The attorney says Paul is taking this "very seriously."
This past weekend, YouTube sensation Jake Paul hosted a birthday party for rapper Desiigner in a Calabasas, California mansion. The place was crawling with celebrities and heavily supplied with liquor, but there have been accusations that a handful of attendees were drugged while there. The first of the allegations came from a woman who shared in a private Facebook group that her daughter "ended up in the hospital with eight other girls who had been drugged and ended up at West Hills Hospital incoherent."
"A big warning to those with teenage daughters," the woman wrote. "My daughter was at a party in Calabasas last night for YouTuber Jake Paul. The house was a mansion filled with young people. She ended up in the hospital with eight other girls who had been drugged and ended up at West Hills Hospital incoherent. Something was put in their drinks. The girls were all half naked and unable to walk or talk."
"They were made to sign a disclaimer at the door," she continued. "I'm sharing this in hopes that you will talk to your teens and young adults. I'm sharing this in hopes to help someone. I will be reporting this to the authorities." Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Lt. Jennifer Seetoo that one person who claimed to have been drugged at the party has filed a complaint. The Los Angeles County Fire Department reportedly pulled a post-and-delete on Instagram where they said they "spent the majority of Saturday night transporting multiple patients from a party thrown by YouTuber @jakepaul."
Buzzfeed News reports that an anonymous representative for Paul told them the social media star hired Arman Izadi to plan the $500,000 party for him. Izadi reportedly has quite the reputation as he's previously faced robbery, kidnapping, pimping, and assault-related charges. The unnamed representative also said that Paul had nothing to do with drugging anyone and was never around unconscious individuals.
"We take this claim [of guests being drugged] very seriously," Paul's attorney, Stanton "Larry" Stein, said. "And we are working with authorities to make absolutely sure we do our part to uncover the truth."
