Jake Paul Early Life
Jake Joseph Paul was born on January 17, 1997, in Westlake, Ohio to Pamela Stepnick and Gregory Paul. He has one brother, Logan, who is also a popular YouTube star. Jake got started posting videos on the now-defunct video platform Vine. When it shut down, he had nearly five and a half million followers and two billion views on Vine.
Jake Paul Career
Jake began his video career in September 2013. After Vine was acquired by Disney in January 2017, Jake was cast in the sitcom “Bizaardvark.” On the show, his catchphrase was “It’s Everyday Bro!” (As an aside, that catchphrase is grammatically incorrect. “Everyday” refers to something that is commonplace, ordinary, or routine, as in “these are my run-of-the-mill everyday socks.” I’m pretty sure Jake means “It’s Every Day, Bro!” which means something that happens every day…)
During the second season of “Bizaardvark,” Jake was fired in July 2017. By that point, Paul had sparked a slew of controversies, including complaints from his neighbors about wild parties, pranks, and fire hazards, as well as massive crowds of young fans who gathered outside of Paul’s rented house after he posted his address on social media. Paul confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that he was fired from the Disney Channel show due to the uproar over his parties and the local news coverage of it.
Jake Paul established Team 10 in January 2017. Team 10 is a creative agency and digital influencer marketing platform that creates and promotes entertainment for teenagers. In May of that year, he released “It’s Everyday Bro,” a song and music video. In one month, the video received over 70 million views.
Paul posted a video titled “I lost my virginity” in early January 2018. The thumbnail for the video showed Paul and his then-girlfriend Erika Costell semi-nude on top of each other. As a result, YouTube age-restricted the video. Paul changed the thumbnail to a photo of the couple dressed up.
On January 20, 2020, Paul made his professional boxing debut in Miami. He competed against fellow YouTubers Gib. Jake won with a TKO 2:18 into the first round.

Jake Paul Personal Life
Paul’s Los Angeles neighbors met with city council members and law enforcement officials on July 18, 2017, with the intention of filing a public nuisance lawsuit against the YouTube star. Large crowds of fans gathered outside Paul’s rented home in the Beverly Grove neighborhood after he made the address of his rented home public. Paul’s landlords eventually sued him for $2.5 million.
In 2018, Paul began dating model Erika Costello. They split up in November 2018. He dated “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” actress Chloe Bennet the same year.
Tana Mongeau, a social media star, dated Paul from April 2019 to January 2020. In July, the couple announced their engagement and married in a highly publicized ceremony. The wedding was revealed to be nothing more than a publicity stunt.
Paul threw a massive party at his Calabasas, California mansion in 2019. Authorities were looking into whether a number of young female guests’ drinks had been spiked. At least one person complained to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department that their drink had been tainted.
According to a Facebook post on the “My daughter was at a party in Calabasas last night for YouTube Jake Paul,” a concerned mother wrote on the “Moms of Conejo Valley” page. The mansion was packed with young people. She was admitted to West Hills Hospital incoherent along with eight other girls who had been drugged.” The girls, according to their mother, were half-naked and unable to speak or walk.
Paul was having dinner at P.F. Changs in Scottsdale Fashion Square mall on May 30, 2020, during the George Floyd/Black Lives Matter protests. People started looting the mall. Paul and his friends waded into the midst of the looting to document what was going on. He was charged with criminal trespass and unlawful assembly, both misdemeanor offences. He was not detained. He must appear in court in Arizona.
During the summer of 2020, Jake Paul received a lot of flak for the large house parties he threw during the coronavirus pandemic. At Paul’s parties, no face masks or social distancing were required. Furthermore, despite local laws, Paul has no intention of discontinuing his illegal gatherings because he wants to “live his life.” Calabassas mayor Alicia Weintraub has condemned a July 14, 2020 party.
