Jake Paul's huge house party slammed by the mayor of Calabasas
16 July 2020, 17:14
Social media footage from inside Jake's party – which was actually a music video shoot – shows hundreds of people without masks hanging out inside his house.
In case you forgot, coronavirus is still with us. After 4 months with lockdowns all over the world, and social distancing measures still in place, the virus is still here and it's still affecting people's lives.
Apparently, Jake Paul doesn't seem that bothered by it anymore, judging by the amount of people he hosted at a house party/music video shoot in his Calabasas mansion last weekend.
In footage that was shared on social media, including on Tana Mongeau's TikTok, Jake and his guests are shown ignoring multiple social distancing and stay-at-home guidelines that are still set in place in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas.
Now, the mayor of Calabasas has slammed him for his irresponsible actions.
Over the past few weeks, Los Angeles has seen a huge increase in COVID cases. After attempting to begin the reopening process, multiple businesses such as indoor dining and salons have now been ordered to reclose.
It goes without saying that a house party (or a music video shoot, if that's what you wanna call it) with that many people is probably not a good idea given the shocking rise in cases.
Multiple videos surfaced of Jake's gathering, including one that shows massive groups of people hanging out inside his Team 10 home, as well as large crowds in the backyard playing beer pong and... watching other people hang from a digger!? The majority of guests were also not wearing face masks.
In a recent Logan Paul vlog, Jake and Logan discuss the music video shoot as Logan drives his car into the Team 10 house. Literally, through the front door and into the house. You can see the car being used in the shoot in the video below.
NEW: The mayor of Calabasas & neighbors tell me they’re outraged after they say YouTube celebrity @jakepaul threw a massive party at his mansion on Saturday. They call it irresponsible, selfish, & say it’s businesses & workers who pay the price for this w/ lockdowns. 10pm @FOXLA pic.twitter.com/COiVleuDH2— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) July 15, 2020
Several frustrated neighbors contacted me this morning and shared their own videos of the party. Calabasas’ mayor tells me she’s working with the Lost Hills Sheriffs station to ensure a zero tolerance policy on house parties from now on, no more warnings.

Speaking to FOX News, the mayor of Calabasas, Alicia Weintraub, said she was "outraged" by the videos.
“They’re having this large party, no social distancing, no masks, it’s just a big huge disregard for everything that everybody is trying to do to get things back to functioning,” Weintraub said. “It’s really just a party acting like COVID does not exist, it’s acting that businesses aren’t closed.”
Following Jake's party, the Mayor has now said that she is working with the Sheriff's station to make sure that no gatherings like this happen again in the near future.
Jake Paul has yet to respond to the backlash or Mayor Weintraub's comments.
