Tyler, the Creator, and Jaden Smith have frequently left their fans guessing about the nature of their connection.
Smith and Tyler have been buddies since the 2010s. Since then, the rappers have collaborated on music videos and performed at a number of events. Back in 2018, the two hinted that there might be more between them.
Jaden Smith revealed his friendship with Tyler, the Creator on Twitter initially.
Jaden Smith confirmed his love life in 2015, despite earlier relationship allegations involving Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, and Sofia Richie. Tyler and the “Cabin Fever” rapper have struck up a friendship, according to Tyler’s Twitter account. The two had been friends for several years, but Smith said they shared something more.
Smith tweeted, “@f*cktyler I Think I’m In Love With You.” “I’m not sure, I’m still figuring it out, but Happy Birthday in the meantime.”

Following some internet rumblings in the wake of his tweet, Smith remained tight-lipped regarding his relationship with Tyler. However, in 2018, the actor chose to express his respect for Tyler once more. At Tyler’s event, Camp Flog Gnaw, Smith declared his love for him.
“I just want to say Tyler, the Creator is the best buddy in the world, and I love him so f—ing much,” Smith stated on stage, as fans recorded it on film. “And I’d like to share something with you.” Tyler won’t admit it, but Tyler is my mother’s f—ing boyfriend, and he’s been my mother’s f—ing lover for the past f—ing decade.”
“My f—ing boyfriend is Tyler the Creator.” Yes, it is correct! “I just want to say Tyler, the Creator is the best buddy in the world, and I love him so f—ing much,” Smith stated on stage, as admirers recorded him on camera. “And I’d like to share something with you.”
Tyler won’t admit it, but Tyler is my mother’s f—ing boyfriend, and he’s been my mother’s f—ing boyfriend for the past f—ing decade. Tyler the Creator is the f—ing man of my dreams. Yes, it is correct! Tyler the Creator is the f—ing man of my dreams. OK? That’s what you need to take away from this f—ing show if you take anything away from it.”
Tyler responded to Smith’s announcement on Twitter by calling him “crazy.”
Fans of Jaden Smith and Tyler the Creator expressed their conflicted sentiments about their connection.

Smith tweeted Tyler after his Camp Flog Gnaw statement, saying their “secret” was “out” and they didn’t need to hide their relationship. After Tyler won the Grammy for Best Rap Album in January 2020, Smith referred to Tyler as his “lover.”
On Reddit, Smith’s January tweet about Tyler became a hot issue. Several internet users expressed their thoughts on whether or not they believe Smith and Tyler are dating. Based on their past, some fans believe the couple is truly together. Others believe the couple is just buddies who have been fooling around about dating each other all along.
“I had two friends who used to make jokes about dating, including changing their Facebook status on April Fools’ Day. Smith and Tyler are now married with two children, according to one user.
Another Reddit member remarked, “Every joke contains a little truth.”
“I’ll never understand why people still assume they’re dating,” one fan remarked. “It’s quite obvious Jaden is joking whenever he says that sh*t, and Tyler has consistently refuted it, even on Jaden’s own song.” Jaden posted another tweet “My Boyfriend Just Won A Grammy”.

Tyler The Creator responded after Jaden Smith said they were dating
Tyler the Creator is slamming Jaden Smith for announcing that they’re dating…sort of. During a set at the 27-year-2018 old’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival, the 20-year-old actor/musician stated that he is his “lover.”
The Karate Kid star then went on Twitter to reiterate his claims, saying, “Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can’t Deny It Now.” Tyler did respond to Jaden’s thread, but he didn’t explicitly state that he was mistaken. The former Odd Future frontman wrote, “Hahaha you a crazy n***a dude.” Is it safe to assume they’re dating or not? Is it possible that the two gentlemen are only teasing fans?
