Controversial social media stars Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau outraged the internet after charging viewers to watch their hyped-up wedding on July 28 – but their pay-per-view plan isn’t the only thing fans are upset about. 

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.”

After months of doubt and speculation, it looks like the truth has finally come to light: Tana and Jake’s wedding was definitely staged, and fans aren’t happy about it – but it doesn’t look like the outrage is stopping this YouTube couple anytime soon.

“Hey Jake seriously were you even trying against Ben [Darmstadt]? That was pathetic. Hope you try a little bit harder in our fight,” the former UFC fighter opened with in the exchange.

“Hiya bubba! So good to hear from you! I know Masvidal gave you brain damage so I’m guessing you meant to ask if I was even trying against Nate,” Paul replied.

“We’re going to get you through this fight nice and fast so you can retire after.”

Askren clarified that he was talking about Ben Darmstadt, before Jake Paul went on a tangent, asking his opponents if he’s ever taken drugs, saying he needs “help taking his edge off.”
