Actor and rapper Jaden Smith, the son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, unloaded on his concert audience with a topic worthy of an episode on his mother’s insanely popular “Red Table Talk” series.
The Hollywood heavyweight couple has raised their children to be free-thinking, free-spirited young people. And Smith, 20, has used that autonomy to proclaim to the world that Tyler, the Creator, 27, is his boyfriend.
The shocking announcement came during this past weekend’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
There was a pregnant pause between songs where Smith took time to express his feelings for his good buddy.
“I just want to say, Tyler, The Creator is the best friend in the world and I love him so f***ing much,” Smith said to cheers from the crowd.
More than that — much more — Smith then took the topic all the way there when he added this:
“Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler’s my mother f—ing boyfriend and he’s been my motherf—ing boyfriend my whole f—ing life. Tyler The Creator is my motherf—ing boyfriend! It’s true!”

The camera jackknifed to Tyler, who could be seen laughing and shaking his hand as if to say “no” but laughing the entire time.
Smith was not done with the topic. A few seconds later, he again made the declaration that he and Tyler are a couple high decibels:
“Tyler The Creator is my —ing boyfriend. If you take anything away from this f—ing show, that’s what you take away!”
The crowd cheered the announcement from Smith, who then followed up later with a tweet, saying, “Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can’t Deny It Now.”
hahaha you a crazy nigga man

This is not exactly a denial that they are lovers, Smith said. In fact, Tyler didn’t even try to deny it, so many fans are walking away from the whole episode altogether confused.
What do you make of what Jaden Smith said? How do you think Will and Jada are taking the news if they don’t already know about their son’s orientation?
