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.

A Pokemon Trading Card Game livestream ended in disaster after it was quickly discovered that the booster packs were fake. The YouTube channel spent over $375k on the 1st Edition base set box, only for it to be resealed. 

Despite making its debut in 1999, the Pokemon TCG has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hobby hit an all-time high in October when influencer Logan Paul opened a base set booster box he paid $216k for while livestreaming.

However, things didn’t work out as well for another YouTube channel who paid $375k for the same item. The livestream unboxing of the rare collectible quickly turned tragic when it was discovered that the TCG item was actually fake.

Rare Pokemon TCG box opening ends in complete disaster

The event was hosted by YouTube channel ‘Dumb Money Live’ and included popular Pokemon content creators such as Lee ‘Leonhart’ Seinfeld. The rare 1st Edition base set booster box was bought for a record-breaking $375 through Logan Paul’s collectible trader ‘Collectables Guru.’

“The owner of the box supposedly bought three boxes when he was a child. They sat in the gun safe the entire time,” the Pokemon dealer explained. However, they quickly realized something was amiss after breaking the seal. Several booster packs were different colors, and some weren’t even 1st Edition.

“Oh no. That is a major f**king deal!” Guru exclaimed. The personality opening the box then revealed the problem: “It’s not even base set cards, these are Jungles! Wow. This is a resealed box. It’s random!”

(Topic starts at 35:41)

Upset, Collectable Guru called up the seller and explained that the box was resealed. “We opened the box literally live and they’re resealed packs. There is like base set 2 mixed in, half of them are 1st Edition. But they are all resealed, this is absolutely unacceptable. How is this going to be taken care of immediately?”

Stunned by the whole thing, Leonhart stood by and said, “Oh my gosh, I was not expecting that.” Guru came back and updated the group and explained that the seller had two other boxes that they were going to open first before bringing them back to the YouTubers.

The YouTubers were floored after the rare Pokemon box was fake.

To add salt to the wound, the box opening was done on stream for charity. Dumb Money Live gave an update and addressed the situation a day later stating: “I don’t know a single person in my network that hasn’t been defrauded as an investor. You have to give sellers a benefit to make this right.”

At the time of writing, the situation has not been entirely rectified. The channel will open a booster pack on October 30 live to verify that the second box is actually real. However, it appears that if this one is fake as well, the seller claims they will refund the content creators their $375k.
