Here's what's to know about how much Paul is worth.
What is Jake Paul's net worth?
Jake Paul, 24, has a huge following of over 20M subscribers on YouTube and 18.5M on his Instagram and Twitter handles combined. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the boxer has a net worth of $20M as of 2021.
Paul’s boxing career began alongside his elder brother Logan’s in 2018, when the duo fought another pair of brothers, YouTubers KSI and Deji Olatunji from England. Paul won the white-collar boxing match against Olatunji, while Logan and KSI boxed to a majority draw. Since his match against Deji, Paul has amassed a 2-0 record.
Second highest paid YouTube star
He made his professional boxing debut on January 20, 2020, in Miami. He fought fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib and won the match with a TKO 2:18 into the first round.
In 2016, the internet personality, whose ring name is 'The Problem Child', earned an estimated $11.5 million. The following year, he made $11 million. Paul went on to make an astonishing $21.5 million in 2018, almost doubling his previous year's earnings. This made him the second highest paid YouTube star on the planet.
For the longest time, his primary source of income was his YouTube channel where he has racked up millions of subscribers since launching his career there in September 2013. After Vine closed down in January 2017, Disney hired Jake to be on the sitcom 'Bizaardvark'. The now TV personality's catchphrase on the show was "It's Everyday Bro!" He was fired from the show in July for being a notorious neighbor.
Paul, his roommates and his fans received a flood of negative attention for being terrible neighbors. Their antics included filming dangerous stunts at his home, including setting fire to furniture which he tossed into an empty pool. He made his home address public online, which led to fans crowding the street, and as Vanity Fair reported, making the upscale Los Angeles neighborhood a living hell. The actor even boasted in a local news report that his neighbors “hate” him, while he zoomed off his driveway on a motorbike.
Viral music video
Following this, he diversified his income sources to more than just the video-sharing platform, having made several endorsement and sponsorship deals. He enjoyed success after venturing into the entertainment and music industries.
Paul launched Team 10 in January 2017, a digital influencer marketing platform and creative agency that creates and promotes entertainment for teens. Four months later, he released a music video for a song called 'It's Everyday Bro'. The video got at least 70M views in a month.
Paul left his Beverly Grove rental in 2017 for a 15,000-square-foot mansion in Calabasas, California, which costs a whopping $6.925 million. The property sits on 3.5 acres at the end of a gated driveway and opens to a three-story entry with a spiral staircase, Italian tile and hardwood. A fireplace and floor-to-ceiling picture windows beautify his living room.
The house also has arched doorways leading to a formal dining room and kitchen, featuring four ovens and a large center island. The house has eight bedroom suites, with a wood-accented master bedroom which has a balcony, and two walk-in closets. The fancy bathroom shower has steam, aromatherapy and Bluetooth features. The home is complete with a pool and a spa with two waterfalls on its landscaped grounds, two grills and multiple patios overlooking the canyon. The YouTuber announced his intention to sell the house in January 2021 for around $7 million. In March, he sold it for $6.15 million, at a loss of $850,000.
