YouTube-turned-MTV starlet Tana Mongeau notably parted ways with hubby Jake Paul in early January — but their romance may not be completely in the can.

Tana uploaded an emotionally charged video in late December, where she admitted that she was “unhappy” with how her marriage to Paul was portrayed in the media and felt she’d “lost” herself in their relationship.

Shortly thereafter, both parties took to Instagram to announce their split — but despite Mongeau wearing a top that read “We’re not dating” during her hosting duties for her ex-beau’s boxing press conference, the spark may not have completely died out between them.

In an interview with Hollywood Life on January 17, “Tana Mojo” admitted that she and her former spouse continue to talk, and are in the process of taking what she called a “break” from their highly publicized marriage.

“A lot’s going on with us,” she said of their relationship. “I don’t know, we’re kind of like, on a ‘break,’ but we’re still talking, chilling. Living life. I don’t know, you know — figuring it out.”

This statement holds up with her initial Instagram status on the topic, which she also jokingly called a “we’re taking a break” post.

“I’m happy to still be able to sit with Jake and laugh as we do this,” she wrote, “but for right now we both are taking a break to focus on our own very crazy lives… I’ll never know what the future holds and I will always love Jake and everything we did.”

Jake wasn’t the only YouTuber Tana spoke out on during her interview with Hollywood Life, either: she also dispelled rumors of dating vlogger David Dobrik, completely shutting down any speculation that the two are secretly schmoozing.

“Imagine a world where David Dobrik would date me,” she laughed. “…he is like my homie, and I’m just like, super inspired by him and everything he does. Imagine a world!”

While Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul may be on a “break,” the star is still close with her “bestie” in wake of their split.

For now, it looks like Mongeau and Paul are merely taking a break from their relationship to focus on their own busy schedules — but whether or not she and her “bestie” remain apart is yet to be seen.


xQc unamused as hilarious Google search trolls him with Ninja’s picture

Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel got an unpleasant surprise when he decided to do some research on who the most-subscribed streamer on Twitch is, only to be trolled by Google with Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins’ photo.

xQc is one of Twitch’s most popular streamers on Twitch and, by our measure, he’s easily one of the most successful on the platform this year, raking in close to $2 million overall.

Subscribers obviously make up a big part of that total amount, so you’re bound to find Felix on top of any ‘most-subscribed’ list for Twitch. Because it’s the end of the year and lists for the top streamers of 2020 are coming out, his chat urged him to search for exactly that.

“Most subbed streamer? Who cares, subs are temporary, sub count can go up and down, it can go away,” xQc said in response. “It doesn’t define what you do or who you are. People who attach their personality, and their ego, and their confidence to some random digit number that goes up and down — because they need some random pixels to feel better.”


Success doesn’t come without its struggles as they say, and the former Overwatch League pro found that out first hand when he finally gave in and did the search for his chat.

Sure enough, his name popped right up at the top of the Google search results, but instead of a picture of himself, it was accompanied by a photo of Ninja, which is very ironic since that’s who Felix has been compared to over the years by his merciless audience.

After initially looking proud when his name popped up, he quickly was at a loss for words for how badly he had been trolled by the search engine.

With his chat predictably cracking up, xQc simply closed the window and went back to his Minecraft run, continuing his original train of thought after a bit of awkward silence.

“In my opinion, if most of the basis of your self-confidence is from things that are outer, not from within, then you have no medium, you’ll never know what’s happening,” he reflected, trying to forget about the unfortunate search results. “You’ll always be guided by what others think, and then what?”

Not surprisingly, Ninja didn’t crack our list of the top-earning Twitch streamers for 2020, considering he only recently returned to the platform after Microsoft shut Mixer down in June.

Blevins still made out just fine though, reportedly making between $30-50 million from his streaming deal with the site, and the newfound freedom to broadcast wherever he pleases, which led him to re-sign with Twitch.

Despite the hilarious comparisons that many have made of the two, xQc still has a ways to go if he plans on making the kind of money Ninja rakes in from streaming. Still, he is undoubtedly one of the most subbed-to streamers on Twitch, so you’d think Google would at least get his picture right.

Maybe next year Felix!
