Jake Paul was born on January 17, 1997, in Westlake, Ohio. Logan, his only sibling, is also a well-known YouTube personality. Jake began publishing videos on Vine, which is now dead. When Vine was shut down, he had approximately 5.5 million followers and over two billion views.
In September 2013, Jake began his video career. Jake was cast in the Disney sitcom “Bizaardvark” after Vine was shut down in January 2017. “It’s Everyday Bro!” he would exclaim on the show. (As a side note, that catchphrase is incorrect grammatically.) “Everyday” can refer to something that is typical, ordinary, or routine, such as “my everyday run-of-the-mill socks.” I’m pretty sure Jake means “It’s Every Day, Bro!” which means “Every Day!”…)
During the second season’s filming, Jake was sacked from “Bizaardvark.” By that time, Paul had sparked a slew of controversy, including complaints from his neighbors about crazy parties, pranks, and fire dangers, as well as the massive throngs of teenage followers who gathered outside of Paul’s rented house after he posted his address on social media. Paul acknowledged to The Hollywood Reporter that he was sacked from the Disney Channel show owing to the uproar around his parties and local press coverage.
In January 2017, Jake Paul founded Team 10. Team 10 is a digital influencer marketing platform and creative agency that specializes in creating and promoting teen entertainment. He released the song “It’s Everyday Bro” with a music video in May of that year. In just one month, the video surpassed 70 million views.
Paul posted a video titled “I lost my virginity” in early January of this year. The thumbnail for the film shows Paul and his then-girlfriend Erika Costell semi-nuding each other. As a result, YouTube censored the video. The thumbnail was altered to a picture of the pair dressed up.
On January 20, 2020, in Miami, Paul made his professional boxing debut. Gib, a YouTuber, was his opponent. Jake won in the first round by TKO at 2:18.

Jake Paul is a comedian, actor, and boxer from the United States. Jake Paul has a net worth of $30 million at the time of writing. Jake is one of the highest-paid YouTube personalities in the world, with annual earnings ranging from $10 million to $20 million (before taxes). When his 2017 single “It’s Everyday Bro” became popular on YouTube, he received a lot of media attention. Logan Paul, a YouTube sensation, is his younger brother.
Paul’s Los Angeles neighbors gathered with city council members and law enforcement officers on July 18, 2017, to discuss pursuing a public nuisance complaint against the YouTube star. Large groups of fans gathered outside Paul’s rented home in Beverly Grove when he made the address of his rented home public. Paul’s landlords ultimately sued him for $2.5 million.
Erika Costello, a model, is Paul’s current girlfriend. In November 2018, they called it quits. In the same year, he began dating Chloe Bennet of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
From April 2019 to January 2020, Paul dated social media personality, Tana Mongeau. In July, the couple announced their engagement and married in front of a large crowd. The wedding was merely a publicity gimmick.
Paul had a huge party at his property in Calabasas, California, in 2019. Authorities looked into whether a number of young female attendees’ beverages had been tampered with. At least one customer reported their drink to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department as being tainted. According to a Facebook post on the subject, “My daughter was at a YouTube Jake Paul party in Calabasas last night,” a worried mother commented on the “Moms of Conejo Valley” group. The residence was crammed with teenagers. She was taken to West Hills Hospital disoriented with eight other girls who had been drugged.” The girls were half-naked and unable to speak or walk, according to the mother.
Paul was having dinner at P.F. Changs in the Scottsdale Fashion Square mall on May 30, 2020, during the George Floyd/Black Lives Matter protests in Scottsdale, Arizona. The mall was robbed. Paul and his friends went into the midst of the thievery to capture the action on camera. He faces minor counts of criminal trespassing and unlawful assembly. He was not detained by the authorities. In Arizona, he’ll have to go to court.
During the spread of the coronavirus epidemic in the summer of 2020, Jake Paul received a lot of backlash for the large house parties he threw. Paul’s parties didn’t require any face masks or social isolation. Moreover, despite local laws, Paul has no intention of ceasing his illegal meetings because he wants to “live his life.” Calabassas mayor Alicia Weintraub spoke out against a party on July 14, 2020.
