YouTube stars Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau tied the knot in late July after two months of publicly dating – but rumors of infidelity quickly surrounded the couple, thanks to a few of Paul’s social media posts.
That’s not all: Paul likewise posed for a photoshoot with another group of models a month later, prompting his wife to upload a photoshopped pic of herself plastered across the womens’ faces.
Between Mongeau’s “family emergency” just after their marriage and Paul being spotted with ex-girlfriend Erika Costell, things were looking grim for the couple in the eyes of concerned fans – but the YouTubers finally reunited for a video to finally explain their hiatus in late September.
In their video, both Jake and Tana admitted they’d been focusing on living their lives “off of social media,” with Mongeau claiming they’d had to “sacrifice clout for their own emotions” in wake of their wedding.600
“…there was so much momentum up until this wedding, and then you get married, and it’s like, ‘Now what?’” Tana explained. “…all of these emergencies happened, and obviously Jake’s life still kept going, and that left so much room for the public to scrutinize.”
She went on to clarify that both she and Jake still have “our own lives” and are doing their best to “mesh” – but, of course, the two couldn’t continue the video without addressing the elephant in the room.
“When it comes to small, in the moment decisions, I think we can all come to the conclusion that Jake Paul might not be the best at them,” Tana laughed, with Jake admitting that he’d been drunk when posting his model-filled Instagram pic.
Despite the overwhelming speculation around the couple, it looks like “Jana” is here to stay – although we can’t guarantee that Jake won’t continue to get himself in trouble, considering his history of divisive social media posts.
