Popular YouTuber Jake Webber started out on Vine before jumping to Kian and JC's Big Brother-style YouTube series in 2019. Now the creator has more than two million followers across his platforms and makes music on the side.

Who is Jake Webber dating?

Currently, Jake has not publicly posted with anyone new since his split from longtime girlfriend Tara (@tarayummyy) in mid-2023, but some rumors online suggest he's currently dating a model named Kenzie (@kenzieeluby). Viewers noticed that in Jake's mukbang with Trisha Paytas she talked about someone Jake had been seeing, though no names were mentioned.

At this time, this is just a rumor about who Jake is dating, and it's possible he's still single. That said, many of his followers haven't quite let go of his relationship with his ex.

Why did Jake Webber and TaraYummy break up?

Jake and Tara dated for almost five years before announcing their split in August 2023 — and though most influencer breakups are at least a little bit messy, the pair handled it with grace.

To tell their followers that they were officially parting ways (romantically, at least), they uploaded a YouTube video to Jake's channel, titled "Jake and Tara: Break Up."

In the 16-minute long video, they sit down with some pizza and talk about their decision to part ways, and though we're only outsiders here, it seems they handled the breakup incredibly maturely.

"Breaking up is sad but we had to do it. it was what was best for both of us, and we thought what's a better way to break up than to eat pizza?" Jake says in the opening of the video, pulling out some pizza for the mukbang-style video.

The duo initially met when Tara was 18 and Jake was 20, and though five years has passed, they both agreed that they're in "the most important time of our lives."

"Basically from the beginning, me and Tara always told each other 'We're not Jake and Tara. We're Jake, Tara, and Jake and Tara,'" Jake said. "We're always going to be individuals, because I think that's important... it's special to be your own person as well. We're both really young and we haven't experienced our adult lives."

Though they've parted ways romantically, it's clear they've remained important parts of each others lives. In January, Jake posted another video to his YouTube titled "Taking my Ex on a Shopping Spree," proudly showing off Tara in the thumbnail. Jake and Tara have remained on good terms, it seems, since the split. Whether or not they'll ever get back together, though, remains to be seen.
