At 27 years old, Jake Paul has this physical status:
Paul started his career in September 2013 by posting Vine videos. Paul had 5.3 million followers and 2 billion views on the app by the time Twitter Inc. discontinued Vine. On May 15, 2014, Paul's YouTube channel was launched. His channel is known for pranks, scandals, and his hip hop music.
After gaining fame on Vine and YouTube, Paul was recruited to appear in the Disney Channel series Bizaardvark, portraying a character who defied dare demands that he appear. The Disney Channel announced on July 22, 2017, during the second season of Bizaardvark's second season, that Paul would be leaving the series. Following a news release from KTLA regarding public screams caused by Paul's pranks, parties, fire risks, and the huge crowds of Paul's supporters gathered in their neighborhood, the KTLA reported the announcement. Paul later revealed the news on his Twitter page that he would now concentrate more on his personal brand, his YouTube channel, and more adult acting roles. In a talk with Hollywood Reporter, Paul later revealed that he was actually fired from Bizaardvark by Disney, which wanted to expedite the process of weaning him off the show due to the KTLA segment.
In 2016, Paul formed Team 10, an entertainment company. It was announced on January 17, 2017, Paul's 20th birthday, that he had founded TeamDom, a $1 million media firm that would create an influencer marketing agency specialized in teen entertainment. Danhua Capital, Horizons Alpha, Vayner Capital, Sound Ventures & A-Grade Investments, and Adam Zeplain are among the investors.
On May 30, 2017, Paul released "It's Everyday Bro" alongside Team 10, as well as the music video. It featured vocals from members of the team at the time, including Nick Crompton, Chance Sutton, Ivan, Emilio Martinez, and Tessa Brooks. The video attracted over 70 million viewers in a month, becoming the third most viewed video on the site. The song debuted and peaked at number 91 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was named platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Its name refers to how Paul used to broadcast a video every single day. "Ohio Fried Chicken," "Jerika," "Not on the News," and "Litmas," were among Paul's hits, "That Ain't on the News." The singles were suspended for various reasons, including Erika Costell's break-up in 2018.
Paul released a remix of "It's Everyday Bro," starring American rapper Gucci Mane in place of Team 10, as well as a new music video for it. Along with the music video, Paul released the single Malibu on April 27, 2018, along with now-former Team 10 member Chad Tepper. Sunny Malouf and Anthony Trujillo, both of Team 10's, were included in My Teachers' single on May 11, as well as the music video. Randy Savage and Cartier Vision were two singles on May 24, both of whom were released on May 24. The former member of Team ten and a Quan is featured on the album, as well as the music video. Anthony and the duo appear in the latter song, as well as the music video; the music video was released later on September 12.
Paul released "Champion" on August 15, 2018 with a music video. The song was on a dissemblance with Paul's boxing rival, Deji Olatunji (ComedyShortsGamer), the younger brother of British YouTuber, internet personality, boxer, and rapper KSI, in which their fight took place ten days later on August 25. Paul and Team 10 went on a tour in North America during the summer of 2018. From the start of the year to the end, the Team 10 members were all left one by one at one point or another.
In 2018, Paul was ranked second on Forbes' list of the top-paid YouTubers.
On March 1, 2019, Paul released the single "I'm Single," as well as the music video. Paul's emotions about being single and his breakup with Erika Costell were the subject of the song. Some believed that Team 10 had been disbanded and that Paul had formed a new team as the social media pages for Team 10 have been inactive since September 2019. Paul released "These Days" on December 13, 2019, but the film was taken down from streaming services less than a year later.
Paul's single "Fresh Outta London" was released on July 24, 2020, alongside the music video. He threw a party at his Calabasas, California, 13 days before being chastised by Calabasas mayor Alicia Weintraub after videos and photos of the party surfaced online. Paul's older brother Logan appeared in a music video at his house on September 10, but there were also clips of him and a few of his family members. The song's name refers to his youth at the time, as well as American former basketball player Michael Jordan's jersey number. Paul released the single "Dummy" on October 15, starring Canadian rapper TVGucci, who is signed to fellow Canadian rapper Drake's OVO Sound. On October 21, the lyric video was released on Paul's YouTube channel six days later.
To help the youth cope with bullying, Paul founded 'Boxing Bullies' in 2021.
In 2021, Paul founded the 'Anti Fund,' along with serial entrepreneur Geoffrey Woo.

In the second round, Paul won the battle by KO at 1:24 per second round.
On December 22, 2020, it was announced that Paul's third pro bout opponent will be former Bellator MMA and ONE Welterweight champion Ben Askren, who died on March 28, 2021, Los Angeles, after a back-and-forth on social media. After Askren's words, rumors of a proposed March 28 date in Los Angeles began circulating. The fight will be held in Atlanta on April 17, 2021, on February 26, 2021. In round 1, Paul defeated Askren via TKO at 1:59. According to reports, the tournament attracted 1.45 million pay-per-view views as per Triller, but several celebrities, followers, MMA champions, and boxers alike have questioned the event's legitimacy.
Before the Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren main event took place, he and one of his cornermen J'Leon Love were involved in a backstage brawl with former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley, where Woodley was mocked due to his inexperience in boxing and the result of Paul's fight against Woodley's long-time teammate Ben Askren. Paul was called out by Woodley after knocking out Askren. News broke on May 31, 2021, that Paul was due to face Woodley in a boxing match on August 29, 2021. He was a winner in the fight by a split vote. One judge decided the game was 77-75 for Woodley, while the other two judges scored it 77–75 and 78–74 in favour of Paul.

In 2:12 of the 6th round, Paul defeated Woodley by KO at 2:12 of the 6th round. With the scores of 49–46 (twice) and 48–46, Paul was winning the tournament at the time of the stoppage. Both DAZN and ESPN recognized the knockout as the year's best KO of the year.

The fight was scheduled for August 6, 2022, at the Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. The bout would be postponed due to "weight issues" and that all payments to the fight would be refunded, according to the fighter's spokesperson on July 30.

Jake Paul was feeling some type of way on Saturday night, and now we’ve got ourselves a wonderful new celebrity feud to track!
The whole thing went down last night in Las Vegas at the much-anticipated boxing match between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder — but while most people paid attention to what went down in the ring (Fury won, BTW), we’re focused more on everything that happened in the crowd.
Can Tana Mongeau‘s non-legal marriage survive this drama??
Over the weekend, Jake Paul was photographed with his “ex-girlfriend” Erika Costell at a Panera Bread.

As we reported, the two YouTube stars tied the knot at a Las Vegas venue last month. Highlights from the chaotic ceremony included Jake freestyling his vows and Logan Paul shading Tana in front of all the guests, but eyebrows were raised when their wedding officiant, convicted pimp (yes, seriously) Arman Izadi, ended the ceremony seemingly unofficially after a fight broke out.
