A #MomTok star embroiled in the ‘soft swinging’ scandal ignited by Taylor Frankie Paul amid her divorce has hit back following rumors that her husband was involved with the influencer.
Taylor, 28, blew up #MomTok — a group of TikTok content creators who are mostly Mormon — after alleging that she and her husband, Tate Paul, were divorcing after she crossed the line while swapping partners with friends in their Utah community.
Former Bachelor star Nick Viall dished about the drama on his podcast The Viall Files, saying he had called Taylor, who told him that two other coupes were involved but only one of them are influencers.
During the episode, he and his co-hosts discussed online rumors that Taylor went ‘all the way’ with Victoria Zalic’s husband, Selver, while Victoria had hooked up with Tate.
After listening to the podcast, Victoria denied the claims in a short TikTok video, saying that she is ‘involved with #MomTok’ but has nothing to do with the swinging.

Taylor, 28, has alleged that she and her husband, Tate Paul, are getting divorced after soft swinging with their pals
However, she seemed to confirm Taylor’s story by claiming she knows the other influencer couple in the group.
‘Guys, I know who the other couple was,’ she said. ‘They’re getting divorced, and it’s not me. Ughh, it’s humiliating. This is my life right now. I’m basically famous.’
Victoria previously denied their involvement after Taylor allegedly confirmed that she didn’t hook up Selver.
‘Can we confirm we did not get together ever?’ Taylor wrote in a comment.
‘Is this good enough you little Reddit trolls?’ Victoria asked in her TikTok video.
‘Yes, we can confirm we did not get together,’ Selver added.

Sam and Camille Munday; Brayden and Mckenna Rowley; Chase and Miranda Hope McWhorter; and Conner and Whitney Leavitt are also among the couples that have been mentioned in regards to the alleged swinging.
Nick said he also reached out to Miranda, but she wrote back saying she’d have to speak to her manager first. She later declined to speak with him.

Miranda had denied the allegations in her own TikTok Live, claiming that she and Taylor had a falling out because she started a rumor that her husband, Chase, had feelings for her.
Meanwhile, TikTok user @gossipingviv shared a screenshot of one of Miranda’s comments saying she and Chase ‘definitely were not involved.’
Whitney also hit back at the rumors in a clip she posted on her own TikTok page last week amid the drama.
‘It’s so interesting to me that people are asking Taylor to basically “clear” their name,’ she said. ‘I’m like f**k that. I’ll clear my own name’
‘I don’t even know why MomTok was mentioned,’ she added. ‘I am not a swinger. I have never swang, and, hey, if you’re a swinger and you want to swing, then you do you. But that’s not me and Conner.’
Nick was admittedly skeptical of Taylor’s story because of the speculation that she is making this up for clout, but he said she ‘sounded sad’ and ‘frustrated with the situation.’
He also noted that she made it seem like her husband, Tate, was divorcing her out of principle because she broke their agreement and not because he wanted to.
Taylor dropped the bomb that she and her husband were allegedly soft swinging on TikTok Live
According to the Mormon influencer, their friend group had an agreement that they would switch partners but not ‘go all the way,’ which is known as a ‘soft swap’
Taylor admitted she ‘did step out of that agreement’ when she got drunk and went off with a friend’s husband, but she noted that ‘everyone has hooked up with everyone in this situation’
The drama started on May 20 when Taylor announced on TikTok that she and Tate are getting a divorce.
‘In my twenties, getting divorced, started therapy, living on my own for the first time ever along with two kids,’ she captioned the clip, which shows her standing alone in her empty house amid her move.
Three days later, she alluded to there being more to the story when she posted footage of herself lying in bed and packing moving boxes.
‘My entire life is falling apart,’ she wrote in the on-screen text. ‘And I can’t even speak on why… without bringing them down with me.’
Taylor and Tate have two young children together, a daughter, Indy, and a son, Ocean, and she painted a rosier picture of their separation in a follow-up video.
The short clip started with throwback photos of Taylor with Tate in happier times and ended with footage of them packing up their house.
‘Excited to co-parent with my best friend,’ she wrote in the caption.

