OMG, you guys! It appears that beauty guru James Charles has been sister scammed by a man — nay, boy — who’s been leading him on for months on end. Uh, what?

You heard that correctly, sisters! After being spotted at Coachella with model Gage Gomez, rumors began to fly that the two were a thing — especially because fans matched the rings Gage was wearing to a photo James posted on Snapchat.

Of course, once fans of the makeup artist matched the rings to Gage, the internet was set ablaze with speculation that the two were more than just friends. Before you get too excited, though, you should know that James has been sister swindled, and according to him, this Gage character was only playing him like a fool. Yikes!

In response to a fan who totally thought James was taken, the 19 year old wrote, “nope unfortunately i am still very single. this boy played me for months on end and is a disgusting con artist. I’m thankful I had my friends with me to protect me.” Yikes!

Like you, we’re absolutely heartbroken that James had to find this out the hard way, and it also made us wonder if Gage is the boy James was crying about in his hotel room back in February.

“I officially give up,” the Sisters Apparel founder tweeted. “I’m sitting sobbing in my hotel room at 8am when I have to be on set in an hour. This is no one’s fault but my own because my dumb a– continues to go for the same type of insecure cute boys and it gets me hurt every. single. time. I f–king hate myself.”

That same day, James shared a selfie on his Instagram Stories, referring to a text message that totally ruined his whole day.

The caption read, “Good morning world don’t you love waking up to a text message that ruins your entire day before it even begins? Same.” Poor James!

While we can’t be positive the makeup expert was referring to Gage back then, he did just tweet that he’s been getting played by the physical trainer for several months now, so it seems pretty likely this heartbreak was because of him.

Long story short, James is still living the single life, but when he does find that special someone, we can trust that his 16 million sisters strong will be able to crack the case and identify the man who’s responsible for stealing his heart. After all, if they can identify Gage from a simple Snapchat of ice cream, they can identify anyone!
