AceShowbiz – Solange Knowles‘ teen son Daniel Julez J. Smith Jr., who recently made headlines over a video of his cousin and Beyonce Knowles‘ daughter Rumi, has caught people’s attention again, this time regarding his sexual preference. People have been speculating that he’s gay.
Julez has now addressed the rumor when he turned on his Instagram Live. Someone brought this up as he/she claimed, “He dating Tae. Nicki wig person.” The said user was possibly referring to Arrogant Tae, who was hired by Nicki Minaj as her hairstylist in 2018 but reportedly quit just a month later after being blasted by her fans.
Another curious follower then straight forwardly asked him in the comments, “Are you gay?” Julez, seemingly baffled by the speculation, asked back, “Why people are saying I’m gay?” Setting the record straight, he then declared, “I’m not gay.”
Julez recently was forced to defend himself after a new video of Beyonce’s 2-year-old daughter Rumi circulated online. The clip, which was allegedly taken by the 15-year-old teen, features the twin daughter of Bey and Jay-Z who has grown up a lot since the last time fans saw her.
While fans were thankful to Solange’s son for allegedly sharing the video, Julez later took to his Instagram Stories to deny that he shared the clip. “Please someone explain how someone got the video of my cousin because I’ve never posted that video ever,” he wrote on Instagram Stories, adding, “Please delete that video.” The video then quickly disappeared from the Internet, possible with Beyonce’s team being involved.
Interestingly, Julez’s mother Solange was recently also hit with gay rumor. Words were she’s dating Syd, a founding member of the band The Internet who was also a member of the alternative hip hop collective Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, following her split from husband of five years, Alan Ferguson, last year. Solange’s camp, however, has told MTO News that there’s no truth to the rumor mill.
