Reports are in that Tana Mongeau and Bella Thorne are officially dating, but a lot of people are still raising their eyebrows over how much truth there is to this story.
To play devil’s advocate for just a second, we’re gonna talk about the fact that up until very recently (and even still happening now) a lot of people were speculating that the supposed budding romance between the two women was either a fleeting hookup, or a publicity stunt.
So let’s look at some notable details and facts that help support both the shippers and the skeptics.
About a year ago, Bella Thorne came out as bisexual on Twitter after a fan asked her about her sexuality in response to pictures of her kissing her older brother’s ex-girlfriend. As far as we publicly know, this is the only other woman who Bella has been linked to outside of Tana.
Tana herself has not yet been officially romantically linked to a woman outside of Bella, but hey, that’s not to say she herself isn’t bisexual or lesbian as well, although no official coming out has been announced from the YouTuber.
Social Media History:
Both women have been pretty wild when it comes to social media, so this is where some uncertainty and disbelief tends to come into play.
The argument is that Tana might be using this opportunity to get more views due to her lack of drama with other people lately, and that Bella is using it to break into the Influencer and social media scene even more than she already was doing.
Considering the length people will go to for views, it really isn’t that much of a stretch to think that they would fake a relationship, after all, let’s all remember Jerika.

After the initial picture of them locking lips at the Life Is Beautiful festival gained attention, a lot of people thought their hookup would be just that- a hookup. But after seeing the apparent consistency in their communication via social media and Instagram stories, people are now beginning to think that the whole thing really is developing into a more serious relationship.
I’m on the way see you soon baby https://t.co/vlnxZXUhYG
