Jake Paul has spoken out about his father Greg's new role in Team 10.
Reports that Greg Paul had become an influential figure on the business side of the social media group have been circulating for a few weeks, with an anonymous source claiming just last week that he was behind a number of controversial sackings just last week. While Greg and Jake had initially not responded to these reports, Jake finally spoke about the matter after Nick Crompton publicly accused Greg of verbally abusing staff and firing people without warning.
But nobody had an issue with you auditing? People had issue with being verbally abused, watching their coworkers be fired around them and not being kept in the loop. Business 101, communication. Everytime you publicly post to try make myself or the team look bad, I will respond. https://t.co/Pif3Us4Shi— Nick Crompton (@TheNickCrompton) May 10, 2018
Speaking in a vlog, Jake explained why Greg's prominence within Team 10 had grown
Acknowledging that Greg's presence was partly responsible for "friction in the [Team 10] family," Jake revealed that he was encouraged to bring Greg on board by a group of business advisors.
"A couple of them [advisors] advised me to bring somebody on into my corner, who wholeheartedly wanted nothing else but to protect me, who didn't care about my money, who I could 100% trust no matter what," Jake explains in his vlog. "The only person I could think of... was my dad."
Clarifying that his dad isn't running his business, Jake said Greg's role was to "look over the shoulders of other people who were in my businesses, who I'm entrusting to run my businesses."
Jake went on to say that while growing his business, he's needed to be aware of people "possibly doing things that I as a person don't necessarily agree with," hinting at some conflict within Team 10.
