A New York Times story published earlier today outlines a number of allegations against Jake Paul, including two instances of sexual misconduct.
In one instance, Jake faced accusations of sexual assault earlier this month from TikToker Justine Paradise. In a video, she alleged that Jake sexually assaulted her at his Team 10 house in California in July of 2019.
“In a situation like that, there was nothing I could do,” Justine told the Times.
“I was physically restricted, and I felt emotionally restricted afterwards to even say anything about it," she continued. Justine further added she plans to file charges against Jake.
When Justine went public with her allegations, Railey Lollie — a model and actress who began working with Jake Paul when she was 17 — replied to Justine's TikToks about the incident, saying that "something similar happened when I was filming with him in 2017 and I was a minor."
Speaking to the New York Times, Railey alleged that Jake groped her one evening after filming a video together. He ran away after she told him to stop, and Railey quit shortly afterward.
“I was with Jake for months," Railey told the Times. "I saw what kind of person he was behind the scenes and what kind of person he put out to the rest of the world.”
If you or someone you know has experienced sexual assault, you can call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-656-HOPE, which routes the caller to their nearest sexual assault service provider. You can also search your local center here.
