YouTuber Jake Paul’s Calabasas mansion was searched by the FBI under a federal search warrant related to an ongoing investigation on Wednesday, the agency confirmed to Insider. 

A representative for the FBI’s Los Angeles division said that the warrant affidavit is sealed, which prohibits the agency from commenting on the investigation. 

The news was first reported by TMZ, which included photos of a law enforcement vehicle approaching the Calabasas home. 

Paul, 23, has recently come under fire for flouting social-distancing measures during the COVID-19 pandemic and even received criticism directly from Calabasas Mayor Alicia Weintraub, who told a local Fox affiliate that she was “outraged” over a video of Paul throwing a huge party at his Calabasas mansion in July. 

Paul, who has more than 20 million YouTube subscribers, has had past brushes with law enforcement officials. In May, he was charged with trespassing after videos appeared to show him looting a Scottsdale, Arizona, mall. Paul denied the allegations in a May 31 tweet.  

Paul’s representatives did not immediately respond for comment.
