Jake Paul-Tyron Woodley: Woodley Won’t Tolerate What Paul’s Entourage Said To His Mother
Ruckus erupted after a member of Jake Paul’s entourage got into a verbal scuffle with Tyron Woodley’s mother, Deborah. Woodley said “f—k the fight,” and that it was not going to be tolerated.
Woodley and Paul had their press conference Thursday for their SHOWTIME event, which will air on pay-per-view on Sunday 8 p.m. ET. It seemed to be a level-headed conference, but then the fracas shifted the tension.

Woodley told reporters on the scene that he wasn’t going to let the verbal scuffle slide. In the video, you can see Woodley try and defend his mother from afar.
Paul said he felt his team was “in the wrong” but isn’t sorry for what happened.
“At the end of the day, they didn’t like what I said which is the truth, so they started going back and forth and talking, which they are more than willing to do. But what you’re not willing to do is f—-ing talk to my mother any type of way. I don’t give a f–k if you’re a whole op, if you killed my friend, I’m never gonna speak on nobody’s mom,” Woodley said.
It’s unclear what was exactly said to his mother.
Social media immediately buzzed at the news, taking Woodley’s side.

Paul said the Sunday fight is “more personal” and is looking to do something about it.
“I’m just sitting here talking about how much I love my mom, how much I love my girlfriend. And of course, there has to be (an) altercation involving females. It sucks,” Paul said.
And just everything about it just looks messy. We’re trying to have a professional event here, and now things are more personal. We’ll probably need more security in all these places, and things just aren’t cordial anymore. So tensions will definitely be higher going into this fight.”
