Tyga knocked the rumors that he is dating the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner crew during his appearance on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club on Monday.
The rapper has faced talked for the past several months that he and Kylie Jenner are dating. But while chatting with the show’s hosts on Feb. 16, Tyga attempted to explain his relationship with the reality TV star.
Talk of Jenner and Tyga’s relationship began to grow in the fall after his split from his longtime girlfriend Blac Chyna. Jenner has since been spotted driving the rapper’s car, wearing clothing items that appear to be his and they’ve even posted a few questionable snaps together on Instagram. The pair was also seen Christmas shopping together back in December, and they've been photographed on several late-night outings as well.
“No, I’m not dating Kylie. I wanna be clear to everybody, I didn’t leave my family to be with Kylie. That’s ridiculous,” Tyga told The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee, Charlemagne and DJ Envy.
Their rumored love connection even sparked a feud between Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose and the rapper’s sister-in-law Khloe Kardashian on Monday. During her own interview on The Breakfast Club, Rose called out Tyga’s relationship with Jenner, saying the the rapper ditched her good friend Chyna for the teen. “That’s ridiculous. He Tyga should be ashamed of himself. That’s how I feel. For sure. He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a 16-year-old who just turned 17," Rose said.
Her comments then launched a Twitter argument between the model and Jenner's older sister. Khloe never acknowledged if her sister is or isn’t actually dating Tyga during the war of words. And during his interview on Monday, Tyga pushed blame on people misreading his relationship with the teen, who he gushed about a few times during the chat. “It’s because what people make it seem and TMZ, you gotta think, 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,” Tyga said. “But I been friends with them before I even met Blac Chyna. I was friends with Scott Disick her family for years, so me hanging out with them was nothing new. People just want to make a story out of it.”
Response to the interview was mixed. Many felt he clearly explained his friendship with Jenner while others accused him of attempting to hide the truth about their relationship. Either way, Tyga’s interview will likely fuel even more questions about the pair in the days to come! After listening to his interview, do you still think Tyga and Kylie are dating?
