"I wanna tell you, Tyler doesn't want to say, but Tyler's my mother-fucking boyfriend and he's been my mother-fucking boyfriend my whole fucking life!" exclaimed Smith.
Smith, who is the son of movie stars Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, later tweeted, "Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can't Deny It Now."
Tyler, who was hosting the festival, appeared astonished by Smith's words. The rapper has never had a formal coming out, yet lyrics to his music have historically fueled speculation around his sexuality. In his 2017 album Flower Boy, Tyler, the Creator rapped, "I been kissing white boys since 2004."
