Controversial YouTubers Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau have been fairly public about their sudden romance – and now, the two are taking things a step further, by officially tying the knot just two months into their relationship.
During Mongeau’s 21st birthday bash in Las Vegas, Nevada, Paul got down on one knee to pop the question – a proposal that the YouTube-turned-MTV starlet readily accepted.
While traditional engagements generally give a short buffer period before the wedding kicks off, these two YouTubers aren’t wasting any time: in fact, the couple may have announced an “official” date of their upcoming marriage.
A source from celebrity news outlet Hollywood Life revealed that the couple plans to tie the knot on Friday, June 28 – just 4 days after Paul’s nightclub proposal.
The wedding promises to be a “wild, Las Vegas ceremony,” with Paul’s engagement having been planned a week in advance – but not everything is sunshine and roses, despite the brains behind Logan Paul’s incredible ‘Luau’ party organizing his little brother’s upcoming union.

Not everyone is convinced that the YouTubers’ engagement is the real deal, despite an emotional reaction from Hollywood star Bella Thorne, who posted a teary-eyed selfie to Instagram with the caption, “When your ex gets engaged.”
While many critics are pointing out how quickly the couple is progressing their relationship, they wouldn’t be the first YouTubers to completely dupe their audience with a “fake wedding,” by far.
15-year-old YouTuber Danielle Cohn shocked the internet after announcing her pregnancy in early April, going on to post photos of her “wedding” in Las Vegas – which later turned out to be a complete hoax, as she later revealed in a series of Instagram videos with her boyfriend.
The entire ordeal earned Cohn ample backlash, with many fans outraged that the YouTuber would “joke” about such a serious topic at her age.

We never meant to hurt anyone. It was for entertainment like all youtubers do. We got inspired by 13 reason why and wanted to do a series. To spread awareness to young girls. Being called fat and pregnant everyday. I wanted to give the haters something to talk about. In the end people got hurt. Mikey and I are truly sorry.
While Mongeau has yet to pull such a stunt, the couple have previously joked about getting married and even started a fake “family channel” together, even promising an upcoming “JanaCon” to make up for Mongeau’s disastrous “Tana Con” from June 2018.
