Girlfriend / Spouse
- Paris Anderson (2016-2017) – He dated a girl named Paris from his hometown Augustus, Kansas. She was a public school student who was often judged by her schoolmates for getting featured in Tanner’s videos. Tanner shared in one of his videos that during the initial months of dating Paris, he relived a lot of bullying and judgment that he had faced in school back when he had first started posting YouTube videos.
When outside judgment calmed down with the onset of summer vacation, Tanner had to travel a lot to honor the commercial deals that came his way as a result of his rapidly growing YouTube audience. The time that they spent away from one another caused the couple to fight a lot and they used to frequently break up and then get back together again. Since the arguments would often upset Tanner for days, while also affecting his ability to work, he realized that his lifestyle had no space for a relationship. Therefore, he announced his break up with Paris on YouTube in July 2017. They continued to remain friends but their amicable break-up eventually went awry. Tanner and Paris had an online feud in the early 2018 and both gave away a lot of anger and dislike for each other.
