Watch out, Calabasas. There’s a new bad boy coming to town – and it’s not Justin Bieber this time.

YouTube star Jake Paul dropped $6.93 million for a 15,000-square-foot mansion at Park South in Calabasas, the Los Angeles Times reported. The purchase comes shortly after Paul caused fury among his neighbors in Beverly Grove, who considered filing a nuisance lawsuit after the 20-year-old drove dirt bikes in the residential streets and started a fire in his rental home.

The three-story, gated estate has eight bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a music room, gym, theater, office, bar and (hopefully) more privacy. A swimming pool with two waterfalls, a spa and a four-car garage sit on 3.5 acres of grounds.
