- Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau got married in Las Vegas on Sunday.
- Many believe the marriage is fake and simply a stunt to gain more YouTube views.
- Tana is finally speaking out about the relationship on her show, MTV No Filter: Tana Turns 21.
[Updated on 8/1/2019 12:24 PM]: Tana Mongeau is not too happy with MTV right now as she is accusing them of taking comments she made about her wedding to Jake Paul out of context. The YouTuber took to Twitter on Wednesday to respond to the multiple articles that were written about her mentioning that her marriage to Jake was "for fun and for content."
"I filmed confessionals for the show A LONG TIME AGO!" she said. "The 'for fun and content' sound bite was from a very long sentence lmao and was a little salty to see it pulled out of context."
confessionals for the show A LONG TIME AGO! the “for fun and content” sound bite was from a very long sentence lmao and was a little salty to see it pulled out of context.. i understand though that MTV has their own creative & that these episodes are airing very late, especially— Tana Paul (@tanamongeau) August 1, 2019
She admits that she knows "things have moved so fast, are unconventional, and confusing," but she stands by her relationship with Jake, saying, "I love Jake. I truly do, in the weirdest f*cking way. Every second of this rollercoaster ride has been so fun & crazy. I hate that it’ll probably always come with owing people some explanation especially with so many things coming out like the show (which is quite behind)... but I know that’s kinda the life we signed up for..."
with owing people some explanation especially with so many things coming out like the show (which is quite behind)... but i know that’s kinda the life we signed up for. idk. i’ll fuck off.— Tana Paul (@tanamongeau) August 1, 2019
Tana also cites the YouTube video she made for Jake, which she posted on the morning of their wedding. "I just uploaded an 8 minute youtube video on how much I love Jake & am not tryna look like that much of a sociopath hahahahahah."
MTV will continue to air MTV No Filter: Tana Turns 21, most likely sharing more footage from the YouTubers' romance, as well as the wedding itself, which they apparently filmed in its entirety.
Original post: Two days after Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau's WILD wedding, fans are still not sure exactly what to think. Did the YouTubers actually tie the knot in Las Vegas on Sunday night, or is the whole thing simply an extremely elaborate YouTube prank? Well, Tana is finally speaking out about the marriage...and it seems like she might not even know how genuine Jana truly is.
On the fourth episode of Tana's show MTV No Filter: Tana Turns 21, we see Tana planning her upcoming 21st birthday party in Vegas. As she talks to her friends in the beginning of the episode, not only does she reveal that she knows Jake is going to propose at her party, but that they've been planning to get married for awhile now, with the wedding originally set for May.
Despite knowing that in just days, she will be engaged, Tana's relationship with Jake it still really confusing. She doesn't want to have her birthday party at his house because it "establishes [her] too much as his girl," and she discusses bringing her "side hoes" to her birthday.
"Jake and I aren't officially exclusive, so for me, I guess we would just take the openness from our relationship into the openness of marriage right?" she says, admitting that the two are still "trying to piece together the puzzle of what we actually want this engagement and 'marriage' to be."
The rest of the episode pretty much continues the same dialogue. Tana and her friends prepare for the wedding while they all (including Tana), try to figure out if this relationship and marriage are actually legit. Moments of Tana saying she wished she could hook up with Tyga, Kylie's ex, who texted her for her birthday, come just a minute before Tana says to her manager that Jake and Tana aren't lying to their fans about their relationship, and, "what they see is what they get."
At one point, Tana admits that the whole Jana thing is "something fun and lighthearted that we are obviously doing for fun and for content." She later tells her manager that both she and Jake have this "unspoken premise of like, 'It's like a Kim Kardashian, 72 day marriage,'" which Tana agrees is a "f*cked up way to think about a wedding."
So yeah, watching this episode of Tana's show, it seems pretty clear that even Tana doesn't really know what is going on when it comes to her relationship with Jake...and he may not know either. At the end of the episode the two chat, and Tana brings up the all important question regarding a prenup.
"So, this is 100% legal on paper...Yeah?" Tana asks her "fiancé," saying she has "prenup questions." Jake, though, kind of brushes off her concerns, saying they shouldn't talk about it because they want to "make it seem" like it is legal, though he doesn't reveal whether it is or not.
Then, Tana asks if she should actually move in to Jake's house, something he apparently offered earlier. Again, he seems pretty confused as to how to answer, but finally says she should, because that's what married people do.
The episode ends with Tana kind of admitting that things have gone to far.
"Everyone wants to know if Jana is real and what this is," she says. "So we've just been playing it up for the f*cking people because at the end of the day, we are internet trolls, but at the same time I'm starting to realize that this could potentially be very real and it's up to us how real it is and I'm starting to get an inkling of cold feet."
Considering they went through with it (the wedding reception, at least, we still don't know is they legally got married), I would say Tana either got over her cold feet or the two of them finally sat down and defined the relationship, figuring out if it's for clout or actually legit...something they should probably have done before the proposal.
