The Sway House is one of the most famous groups on TikTok, with tens of millions of followers between them as they find their feet with their new-found celebrity status.

Content houses have been a thing for as long as online content has been a money-spinner. Now, with a new generation of adolescents and young adults taking over and making millions from TikTok, they’re becoming ever more popular.

The Sway House is a group of young men that have taken residence in a fancy Bel Air mansion, in an area usually preserved for celebrities and the super-rich and, as you can imagine, this has caused somewhat of a stir among residents.

The Sway House has caused some controversy in their quiet Bel Air street.

When member Bryce Hall calls himself and his fellow Sway members “Party Animals,” he clearly means it, as evidenced in recent interviews with some of his neighbors.

Speaking with the New York Times, Sway’s neighbors have explained what kind of people have moved into their street – and the trouble they’re causing.

Their neighbors immediately next door, including U.C.L.A law student Mindy Acevedo, have filed complaints against the group. She said: “In the morning, we hear paintball guns. I don’t think they sleep. Whenever they’re hanging out by the pool, the sound just carries. We can hear them shouting ‘chug, chug, chug.’ I’ve heard someone throwing up at night outside.”

This sounds like a standard student lifestyle, but it seems like this kind of behavior isn’t exactly commonplace in the neighborhood they inhabit.

Neighbors also say that the area has transformed into what “feels like Coachella,” with random girls passing through regularly, including turning up at the wrong houses, causing concern for residents on the street.

Some people mentioned the “zombielike” nature of fans waiting outside the house.

Neighbors say that they have contacted the Los Angeles Police Department more than once to make noise complaints, though Warren Lentz, the group’s talent agency TalentX’s CEO, says that to their knowledge, there have been no formal noise complaints.

They also claim to have contacted Sway members about the noise and issues arising from their residence, with Acevedo claiming that she contacted Bryce Hall to warn him she was going to make another formal complaint. His response, allegedly, was to simply ask her: “Aren’t you the babysitter?”

With concerns about swatting, doxxing and harassment, a number of the Sway neighbors claim that they’re worried about the possible repercussions of trying to sort things out with the Sway house. For now, unfortunately, it seems the neighbors’ issues are simply going to continue.

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
