The couple opened up about their relationship in early May, following mass speculation that the two were secretly dating.

However, they weren’t in the “dating” stage for long: Paul popped the question in a Vegas night club just one month later during Tana’s 21st birthday bash – a move that many critics felt was setting fans up for a massive prank.

Jake Paul, InstagramJake Paul took his fast-paced relationship with Mongeau to the next level, after proposing to her during her 21st birthday bash in a Vegas night club.

While the two eventually went through with their wedding in late July, commenters are convinced that the entire charade was merely a scam, thanks to a recent episode of Mongeau’s “Tana Turns 21” MTV special.

The episode, titled, “The Truth About Tana & Jake’s Marriage,” opens up with Mongeau explaining that “a little birdie” had told her that Paul planned to propose ahead of time – and that she hoped to plan a wedding shortly thereafter.

That’s not all: Tana later claimed that she wasn’t taking her wedding seriously, admitting that she and Jake were merely tying the knot for views.

“Don’t get me wrong, I think a wedding is a very serious thing, but at the same time, I think Jake and I don’t take things very seriously,” Tana said of the ceremony. “It’s still something fun and lighthearted that we’re obviously doing for fun and for content.”

Although fans are understandably outraged at Mongeau’s wedding stunt, she wouldn’t be the first YouTuber to fake a marriage for clout.

15-year-old YouTuber Danielle Cohn came under fire after faking both her marriage and a pregnancy in early April, claiming that she was inspired by popular Netflix series “13 Reasons Why” and wanted to “spread awareness to young girls.”
