YouTuber Tana Mongeau is set to host the official Jake Paul vs AnEsonGib boxing match press conference, despite confirming that she and Paul were “taking a break” from their marriage.

Jake Paul and Brit AnEsonGib are set to face off in their highly anticipated fight on January 30 in Miami, Florida, with months of verbal jabs and arguments coming to a head when they finally step inside the squared circle to find out who the better boxer truly is.

The pair will come face-to-face on January 8 though, as they appear at a live press conference to hype the fight, and likely trade barbs as they attempt to get the mental advantage over their opponent. While few details are known about the presser, Jake Paul has confirmed that his wife Tana Mongeau will be hosting the event in Los Angeles, despite them revealing that they were taking a break from their marriage.

Mongeau and Paul were involved in a whirlwind romance throughout 2019, culminating in a wedding in July that many still believe wasn’t real. Since then, the 21-year-old has expressed her unhappiness at the way her relationship was portrayed in the media, and admitted that she had put on a brave face to hide her true emotions.

With the pair deciding to take a break to focus on their “own crazy lives,” many will be surprised to hear that the pair will be reuniting almost immediately after their announcement, with the MTV star set to act as the host and MC of her husband’s press conference against his rival.

Paul confirmed the news on his Instagram story, stating that Mongeau would be hosting the event, while also stating that no fans would be able to attend the conference, with members of the press set to be the only people admitted.

Paul has been locked away over the festive season in his training camp as he prepares for his first professional fight. Paul beat Deji Olatunji in the undercard in Manchester as his brother fought to a majority draw against JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji, while AnEsonGib currently sits 2-0 in amateur boxing. On January 30, both men will fight without headgear for the first time, adding another intriguing element to the bout.

The official Jake Paul vs AnEsonGib press conference takes place on January 8 from Los Angeles, California, with fans able to watch the event from 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM GT on Paul’s official YouTube channel and the DAZN website.

Former Vine star Patrick Perkins has cleared up a myth about an iconic meme years after it first took the internet by storm.

While Vine shuffled its mortal coil in 2016, many of its biggest stars have carried on with short-form comedy on YouTube and now TikTok, including Lele Pons, Liza Koshy, and David Dobrik.

Even now, these short clip compilations still get millions of views on YouTube, and there are still multiple Instagram and Twitter accounts dedicated to them. Several vines have carried on their internet life as memes or gifs and have even been pasted onto merchandise.

The vine in question shows a blonde teenager in glasses blowing a smoke circle using a vape on a desk when the person carrying the camera blows it away. The teen turns to the camera and exasperatedly says “Adam!.”

Adam and Patrick starred in several iconic vines.

Now the star himself has come onto TikTok to confirm some lore surrounding him and his twin brother, which has baffled thousands who never knew the truth.

Another iconic and highly quotable vine involving one of the twins shows them walking into his bathroom in just a pair of boxers saying: “Hi, welcome to chillis.” In another, one of the twins begs viewers to stop comparing him to Chicken Little.

To most people, they look like the exact same person.

However, Patrick has explained in a viral TikTok that they’re actually identical twins. Patrick was the star of the vape video, while the other twin is Adam and the star of the Chilli’s vine. He also showed a picture of them together “since a lot of people don’t believe that there are actually two of us.”

Patrick also posted the video to Twitter and users were bowled over by the new information. One person wrote, “I feel like a different person for knowing this,” while another added, “world-shattering revelations are sometimes just small clarifications I guess.”

In less than 24 hours, Patrick’s tweet has amassed 4,000 likes and continues to grow, bringing back a sense of nostalgia for many and clearing up a long-standing internet myth.
