Are Tyler the Creator and Jaden Smith Dating

Some sh*t went down at the 2018 Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles over the weekend. Jaden Smith, the 20-year-old son of Will and Jada, performed at the annual music festival created by Tyler the Creator. Smith made a revelation while he was on stage. "Tyler doesn't wanna say, but Tyler is my muthaf-ckin' boyfriend, and he's been my muthaf-ckin' boyfriend my whole f*ckin life," Tyler, the Creator is my f*ckin' boyfriend! It's true." Smith yelled, according to XXL. Naturally, what we want to know is if this is true! Are Tyler the Creator and Jaden Smith dating?

1. What went down?

Jaden was a part of the 2018 lineup that also included Ms. Lauryn Hill, Playboi Cardi, Kanye West, Post Malone, Sza, Tyler the Creator, and more. He made the statement we quoted above during his set. He also said, “I just want to say Tyler, the Creator is the best friend in the world, and I love him so f—ing much." Reportedly, Tyler stood just off stage laughing and smiling and shaking his head no while Jaden appeared to come out of the closet in a very public way. 

2. Hip hop's new power couple?

It was hard to tell in the moment whether or not Jaden was goofing off or revealing a major scoop. He's not usually one to hold back information. His Twitter account has a very stream-of-consciousness feel to it. He also dresses in a fashion-forward, gender-fluid style but up until this past weekend, Smith has not publicly commented on his sexuality. In 2016, Smith told British GQ, “I don’t see man clothes and woman clothes, I just see scared people and comfortable people.”

3. The follow up

Fans want to know if Jaden was trolling Tyler the Creator or telling the truth. Smith took whatever this is to Twitter after the festival, saying, “Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can’t Deny It Now.”, Tyler responded, “hahaha you a crazy n— man.”

4. Is Jaden trolling?

There is some speculation that Jaden was trolling Tyler, who has taken some heat in the past for the use of the word "faggot" in songs. Back in 2017, Tyler revealed that he had a boyfriend when he was 15, saying: “Open-minded now? I had a boyfriend when I was 15 in f—ing Hawthorne, n—-. If that’s not open-minded, then I don’t know what the f— is.”  Later he claimed that was a figure of speech. Even earlier, Tyler took to Twitter to say: "I tried to come out of the damn closet like four days ago and no one cared. HAHAHAHAHHA."

5. So, are they or aren't they?

Who knows! I will say one thing though, we are all here for Smith and Tyler if they are boyfriends. Talk about bringing some much needed diversity to the hip hop industry!
