AceShowbiz - Jaden Smith surprised everyone at the Camp Flog Gnaw music festival in California when he announced onstage that Tyler, The Creator is his boyfriend. Addressing the crowd in between his performances, he raved about the 27-year-old rapper.
"I just wanna say Tyler, The Creator is the best friend in the world and I love him so f***ing much," he gushed as captured in an Instagram video. "And I wanna tell you guys something - I wanna tell you. Tyler doesn't wanna say, but Tyler's my motherf***ing boyfriend! And he's been my motherf***ing boyfriend my whole f***ing life!"
The camera then panned to Tyler, who was standing just below the stage. Tyler shook his finger and head in denial while laughing. Jaden insisted though, "Tyler, The Creator is my f***ing boyfriend! It's true!"
After his statement went viral, Jaden took to Twitter to once again stress their relationship. He tweeted, "Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can't Deny It Now." Responding to this, Tyler wrote in reply, "hahaha you a crazy n***a man."

While Tyler's reaction doesn't sound like a full-on denial, he seems to be treating it as a playful joke.
Jaden has never confirmed his sexuality, but he is known for embracing gender-fluid fashion. He once wore a dress in a layout for Vogue Korea in 2016 and later defended his fashion choice, tweeting at the time, "If I Wanna Wear A Dress, Then I Will, And That Will Set The New Wave...."
The 20-year-old actor/singer additionally told GQ, "I don't see man clothes and woman clothes. 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. I just see scared people and comfortable people."
As for his relationship history, he took actress Amandla Stenberg to her prom in 2015, but she came out as bisexual a year later. Jaden later dated Sara Snyder for two years before breaking up in 2017.
Tyler, meanwhile, has several times claimed that he tried to come out of the closet as gay. He alluded to his sexuality on his 2017 album "Flower Boy". On "I Ain't Got Time!", he raps, "Next line will have 'em like 'whoa' / I've been kissing white boys since 2004." Lyrics on other tracks, "Foreword" and "Garden Shed", also suggest at his sexuality.
