YouTube star Logan Paul threw down with rival KSI in the net’s most anticipated boxing rematch of the year – and it looks like the online celebrity is putting his fight money to good use.

While Paul might be known for his sprawling mansion in Encino, California and the souped-up bus seen in his videos, the “Maverick” mogul has splurged on yet another huge purchase.

Rather than spending racks on designer apparel, though, Paul bought a sprawling ranch, which he discussed in his comeback episode of the ‘imPaulsive’ podcast on November 20.

Logan Paul, InstagramYouTuber Logan Paul has acquired the infamous Fobes Ranch of 1960s fame.

According to the YouTuber, he’d offered the sellers $1,000,001 as a joke – an amount they accepted, finding it humorous.

“If I’m gonna be honest, it’s the greatest thing I’ve ever purchased,” Paul said of his new ranch. “I paid one million and one dollars for this ranch. That was my offer and they accepted it, ‘cause they thought it was funny. They sold it to us, and we spent the weekend up there for the first time.”

Despite being his “favorite spot” on the planet, there appears to be a major issue with the property, considering that it’s allegedly haunted.

“There’s a lot of great stuff to do at the ranch,” he continued. “…I want to do a proper reveal video, but there’s just one problem we discovered. It might be severely haunted. By the way, I went there with an open mind. I said, ‘Haunted?’ It was owned by the hippie mafia. They’re ghosts of eternal love!”

Paul’s experience with these “ghosts” comes as little surprise, considering the property he purchased is the infamous Fobes Ranch – a locale previously owned by late Harvard professor Timothy Leary, who helped ran an LSD operation at the ranch with the nicknamed “Hippie Mafia” group in the 1960s.

Officially dubbed “The Brotherhood of Eternal Love,” Leary and crew produced an LSD strain called “Orange Sunshine” using a machine that created tablets of the drug before law enforcement raided the group in 1972.

With both Leary and Paul standing as controversial public figures, his acquisition of the ranch comes as a slightly ironic twist – although whether the property is actually haunted or not remains to be seen.

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
