YouTuber Shane Dawson took a deep dive into the dynamics of Jake Paul’s social media group ‘Team 10’ in the newest episode of his docuseries, ‘The Mind of Jake Paul.’

In the fifty-minute video, Dawson visited the home/office of former Team 10 COO Nick Crompton, who only agreed to an in-depth interview due to Jake’s express permission.

The two discussed the legitimacy of Team 10 in terms of the group’s prank videos and abuse allegations.

Crompton held that the pranks had all been pre-planned, and described the Team 10 house as ‘a bunch of people living together and having fun,’ even using the term ‘family’ in relation to the group.

“I feel like anyone who’s a little bit older knows that it’s all fake,” he told Dawson. “It’s difficult to say that they’re fake when there’s loads of young kids enjoying and watching it.”

Team 10 – and Jake Paul, in particular – were pulled into a controversy when the Martinez Twins came forward with claims of abuse from the group, citing multiple instances of documented behavior that included being handcuffed to a bed and their room being destroyed.

Crompton stated that the Twins knew of these pranks beforehand, and admitted that the room Paul destroyed was a fake.

He also revealed that Logan Paul had slept with Jake’s ex-girlfriend, Alissa Violet – although it seems like that controversy wasn’t planned.

Dawson doesn’t seem to be ending the investigation there: His next episode will dive into Jake’s relationship with Violet, hinting at a possible interview with the YouTuber via a voicemail, as well as filming secret footage of Team 10.

YouTuber Jake Paul and former UFC star Ben Askren are set to take to the boxing ring on April 17, but they’re already in a war of words ahead of the bout.

It’s no Conor McGregor, but Jake Paul is going big for his next boxing bout.

After taking down Nate Robinson with relative ease, the YouTube star turned hopeful boxer will take to the ring against Ben Askren on April 17.

However, in the lead up to the fight, the two have already thrown punches over text.

Ben Askren leaked DMs between the two on February 24, claiming “this next generation has some really bad role models.”

“Hey Jake seriously were you even trying against Ben [Darmstadt]? That was pathetic. Hope you try a little bit harder in our fight,” the former UFC fighter opened with in the exchange.

“Hiya bubba! So good to hear from you! I know Masvidal gave you brain damage so I’m guessing you meant to ask if I was even trying against Nate,” Paul replied.

“We’re going to get you through this fight nice and fast so you can retire after.”

Askren clarified that he was talking about Ben Darmstadt, before Jake Paul went on a tangent, asking his opponents if he’s ever taken drugs, saying he needs “help taking his edge off.”

While Askren ignored most of Paul’s questions, he had the final jab ahead of the bout.

“You gave up here like you’re going to give up in our fight. You don’t have the heart. Please don’t back out of our fight.”

Jake Paul vs Ben Askren is locked in for April 17, and is set to be one of the biggest PPV fights in history.
