How much did James Charles house cost?
Charles’ gorgeous 4,255-square-foot, 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom home is estimated to be worth around $2.29 million. Needless to say, the home is absolutely gorgeous with one real estate site referring to it as a “Nantucket/Cape Cod masterpiece”.

It has an open floor plan, tons of natural light and comes complete with 10-foot-high ceilings, an office, a grand living room with a fireplace and baby grand piano, a formal dining room, a chef’s kitchen, and designer fixtures.

James Charles House Tour / James Charles House Decor
The interior vibe has a very fresh, polished, contemporary farmhouse feel to it. For starters, James kept with the black and white color scheme he had at his Downtown LA apartment. The streaming sensation teamed up with YouTuber and designer Mr. Kate and the two absolutely #killedit. The furniture is gorgeous and a mixture of designer pieces as well as items picked up from Target, Home Goods and IKEA.
Charles also filled the spaces with tons of typography posters that he printed out himself and framed which add a good amount of character and personality to the interior. Charles and his team loved the thought of a monochromatic feel for the interior decor and as a result, a lot of the decorative pieces are either white, black or a combination of the two colors. If you haven’t seen the video of James Charles’ house tour then you should totally check it out. The entire thing is about thirty minutes long, so you may want to block out some time to get your #heyjealousy on.
Why do people like James Charles so much?
I have to say that in my opinion, it’s pretty obvious why people flock to James Charles so much. I have a daughter who absolutely loves him and after I checked out a few of his videos I definitely developed a mini-obsession myself. He’s lovable, charismatic, spunky, gorgeous and the boy can beat a face as good as the rest of them.
I mean who doesn’t want to watch a 20-year-old living the high life, hanging out at the Met Gala looking fabtastic, doing Kylie Jenner’s Halloween makeup or see the outcome of a video titled “Full Face of Makeup Using Only Art Supplies”? I’ll tell you who does – 24 million people. That’s how many views just the last one received.
How much money does James Charles make from YouTube?
James Charles YouTube
According to the latest reports, the 19-year-old YouTube star is estimated to be worth a whopping $12 million. This is all from a combination of various sponsorships and collaborations, YouTube, merchandise and events that the famous personality hosts. For example, a recent Vogue article mentioned how one of his makeup tutorial and Q&A events cost attendees $500 for a front row seat. Keep in mind that this is all powered from his insanely popular YouTube channel which is what landed him his iconic CoverGirl deal and instantly thrust him into fame.
James Charles Merch
Charles also launched a merch line in 2018 by the name of Sisters Apparel which offers items such as sweatpants, hoodies, T-shirts, and accessories with his favorite tag line “Sisters”. In fact, you can often see the YouTube star wearing clothing items from his line in his own videos.
What happened between Tati Westbrook and James Charles?
Okay, so in case you aren’t familiar with the Tati and James Charles feud that essentially killed 18% of his audience, here it is. It all started one day when Tati Westbrook, a popular YouTube beauty personality (GlamLifeGuru) and former friend of Charles posted a lengthy video with the title “BYE SISTER” in which she basically vented all of her frustrations about a supposed friend of hers that had essentially done her dirty on numerous occasions. Needless to say, people quickly put two and two together and realized she was talking about Charles.
Perhaps the biggest frustration vented was the fact that even though Tati largely took Charles under her wing when he first moved to L.A., he has never gone out of his way to shout out to her brand or support her publicly. On the other hand, Tati has gone out of her way to do so with Charles and is largely the reason why he became so huge in the first place.
The final straw that broke the camel’s back was when Tati found out that Charles accepted an endorsement deal from her single biggest competitor, Sugar Bear Hair. Tati also accused the YouTube star of being sexually aggressive and darn right predatory towards straight men – statements that were backed up by third parties on her side, but their credibility was quickly tested.
Charles responded with an apology video, but the damage was already done. He lost a whopping 18% of his follower base (around 3 million), while Tati gained about 3.5 million over the feud (including Kylie Jenner). As of today, Charles’ YouTube subscribers alone is at over 15 million.
A week after the Tati video and a whirlwind for Charles – even a not-so-nice New York Times piece – James posted a video with receipts. In the 45-minute video, James went accusation by accusation and provided screenshots and evidence to support his version of events. He took responsibility for much of the problem, but also called out Tati for the many lies he says she spewed. He even dropped a few legal terms, which makes me wonder…lawsuit on the way for Tati and her fellow James Charles attackers?
So, do you think that James Charles will be forgiven? The public seems to be pretty split in terms of their support for him with many followers avidly backing him up and others swiftly switching to #TeamTati. Charles even recently announced that he was canceling his Sisters tour but that he did it 100% on his own and that it wasn’t due to the fact that any companies backed out in terms of supporting him. Who knows what the future will bring! Only time will tell on this one, but one thing is for sure – you bet we’ll be here to give you the #411 no matter which way it goes!
