Jake and Logan Paul once "hated" each other as the brothers battled to determine who was the bigger content creator.

YouTube boxer Jake, who is set to fight UFC legend Nate Diaz in Texas on Saturday night, shot to internet fame a decade ago along with brother Logan after making videos on the now-defunct platform Vine. Their popularity eventually carried over to YouTube as the pair were two of the biggest video creators on the platform.

Both brothers made 'diss tracks' about each other after their fall-out as Logan's track remains the highest-viewed video on his YouTube channel to date. New footage from Jake's 'Untold' Netflix documentary has revealed how tensions eventually boiled over with Logan and led to them hating each other.

"In Los Angeles, we were more focused on business and making money, growing our brands. That became a competitive race. I wanted to prove to him that I'm legit and I can do this too. He wanted to prove to me that he's the bigger brother and he's going to get more followers than me, things just got too competitive," Jake said.

"There was a point where Jake and I hated each other, legitimately not for clout or clicks. We had YouTube beef. I was beating him, make no mistake. This is so f****ng stupid but I had more subscribers, I had the girl, had more people paying attention and was selling more merch," Logan added.

"I'm bigger than you, I'm better looking than you, I'm more creative than you, I tell better stories than you. I thought I was just like a better version of Jake. It was YouTube f****ng war. I was a 22-year-old at the time and I didn't care at the time about how bad I was hurting my little brother. At the time, so much was going right and it was so easy to throw around these extreme emotions. Hate, envy and jealousy, so just volatile. Then things started going wrong for both of us, what goes up must come down," Logan added.

Jake found himself in controversy soon falling out with Logan as he lost a partnership with Disney because of the online pranks that caused havoc in his local community. Logan also came under fire for posting a controversial video to his channel that showed the body of a man who died by suicide in the Aokigahara 'suicide forest'.

"He was my only competition on YouTube and I was getting more views than him. That's when I saw him really. Logan definitely crossed the line but I get it from his point of view. We were the two biggest people on YouTube but we both wanted to the biggest, so you gotta start doing crazy s*** just to get views," Jake said.
