Don’t let anyone tell you MomTok is boring. Last week, the mormon mommy influencers of Utah saw their friend group (and at least one marriage) implode. Thankfully, numerous TikTokers were on hand to break down the juicy drama.

At the center of the drama is Taylor Frankie Paul and her husband Tate. Paul’s TikTok has 3.5 million followers who watch videos of herding a variety of dance challenges, or her daughter putting on make-up. She also made a lot of content with a small group of moms from her Utah neighborhood who claimed to have made a new “Utah Content House” together.

The drama kicked off when Paul announced that she and her husband were separating. In one video, she claimed that her “life was falling apart.” Another showed her packing boxes and expressing excitement about co-parenting with Tate.

Her soon-to-be-ex-husband seemed less excited: he removed all evidence of Taylor off his Instagram. Around the same time, multiple other moms from their tight-knit content-creation crew unfollowed the influencer and even allegedly liked comments that hinted at her cheating on Tate.

This was all very basic “two influencers break up a content house” drama until Paul took to TikTok Live to explain what happened. She claimed that most of the couples in the group were “soft swingers,” meaning that they get drunk and partner swap without going all the way (unless both spouses are also in the room). The reason for her divorce was that she had broken that rule with one of the husbands in the group.

Some followers have cast doubt on the story. Many believe that the Paul family’s entire life is scripted and pointed to past instances of her making up stories for clout, like when she posted a clearly joking video claiming that she was 50 and that two of the other MomTokers in her crew were her 25-year-old twin daughters (Paul is in her late twenties).
