Jaden Smith congratulates boyfriend on his Grammy win

Tyler, the Creator took home his first Grammy award on Sunday in the Best Urban Contemporary Album category, and Jaden Smith was quick to congratulate him. Sort of.

Smith posted a mildly-cryptic message via Twitter, writing simply: “My Boyfriend Just Won A Grammy.”

This isn’t the first time Jaden has referred to his fellow performer as his “boyfriend.”

The 21-year-old son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith debuted the title during a 2018 show, and judging by his delivery and Tyler’s reaction, the gesture seemed more symbolic than literal.

“I just want to say Tyler the Creator is the best friend in the whole world and I love him so f*cking much,” Smith said. “And I want to tell you guys something… Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler is my motherf*cking boyfriend, and he’s been my motherf*cking boyfriend my whole f*cking life. Tyler the Creator is my f*cking boyfriend! It’s true!”


“I recently said that Tyler, the Creator is my boyfriend, and that’s true,” Smith told Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio shortly thereafter. “So, just so you know.”
