    Is Will Smith’s Son Jaden Smith Gay?

    Though homophobia may not look like a problem that Hollywood struggles with anymore, it has often held back many celebrities from coming out as gay. Many well-known celebrities have chosen to stay inside the closet due to the fear that their career trajectory may get negatively affected by their sexual identity.

    This subtle homophobia is also a reason that many celebrities come under speculation of being gay. Jaden Smith, the American rapper, actor, singer, and the son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, is one such name. His fans have always wondered about Jaden’s sexual orientation, chiefly because of his fluidic fashion sense and a penchant for feminine clothes. Here’s what we know about Jaden Smith’s sexual orientation.

    Jaden Smith is a fairly popular name in the entertainment industry. He began acting at the age of eight when he starred along with his father in the movie ‘The Pursuit of Happiness’. Smith began his musical career when he was first featured in a Justin Bieber song ‘Never Say Never’.

    Apart from his acting and music, Jaden is known for his androgynous fashion sense. Since people tend to associate feminine fashion sense with being gay, his fans are always speculative about his sexual orientation.

    Besides, his past remark about Tyler the Creator being his boyfriend made in November 2018 also gave a breeding ground to the rumors. After Jaden admitted that Tyler the Creator is his boyfriend at the Camp Flog Gnaw festival while he was performing, people assumed that Jaden is gay. However, it was later revealed to be a sarcastic remark.

    Tyler later denied ever dating Jaden Smith. Smith however carried the joke forward as when Tyler won a Grammy award in 2020 for Best Rap Album, Smith tweeted, “My Boyfriend Just Won A Grammy.” This too was a joke made in healthy spirits.
