Jake Paul, the 19-year old Vine star, had a great first half of 2017. Aside from being cast as a character on Disney Channel’s show, Bizaardvark, he was in several films, and he even started hitting the celebrity social scene.
But things are starting to turn around. After a rash of terrible publicity, he has been canned from his Disney Channel TV show, and he’s had additional setbacks as well. Not to mention, Jake Paul was at the center of a major controversy and showdown with a rival, Faze Banks. In addition, it appears that Jake Paul’s ex-girlfriend, Alissa Violet, was also involved in this controversy.
On his newfound fame, Jake Paul told the New York Times:
“I know it’s a cliche, but like, literally, I want to create an empire of dozens of talents under me , to take my power and multiply it, so that I become bigger than myself.”
On his keen sense of entrepreneurship, Jake Paul has said:
“A lot of [influencers] are lazy. They’re cool with a nice car, or some money in the bank or being able to get in the backdoor at 1Oak or something…“If you look at the biggest people on social media right now, it’s the Kardashians. My goal is to form a crew that’s bigger than them collectively. It might take us five years, but we’ll get there…“To be the best, you’ve got to beat the best. I’ve been making videos for the past ten years, so if someone wants to knock me off, they’d better bring it.”
So what is Jake Paul net worth?
