The YouTuber with nearly 18 million subscribers is facing a lawsuit from a neighbor who said he was unlawfully detained at Paul’s southern California mansion because of his race.
According to TMZ, the neighbor said he was concerned about speeding cars entering and exiting Paul’s property, and after ringing the buzzer at the front of the house, the gate opened for him.
But once he entered the property in February 2018, the neighbor said one of Paul’s friends yelled at him and a security guard yanked his arm behind his back and trapped him against a car to hold him while the police were called. TMZ wrote, though, the cops let the neighbor go without any charges.
Now, the neighbor is reportedly suing Paul for false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
This certainly isn’t the first time Jake Paul has faced a lawsuit. Let’s take a look at the list.
- In 2017, he was sued by a California man for allegedly damaging his hearing after Paul and his cohorts used an “obnoxiously loud” car horn to scare him and other citizens during a prank video.
- In 2018, he was sued for $2.5 million for allegedly trashing his rental home, the same Team 10 house that was the spot where he annoyed his neighbors, set some furniture on fire, and had scores of fans show up at the house daily.
- In December 2018, Paul faced a lawsuit for allegedly trashing a $10 million rental home in Aspen, Colorado.
In this latest lawsuit, Paul’s lawyer told TMZ that Paul was not present at the time and wasn’t aware of the incident with the neighbor until later.
