Jake Paul & Tana Mongeau Say They're Engaged
YouTube sensations Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau are reportedly engaged.
At Mongeau’s 21st birthday bash Sunday night, Paul appears to have popped the question using a cake with the phrase “Will you marry me, Tana?” written on it. Mongeau flashed the huge ring on her Instagram story, with the caption “I’m engaged @jakepaul.”
There is much speculation over the validity of the engagement, however, since the influencers' relationship did not begin until the end of April.
Two days before Mongeau's first YouTube video with Paul was posted back in April, she uploaded a 20-minute video explaining that her ex, Justin Bieber look-alike Brad Sousa, had cheated on her. Paul is also fresh out of a relationship, having broken things off with Erika Costell in November, later revealing in an interview with The New York Times that their relationship was fake.
But Mongeau and Paul seem to be going strong. They post regular videos together as "Jana," including babysitting children and getting matching tattoos.
Mongeau took to Twitter to confirm the rumors, replying to a follower asking if it was a joke with “it’s not. i'm engaged. holy fuck.”

Besides YouTube, the couple also has music in common. Paul has released several rap tracks, including the infamous Billboard Hot 100 hit “It’s Everyday Bro,” and Mongeau’s newest pop-driven single “Facetime” (below) dropped on May 18.
Billboard reached out to a representative for Paul but did not receive confirmation of the engagement.
