Justine Paradise, a very popular inflencer on TikTok, accuses Jake Paul of sexual assault.
According to an article published by the NYpost on April 13, 2021, American YouTube star Jake Paul is charged with sexual assault. On her TikTok page, Justine Paradise (527,000 subscribers) explains that she kept this information secret for a long time for fear of the reaction of Internet users. In another video, she directly accuses Jake Paul of sexual assault.
“Jake Paul sexually assaulted me”
In a 20-minute video titled “Warning: Jake Paul Sexually Assaulted Me” posted on Youtube, the 24-year-old influencer details her assault “that occurred last year.” She also explains the reasons why it took a long time for her to be able to speak about this story publicly.

The Youtube star’s lawyers told NYpost: “Our client is aware of the charges against him. (…) Our client formally denies these charges and intends to file a defamation complaint” reports the American media .

Mayweather responds to Jake Paul: “you went from groupie to fake boxer”
After receiving a spade from Jake Paul, boxing champion Floyd Mayweather made a point of answering him.
If there’s one thing the brothers Logan and Jake Paul know how to do, it’s buzz. They’re like “fell in when they were little,” and haven’t stopped since. While a few years ago, Logan and Jake decided to get into boxing, these outsiders completely foreign to the discipline but with a strong media presence attracted all eyes. After knocking out former NBA player Nate Robinson, Jake visibly felt growing wings as he now decided to face Floyd Mayweather himself.
“Respecting” the tradition of trash-talking, the youngest of the Paul brothers decided to go after Floyd by means of a video posted on Twitter on February 4th. He recites a poem to her in which he attacks her in particular on her size and her management of social networks … before returning to the tumultuous relationship between his daughter, Yaya, and the NBA rapper Youngboy, father of the first child of this- this. Jake also made a point of demeaning Floyd for his “lack of education”, implying that the latter could not read. Paul also mentions not doing an exhibition fight, and demands a 50-50 distribution of the revenue from the fight, if it takes place. But the story does not end there.

<< You went from groupie to fake pro boxer, this world is crazy >>
Of course, Floyd Mayweather responded. It is on Instagram that the boxing champion shared several photos accompanied by a long unequivocal comment: “Jake Paul says he does not do exhibition fights, yet the two pseudo boxing fights he has fact … were exhibition fights. He did not fight against real boxing professionals, “he notes. But very quickly, Floyd gets to the heart of the matter and gets to the particularly problematic point of Jake’s attack.
He continues: “and I’m not kidding when it comes to education because millions of black people got lynched just because they read__. Let me see: you surrounded yourself with a black coach , you try to dress like you’re black, wear jewelry like black people, you try to dance like black people, but you don’t wanna be BLACK. All you do is try to dance. ‘appropriate our’ black swag ‘. You went from groupie to fake pro boxer, this world is crazy. ”
Floyd’s answer is thought provoking, both on the issue of racism and on the evolution of the entertainment industry. Has the world of entertainment reached a point of no return by allowing web celebrities to invest in sports like the Paul brothers do? In any case one thing is certain, Floyd Mayweather is very coveted these days. It is in particular 50 Cent who would like to compete with him.
