Her controversial relationship with Taylor Caniff
Speaking of her personal life, in 2015 Taylor landed in the center of attention when people started suspecting a love relationship between her and Taylor Caniff. He rose to prominence on the Vine platform, making six second-long sketches and challenges. Reportedly, Taylor accompanied him on his RV tour, during which they became very close. It didn’t take long for fans to start spreading rumors and theories about their relationship. However, everything changed when Taylor came forward and disclosed in an interview that he was single, and wasn’t dating anyone. This move on his behalf enraged Alesia, who quickly jumped-in with claims confronting Taylor’s statement, adamantly claiming that they were, in fact, dating, and that she had video proof of their relationship, subsequently posting a photo of them kissing on a beach which was taken two weeks before.
She claimed that he had promised her to stay in contact after the end of the tour and had invited her to join him on his next tour, in Texas. However, he didn’t keep his word, and to make the matter worse, Taylor ended up bringing his ex-girlfriend Ashley Winson. The whole situation was taken a notch further when she accused Taylor and his manager of pressuring her to keep their relationship a secret. After engaging in a bitter Twitter fight, Taylor accused Alesia of being a liar and clout seeker. She replied with another accusation saying that Taylor threatened to sue her for posting the photo of them kissing. After a while, the tumultuous scandal died down, as both of them came to terms.
Later in 2017, after the “break-up”, Tana Mongeau, another YouTube star, posted a video accusing Taylor of being abusive, racist, and homophobic.
She provided information about his dating history and generally his disrespectful attitude toward women around him. Reportedly, Alesia also had a brief romance with social media star Mikey Barone.
Her relationship with Tanner Fox
In 2017, Alesia began dating another social media star, Tanner Fox, mainly known for making video blogs on YouTube, documenting his interesting life experiences. During their relationship, they made numerous videos together, including “Surprising My GIRLFRIEND With Her DREAM PLACE! **Emotional**” and “Cheating Prank on my Girlfriend”. The couple spent the winter holidays together, which was shown in Tanner’s vlogs. However, not long after, Tanner announced via YouTube that they had broken-up. The decision left many die-hard fans in despair, and speculating what might have happened that lead to the break-up. Just a couple of days after he uploaded that video, Tanner disclosed that they had rekindled their romance.
Naturally, many jumped to point the finger and accuse them of “fishing for views”, to which Tanner responded:” This is actually a really good question, and I think this is good for us to talk about because I think this was blown out of proportion – and people might have taken it the wrong way.” He continued: “First of all – let me say no, obviously it was not for views. I don’t know who would want to go through that.”
Taylor also said:” It’s something that’s just gonna come with doing that, and a lot of people do keep things off-camera and relationship problems they probably keep off camera but we decided to share it with you guys because you are our family.”
However, in 2018 they parted ways, this time for good, but neither of them shared any information or reasons for the separation. Later, Alesia was rumored to have dated Matt Freeman for a while, even though some media outlets claim without evidence that she is still dating Matt.
During one of her streams on YouNow, Alesia generated controversy as she showed her fans a photo of herself and another social media star, Nash Grier, smoking marijuana. Later she posted a photo of Nash’s brother smoking some suspicious cigarette many claimed was a joint. Even though the former Vine star was, according to his fans, a huge stoner, Alesia later clarified on Twitter, adamantly claiming the rumors were untrue, adding that they were smoking a hookah. Many didn’t buy this story, given Nash’s previous homophobic behavior and tendency to engage in illegal activities. Alesia continued defending her stand, saying that her goal was to be a role model for her fans, and as such, she would never be a part of a similar situation.”
