TikTok’s famous Hype House is descending into chaos, after star Daisy Keech announced she was suing fellow creators Thomas Petrou and Chase Hudson — but YouTuber Logan Paul isn’t too invested in the drama.
Keech explained that although she put down a significant amount of money on the Hype House’s deposit, she and many other creators in the media collective were left out of important business decisions.
That’s not all; Keech also revealed that Petrou would often make huge decisions on the creators’ behalf, explaining that she felt “disrespected, degraded and used.”
The drama has since risen to the top of social media controversy, a topic that made its way to Logan Paul’s ImPaulsive podcast on March 31.
Having been a subject of ample controversy in the past, Paul is no stranger to internet drama — but his own experiences as a target of worldwide vitriol have somewhat jaded him to the Hype House’s current conflict.
“I attempted to invest my energy into both of them, but neither of them had enough weight for me to really be able to sink my teeth into,” he said of both the TikTok turmoil and iDubbbz’s response to his angry fans.
That’s not all; Paul also revealed that he advised the TikTok group during their legal battle, claiming that he’d encouraged them to handle their beef outside of social media.
“I told that to both sides of the Hype House,” Paul began. “Because I’m friends with both sides. I told them both, my overall advice is like, ‘Yo, lowkey, who gives a f**k?’ ...I think it’s something you can definitely handle offline. I don’t think it’s big enough to be able to make public.”

“Not to compare, but I’m used to some real drama, drama that shook and rippled the internet,” he continued, referencing his own international controversy from early 2018 in Japan’s Aokigahara “Suicide Forest.”
With both Petrou and Hudson facing legal action from Keech over the matter, TikTok fans the world over are waiting for further developments from drama that has rocked the viral video platform to its core.
