prepared to understand that we need to forgive the people that he is holding hostage with veiled threats of exposure."
Touching on "Dramageddon 1" that involved Gabriel Zamora, Manny MUA, Nikita Dragun and Laura Lee, Tati explains that that situation should have been a red flag to her when it came to Jeffree.
In the new video, Tati says that, based on what he had previously told her, she believes that Jeffree has blackmail material on multiple members of the beauty community.
"One thing that he did that did concern me a lot was how he would frequently comment about how much dirt he held on other brand owners and members of our YouTube community," she explains. "I believe that he actually held blackmail material on many people and was capable of destroying the entire community. This worried me about him and I stayed and tried my best to be a positive influence."
Tati then warns viewers that Jeffree might "go off" if he chooses to respond to the comments, and urges people to think twice about cancelling anyone.
"My opinion? He's gonna go off, guys. And I don't think anyone– I don't think he will hold back," she said. "And I think we need to be prepared to understand that we need to forgive the people that he is holding hostage with veiled threats of exposure. We need to be prepared to forgive them. Otherwise this won't stop."
Tati continued: "So prepare to not cancel everyone and give them a chance. It's not right to try to trap people into saying things that they wouldn't otherwise say. It's not right."
At time of publication, Jeffree has yet to respond to Tati's video or comments. This post will be updated if he does.
