Jake Paul is no stranger to stardom. The notorious YouTuber-turned-boxer has amassed followers and haters alike. His ascent to superstardom has brought him several celebrity friends, one of whom is Drake.

The younger Paul brother dropped a photo on Instagram on New Years Eve (December 31). Jake posed alongside Drizzy an an NYE party. He captioned the post, “Happy New Year.”

The 24-year-old has had a massive 2021, thanks to his three fights that brought him hundreds of thousands of dollars. But his boxing antics have invited criticism from purists and fans alike.

The YouTube star also called out UFC head honcho Dana White and said he was ready to retire from boxing and step into the Octagon against Jorge Masvidal – provided Dana accepted his demands.

“Here is a real challenge for you,” Jake told the UFC president before sharing an image of an iOS note with his demands. Dana has since responded to Jake by asking him to test for steroids and “start your own promotion.”
