Internet personalities Jake and Logan Paul’s father has been in the news for a number of controversies. What is known about him and their mother?
Logan and Jake Paul are two famous brothers who got their start on the now-defunct video app Vine, used to be everywhere on the internet in the late 2010s, creating prank videos, bad rap songs and nonstop controversies.
Both Jake and his elder brother Logan Paul are very close to each other and they support and encourage themselves.
While even those who aren’t well-versed in YouTube-born celebrities still know the names Logan and Jake Paul, most of them probably had no idea that their dad, Greg Paul, has quite the social media following too. His fame hasn’t been without its controversies, though.
In a recent discussion, the brother called their dad a “menace” and following that, many want to know more about their parents. Read on for more.
Who are Jake and Logan Paul’s parents?
Jake Paul and Logan Paul were born on January 17, 1997 and April 1, 1995 respectively, to parents Gregory Allan Paul and Pamela Ann Stepnick.
They were raised in Westlake, Ohio in the United States of America.
The famous brothers are of English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Jewish, French and German ancestry.
They are currently not married anymore as they divorced years back.
Paul’s father, Gregory Allan Paul happens to be a social media sensation, a former realtor and a commercial roofer. He was born on October, 28th, 1963 in Westlake, Ohio and currently 58 years old.
His mother, Pamela was also born in 1963 in the United States of America. She worked as a nurse at UHHS Westlake Surgery Center and many other medical centers. She owned a YouTube channel “Vlogmom” with about 725k followers which gave her a lot of attention on the internet.
What is Jake and Logan Paul’s parents net worth?
While there are no exact figure about the fortune of Jake and Logan Paul’s parents, Gregory Allan Paul and Pamela Ann Stepnick have an estimated net worth of $1 million (maybe each).
Jake and Logan Paul referred to their dad Greg as “abusive” and a “menace.”
In August 2023, Netflix released a new episode of their Untold documentary series that focused on Jake, called Jake Paul the Problem Child.
In the doc, Logan called their dad a “menace.” He said that Jake likes to throw around the term “abusive” when talking about their dad, whereas Logan prefers the phrase “not quite legal.”
“Jake is still traumatized to this day about how my dad treated him,” Logan claimed.
Meanwhile, Jake said that his dad used to slap them around, but that he understands why his father did it and doesn’t “resent” him for it.
Greg, for his part, said in the doc that he was hard on the boys but never hit them.
Jake even credited his dad for his and his brother’s successes, saying that “he was so hard and so tough on us that my brother and I’s imaginations really started to flare up. So one day we get a camera, and we just start filming our lives.”
In the past, fans accused Jake and Logan Paul’s dad Greg of being “creepy” and kissing an underage girl.
In 2018, Shane Dawson’s YouTube series “The Mind of Jake Paul” tried to do a deep dive into what makes Jake Paul tick. Along the way, he spoke with therapist Kati Morton, who discussed at length the topic of sociopaths — and the possibility that many of the famous faces you watch on YouTube might suffer from some sort of personality disorder.
Shane also discovered that anti-social personality disorder was more common among first-degree biological relatives, meaning that if you have someone in your family with the disorder, you are more likely to have it. While Shane made it clear that he was not calling Jake a sociopath in his video series, viewers were convinced something was to blame for Jake’s erratic behavior — and Jake’s family was the focus of Part 3 of the eight-part YouTube doc.
Fans quickly pointed the finger at Jake’s dad, who was called creepy on more than one occasion. “Damn Jake Paul’s dad is a bigger embarrassment to this city than he is,” one fan tweeted. Another added, “Yeah don’t even get me started on the dad he’s creepier than any of them.”
Also in 2018, Greg was hacked by a group called Digital Gangsters, who leaked sex tapes allegedly starring Greg. “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.”
Greg denied that there are inappropriate videos of him with minors. “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, Shane did feature a clip of Greg kissing a young girl in his series that made followers really uncomfortable. “How can I unsee what I’ve seen about Jake Paul’s dad,” one fan simply wrote. That clip is actually from a video on Jake’s page titled “Kissing Contest,” where Jake and his dad were competing to see who was the better smoocher.
In the video, Greg asked for a woman who was over the age of 35, but ultimately settled with a definitely not 30-something Alivia Marie — she was legal at the time, FYI. However, at 21 years old, she was over three decades his minor. And spoiler alert: Greg was the winner.
