It appears that controversial YouTuber Jake Paul has proposed to girlfriend Tana Mongeau as the pair celebrated her 21st birthday – but not everyone is convinced that their engagement is real just yet. 

The pair have been rumored to be in a relationship since early May, when Mongeau labelled Paul as her “rebound” following her emotional split from ex-boyfriend Brad Sousa.

In the past, the couple decided to get matching tattoos as a mark of their romance, but it appears that they’ve have taken their commitment to a new level, after Tana announced that they were engaged on June 24. 

Tana Mongeau / InstagramTana Mongeau and Jake Paul say they’re engaged to be married.

In a clip taken from Mongeau’s Instagram story, the YouTuber can be seen inside a nightclub wearing a large ring with some sort of gem on top, while two girls providing bottle service. It looks as if they are also holding a cake with “Will you marry me, Tana?” written on it.

Tana’s Instagram story included a video clip with the caption “I’m engaged” with a tag to Jake Paul.

The story has since reached the mainstream, when Tana tweeted out that Paul had asked her to marry him and revealed that the couple are now engaged. 

Images of the ring, as well as a few snaps of the couple celebrating her birthday together, have been posted to social media, sparking a frenzy of comments from their respective fanbases. Some are more skeptical than others. 

The news comes just weeks after  Fortnite Battle Royale pro player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney more attractive than him. Yet, it seems that dispute is now very much behind the couple. 

There have been no further comment from both parties about a timeframe in which they are planning on tying the knot, but we’ll update this story with further details as and when they’re made available to us.

Paul has revealed, though, that an upcoming video will be uploaded to his YouTube channel in reaction to the big birthday celebrations. So, fans can look forward to that.

Charli D’Amelio slams “out of control” hate from 100m followers scandal

TikTok star Charli D’Amelio is hitting back at the intense criticism she received after joking about not reaching 100 million followers in a year, as well as the hate that followed her tearful Instagram Live on the subject.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s most-followed content creator. Now boasting over 101 million followers, Charli has become the poster girl for the viral video application — but not everyone is a fan of the internet superstar.

The 16-year-old influencer got hit with an avalanche of negativity upon the release of a “Dinner with the D’Amelio’s” episode on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly bemoan not reaching 100 million followers in a year’s time.

The issue quickly erupted into a scandal, with users calling out Charli for purportedly only seeing her fans as “numbers” and being ungrateful for her privileged position as a celebrity.

The hate soon spun into a hurricane of vile comments, with D’Amelio even revealing she’d been sent death threats from angry viewers during a tearful Instagram live addressing the situation. She even lost 1 million followers over the ordeal.

She has discussed the matter yet again in a solo December 3 episode of her ‘2 Chix’ podcast sans sister Dixie D’Amelio, hitting back at the shocking amount of hate she received over the scandal.

“The thing that I think happened was, it spiraled completely out of control,” she said of the situation. “It turned into a place where I was getting threats for my life. When talking about this on Live, I got emotional, because that’s not something that people take lightly.”

“I feel like people really have to understand that yes, I do have a substantial amount of people that follow me on social media,” she continued. “That does not mean that I am not a person. …The entire situation was taken completely out of proportion by lots of people.”

“I know I’m not a disrespectful person. I know that I’m not a genuinely horrible person. I know I’m a good person, at the end of the day. Whether or not everyone agrees with that is for them to figure out, and that’s totally fine.”

Charli’s podcast shines a light on the growing negativity from social media platforms like TikTok, which even bullied the likes of Taio Cruz off the website within just a few days of him creating an account.

This situation serves as an important reminder to remember that no matter the circumstances, there’s always another person behind your phone screen who your words are directly affecting — 100 million followers or not.
