Jake and Logan Paul were money-making machines in 2021 … with the YouTube superstars-turned-boxers reportedly raking in a combined $63 MILLION over the past year.
Forbes just released its list of highest-paid influencers on the social media platform on Friday … with the Problem Child coming in at #2 with an astonishing $45 million estimated in earnings.
The outlet reports about $40 million of that moolah came via the boxing ring — with Jake beating up on Ben Askren in April and Tyron Woodley in August and December.
Whether Jake is considered a “real” boxer or not, the serious money he’s pocketing is not up for debate — his income in 2021 would have put him among the top-earning athletes last year … making more than Canelo Alvarez, who reportedly brought in $34 million.
As for Logan — who came in at #8 on Forbes’ YouTube list — he reportedly made $18 million in 2021 … large in part to his fight with Floyd Mayweather, his “Impaulsive” podcast, and other business opportunities.
Despite the insane earnings in 2021, neither Jake nor Logan could beat out Mr. Beast for the #1 spot — the King of YouTube brought in $54 million alone.
