Paul went out on Friday night after his boxing bout against Hasim Rahman Jr was cancelled.
A video on social media showed Paul getting physical with Aaron Steinberg, also known as “Stein.” at a club.
Steinberg is a part of the NELK Boys. They are a group of streamers that established the popular Full Send brand and have amassed 1.22 billion channel views overall.
In the footage, Paul can be seen standing over Steinberg as he is on the floor and grabbing his wrists. Paul is wearing a blue cap.
Although most of what is said can’t be made out due to background noise, Paul seems to yell “say you’re sorry” to Steinberg.
Given that Paul and the NELK team were said to be in separate locations, “KEEMSTAR” was originally dubious about the video’s authenticity when he shared it on Twitter on Sunday.
However, he then learned via a text that the altercation really did happen on Friday night and relayed that information. This was the message: “It is Steiny. Happened in Miami three nights ago… sorry, happened on Friday.”
Paul is in the midst of launching a new brand. Jake Paul and Simplebet co-founder Joey Levy have raised US$50 million to advance their vision for the ‘TikTok-ification’ of sports betting with the launch of micro-wagering platform Betr.
Betr will initially launch as a free-to-play product before eventually accepting cash wagers in US states where it has the necessary licences.
To assist with the rollout, Betr has also hired Alex Ursa, who was previously head of product at FanDuel, and Mike Denevi, previously head of media at Bleacher Report.
“I wasn’t into sports betting until I was introduced to micro-betting,” said Paul, who will serve as president of Betr. “Micro-betting is the TikTok-ification of sports betting and I am excited to bring it to the masses through Betr.
“We are in this for the long haul and are focused on doing things the right way. We are getting licensed state-by-state, adhering to each state’s regulatory framework while advocating for important consumer protections and responsible gambling. We want to be the category defining consumer company in both sports betting and sports media by the end of the decade and are confident we will achieve that goal.”
