Since Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau are two of the most popular YouTubers ever, the internet pretty much lost it after rumors hit the web that they were a couple. Well guys, the vloggers have addressed what’s going on between them once and for all, and we’re honestly shook over it. So let’s break it all down — shall we?
How did the Jana rumors start?
So it all started when the blonde beauty posted a selfie and some eagle eyed fans noticed that she was laying in Jake’s bed in it. We mean, nothing gets by you guys, right?
Not to mention that the mysterious snap came just days after Tana revealed that she and her boyfriend (err, ex-boyfriend) Brad Sousa had broken up because he had cheated on her. So naturally, everyone quickly started to assume something was going on between the two social media stars.
Are Jake and Tana actually dating?
Well, it’s honestly pretty complicated. On April 30, days after Tana posted the mysterious selfie, both Jake and Tana uploaded new YouTube videos, telling their sides of the story. And boy, were they intense. Throughout Jake’s “Meet the Girl I’ve Been Hiding From You” video and Tana’s “Mukbang In Bed With My Rebound Jake Paul” video, the two joked about being a couple a lot. It even appeared that they shared in a steamy kiss at one point! Unfortunately, right as their lips were about to touch, the camera went black — ugh, they love to torture us don’t they — but we did hear the sound of them smooching.
OK, so what is going on between them, you ask? After watching both videos we were even more confused about their relationship status than we were before, TBH. However, when Jake uploaded another new video called “Our New Paul Family YouTube Channel!” on May 9, he explained a little further.
“This whole thing with Tana is like escalating. I don’t even know how to describe it. It’s real, but it’s also not. But it also is, so it’s weird, man. I don’t know what it’s going to turn into. Stay tuned,” he said.
Wow, that’s not very helpful is it? But we’ll take it. And in another video posted on May 16 called “My Mom Walked In On Us Hooking Up,” the social media star spilled some more tea on the mysteriously relationship. Get this, you guys — in the video, Jake referred to Tana as his “girlfriend-thing/internet girlfriend/real girlfriend.” And after spending a full day with the rumored couple, Jake asked his mom, Pam, to weigh in on their relationship.
“There’s definitely some crushing going on, like real, like not just for the camera,” she said. “There’s some crushing, that’s a fact.”
UGH, WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN? Honestly, we all know that they both love to do crazy things for some views, so hey, we wouldn’t be surprised if they’re playing up their relationship for clout, TBH. Also, let us not forget the time that Jake pretended to date Erika Costell (the two even had a fake wedding!) for his vlog. Although in the case of #Jerika, the two did end up falling for each other IRL eventually, so maybe that’s what’ll happen with #Jana!
Did Jake and Tana really kiss?
They sure have! Although the camera went black before we got to witness a #Jana kiss in their first video together, the pair have smooched on camera a bunch since then. Plus, Tana even took to Instagram to show off an adorable snap of the two smooching.
But still, whether or not their relationship is real is still unfortunately unclear.
Are Jake Paul and Brad Sousa fighting?
Things got even more complicated on May 11, when Jake posted a YouTube video titled, “Tana’s Ex-Boyfriend Wants To Fight Me.” In the video, he said, “Guys, if you don’t know, [Tana’s] ex-boyfriend cheated on her. We don’t like cheaters… but he posted on his [Instagram] Stories making fun of me and saying he wanted to fight me… Brad, I couldn’t be more down. I would love to fight you. I think once this video’s posted, I’m going to DM you and ask you like how you want to settle this.”
Jake then took to Instagram to share some DMs that he and Brad exchanged.
The drama just never ends, does it? If one thing is for sure, it’s that the #Jana saga is definitely a super confusing one.
