YouTube star Jake Paul has become the talk of the internet, yet again, after his Calabasas mansion was raided by the FBI — and now, older brother Logan Paul has spoken out regarding the incident.

While Jake Paul has boasted a slew of divisive moments throughout his career as an online entertainer, few come close to the bombshell that was an unexpected investigation into his California residence by the Feds.

Paul’s name crossed headlines on August 5, with reports and video footage showing that officers had confiscated a “small militia’s” worth of weapons from the residence, claiming that it was in connection to his appearance in an Arizona looting.

While the exact reason for the raid remains unclear, Logan Paul opened up about the incident during an episode of the ‘imPaulsive’ podcast on August 6 — and he’s just as confused as the rest of us are.

Recounting a humorous conversation with his mother when the news broke, Paul claimed he knows nothing about what incited the raid, in spite of speculation to the contrary from fans.

“I’ll tell you what I know,” Paul began. “I know what you know. I don’t know s**t. I know my brother’s okay, physically, he’s fine. But I’m out of the loop on this one, guys. I have a statement here from Jake’s attorney.”

The statement, as published by TMZ, claimed that Jake would cooperate with authorities regarding their investigation as they gather more information.

“So, it’s like, I don’t know s**t bro,” he continued. “…I checked in on him, he’s fine. It’s a bit of a headache, we’re figuring it out. This story will unfold, but I want you guys to know that we’re here to support Jake Paul. Hopefully this comes out in a healthy, amicable way for all parties.”

While neither Logan nor the rest of the world know exactly what’s going on, it looks like the youngest Paul brother has a healthy support system in place as fans watch and wait for further information regarding one of YouTube’s biggest scandals to date.

TikTok star Zoe Laverne under fire for allegedly kissing underage fan

TikTok star Zoe LaVerne is facing massive backlash after multiple videos surfaced of her allegedly kissing an underage fan. This comes days after leaked Instagram conversations from her ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt raised concerns of “very intense” interactions with an underage influencer.

A video on the ‘Def Noodles’ account featured a short clip showing the two. It was apparently only a short form of a much longer video showing more instances of the same behavior.

According to Def Noodles, LaVerne previously denied allegations of having a relationship with an underage person. This was in direct response to the allegations brought by Orlove’s hacked messages.

The video comes at a sensitive time for LaVerne, who was already getting heat for Orlove’s Instagram messages with VanPelt.

Zoe LaVerne once again removed herself from Instagram after the latest allegations.

In them, Orlove’s leaked exchange shows that he “left (LaVerne) because of her interactions with Connor. They got very intense and it’s something I do not stand by whatsoever. It’s p**dophillia.”

Another message, this time from Orlove to LaVerne, shows he cut communication from her. “My lawyers will handle the rest,” he said in reference to the “toxic” breakup between the two TikTok personalities.

LaVerne, who deleted her Instagram in mid-September in response to a separate lip-syncing debacle, once again removed herself from the Facebook-owned social platform.

In a private fandom account known to be run by LaVerne, she gave a message to her fans for her renewed hiatus from Instagram after the videos came out.

“Thank you for everything, really,” the account called ‘zlpfandom0.2’ wrote. “But for right now I don’t think I’ll be back on soial media again. I (still) have a lot to think about. I reall don’t wanna leave you guys but I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of crying and hurting. It’s nothing but negativity to me anymore. I love you so much.”

LaVerne has over 17 million followers on TikTok and nearly 450,000 subscribers on YouTube. She’s been featured in TikToks and videos with other online celebrities ranging from Terin Sottile and ex-boyfriend Zephan Clark.

If the move offline is permanent, it’s not known if LaVerne will publicly respond to the latest videos that are surfacing.
