YouTuber Tana Mongeau has opened up on her YouTube hiatus, apologizing to her audience and explaining the reasons why she decided to take this step heading into 2020.

The 21-year-old became an internet sensation throughout 2019, with her marriage to Jake Paul taking over social media as fans tuned in to watch their relationship dynamic, and even try to figure out if it was legitimate.

The American even landed her own MTV reality show, but at the end of 2019, the couple announced that they were taking a break. Following a video uploaded to her channel on December 29 discussing the separation, Mongeau’s channel has been dormant, with no videos uploaded in almost three weeks.

Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau announced their separation in December 2019.

On January 15, Mongeau addressed her disappearance from the platform, apologizing to fans who have been anxiously waiting for her next upload and explaining the reasons behind her sabbatical.

“Sorry for how long I haven’t uploaded,” she wrote on Twitter. “It won’t happen again this year. I’ve been trying to [take a] break for my mental and physical health, which are both failing miserably.”

The YouTube star did confirm that while she hasn’t been recording footage for her channel, the MTV cameras have continued filming her during her hiatus for her show Tana Turns 21, meaning her fans can see what happened during her time away.

This isn’t the first time that Tana has decided to step away from social media, announcing that she was taking a break away from Twitter and Instagram back in early December when Jake Paul released a song talking about how he missed his ex-girlfriend Alissa Violet.

In the post on December 4, the 21-year-old said she wanted to “advocate for authenticity and mental health awareness,” and that she felt she was “succumbing to the pressure of the highlight reel” that comes with being a star online.

For those eager to see Mongeau return to YouTube, she confirmed that will be uploading a new video “as soon as possible,” which will be a recap of her 2019.

Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
