Popular YouTuber Tana Mongeau “unofficially” tied the knot with social media star Jake Paul in late July - but she was unable to attend their European honeymoon, staying in Vegas due to a “family emergency.”
Mongeau announced this “emergency” in a series of Tweets on July 29 amidst the wedding chaos, hoping to meet up with Paul on their trip the moment she was able.
“My number one focus is dealing with this family emergency,” Mongeau wrote. “Sometimes God gives us hardships at really bad timing... trying to be strong to be the best example I can be for all of you.”

Although she didn’t speak at length about the emergency in question, Mongeau followed up with a somber update on August 16, announcing to fans that she was flying home to Vegas to spend time with her family.
“Headed to Vegas to be with my family,” the YouTuber Tweeted. “Remember to always tell the people you love that you love them, even if they make you mad. Even if it’s hard. Life should always be about forgiveness, because you never how long you’ll have with the people you love.”
