If his past relationships are anything to go by, it is safe to say that Jaden Smith is not gay and there has been nothing to suggest that he is transgender but there’s more about his sexuality than what we see.

25-year-old Jaden Smith is Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s first child together as a married couple and having followed in the footsteps of his parents by going into show business, the rapper cum actor who began his career as early as when he was eight years old has divided opinion with regards to his sexuality. A lot of unusual behavior on the part of Jaden Smith has led to the media and members of the public wondering if he is gay or transgender.

Truths about Jaden Smith’s sexuality

The questions about his sexuality are things that Smith has not explicitly declared. His deliberate, willful, and uncoerced actions over the last five to ten years have left that aspect of his personality open to speculation. His gender-fluid fashion choices have done nothing to quell these speculations as the singer-songwriter insists on keeping fans guessing with the way he chooses to dress and conduct himself, especially while out in the public.

Jaden Smith appears to be quite comfortable in his own skin and doesn’t pay much attention to questions about his sexuality. He takes a very hard stance on people who choose to cast aspersions on his personality simply because of the way he chooses to dress. He further went on to say that the reason he allows the criticisms of his person because of his fashion choices is to create a change and forestall any such occurrences in the future for a kid who decides to do so.

In 2016, Jaden Smith famously or infamously, depending on your point of view, decided to appear in a pleated skirt and a fancy leather jacket for Louis Vuitton’s womenswear campaign, setting a trend in the process. He had previously created a fashion line with his sister, Willow Smith, called MSFTSRep. The line which began as a youth collective community was designed by the rapper to protect and give a voice to people who wanted to wear whatever they wanted to wear without having to be labeled for their fashion choices.

Jaden Smith’s relationship history

The actual truth about the songwriter’s sexuality could lie in his previous relationships. An in-depth look at his past romantic affairs shows that he has primarily dated women. There is however one instance that still leaves people confused with regards to who he is after he came out publicly in 2018 to refer to the rapper, Tyler the Creator, as his boyfriend. He did so at a music carnival held in November of that year and to the hearing of thousands of people in the audience.

He followed up on that declaration a couple of years later when Tyler won the best rapper at the 2020 Grammys by proudly tweeting that his boyfriend had just won an award. The rumors about a romantic relationship existing between the duo are still something that circulates the airwaves despite Jaden coming forward to deny those rumors.

There is certainly no rumor about the women in his past as he has been in a relationship with a good number of them. Let’s take a look at women the rapper has been romantically linked to.

Jaden Smiths relationships

Madison Pettis

Jaden Smith’s first real relationship was with talented actress, Madison Pettis. After meeting in 2007 following Madison’s rather excellent outing in the movie titled The Game Plan, they didn’t begin to date at once but stayed close enough to each other as friends. Jaden and Madison officially began to date in May 2010 but the relationship fizzled out after about a year.

Stella Hudgens

Right on the heels of his first romance, the then 13-year-old Jaden hooked up with another actress named Stella Hudgens in August 2011. The relationship was filled with all the hallmarks of classic erratic teen behavior as they were never without controversy over the very short period of time that they dated. The charade inevitably ended in 2012.

Sofia Richie

As a young teenager, it appeared as if Jaden found it difficult to be alone for a reasonable amount of time because no sooner than his relationship with Hudgens ended than he began dating the celebrity daughter of iconic R&B singer, Lionel Richie. Lionel’s daughter, Sofia and Jaden Smith became an item officially in November 2012. This relationship is arguably the shortest of Jaden’s love history as they called it quits in January 2012, barely three months after they started going out. They are still close friends and have been seen on several occasions grabbing dinner together. As expected, there have been rumors about them getting back together but Jaden has waved such claims aside, saying they are just “homies”.

Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner, in all likelihood, has the highest profile among all the ladies Jaden has dated, but the now popular social media influencer and a brand consultant was not that big when she started dating Jaden. As a matter of fact, she founded her now thriving company over the course of the one year that she and Jaden dated from March 2013 to March 2014.

Amandla Stenberg

Amandla Stenberg and Jaden Smith started out as prom dates back in 2014 before eventually blossoming into full-on lovers. It didn’t however go beyond the one-year mark and things between them came to a close in 2015.

Sarah Snyder

It looks as if Jaden has a thing for women who are older than he is because his relationship with model Sarah Snyder, who is two years older than Jaden, lasted longer than all his previous relationships. He began a relationship with Sarah in 2015 before ending things in January 2017, almost 2 years after.

Odessa Adlon

The timeline of their dating isn’t exactly clear but things ended almost as quickly as they began between them when Odessa caught Jaden kissing some other girl. Odessa Adlon is actress Pamela Adlon’s daughter. Her father, Felix, is also a big name in the movie industry where he works as a writer and producer.

Cara Delevigne

Rumors of a relationship between Jaden and model, Cara Delevigne became rife after the actor and songwriter kissed her on Valentine’s Day 2021 and gave her a bouquet of roses to celebrate. Neither has come out to confirm or deny the rumors and there has been no further activity between the two celebrities who appear to be living their lives independent of each other.

Who is Jaden Smith’s Girlfriend?

The young Smith is currently in a relationship with social media star Sab Zada. Their relationship was made public in September 2020 when the two were spotted holding hands. Subsequently, they have graced many events together, including Coachella 2022, and had a romantic date at Disneyland in February of the same year.

Jaden Smith’s girlfriend is an Instagram model and YouTuber. The duo look cute together and always rally behind each other in support whenever the need arises.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Who was Jaden Smith in a relationship with?

Jaden Smith’s relationship history has seen him date a variety of women, including Stella Hudgens, Madison Pettis, Odessa Adlon, Sofia Richie, and Amandla Stenberg amongst others. Neither of these relationships went beyond the 2-year mark as they all broke down for one reason or the other. The rapper is also rumored to be dating fellow rapper, Tyler the Creator, further fueling the gay rumors about him.

Did Jaden Smith and Kylie Jenner date?

Jaden and Kylie became romantically linked to each other in 2013 because they were always seen together at family events, red carpets, and even attended the same high school. Kylie was 16 and Jaden was a year younger, and the rumors circulated until about 2015 when their respective career paths forced a separation. The nature of their relationship remains a mystery even though both have come out to claim they were just close friends.

Does Jaden Smith have a child?

It will be easy to speculate that given the numerous relationships Jaden has been in, there is no doubt that he has been sexually active. While that may be true, the rapper knows enough to use protection to forestall scenarios like the birth of an unwanted child. In addition to that, there are no records to suggest that Jaden Smith has a child.

Did Jaden Smith emancipate himself?

The 25-year-old rapper requested emancipation from his parents when he was 15 years old but ultimately decided against that action. His decision had been motivated by the colossal failure of his movie project After Earth. He blamed his dad, Will, for this failure because the latter had practically walked his son through all the stages of the movie production. Jaden, therefore, felt he couldn’t trust his father with important life decisions and made plans to head out on his own. They eventually patched things up and the emancipation process was stalled.
