YouTubers Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau are engaged?!
What better way to celebrate your 21st birthday than by getting engaged?
This week, American personality Tana Mongeau celebrated her birthday and surprise engagement in her home town of Las Vegas.
Jake and Tana first started dating in April after she ended her relationship with Brad Sousa, and barely two months later, they’re on the road to tying the knot.
i’m....... engaged..................— Tana Mongeau (@tanamongeau) June 24, 2019
i proposed— END CYBER BULLYING 2019 (@jakepaul) June 24, 2019
Tana (@tanamongeau) is best known for her ‘Storytime’ videos on YouTube but has since become a famous vlogger, entrepreneur and rapper. She is also known for dating Bella Thorne (@bellathorne) for almost two years.
Ex-Disney star Jake Paul (@jakepaul) became a prominent personality through creating content on Vine (remember Vine?) and has sparked controversy after controversy since becoming a major YouTuber.
In the early hours of the 24th, Jake brought out a cake during her party with the words “Will you marry me, Tana?” on it and Tana accepted. She even posted her ring on her Instagram Story the same night. That’s a pretty hefty rock.
Did we mention Jake Paul threw in a Mercedes-Benz as an engagement gift?
The 21-year-olds’ engagement came as a shock to fans and has left some of us wondering, is this all a publicity stunt?
Apparently this had been made public to brands months before the events even took place.
Marissa avidly documented every moment of these five days on her Instagram and during this period alone her follower count increased by 40, 000.
This got people questioning if the whole thing was a massive marketing move and concluded that from the level of detail in the whole project, there must have been some input from the allegedly oblivious bride-to-be.
We can’t help but wonder if this influencer trick is being played by Jake and Tana right now in a grab for publicity. As a couple, the two will have a strong joint influence not to mention will grow their own individual followings.
Is this a case of true love or fake news?
