YouTuber Jake Paul got a rude awakening this morning after the FBI raided his Los Angeles home, serving a federal search warrant.
According to multiple reports, federal agents ascended on the influencer’s massive Calabasas mansion early this morning, but it’s unclear what they are looking for in his house.
The search warrant is reportedly sealed so investigators are not revealing why they are combing through the YouTubers items.
“The affidavit in support of the search warrant is sealed and we are, therefore, prohibited from commenting as to the nature of the investigation,” a spokesperson for the FBI said.
The incident comes just two weeks after Jake had a raging party at his estate, which sparked a huge backlash for the lack of masks and social distancing.
Several videos of the party went viral, and it didn’t appear most guests were taking the proper precautions to stop any spread of COVID-19.
According to ABC 7, the Mayor of Calabasas expressed outrage over the large get-together, which took place in the middle of a spike in the death rates of the virus.
The mayor said a group of residents complained after seeing, “tons of people walking on the street unmasked and then gathering. I was very upset that somebody would hold such an outrageous gathering in our community,” she said.
She continued, “We’re trying to do everything we can to get our numbers down and keep our community safe, and something like this just does the opposite.”
It should be noted, it seems a bit far fetched that the FBI would be raiding the home of a YouTuber for throwing a large party, especially if the only issue was the use of masks.
Also, Jake Paul was recently charged in Arizona for a looting incident inside of a Scottsdale mall. JP was cited for ‘Criminal Trespass’ and ‘Unlawful Assembly’ after an investigation revealed he was in fact in attendance at the ‘unlawful’ event.
Again, it’s unclear how any federal investigation would be connected to a local case in Arizona.
Investigators are still on the scene of the raid, it’s unclear if Paul was home at the time.
