Floyd Mayweather Slams Jake Paul After TikTok Star Accuses Him of Sexual Assault (VIDEO)
YouTube star Jake Paul is denying the sexual assault allegations made against him by TikTok personality Justine Paradise.
On Friday, Paradise released a video detailing how the YouTube personality and boxer allegedly forced her into having oral sex in July 2019 at his Team 10 Calabasas, Calif. residence.
“Our client is aware of the recent allegation against him,” Paul’s attorney Daniel E. Gardenswartz told Fox News on Tuesday. “While others have already begun to debunk the claim alleged against him, our client categorically denies the allegation and has every intention of aggressively disproving it and pursuing legal action against those responsible for the defamation of his character.”
“Our client believes that any false allegations diminish the credibility of those who have truly been victims of misconduct,” it concluded.
Paradise said she consented to “kissing” Paul, thinking he “would stop” if she “didn’t want to do anything else.” She says Paul wouldn’t stop and continued to make sexual advances.
“Sex is very special and very important to me,” Paradise said via MMA Fighting. “Normally, everybody respects me when I don’t want to do sexual things, so I thought that it was fine if I went in his room. I thought it would be fine to kiss him, because I thought he would stop if I didn’t want to do anything else.
“He didn’t ask for consent or anything. That’s not okay. On no level at all is that okay.”
Paul shared a statement on Twitter denying everything.
“Sexual assault accusations aren’t something that I or anyone should ever take lightly, but to be crystal clear, this claim made against me is 100 percent false,” Paul wrote. “Not only have I never had any sexual relationship with this individual but this claim is solely a manufactured accusation and a blatant attempt for attention during a highly visible fight week. Make no mistake, I plan on pursuing this defamation of character case to the fullest extent of the law. There are irreparable damages from these types of accusations and more importantly false allegations of this nature diminish those who have truly been victims of misconduct.”
“Again this individual is directly using the attention from her social media posts and video to promote her adult content website and Amazon shopping list — designed for people to buy her gifts. These allegations come conveniently for her, almost two years after the alleged incident and the week of my fight (of course.)”
“At the time of her story, I was in a relationship and as someone who was a momma’s boy growing up, I respect women and mothers more than anything. I most certainly have never laid a finger on a girl without their consent. I will fight this to the end to prove my innocence. This isn’t the first preposterous allegation made against me in my career and it most likely won’t be the last. As someone who has lived in the spotlight since the age of 16, dealing with liars, fake news and false accusations unfortunately is a part of this job. I won’t back down from it and years from now my character as individual will show and shine through these dark moments.”
Floyd Mayweather couldn’t wait to trash him as he ripped into the star on Instagram.
“The kid is so thirsty, he harassed a minor,” Mayweather wrote on Instagram. “Some people don’t understand the word NO!!! He must don’t know they’re locking everybody up quick for stuff like this. It was just a matter of time. Tik….Tok.”
