Sui Forest Controversy
The YouTube star, Logan Paul, decided to spend the New Year in a completely different way than other people. He spent the last hours of 2017, shocking the 15 million followers he had at that time and many other people in the world with a disgusting video he posted on his YouTube channel.
The 15-minute video was called “I found a body in Japan’s Sui Forest” and as the title suggests, Paul found the body of a person who ended their life. He captured the breathless body in his video as well. The American vlogger, at the age of 22, had no problem showing the body hanging from a tree in the Japanese forest, located in Mount Fuji.
The authorities stopped making the cases of those who end their lives in that forest public, in order to try to reduce the number of victims. Besides this, there are signs in the forest with messages suggesting people suffering from such problems ask for help before resorting to such drastic actions.
Unfortunately, Paul completely ignored the seriousness of the situation and many believe that he used this aspect to gain even more fame.
Because of the shocking content, the vlog went viral, garnering over 6 million views and half a million likes before it was deleted.
After these events, Paul realized the huge mistake he made and apologized to his fans for the morbid video he posted: “It was supposed to be a funny vlog.” “[This] is not a joke. Depression and mental problems are not a joke. I came here with the intention of discovering the ‘haunted’ aspect of this forest. This has become very real and obviously, a lot of people go through many unfortunate events in their lives,” added Paul.
Despite this scandal, the channel continues to bring Paul a good profit – about $1 million a month. He has a huge house in California and a car collection. The vlogger travels a lot, combining vacations with filming videos for his channel.
Logan Paul Sues Floyd Mayweather
Logan Paul claims that he did not receive the money for the fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. from June 2021 and that he will sue the American boxer.
The fight between Floyd Mayweather and the star Logan Paul lasted for 8 rounds, and in the end, no winner was declared because neither of them knocked their opponent out, as stipulated in the contract. Floyd would have received $65 million from the fight, while Paul should have received just over $5 million.
The YouTube star says he didn’t get all the money he was due. “No, he didn’t give me everything. It’s a fact, a few million are missing. We will discuss this in court. See you in court. Congrats, you’re going to jail, Floyd,” Paul said.
As for the family, Logan is not married and, according to him, does not expect to get into a serious relationship yet. For a while, Paul dated actress Chloe Bennett, but they broke up.
In May 2020, Logan started dating the model Josie Canseco, who is the daughter of the baseball legend Jose Canseco.
The vlogger continues to play sports. He is engaged in boxing and even participates in fights, where he looks good as a fighter.
