“He’s been my motherfucking boyfriend my whole fucking life!”
American performer Jaden Smith told fans during a concert that rapper Tyler, the Creator is his boyfriend.
While appearing on stage at Flog Gnaw Carnival music festival in Los Angeles, the 20-year-old told the crowd: “I wanna tell you… Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler’s my motherfucking boyfriend and he’s been my motherfucking boyfriend my whole fucking life!”
He added: “Tyler, The Creator is my motherfucking boyfriend! It’s true! Tyler, The Creator is my fucking boyfriend, if you take anything away from this fucking show, that’s what you take away!”
Shortly after the concert, Jaden tweeted, “Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can’t Deny It Now,” to which Tyler responded: “hahaha you a crazy n***a man.”
Fans were quick to praise their ‘romance’ on Twitter, despite not knowing if Jaden was being truthful about their relationship.
@tylerthecreator if you really dating Jaden Smith,” one fan said. “I ship the fuck out of this.”
Another said: “I don’t think Tyler, the Creator and Jaden Smith are actually dating but if they are, I’m here for it!”
Others, were less enthusiastic. “Eh, they just playing gay,” one person opined.
“Are they trolling or are Tyler & Jaden seriously a couple?” another user tweeted.

Jaden has never officially commented on his sexuality, but he has become known in the industry for his androgynous fashion.
“The world is going to keep bashing me for whatever I do and I’m going to keep not caring,” he told Nylon.
“I’m going to take most of the blows… so you know, in five years when a kid goes to school wearing a skirt, he won’t get beat up and kids won’t get mad at him. It just doesn’t matter.
“I’m taking the brunt of it so that later on, my kids and the next generations of kids will all think that certain things are normal that weren’t expected before my time.”
Back in September, Tyler, The Creator revealed that he has been “kissing white boys” for more than a decade.
In a new interview with Fantastic Man, Tyler opened up about the gossip that still surrounds that particular lyric in his song I Ain’t Got Time.
“It’s still such a grey area with people, which is cool with me,” Tyler said. “Even though I’m considered loud and out there, I’m private, which is a weird dichotomy.”
He added: “The juxtaposition of loud and quiet is weird.”
When asked why he started to talk about his sexuality on Flower Boy, Tyler replied: “I don’t know. It’s a literal question and the thing about humans is we hate not having an answer.
“We hate not being in the know. So people will bullshit answers, make shit up, instead of being just, like… I don’t know. There are some things that are just unexplainable.”
In a Rolling Stone interview back in 2015, Tyler, The Creator described himself as “gay as fuck,” as well as listing famous men he’d like to get with.
“My friends are so used to me being gay,” he said in the interview. “They don’t even care.”
Asked why they felt like that, he simply responded with: “Because I’m gay as fuck.”
Questioned further if these are repressed feelings, he replied: “No, but I am in love with ’96 Leonardo DiCaprio. I one hundred percent would go gay for ’96 Leo. Oh, and Cole Sprouse.”
