Kendall Jenner 2016
It was rumored that Tyler and Kendall Jenner had a romance in 2016, but they’ve both denied these rumors. This is most likely a classic case of “a male and female being friends but where photographed together so now they’re dating” scenario.
When dating rumors got out of hand in 2016, Kendall jokingly tweeted at Tyler “apparently we’re dating.” Tyler responded that they couldn’t be dating because they’re both gay. It’s unsure if he’s joking or not, but the two are definitely not dating.
