Jake Paul threatens to 'expose' bitter rival KSI ahead of fight with Alex Wassabi as YouTubers feud continues | The Sun

JAKE PAUL threatened to "expose" bitter rival KSI as the pair got embroiled in an ugly social media spat.

KSI is returning to the ring to face Alex Wassabi on August 27 for the first time since beating Jake's brother Logan in 2019.


The Brit called Jake a "c***" while appearing on Logan's podcast earlier this year – and couldn't resist taking another shot at the Problem Child on social media on Tuesday morning.

Paul, 25, posted a promo for his upcoming August 6 bout with Hasim Rahman Jr, offering: "$1000 (£831) to someone who like & retweets this tweet".

KSI quote-tweeted the post, writing: "Don’t think we don’t see how desperate this looks 😂😂😂😂.

"No one cares, so you gotta pay to create hype lmao."

"You didn’t care about the platform that made you who you are. Constantly denouncing it.

"I never did. I’m happy to say I’m a YouTuber to this day because now I can do/be whatever I want.

"I’m thinking long term my guy. You failed at this."

This prompted Paul to mock him, with the American writing back: "Imagine saying: 'yes u made $45m but i’m a youtuber and i’m proud!😩😔'"

KSI calmly replied: "My YouTube channels: Sidemen YouTube channels. Sides, XIX Vodka, Music/Tours, Prime hydration, Adidas, Misfits Boxing…

"Think about it Jake."

This prompted Paul to tweet: "This dude is pushing 30 years old flexing his collection of YouTube channels 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣."

KSI hit back: "All your eggs in one basket. And still can’t sell out your fight."

Paul finished the exchange by tweeting: "Out of respect for Alex I won’t expose you. But you know what’s going on.

"You know what you and your team have asked me to do to help sell your “fight”. You need me to build your hype.

"I advise your opponent. Let that sink in."
