YouTuber Jake Paul tied the knot with MTV starlet Tana Mongeau in July – but a recent video from his bride is raising eyebrows across the net in regards to their relationship status.

While both Mongeau and Paul have admitted to having an “open marriage,” Tana has been decidedly open about her apparent dislike of this title, as revealed in a Q & A video in late November.

Speculation surrounding their marriage increased following Jake Paul’s teaser of song “These Days” on December 3, which appears to be about his ex-girlfriend, Alissa Violet – but that’s not the only issue causing fan concern.

Mongeau uploaded a vlog on December 4 on her second channel titled, “I took my girlfriend’s phone and flirted with my best friend. Prank????”

Although her best friend is, without question, Imari, the “girlfriend” in her title ended up referring to former Disney star Noah Cyrus, who has been known to playfully flirt with Mongeau in the past.

Needless to say, the title of the video spawned ample questioning across her fanbase, who scrambled across social media to question Noah on the actual details of her relationship with Mongeau.

Thankfully, their queries didn’t go unanswered for long, with Noah assuring critics that she and Tana are merely friends in an Instagram story shortly thereafter.

“Guys, we are FRIENDS,” Noah wrote in response to the drama. “Relax.”

Noah Cyrus, InstagramFormer Disney star Noah Cyrus assured fans that she and Tana Mongeau are merely close friends.

While she may have allayed fan fears for now, this wouldn’t be the first time the two celebs have joked about being “flirty” with each other. In fact, the two made rounds after uploading a video to Instagram in mid-September which featured an equally leading caption.

“Tana tastes like skittles…what?” Cyrus wrote of the video, where she seductively licked a knife before closing in on Tana’s face. “I could really taste the rainbow, what?”

That’s not all: Cyrus even poked fun at Jake and claimed that she was “gonna f*** your b***” – a statement that he replied to with a lackluster, “God d***.”

Mongeau has since announced a short hiatus from social media in wake of Paul’s song announcement, claiming that she hopes to “advocate for mental health awareness” and remain “authentic” to her brand – a vacay that fans are encouraging her to take after suffering a tumultuous 2019.

Dream responds to #dreamwaswrong trending on Twitter

YouTuber and Minecraft content creator Dream has finally responded to the #dreamwaswrong trend on Twitter, using his DreamWasTaken account to assert he disavows the behavior displayed by some of his fans.

Dream and his cohorts, including known creators like Tommyinnit and GeorgeNotFound, are incredibly popular on YouTube and beyond thanks to an infinitum of Dream Team videos and the Dream SMP server.

While that level of fame means possibility for mainstream collaboration with the likes of superstar TikTok influencer Addison Rae, it also comes with downsides. Notably, #dreamwaswrong began trending on Twitter as fans blamed Dream for encouraging his stans, some of whom are prone to producing inappropriate fan art involving minors.

As critics explain, Dream’s love for his fans supposedly equates to egging on the ways they express their fandom — thereby supporting the production of “CP.” In response, he explained: “I’ve said this before but don’t ship creators that are uncomfortable with it, and especially not minors. It’s disgusting to draw NSFW stuff about minors or anyone that hasn’t explicitly said it’s fine.”

After addressing the drama directly, by reaffirming that “NSFW stuff about minors” is distasteful, Dream continued on to explain why it’s unfair to misgeneralize his role in the production of such content.

In a follow-up tweet aimed at defending his support for his fans, the Minecraft YouTuber said, “With 16 million subscribers that’s 1 out of every 480 people IN THE WORLD that are subscribed. There’s bound to be thousands of terrible people, but there’s also bound to be millions of great ones. If you’re looking for hate or disgusting stuff, you’ll find it. Stop looking.”

As he shows, boasting 16 million subscribers on YouTube means that “out of every 480 people in the world,” at least one is a fan of Dream’s content. That is an enormous quantity of supporters, and it should not be surprising that there are “thousands of terrible people” within the millions of fans.

This sentiment appears to be echoed by his fans — as many have resurfaced earlier videos showing that the content creator has never specifically encouraged the creation of relationship fanfiction or “CP.”

It remains unclear how satisfied people are with Dream’s response, but the overall sentiment appears to be positive. While it feels unreasonable to expect a creator to be wholly responsible for the actions of their audience, this incident does provide a cautionary tale.

Considering this “disgusting” group of Dream’s stans, the prevailing community critique remains: If you are an influencer, you have some obligation to directly and quickly curtail negative behavior by those you influence.
