Important Things To Know About Logan Paul The Controversial YouTuber

Logan Paul is an American actor and internet sensation who first gained fame from posting videos on Vine, a former video sharing website. In 2015, he was ranked the 10th most influential figure on Vine. Following the shutdown of Vine, Paul migrated to Facebook and YouTube to create and post his content.

Logan Paul’s journey to fame began at 10 years old when he began creating videos for Zoosh, a YouTube channel. Away from social media, he is also an actor who has guest appeared on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and Weird Loners. He also starred in The Thinning and The Space Between Us. Read on to find out more about this internet star, including his several controversies, net worth and every other thing you need to know about him.

The early years of his life

On the 1st of April 1995, Logan Alexander Paul was born. Growing up, he attended Westlake High School where he qualified for the Ohio High School Athletic Association 2013 Division I Wrestling Individual Championship.

After high school, he proceeded to Ohio University where he majored in Industrial Engineering before dropping out in 2014. That was in spite of pursuing his studies with an academic scholarship. After dropping out of school, he went into a full-time career as a social media entertainer in Los Angeles where he resides.

He found success in his chosen career of choice; from 2014 through 2017, Logan Paul got nominated for Shorty Awards, Streamy Awards, and Teen Choice Awards. In 2017, he won the 2017 Teen Choice Awards for Male Web Star and Comedy Web Star.

Who are his family members?

Logan Paul is speculated to come from a close-knit family. His mother, Pam Stepnick, is a registered nurse, while his father, Greg Paul, is a realtor. He has a younger brother, Jake, who is also an actor and a YouTube personality, with whom he grew up in Los Angeles.

Net Worth

Logan Paul, whose six-second videos on Vine netted him hundreds of thousands of dollars in ad revenue, is said to be $3 million in estimated net worth. With a net worth like that, it’s no wonder the Youtube Star appears to have a penchant for flamboyance; he once rented a mansion at Beverly Grove for $17000. He currently resides in Los Angeles and is said to own a 2014 Dodge Challenger.

Is Logan Paul Gay?

On the 9th of January 2019, during an episode of his podcast Impaulsive, the social media star reportedly said one of his New Year Resolutions was to do a trial and go gay for a month to know how it feels. Unsurprisingly, this not only sparked controversy but it also kick-started the gay rumors. To stir the suspicion further, he later invited an LGBTQ activist, Josh Seefried, with whom he had a discussion on the matter on his podcast. Logan Paul reiterated his point by saying that being gay was cool to him, a comment that didn’t go down well with Seefried.

Now, Logan Paul is not new to controversy; in November 2017, he released his single, Handlebar, which caused a public outcry for portraying women as sexual objects. He deleted the song from his YouTube channel soon after. He also once posted a video of the remains of a man who had committed suicide; this was strongly criticized for insensitivity. He later deleted the video and apologized.

As for his current sexual orientation, it’s not yet publicly known whether he made good on his gay resolution; but considering his history of heterosexual relationships, he is largely assumed to be straight.
