“Just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in!”
Do you think james charles is a Godfather fan? This week, the controversial influencer finally broke his own social media silence to address a new set of allegations against him. Why else would James Charles trend on Twitter these days?
Although this time the allegations against the beauty YouTuber do not include anything related to sexual advances towards minors, they are still very damaging. Certainly it is quite damaging for James Charles to come back to Twitter to defend himself. So what happened?
James Charles’ latest headache comes courtesy of one of his former employees, Kelly Rocklyn. Rocklin worked for Charles for about six months as a producer and creative director in 2018. During that time, according to Rocklyn, she was overworked, underpaid and overall abused by the popular YouTube personality. And we’ll be hearing about it right now, but Rocklyn sued about it two years ago.
As reported by Insider, Kelly Rocklyn’s lawsuit against James Charles alleges wrongful termination, disability discrimination, failure to provide reasonable accommodation, and failure to pay minimum wages for overtime worked. Of course, this is just the legal side of it. It also has juicy, gossip content shared by Rocklyn Insider Interview.
Kelly Rocklyn’s accusations portray James Charles as a slogan who would have done nothing if she hadn’t been able to get him out of bed, force him to brush his teeth, and keep her on a schedule. Forced. Oh, and he preferred to leave the abuses like they were going out of style.

Imminent release of Insider The interview prompted James Charles to briefly return to Twitter to give a pre-emptive response to the article. You can say that an attempt to wipe all the fallen tea. The resulting seven-minute video shows Charles explicitly refuting Rocklin’s allegations, as well as giving his side of the story. You can watch the video above, but we’ll give you the highlight.
The main thing James Charles wants you to know in this Twitter video is how disgusted he is by Kelly Rocklyn Insider Interview. YouTuber accuses his former employee of attempting to blackmail him, and makes too much of what he accuses. Charles also shared his frustration with having to deal with the lawsuit two years before and how it would not end soon.
The popular influencer admits that he can settle down and overcome it all, but he refuses to do so. In the Twitter video, James Charles outlines his determination not to pay anyone for his silence, even though he is aware that now that the fight has entered the “court of public opinion”, he is at a major disadvantage . Well, whose fault is it, James?

Speaking of the Court of Public Opinion, James Charles has revealed another point in his Twitter video that Kelly Rocklyn has waited two years to go public. In response, Rocklyn’s lawyer said Insider That Charles’ legal team should be convicted for the amount of time it took to try to force him to mediate in the case, and how long it would go to trial to appeal if the court refused arbitration.
It does not explain exactly why Rocklyn will wait to go public by now, although it is easy to see why she wants to hit YouTuber when she is down. Recent scandals involving suspicious behavior around minors have weakened James Charles in a way he had not been before. If Rocklin’s strategy is to settle Charles, then 2021 was certainly a good time to give it a shot.
2021 has already seen another YouTuber settle Kelly Rocklyn’s lawsuit. Sports worm Reports that before working for James Charles, Rocklyn worked as a creative director and producer for Erica Costell – a member of Jake Paul’s “Team 10”. Costell found himself at the end of a lawsuit from Rocklin for failure to pay wages, but, unlike Charles, settled earlier this year.
For all his faults and potential crimes, James Charles is certainly right about one thing he said in his Twitter video: In public opinion, he is unlikely to win. But right now he can’t do much to change it. What do you think Tell us in the comments!
