It all began when the former Bizaardvark star uploaded a video in which he accused FaZe Banks of assaulting his assistant, while at a nightclub in Los Angeles. The social media star explained in his vlog that he made the video to bring awareness and to make sure everyone was watching out for one another.
After sharing the video with his millions of subscribers, Alissa became aware of the incident and began sharing her own side of the story. The social media starlet tweeted out, “The REAL truth is about to come out. Should've never lied. Tornados coming.”

She and FaZe Banks issued their own video about the incident, which included Taylor Caniff. In their vlog, they state that not only is the police now involved in the handling of this matter, but that they also believe members of Paul’s Team 10 set up the situation.
Alissa also went on tweet, “Absolutely sickening what these kids will do for views and subscribers.”

After the video by Alissa and FaZe Banks was shared amongst their followers, Jake suffered a massive drop in subscribers. He was close to hitting 10 million, but has gone on to lose over thousands of fans.
Jake also went on to issue a formal apology for all the other controversies he’s been involved in as of late. He wrote, “I’ve learned now that the things I do & say can affect people so deeply… & that I need to continue to be more mindful of the things I’m saying & how they affect others.”
“It’s crazy how powerful words are… what people have said to me & how it’s affected me… to what I’ve said to others & even things I’ve said from when I was a lot younger affecting others… I am making it a principal of mine to be conscious of my words at all times & to not use cheap insults as a form of comedy or even in my day to day verbiage,” he continued to write.
Thank you to anyone who supports me & the Jake Paulers! Let's change the world❤️ pic.twitter.com/piyz693DuB— Jake Paul (@jakepaul) August 18, 2017
There’s no word if this is at all connected to the matter with Alissa and her boyfriend. Since the authorities are now involved with the situation, it’s unknown whether or not the outcome will be made public. Though one thing is for certain, this is far from over.
