We all know Team 10 (AKA Jake Paul‘s social media empire) has a strong bond, but that doesn’t mean all the members are there to stay. People are constantly in and out of the squad these days, and Alex Lange is the latest one to make his departure. The web star took to YouTube to announce that he’s leaving Team 10 and assure fans that there are exciting things to come from him.

“Team 10 has been my family for the past two and a half years of my life, and I saw it grow into what it is today. So, as you guys could probably tell, this wasn’t really an easy decision to make. But after talking it through with the Team 10 family and others close to me, we all decided that it was the best next step for everyone. It’s something I spent a lot of time thinking through, and I’m finally ready to share,” he said.

Alex went on to explain that more social media content is in his future – along with acting.

“The time has come for me to move on and move my career in another direction. Now, regardless of that, you may still see me collaborating with a few members from time to time on some special projects. I must say that I am really looking forward to the new direction that I’m taking and the opportunities on the horizon to carve my own path,” Alex added.

He continued, “I’m very, very excited for what’s to come. I’m going to start posing a YouTube video two, three times a week consistently – as well as spending more time focusing on pursuing acting. I’m also working on a bunch of little projects here and there for you guys.”

Despite the fact that a ton of drama revolves around Team 10, there isn’t anything juicy to share this time. It’s just a decision he was ready to make.

“There’s no crazy drama or gossip behind it. It’s simply a decision to move in a new direction,” Alex continued. “I’m always going to look fondly on my memories with Team 10, and I appreciate their support.”

Sounds like there are some big things in store for Alex, and we can’t wait to follow him as his career continues to evolve.
