This is now the third time Smith refers to the 27-year-old rapper as his “boyfriend.”
Jaden Smith is now proclaiming for a third time that Tyler, The Creator is his boyfriend.
The 20-year-old hip-hop artist and actor stopped by Apple Music Beats 1 Radio show on Friday to promote his new mixtape when he brought up the fellow musician.
“I recently said that Tyler, The Creator is my boyfriend, and that’s true, so just so you know,” Jaden said, referring to the proclamation he made earlier this month.
During his set at music festival Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival, Jaden yelled into the mic, “I just wanna say that Tyler, The Creator is the best friend in the world, and I love him so f–king much. And I want to tell you guys something. I want to tell you. Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler’s my mother f–king boyfriend, and he’s been my mother f–king boyfriend my whole f–king life.”
“Tyler, the Creator is my f–king boyfriend,” he insisted. “It’s true.”
The camera panned to Tyler, who playfully shook his head and motioned “no” with his finger while laughing.
Jaden then tweeted, “Yup, @tylerthecreator, I told everyone. You can’t deny it now.”
Once again, Tyler laughed off the claim, replying, “Hahaha. You a crazy n—a, man.”
Tyler’s sexuality has been a topic of conversation for years. Lyrics from his 2017 album, “Flower Boy,” led to speculation that he was coming out as gay, but the 27-year-old California native never confirmed or denied anything. The rapper further fueled the discussion during an August 2017 interview when he said he had a boyfriend at the age of 15. Tyler later said on Twitter he was simply using a figure of speech.
