James Charles’ friendship with Kylie Jenner appears to have survived his feud with Tati Westbrook.

Jenner allegedly turned her back on YouTube make-up vlogger Charles on Instagram after Westbrook accused him of “problematic behaviour” and claimed “fame, power and a fat bank account” had changed him.

But Charles has since posted a picture of himself posing alongside the beauty billionaire in celebration of the launch of her new range, Kylie Skin.

One user questioned the image after it was reported Jenner had unfollowed Charles in the wake of the feud, but he replied: “She never followed in the first place lol stop believing everything.”

Charles’ subscriber count on YouTube plummeted after Westbrook posted a 43 minute video titled BYE SISTER after Charles made a sponsored deal with SugarBearHair, a brand that is a direct rival to Westbrook’s HaloBeauty.

She also accused him of ‘manipulating’ men’s sexuality by attempting to “turn straight men gay” – something he vehmently denied.

Fans threw their support behind Westbrook, with her subscriber numbers soaring from 6.3 million to 10.3 million while others vandalised and threw out his make-up palette.

YouTube’s most dramatic feud finally reached a ceasefire last weekend when Westbrook revealed they had decided to put the drama to “rest” for the sake of their mental health.

She wrote: “I have been in communication with James Charles…and we believe that is in the best interest of our community, our viewers and our own mental health to put this matter at rest.”

Charles tweeted: “I am on board to move on, will not speak about this further, but do hope to speak in the future when we’re all ready.”

Westbrook asked fans to “stop the hate” after Charles described the feud as the 'darkest time in his life'.
