Popular YouTuber Jake Paul tied the knot with MTV starlet Tana Mongeau in late July – but rumors of infidelity were quick to surround the couple, after Paul was spotted with ex-girlfriend Erika Costell just two weeks after his wedding.

While Paul himself appeared to deflect any rumors of cheating on Mongeau, that hasn’t stopped curious fans from prying further – nor the paparazzi, for that matter.

The Hollywood Fix caught up with Costell as she ran errands in West Hollywood, attempting to ask the YouTuber-turned-model about her relationship with Paul in wake of the rumors.

KEEMSTAR, TwitterJake Paul was spotted with ex-girlfriend Erika Costell weeks after his wedding to Tana Mongeau – but he claims it wasn’t him.

“So everybody wants to know, are you and Jake like, officially back together?” the interviewer asked. “Are you guys like, officially dating now?”

Rather than answering his questions, Costell said nothing, hopping in her suped-up Jeep with nary a word on the subject.

Costell isn’t the only one remaining relatively silent on the matter, either: Jake himself claimed that it wasn’t actually him in the photos of the two that went viral online, denying any possibility of having seen Erika following his marriage to Mongeau.

“That’s not me,” Paul said of the matter. “Even if you did think that that is me, like I will admit that does look a lot like me and Erika – it does, it really does. It’s such an unfortunate misconception to say the least.”

Even older brother Logan Paul backed him up, claiming that a paparazzi must have used Deepfake technology to place his little bro’s face over another person’s head during an episode of his ‘imPaulsive’ podcast.

“Someone was eating lunch with my brother’s ex-girlfriend, Erika Costel, and the whole internet is saying that it was Jake, but… are we sure?” Logan said of the drama, zooming in on the photo. “…this looks like a Deepfake.”

Whether Jake was actually in the photos or not remains to be seen – but it looks like neither he nor Costell are spilling the beans about their proposed tryst, as evidenced by Costell’s tight-lipped response to curious reporters and fans alike.


S1mple banned again on Twitch for fourth time over “aggression”

CS:GO star Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev has apparently been banned again on Twitch, for his fourth time in total on the platform.

The Ukrainian is the star of Natus Vincere’s CSGO squad and generally considered one of the best CS:GO players in the entire world, but even that isn’t enough to save you from the wrath of Twitch mods.

S1mple is no stranger to temporary bans from the site, and it seems he added to his tally again on Oct. 30, with his channel being taken offline out of nowhere.

It seems that like in the past, the pro has once again been banned for using a slur while streaming, but this latest episode isn’t quite like the others.

Shortly after news of the ban dropped, s1mple Tweeted that he was banned for using a Russian slur, but he claims he only said it because he was upset with another player for saying it on his stream.

“It’s funny that I get banned for aggression towards a person that says the word “Pidor” and specifically tries to ban me on the platform,” he wrote. “I try to condemn him for this and say the forbidden word because I have a negative attitude towards it (because of rules).”

While s1mple filled fans in on why he was banned, he didn’t mention how long he would be off of the platform for. Looking at his past infractions though, and it’s safe to say he’s probably looking at a 7-day break, at the very least.

The site has been known to ban repeat offenders for longer if they continue to get in hot water for the same thing, but considering how big of a name s1mple is and the circumstances surrounding this particular incident, it’s hard to say.

A good number of his fans noted that Twitch was quick to ban the Na’Vi pro after he slipped up, but still haven’t taken action against any one of the countless channels that rebroadcast s1mple’s streams to try and steal viewers.

Still, the pro doesn’t seem so much bothered by the ban as he does annoyed, which makes sense because he doesn’t really need to stream so to speak, considering all the money he’s made playing CS:GO professionally. That doesn’t really help his fans though, who will have to find someone else to watch while they wait for his return.
