YouTube star Logan Paul has taken to social media to respond to a leaked video which reportedly shows him engaging in a sexual act with another man.
The ‘sex tape’ was released late Saturday night. Paul posted a cryptic tweet shortly after, without confirming or denying its authenticity.
The 24-year-old tweeted: “100k retweets and I’ll release the full sex tape.”

The post could be read to mean the tape is genuine, but it could also be the star simply making fun of the leak and adding fuel to the fire.
A later tweet suggested the video might not be him, when he wrote: “When clickbait turns to d*** bait.”
Paul also suggested other YouTube stars could be at risk, posting: “James Charles ur next.”
Charles was quick to respond, posting: “Sorry bro I only go for straight guys.”

If the video is a fake, it could have been released as a nod to Paul’s previous statements about his sexuality.
Although he previously dated actress Chloe Bennet, they are thought to have separated in 2018.
Paul sparked debate about his sexuality when he said on his podcast Impaulsive he was planning to “go gay for a month”.
The glib comments sparked a backlash from LGBT Groups, with the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation tweeting him to say: “That’s not how it works.”
Primarily an internet personality with millions of followers and subscribers, Paul recently moved into professional boxing.
He has taken part in two pay-per-view boxing matches, both with British YouTube star KSI.
The matches, one won by Paul and one by KSI, were unpopular amongst boxing purists, but sparked a huge amount of interest, making millions of pounds in the process.
