YouTube stars Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau announced the end to their short-lived marriage in early 2020 after a tumultuous few months in their romance — but now the pair have been spotted together again, this time getting cozy in Miami.

Paul and Mongeau shocked the internet by announcing their surprise engagement at Tana’s 21st birthday party in Las Vegas last summer, following ample speculation from fans that the two were hiding an undercover romance.

The two tied the knot not long after, although both parties admitted later down the road that nothing had been inked on paper, with Mongeau arguing that “legally binding yourself to someone takes away the love.”

YouTubers Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul were at the forefront of internet buzz for much of 2019, following their quick and surprising marriage that summer.

With Paul later being seen with ex-girlfriend Erika Costell and Mongeau making several concerning Tweets about their marriage, it came as little surprise to fans when the pair called it quits in January 2020 — but now, it seems that the two could be on speaking terms, once again.

Paul uploaded one of his usual chaotic vlogs on June 25, where he and his squad partied in Miami, Florida — but one unusual element came with the appearance of Mongeau, who embraced her ex-hubby as the two waited on the runway for their private jet.

Tana and Jake jokingly addressed their reunion on the runway, but didn’t go into specifics as to why they were traveling together.

“I can’t even look at the camera right now,” Mongeau joked after Jake addressed their reunion.

“What do we say?” Jake continued. “We’ll talk about it later.”

“Jake and I area actually staying six feet [apart],” Mongeau jabbed once they had landed in Florida. “Not for [redacted] reasons, just life.”

“So, you’re my wife…” Jake replied.

“Say ‘ex-wife,’” Tana corrected.

The two later went on Omegle for a humorous segment surprising fans — and although they didn’t explain why they had reunited for the spontaneous trip, viewers are speculating that Paul’s current girlfriend might not be too pleased with the development.

“Is it me or Julia is gonna be pissed when she watches this?” one fan commented.

“And nobody’s gonna talk about his ex acting like they still a thing?” another wrote.

While other fans are congratulating the two for maintaining a close friendship in wake of their split, it seems that others are critical of their reunion, as well as Paul throwing a huge party in the middle of current world events.

The two have yet to speak out on the subject via social media at the time of writing.

Who is Granny? The rising Twitch star who streams as a grandma

Twitch is home to some pretty outlandish personalities, but none may be as unique as the rising streamer known only as Granny.

Dressed in a bright white wig, oversized glasses, and attire that you could have sworn you’ve seen the elderly wear, Granny takes the character to the extreme.

If you thought the outfit or persona was the limit of the character, think again. Just like how Dr Disrespect streams from his legendary “arena,” Granny has her own broadcast center of sorts.

From Granny’s house to Twitch

Her streams begin, amusingly enough, with an old house in a green meadow surrounded by rainbows, flowers and chirping birds.

After introducing herself, talking to viewers from inside the big pink home that looks like it’s ripped from either Lord of the Rings or Teletubbies, the gameplay kicks off.

What makes Granny’s choice of games so hilarious is that she’s made a habit of streaming titles such as Dead by Daylight, which are the complete opposite of the happy-go-lucky nature of the intro.

Fans are absolutely loving it. Since starting the stream, Granny has amassed nearly 30,000 followers and is growing on other platforms such as YouTube.

Climbing the Twitch ranks

Speaking with Dexerto, the entertainer refused to break character, further, cementing the concept that this was a grandma streaming on the Amazon-owned platform.

Granny claims it all began when she was working for a finance firm in New York City for three years and was beginning to feel worn out.

“Right around that time, Red Dead Redemption 2 came out and I found a huge comfort being immersed in that world while I took time to recover and figure out my next steps,” the streamer explained.

“When Red Dead Online was released I started to make friends on the proximity voice chat and they told me I should try my hand at streaming. In February 2019 I moved to New Zealand to go all-in on starting a Twitch channel, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision.”

That said, she does have plans to return to New York at some point in 2021, so fans should be sure to be on the lookout for that.

While the climb up the Twitch ranks has been a journey since it first began in January of 2019, the streamer does have a few favorite moments.

“A couple of exciting milestones along the way have been Trixie Mattel and TPAIN discovering the stream,” she happily noted. “They love joining in now and again to help repair the ice cream machines in Dead By Daylight.”

Going into 2021, Granny is definitely going to be one of the streamers to watch out for, especially if she continues to get noticed by some larger members of the community.
