YouTube stars Tana Mongeau and David Dobrik shook up the internet after a cryptic Tweet suggested they were dating — and now, they’re finally addressing the viral rumors.

Tana Mongeau’s Tweet, posted on January 5, suggested an even closer relationship between the already friendly YouTubers, claiming that she had been texting with Dobrik regularly in wake of her split with husband Jake Paul.

“For the past two days I’ve been coincidentally napping when David texted me, ‘What are you doing?’” she wrote. “So I just changed his text tone to an alarm tone, because 2020 is not a year of f***ing up my bag.”

The internet quickly lit up with speculation that Mongeau and Dobrik had become romantically involved, with Mongeau even retweeting a news article regarding the rumors — which didn’t help the conjecture.

However, it doesn’t look these two social media celebs are getting cozy, according to two separate Tweets published three days later.

On January 8, Mongeau posted a screenshot of her Facetime call with Dobrik, writing, “We’d like to be addressing these rumors in private, smh.”

Dobrik likewise weighed in on the subject in reply to a Tweet from Life & Style, who asked, “So, are y’all dating or what?”

“R y’all on crack?” Dobrik replied, putting any notion of their supposed romance to bed in the span of a single question.

Thus, it seems that Mongeau’s alleged tryst with Dobrik isn’t an actual thing, in spite of her emotional break from Jake Paul, as announced in an Instagram post on January 2.

“For right now, we both are taking a break to focus on our own very crazy lives,” Mongeau explained. “I’ll never know what the future holds and I will always love Jake and everything we did.”

Their split followed Mongeau’s equally emotional video on December 29, where she came clean about the state of her “unhappy” relationship with Paul and claimed that she had “lost herself” in their marriage.

Despite their break, Mongeau is still on the Jake Paul hype train, hosting his press conference against opponent AnEsonGib ahead of their January 30 boxing match — leaving their already confusing relationship even more murky as fans wait for further news.
