Is Jaden Smith Gay or Transgender?

American celebrity kid, Jaden Smith has been in our faces since he could walk. Being the child of a mega superstar father and a very influential mother, it was very certain that he was going to follow in his parent’s footsteps, and become an entertainer himself. Jaden went on to do exactly that, and 23 years later is already an accomplished rapper, songwriter, actor, and model. He debuted in Hollywood alongside his famous father Will Smith, with his appearance in the movie, ‘The Pursuit of Happiness’ and even winning the 2007 MTV Movie Awards for it. He also went on to star in the Jackie Chan-featured classic ‘Karate Kid’ and has continued to increase his own social and financial currency.

Jaden soon branched out and ventured into modeling and fashion, however his fashion statements have gathered a lot of mixed reactions from fans around the world. Looking at several pictures of Jaden Smith, people noticed that the actor’s outfits didn’t exactly fit into the acceptable mold for men. This led to a great avalanche of questions and opinions concerning the sexual orientation of the 23-year-old. Jaden Smith has shown great business acumen by smartly leveraging all the buzz to promote his multiple clothing lines, as well as his music career. But the bane of being a celebrity kid popular in their own right is that the questions still linger: Is Jaden gay? Is he transgender? Why does he wear girls’ clothes? You are about to find out the answers to these questions and more.

Truths about Jaden Smith’s sexuality

The questions surrounding Jaden Smith’s sexuality have not only been kindled by his unconventional dress sense and his outlandish physical appearance. Apparently Jaden lit the internet ablaze with his own words when he insinuated that he was in a relationship with rapper and producer, Tyler the Creator. The ‘Never Say Never’ rapper seemed so casually oblivious of the effect his words would have on the crowd when he blurted out the following at the 2018 Camp Flog Gnaw after his performance,

“I just want to say, Tyler, the Creator is the best friend in the world and I love him so fucking much… Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler’s my motherfucking boyfriend and he’s been my motherfucking boyfriend my whole fucking life.”

This was not the first time that Jade was acknowledging romantic feelings for Tyler as he had previously tweeted in 2015 that he thought he was in love [with Tyler] and that he was still trying to figure his feelings out. It would appear that Jaden’s feelings always seem to be all over the place when it comes to Tyler.

However, Tyler himself has never confirmed nor denied these shout-outs. He has tactfully defected answering any questions suggesting that there may be something going on with himself and Jaden. During all these, Jaden fed more fuel to the fire, and doubled down on the existence of a romantic relationship with Tyler, going further to tag the other in a tweet saying, “Yup. I told everyone you can’t deny it now.”

Tyler has ignored most of these comments, and this has left fans confused as there truly seems to be no real proof of a romance between Jaden and Tyler – not on a sexual level at least. Also, another fact that confuses fans even more, is that Jaden Smith refuses to come out as gay, or even bisexual. In fact, he has been in heterosexual relationships with countless beautiful and famous women. Nonetheless what makes sexuality such a sensitive topic, is that dating girls does not exactly prove or disprove that Jaden is gay. At this point, only Jaden Smith himself can confirm whether he is part of the LGBTQIA or not.
