YouTube star Jake Paul issued a statement on Saturday announcing his departure from Disney Channel, and his role as Dirk Mann on the show Bizaardvark.

The 20-year-old social media fixture has been making headlines recently after a scathing news report showed how the home where he films elaborate YouTube videos—and the hordes of fans who know his address—was becoming too much for the neighboring community. 

“Long story short… my team, Disney Channel, and I have come to the agreement it’s finally time for me to move on from the Disney family and ‘Bizaardvark,” Paul’s note reads. “At this point in time I am wanting to focus more on my personal brand, my YouTube channel, business ventures, growing Team 10, and working on more adult acting roles.”

Reactions to Paul leaving the show have been mixed, with some people expecting his relationship to be severed with Disney following controversial reports—and others being sad about his departure from Bizaardvark

Disney Channel also released a statement regarding Paul’s departure.

“We’ve mutually agreed that Jake Paul will leave his role on the Disney Channel series ‘Bizaardvark.’  On behalf of the production company, the cast and crew, we thank Jake for his good work on the TV series for the past 18 months and extend our best wishes to him,” a Disney Channel spokesperson wrote.

So long, farewell to that Disney Channel flow, I guess.
