Jake Paul facing legal action by man claiming he was victim of beatdown during post-Nate Robinson party
While Jake Paul had much to celebrate following his viral knockout against Nate Robinson in November, the aftermath of the victory may be coming back to bite him sooner than later. Paul has set himself up for an advantageous career in the boxing world, but he’ll have to clear his way through some legal issues first.
According to documents obtained by TMZ, Paul is now being sued by Gabriel Dos Santos, a man claiming that he was jumped by Paul’s entourage at an afterparty following the Paul-Robinson fight.
The documents state that Paul’s crew was kicking people out of the party, which eventually led to Santos being jumped on by Paul’s crew. While it remains to be seen as to what Santos will be seeking as compensation following the incident, it’s safe to say that he’s on the lookout for a huge payday given Paul’s popularity as a YouTuber.
Be that as it may, Santos and his lawyers aren’t hopefully going for the juggernaut based off of Paul’s earning from the Robinson duel. Both Paul and Robinson reportedly walked away with just $600 from their highly anticipated match, though both parties clearly earned more from other avenues circulated around the bout.
As for Jake Paul, he may want to tell his guys to play it safe from now on following the outcome of the case. He’s still in the midst of working out negotiations with Conor McGregor in hopes that a fight can take place soon next year. His brother, Logan Paul, is set to take on Floyd Mayweather in February.
