YouTube stars Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau shocked the internet with a live-streamed wedding after just two months of publicly dating – but other top YouTubers aren’t convinced their union is legit.

While both Jake and Tana insist that “Jana” is the real deal, speculation continues to run rampant across the online world concerning the validity of their marriage.

Despite admitting that they aren’t married “on paper,” it doesn’t look like the couple is giving up their charade anytime soon – but Jake Paul’s ex-girlfriend, Erika Costell, appears to see through what could be a mere stunt for views.

Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau got married after just two months of publicly dating – inciting speculation that their union was a mere stunt for views.

During an episode of “Under the Influence” with Tom Ward, the YouTuber-turned model mentioned her own Vegas marriage to ex-boyfriend Jake Paul – a union she blatantly called “fake.”

“I didn’t think that was going to happen,” Erika said of the massive following she received due to her relationship with Paul. “But ‘Jerika’ or whatever was already a thing in his vlogs, so his audience knew who I was. So, that really helped, and we also got fake married in Vegas. Sounds a little familiar.”

YouTuber, model and music artist Erika Costell opened up on her ex-boyfriend’s sudden marriage to Tana Mongeau – and threw a little shade their way.

That’s not all: Costell also speculated that the couple had created their fake marriage to stir up “controversy” for views and attention, for which she expressed some concern regarding its lastability.

“I think they like the controversy,” she continued. “I think it gets them going. I don’t know, because I don’t do it, but to each their own. It’s working, yeah. Back then, it was nice to wake up and have instant gratification, and I think what they’re doing is instant. …I feel like it’s just repetitive. But it’s working, so whatever.”

While both Jake and Tana have yet to react to Costell’s comments, this marks the first time Erika has openly spoken out about the issue following her breakup with Paul – as well as their infamous lunchtime meetup after the big wedding.

However, Mongeau did tease a potential “scandal out of boredom” in a cryptic Tweet on November 18, but whether or not this marks a reaction to Costell’s shade remains to be seen.

Speculation has already begun, with one Twitter user claiming Forsen has fallen victim to Twitch’s DMCA regulations, adding, “DMCA apparently, stream sniper played copyrighted music … The state of Twitch.”

In 2020, Several streamers have been banned for old VODs that feature any form of licensed music.

This isn’t his first time facing a suspension from the platform. Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors was banned from Twitch for the second time on September 10, following his previous ban in May.

He wasn’t given a detailed explanation behind his account ban, but once unbanned, Forsen revealed more information. During his September 12 stream, Forsen explained he believes he was suspended for using a homophobic slur, but says it was ‘misheard’ because of his Swedish accent.
