James Charles has threatened to call the police on fans who keep turning up at his house for selfies
Writing on his Twitter, Charles asked fans to: "Please stop showing up at my house. I will not hug you, I will not take a photo with you, and I absolutely will not sign your palette. It is extremely disrespectful & makes me feel very unsafe in my own home. Respect people’s privacy, it’s really not that hard."
So many fans have been turning up, it has even delayed filming for a new video. "I am so annoyed. I was supposed to be done filming hours ago and now I can’t even focus."

That is truly sister scary.
Charles moved to his new home back in September and showed fans round the inside via a house tour video. The 5-bedroom property is in LA and comes complete with a swimming pool and hot tub. In the video, Charles talked about his plans to buy a grand piano and build a music studio downstairs. He didn't, however, reveal the location of his house or show what it looked like from the outside. It would seem the location of the house must have leaked online.
Charles followed up his tweets with a Snapchat video yesterday (Dec 16) and explained in more detail what has been going on.
In the snap, Charles claims that fans have been ringing his door relentlessly and parents have been driving their kids to his house in the hope of getting an autograph or photo with the beauty YouTuber. James is having none of it though.
"If I see you in public, I would love to give you a hug, I would love to take a selfie with you, I would love to thank you for support for me", he says. "I would love to sign your palette if you happen to have it or your sister apparel hoodie, or send a video to your friend but NOT on my front porch. Please leave me in peace. Leave my family in peace and respect people's privacy. It's really not that hard."
James also added he will be calling the police if fans continue to harass him at his home. Let's hope that puts off anymore unwanted visitors.
