After a nightclub engagement, live-streamed marriage, and highly publicized breakup, YouTube stars Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau have gone their separate ways — but it looks like Paul is already entertaining new prospects.

Although Mongeau assured the net that “Jana” wasn’t going anywhere, the MTV starlet posted a soul-bearing video in early January, claiming that she’d “lost” herself in her marriage to Jake and was “unhappy” with how their relationship was portrayed in the media.

The YouTubers parted ways shortly thereafter, announcing the news in two separate Instagram posts that revealed their breakup had occurred on mutual terms and that things were still friendly between them.

While Tana admitted that she’s currently focusing on herself and “dating weed,” it seems that the youngest Paul brother is already beginning another romance, as revealed during a January 23 episode of Mike Majlak’s “The Night Shift.”

According to Jake, things are still friendly between him and his ex-spouse, but he has been in talks with another gal outside of the public eye.

“I have been talking to a girl a little bit,” Jake admitted. “It’s been completely off-camera. That’s super healthy. …it’s good to have real relationships off-camera that you value, and you know that that person genuinely cares about you and isn’t just there to be in content and get clout out of the situation.”

Even though Jake didn’t go as far as to name her, Majlak claimed that his new lady love “definitely doesn’t need the clout,” spurring speculation that the Team 10 founder is seeing another popular content creator in the space.

In the meantime, Mongeau has been preparing for the launch of her new company, and much like Jake has been sequestering herself away with work ahead of her forthcoming announcement.

With Tana being a featured creator at VidCon London and Jake set to box AnEsonGib, it seems like things are looking up for both YouTubers as they recover from their recent breakup.

Twitch star Jake “Jake’n’Bake” Abramson has revealed he could be “in danger of losing everything” he’s built on his channel after an old IRL clip from more than two years ago was hit with a DMCA copyright strike due to a Kanye West song.

The ongoing Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) drama sweeping across Twitch has spared no one from its reach. The new Twitch crackdown, which sees streamers pinged for licensed music on broadcasts, is the hot topic in the community right now.

One by one, Twitch’s biggest stars have been sucked into the DMCA drama; Imane “Pokimane” Anys was forced to delete her streaming back-catalog last week, and Michael “shroud” Grzesiek has called for stars to “unite” against the crackdown.

DragonForce’s Herman Li was also banned after DMCA flagged his own music.

Jake’n’Bake has become the latest Twitch streamer caught up in the DMCA drama.

Now, the latest star to find himself on the DMCA frontlines is Jake’n’Bake. The 30-year-old IRL star is one of the Amazon-owned platform’s biggest stars. He boasts nearly 500k followers, but that may now be in danger.

Jake’n’Bake revealed on Oct. 29 that he had been hit with a copyright infringement from Twitch. The kicker? The clip in question was from a May 9 stream all the way back in 2018, which contained just mere seconds of Kanye West’s ‘Lift Yourself.’

Jake’n’Bake gets DMCA strike for old Twitch clip

“Just to be clear… this is a 30-second clip from two and a half years ago,” Abramson wrote on Twitter soon after receiving the DMCA email.

The Twitch email detailed a “claimed infringement” on Jake’n’Bake’s old 2018 broadcast, where moments of the Kanye West song can be heard. The email warned JakeNBake could have his channel “terminated” if another offense is uncovered.

“It was from an outdoor IRL stream. I probably passed by a shop, or was in a place that was playing the song in the background… I’m now in danger of losing everything,” the Twitch star continued. “How is this even realistic?”

Jake’n’Bake, who admitted on-stream soon after that Twitch is “80% of his life,” is now rushing to download and clear his video back-catalog — 13,00 past VODS worth — in an effort to avoid that next promised DMCA strike.

“The biggest thing for me, and I think a lot of people are the same, because my stuff is IRL, there’s like three years of home videos. I love that they’re all in one place, and accessible,” he explained.

“It’s not like I just played games… for me, it’s like, in my heart, all these memories, and experiences. It’s disappointing because it just got a bit more real.”

“My fear is if I counter-ping this, and it chimes like a little ‘tick’, and some computer just turns at me and goes through everything like ‘f*ck you, f*ck you, f*ck you’… and starts pinging me for everything I’ve done! Maybe I should just delete everything so that can’t get me.”

He added later, “It’s kind of nuts how this is just controlling my life now. This was two and a half years ago! I don’t really know what to do except delete everything, which just sucks. There’s nothing else I can really do.”

The DMCA drama, unfortunately, looks set to continue into the foreseeable future on Twitch, with the platform sticking to their guns on the copyright stance.

We can layout the big names hit by the wave so far ⁠— Courage, BrookeAB, Scump, Ninja, Sonii, Mongraal, Lirik… the list goes on ⁠— and there’ll likely be more caught in the crackdown soon. Twitch has yet to comment on the most recent strikes.
