Jake Paul Exits Disney’s Bizaardvark Days After Neighborhood Scandal
Jake Paul didn’t seem too bothered by the thought of getting sued by his neighbors for basically making their street a living hell. The 20-year-old said he felt bad for causing a ruckus in the Team 10 house, but didn’t think there was anything he could do to make the problems stop. LOL. While the former Viner hasn’t actually gotten in any legal trouble for being annoying (yet), something quite interesting (and very coincidental) did happen over the weekend — he announced his departure from Disney Channel’s Bizaardvark.
Although many people assumed Jake’s exit was a result of his recent neighborhood scandal, the network released a statement that said the decision was mutual.
“We’ve mutually agreed that Jake Paul will leave his role on the Disney Channel series Bizaardvark,” a spokesperson for Disney Channel said. “On behalf of the production company, the cast and crew, we thank Jake for his good work on the TV series for the past 18 months and extend our best wishes to him.”
The YouTube star also spoke out about the major career change, basically saying that he chose to leave so he can have more time to dedicate to growing his “personal brand” and getting “more adult acting roles.”
Love you all! Thanks for the support
Can't wait to continue to grow and conquer

The whole thing seems pretty darn fishy if you ask us — the timing is just SO coincidental, you know? But who knows — maybe this was the plan all along!
