So, Charlie has kind of rebranded his music career on TikTok with ultra-viral videos, where he shows the behind-the-scenes journey of making his songs. They’ve gotten tens of millions of views, and people really love them.
And recently, Benny has been taking jabs at Charlie on TikTok every time he’s posted anything music-related. Like, he’s called him a “piece of shit” and mocked him for documenting his musical process.

“Well, do you mind explaining what it was about?”
“Bro, I was being facetious. I was being completely sarcastic. I also can’t tell if you’re joking right now…” Ugh, THE AWKWARDNESS. You can kind of hear Charlie’s soul leave his body at this point.
“Well, I don’t appreciate it,” Justin said, before the video ended.
Charlie claimed he knew from the beginning, but from the sound of his voice and demeanor on the phone, IDK about that.
He said Justin being with Kid Laroi was the biggest red flag.
