So why was Jake Paul banned from vlogging in his house?
According to documents seen by YouTube news channel Keemstar, Jake Paul and the rest of the team 10 house have received numerous fines from the City of LA fire department, after evidence of "fire/life safety violations" were taking from YouTube. The document states that nobody in the team house can deliberately or negligently set fire to combustable materials in a way that could harm others around them, following previous fire incidents including the burning of a mattress and setting fire to a countertop.
Jake Paul responded to the news by saying "I'm just trying to be a kid," and "I even have a cute puppy so how is that even possible."
With Jake Paul banned from vlogging in the Team 10 house, what will the Team 10 do next?
Nick told the team that they'd have to film elsewhere. Jake's most recent vlog was shot in a hotel in Miami, suggesting that Team 10 really are taking this notice seriously.
