Will Smith’s talented offspring, Jaden Smith, has stirred up a whirlwind of speculation after publicly declaring that Tyler, the Creator is his romantic partner.
At the tender age of 20, Jaden has found himself immersed in the limelight from a young age. Multitalented, he regularly switches between the roles of musician and actor, with one of his early gigs being the leading role in the movie Karate Kid.
In one of his more recent business ventures, Smith became the first male to front a womenswear campaign for Louis Vuitton.
Jaden professed what he called “the truth” during a performance at a recent bash held in Los Angeles for Tyler’s sixth annual Camp Flog Gnaw festival.
“I just want to say Tyler, the Creator is the best friend in the world, and I love him so f—ing much,” Smith expressed on stage, while his fans clutched at their smartphones and hit the record button.
“And I want to tell you guys something. Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler’s my mother f—ing boyfriend and he’s been my mother f—ing boyfriend my whole f—ing life. Tyler the Creator is my f—ing boyfriend. It’s true!”
As the camera swung in Tyler’s direction, the 26-year-old artist could be seen laughing and shunning off the claims as a joke, shaking his head as he did so.
“Tyler the Creator is my f—ing boyfriend. Okay? If you take anything away from this f—ing show, that’s what you need to take away,” Jaden continued.
Of course, the discussion spread to social media, with Smith tweeting, “Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can’t Deny It Now.”
Tyler’s response on the Monday following the weekend’s event read, “hahaha you a crazy n— man.”
Although neither have publicly labeled their sexuality, Tyler admitted to having a boyfriend back in 2015.
“I TRIED TO COME OUT THE DAMN CLOSET LIKE FOUR DAYS AGO AND NO ONE CARED HAHAHHAHAHA,” read his tweet.
Back in 2017, Tyler’s album titled Flower Boy pretty much clarified his feelings for the opposite sex with the following rap lyrics:
“I Ain’t Got Time!”: “Next line will have ’em like ‘whoa’ / I’ve been kissing white boys since 2004.”
