YouTuber and actor Jake Paul has made a career out of being generally obnoxious. The over-top-shenanigans he used to film himself doing — including hosting dirt bike races and lighting fires at his Los Angeles rental home — got him fired from the Disney Channel and sued by his landlord. He once wrote a diss track about teachers and reportedly tried to coax his young followers into buying subscriptions to his influencer-education program.
But the YouTube prankster claims he left his “problem child” stage behind when he sold his Southern California home and moved to South Florida to train for his new career in professional boxing. It seems Paul has truly embraced the stereotypical Miami lifestyle, and not just because he’s partying on yachts and hosting maskless bashes.
Now, Paul is joining Miami’s ranks of venture capitalists with an enterprise called Anti Fund with co-founder and investor Geoffrey Woo. The two made the announcement yesterday on social media.
