Logan Paul recounts his relationship with The rock was completely ruined amid the fallout from his suicide forest vlog in 2017… revealing his idol asked him to delete all traces of them together from social media following the controversy.
The 27-year-old YouTuber/boxer has called on celebrities and politicians to take it down after posting footage of a man committing suicide on his channel after a trip to Japan… but claims one person, in particular, left him really hurt.
“It was one of the saddest times of my life, what I will say.” Logan said on the True Geordie podcast.
“After Japan arrived, I obviously found myself in a hole – deservedly so – that I had never been in before. Extremely low, mentally, and I got a call from my publicist, who also replaced Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.”
“She’s like, ‘Hey, Dwayne asked that you delete all the videos and photos you made with him. Maybe in the future the relationship can be reconciled, but right now he doesn’t want to. nothing to do with you.’ Which I also understood. I understand. I made a grotesque mistake.”
“There have been things in his life where this incident has affected him in a very different way,” Logan added.
Johnson has previously spoken about his mother’s suicide attempt when he was just 15… calling on people to watch out and take care of each other.
Logan says he wishes The Rock had reached out to him personally to explain his decision to cut ties… saying, “I feel like we had a healthy relationship, an open line of communication. I was so sad that my hero didn’t want to do anything with me.”
“I was sad because I figured it out. I really screwed up.”
As for their relationship now, Paul says Johnson recently reached out to him via Instagram DM and pretended nothing happened…but he didn’t respond.
Johnson also reacted to Logan’s recent appearance at WrestleManiasaying he was very proud of the Maverick’s work….but it seems that relationship is far from set in stone.
