YouTuber Tana Mongeau recently revealed that she’s been having a “very difficult” time being single after her split with husband Jake Paul. During an interview with Metro U.K. the 21-year-old opened up about life after Jake and said that things haven’t been easy.

“I think I’m very focused on our friendship right now, and on myself and loving myself, and I’ll see where that road takes me,” Tana admitted. “[Single life’s] definitely been very difficult and it probably will be for a while, but I think that’s what my online journey is, it’s documenting that, even if it isn’t pretty.”

The blonde beauty even touched on the real reason behind her breakup with the YouTube star.

“I think we got to the point where we lost sight of our friendship, and we weren’t seeing eye to eye in the way that we used to,” she said.

For those who missed it, on January 2, 2020 the couple announced that they were taking a break from their whirlwind relationship. Both Tana and Jake took to Instagram and posted matching photos along with heartfelt captions that said they both needed time to focus on their own lives.

“OK, I don’t really know how to do a ‘we’re taking a break’ post and this is weird as f**k… I’m happy to still be able to sit with Jake and laugh as we do this — but for right now we both are taking a break to focus on our own very crazy lives,” Tana wrote on Instagram at the time.

As for what the future holds in terms of the two YouTube stars and their relationship, Tana admitted in the interview that her and Jake are currently taking things “day by day.”

“We both stepped back to really focus on our friendship, and I think that’s what we’ll focus on right now, building the foundation of that friendship,” Tana told the U.K.-based newspaper. “I have no idea where it’s going to go, I can’t say that I ever know what the future holds, I’ll always have a crazy love for Jake that I don’t really share for anyone else because I shared such a time in my life that I’ll never experience again.”
