    Tana Mongeau's Reality Show Just Revealed Some Very Interesting Things About Her Marriage To Jake Paul

    "I have a lot of love for him, but it's still something fun and lighthearted that we're obviously doing for fun and for content."

    If you've been on the internet at all in the last week, I'm sure you're probably aware that YouTubers Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau just got married.

    You'd probably assume the process of getting married is a pretty no-nonsense thing. But in this case, it's a whole lot more complicated than that.

    Then — less than two months later — the couple got engaged while celebrating Mongeau's 21st birthday in Las Vegas.

    But despite Mongeau's insistence that their engagement was real, people still questioned whether the whole thing had been orchestrated as a joke or for views.

    it’s not. i’m engaged. holy fuck. https://t.co/dNIvGfOch1

    And on Sunday, they actually did the thing and got married in a Las Vegas ceremony, which you could stream live on Halogen TV for the low price of $50.

    It's since been reported that some fans have been refunded the money because of the low quality of the livestream.

    If you thought the story would end with Paul and Mongeau riding off into the sunset, happily married, you would be wrong. Because now there's a whole new batch of Jana-related drama to get invested in!

    On Monday, MTV premiered the latest episode of Tana Turns 21, its reality show dedicated to documenting the road to Mongeau's big 21st birthday party in Vegas.

    At the beginning of the episode, Mongeau tells her friends she's "heard" that Paul is planning to propose to her at the party.

    Throughout the episode, both Mongeau's best friend, Ashly, and her manager, Jordan, say they assumed her marriage to Paul would be fake. They also reveal the wedding was planned and cancelled twice before the ceremony eventually took place.

    The show sees Mongeau and Paul meet up to discuss the wedding, which he and his team want to postpone for another month. Eventually Mongeau agrees that they should push it back in order to "slay a full-blown celebrity wedding".

    She also asks Paul if the wedding will be 100% legal, to which he responds: "I don't know if we should talk about that, though. Because we should make it seem like it is."

    And the episode ends with Mongeau saying this:

    Everyone wants to know if Jana is real and what this is, and so we've just been kind of playing it up for the fucking people because at the end of the day, we are internet trolls, but at the same time, I'm starting to realise that this could potentially be very real.

    But there's another moment in particular that people are picking up on, and it seems to confirm everyone's suspicions about their relationship and the marriage.

    During a confessional interview, Mongeau says: "Don't get me wrong — I think a wedding is a very serious thing, but at the same time, Jake and I don't take things very seriously. I have a lot of love for him, but it's still something fun and lighthearted that we're obviously doing for fun and for content."

    While all this was happening, reports began to emerge claiming that Mongeau and Paul never obtained a marriage license in the state of Nevada, and therefore couldn't be legally married.

    Now Mongeau has hit back at fans who continue to question the relationship, tweeting that she understands where the "frustration" is coming from, but insisting that she truly loves Paul.

    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

    She also said the "fun and content" quote had come from a long sentence and she was "a little salty" that it had been taken out of context.

    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

    "i know that things have moved so fast, are unconventional, and confusing but i love jake," she wrote. "i truly do, in the weirdest fucking way."

    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

    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. idk. i’ll fuck off.

    So, as Oprah would say, what is the truth? I still don't know, TBH. But you can watch the full episode of Tana Turns 21 here:
