What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas...but apparently not for Jake Paul! The YouTube star found himself in some drama the other day (or, rather, he started the drama himself). It all began when Jake and his crew were in Las Vegas to attend a boxing match, which was a big celebrity event, apparently. Zayn Malik also happened to be at the match, and while we don't know exactly what went down between Zayn and Jake, things got dramatic very quickly.

In a series of now-deleted tweets, Jake expressed some serious anger towards the former One Direction singer. "Almost had to clap up zane from 1 direction because he is a little guy and has an attitude and basically told me to f--- off for no reason when I was being nice to him..." Jake began his tweet. "Zane ik you're reading this...stop being angry cause you came home alone to your big ass hotel room hahaha." Though Jake is clearly calling Zayn out directly, so far the singer has not made any comments about the tweets.

One person who did comment on Jake's tweets, however? Zayn's supermodel girlfriend, Gigi Hadid! In a messy (and hilarious) turn, Gigi responded to Jake's initial tweet directly: "Lol cause he doesn't care to hang w you and your embarrassing crew of YouTube groupies ..?" Gigi began her response tweet, which has not been deleted. "Home alone with his best friends like a respectful king cause has me, sweetie. Unbothered by your irrelevant ugly ass. Go to bed ..." Clearly, you do not want to mess with Gigi's man!

The YouTuber seemingly responded to Gigi's tweet, though not directly, writing: "Bro he literally starting yelling and freaking the f--- out. 'You wanna test me mate.' Lol I feel bad for childhood stars," Jake tweeted. Well, now both this tweet and Jake's inital tweet have been deleted, and it seems that he has a few regrets about them. Today, Jake tweeted, "someone needs to take my phone when i'm drunk because I am f---ing idiot." Again, he didn't directly say this in regards to the Zayn drama, but since he deleted his previous tweets, it's safe to assume that that's what he's talking about.

Gigi's tweet remains up, and it doesn't seem like she has any intention of deleting it or further commenting on the situation. Between Jake's live-streamed marriage to Tana Mongeau (and subsequent separation) and his cringey tweet about anxiety, he's certainly not a stranger to embarrassing himself in the public eye. It looks like he didn't want to pursue the drama and felt it was best to take back his diss -- and honestly, that was probably a smart move on his end!
