James Charles Responds to Claims That He Groomed a 16-Year-Old

James Charles is responding to allegations that he groomed a 16-year-old boy.

The 21-year-old YouTube star and beauty mogul revealed in a statement posted to Twitter that he started talking to someone who told him that he was 18. After some flirtation, James discovered the guy was actually 16 and then cut off communication with him because he was uncomfortable with the situation.

“There’s a video going around about me on TikTok and Twitter of a guy calling me a groomer and I want to address it right away. The accusation that I have groomed this person is completely false,” James said.

He continued, “Last week, I came across someone on my Instagram explore page, saw he followed me, and added him on Snapchat. The next morning, I woke up to several snaps from this person being excited I added him back, saying he loved me, and also lewd photos of himself in the shower. I asked how old he was right away and he told me he was 18 so I started flirting back.”
