The son of award-winning Hollywood actor Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett-Smith has come out as gay.
Jaden Smith has revealed he is dating Tyler, the Creator, referring to the rapper as his boyfriend while on stage at a Californian festival, news.com.au says.
Twenty-year-old Jaden told the crowd at Camp Flog Naw Carnival that he is dating the I Ain’t Got Time rapper.
“Tyler, the Creator is my [expletive] boyfriend, it’s true,” Smith said.
“Tyler doesn’t wanna say, but Tyler is my [expletive] boyfriend, and he’s been my [expletive] boyfriend my whole [expletive] life,” Smith added, during his confession at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
But Tyler, the Creator — who was wearing a face mask — shook his head to suggest no during Smith’s love declaration.
Smith later tweeted about it, saying US rapper Tyler — whose real name is Tyler Gregory Okonma — could no longer deny they were an item.
Smith has previously spoken out about challenging gender stereotypes, and wearing dresses.
“I don’t see man clothes and woman clothes,” Smith told GQ.
“I feel like people are kind of confused about gender norms.
“I feel like people don’t really get it.
“I’m not saying that I get it, I’m just saying that I’ve never seen any distinction.
“If I wanna wear a dress, then I will, and that will set the new wave”.
Tyler, the Creator’s 2017 album Flower Boy was said to have addressed his sexuality.
On the song, I Ain’t Got Time, he suggests he has been romantically involved with men, “I’ve been kissing white boys since 2004”.
