Are Tana Mongeau And Noah Cyrus Dating? New Details On Why She Called Noah Her Girlfriend Despite Being Married To Jake Paul
Entertainment And News

Are Tana Mongeau and Noah Cyrus dating? That's the question that has been on everybody's mind since the social media superstar announced that Miley Cyrus's sister was her "girlfriend." Almost immediately, the statement sprung a firestorm of comments on social media and the blog-osphere — but what did she really mean? Are they dating, and does she have an open relationship with Jake Paul? (Welcome to the 21st century, kids!)

It's really unclear what Tana Mongeau, in particular, is known for — but the best way to describe her is an "Internet personality." (We suppose there are worse things to be known for.) Her storytime videos and comedy skits are what probably get her the most attention, but she also has a bit of a burgeoning musical career as well. Perhaps it's this burgeoning musical career that caused her to connect with Noah Cyrus, who — outside of her famous sister — is known for attempting to have a musical career, as well. 

So how did they bond? How did they meet? And what does Noah Cyrus have to say about all of this? 

Let's look at what we know about this new, modern couple. (Sort of couple? Possible couple? Rumored couple? Who knows — we're old.) 

1. It started in a YouTube video

Tana Mongeau took to her YouTube channel to announce that Noah Cyrus was her girlfriend on Tuesday, December 3. She uploaded a video titled "I took my girlfriend's phone and flirted with my best friend. Prank?" The girlfriend in question, of course, was Noah Cyrus. Aw! (You can see the video above.) 

2. Tana Mongeau and Noah Cyrus bonded over a shared ex

Some people get petty and vicious when they meet the girlfriend of their ex-boyfriend, but that wasn't the case with Noah Cyrus and Tana Mongeau. The duo actually bonded because they both dated Lil Xan, and they subsequently raised their standards. (We should all be so grateful!) For what it's worth, Lil Xan is going to be a father now, so he's off the market (try not to cry, ladies), but even though No-Xan and Tan-Xan are no more, Noah and Tana are still good friends. (And maybe more?)

3. Tana Mongeau isn't shy about being part of a "throuple"

So apparently there's a new term for people in an open relationship: throuple. (If you're from Generation X or the Baby Boomer generation, you might want to learn this.) The term is a portmanteau of the words three and couple and refers to people who have more than one partner in a relationship. In any regard, Tana Mongeau was once involved in a relationship with actress Bella Thorne and musician Mod Sun as part of a "throuple," but needless to say, that went the way of the dodo. (And how. Whoo. Chile. The ghetto!)

4. Technically, Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul aren't legally married. 

Le sigh. The things folks do for attention. Despite the fact that Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul got "married" in a lavish ceremony that detailed their "love" for one another in excruciating detail, they never filed the requisite paperwork to make their marriage official. This, of course, leaves people to wonder if, in fact, their relationship is all a publicity stunt

5. Noah Cyrus has never spoken about her sexuality

While her sister, Miley, has been open about being bisexual, Noah Cyrus has never directly addressed her sexuality. Many people have assumed that she was heterosexual because she dated Lil Xan, but she never outright stated her preferred sexuality. 

6. Noah Cyrus refuted Tana Mongeau's claims

Just one day after Tana Mongeau claimed that Noah Cyrus was her girlfriend, Noah Cyrus took to her Instagram stories to confirm that she and Tana Mongeau were "just friends." It also bears stating that Tana Mongeau also admitted that her "marriage" to Jake Paul was for "fun and content," so it's safe to say our girl just likes attention. 

Alright then.
