James opens up about how bad his mental health got following the reaction on social media.

James Charles has responded to Tati Westbrook's 'Bye Sister' video with a 40-minute video titled 'No More Lies'.

Giving a detailed recount of the timeline, from the Coachella drama to the fall out after Tati's first video, James pulls up receipts on every point that Tati made. He also responds to the allegations made against him, posts screenshots from messages Jeffree Star sent him and also calls out Zara Larsson for her now-deleted viral tweet in which she claimed James had slid into her boyfriends DMs.

James also discusses his own mental health was severly affected by Tati's video and the intense reaction on social media.

"The last few weeks of my life have been the most painful time I have ever had to deal with, and my head and brain for a hot minute went to a place so dark I didn’t think I would come back, and that… I can’t believe I just admitted that on camera," he says.

"People always say being a social media influencer is an easy job… but I don’t think any human being ever is prepared to deal with the pain and anxiety of what it feels like for millions of people to be talking to you at one time."

A few hours after uploading the video, James tweeted:
