Since originally fuelling dating rumours last month with a series of suggestive social media posts, fans believe that Mongeau is continuing to make it clear that Addison Rae is definitely on her radar in her latest TikTok.

Many believe that the TikTok, which Mongeau cheekily subtitled – “When I don’t like a guy I take his girlfriend” – was another thinly-veiled reference of her intention to “steal” Addison from ex-boyfriend Bryce Hall.


When one user tagged Addison’s ex and commented in response to the TikTok: “you can say @brycehall”, Tana responding by commenting “HAHAHAHAHA”, neither confirming nor denying the commenter’s inference that this TikTok was also about Addison.

Other commenters, however, weren’t so enthusiastic about Mongeau’s latest TikTok. One user noted that “it’s kind of creepy” how “obsessed” she is with Addison, whilst another accused Mongeau of “forcing a sexuality” on the TikTok star.


Mongeau has always been public about her fluid sexuality, and was previously in a high-profile “throuple” with former Disney star Bella Thorne.

During US Pride Month in June, she confirmed her sexual orientation and came out as pansexual in an emotional Instagram post.

Meanwhile, Rae has kept mostly quiet about her sexuality, although rumors started circulating in July that she was bisexual after she posted a TikTok lip-syncing to a supposed “lesbian anthem”.

Before her high-profile marriage to Jake Paul, Tana was in a polyamorous relationship with ex-Disney star Bella Thorne.

How did the ‘Taddison’ rumors start?

When Addison Rae and Bryce Hall amicably ended their on-off relationship for good, it didn’t take Mongeau long to shoot her shot.

In a TikTok showing Mongeau looking admirably at Addison Rae recreating a scene racy from movie Mamma Mia, she said that she was “tired of acting straight” and informed Rae that she was “officially getting at [her]”.

Things then heated up when Rae seemingly slid into the YouTube star’s DMs, with Mongeau being sure to express her excitement (and make sure Addison’s ex Bryce Hall knows) in an Instagram story.

It looks like Addison Rae slid into Tana’s DMs after seeing her TikToks.

Whilst it is unclear how much the two are talking behind the scenes, Mongeau has continued to make sure her feelings for Rae are known.

In another TikTok posted towards the end of last month, Mongeau continued to make her feelings known, lip-syncing to the song “I like you, I don’t give a f*** ’bout your boyfriend” as pictures of Addison (including one of her and Bryce), played in the background.

This TikTok certainly caught the attention of fans in the comment section, with several TikTok influencers also showing their support for this pairing.

Aliyah Marie excitedly christened the pair “TADDISON [sic]”, whilst Anna Grace McDaniel exclaimed that the two would make a great “power couple.”


Hashinshin claims FBI cleared him of sexual harassment allegations

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.


Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.


“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.


“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”


Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.


“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
