Jake Paul, like his brother, is now facing a scandal of his own, but admittedly, on a much smaller scale. According to a new report obtained by the gossip tabloid, TMZ, Jake Paul forged the signature of one of his friends and used his good credit for a property he subsequently trashed.
Max Goodrich claims that he and Jake considered living in a home together which the YouTube star used for many of his escapades, but after Max decided it wasn’t a great idea, they used his credit score, faked his signature, and placed his name on the contractual agreement.
Following a year and six months, the home that Jake lived in is allegedly ruined, and Max believes his name never should’ve been on the lease, to begin with.
As a result, Max is taking Jake to court for fraud and also wants him to pay for all of the damage he and his friends caused. This comes after Logan Paul faced a serious controversy at the beginning of the year after he went to the Suicide Forest in Japan and filmed a man who had killed himself.
However, after a long and contentious media scandal, Logan generated views for different reasons. Logan took to the boxing match with his fellow YouTuber, KSI, where they duked it out in front of thousands of people.
The New York Times previously reported that approximately 20,000 people showed up for the match at the Manchester Arena on Saturday night, and 773,000 people watched the pay-per-view stream on Google’s platform, YouTube.
In total, Business Insider claims that they generated up to USD $9.7 million in revenue. To see the event live, fans had to pay approximately USD $165 or 135 pounds.
There were other tickets sold, including the VIP section which cost around 500 pounds. Moreover, the analysis for the fight didn’t include revenue from YouTube’s advertisements.
Nevertheless, Logan Paul and Jake Paul are known for their off-the-wall tactics, as their videos feature pranks, stunts, and all kinds of behavior which has amassed the both of them, a large following, but also a fair amount of criticism.
