Jake Paul, the 20-year-old YouTube celebrity who has turned his Beverly Grove neighborhood into a "living hell", has broken ties with Disney. For the past 18 months, Paul has starred in the Disney Channel series Bizaardvark, which chronicles two friends trying to build a comedy YouTube channel. The network announced Saturday that he would no longer be returning to production on the show, which is currently airing its second season, according to Deadline Hollywood. Disney did not confirm whether his neighborhood troubles have any influence on the decision to part ways. In a statement, a spokesperson for the network said "[w]e’ve mutually agreed that Jake Paul will leave his role on the Disney Channel series Bizaardvark."

Paul posted to his Twitter account in response, addressing the 1.82 million "Jake Paulers" who follow him online:

This isn't the only repercussion Paul is facing for his neighborhood war-zone. CBS reports that Paul has allegedly received an eviction notice to leave his Beverly Grove rental. His neighbors are also "planning to meet with city officials and police to discuss a possible class-action public nuisance lawsuit," according to Teen Vogue. LAPD receives approximately one complaint per day about Paul's antics, but he has yet to do anything illegal so they haven't acted on the complaints, according to CBS. He has been throwing parties, doing stunts in an empty pool, and disseminating his address publicly, which has brought hoards of fans to the neighborhood and disrupted the lives of his neighbors.
