TikTok Star Justine Paradise Accuses YouTuber Jake Paul Of Sexual Assault
TikTok star Justine Paradise posted a 20-minute YouTube video on Friday accusing Jake Paul of sexual assault. She said in the video that he forced her to perform oral sex on him at his Team 10 house in California in July 2019.
Paradise said she signed a non-disclosure agreement before coming to Paul’s house, which made her think that “she wasn’t allowed to” talk about anything that happened in the house.
Paradise said she first met Paul in June 2019 through a mutual friend. She recalled that the two began texting and hanging out in the weeks following their meeting. Paradise said one day while she was at Paul’s house, he pulled her aside and kissed her.
“I was fine with that. I did think he was cute,” she said.
Paradise said he led her to his bedroom where they starting kissing and dancing before he moved it to his bed. She said he began placing his hands on her in places she did not want him to touch. When she told him no, she said he responded, “if nothing’s going to happen, what’s the point?”
“Sex is very special and very important to me,” she said. “Normally, everybody respects me when I don’t want to do sexual things, so I thought that it was fine if I went in his room. I thought it would be fine to kiss him, because I thought he would stop if I didn’t want to do anything else.”
She said things continued to escalate despite her telling him no, and Paul eventually ended up on top of her. He allegedly forced her to perform oral sex, she said.
“He didn’t ask for consent or anything,” she alleged. “That’s not okay. On no level at all is that okay.”
She said after the incident, Paul acted cold towards her and speak to her. She said she tried to reach out to him “to talk to him and tell him, ‘Hey, I didn’t consent for this. It made me feel so awful,'” but he didn’t answer her texts.
“I never got an apology or anything like that,” she added. “I would have liked to have an apology because that was messed up, and I didn’t want that.”
Paradise said at the end of her video that she hopes Paul realizes why what he did was “messed up” and that he doesn’t do it again.
“I know he knows that I didn’t want to do anything sexual with him,” she said. “I’ve thought about this literally every single day since it happened. But the more and more I think about it, the more I realize, no one can be doing that and think that it’s something right to do.”
Paradise shared a TikTok on Friday explaining that she wanted to talk about this for a long time, but she was nervous about receiving hate.
“But also, I know it is necessary to share this information with everybody, so it could maybe like, it could save someone that could be in my position in the future,” she said.
