Jake and Logan Paul’s father Greg Paul has a huge following on social media much like his sons. However, this has not come without its controversies.
In 2018, Greg was reportedly hacked by a group called Digital Gangsters. This group released s*x tapes allegedly involving Greg with underage girls. “We wanted to see how far we could go [with the hack], we obviously got pretty far,” the hackers told The Daily Dot. “We don’t really like him, we don’t like the Pauls.”
Apparently, faces were not revealed in the pictures and videos that were released. There was no way to confirm that it was in fact Greg and that the girls were underaged.
Greg, on the other hand, denied any such claim. “The haters and the hackers spreading rumors that I’ve been with underage women is a bunch of bull, it’s never happened and it’s 100 percent not true. There’s no supporting evidence and there never will be and the reason there never will be is because it never happened,” he said in an Instagram video.

He continued: “If anybody even tries to say anything to that effect in any way, shape, or form they’re just doing it for views just like they are right now. The other things for you haters, how bad does your life suck? How bad does your life suck? You wake up and you want to throw shade and hate on people you’ve never met, who’ve never done anything to you.”
However, YouTuber KEEMSTAR has claimed that it was in fact, Greg as per Dexerto. According to the YouTuber, the headboard of the bed in the video released by the hackers matched that of Paul’s as seen in other videos. No further comments were made by the Pauls regarding this story. However, it is important to mention that Greg was not found guilty of any of the claims made against him.
Greg Paul kissed a girl considerably younger than him for a YouTube video
In a YouTube video uploaded on Jake’s channel titled ‘Kissing Contest’, the father and son duo competed to see who is a better kisser. In the video, Greg said he would kiss women above the age of 35. However, reports suggest he kissed a girl named Alivia Marie, aged 21.
Greg divorced the mother of Logan and Jake, Pamela Ann Stepnick when they the YouTubers were yet to find fame. Pamela also has a huge online presence. She got married again in 2004.
Greg Paul was allegedly “abusive” toward his children Jake and Logan Paul
Jake and Logan Paul have a very unusual relationship with their father. They claimed that he was abusive. However, they still credit him for their success.
The 26-year-old, Jake, directed allegations toward his father in a Netflix documentary about his life. He said his father used to slap him and Logan has said that their father was “a menace.”
Greg, who is also a part of the documentary, denied the claims. He said he “never laid a hand” on his sons but admitted to throwing them “on a couch couple times.”
WWE star Logan, on the hand, says Jake is “still traumatized to this day about how my dad treated him”.
“And they still don’t get along like they should.
“Jake may throw around the word abusive, I prefer not quite legal.”
Jake, however, has also said that he does not resent his father. Both the brothers then went on to credit their father for their huge online success.
