Jaden Smith is still romancing Tyler, The Creator – according to Jaden Smith. Although Tyler has yet to speak out about their alleged relationship, Jaden has once again insisted they are dating, and thanked a photographer for his best wishes. The moment came when Jaden was caught by the paparazzi during a shopping trip to the Calabasas Commons, and was asked about their status.
Confirming he was dating Tyler by saying yes three times, Jaden then got into his car and when the pap offered him his congratulations, Jaden replied: ‘Thank you.’ Over to you, Tyler.
The 20-year-old first claimed they were together during a performance at Camp Flog Gnaw, on 11 November. Speaking to the crowd – while the 27-year-old was in the audience – he said: ‘I just wanna say Tyler, The Creator is the best friend in the world. ‘And I love him so fucking much, and I wanna tell you guys something, I wanna tell you, Tyler doesn’t wanna say, but Tyler is my mother fucking boyfriend.’ Ty, who was wearing a face mask, could be seen laughing and shaking his head ‘no’ during the whole thing.
Twitter users did not know what to make of the exchange, with many assuming that Smith was joking.
“I can’t tell if this is a joke,” one fan tweeted. Another wrote, “I’m honestly so confused.”
Others were fully supportive of the possible romance. “If this is legit I’m stanning,” one tweeter wrote.
Smith, whose parents are Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, has long embraced gender fluidity and was the first man to model Louis Vuitton’s womenswear. Meanwhile, Tyler has said in the past that he dates men and also rapped on his 2017 album, Flower Boy, that he has “been kissing white boys since 2004.”
The Karate Kid star previously dated Sarah Snyder and Odessa Adlon.
Us Weekly has reached out to reps for Smith and Tyler for comment.
