Jaden Smith says Justin Bieber “knows” he is his boyfriend

It comes after Smith recently referred to rapper Tyler, The Creator as his “boyfriend.”

The 20-year-old Karate Kid star made the comments on November 12 while appearing on stage at Flog Gnaw Carnival music festival in Los Angeles, which is run by Tyler, The Creator.

Smith told the crowd: “I wanna tell you…Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler’s my motherf***ing boyfriend and he’s been my motherf***ing boyfriend my whole f***ing life!”

He added: “Tyler, The Creator is my motherf***ing boyfriend! It’s true!

“Tyler, The Creator is my f***ing boyfriend, if you take anything away from this f***ing show, that’s what you take away!”

After the concert, Jaden Smith posted on Twitter: “Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can’t Deny It Now.”

Tyler, The Creator responded: “hahaha you a crazy n***a man.”

The announcement was celebrated by some Jaden Smith fans on Twitter, while others wondered whether he was being completely serious about the romance with Tyler, 27.

One Twitter post reads: “Jaden Smith just came out of the closet and omggdhbsfhsnnal.”

But another insisted: “I don’t think Jaden Smith & Tyler The Creator are actually dating. You can tell by his laugh while saying it & Tyler’s reaction that it was just a joke.”

One user claimed: “Naw… i think he just used the worng word, he ment to say best friend but he said boy friend because tyler is a boy and he is also a friend.”
