YouTube star Logan Paul has reflected on his past experiences of meeting his ‘heroes’ in the industry and how some have left him disappointed.
On the True Geordie Podcast, Paul was asked if one of his heroes had ever disappointed him, to which he replied with a story about Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
Paul explained that after the events of Japan, he received a call from his publicist informing him that Johnson wanted him to remove all videos and pictures of the two of them together, as he no longer wanted any association with Paul.
Paul went on to say that he understood Johnson’s decision that he has had things happen in his life where that incident has affected him in a personal way
In 2017, Logan Paul caused controversy when he uploaded a video of himself and his friends in the Japanese forest known as Aokigahara – more commonly referred to as the ‘Sulcide Forest’.
The location has a tragic reputation, as it is notorious for the high number of bodies that are found there; some Japanese citizens go to the forest to end their own lives.
In an Instagram post from 2018, Dwayne Johnson – better known as ‘The Rock’ – shared a heartfelt story of his own mother’s attempt to take her life.
Paul also talked about giving away 90% of his wealth in the same interview, ‘The Maverick’ revealed his plans for the future after the successful launch of his Prime Hydration Drink in the UK this week.
KSI and Paul have put aside their differences and instead traded in their boxing gloves to create a successful product. Paul expects his shares in their new business to reach $5 billion in the next few years.
He continued,”I anticipate that I will likely give away or return approximately 90% of my wealth. Generational wealth is not something that concerns me; if I raise my children correctly, they will be able to create their own wealth and will not need to rely on my money.”
Logan Paul added that he is still young and wishes to live a lifestyle befitting of a billionaire, one that allows him to make imprudent decisions and spend his money as he pleases.
