Jake Paul denies sexual assault claims after Justine Paradise accusation

Jake Paul has denied sexual assault claims made by TikTok star Justine Paradise.

The American, who is preparing for the third fight of his professional boxing career against ex-UFC star Ben Askren on April 17, was accused by the social media influencer last Friday.

Speaking on her YouTube channel, the 24-year-old accused the blogger of forcing her to perform oral when they met at his Los Angeles house in 2019.

She said: “He didn't ask for consent or anything. That's not okay. On no level at all is that okay.”

And Paul has now responded by denying the sexual assault accusations made against him.

Writing to his 3.8m Twitter followers, the YouTuber said: “[Sic] Sexual assault accusations aren’t something that I, or anyone should ever take lightly, but to be crystal clear, this claim made against me is 100% false.”

The brother of Logan Paul went on to suggest that Paradise was part of a plan.

He added: “Not only have I never had any sexual relationship with this individual, but this claim is solely a manufactured accusation and a blatant attempt for attention during a highly visible fight week.

“Make no mistake, I plan on pursuing this defamation of character case to the fullest extent of the law.

“There are irreparable damages from these types of accusations, and more importantly, false allegations of this nature diminish those who have truly been victims of misconduct.

“Again, this individual is directly using the attention for he social media posts and video to promote her adult content website and Amazon shopping list – designed for people to buy her gifts.”

Paul continued: “These allegations come conveniently for her, almost 2 years after the alleged incident and the week of my fight (of course).

“At the time of her story I was in a relationship, and as someone who was a momma’s boy growing up, I respect women and mothers more than anything.

“I most certainly have never laid a finger on a girl without their consent.
