The fast-paced romance between controversial YouTubers Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau is shaking up the internet, after Paul proposed to Tana on her 21st birthday after just two months of publicly dating – but another social media star is revealing some major tea in the midst of their alleged wedding plans.

While sources close to the couple claim that Paul and Mongeau have already set up an official date for their forthcoming wedding, some history between Tana and another personality in the space might put a wrench in the festivities.

FaZe co-owner Ricky Banks appeared on an episode of Adam ‘Adam22’ Grandmaison’s ‘No Jumper’ podcast on June 25, where he was presented with an awkward question regarding his relationship with Mongeau.

Tana Mongeau, InstagramYouTube star Jake Paul proposed to Tana Mongeau at a nightclub on her 21st birthday – but some fans aren’t buying their engagement.

Adam22 asked if Banks had ever “had a thing” with the YouTuber, later clarifying that he wanted to know if the two had gotten physical – to which Banks had a hesitant answer.

“Tana’s the homie,” Banks began. “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?”

Banks went on to apologize to both Tana and his current girlfriend, Alissa Violet, claiming that his alleged fling with Mongeau happened “way, way back” and that he’d kept it a secret for years.

“Yeah, it’s no big deal,” he continued. “The only reason why it’s a big deal is because I’m FaZe Banks and that’s Tana Mojo. I kept this a secret for three years!”

Banks’ statement could make his recently repaired relationship with Jake Paul a bit tense, as the two went to war in 2017, after Alissa Violet accused Paul of abusing her when they dated – with Paul returning the favor by claiming that Banks had assaulted his assistant at a nightclub.

This news comes smack in the middle of wedding rumors surrounding Mongeau and Paul, as well, who have allegedly penned the date for their ceremony on Friday, June 28 – just four days after Paul’s proposal.

However, many in the space are raising their proverbial eyebrows in skepticism, with fans and critics alike questioning if their “wedding” is just a massive stunt for Tana’s MTV show, ‘Tana Turns 21’ – especially considering the fact that other YouTubers have faked their weddings, before.

The couple have joked about being married and even started a fake “family channel” in the past, leading to ample confusion around their alleged engagement – with even the likes of Logan Paul appearing not to believe the debacle is for real.

Tana Mongeau claims that the engagement is legit, however, leaving fans waiting for their forthcoming Las Vegas wedding in the interim.

Joe Rogan was left shocked after hearing the crazy lengths that hugely popular American actor Matthew McConaughey’s went to to lose 50 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Joe Rogan has seen his fair share of top billed guests make his way into his podcast studios, both new and old. Some of his most well known guests include Elon Musk, Post Malone, and other famous faces across YouTube, business, Hollywood, and just about every conceivable entertainment sector.

He even recently set up a long anticipated episode with Kanye West, but their meeting was promptly cancelled along with several other episodes after one of the staff members revealed he needed to self-isolate.

However, fans of the podcast were treated to a huge celebrity from an entirely different industry in a prerecorded episode – actor Matthew McConaughey.

The 2013 was an enormous success, largely thanks to Matthew McConaughey’s highly regarded performance.

Matthew McConaughey on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast

Matthew has starred in films such as the Wolf of Wall Street, Contact, and of course 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club. He enacted AIDS patient Ron Woodroof’s heartbreaking story, and underwent an enormous physical transformation for the role.

As he shares with Joe Rogan, the actor lost over 50 pounds in the process of preparing for the challenging acting experience, dedicating himself to accurately portraying the story as true to life as possible.

“I weighed 135. And you know this, I was not torturing myself,” Matthew explained. “I was militant. The hardest part was making the damn choice. It was my responsibility.”

Topic begins at 1:19

With regard to the process of losing the weight, the actor said that he gave himself five months of a diet consisting of “tapioca pudding or whatever, three egg whites in the morning. Five ounces of fish couple vegetables for lunch, five ounces of fish couple vegetables for dinner.”

He said this is the diet that caused him to lose an insane 2.5 pounds a week, without any exercise. However, Joe was shocked to hear that Matthew was able to drink “as much wine as he wanted to drink,” joking “what kind of diet is this?”

“What I learned from it is that the body is more resilient than we give it credit for. The power I lost from the neck down equally or more sublimated to the neck up. My mental gain was so acute and so on point, that I was clinically smart.”

The incredible story was an insight into just how dedicated the beloved actor is to his roles, and certainly stunned Joe and the podcast viewers.
