Tyler, the Creator has completely confused fans about his sexuality. Is he or is he not gay/bisexual?
The rapper stopped by the Know Wave radio show this week and while discussing previous rumors about his alleged homophobia, the 26-year-old confessed this shocking tidbit. “Open-minded now? I had a boyfriend when I was 15 in f*cking Hawthorne, n*gga,” he said.
Tyler Gregory Okonma, the Los Angeles native’s legal name, added, “If that’s not open-minded, then I don’t know what the f*ck is.”
After what appears to be him coming out as bisexual, the rapper quickly backtracked and essentially retracted his statement. “Figure of speech to get koopz ‘open minded’ point across, i was single at 15 haha,” he tweeted.
Fans now are not only confused, but many are calling bs on the back claims. “Takes one step back into the closet,” one person tweeted. Someone else wrote, “Idk dude either you used the struggle of coming out as a publicity stunt or you’re somehow still not okay with coming to terms with ya self.”
Another fan drew reference to Tyler’s latest album Flower Boy, asking, “So is the whole album a figure of speech?”
For years, folks have been questioning the rapper’s sexuality. In fact, it doesn’t necessarily seem to be a secret. Back in 2015, he tweeted: “I TRIED TO COME OUT THE DAMN CLOSET LIKE FOUR DAYS AGO AND NO ONE CARED HAHAHHAHAHA.”
Then last year when rumors hit the web that he and Kendall Jenner were dating, he tweeted: “NOT POSSIBLE, WE’RE BOTH GAY.”
Sound off: Are fans turning a blind eye? Or is it just not believable? As one fan put it … this is just a “publicity stunt.”
We will leave you with these lyrics from the rapper’s track, ‘The Garden Shed:”
Garden shed, garden shed, garden shed
Garden shed for the garçons
Them feelings I was guardin’
Heavy on my mind
All my friends lost
They couldn’t read the signs
I didn’t wanna talk and tell ’em my location
And they ain’t wanna walk
Truth is, since a youth kid, thought it was a phase
Thought it’d be like the Frank; poof, gone
But, it’s still goin’ on
