YouTube star Logan Paul was spotted holding hands with model Josie Canseco in mid-January — but it looks like the pair have already called it quits, and Paul wasn’t the one who broke things off.

Nearly a year after his short-lived fling with Facebook Gaming streamer Corinna Kopf, Paul was spotted getting cozy with Canseco at the Rose Bowl Flea Market, as captured by a few paparazzi pics of the two.

However, it seems that the celebrity couple is already donion-rings, with a source close to the stars claiming that Canseco dropped Logan like a hot potato just a month later.

According to reports from TMZ, the source claimed that Canseco effectively ghosted her ex-boyfriend, with the two allegedly having parted ways a week ago when she stopped contacting him altogether.

It doesn’t seem like their breakup had anything to do with Logan’s “fake dating prank” involving his ex-sister-in-law Tana Mongeau, either, with the source also claiming that Canseco quit speaking to Paul before photos of the two YouTubers went viral.

In fact, Canseco reportedly knew that the whole thing was a massive practical joke and is well aware of their friendly, non-romantic relationship.

Instead, the source alleges that she felt Paul just “wasn’t the one for her,” and was even concerned that he was using her fame for clout — and odd possibility, considering the internet star boasts over 20 million YouTube subscribers.

Thus far, Logan has yet to respond to reports of his split with the model; but it doesn’t look like anything is getting “The Maverick” down, as evidenced by a Tweet he published a few days prior to the news.

“Finally at a point in my life where I’m overwhelmingly content with the person I am and the person I’m becoming,” he wrote. “It sucks that it took mistakes and failures to evolve the way I did, but I’m finally starting to see my life play out the way I always imagined.”

Despite his breakup, it seems YouTube’s oldest Paul brother is keeping his head up and his sights clear for his future.

Jake Paul claims Disney didn’t fire him after Bizaardvark controversy

Jake Paul has dismissed new claims he was fired by Disney back in 2017 during his stint on sitcom Bizaardvark, addressing the three-and-a-half-year-old controversy in a recent interview.

Jake Paul, while juggling his YouTube and Vine antics back in 2017, was fast-becoming one of Disney’s biggest stars. The then 20-year-old played Dirk Mann on the sitcom Bizaardvark for two seasons.

However, his stay on the set was cut abruptly short in June 2017. He parted ways with the project, and there was a mixed reaction.

Back then, Jake Paul said that he and Disney “came to the agreement” to mutually part ways. However, others have claimed the star was fired over a series of controversies, including a news segment that saw neighbours complain about the then-Disney star.

Paul has rubbished those claims though. He doubled down on his initial statement three years ago, saying that he played along with the community sentiment as a joke.

“It’s funny because, for the last three years I’ve sort of ran with everyone saying, “Oh, he got fired,” just because I think it’s funnier to say, “I got fired by Disney,” but in reality it was a mutual decision to split from each other,” he told The Daily Beast.

The decision was purely a business one, according to Paul. He wanted more money, and Disney wasn’t offering it.

“They weren’t paying me enough. I was making millions more — per week — than I was on that show, and it was a mutual decision for us to split up,” he added.

“Everyone I worked with on that show was fantastic, but from a business standpoint it didn’t make sense. I was aging up and wanted more money.”

Jake Paul has since gone on to grow his career on YouTube, even expanding into boxing the likes of AnEsonGib on a Mike Tyson card, something the younger Paul brother said was the highlight of his life.

However, the real reasoning behind his parting with Disney will always be questioned.
