Jake Paul Career
In September 2013, Jake started a career in online video. Disney hired Jake when Vine shut down in January 2017 to appear in the comedy “Bizaardvark.” His show’s catchphrase was “It’s Everyday Bro!” (Side note: That catchphrase doesn’t follow proper grammar rules. “Everyday” can also signify customary, commonplace, or mundane, as in, “these are my go-to socks for every day.” Jake probably meant to say, “It’s Every Day, Bro!” which would imply something that occurs every day.)
While the second season of “Bizaardvark” was filmed in July 2017, Jake was let go. Paul had already caused several controversies by that point, including complaints from his neighbors about wild parties, practical jokes, fire hazards, and the sizeable numbers of young fans who gathered outside of Paul’s rented home after he posted his address on social media. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Paul said that the controversy surrounding his parties and the local media’s coverage of it led to his termination from the Disney Channel show.
Team 10 was started in January 2017 by Jake Paul. Team 10, a creative agency and digital influencer marketing network, produces and promotes teenage entertainment. He released “It’s Everyday Bro” as a song and music video in May of that same year. In one month, the video received more than 70 million views.
Paul published a video in early January 2018 titled “I lost my virginity.” The thumbnail for the video featured Paul and his then-girlfriend Erika Costell cuddling up next to each other semi-naked. As a result, YouTube age-restricted the video. Paul replaced the thumbnail with a picture of the couple dressed.
On January 20, 2020, Paul made his professional boxing debut in Miami. He competed against Gib, another YouTuber. Jake won the match with a T.K.O…. at 2:18 into the opening frame.
Jake Paul’s Personal Life
Paul’s neighbors in Los Angeles met with city council members and law enforcement agents on July 18, 2017, to accuse the YouTube star of being a public nuisance. After he made the address public, large crowds of admirers gathered outside Paul’s rented house in the Beverly Grove district. Finally, Paul’s landlords filed a $2.5 million lawsuit against him.
In 2018, Paul began dating model Erika Costello. They split in November of last year. He dated Chloe Bennet, who played Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., in the same year.
From April 2019 to January 2020, Paul dated Tana Mongeau, a social media personality. In a widely reported wedding in July, the couple got engaged. The marriage ended up being nothing more than a publicity gimmick.
