After a quick engagement, Youtubers Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul got married in a huge Las Vegas ceremony. Although later confirming their marriage was not legally binding, the two stayed in an ‘open marriage.’
That is until last night when the pair announced that they were taking a break after less then six months of marriage. In separate Instagram posts, the pair confirmed they still had feelings for one another, but needed to take a break.
Mongeau’s post of herself, Paul and their dog Thor was captioned, “Ok I don’t rly know how to do a ‘we’re taking a break’ post & this is weird as f—… I’m happy to still be able to sit with Jake and laugh as we do this—but for now we both are taking a break to focus on our own crazy lives. I’ll never know what the future holds and I will always love Jake and everything we did. I’m grateful to know throughout this I’ve made a best friend for life & found someone to do life with when no one understood me. Here’s to 2020, working on us, and my new Lamborghini since I get half of everything! No need for crazy speculations — this is coming from a place of nothing but love. I love u Jakey. thank u for the past year.”
Paul also wrote similar terms of endearment to Mongeau, and spoke about how they were still sitting side by side when they posted their breakup.
“As Tana and I sit next to each other writing captions about taking a break we’re literally laughing at how crazy and stupid the past couple months have been and cracking jokes at how silly this all seems. I’m keeping custody of Thor but Tana unfortunately gets my Lamborghini I wouldn’t change anything that happened.. we’re best friends and right now it’s best for us to focus on our lives & see what the future holds. (p.s our friends started playing sad music while we were writing these captions and we all started laughing our asses off.. this is bitter sweet but it’s what’s best for us right now) the last thing we wanna see is fan pages speculating “what happened” we truly just need a second to focus on our own lives and ourselves. luv u mongeau <3.”
Mongeau replied to Paul’s post, “ur still my bestie so that’s cool wanna get married.”
It’s no surprise that the pair are breaking up, as Mongeau said in her newest video she wasn’t happy in the relationship, “I’m so unhappy with the way my relationship with Jake looks in the public eye and I’ve done so much pretending that I don’t care what I do. So it’s my fault,” she said. “I loved Jake so much, I still do. But I did so much of being the cool girl and not caring because I wanted to do life with this person and I wanted to see them happy and thrive and I wanted to show them that there are people that will accept you for who you are.”