Three days later, she alluded to even more drama when she posted footage of herself lying in bed and packing moving boxes
Taylor claimed in another clip that she was ‘excited to co-parent’ with Tate following their divorce. They share daughter, Indy, and a son, Ocean
However, Tate didn’t appear to feel the same way, and he deleted all photos and videos of Taylor from his social media pages.
Fans didn’t know what to think as there has long been speculation that their family life is scripted. Some thought the divorce announcement was a publicity stunt, and the couple was really moving into a new home together.
Taylor is known for having a strange sense of humor, and she has joked about swinging and not believing in monogamy in previous TikToks.
She’s also made video in which she claimed she was 50 and that two of the women in her #MomTok crew were her 25-year-old twin daughters.
Nick noted on his podcast that Taylor told him most of her TikTok videos are satirical, but her swinging allegations and divorce are real.
As rumors swirled that Taylor had been unfaithful, other moms in their content-creation group allegedly unfollowed her and liked comments that suggested she had cheated on her husband, according to Rolling Stone.

Then, in a bombshell TikTok Live, Taylor opened up about her divorce, claiming that she and Tate were soft swinging with their friends.
According to Taylor’s account, their friend group had an agreement that they would switch partners but not ‘go all the way,’ which is known as a ‘soft swap.’
‘We had an agreement, like all of us, and I did step out of that agreement,’ she admitted. ‘That’s where I messed up, and I, obviously, am losing everything that I have, so that is true.’
Taylor alleged that she and the other wives in the group would make out with each other and each other’s husbands when they were drinking
‘No one was innocent. Everyone has hooked up with everyone in this situation,’ she claimed. ‘So, yes, I’m getting shunned for doing that, but it wasn’t like I was going around hooking up with my friend’s husband.
‘We were at a party, I got belligerent, and we went and messed [around] by ourselves rather than with the whole group,’ she explained, insisting it was a ‘one-time thing.’
Taylor noted that she and Tate had other issues in their marriage before they separated, but ‘this was like the tip of the iceberg’
There is an entire subreddit dedicated to ‘Taylor Paul Drama,’ including a lengthy recap of everything that had gone down the week before
However, she said there were some feelings involved, which complicated the situation.
‘I was friends with these people, and we spent a lot of time together. We were intimate on several occasions, she said. ‘It sucks that I have to admit this because…no one really wants to admit they’re involved in something like that.’
Taylor noted that she and Tate had other issues in their marriage before they separated, but ‘this was like the tip of the iceberg.’
‘Tate has made out with several girls and [done] other things, and I’ve made out with all of the husbands and [done] other things,’ she added.
She refused to name names, but she stressed that fans could easily figure out which couples she was referring to in the TikTok Live.
The mother of two did, however, claim Camille and her husband, Sam, were not a part of the swinging because they brought ‘too much drama’ and Camille didn’t want to be involved.
Miranda Hope McWhorter claimed she and her husband, Chase, were not involved in the alleged swinging, according to TikTok user @gossipingviv
Whitney Leavitt hit back at the rumors on TikTok. ‘It’s so interesting to me that people are asking Taylor to basically “clear” their name,’ she said. ‘I’m like f**k that. I’ll clear my own name’
Amid rumors that Taylor was hit with a cease and desist letter, she took to her Instagram Stories on Wednesday to say that she had spoken to her legal team
Taylor made it clear she has nothing to lose at this point, saying she and Tate had told their families everything that had happened. She admitted her parents were ‘disgusted’ by the revelation.
She insisted that she has proof of her swinging claims in the form of videos and texts if she ever needs it.
Taylor also alleged that there are ‘three divorces in the friend group,’ but one of the breakups is not related to the swinging situation.
‘They’re going to deny it, and that’s fine,’ she said. ‘I’m speaking my truth, and they can speak theirs.’
Amid rumors that Taylor was hit with a cease and desist letter, she took to her Instagram Stories on Wednesday to say that she had spoken to her legal team.
‘Good morning,’ she wrote. ‘I first off wanted to thank my family for being so supportive during this time. Holy s**, family is everything. Also thank you to everyone else checking in without any judgement. I see you, I hear you. I’m overwhelmed though.
‘After talking with my legal team I have all rights to share MY story if wanted,’ she added. ‘However, I feel that I shared a part and will not be sharing anything else from here on out.’
