Mongeau even wore a top to Jake’s press conference with boxing opponent AnEsonGib that read, “We’re not dating,” further putting to bed any rumors that the two were still together.
However, it seems that the youngest Paul brother has found a new love in wake of his “divorce,” as told in a January 8 interview with PageSix.
Instead of a new lady, though, Paul seems to have fallen for the sport of boxing, with the YouTuber confirming that he no longer has feelings for Mongeau.
“Tana’s been super supportive. We ended things on great terms, we’re friends,” he said of his marriage. “I guess I fell in love with the sport of boxing and fell out of love with Tana.”
In fact, the Team 10 founder likewise stated that his union with Mongeau felt “forced,” calling it “one of the craziest weddings ever.”
“We kind of weren’t in control of anything and it kind of wasn’t organized,” he said of the extravagant Las Vegas ceremony. “It was just a lot of stress. It felt forced, in a way. It was just weird. I agree with her.”
For now, Paul is looking forward to his bout with fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, which is scheduled for January 30 in Miami, Florida — although he admitted that Gib is merely a “doormat” on his way to defeating KSI as revenge for beating his brother Logan Paul's defeat in their November 9 rematch.
With pride, glory, and revenge on the line, Jake is entering the ring as a bachelor with high hopes for taking his first-ever professional boxing match — something he’s more keen on than getting a new girlfriend, at least for the moment.
