Jake had a big bust-up with Mayweather during a press event promoting the legendary boxer's exhibition bout against Logan.
'The Problem Child' snatched Mayweather's hat, sparking a wild and messy brawl that saw the YouTuber get ambushed by The Money Team (TMT).
As a result, the 24-year-old tattooed the taunting phrase 'Gotcha Hat' on his leg.
And it appears his actions angered 'Money' so much that he tried to kill the budding boxing star in Miami.
Speaking on the NELK Boys' podcast, Paul incredibly said: "He was trying to get me killed behind the scenes, for sure.
"He was calling, like, 'the gangsters,' because we were in Miami at the time. He was, like, calling the 'street people,' because my security is tapped into the street people."
Paul added: "They were like, 'Yo, you guys gotta be f**king careful. He's trying to do something.
"So, whatever the f**k that meant, or means... I was like, 'Alright, if this is how I die, this is how I die.'"
A bout between Jake and Mayweather seems unlikely following his split-decision victory over Tyron Woodley.
The 4-0 fighter seems to be eyeing a bout against Tommy Fury, who clashed with Team Paul following his win over Anthony Taylor.
He said: "I think Tommy Fury is at the top of that list. He's skilled, he's undefeated and he's a real boxer.
"He has like 4million followers on Instagram, which is good engagement. He has the fans from like his relationship show [Love Island]."
