When you are backed by the famous Smith last name and all that comes with it, everything about you will certainly be of interest to the media. Young Jaden Smith right from his teens can relate well with this and more so, he’s already making a name for himself in the entertainment space.
Actor, rapper, singer, songwriter, dancer, Jaden is the son of renowned Hollywood power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. Jaden was perhaps influenced by the talent that already exists in his family, he made his acting debut in 2003, at the tender age of 6 when he starred in “All of Us”, a UPN show created by his parents which centered around their blended family.
The child star Smith was born on July 8, 1998, in California (Malibu), USA. He’s of a mixed-race of African-Caribbean origin. Jaden and his siblings—an older half-brother named Trey and his young sister, Willow Smith, were raised in a very liberal environment. In order words, their parents gave them the freedom to live life the way they dim fit. At 15, Jaden asked for emancipation from his parents and he got that as a birthday gift.
A Look At Jaden Smith’s Many Girlfriends
Jaden Smith’s love life has become a subject of increased public interest as he has got older. His quirky and eccentric nature has all the more drawn the paparazzi in his direction leaving them scrapping for any personal detail they can get. Though Jaden is still a young man who in many climes would still be finding his feet, his popularity has meant he has been linked with a host of numerous hotties including Kylie Jenner, Odessa Adlon, and Sarah Snyder.
The earliest record of Jaden Smith’s relationship dates back to May 2010 when he reportedly began dating Madison Pettis. The duo was together for 15 months before their relationship ended in August 2011.
He dated Stella Hudgens next from July 2011 to August 2012 after which he hit it off with Sofia Richie. The two briefly dated from November 2012 to January 2013.
Jaden Smith began dating reality TV star Kylie Jenner from January 2013 to September 2014. Their relationship attracted a lot of attention at the time because of the high profile nature of the two youngsters.
Shortly after breaking up with Kylie, in 2014, he started dating American actress Amandla Stenberg. Jaden and Amandla were lovers briefly as they broke up sometime in 2015
Instagram model Sarah Snyder was Jaden’s next bae as they began dating in August 2015. Sarah and Jaden seemed to have a special connection. Sadly, their relationship hit the rocks in September 2016.
Following this failed relationship, Jaden began dating actress Odessa Adlon. Jaden and Odessa’s relationship lasted for 1 year.
In recent times Jaden Smith has even been linked with Tyler, The Creator after Jaden openly called him his “boyfriend”, a phrase that is open to whatever kind of interpretation you want, depending on what side of the prism you are looking from.
Is Jaden Really Gay?
Anyone that knows Jaden will know that he is very unconventional and has been raised to be brave and try out new things. Jaden’s sexuality has come under the microscope in recent times because of his flirting.
While he may have starred as a gay character some time ago, the young star had never given us any reason to question his sexuality, having only dated girls, until recently when he took to the stage to make an announcement that has got a lot of tongues wagging. While performing at the Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles he announced to his audience during one of his gigs that Tyler the Creator is his boyfriend. He followed that up yet again with the same assertion at yet another event.
In his own words Jaden said:
“Tyler, the Creator is the best friend in the world and I love him so much. And I want to tell you guys something. … Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler is my boyfriend,”
Immediately after that statement was made the camera spotted Tyler in the audience shaking his head in disagreement with Jaden. Tyler, on the other hand, has not denied or confirmed the statement, leaving people wondering if Jaden meant what he said or if he was just pulling an expensive publicity stunt.
This issue with Tyler the Creator has cast a shadow over Jaden Smith’s true sexuality leaving some to believe that he is bisexual but still doesn’t want to come out openly to admit such. On the flip side though, Jaden has a history of saying crazy stuff in public and this has led people to believe this might just be another one of Jaden’s gaffes. One thing is certain though, one of these days in true Jaden fashion, he is going to bare his mind on his sexual preference.
