What Are Tyler, the Creator's Past Relationships?
Model and actress Zendaya was linked to Tyler in the past. In 2015, it was rumored that Tyler and Zendaya were dating after he posted an Instagram selfie with her. Even though the photo looked harmless, fans worried that their relationship might be more intimate than it seemed. Still, neither Tyler nor Zendaya has said they ever dated. Then, in 2017, Tyler was allegedly linked to actress Steffanie Christi'an. The pair sparked dating rumors when they were seen together publicly, but Tyler never confirmed their relationship. The following year, it was also reported that the rapper was involved with a woman named Gio Rai. However, no pictures or videos were ever released of the alleged couple. Nevertheless, people speculated they were keeping their relationship out of the public eye.
Tyler Gives Insight Into His Sexuality
Tyler has done the best job of keeping his dating history a secret. Tyler has never been seen with a specific person in public, but there have been rumors that he isn't straight. Moreover, fans have used his lyrics as proof. For instance, he raps in his critically acclaimed album Flower Boy's song "I Ain't Got Time" that he has been "kissing white boys since 2004." In a 2015 interview, Tyler also said, "[I] had a boyfriend when I was 15 in f--g Hawthorne [California], n-a. If that's not open-minded, I don't know what the f-k that is." However, Tyler stated elsewhere that he was aware of questions regarding his sexuality and preferred to keep things vague.
Jaden Smith Speculation
In 2017, Jaden Smith did a show at Tyler's Camp Flog Gnaw in California. When he was on stage, he told the crowd that Tyler, the Creator was his boyfriend. This made people wonder if the pair were actually in a committed relationship. Smith said: "I wanna tell you... Tyler doesn't want to say, but Tyler's my motherf-king boyfriend, and he's been my motherf-king boyfriend my whole f-king life!" He also stated, "It's true! Tyler, the Creator is my f-king boyfriend. If you take anything away from this f-king show, that's what you take away!"
Soon after the show, Jaden tweeted, "Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can't Deny It Now." Tyler replied: "Hahaha you a crazy n-a man." Many people on Twitter praised their relationship, while others thought it was just a marketing ploy or a joke between them. Also, Smith called Tyler, the Creator his boyfriend again when the Igor star won a Grammy in 2020. Since then, neither Jaden nor Tyler has said anything that suggests they are dating.
