James Charles Responded to Grooming Allegations made by Isaiyah
James Charles is denying accusations he’s grooming a 16-year-old boy … he claims the person making the accusation told him he was 18 before they started flirting over social media.
James just addressed the video making the rounds on social media where a boy claims James Charles is “grooming” him. His accuser claims James sent him sexually-explicit messages and pictures on Snapchat.
James Charles says the boy sent him lewd photos first, and he didn’t start “flirting back” until the kid told him he was 18.
In hindsight, James says he shoulda confirmed the boy’s age before flirting with him. JC says their conversation led him to realize the kid was way younger than he allegedly claimed, and that’s when James says he ended the virtual interaction.
James says he’s not victim-blaming but just says he’s sharing his side of the story … and he claims he’s learned a valuable lesson.
After the grooming allegations made by Isaiyah, James Charles shared his response in a note on Twitter. Jamed Charles said in his statement:
“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. 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. In the excitement of meeting someone I thought could be potentially great, I didn’t ask for a copy of his ID or passport. It’s now clear, based on the video he uploaded, he was taking photos of me with another device, and had an ulterior motive from the beginning. Later in the day, he said a few things that made me question the validity of his original age answer and when I asked him to confirm his age once again, he admitted he was 16. I told him I was really uncomfortable and apologized for flirting, but he insisted on continuing talking, saying it could be our little secret, he’s a fan of mine and would never tell anyone. I told him I wasn’t okay with this, he started getting upset, and at this point, I unfriended him. We haven’t spoken since. I’m not victim blaming him or victimizing myself either, simply sharing what happened, and what happened was not okay. After false allegations like this in the past, I would never knowingly engage with anyone underage and put my life on the line for a few snapchats. Because of situations like this, instead of taking someone’s word for it, I now will ask to see the ID or passport of every guy I have a conversation with.”
James Charles was accused of grooming Charli D’amelio in the past also.
