Is Jaden Smith Gay? Truth About His Sexuality and Rumored Boyfriend

Jaden Smith has not personally disclosed that he is gay, and the fact that he has quite a history of dating women might mean he is not. Talks of Jaden Smith being gay started in 2018 after he hinted that he was in a relationship with Tyler the Creator, an American rapper and record producer. However, he never came out openly to declare his sexuality as gay.

Meanwhile, a few months after Jaden made the claim, it was reported that he was involved with Kylie Jenner and Cara Delevingne. Recent reports also have it that he is currently in a relationship with a female American model and social media influencer named Sab Zada. Nevertheless, fans are still not sure if he is straight or gay.

What Is Jaden Smith’s Sexuality?

American actor and rapper Jaden Smith has never openly and clearly said anything about his sexuality. However, he once claimed that rapper Tyler The Creator, who is his very close friend, was his boyfriend. This was how the rumors about his sexuality started. He made the declaration during the Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival music festival in Los Angeles in November 2018.

Speaking while on stage at the event, Jaden said lots of admirable things about Tyler The Creator. He described him as one of his closest friends, adding that they have been in a relationship for a long while, but Tyler didn’t want to make it public yet. According to him, “…I wanna tell you, Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler’s my mother f**king boyfriend! And he’s been my mother f**king boyfriend my whole f**king life…It’s true!”

As Jaden made the disclosure, Tyler’s reaction was captured by the camera, and he could be seen backstage, shrugging and giggling. Even though he had a face mask on, his reaction seemed to be a denial of Jaden’s claims.

While some people might have believed Jaden’s statement, it was nothing but a joke, and both he and Tyler have denied having any form of sexual relationship. Meanwhile, owing to the fact that Jaden Smith has been romantically involved with several women in the past, one cannot assume that he is gay unless he says so.

Is Jaden Smith Bisexual?

As far as the public knows, Jaden Smith is not bisexual. However, one cannot completely eliminate that as a future possibility. Jaden has only dated women in the past, and even now, he is dating a female American model and social media influencer whose name is Sab Zada. This points to the fact that he is most likely straight.

However, considering his liberal mindset and fluidity towards gender roles, it is possible that he may become romantically involved with men in the future. If this were ever to happen, then he would be described as bisexual.

What Is Jaden Smith’s Gender?

Jaden Smith is gender fluid, although he is a biological male. When a person is gender fluid, or simply fluid, it means that the person’s gender identity (the gender he identifies with most) is not fixed. Therefore, it can change over time or from day to day, depending on the situation.

In addition to being fluid, Jaden also sees no gender distinctions when it comes to people. Speaking to British GQ Style in an exclusive interview in 2016, he said he only sees two kinds of human beings: ‘scared people and comfortable people.’

Due to his genderless standards, Jaden Smith wears both male and female clothes, which he said was his way of challenging gender stereotypes. This has been one of the reasons a lot of people have been confused about his sexuality, with many assuming that he is gay.

Jaden’s fluidity was also the reason he was able to take part in Louis Vuitton’s womenswear campaign in 2016, where he wore a skirt. This made him the first male to model female clothing for the French designer.

Speaking after the event, Jaden said he does not mind taking all the strong criticism for his choice today so that a child who does so tomorrow does not face the same thing. Since then, he has continued to dress in female clothing on the runway and on the red carpet.

Jaden Smith’s gender fluidity, therefore, means that he sees gender as a spectrum and not as an established identity, and he is pioneering that adventure.

Who Is Jaden Smith’s Boyfriend?

Jaden Smith does not have a boyfriend and has never been romantically linked to any man. However, he made some people believe he was dating his best friend, rapper Tyler the Creator, in November 2018 when he referred to him as his boyfriend, but a source who spoke to PEOPLE revealed that he was only trolling.

Jaden Smith and Tyler the Creator are not dating, but Jayden tried making people believe that they were when he told fans that they’d been in a relationship for a long time during the Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival music festival in Los Angeles in November 2018.

Afterward, Jaden Smith took to Twitter to say that Tyler won’t tell anyone about their relationship, so he did. In response, Tyler said, “hahaha you a crazy n***a man.”

While Tyler neither confirmed nor denied Jaden’s relationship claims, Smith was repeatedly vocal about being in a relationship with him. After the above tweet, Jaden once again confirmed that he was in a relationship with Tyler The Creator during his appearance on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio in November 2018 to promote his mixtape titled The Sunset Tapes: A Cool Tape Story. 

During the show, he said, “I recently said that Tyler, the Creator is my boyfriend, and that’s true. So, just so you know”. Also, when Tyler emerged winner of the 2020 Grammy Award for Best Rap Album, Jaden quickly took to Twitter to share that his “boyfriend” had just won a Grammy Award.

However, this turned out to be mere friendly trolling, as both Jaden and Tyler later denied having anything sexual between them.

Who Is Jaden Smith Dating Now?

According to several reliable sources, Jaden Smith is currently dating Sab Zada, an American model and social media personality. Sab was born on June 18, 1999, and is just eleven months and some days younger than Jayden, who was born on the 8th of July, 1998.

The model is an American citizen of mixed ethnicity, which comprises Chinese, Filipino, and Hispanic roots. She has participated in campaigns for several brands, such as L’Oréal Paris, among others. She also has more than 600k followers on Instagram.

Speculations about Jaden and Sab’s relationship started sometime in September 2020 when they were spotted holding hands and looking all lovey-dovey on a dinner date. Since then, they have been going strong, and more than anything, their relationship confirms that Jaden isn’t a gay man, at least for the time being.
