Perhaps Jake Paul’s most famous relationship was with fellow YouTube sensation/ wild child Tana Mongeau. And true to Paul’s style, the whole thing basically played out online, with the couple even releasing “Jana” merchandise, (yes, another couple nickname), soon after announcing their relationship in April 2019, according to People. Paul proposed to Mongeau one month later at Mongeau’s 21st Birthday Party. However, like Paul’s past relationships, fans questioned the validity of their romance since “Jana” themselves at times even hinted it was all for clout. Paul even said in a video, “This whole thing with Tana is like escalating … It’s real, but it’s also not. But it also is, so it’s weird, man.”
Yet, the two went through with their wedding in July 2019, potentially since they were filming the whole thing for MTV and live-streaming it on Halogen for a price. The couple never made their marriage legal. Mongeau admitted in a video, “I really wouldn’t want to do it on paper, because I think that legally binding yourself to someone takes away the love.”
Sadly, their decision to have an “open relationship” eventually became too much for Mongeau. She explained in another video, “I think I just put so much of myself into Jake that I lost myself,” adding, “the second Jake and I got married, everything changed.” The couple soon after announced they were taking a break but it appeared to be more permanent than just some time apart.
