Jake Paul accused of sexual assault by TikTok star Justine Paradise
The YouTuber Jake Paul has been accused of sexually assaulting TikTok star Justine Paradise at his Los Angeles home in 2019
The TikTok star alleges Paul grabbed her by the face, before forcing her to perform oral sex on him. She also alleged that he touched her inappropriately without her consent.
Paradise, 24, made the allegations on a YouTube video, which was posted on her channel on 9 April.
She warns viewers of the content of her video in the caption, entitled: "TRIGGER WARNING: Jake Paul Sexually Assaulted Me."
Paul has not yet responded publicly to the allegation.
In the 20-minute-long video, Paradise, who has more than 10,500 subscribers to her Youtube channel, said that she waited years to speak publicly about the alleged assault as she signed a non-disclosure agreement, which was reportedly required of any guests who went to Paul's house.
The TikTok star said that she first met Paul in June 2019, after being invited to his house by a mutual friend.
Paradise said that on a particular day that summer, Paul allegedly pulled her into the corner of his studio and started kissing her, which she said she was fine with as she "did think he was cute".
The YouTuber then allegedly led Paradise to his bedroom, where they started to kiss until "he took it to his bed."
According to Paradise, Paul proceeded to put his hands in places that she was not happy with. She claimed she moved his hands away, which allegedly prompted Paul to question: "If nothing’s going to happen, what’s the point?"
In the Youtube video, Paradise said: "Sex is very special and very important to me. Normally, everybody respects me when I don't want to do sexual things, so I thought that it was fine if I went in his room. I thought it would be fine to kiss him, because I thought he would stop if I didn't want to do anything else."
Paradise alleged that Paul then forced her to perform oral sex on him.
She said: "He didn't ask for consent or anything."
"That's not okay. On no level at all is that okay," she added.
Paradise said that Paul allegedly stopped replying to her text messages following the incident.
