YouTube star Logan Paul is one of the platform’s biggest content creators, boasting over 21 million subscribers and a successful podcast — but it seems that not everyone is a fan of the “Maverick.”

Despite being an internet sensation-turned-professional boxer, Logan Paul isn’t everyone’s cup of tea — namely, American singer-songwriter Ariana Grande, who he discovered had blocked him on Instagram during a May 19 episode of his ‘imPaulsive’ podcast.

In an attempt to pull up her Instagram profile for a quick discussion on the current drama surrounding Grande, Justin Bieber, and rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine’s Billboard dispute, Paul claimed he could’t find her account.

Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber’s “Stuck With U” Has reached the number one spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 – a triumph that rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine claims was “bought” by the two stars.

The star even pulled up his own Instagram search results on the big screen for the entire cast to see, which showed that her verified profile wasn’t appearing among the other accounts.

In an effort to double-check his search query in case there was a malfunction on his end, Paul clicked on Grande’s profile after a quick Google search, which resulted in a page that read, “Sorry, this page isn’t available” — the signature response from a profile that has blocked a user.

“Oh my god!” imPaulsive co-host Mike Majak exclaimed. “That’s a block!”

Logan Paul pulled up his Instagram search results for his audience to see, and was shocked to discover that Ariana Grande had, indeed, blocked him on the platform.

“Shut up, shut up!” Paul cried. “What? Come on! …holy s**t, there’s no way Ariana Grande blocked me on Instagram! There’s no f**king way! Why?”

After debating why the singer had blocked him, Paul reminded viewers that she had once retweeted a Vine of himself singing one of her songs, and had even praised him on his rendition of the tune.

“Bro, way back in the day… she retweeted a Vine that I made, singing her song,” he explained. “And then she said some nice things. It’s sad to see that our relationship has gone to s**t, I guess. It was good, me and Ariana. We had a good thing going. Now, I guess, we’re no longer friends.”

While Paul and crew never got an answer as to why Grande had blocked him, it certainly made for an entertaining start to the imPaulsive podcast’s 185th episode — and potentially shed light on a new celebrity beef, in the process.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
