Police were called to the Los Angeles mansion of YouTuber Logan Paul last night, after two ‘stalkers’ reportedly broke into the estate and vandalized a car.

LAPD officers, backed up by a helicopter, arrived at the scene at around 10pm, after the 23-year-old vlogger’s security staff allegedly caught two people having jumped the gate.

Images from the scene shows a black SUV outside Logan’s $6.55 million Encino mansion with ‘Paul’ and ‘Vlog on YouTube’ scribbled across it in white spray-paint.

Paul’s videos, however popular, often attracts controversy. The most notorious incident occurred after he uploaded a video on December 31, 2017 of an apparent suicide victim in a Japanese forest. 

The video quickly drew an intense backlash from fans, celebrities, politicians and other YouTubers, resulting in Paul’s removal of it and a subsequent apology on Twitter.

YouTube condemned the video and removed him from Google Preferred, its preferred ad program, and also halted the production of one of his films for the video-sharing platform.

Paul later pledged $1 million (£759,100) to suicide prevention organizations and resumed posting videos on February 4, 2018 after a month-long hiatus.

Logan Paul’s net worth is estimated to be about $14 million (£9.8m).

He is scheduled to visit the UK later this summer, as he is due to take on British YouTuber KSI in a boxing match.

The two social media stars, who have traded insults and trash talk for months, are scheduled to face off in Manchester on August 25. 

Logan Paul has been contacted by MailOnline for comment on the events.
