  • James Charles merch store, Sisters Apparel no longer appears to be online.
  • Sisters Apparel is distributed by Jeffree Star's company, Killer Merch.

Unless you've been living in outer space for the past few days, chances are, you'll have heard about all the James Charles drama that's been going down. It's been kinda hard to miss, right? Well, it seems like the scandal isn't dying down any time soon - despite both Shane Dawson and Tati Westbrook asking for people not to "grab onto hate" or "celebrate pain". Nope, it now looks like James' beauty empire could be crumbling down, and Twitter seems to think Jeffree Star is involved.

Throughout all the drama, Jeffree has remained 100% on Tati's side, even posting a tweet describing James as a 'danger to society'. Now, it appears that James' online site for his merch line, Sisters Apparel, has been shut down, and fans have assumed it's because the brand is distributed by Jeffree Star's company, Killer Merch.

Not only is the Sisters Apparel site no longer online, but in the past few hours the brand has also been removed the brand from Killer Merch's list of official 'Partners'.

Jeffree Star has yet to comment publicly on why Sisters Apparel has been shut down, but the people of Twitter seem to think it's a clear move to end his working relationship with James Charles.

It's been whirlwind of drama for James over the past few days, and it started when when fellow YouTuber, Tati Westbrook, uploaded a scathing 45 min video detailing why she's 'ending her friendship' with the 19-year-old.

In the video, Tati explained that she felt "really used", she went on to share how both her and her husband have helped James countless times throughout the years - particularly when he was starting out in the industry. However, despite being close friends for years, she no longer wants to be associated with him.

“There is so much going on with James Charles right now that I don’t agree with. Fame, power and a fat bank account will change almost anyone and if you don’t have people that will tell you to your face that you’re doing the wrong things, you will change.

"I tried to be that person for you James, I really tried. I don’t think there’s any getting through to you and I don’t want to be friends with you, I don’t want to be associated with you and I need to say that very publicly so that this chapter can just be closed.”

James has reportedly been in hiding for the past few days, after losing millions of followers. However, he did post a video apologising to Tati for his behaviour, which has now had over 43 million views.
