YouTube stars Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau “unofficially” tied the knot after just two months of dating in late July – but rumors of infidelity are already encircling the couple, after Paul was allegedly spotted with ex-girlfriend Erika Costell.

Photos of the ex-couple went viral online on August 19, after the two were caught grabbing lunch together by a fan – but their reunion was hardly met with optimism.

Mongeau uploaded her response to the drama via her Instagram story shortly thereafter, where she modified the lyrics of Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” to sing, “…even actually got married and for Jake I’m so thankful, except when he goes out with his ex and I find out on Twitter.”

Despite public outrage at Paul appearing to get cozy with his ex, not everyone is convinced that Jake was actually in the viral photos: in fact, older brother Logan Paul is staunchly defending his little bro, as stated during an episode of his “imPaulsive” podcast on August 21.

“Someone was eating lunch with my brother’s ex-girlfriend, Erika Costel, and the whole internet is saying that it was Jake, but… are we sure?” Logan said of the drama, zooming in on the photo. “…this looks like a deepfake.”

This wouldn’t be the first time Logan has come to bat for his younger brother, either: the internet star similarly called the photos into question in a Tweet on August 19, writing, “Are we SURE that’s Jake?”

While it’s unclear if Logan is actually being serious, Jake himself appeared to duck accusations in his own Tweet on the subject, referencing Shaggy’s hit single by simply stating, “Wasn’t me.”

However, the two internet stars weren’t just caught grabbing lunch: the two were also seen in videos together at former Team 10 member Justin Roberts’ birthday party that same day, further adding fuel to rumors of a potential, secret tryst.

With Mongeau admitting that their wedding wasn’t exactly legal and the fight that threw down during the ceremony proven to be staged, fans and critics alike are still uncertain if “Jana” is the real deal – and Jake’s alleged outing with Erika makes matters even murkier than they already were.

Dixie D’Amelio’s fans think her latest song, ‘One Whole Day,’ is a diss track aimed at her ex-boyfriend, Griffin Johnson, but she claimed it isn’t and explained what it’s really about.

Dixie D’Amelio rocked the world with the release of her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’ The lyrics tell how she had a falling out with a boyfriend but was only sad for one whole day and shed a single tear.

Her fans assume the song is about her break up with Griffin Johnson and think it’s her way of throwing him some shade. However, Dixie D’Amelio recently answered some questions about the song on YouTube, and she explained that it’s not a diss track.

Dixie D’Amelio collaborated with Wiz Khalifa to produce her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’

“Being sad is not what the song is about,” she said, without mentioning Griffin Johnson’s name. “The song is basically about how I am only going to be sad for one day from a breakup.”

“When you are treated in a way where you’re not number one or a number one priority or shown true care and love and affection more than anyone else, there’s no point in being upset about it for more than one day,” she added.

It’s reasonable to assume this might have been an issue in Dixie D’Amelio’s relationship with Griffin Johnson. Either way, the point is, it’s more about the personal realization she had rather than the break-up itself.

Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johnson were together for a while, but things didn’t work out.

“The song does mean a lot to me because I’ve spent a lot of my life being upset about things for too long,” she said. “If a person… cannot treat me with respect… then I don’t want them in my life, and I will not be upset about it for more than one whole day.”

“That’s kind of my idea of the song. It’s not a diss in any way. It’s… showing self-love… to myself,” she added. “It’s important to love yourself. It’s important to know you’re worth, so that’s… what it’s all about.”

Segment begins at 1:30.

‘One Whole Day’ might refer to some of the experiences and feelings Dixie D’Amelio had during her break-up with Griffin Johnson, but it’s not intended to be a diss track in any way, shape, or form.

The song’s meaning runs much deeper than that. It’s about feeling a sense of self-love and self-worth during a break-up, no matter how sad it can be in the short-term.
