Planeless Pictures, in the suit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles, claims that the tech giant pulled out of a $3.5 million deal because of the video, according to court documents obtained by NBC News.

Paul, a YouTube star with nearly 23 million subscribers, began his career on the now-defunct six-second video app Vine, and, after Vine shuttered, moved to YouTube where he continued to grow his following. Recently, Paul has begun focusing on a boxing career and is slated to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. in February 2021.
