Tana had gone home to Vegas for a "family emergency".

Tana Mongeau has been a little quieter than expected since her wedding to Jake Paul last month.

While Jake is currently on a ‘solo honeymoon’ in Europe, Tana is in Las Vegas dealing with a family emergency and she’s just shared some sad news of the reason behind having to return to her hometown.

“Idk really how to write this and I know I don’t owe anyone an explanation about anything in my life but I guess I’ll always feel like I owe you guys an update as to what’s going on in my life because you are my family just as my as my family is my family,” Tana wrote in an Instagram story.

“Before I was supposed to leave on the honeymoon with Jake something terrible and unexpected happened randomly with one of my family members. It hit me very hard and I didn’t know how to handle it. Luckily I was already in Vegas and spend the next few weeks staying there and going back and forth,” she continued.

“Yesterday I was flying back to Vegas to deal with the same emergency - and my grandma, who lived with my mom and dad, ended up having a random heart attack and passing away. This was so unexpected on top of everything my entire family has been going through. My heart truly breaks for my mom.”

There had previously been some confusion as to why Tana hadn’t joined Jake on their honeymoon and Tana had been alluding to a family emergency in a series of tweets.

Last week she wrote: “Headed to Vegas to be with my family. Remember to always tell the people you love that you love them even if they make you mad. Even if it’s hard. Life should always be about forgiveness because you never how long you’ll have with the people you love.”

“Still trying to get a video out for all of you asap though. You are my family as well and if I can make you smile when I can’t smile that is serving my purpose on this planet. Love u”

Our condolences go out to Tana and her family during this difficult time.
