While YouTubers Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul are allegedly gearing up for a July wedding, FaZe co-owner Ricky Banks admitted some sensitive details about his relationship with Mongeau – which occurred right in the middle of a fight with his current girlfriend, Alissa Violet.

FaZe Banks appeared in an episode of Adam22’s ‘No Jumper’ podcast on June 25, where he admitted that he’d had a physical relationship with Mongeau in the past – a matter he’d kept secret for over three years.

“Tana’s the homie,” Banks reluctantly said. “Honestly, I’m gonna be real with you, I don’t remember. Yeah. Fuck, dude. …Wait – did I actually admit to this? Did that just happen?”

Shortly after the podcast went live, Alissa unfollowed Banks on social media – leading some fans to believe that the move was made out of anger and jealousy about Banks’ past involvement with Mongeau.

However, this turned out to be mere speculation, as Banks clarified the matter in a Tweet on June 26, explaining that their fight had nothing to do with the podcast.

Alissa Violet, InstagramThings got tense between couple Alissa Violet and FaZe Banks, after Banks admitted to sleeping with Tana Mongeau three years ago.

“Wow this really hot girl just followed me,” he wrote. “Lmaooo you guys are insane. Terrible timing for a fight. Guys, fights happen. This had 0 to do with the podcast or Tana. You guys are crazy lol.”

Alissa appeared to back up his statement, agreeing that their spat had nothing to do with Tana and claiming that she had even been aware of their relationship before she’d started dating Banks two years ago.

“I love Tana and I knew about everything when we first started dating two years ago,” she explained. “Literally terrible timing.”

While the YouTubers have yet to open up about the exact cause for their fight, Banks’ admission could make his recently repaired relationship with Jake Paul a bit awkward, as the two shared a highly public rivalry – one that involved Violet, who is also Paul’s ex-girlfriend.

Although the two have finally squashed their differences, Mongeau’s sudden engagement is turning heads across the internet, with many doubting that their union is actually legitimate.

Even Paul’s own brother, Logan, is in the dark, with both fans and family forced to wait until the new date of their wedding on July 28.


Is Dixie D’Amelio performing at the Grammys? Twitter reignites wild nominee rumor

Twitter has reignited the wild rumors that Dixie D’Amelio could be performing at the Grammys, and might even win an award. However, that isn’t the case, and here’s why.

A few of the biggest social media stars will, ultimately, crossover into the mainstream and appear on TV, get roles in movies, and some will even go into music.

With the rise of TikTok, there have been a few creators who’ve done all three – with the biggest of which being the D’Amelio’s, Charli, and Dixie. The former appeared in a Super Bowl commercial while Dixie has dropped a few songs, and even had features from One Direction’s Liam Payne.

Now, with awards season on the horizon, Twitter has reignited a rumor about her potentially being up for a Grammy and even performing at the annual show. However, that’s not likely to be the case.

Will Dixie D’Amelio sing at the Grammys?

Back in late December, Dixie responded to a wild set of rumors that she, alongside controversial rapper 6ix9ine, would be opening the Grammys with a performance of one of her songs.

“LMAOOO STOP,” she tweeted, on her now-deleted account. “I’m being set up at this point oh my god,” Dixie added in a follow-up post, before joking that a few fans had been a bit too gullible in eating up the rumor.

Ultimately, to perform at the show, you have to be nominated and Dixie hasn’t made the cut. So, despite Twitter bring the rumor back up, we’ll see probably see someone like Dua Lipa, or Coldplay, or even Beyonce strut their stuff instead.

Is Dixie D’Amelio nominated for a Grammy?

As above, no, Dixie has not been nominated for a Grammy for either of her songs that would be eligible – One Whole Day or Naughty List.

Even though it’s gotten some incredible buzz, her song Roommates is not eligible for this year’s Grammys show because it was released way after the cutoff date for voting. Maybe next year, though?

So, if you’re expecting to see Dixie at the Grammys, the only hope you’ve got is if she’s there as part of the crowd or on the red carpet. Someone might even use TikTok dances in their performance and slip one of her videos in, who knows.

However, she won’t be performing any of her own songs, so, sorry to disappoint anyone who may have been expecting it.
