It's official! Jaden Smith reaffirms that rapper Tyler, The Creator is his boyfriend: 'That’s true, just so you know'
On his Radio show MSFTS Frequency, Jaden reiterated that Tyler was his boyfriend after first talking about their relationship earlier this month
Jaden Smith has reaffirmed the fact that Tyler, The Creator is his boyfriend! USA Today reports that on Friday's episode of his Apple Music Beats 1 Radio Show, MSFTS Frequency, Jaden reiterated the fact that Tyler and he were together, "I recently said that Tyler, the Creator is my boyfriend and that’s true, just so you know."
The 20-year-old first confirmed that Tyler was his boyfriend earlier this month when he paused his performance at Tyler, the Creator's 2018 Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival to declare his love for the rapper. Jaden told his fans onstage, "I just want to say Tyler, the Creator is the best friend in the world and I love him so f*****g much."
Smith told the audience in videos posted on social media by concertgoers: "I want to tell you guys something: Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler is my m*****f*****g boyfriend, and he’s been my m*****f*****g boyfriend my whole f*****g life. Tyler, the Creator is my f*****g boyfriend. It’s true!”
After this ceremonious declaration, the camera panned over to the side of the stage to show Tyler himself, who shook his finger in disagreement while fans cheered on. Jaden then added, "Tyler, the Creator is my f*****g boyfriend, OK? If you take anything away from this f*****g show, that’s what you need to take away."
Jaden then took to Twitter to put up a post that he deleted later. The tweet read, "Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can’t Deny It Now," reports US Weekly. The 27-year-old responded saying, "hahaha you a crazy n**** man." This response made many fans think that Jaden was just joking around, but his latest confirmation makes their relationship official.
Jaden has been open about his sexuality and identifies as gender fluid. He had previously been in a relationship with Sarah Snyder and Odessa Adlon. His sense of style also borrows from a very gender fluid background. Back in 2016, in an interview, he discussed gender fluidity, saying, "I feel like people are kind of confused about gender norms. I feel like people don’t really get it," Jaden said. “I’m not saying that I get it, I’m just saying that I’ve never seen any distinction," according to JustJared. Tyler had also discussed his sexuality in his music. His track 'I Ain’t Got Time!' has lyrics "I’ve been kissing white boys since 2004".
While focusing on his music career, Jaden also made his return to acting. As of 2017, he's starred in a two-part Netflix original 'The Get Down' and had a voice acting role in the Netflix original anime 'Neo Yokio'.
