Tyler, The Creator is an American rapper who rose to fame as part of the music group Odd Future. Tyler featured in almost all of Odd Future’s projects before releasing his debut solo mixtape Bastard in 2009. He released his debut studio album Goblin in April 2011. Tyler’s fifth album Igor earned him the Best Rap Album award at the 2020 Grammy Awards.
Jaden Smith is the son of actors Will and Jada Smith. He has appeared in films such as The Karate Kid and After Earth. He is also a successful artist with two studio albums. Tyler and Jaden are known to be close, but it is unclear whether they are in a relationship. This piece will provide details about Jaden and Tyler’s relationship.
Jaden has referred to Tyler as his boyfriend several times
Jaden first hinted that he had feelings for Tyler in 2015. He wrote in a tweet directed to Tyler, “I Think I’m In Love With You, I Don’t Know I’m Still Figuring It Out But In The Meantime, Happy Birthday.”
He then publicly confirmed that Tyler was his boyfriend during Tyler’s 2018 Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival. Jaden stated, “Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler’s my motherfucking boyfriend, and he’s been motherfucking boyfriend my whole fucking life.”
Tyler appeared to deny what Jaden was saying by shaking his head and wagging his finger at Jaden. Smith referred to Tyler as his boyfriend again while congratulating him for his Grammy Award win.
Tyler has repeatedly refused to confirm his sexuality
Jaden has repeatedly called Tyler his boyfriend, but fans aren’t convinced about a relationship between the pair because Tyler refuses to confirm his sexuality. His songs have featured homophobic slurs, but in a 2017 song titled I Ain’t Got Time, Tyler stated, “I’ve been kissing white boys since 2004.”
In a recent interview with GQ Tyler cast further doubt on his sexuality when he stated, “I like girls – I just end up fucking their brothers every time.”
Tyler’s refusal to confirm his identity means that we can never be sure whether he and Jaden are an item. He talked to Fantastic Man about why he never gives a definitive answer when it comes to sexuality. Tyler said:
“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.”
Hopefully Tyler will give an answer soon and confirm his relationship status.
