As it turns out, Kylie Jenner and Tyga are just friends!
…Well, according to Tyga, at least!
During a recent radio interview, the 25-year-old rapper opened up about his relationship with the 17-year-old reality TV starlet, and he says that she’s definitely not the reason that he and his ex Blac Chyna ended their relationship.
“I’m not dating Kylie, I just want to get that out of the way,” he said (via E! News). “I want to be clear to everybody that I didn’t leave my family to be with Kylie. That’s ridiculous. Me and Chyna, we broke up almost close to a year [ago] now, because of the decision we made, and things in our relationship that weren’t going right, [so we] decided to split to raise an emotionally stable kid.”
Tyga went on to say that he has been friends with the Kardashian/Jenner clan for years, and that reporters only started taking notice when they realized he lived next Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
“…TMZ didn’t really care about me until they figured out that I live next door to Kim [Kardashian] and Kanye [West] and all that stuff,” the “Rack City” rapper explained. “But I been friends with them before I even met [Blac] Chyna. I was friends with […] her family for years, so me hanging out with them was nothing new. People just want to make a story out of it. … It’s crazy, the s*** that they make up is the craziest things I ever heard of.”
He also added that he thinks that Kylie is a “beautiful young woman” who is very mature for her age, but that’s the extent of it.
“It’s not like I’m out here holding hands with her or kissing her. I’m not doing anything disrespectful,” Tyga said. “I’m raising my son. I see my son every day, he’s with me every day if he’s not with Chyna or if we’re not spending time together.”
The situation with Kylie and Tyga was fodder for an on-going fight between Blac Chyna’s BFF Amber Rose and Jenner’s sister Khloe Kardashian, which is currently playing out in the form of a Twitter battle.
Meanwhile, Drake also recently dissed Tyga in his new mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, calling him out for his alleged relationship with Jenner with the lyric, “Oh you tried, it’s so childish calling my name on the world stage/ You need to act your age and not your girl’s age.”
Of the feud with Drake, Tyga said, “I feel like he’s a nice guy on the outside, but, he’s not genuine. He plays people left and right. That’s just my opinion and I’m entitled to have my own opinion.”
