There has been much speculation floating around the internet since the infamous fist fight broke out at YouTube couple Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul‘s wedding on July 28, and it seems like it was finally proven to be staged on August 19.
Unfortunately for the couple, a fist fight broke out at the wedding during their first kiss as husband and wife. Many speculated that the brawl was fake, and now we might actually have an answer.
Was the fight at Tana & Jake’s wedding staged?
It was first thought that the fight could have been staged after a next episode preview for the YouTube starlet’s MTV show ‘Tana Turns 21’ on August 12 hinted at the possibility.
“Yo, I heard there might be a fake fight, by the way,” the voiceover stated when the preview glossed over events happening in episode seven.

Episode seven of the show aired on August 19 and cleared up the rumors once and for all. In the video, Jake and Tana are standing at the altar about to share their first kiss as husband and wife when a drink is thrown over the couple.
The YouTube starlet’s best friend Ashley Schwan then cuts in with a voiceover. “I see this drink being thrown at Jake and Tana, and I literally don’t know what’s going on, like, I’m still clapping and cheering for them to have their first kiss.”
Manager Jordan Worona was also clueless about the fight, and said: “I have no idea what is going on, it’s just a bunch of people pushing each other. Then immediately I thought maybe this is planned. It’s kind of like what Jake does though, you know, a lot of his content is built on shock factor and stuff like that.”
He continued, and said that he wasn’t happy about a drink being thrown over the bride. “So creating some sort of diversion or story is totally cool, but um, pouring a glass of champagne on the bride is not cool. Probably not the best way to start a marriage.”

Tana wasn’t happy about the fight
Tana uploaded the couple’s wedding vlog on August 19, which provided behind-the-scenes insight into the brawl at the event.
In a voiceover just after the part where the duo wed, she stated sarcastically: “Instead of going straight to the wedding reception, I had to run to the bathroom that I just spent eight hours getting ready in to wash the champagne out of my hair and put it in this ugly-ass updo and tried to redo three hours worth of makeup in five minutes which was totally so much fun and something I wanted to do right after getting married.”
The video then played a clip from the YouTuber just after she entered the bathroom. “Someone just threw a glass of champagne at Jake and I at the altar, at my wedding dress… champagne all in my hair.”

Tana and Jake were first rumored to be dating back in April when the Team 10 owner called the YouTuber ‘cute’ in a vlog, with their relationship moving swiftly ever since.
