Logan and Jake Paul forced to hire 24/7 security after Floyd Mayweather threatens to 'kill' YouTuber in huge brawlMay 12, 2021
LOGAN PAUL and brother Jake have hired round-the-clock-security following Floyd Mayweather's threat to 'kill' The Problem Child.
Former four-weight world champion Mayweather came to blows with Jake last week in Miami after the YouTuber stole his hat.
In the immediate aftermath of the melee, which left Jake with a black eye, a fired-up Money said: "When I catch you, motherf****r, I'll kill you motherf****r! You crazy?!"
And the Paul brothers are taking Mayweather's threat very seriously.
When asked if he and his sibling have beefed up their security, Logan told TMZ: "Yeah [we're taking precautions]. Everywhere at all times.
"Dawg, when you have a guy with the resources and the wealth that Floyd Mayweather has and the connection and the network and he's saying, 'I'mma kill that motherf***er.'
"Kill?! Death?! You're gonna kill my brother over a f***ing hat?!
"Yo, we take that s**t seriously man!"

Mayweather, 44, is set to face the elder Paul brother in a exhibition match on June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
Jake also wants to get in on the action on the same night, a desire he revealed in a heated exchange with Mayweather before their brawl.
But Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe insists no such thing will happen.
He told TMZ: "Realistically, he could. But no, from a business standpoint, no.
"Him and Logan are gonna have a great exhibition on the 6th of June and the whole world will be entertained."
Ellerbe, however, has refused to rule out the possibility of Mayweather one day sharing the ring with Jake.
He continued: "Who knows? Who knows what the future might hold.
"But right now we have a huge, huge event it's the biggest event of the year in the sport of boxing and we're just really, really excited."
Jake is itching to test himself against the undefeated Mayweather but wants their clash to be a professionally sanctioned bout.
He told SunSport: "I don't want to do exhibitions and I think that's the difference between Floyd and I and even my brother and I.
"I want legitimate pro fights that are sanctioned, I want to build my pro record.
"I don't think Floyd would actually fight me outside of an exhibition as he doesn't want to risk his record.
"Maybe if we can come to some kind of agreement around that, I'd fight Floyd. But I'm not doing like the circus, exhibition s***."
