YouTube star Jake Paul’s highly-anticipated boxing match against former NBA pro Nate Robinson will reportedly not be taking place on September 12, and has instead been postponed to November.

Jake Paul is more than an online entertainer; the Team 10 founder has taken his talents to the boxing ring, and has already boasts two victories in his white-collar-turned-professional career.

After taking out AnEsonGib in his first-ever pro boxing match, Paul was slated to face off against none other than former NBA point guard Nate Robinson on one of the biggest fight cards to date — Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr.

Getting a spot on such a massive event was nothing short of legendary to the YouTuber, who made sure to say so via a number of social media posts; but now, it looks like both he and his fans will have to wait for his next stint in the ring.

When is Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson?

According to reports by The Ring’s Ryan O’Hara, Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr has been rescheduled for November 28 — over two months from the bout’s initial date and just two days after Thanksgiving.

The reason for this rescheduling isn’t due to current global events, either, as many had initially suspected; rather, Tyson’s team felt they could maximize revenue by pushing back the date, a decision that was also agreed upon by Jones.

Where can you watch the match?

Similarly, reports have revealed that the cost to watch the bout will land at $49.99 — a pretty penny for one of the world’s most anticipated fights yet.

Neither Robinson nor Paul have yet to comment on the match’s rescheduling, which comes just a week after Paul’s home was raided by the FBI over his appearance at a May 30 looting in Scottsdale, Arizona.

While fans are still waiting for further information regarding the situation, older brother Logan Paul has assured viewers that he is physically safe and has the full support of the Paul family.

TikTok Star Zoe Laverne admits she “caught feelings” for underage fan

TikToker Zoe Laverne has spoken out after facing a huge backlash from multiple leaked videos showing her allegedly kissing an underage fan.

Earlier this week a video surfaced online showing 19-year-old Zoe and a 13-year-old called Connor exchanging a kiss, confirming previous accusations from ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt.

In the days before, leaked Instagram messages showed that Cody and Amber raised concerns over “very intense” interactions with Connor. Zoe had previously denied allegations of a relationship with an underage influencer.

Despite leaving Instagram in September following a lip-syncing controversy, Zoe appears to have created, and now runs, a fandom Instagram account called “zlpfandom2.0.” Shortly after the videos leaked, she explained via the account that she would be taking a break from social media, but did not address the issue.

Her mom, however, did come online to share her thoughts and defended Zoe’s relationship with Connor, saying “Anybody can reach over and kiss somebody. They’re best friends.”

On October 28, Zoe finally addressed the videos on the fandom Instagram account.  She wrote, “I would like to say I am aware of what was leaked.. but Connor was not raped, etc. Connor and I kissed yes.. never had a relationship but we did catch feelings for each other after being so close. These videos were from months ago and we both realized it was wrong and we both cut it off.”

She explained that she understood the ramifications of her actions, adding, “before anything was leaked I did tell his mom we kissed. She wasn’t happy obviously but she understood that we are both teenagers and that feelings can be caught.

“I am aware that I am an adult and I am aware that I have done something wrong and I am very sorry for what I have done. Connor and I will [livestream] together as soon as this all calms down and explain ourselves.”

She also confirmed that the situation has been settled and the two have separated. “Connor and I have had no communication for 3 days now. We are still friends but we think it’s best to stop talking and work on each other’s mental health and spend time with our families”

Despite the very serious controversy, Zoe’s TikTok account continues to grow above 17 million followers.
