Joking or Genuine?!: Jaden Smith announces Tyler, the Creator is his boyfriend!
Updated: Nov 18, 2018
Fans of Jaden Smith and Tyler, the Creator are probably scratching their heads after this weekend.
On Sunday, while performing on stage at the Camp Flog Gnaw music festival in Los Angeles, Smith, 20, enthusiastically told concertgoers that Tyler, 27, is his boyfriend.
“I just wanna say Tyler, the Creator is the best friend in the world and I love him so f—king much,” Smith said in a video recorded by a fan. “And I wanna tell you guys something. I wanna tell you — Tyler doesn’t wanna say, but Tyler’s my motherf—king boyfriend!”
While the crowd greeted the claim with cheers and sounds of shock, Smith quipped, “And he’s been my motherf—king boyfriend my whole f—king life. Tyler, the Creator is my f—king boyfriend! It’s true!”
Tyler, who was in the crowd, looked taken aback by the announcement, waving his finger at the audience to signal he wasn’t on board with it.
It’s unclear if the buds simply have a deep bromance or an actual romance.
Tyler, who created the Camp Flog Gnaw festival, has danced around his sexuality on multiple occasions in the past, leaving fans wondering if he was serious. In 2015, he tweeted, “I tried to come out the damn closet like four days ago and no one cared.” Then on his 2017 album, “Flower Boy,” he rapped about “kissing white boys since 2004“ on the track “I Ain’t Got Time!“
Requests for comment from both Smith and Tyler’s teams weren’t immediately returned.
