YouTube star and boxer Jake Paul has been accused of sexual assault by TikTok star Justine Paradise. 

In a video posted on her official YouTube page, Paradise alleges that Paul sexually assaulted her at his Team 10 house in 2019. 

Paradise alleges that Paul took her into his bedroom and forced himself onto her. 

"I thought it would be fine to kiss him, because I thought he would stop if I didn't want to do anything else," she said in the video. 

Paradise also alleged that Paul got on top of her and forced her to perform oral sex after she had said she didn't want to. 

"I know he knows that I didn't want to do anything sexual with him," she said. "I've thought about this literally every single day since it happened. But the more and more I think about it, the more I realize, no one can be doing that and think that it's something right to do."

Per Gabrielle Chung of People, a representative for Paul did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the allegations. 

In 2017, YouTuber Alissa Violet, who lived with Paul, said on YouTube that Paul assaulted her on multiple occasions while they lived together, including spitting on her and dragging her down a flight of stairs.

In 2018, Violet told Shane Dawson for his The Mind of Jake Paul docuseries that Paul was mentally and emotionally abusive toward her.  "I can’t even remember a conversation where it was like, me walking away feeling good about myself," she said (h/t Dexerto.com).

Violet was said to be Paul's girlfriend for a period of time, but she told Dawson the two never had a relationship and that Paul told her he just wanted a "YouTube girlfriend."

Paul, 24, is best known as a YouTube personality. Since the start of 2020, he has also ventured into professional boxing with two wins in his first two fights.
