Jaden Smith is rumored to be gay, but there is no concrete evidence to support such a claim.
Jaden Smith grew up in the spotlight, and being involved in a controversy is not new for him. Both of his parents, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, are superstars, so it’s not surprising to find him in tabloids. One outlet claimed that he was gay, and Gossip Cop investigated it.
Jaden Smith is allegedly gay
Jaden Smith sparked gay rumors after he joked about his relationship with Tyler, the Creator. In 2018, he spoke about his close bond with Tyler during the Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival music festival and repeatedly said he loved the American rapper and musician.
“I just wanna say Tyler, the Creator is the best friend in the world and I love him so [expletive] much,” Smith said when he got on stage. “And I wanna tell you guys something, I wanna tell you, Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler’s my mother [expletive] boyfriend! And he’s been my [expletive] boyfriend my entire life! It’s true!”
The crowd went wild while Smith spoke about his closeness with Tyler. “The Karate Kid” reaffirmed his statement in a tweet by writing, “Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can’t Deny It Now.”
Tyler was caught on camera responding to Smith’s tweet with a laugh. He jokingly called out Smith as a “crazy” man.
Still not satisfied, Smith revived the romantic rumors between them when Tyler won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. Smith took to Twitter and called Tyler his boyfriend.
“My Boyfriend Just Won A Grammy,” he tweeted.

Jaden, Tyler the Creator relationship
Despite Jaden Smith’s tweets and statements about him and Tyler, the Creator, there is nothing romantic between the two. Apparently, Smith was just joking. It doesn’t appear that the two are dating, Gossip Cop reported.
Jaden Smith and Tyler, the Creator, share a close bond, personally and professionally. In fact, in an interview with Zane Lowe, Smith mentioned working with Tyler for their collab single Noize. Smith also praised Tyler’s talent. But there is no indication that there is something going on between them more than friendship.
Also, Smith has become a fashion icon for LGBTQ+ for his gender-fluid fashion choices that includes a pleated skirt and cool leather jacket for a Louis Vuitton women swear campaign. He also started a non-binary fashion line, MSFTS. However, he never directly commented on his sexual orientation.
