Popular YouTuber Tana Mongeau has revealed that her long-standing dispute with VidCon is over, as she will be attending the London version of the event in late February.

Back in 2017, Mongeau attended VidCon after being invited, but wasn’t listed as one of their “featured creators” – something she claimed prevented her from entering exclusive areas and didn’t have security around her as she traveled across the event floor.

In response, Tana launched TanaCon in 2018, and ran her event on the same weekend as VidCon. However, it never exactly went as planned, as 15,000 unregistered fans turned up, ultimately shutting down the convention.

Tana Mongeau turned her YouTube success into an MTV show.

 

However, fans received some surprising news on January 21 as the official VidCon Twitter account tweeted that Tana would be hosting a meet-and-greet at the upcoming VidCon London event. 

“Wait so yeah!!! VidCon London,” the YouTuber Tweeted. “I found out I could actually attend less than 12 hours ago and am definitely in shock… Something I never thought I’d be able to do in America let alone London. Thank you guys for another mind-blowing opportunity like this and welcoming my growth.”

The former Mrs. Jake Paul followed it up with a second tweet, gushing about her excitement of traveling to the UK and meeting fans from overseas.

“Can’t wait to hug all of you in London, and celebrate some really special stuff with you,” she continued. “Thank you VidCon for not only welcoming me back once but twice.”

Even though VidCon London doesn’t kick off until February 20, Tana’s inclusion means she joins a stacked cast of creators heading to the event that’s being held at the ExCeL Centre. 

Fellow YouTube stars like Ali-A and Jacksepticeye will also be in attendance, but there is still plenty of time for others to be announced – though, not many of them will have had such a fraught history with the event as Mongeau.

A number of TikTok stars have hit out at paparazzi, asking them to stop “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson after a video of them at the airport was uploaded to YouTube. 

With the success of TikTok around the globe, a number of creators like Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, Addison Rae, and Bryce Hall have become stars thanks to their viral videos. 

However, the fame and popularity that social media brings, fans want to know more. They’re desperate for updates on relationships, where their favorite stars are living, and how they’re getting on away from the TikTok videos. 

Many of TikTok’s stars will conduct interviews with paparazzi and other media outlets on a regular basis, but one has come under fire from TikTokjers for apparently “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s biggest star, and garners the most attention.

Kevin Wong posted a video of Charli and Chase reuniting at LAX. However, it didn’t go down well with some of the pair’s fellow TikTok stars. 

“You’re taking stalking to a new level. Give them some privacy,” Hype House founder Thomas Petrou said. He also added a simple message, asking Wong to stop as well. 

Additionally, Mia Haywood and Bryant Eslava posted similar messages as Petrou. “Did you really follow them to the airport? Chill with that,” said Mia. “Damn, this is too far Kevin,” added Bryant.

Wong responded with a comment of his own, claiming that he was already at the airport waiting for somebody else, and hadn’t actually followed the D’Amelio’s anywhere. 

“I was already at LAX waiting for someone to show up, then I saw a big white Rolls Royce drive around and saw Mr D’Amelio & Charli,” he said. 

Neither of Charli or Chase have responded to the drama themselves, and it might just be a case of others fighting the battle for them. 

We’ll just have to wait and see if any similar responses come up in the future, or if the pair decide to respond themselves.
