The cursed nuptials of influencers Tana Mongeau, 21, and Jake Paul, 22, took place this weekend at Las Vegas' Sugar Factory. Whether or not it was a publicity stunt, it was, naturally, chaos. A fist fight broke out when a man threw a champagne flute at Jake's head as he was kissing the bride (it's speculated that this was also an inception-style publicity stunt), they referred to the reason for their gathering as "holy cloutrimony," and Jake, for no reason, shredded a large, ornate wedding cake with a sword.
Nonetheless, Tana was very pleased with how things went, calling it "an unconventional crazy girl's dream wedding," despite the champagne-throwing incident and saying "it honestly made it better.... to slow dance while they scream."
Of course, everyone knew it would be a shit-show (publicity stunt or not) which is probably tens of thousands of people people signed up to watch the wedding via livestream. TMZ reports that 66,000 fans paid between $50-75 of their very own dollars to stream Josh and Tana's chaos, via a live-streaming app called Halogen.
Now, they're demanding their money back because the live-stream was reportedly blurry, began late, and only lasted for ten minutes of the sugary mayhem. They probably had to watch this ET YouTube video of the champagne flute incident, like everyone else, instead of watching it in real time.
Luckily, although somewhat shockingly, it seems unhappy viewers are actually getting their refunds. According to TMZ, Apple and Google Play are paying back customers who purchased the Halogen App through their platforms, though it's unclear if Halogen is going to eat the costs, or just blame it on Jake and Tana.
A rep for Halogen told TMZ: "Many high-profile creators use Halogen to broadcast their live events. Sometimes onsite technical issues with third-party production providers used by creators can cause fans to experience issues while viewing streams."
At least someone (i.e. customers reunited with their unwisely spent cash) will get their happily ever after. Although Jake's brother Logan Paul speculated on camera at the wedding that he doesn't think Jana will last a month, Tana says they are happily en route to their honeymoon in Europe and.... already talking about having kids. Possibly for real this time? Surely not even they would pull a fake pregnancy stunt twice.
