Dramageddon: Which problematic YouTube star has the highest net worth?
There’s a lot of money to be made in the world of YouTube, and the best part is you don’t even have to be a good person to succeed in it! There is a slew of popular YouTube personalities who have been able to skate their way to nine figures or more, thanks to the popular content creating platform which has inevitably led to many sponsorships for some of these household names. Might this be the secret to boosting one’s net worth?
But with fame & money comes a price, as we all know. Egos grow as does power, and money can oftentimes only make things worse. But just which problematic Youtube stars have the highest net worth amongst their peers? We’re just as itching to find out as you are.
David Dobrik is a twenty-two-year-old YoutTube star who launched his own YouTube channel in 2015, uploading a wide range of videos from scripted bits to actual situations played out in real-time. In 2016, Dobrik launched a second channel, David Dobrik Too, where he posts more sponsor-friendly videos, featuring bloopers and challenges for fans of the Vlog Squad. Today, David Dobrik has over 18,900,000 subscribers on YouTube.
Why is Dobrik problematic? In February, only a week after Dobrik was called out by Nick “BigNik” Keswani, former Vlog Squad member Seth Francois claimed that Dobrik forced him to kiss Jason Nash without his consent. As well, the Vlog Squad creator has also been accused of being the center of a social circle filled with creeps, a claim which forced the YouTube stat to post not one, but two apology videos on his account.
The future is unclear for David Dobrik, but his net worth is as clear as a freshly Windexed window, coming in at an impressive $20 million as reported by Celebrity Net Worth.
Twenty-six-year-old Logan Paul is known for his problematic past, most of which he had decided to film and put on his YouTube channel. Nothing was more shocking than his 2017 video of visiting Japan’s “suicide forest” to which he and his friends came across a dead body, hanging from a tree. It was a notorious moment amongst the YouTube community, giving Paul the long label of “biggest @$$hole on YouTube”.
However, While Logan Paul still has his fair share of mishaps, he has managed to clean up his image and devote much of his time to professional boxing, much like his younger brother and fellow YouTube star, Jake Paul. Logan Paul is actually scheduled to fight the legendary Floyd Mayweather here in a few months, which should be considered as fair atonement as he’s likely to get his butt whooped pretty bad.
Today, it is estimated by Celebrity Net Worth that Logan Paul has a net worth of about $19 million, surely enough money to finance his expected move to Puerto Rico from his mansion in Encino, California.
Twenty-four-year-old Jake Paul is the younger brother of Logan Paul as well as the creator of Team 10, a once content-creating juggernaut similar to that of Dobrik’s Vlog Squad. Jake Paul, who has made recent headlines after being accused of sexual assault by TikTok star Justine Paradise, has too had his fair share of controversies throughout the years, including being caught on camera at a looting event last year in Arizona.
Paul, who is aspiring to be a professional boxer, has quite a bit of money attached to his name, as Celebrity Net Worth estimates the content creator to be worth about $20 million dollars, just beating out his big bro and tying David Dobrik if these estimations are accurate.
