Welp, it really happened, folks: that cooked YouTuber couple Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau officially tied the knot over the weekend but they’ve done little to convince us that this union is nothing more than one big prank.
The couple, who got engaged in Vegas on Mongeau’s 21st birthday after two months of dating, had their mate Arman Izadi become ordained three days before the ceremony so that he could marry them.
Just to prove that he’s qualified for the job, he shared his minister certificate on Twitter and wrote, “And they think it’s not going to be a real wedding.”
The image very much looks like a template from Google and the fact that he posted it just to prove that it’s for real has me questioning the legitimacy of the whole thing. As does what went down at the actual ceremony.

The pair selected Las Vegas’ Grafitti Mansion as the location for the ceremony where they invited an invariable who’s who of the U.S. social media star scene.
“I don’t think it’s going to be a regular wedding,” Jake’s brother, Logan Paul, said before the ceremony.
The whole thing was live-streamed (of course) to thousands of fans online, capturing every gruesome detail including an alleged brawl that broke out.
Just as the happy couple went in for their first kiss as husband and wife, a guest popped champagne onto them which seemingly angered Paul and their officiant, Izadi.
“What the fuck bro,” Paul could be heard saying in the video, pushing the unidentified champagne-popper away. Izadi then joined in and an all-out brawl ensued.
“A dude came up and threw champagne on Tana and Jake and Jake pushed him and our priest Armani, I don’t know how else to say this, he beat the shit out of him,” Logan said, adding that he didn’t know who the champagne-thrower was. “He was smiling all menacingly.”
Security rushed in to break up the fight, which lasted for a few minutes before the couple was able to return to their nuptials and share their first kiss as husband and wife.
