Jake Paul is a professional boxer, comedian, podcaster and one of Youtube’s most successful stars. A somewhat controversial figure, Paul has cemented himself as one of the biggest social media names in Hollywood.
Beginning his journey to fame on Vine in 2013, the 25-year-old continued to build his platform not only through Youtube, but by acting in Disney sitcom ‘Bizaardvark’ (in which he was fired during the second season)
However, Paul really solidified his career when he founded Team 10 in 2017, an influencer marketing conglomerate that serves to provide comedic and controversial entertainment for, mainly, teens.
In 2020, Paul began a secondary career in professional boxing, where he has quickly risen, despite public angst, to the rank of 46th highest paid athlete, seemingly carving out his outlandish and controversial niche in an increasingly competitive influencer sphere.
What Is Jake Pauls’s Net Worth In 2022?
As of 2022, Jake Paul has an estimated net worth of $30 million US dollars, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
While maintaining his rank as one of the highest paid Youtube stars, it is estimated that Paul makes between $20 million and $40 million per year before tax.
This income is a culmination of brand partnerships, other various media payments, and most lucratively, his earnings from the boxing ring.
Despite being somewhat ridiculed in the sporting world, Forbes estimated that Paul would have earned approximately $40 million from his three boxing victories in 2021, establishing his place as one of the highest paid American athletes.
Recent audio bites from brother Logan Paul on the ‘Impaulsive’ podcast, referenced Jake Pauls ‘poor’ financial status since the cryptocurrency drop, claiming (in response to Jake’s wealth), “It doesn't matter, he put it all in crypto! He's poor!"
In spite of these revelations (however exaggerated they might have been), it is with no doubt that Paul’s financial situation isn’t so dire, and with his myriad of high paying upcoming fights, as well as a thriving social media presence, he will probably remain just fine.
However, this star’s success hasn’t been without the condemnation of the public, who have been highly critical of him numerous times.
Not only did the FBI raid his home in 2020 after he appeared in videos of a mall loot, but Paul has consistently made controversial and provocative comments on multiple platforms since, including calling COVID-19 a “hoax” in November 2020 in an interview with the Daily Beast.
However the controversy that held the most weight were accusations of sexual assault pedalled against Paul in April 2022 by TikTok creator Justin Paradise, allegations that Paul steadfastly denies.
