In the event that you haven’t noticed—in which case I refuse to believe you even have an internet connection—there’s some major drama going on in the beauty vlogger world. I can explain but honestly, HOW LONG DO YOU HAVE?! In a nutshell, James Charles betrayed his friend Tati Westbrook by promoting a rival hair vitamin brand (wow, this totally happened to me once—not), and Tati got her revenge by exposing him in an almost hour-long YouTube video.
But wait, there’s more. Jeffree Star called James called a ‘danger to society,’ a bunch of iffy stuff came out about his personal life, and then he ended up losing millions of YouTube subscribers. All of this brouhaha directly impacts his career, his personal brand, and most importantly, his net worth. Here’s a breakdown of how much money James has made over his relatively short career, and how this clusterf*ck has the potential to make or break his bank account.
