CALABASAS, CA — YouTuber turned professional fighter Jake Paul announced in a video last week that he is putting his Calabasas mansion up for sale.

In the video, Paul is seen placing a “For Sale” sign in the ground in front of the home, called the Team 10 mansion, as he explains he’s leaving his "problem-child era" behind to focus on his fighting career.

Business Insider reports Paul bought the mansion in 2017 for $6.9 million. According to the report, the house encompasses 15,000 square feet and sits on over 3.5 acres.

“This next goal that I’ve set for myself is to become the biggest prizefighter in the world,” Paul said of removing himself from California. “That’s a large shoe to fill, and the only way to step into it is to immerse myself as a legitimate fighter.”

It’s unclear to where Paul plans to move once his mansion sells.

Paul came under fire over the summer for hosting a party at the mansion during the coronavirus pandemic. According to an ABC7 report, guests at the party were seen ignoring mask and social distancing requirements.

Calabasas Mayor Alicia Weintraub told the news station the move was in direct opposition to measures designed to prevent the spread of the virus.

"I was very upset that somebody would hold such an outrageous gathering in our community," the mayor told ABC News, noting that the city had recently enacted a policy of issuing a minimum-$100 fine for not wearing a facial covering in public. "We're trying to do everything we can to get our numbers down and keep our community safe, and something like this just does the opposite."

Two weeks later, the Team 10 mansion was raided by federal agents after Paul was suspected of joining a riot during a Black Lives Matter protest in Arizona.

After the raid, in which several firearms were removed from the home, Paul said he was not involved in any looting or vandalism, and did not condone it.

"To be absolutely clear, neither I nor anyone in our group was engaged in any shooting or vandalism," he said. "For context, we spent the day doing our part to peacefully protest one of the most horrific injustices our country has ever seen, which led to us being tear gassed and forced to keep moving on foot. We filmed everything we saw in an effort to share our experience and bring more attention to the anger felt in every neighborhood we traveled through; we were strictly documenting, not engaging."
