#Logan #Paul has been named in a lawsuit from the movie company #Planeless #Pictures, who claims he intentionally ruined a $3 million deal they had when he posted pictures of a suicide victim on social media nearly three years ago.

#Planeless #Pictures said that in 2016, they came to an accord with the #YouTuber, 25, to do a film called #Airplane #Mode, TMZ reported, citing court docs.

The #Westlake, #Ohio-born social media star in the movie was slated to portray a fictionalized portrait of himself, as the motion picture centered around social media stars and influencers.

#Paul was also going to produce and write the film, and be a point person to recruit other notables names such as #Juanpa #Zureta, #Nick #Bateman, #Amanda #Cerny and his brother #Jake #Paul to be associated with the project.

The film would subsequently be put out via the influencers in a monetized fashion, the company said in court docs, and #YouTube parent company had agreed to pay $3 million to license it.

#Things changed, however, when #Logan was caught in scandal in after a #December 31, 2017 vlog when he posted a shot of a person who had hanged themselves in #Aokigahara, #Japan near #Mount #Fuji, which #Planeless said in legal docs led to #Google nixing the deal.

#Paul – who was subsequently temporarily suspended from the platform – posted an apologetic video amid the scandal on #January 2, 2018.

‘I should have never posted the video,’ he said. ‘I should have put the cameras down and stopped recording what we were going through. There’s a lot of things I should have done differently but I didn’t. #And for that, from the bottom of my heart, I am sorry.’

#He told #Good #Morning #America in #February of 2018 that he’d exhibited ‘a horrible lack of judgment’ in posting the image of the tragedy.

#He said he’s a ‘good guy who made a bad decision’ and opened up about the backlash he’d experienced in the wake of the post.

He's slated to take on boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, 43, in February

‘#This has been, to be honest with you, the hardest time in my life,’ he said. ‘#It’s been tough, cause ironically I’m being told to commit suicide myself. #Millions of people literally telling me they hate me, to go die in a fire. #Like, the most horrible, horrific things.’

#Paul vowed ‘to learn from it and be a better person.’

#His career has continued to flourish in recent years, as he’s taken to the boxing ring in highly-publicized bout with media star KSI and is slated to take on boxing legend #Floyd #Mayweather, 43, in #February.
