Jake Paul helping victims of Houston floods

Jake Paul has been coined the ‘worst neighbor’ for making loud noises as he shoots his goofy YouTube videos at his West Hollywood home.

In July a police officer let the former Bizaardvark star know how much he is disliked as she gave him a ticket for sitting in his car outside his mansion as he waited for a pal.

But it looked like the blonde goofball is trying to clean up his image as he has gone to Houston to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston.

On Friday he wrote on Instagram: ‘This breaks my heart.. this is one of the many families evacuating their homes in Houston.’ The image was a family in the rain.

‘The Hurricane is now hitting Port Arthur.. if you’re anywhere near there please evacuate immediately.. also, If you look closely the girl in this picture is wearing a Team 10 shirt… This is heart breaking… This is why we are here ground floor in Houston… there are tons of people & tons of families & Jake Paulers who need our help & rescuing.’

He added: ‘This makes me want to work all throughout the night to save people. 

Not fun: YouTube sensation Jake Paul was ticketed by police for waiting outside his home in his car on Sunday 

‘Today we pulled 8 people out of their homes & got them to safety. We are doing everything we can but we still need your help.. & any help we can get ground floor on Houston.. pls send prayers & pls donate to any fund or cause that you can.. thank you.’

This comes after he was given a ticket for $400 for sitting outside his home. The prankster wore a red hoodie and looked to be upset as he glanced at his ticket.

He was in a grey four-door sedan with tinted windows as a female officer approached him.

It is not uncommon for streets in his West Hollywood neighborhood to have No Stopping Anytime signs as the area is very congested. 

There was a crowd of fans outside his two-story home, which he accidentally released the location of on one of his YouTube videos.

This ticket comes the day after he tweeted that he had outgrown Disney and will no longer play Dirk on the Disney Channel’s Bizaardvark. He was on the show for two years.

‘My team, Disney Channel, and I have come to the agreement it’s finally time for me to move from the Disney family and Bizaardvark,’ Paul said in the statement posted to his Twitter. 

The YouTube star, who is famed for his ‘crazy’ pranks which have included throwing a Harley Davidson in his backyard pool and setting furniture on fire, said that ‘being a part of the Disney family for the past two years was incredible and a dream come true.’

The network also released a statement thanking Paul for his work. ‘We’ve mutually agreed that Jake Paul will leave his role on the Disney Channel series ‘Bizaardvark,’ the statement read.

‘We thank Jake for his good work on the TV series for the past 18 months and extend our best wishes to him,’ the statement added.  

The star made headlines when families in his LA neighborhood accused him of turning their lives into a ‘living hell’.

And while his 8.5 million young followers may be impressed with his antics, his neighbors are not. 

Paul and his ‘squad’ love to throw rowdy parties, while he often publicizes his address which allows hoards of his young fans – he calls ‘Paulers’ to show up outside his home.

‘It used to be a really nice, quiet street and now [it’s] just this, like, war zone,’ Maytal Dahan told KTLA. ‘We’re families here and we’re more than happy to have them live here if they’re respectful of their neighbors, but they’re not.’

Neighbors are even considering banding together to file a class-action public nuisance lawsuit against Paul and the homeowner. They say not only is Paul annoying but he’s dangerous.

His fire stunt, when he set ablaze furniture in his pool, saw flames reach the height of the home.

He also released  'rap' song, 'It's Everyday Bro,' which became the tenth most disliked video in YouTube history

Meanwhile, Paul seemed amused by the misery he is imposing on those around him.

‘The neighbors hate me,’ he told KTLA, laughing.  

When a reporter told him that locals fear he has turned the neighborhood into a ‘circus’ with his non-stop parties and dangerous stunts, the millennial replied: ‘But, I mean, people like going to circuses.’

Paul was then seen running and skipping through the streets before climbing on top of the KTLA van – ignoring the pleas of staffers to stop. 

He has since taken to taunting his neighbors on Twitter, posting footage of his KTLA interview with a laughing emoji, and the caption: ‘I’m dead.’

In Paul’s YouTube bio, he described himself as living ‘a crazy life’ ‘making comedy vids, acting, doing action sports, & going on crazy adventures’ with his squad ‘Team 10’.

He also released a laughably bad ‘rap’ song, It’s Everyday Bro,’ which became the tenth most disliked video in YouTube history.

Earlier this year, Paul landed himself in trouble after he filmed himself hiding in the bathroom of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building after attending a Social Media Event at the White House.
