It's been less than a week since Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul got married, but that hasn't stopped fans and fellow YouTubers alike from questioning their motivations for getting married. Now, new comments from Mongeau have continued to raise doubts about the validity of their wedding vows.
As any diehard fan knows, Mongeau is currently starring in an MTV YouTube show called Tana Turns 21, and in the latest episode, she confirms that she and Paul "aren't officially exclusive." Additionally, Mongeau seems to imply that she just got married "for the content."
"I think we're all trying to piece together the puzzles of what we actually want this engagement and 'marriage' to be," Mongeau said, later adding that while she believes "a wedding is a very serious thing," the couple don't "take things very seriously."
"I have a lot of love for him, but it's still something fun and light-hearted that we're obviously doing for fun and for content," Mongeau said. Elsewhere in the episode, Mongeau's inner circle appear to be in on the joke with her best friend saying, "If I thought Tana was actually going to legally marry Jake I would obviously be freaking out," and her manager saying that "they're not in love."
Naturally, the episode has led to a flurry of fans asking if the two actually got married for real — and apparently it's got to the point where Mongeau felt the need to respond.
"I filmed those confessionals for the show A LONG TIME AGO," Mongeau claimed. "The 'for fun and content' sound bite was from a very long sentence lmao and was a little salty to see it pulled out of context."
i understand ppls frustration with this sound bite from the show & it’s the last thing i wanna talk about right now but obviously i just uploaded an 8 minute youtube video on how much i love Jake & am not tryna look like that much of a sociopath hahahahahaha i filmed those https://t.co/DHi4icQLJD
confessionals for the show A LONG TIME AGO! the “for fun and content” sound bite was from a very long sentence lmao and was a little salty to see it pulled out of context.. i understand though that MTV has their own creative & that these episodes are airing very late, especially
Mongeau then continued by writing that MTV has its own creative and the episodes are "airing very late." Not only that, but she also said that things have changed drastically since she filmed the confessionals.
"i'm not trippin. i know that things have moved so fast, are unconventional, and confusing, but i love jake. i truly do...." she wrote, later adding, "i hate that it'll probably always come with owing people some explanation especially with so many things coming out like the show (which is quite behind)... but i know that's kinda the life we signed up for."
in timing with the wedding. i’m not trippin. i know that things have moved so fast, are unconventional, and confusing but i love jake. i truly do, in the weirdest fucking way. every second of this rollercoaster ride has been so fun & crazy. i hate that it’ll probably always come
That said, InTouchreports that Mongeau and Paul didn't actually obtain a marriage certificate ahead of their wedding and the Team 10 member who officiated the ceremony wasn't licensed to wed the couple. Take that as you will.
