Jake Paul Net Worth
Jake Paul net worth: Jake Paul is an American social media personality, actor and comedian who has a net worth of $19 million. He gained extensive media coverage when the music video for his 2017 single "It's Everyday Bro" went viral on YouTube. He is the younger brother of YouTube star Logan Paul.
Early Life: Jake Joseph Paul was born on January 17, 1997 in Westlake, Ohio. He is the son of Pamela Ann Stepnick and realtor Gregory Allan Paul. Paul began his career in September 2013 posting videos on Vine. By the time Vine was discontinued, Paul had amassed 5.3 million followers and 2 billion views on the app. His older brother Logan Paul is also a social media star who started making videos for YouTube when he was 10 years old using a channel he launched called Zoosh.
Career: As his brother's star began to rise, Jake also launched a video career. He began posting humorous videos to vine in September 2013. By the time Vine shut down, Jake had amassed 5 million followers. He was quickly hired by Disney to appear on the sitcom Bizaardvark. His catchphrase is "It's Everyday Bro!" (Side note. That catchphrase is not grammatically correct. "Everyday" means commonplace, ordinary or routine, for example: "these are my everyday run-of-the-mill socks." I'm pretty sure Jake is intending to say "It's Every Day Bro!" which would mean something that happens each day… but who am I to judge?)
On July 22, 2017, during the middle of filming the second season of Bizaardvark, the Disney Channel announced that Paul would be leaving the series, saying in a statement "We've mutually agreed that Jake Paul will leave his role on the Disney Channel series 'Bizaardvark.' On behalf of the production company, the cast, and crew, we thank Jake for his good work on the TV series for the past 18 months and extend our best wishes to him." The announcement followed a news report from Los Angeles television station KTLA about public complaints from Paul's neighbors regarding the noise generated by Paul's pranks, parties, fire hazards and the large crowds of Paul's fans congregating in their neighborhood. Paul later confirmed the news on his Twitter page, saying he would now focus more on his personal brand, his YouTube channel, his business ventures, and more adult acting roles. Paul later revealed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that he was actually fired from Bizaardvark by Disney who wanted to expedite the process of weaning him off the show due to the KTLA segment.
In January 2017, Jake raised $1 million to launch Team 10, a digital influencer marketing platform and creative agency that aims to promote teen entertainment. On May 30, 2017, Paul released a song and music video alongside Team 10, titled "It's Everyday Bro", which accumulated over 70 million views in one month, and became the third most disliked video on the website. The song peaked at number 91 on the Billboard Hot 100 on the chart dated June 24, 2017.
On January 3, 2018, Paul uploaded a video to his YouTube channel titled "I lost my virginity" which used a thumbnail of himself and his then-girlfriend Erika Costell posing semi-nude on top of each other. The video was age-restricted by YouTube as a result. The thumbnail was later changed with both Paul and Costell fully clothed and not touching each other.
In February 2018, it was announced that Paul and his brother would be fighting KSI and his younger brother, Deji, in two white-collar boxing matches. Paul's fight against Deji was the chief undercard bout before their older brothers, KSI and Logan Paul, did battle in the main event. Paul won the fight after 5 rounds. On January 20, 2020, Paul made his professional boxing debut against fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib (known as Gib) in Miami. The match between Paul and Gib was the co-feature to the match between professional boxers Demetrius Andrade and Luke Keeler. Jake won the fight via technical knockout at 2:18 in the first round.
In February 2020, Paul announced that he would partner with Los Angeles-based brand development group GenZ Holdings Inc. to create a $19.99 per month platform aimed at teaching children how to build an online presence.
Personal Life: On July 18, 2017, it was reported that Paul's neighbors in the Beverly Grove neighborhood of Los Angeles were meeting with city council members and police officials about filing a class-action public nuisance lawsuit against Paul. This came after Paul made his home address public, leading crowds of fans to gather outside Paul's residence, and noise complaints by neighbors. On April 24, 2018, it was reported that Paul was being sued by Cobra Acquisitions, the company that owns the house, for $2.5 million.
Paul dated social media star, Tana Mongeau, from April 2019 to January 2020. The two were engaged and married in a highly publicized ceremony in July. The wedding turned out to be nothing but a publicity stunt.
Salary Highlights: In 2016, Jake earned an estimated $11.5 million. In 2017, he made $11 million. In 2018, Jake made an astonishing $21.5 million. That was enough to make him the second-highest-paid YouTube star on the planet.
Real Estate: In 2017, Jake Paul departed his Beverly Grove rental for a 15,000 square foot mansion in Calabasas, California which he purchased for $6.925 million. Set on 3.5 acres at the end of a gated driveway, the home opens to a three-story entry with a spiral staircase, Italian tile, and hardwood. The living room has a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling picture windows.
