Over a year after first calling Tyler, The Creator his boyfriend, Jaden Smith is back on the BF train, it seems. In November 2018 the actor and performer said Tyler was his boyfriend, and there was a bit of a to-and-fro between the pair, much to the delight of punters.
However, it never went any further, casting suspicions the pair were out for a good ol’ fashioned troll. Even Justin Bieber jumped into the conversation, claiming he thought he was Jaden’s boyfriend.
Now it seems Jaden is keen to start the whole ‘Tyler is my boyfriend’ thing back up, after posting on Twitter last night: ‘My Boyfriend Just Won A Grammy.’
While Will Smith’s son didn’t mention Tyler by name, many believed he was referring to his former ‘paramour’ after the rapper took home the Grammy award for best rap album for his release Igor.
This thing goes all the way back to 2018, when 21-year-old Jaden sent fans into quite the tizz when he claimed 27-year-old Tyler – real name Tyler Gregory Okonma – was his boyfriend while performing at the annual Camp Flog Gnaw festival.
He said: ‘I just want to say Tyler, the Creator is the best friend in the world, and I love him so f***ing much.
‘And I want to tell you guys something. Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler’s my mother f***ing boyfriend and he’s been my mother f***ing boyfriend my whole f***ing life. Tyler the Creator is my f***ing boyfriend. It’s true!’
As the camera, wielded by a fan, panned over to Tyler, he was seen wagging his finger and laughing.
To really drum the message home, Jaden wrote in a now-deleted tweet following the performance: ‘Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can’t Deny It Now.’
To which Tyler, not denying it per se, replied: ‘hahaha you a crazy n**** man.’
