YouTuber Jake Paul has moved on from his fast-paced romance with MTV starlet Tana Mongeau and is now dating actress Julia Rose — but his way of asking her out raised an eyebrow from older brother Logan.

Jake Paul revealed his plan to officially ask out Rose during a vlog in late March, which involved several exotic animals and a handmade poster.

While visiting an exotic animal shelter, Paul enlisted the help of a monkey, who he had hold up a sign asking the actress to be his girlfriend.

YouTuber Jake Paul has begun a new romance with actress and reality TV star Julia Rose.

However, his efforts didn’t pan out as planned, with Rose appearing to be flummoxed by the sudden public display of affection and saying that she would be the chimpanzee’s girlfriend, instead.

Although she later admitted to being put on the spot, her hilarious way of brushing off Jake’s affections drew a laugh from his older brother, Logan Paul, during an episode of his imPaulsive podcast just a few days later.

Logan brought up his hilariously bungled proposal halfway through the episode, which his little brother admitted was “hilarious” and “so awkward.”

Although Julia and Jake are officially dating, his attempts at asking her out didn’t go as planned.

“Man, I hate to say this… her not saying yes when you had the monkey give her the sign to ask her to be your girlfriend was probably one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen,” Logan joked.

That’s not the worst of his botched efforts either; Jake even revealed that he’d paid for a plane to fly by his yacht with a huge sign that had a similar message, but the aircraft was too far away from the boat for Julia to see.

Despite admitting to the awkwardness of the whole situation, he later explained why Julia was so wary about public “proposals,” claiming that she’d been put on the spot by surprise marriage proposals in the past.

Jake Paul hatched a bizarre plan to ask out Julia Rose – but she seemed put off by his sudden public display of affection.

“She said yes to them because she got asked in front of large groups of people,” he explained. “Like, hundreds of people. So this is like, PTSD for her. But I didn’t think it was gonna trigger that.”

Thankfully, Jake and Julia are now an official item despite his humorous slip-up, which also brings awareness to the sometimes high-pressure nature of public proposals.

TikToker claims David Dobrik stole his designs for Dispo app

A popular TikToker is claiming that he came up with the design rebrand for YouTube Star David Dobrik’s ‘Dispo’ photo app, and even met with the influencer before seeing his ideas used in the final product.

Dobrik’s ‘Disposable’ app came out in December 2019, and was recently rebranded as ‘Dispo,’ a photo-sharing social media app with a retro spin on your regular Instagram clone.

Instead of being able to see and edit your pictures instantly, you have to wait until 9 AM the next day for them to “develop,” and can’t touch them up beforehand – much like a disposable film camera, hence the name.

Despite the creative idea, Dobrik is coming under fire from those who think he stole some of the designs for his Dispo rebrand from TikToker ‘karimxismail,’ based on a series of TikToks posted before the app came out.

Back on Sept. 18, Ismail posted what was basically a five-part video application attempting to get the attention of Dobrik to work on Dispo, a name he suggests during the above clip.

The YouTuber even commented on one of Ismail’s TikToks a day later on Sept. 19 calling his ideas “dope,” adding further credibility to his side of the story where he got completely cut out of the deal.

Neither mentioned the project again until news broke that Dispo had received a $4 million investment from Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian’s venture fund.

Shortly after that announcement, Karim posted two TikToks detailing his experience with Dobrik ahead of the brand’s reveal, claiming he met with the YouTuber and Natalie Mariduena, Dobrik’s assistant and business partner. According to him, both saw his ideas/designs and “loved them.”

But after a “brief correspondence,” Karim said that the team told him they were “going in a different direction.” He noted that Dobrik and his team did trademark the Dispo name six days after his initial video, but he doesn’t seem to be upset with David for potentially using his idea at all.

“They said they came up with it first,” Karim said about the Dispo name. “Whatever the names end up being, I know David would never take the features or designs I created. Now let me make it abundantly clear, I was a David Dobrik fan and I still am.”

As one would expect, some debate has broken out on social media between those who think the YouTuber shamelessly swiped the name and those who are adamant in defending Dobrik’s credibility.

However, Dobrik himself hasn’t commented on the issue at the time of writing, and as this scandal doesn’t seem likely to derail Dispo, we wouldn’t count on him saying anything at all.
