'It's true,' Jaden Smith insists and reaffirms that Tyler the Creator is his boyfriend
Jaden Smith, the son of Will Smith, took to Twitter to reaffirm what he said about his fellow rapper Tyler the Creator being his “boyfriend.”
In the middle of a concert Jaden performed at Tyler’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival on November 11, the man appeared onstage saying that Tyler was the “best friend in the world.” Soon later, he added that he loved him so much.
After that, Jaden said, “I wanna tell you guys something, I wanna tell you, Tyler doesn’t wanna say, but Tyler is my [expletive] boyfriend [sic],” while pointing at the rapper on one side of the stage.
The camera quickly captured Tyler’s reaction. He removed the facemask he was wearing, looked at the crowd, waved his hand, and said that it was not true. He did it all while laughing, what might suggest that it was a joke.
FIRST TIME JADEN REAFFIRMED HIS REMARKS
Soon after that video went viral, Jaden took to Twitter to reaffirm what he said onstage. In the now-deleted post, he wrote, “Yup [Tyler] I Told Everyone You Can’t Deny It Now.” Tyler replied to his tweet by writing, “hahaha you a crazy [expletive] man.”
REAFFIRMING IT - PART TWO
That was not the only thing he said to "confirm" their relationship, though. While promoting his new music, he went to Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio wherein he pointed out that what he said about Tyler being his boyfriend was “true.”
During that interview, Jaden talked about one of his new songs, titled “Fallen Part 2.” He said that he wrote it thinking about his previous relationship with Odessa Aldon, admitting that it was his way of saying “I’m sorry” again.
"I wanna tell you guys something, I wanna tell you, Tyler doesn’t wanna say, but Tyler is my [expletive] boyfriend."
RUMORS ABOUT TYLER’S SEXUALITY
It is not the first time that both of them have been involved in rumors suggesting that they are gay. In Tyler’s case, the speculations began after he rapped about “kissing white boys” on his 2017 LP titled “Flower Boy.”
Apart from that, he said during an interview with Rolling Stone in 2015 that he “100% would go gay for ’96 [Leonardo DiCaprio].” Later, he posted a picture of the actor from the 1996 film “Romeo + Juliet” followed with the caption, “yes boyfriend yes.”
RUMORS ABOUT JADEN’S SEXUALITY
People started wondering about Jaden’s sexuality and gender identity a couple of years ago, when he decided to be the face of a 2016 Louis Vuitton womenswear campaign for which he posed next to a couple of female models wearing skirts and blouses.
At the moment, there is a lot of mystery about Jaden’s revelation. It is not clear whether he is just messing around, telling the truth, or attracting attention as a marketing strategy for his new album titled “The Sunset Tapes: A Cool Tape Story.”
