Earlier sparked up rumors have been fueled again and yet again by Jaden Smith himself.
This week Tyler took the gilded gramophone for Best Rap Album for Igor at the Grammy Awards 2020. Just moments after this, Jaden Smith tweeted, ” My BF Just Won A Grammy,” in his signature capitalized style. If you haven’t been following the duo’s confused “friendship,” then this declaration might have surprised you for sure. But for die-hard fans, this is a fact already known.
Rumors and speculations first began when in November 2018, Jaden Smith first addressed the relationship while appearing at the 2018 Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival, which Tyler organizes. Smith said, ” Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler’s my motherf–king boyfriend, and he’s been my motherf–king boyfriend my whole f–king life.”
Tyler was just seen shaking his head and shaking his finger. Smith had also tweeted, asking Tyler not to deny this fact, to which Tyler had wrote, ” hahaha you crazy n—a man.” Later on, in a radio interview, Smith reconfirmed about the same. The fans of the duo weren’t convinced still that he was telling the truth.
The source of this disbelief lies in both the rappers’ past life, relationships, and beliefs. On one hand, Jaden Smith has dated Kylie Jenner in 2013 and then Sarah Synder from 2015-17. Smith and Sarah were notorious for frequent smooching and cuddling in public. However, they broke up after “growing apart” amid cheating rumors.
Synder had inspired numerous songs in Smith’s debut album, Syre. Smith’s relationship with Kylie was also talked a lot among their fans. Jaden is often credited as the reason behind Kylie’s break up from Tyga and, more recently, in October 2019 with Travis Scott. What seems more surprising is that this rumor came up a year after Smith’s CFGC confession.
Mere 24 hours after Kylie’s break up with Travis, Smith was spotted with her at the Justin Bieber- Hailey Baldwin wedding.
On the other hand, as far as Tyler concerned, his past statements place him in a complete another place. Tyler had previously implied that he is queer. He has been criticized for his use of homophobic slurs, in particular, his frequent use of the epithet “faggot” in his lyrics and on Twitter. He was also seen saying, ” I just say faggot and use gay as an adjective to describe stupid shit.”
He is often criticized for his use of homophobic and misogynistic slurs in his lyrics. However, he was among the first ones to support Frank Ocean’s opening about as gay. Tyler has been a subject of speculation regarding his sexuality.
Amid all these rumors, confessions, and statements made by the duo, their relationship remains confusing and complicated. It is hard to tell whether the rappers are actually into each other or if their cryptic relationship is just a way to mess up things for people and nothing else.
However, Jaden Smith’s latest tweet about calling Tyler his boyfriend does spark up matters, their relationship remains rebuttable.
