  • YouTuber Logan Paul, 27, recently opened up during a guest appearance on the “True Geordie Podcast” about how Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, 50, cut ties with him after his scandalous Aokigahara incident in 2017.
  • “After Japan happened, I obviously found myself in a hole – rightfully so – that I had never been in before,” Paul said. “Extremely low, mentally, and I got a call from my publicist, who also repped Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.”
  • “She’s like, ‘Hey, Dwayne has asked that you remove every video and picture that you’ve done with him. Maybe in the future the relationship can be reconciled, but for now, he basically wants nothing to do with you,’” Paul continued.
  • Before being embroiled in the controversy, the two had appeared in several viral videos together, including one where Paul visits Johnson on the set of the 2017 movie “Baywatch.”
  • Regarding his relationship with Johnson after the controversy, Paul said, “I feel like we had a healthy relationship, an open line of communication. I was so sad that my hero wanted nothing to do with me. I was sad because I understood it. I really f*cked up.”
  • The YouTuber admitted that the Hollywood actor sent him an Instagram direct message “about three months ago” like “nothing ever happened,” but he denied sending a reply.
