Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul might seem like he’s all about being in the public eye – but the social media star is now begging overzealous fans to stop showing up at his house uninvited, following two counts of trespassing by a single groupie.
According to reports by TMZ, a fan had shown up to Paul’s home in Encino, California two days in a row – prompting the YouTuber to call local law enforcement and even file a trespassing report.
Reports state that the trespasser attempted to gain entry to Paul’s property on both Sunday afternoon and Monday night, ringing his front gate and trying to hop the fence before being told to beat it.
“Don’t show up to my house, please, don’t,” Paul pleaded in an interview with TMZ. “I love my fans, but my house is the one place I feel like I can kinda get away and be private.”
However, Paul isn’t completely shying away from unexpected visits, should they involve fighting or boxing for his YouTube channel, as seen when he was approached by an Ivan Drago impersonator during a May 28 vlog.
“If you wanna come and box, no problem!” Paul continued. “If you wanna come and box, please, come. You’re gonna get knocked out.”
These latest incidents are far from first time Paul has had to deal with trespassers: the YouTuber performed a citizen’s arrest on yet another trespasser in February 2018, who broke into his home and passed out on his sofa.
Paul had another run-in with a random visitor on May 28, when an Ivan Drago impersonator and prankster showed up to his residence to film a prank video of his own – ultimately resulting in a knockout in Paul’s backyard boxing ring.
While Paul might have an illustrious YouTube career despite his multiple scandals, the social media star is looking to turn away from the platform, announcing on May 29 that he hopes to pursue a career in full time fighting.
Although UFC president Dana White has denied Paul any chance of stepping into the octagon, the YouTuber is preparing to face off against rival KSI for their rematch in November 2019 – but no specific date nor venue have yet been revealed for the bout.
