Looks like former MMA champion Ben Askren isn’t the only thing Jake Paul is knocking out.
The multimillion-dollar California mansion that the controversial YouTube star bought in 2017 when he was just 20 years old has been sold for $6.15 million.
Paul, now 24, spent the height of his career living in the home where he launched and hosted Team 10, described as a “unique incubator for aspiring social influencers.”
Made up of eight bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, the Calabasas property sold for $775,000 less than what he paid for it in 2017. Factor in taxes, hefty real-estate-agent fees, renovations and four years of upkeep, and the total loss amount likely swells deep into seven-figure territory.
But it doesn’t look like Paul is sweating it much. After he pummeled Askren with a first-round knockout Saturday night, he took to social media to brag about the profits the fight made.
“1.5 million PPV buys, $75 million generated,” he wrote, alongside a picture of him holding a stash of one-hundred-dollar bills.
Paul’s initial salary before the game was $690,000.
The YouTube-star-turned-boxer moved to 3-0 with his victory over Askren.
Spanning over 15,000 square feet and situated on 3.5 acres of land, the property gates open to a long tree-lined driveway that leads up to a motor court. Upon entry, two-story front doors made with iron rods open into a three-story foyer with a spiral staircase.
Features of the home include multiple living rooms, an office, a gym, a theater and an attached two-bedroom, two-bathroom guest house.
The chef’s kitchen boasts an expansive stone-topped center island with all stainless steel appliances.
Other amenities include a master suite complete with a massive stone-filled bathroom, two custom walk-in closets and a private balcony overlooking the grounds. The backyard hosts several patios, a pool with multiple water features, a sap, two grills and outdoor dining spaces.
Speaking of his move from the West Coast in December, he said it was “one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made,” adding that there were too many “distractions” in Los Angeles, and he would opt for Miami instead to focus on his goal of becoming a “legitimate pro fighter.” Paul initially moved to the state at just 17 years old following his success with the now-defunct app, Vine.
While taking on the boxing world, Paul made headlines with an FBI raid at his home last summer, a fake marriage to fellow influencer Tana Mongeau, and constant house raves amid COVID-19.
