Top YouTuber Jake Paul tied the knot with fiance Tana Mongeau in late July – but despite putting a ring on one of the net’s biggest stars, he was caught out with his ex-girlfriend shortly thereafter.

Pictures flooded the net of what appeared to be Paul and model Erika Costell grabbing lunch in mid-August, sending fans into a frenzy since the Team 10 founder had just said his vows not a few weeks earlier.

Despite the speculation, Jake denied that he was ever in the pictures, with older brother Logan Paul corroborating his story and claiming that a fan had edited the photo using deepfake technology.

KEEMSTAR, TwitterJake Paul was spotted grabbing lunch with ex-girlfriend Erika Costell a few weeks after tying the knot with Tana Mongeau.

However, it looks like Jake is backing down on his previous statements, as told on his Instagram story in response to a fan’s question concerning his alleged meet-up.

According to Paul, he and Costell continue to have a friendly relationship in spite of fan concerns in light of his marriage to Mongeau.

“Exes can be friends right?” Jake replied. “Or just because ‘stans’ don’t like that and get butt hurt, we’re not supposed to be?”

Jake Paul, InstagramJake Paul claimed that he and Erika Costell are on friendly terms – in spite of denying his involvement in their August meetup.

Although it would seem that these exes are on good terms, it doesn’t look like Costell is a fan of his new relationship, as she threw a little shade toward Jake and Tana’s marriage during an interview around the same time.

“…we also got fake married in Vegas,” Erika said of her past with Jake. “Sounds a little familiar. …I think they like the controversy. I think it gets them going. I don’t know, because I don’t do it, but to each their own. It’s working, yeah.”

Even Mongeau expressed a bit of exasperation after learning of their hangout in August, subtweeting the issue with an “lol wtf” and later admitting that she was only made aware of the meeting thanks to social media.

In spite of the drama, Mongeau claims that she loves her hubby “very much,” so it doesn’t look like “Jana” is going away anytime soon – even if fans aren’t happy with he and Costell remaining on amicable terms.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
