Jake Paul has always been in the limelight for all the wrong reasons, yet has managed to maintain a somewhat successful career thanks to the internet.

But it seems Floyd Mayweather has had enough - and he got the whole internet talking with a clip of the altercation this week...

It makes for a pretty shocking watch...

But who is exactly suprised? Given Paul's long history of controversy and all.

There's no doubting his success seen as the twenty-four-year-old YouTuber currently has over twenty million followers on the platform.

And that fact is just beyond me considering he's one of the worst reality villains, according to The New York Times.

Paul is no stranger to controversy.

It's gotten so frequent that he seems to have substituted every single one of his personality traits for being an absolute jerk.

It all started back in 2017 when he first made the headlines.

Back then he only had 8.5 million followers, and yeah, to us normal folk that might seem like a lot, but compared to the twenty million he has now.

However, straight off the cuff, he was accused of being arrogant and disrespectful to his neighbors.

A local news channel in West Hollywood reported on his crazy antics, saying that, along with his friends, he had managed to infuriate their neighbors so much that they were discussing the possibility of filing a lawsuit against him.

That didn't phase Paul, though...

“The neighbors hate me," he said proudly after mocking a reporter’s shoes. He claimed he had turned the street into a circus, responding: “I mean, but people like going to circuses, right?"

However, Maytal Dahan, who lives on the street, thought otherwise.

"It used to be a really nice quiet street and now we’re just this war zone," he claimed.

And even after the news spread, Paul decided to take to Twitter to call out the people bashing him.

He decided to tell us there were innocent people "getting shot" out there and we shouldn't be focusing on him. Thanks for the advice, Jake.

And because of his attitude to the entire situation, his contract with Disney hung in the balance.

And his other feuds with other giant YouTubers such as PewDiePie saw him gain more haters than fans and before you knew it, he became the king of unnecessary beef online in order to keep himself relevant.

At one point, he even started a fight with his own brother, Logan Paul.

But no one really paid enough attention because his older brother is just as big of a jerk as he is.

You don't believe me? Well, I'm sure you'll remember this incident...

Logan Paul was involved in probably one of the biggest YouTube controversies when he decided to take a trip to a Japanese Forest known for its haunting roots.

While filming a vlog there, he stumbled across a frightening sight...

Aokigahara forest is known for its high suicide rates, so you would think one would stay away from such a location, but instead, it peaked Logan Paul's interests and after a quick flight, he and his cronies embarked on a journey to find something "haunting."

Instead, they found a suicide victim...

And rather than cutting the cameras and calling the emergency services, as any normal person would, they kept their devices rolling and filmed the lifeless body while cracking a few jokes here and there.

He then edited the video and uploaded it to his channel.

That's right, he decided to share such a sensitive moment with his millions of followers, but YouTube quickly removed the clip as it violated many guidelines.

So, I think we've established that the Paul's are both very problematic.

But honestly, in recent months, Jake has been by far the worse of 2 evils.

He's recently made a rather bizarre career change.

Pivoting away from his usual content creation and... Music?

Yes, he wants to become an MMA fighter.

And his career so far has been controversial to say the least.

Paul first called out none other than Conor McGregor for a fight.

"My team is talking to his manager but that's all I'll say," he said.

"It's gonna be legendary. I'm gonna win, too! That's what I want people to understand!"

"I'm gonna dedicate my life to winning that fight because I'm not going in there just to say I did it -- I'm going in there to f**k Conor McGregor up."

But this weekend, someone hit back at Jake.

... Literally.

Floyd Mayweather is set to battle Jake's brother Logan in the ring soon.

But it was Jake who decided to antagonize him...

The pair were spotted beefing at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

Then Jake grabbed Mayweather's hat.

Big mistake.

Mayweather then absolutely whacked Paul in the face.

Jake has reportedly been left with a black eye and busted tooth.
