The stalker who had trespassed upon popular YouTuber Logan Paul’s home back in February 2018 has now received jail time for repeated offenses.

The trespasser, named Tahj Deondre Speight, has been hit with a 45-day jail sentence and will remain on probation for two years.

Speight was caught illegally entering Paul’s home back in February by the YouTuber himself, who made a citizen’s arrest and subsequently filed a restraining order against the stalker due to fear of potential bodily injury. 

Logan also claimed that Speight had been seen at the home of his brother Jake in Match, where he had been also been arrested for trespassing.

Logan even vlogged his initial encounter with the stalker, in which he admitted to being severely shaken up and scared that he and the others in his home could have been harmed.

The incident had occurred shortly after Paul’s controversial trip to Japan, during which he recorded and uploaded a video of a deceased person in the country’s infamous Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest.’

Speight had since attempted to illegally access Logan’s home three more times in early June, where he allegedly claimed that he was the “Antichrist” when questioned by security personnel.

The restraining order that Paul has filed against Speight is valid for five years and requires the offender to stay at least 100 yards away from him at all times, including his residence, place of business, and personal vehicles.

The Paul brothers will now feel safer that their encounters with the stalker are over, assuming that he does not break the terms of his probation.

Thomas Petrou slams Bryce Hall’s accusations of stealing from Hype House

TikTok stars Thomas Petrou and Bryce Hall have sparked quite the feud after Hall accused Petrou — co-founder of the Hype House — of stealing money from his own content creators.

It’s no secret that the Hype House and the Sway House aren’t on friendly terms, with the two getting into a fierce beef throughout this past year (remember that time the Sway boys drove to the Hype House to confront Chase Hudson?).

While Hall has confirmed that their feud with the Hype House is definitely real, it seems that he’s going “full send” on his distaste for the group by accusing co-founder Thomas Petrou of outright stealing money from the HH’s content creators.

During an interview with Tom Ward on October 8, Hall made some serious claims about Petrou’s business practices, stating that he’d “stolen” money from the TikTokers working underneath the content collective.

“I’ll say it — he steals money,” Hall stated. “He steals money from those kids. These kids are — I love a lot of people in the Hype House, but they are not the smartest people. …maybe not now, because I haven’t talked to them in four or five months, and maybe somebody said something to him, but he, at the beginning, was stealing money for sure.”

Hall’s claims didn’t go unnoticed; Petrou responded to the accusations shortly thereafter, denying having ever stolen money from those in the Hype House in a pointed Instagram reply on a tea page.

“That’s a complete lie,” he wrote. “I’ve never taken a percentage of anyone in the Hype House. Ask everyone who’s a part of it. The whole reason I started this was to help the people around me make sure they weren’t getting taken advantage of by their managers and agents.”

Thomas Petrou denies Bryce Hall's allegations of stealing money from Hype House creators.

This isn’t the first time Hall has struck out at Petrou in recent days, either; the Sway House TikToker also slammed Thomas’s spending habits, claiming that he “spends his money like an idiot” on pricey cars instead of saving up wisely.

For now, it doesn’t look like there’s any love lost between these two social media stars as things continue to escalate between two of TikTok’s biggest creators.
