Controversial YouTubers Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau are taking their fast-paced relationship to the next level, revealing their alleged “engagement” after just two months of publicly dating – but the subsequent wedding rumors surrounding the couple may be on hold, after Paul “faked” a major wedding gift for his fiance.

Tana Mongeau made no secret about her biggest birthday wish, asking her fanbase to Tweet at her boyfriend en masse to convince him to buy her a car – even getting the debacle to trend on Twitter, in the process.

However, Paul isn’t one to surrender so easily; rather than acquiesce to her request, he decided to pull a major prank on the YouTube star, staging a fake “gift reveal” that hearkened back to his similar stunt on his own brother, Logan Paul.

Tana Mongeau, InstagramJake Paul proposed to girlfriend Tana Mongeau at her 21st birthday bash – but fans aren’t buying the stunt.

Jake traveled to the Mercedes-Benz of Calabasas, CA in order to pull off the practical joke, even putting a giant red ribbon on top of a black Mercedes G Wagon – which ended up belonging to someone else, a development that Tana had openly suspected all along.

“You know you’re just fucking with me for the clickbait,” Tana said of the matter, before the big reveal. “…it’s a fake car with a bow on it. And this is a funny-ass bit where you pretend to get me the car I wanted.”

Of course, Paul’s “gift” was all a ruse – but that didn’t stop Tana from accepting his “proposal” at her 21st birthday bash, with sources close to the couple later revealing their wedding date to be June 28, just four days after the proposal.

However, these sources have since updated their original statement, with Hollywood Life reporting that their wedding has now been pushed back to July 28 due to scheduling for Mongeau’s MTV series ‘Tana Turns 21.’

While Hollywood actress Bella Thorne uploaded a teary reaction to the news, fans across the net aren’t buying the YouTubers’ wedding plans, with many speculating that the couple is faking the entire ordeal for content.

However, Mongeau has assured her audience that the proposal is, indeed, legitimate – leaving fans waiting for a possible reveal in the near future.

Twitch star Jake “Jake’n’Bake” Abramson has revealed he could be “in danger of losing everything” he’s built on his channel after an old IRL clip from more than two years ago was hit with a DMCA copyright strike due to a Kanye West song.

The ongoing Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) drama sweeping across Twitch has spared no one from its reach. The new Twitch crackdown, which sees streamers pinged for licensed music on broadcasts, is the hot topic in the community right now.

One by one, Twitch’s biggest stars have been sucked into the DMCA drama; Imane “Pokimane” Anys was forced to delete her streaming back-catalog last week, and Michael “shroud” Grzesiek has called for stars to “unite” against the crackdown.

DragonForce’s Herman Li was also banned after DMCA flagged his own music.

Jake’n’Bake has become the latest Twitch streamer caught up in the DMCA drama.

Now, the latest star to find himself on the DMCA frontlines is Jake’n’Bake. The 30-year-old IRL star is one of the Amazon-owned platform’s biggest stars. He boasts nearly 500k followers, but that may now be in danger.

Jake’n’Bake revealed on Oct. 29 that he had been hit with a copyright infringement from Twitch. The kicker? The clip in question was from a May 9 stream all the way back in 2018, which contained just mere seconds of Kanye West’s ‘Lift Yourself.’

Jake’n’Bake gets DMCA strike for old Twitch clip

“Just to be clear… this is a 30-second clip from two and a half years ago,” Abramson wrote on Twitter soon after receiving the DMCA email.

The Twitch email detailed a “claimed infringement” on Jake’n’Bake’s old 2018 broadcast, where moments of the Kanye West song can be heard. The email warned JakeNBake could have his channel “terminated” if another offense is uncovered.

“It was from an outdoor IRL stream. I probably passed by a shop, or was in a place that was playing the song in the background… I’m now in danger of losing everything,” the Twitch star continued. “How is this even realistic?”

Jake’n’Bake, who admitted on-stream soon after that Twitch is “80% of his life,” is now rushing to download and clear his video back-catalog — 13,00 past VODS worth — in an effort to avoid that next promised DMCA strike.

“The biggest thing for me, and I think a lot of people are the same, because my stuff is IRL, there’s like three years of home videos. I love that they’re all in one place, and accessible,” he explained.

“It’s not like I just played games… for me, it’s like, in my heart, all these memories, and experiences. It’s disappointing because it just got a bit more real.”

“My fear is if I counter-ping this, and it chimes like a little ‘tick’, and some computer just turns at me and goes through everything like ‘f*ck you, f*ck you, f*ck you’… and starts pinging me for everything I’ve done! Maybe I should just delete everything so that can’t get me.”

He added later, “It’s kind of nuts how this is just controlling my life now. This was two and a half years ago! I don’t really know what to do except delete everything, which just sucks. There’s nothing else I can really do.”

The DMCA drama, unfortunately, looks set to continue into the foreseeable future on Twitch, with the platform sticking to their guns on the copyright stance.

We can layout the big names hit by the wave so far ⁠— Courage, BrookeAB, Scump, Ninja, Sonii, Mongraal, Lirik… the list goes on ⁠— and there’ll likely be more caught in the crackdown soon. Twitch has yet to comment on the most recent strikes.
