YouTube stars Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul “unofficially” tied the knot after just two months of dating, but some fans aren’t convinced that the couple will last - and one top YouTuber isn’t solid on their relationship, either.


Popular YouTuber Shane Dawson gave his thoughts on their marriage during an interview with Clevver News on August 22, where he claimed that he had “a lot of questions” regarding the legitimacy of their union.

“Have they even seen each other?” the YouTuber questioned, likely due to Mongeau skipping her honeymoon due to a family emergency. “There’s a lot of questions. But I also don’t care about the answers. And I’m thirty-one. Know what I mean?”

Dawson likewise threw some subtle shade toward the couple for getting married so soon, after debunking rumors that he’d cautioned Mongeau against tying the knot with Paul.

“You know those people who you’re like, I love them, they’re like family… but there’s certain things where you just don’t look at it?” Dawson continued. “That’s one of them. ...I don’t know, it’s weird.”

one of the things about the wedding that was so beautiful to me was the love from my friends- family i should say. walking out to each one of your friends and seeing them break down and cry because you’re standing in front of them... as a bride... are some of the craziest moments i’ve ever experienced.. to tangibly see all of the love in your life at one place at once is the most beautiful and overwhelming feeling.. to walk down the aisle arms interlocked with your best friend in the whole world exchanging a look worth a thousand words... to see the amount of people come out to support love and feel it themselves.. crazy. no matter where things go, in that moment at that time, the love i felt was undeniable.. being so tangibly assured that your friends are your family and love is everywhere, is something i’ll be so grateful for. I FUCKING LOVE MY FAMILY! i can’t believe i’m still posting wedding pics lmao I’M SORRY I LOVE LOVE

The YouTube star also reacted to rumors of Paul cheating with ex-girlfriend Erika Costell: although he didn’t make any verbal statements on the subject, his exaggerated “shocked” expressions spoke for him.

Paul himself has denied any involvement with the scandal, claiming that he wasn’t actually in the viral photos taken by fan, with older brother Logan Paul backing up his explanation of the debacle.

Jake Paul was spotted grabbing lunch with ex-girlfriend Erika Costell - but he's denying that it was actually him in the photos.


Dawson’s thoughts on the young YouTubers’ union follows his highly-acclaimed documentary series over Jake Paul in late 2018, which was met with some controversy due to his treatment of the term “sociopath.”

Dawson also based a series around Tana Mongeau that same year, following the disastrous aftermath of her “TanaCon” event, which was meant to rival “VidCon.”


With both YouTubers having been the subject of Dawsons’ docuseries, their union “makes sense” to him, but he advised both parties to focus on their own projects in light of the drama surrounding their marriage - a wedding that Mongeau admitted wasn’t actually legal.
