Logan Paul Claims He Was Suicidal Following The CryptoZoo Scandal

Logan Paul is no stranger to controversy. You’ll remember, he was nearly canceled back in 2017 after he posted a truly bizarre video filmed inside the “suicide forest” — it was basically him and his friends filming a dead body in the forest and celebrating because they knew it’d bring in views.

Paul went on an apology tour after the incident, and to his credit, he has managed to turn his life around in recent years.

But in 2022, he found himself in the middle of more drama after YouTuber Coffeezilla released a video series investigating Paul’s NFT game and calling it out for being a scam.

The CryptoZoo project allegedly scammed more than a million dollars, but Paul claims he didn’t know it was a scam when he backed the project. In a new documentary with Graham Bensinger, Paul admitted he fell into a deep depression when the accusations were made against him.

At one point, he even considered taking his own life…

For the first time in my life I was having suicidal thoughts. I was just spiraling, Graham. Spiraling. I was crying, like sobbing … I felt weak, which is uncommon for me. I’m supposed to be the leader.

He had a complete breakdown while visiting his fiancee, Nina Agdal’s, family in Denmark. But after talking with his team, he found a way to make things right by offering a $2.3 million buyback program for those who put money into the game.

He also took legal action against Eduardo Ibanez and “Crypto King” Jake Greenbaum for their roles in the debacle, basically accusing them of taking advantage of him and his millions of followers.
