Controversial YouTuber Jake Paul could be facing a hefty fine for his company, thanks to a rowdy 21st birthday party the social media star threw in a $10 million Starwood mansion in January of 2018.
Jake Paul celebrated his 21st at a mansion in Aspen, Colorado, rented by Team 10 for around $61,000 over an 11-day period.
During this time frame, Paul engaged in a plethora of rambunctious shenanigans, including throwing dishes at a bedroom window in the house and racing around the yard in a series of off-road ATVs (reportedly worth up to $40,000).
Mansion owner Isabelle Freidheim filed a lawsuit against Team 10 talent manager Krista Burditt in June of 2018, with claims that Burditt had violated terms of the rental lease - which included using the estate for “commercial purposes,” as evidenced by Paul’s vlog of the experience.
Freidheim has since expanded the suit to include Team 10, which was confirmed by a judge on Wednesday, December 19. Team 10’s lawyers are now fighting this expansion, arguing that the home was rented for Paul’s personal use, specifically.
According to the lawsuit, the squad was “prohibited from using the home for any disorderly conduct or in a manner that created excessive or unreasonable noise or nuisance.”
With thirteen minutes of video evidence standing against the group, it comes as no surprise that Pitkin County District Court judge Denise Lynch ruled in favor of the Freidheim’s claim, although a potential trial date has yet to be set for the debacle.
