Jaden Smith is the middle son of the famous actor, born in the second marriage with Jada Pinkett. He's 20 years old, he's a dancer and a rap-singer, and he has already taken part in a few films as an actor.

He has been suspected of being gay previously as he could make public appearances wearing women's clothes.

But it's the first time he openly announced having a boyfriend.

Jaden called Tyler, The Creator – his friend from the stage in LA. It was Tyler's concert:

I just want to say...Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler’s my boyfriend and he’s been my boyfriend my whole life.

It was a surprise for everyone.

The musician present in the hall was showing in every way possible that it's a joke. But Smith kept on insisting by repeating the same thing: 

"Tyler, the Creator is the best friend in the world and I love him so much".

"He’s been my boyfriend my whole life".

Later they continued this discussion on Twitter, where the rapper was still denying the role of a lover he was entrusted with. 

The reaction of the celebrity father to his coming-out is still not confirmed and there might not be any reaction at all. Grown-ups are entitled to make their own choices.
