The Truth About Bella Thorne And Tana Mongeau's Relationship

Since parting ways with Disney, actress Bella Thorne has proven she's not shy when it comes to stirring (or should we say, shaking) up a little bit of controversy. In fact, she's become an outspoken voice in an industry that seeks to define women and dictate their sexuality. From her unconventional relationships to her career to her 2020 foray into the NSFW world of OnlyFans, Bella has ruffled plenty of feathers. All that being said, it's the details of her sexuality that continue to dominate headlines.

In 2016, the actress came out as bisexual around the time she was linked to her brother Remy Thorne's ex, Bella Pendergast. After a fan asked on Twitter whether she was bisexual, the Disney alum's nonchalant "Yes" sent tabloids into a frenzy. However, all of that preceded her most talked-about relationship to date. In 2017, Bella made waves when she entered into a relationship with YouTube star Tana Mongeau. The vlogger behind the disastrous "TanaCon" and one-half of the short-lived "Jana" relationship, Tana is just as controversial as Bella — if not more so! While the pair broke up in 2019, the internet continues to question what really happened behind closed doors. 

With that in mind, here's the truth about Bella Thorne and Tana Mongeau's relationship.

It was Tana Mongeau's dream to date Bella Thorne

In September 2017, Bella Thorne and Tana Mongeau confirmed their relationship on social media with sweet selfies. Mongeau appeared to be over the moon, revealing that it had long been her dream to date Thorne. "mineeee," the YouTuber captioned her shot, which featured Thorne in a bright ski cap kissing and touching her face. Likewise, Thorne's post showed Mongeau with her hand wrapped around Thorne's neck as she knelt below her. "When you find a girl who knows what you like," Thorne wrote, hinting at the nature of their relationship. 

From there on out, the two weren't shy about packing on the PDA. When Thorne turned 20 that year, Mongeau was on hand to help the Disney alum celebrate. And for them that meant ... tongue wrestling? "ur weird i'm weird i like u," Mongeau captioned a video that divided the Internet. She followed it up with more snaps from Thorne's birthday bash that showed the couple cuddling up together on a carpeted floor. "what do u do after the longest birthday night ever? lay on the floor of a restaurant," Mongeau shared. "happy birthday Annabella, I f**king adore you... see u in like an hour lmao."

Bella Thorne was in a 'throuple' with Mod Sun and Tana Mongeau

In October 2017, Bella Thorne confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that she and Tana Mongeau were in a "throuple," or three-way relationship after welcoming another into their unique fold: musician Mod Sun. Per Los Angeles Times, the heavily tattooed "hippy hop" star, who was known to serenade Thorne's private parts during his concerts, brought out even more of her wild-child side. Described by Thorne as "adventurous," Mod Sun encouraged her to pursue music, championing her talents as she released sexually explicit singles like "B**H, I'M BELLA THORNE" and "Pussy Mine," according to Los Angeles Times. 

However, Thorne made it clear that she wasn't interested in defining her open relationship with Mod Sun and Mongeau. In an interview with Gay Times for the February 2019 issue, Thorne told the outlet that she felt no one would ever truly understand the bond she shared with both her significant others. "Yeah, we joke around about poly, but we aren't in the sense that we don't put a word, a box or label too many things. It is what it is," the actress-singer explained (via People).

Bella Thorne and Tana Mongeau called it quits

In September 2018, Tana Mongeau shouted out Bella Thorne with a heartfelt tribute in honor of their one-year anniversary together. "You are the most perfect, incredible, talented, confident, resilient, STRONG, SELFLESS individual I've ever met and every second I spend with you I'm inspired and grateful," Mongeau wrote. "Here's to a year with the girl that made me realize that for me, love has no gender or boundaries."

Despite the sweet sentiment, the pair's love wasn't meant to last. In February 2019, Thorne and Mongeau amicably parted ways after a little over a year together. Thorne was the first to confirm the split by tweeting the news to her followers, and Mongeau followed up shortly with more context about the breakup, adding that there was "no negativity at all." A glance at both stars' Instagram accounts revealed that the last time they'd uploaded a picture together was in October 2018, when Mongeau posted of her, Thorne and Mod Sun in coordinated Halloween costumes. Two months later, Thorne and Mod Sun also split. RIP, throuple.

Bella Thorne cried on social media over news of Tana Mongeau's engagement

After splitting with Bella Thorne, Tana Mongeau rebounded at lightning fast speed with fellow YouTuber Jake Paul. In April 2019 (a mere month after her breakup with Thorne), Mongeau posted a video with her "friend" Jake, though the pair confused viewers by flirting throughout and referring to each as "babe." On the same day, Jake shared a video titled, "meet the girl I've been hiding from you," where he and Mongeau kissed at the end. So, were they or weren't they together? Even Tana openly admitted they should get together "just for the clout" (per Insider).

After two months of maybe-dating, Jake proposed to Mongeau during her lavish 21st birthday party in Las Vegas. While fans were left reeling, no one was more shaken than Thorne. The star stirred up further drama by posting a photo of herself crying with the caption, "when ur ex gets engaged," and hit up Twitter to throw shade at Jake. Mongeau's only response was to comment an "omg," on the post, leaving us with more questions than answers. 

As of the time of this writing, Thorne has moved on with musician Benjamin Mascolo, while Mongeau married and separated from Jake, and has since been linked to Miley Cyrus's younger sister, Noah. Thorne and Mongeau still appear to have love for each other, but no one knows for sure. It's been a real rollercoaster, to say the least!
