James has dated –
- Myka Stauffer (2012-Present) – James and YouTube star Myka met in 2012, through OkCupid. The couple tied the knot in 2014 and had been residing in Indianapolis at the time. Together, the couple has three biological children Onyx Stauffer (b. July 1, 2019), Radley Stauffer (b. August 21, 2015), and Jaka Stauffer (b. December 18, 2013). In 2017, James and Myka adopted a boy whom they named Huxley from China and raised him for 3 years before announcing that they had rehomed their 5-year-old autistic son. In the video, they stated that the extent of Huxley’s needs had not been made clear to them during the process of the adoption which they were not able to cope with, hence their decision to let go of him. The video that was uploaded to the family’s YouTube channel in May 2020, led to severe backlash and the loss of thousands of subscribers. Eventually, after things began to get out of control on social media, the family decided to delete their YouTube channel.
