Now, from what we know so far, according to celebrity news website TMZ, both Jake and Zayn were in Las Vegas to attend the boxing match between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury—both also were staying at the same hotel and were even on the same floor with rooms next to each other. After the boxing match ended, Jake was making his way back to his room when he spotted the ex-One Direction singer along with his friends getting off the elevator. According to Jake’s side of the story, he asked a simple and plain question, in which Zayn replied ‘’I dont give a f*** if you have a goodnight!’’.

After some time during the night, they ran into each other again and that’s where things attempted to get nastier. Jake said he wanted to clear the air on why Zayn was rude to him earlier, but this time Zayn yelled and asked “Who the f*** do you think you are?!”. He even claimed that Zayn wanted to “test” him.

However, fast forward to three days later, Jake Paul’s brother, Logan, decided to clear the air about the situation—he even made it clear that he didn’t support his younger brother spiteful action—taking off his podcast to explain, ‘’I wasn’t defending my brother. I do think he was wrong, I told him that’’. He concluded, ‘’Jake was drunk. And I’ll point this to alcohol being the (evil) root of so many problems, and he tweeted some dumb sh**’’.

We still need a statement from Zayn Malik on what was really happening that night. Why was he being rude to Jake? Was he really coming off defensive towards the Youtube star? In the meantime, we’ll just be in bed, waiting.. In the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day. It’s our paradise and it’s our war zone.
