Tana Mongeau Called Out The Teen Choice Awards And MTV After Jokes About Her "Pretend Marriage" To Jake Paul

    "Jake Paul over here would be pissed, and that could stress out his pretend marriage, leading to a fake divorce from his not-wife."

    Tana Mongeau isn't happy with the Teen Choice Awards after a joke was made on the show about her recent marriage to Jake Paul.

    It all started when Crazy Rich Asians actor Ken Jeong took to the stage to present Noah Centineo with an award.

    During his speech, Jeong cracked a joke about rumours that Mongeau and Paul's marriage hasn't been legalised, saying: "Jake Paul over here would be pissed, and that could stress out his pretend marriage, leading to a fake divorce from his not-wife."

    In case you don't know what Jeong's referring to, here's the brief rundown:

    • Mongeau and Paul had a wedding ceremony in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago, just months after they started dating.

    • However, the relationship had already been clouded with rumours that it was all for clout.

    • This wasn't helped by comments made by the couple, including what Mongeau said on her MTV show: "It's still something fun and lighthearted that we're obviously doing for fun and for content."

    • Then she appeared to confirm that the marriage wasn't actually legal after reports circulated that the couple hadn't obtained a marriage license before the nuptials.

    • In the same YouTube video, Mongeau added: "I really wouldn't want to do it on paper because I think that legally binding yourself to someone takes away the love."

    But it looks like Mongeau didn't exactly take too kindly to the joke about her relationship. Jumping on Twitter, the YouTuber turned on her caps lock and accused the show of being "rigged".

    NO WAY DID THE TEEN CHOICE AWARDS JUST SHADE JAKE AND I NO WAY!? FROM WANTING TO BE NOMINATED SO BAD TO FINDING OUT IT WAS RIGGED TO THIS. WOW. MY EVOLUTION. someone show me the clip omg

    There wasn't much time for Mongeau to be mad at the Teen Choice Awards, though, as she quickly turned her attention to MTV, the network that has been broadcasting her reality show, Tana Turns 21.

    Mongeau originally voiced her issue with the network after her "for fun and for content" comment began spreading across social media. In response, Mongeau explained that the quote had been taken from a "very long sentence" and had been edited by MTV for the show.

    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

    And on Monday, Mongeau agreed with a fan who called out MTV for discrediting her relationship with Paul.

    @wannabemongeau @jakepaul @MTV 100% agreed..

    In response to another fan, Mongeau said: "[The show] makes me heated too."

    @boujeebiebs it makes me heated too...:/
