YouTube star Jake Paul trended online earlier this month after reports surfaced that the FBI had raided his home.

He released a statement, calling the reports "absurd," but did confirm that he had been raided.

"Just to clarify things and set the record straight, the FBI raid is entirely related to the Arizona looting situation that happened," Paul said. "It's an investigation. There are rumors about it having to do with so many other things that have nothing to do with me or my character and the sh*t that people are making up is absolutely absurd." 

"That being said, when I become aware of someone around me who is doing malicious things they are immediately cut out of my life. I don't put up with bullsh*t, I don't surround myself with bad people. If someone does something bad, they will be removed from my life," he added. 

In June Paul was charged with unlawfully entering and remaining inside the Scottsdale Fashion Square mall in Arizona when it was closed during the George Floyd riots.
