He’s been called out by Drake and Amber Rose for his relationship with 17-year-old Kylie Jenner, and now, Tyga is ready to set the record straight! The rapper sat down with Power 105.1’s ‘The Breakfast Club’ to deny that he’s dating the youngest member of the Kardashian family, and explain why it’s not out of the ordinary for them to spend so much time together.
“I’m not dating Kylie, I’m not dating her,” he began. “So I just want to get that out of the way. I want to be clear to everyone that I didn’t leave my family to be with Kylie. I feel like, me and [Blac] Chyna, we broke up almost close to a year now because of decisions we made and things in our relationship that wasn’t going right. So we decided to split to raise an emotionally stable kid and that’s what we did.
In a recent interview with the same radio show, Amber alleged that Tyga had left her BFF to date the reality star, which she did not approve of. “She’s a baby, she needs to go to bed at 7 o’clock and relax,” the model ranted. “[Tyga] should be ashamed of himself, for sure. He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a 16-year-old who just turned 17.”
But, according to the “Bed Rock” singer, his relationship with the Kardashian family goes way back. “[The media] didn’t really care about me until they figured out that I lived next door to Kim [Kardashian] and Kanye [West] and all that stuff,” he explained. “But I’ve been friends with them before I even met Chyna. I was friends with Scott and her family for years. So me hanging out with them was nothing new.”
Still, he couldn’t help but compliment his younger pal. “The thing about her is, she’s a good person,” Tyga said of Kylie. “You ever meet somebody and you feel like their energy is just good? It’s just not negative. We’re not talking about what’s negative and stuff, she’s just a good person. She comes from a good upbringing. I’ve never met somebody like that, her and her family, how they deal with all the bulls— they deal with.”
Regardless of the nature of the relationship, though, eight years is a fairly large age difference when one party is under 18…
