This momager is looking out for her little girl. Kris Jenner is concerned about youngest daughter Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend, Tyga, and his legal issues — including a recent warrant for his arrest — a source exclusively tells Us Weekly.

"Kris Jenner is worried about Tyga’s warrant and legal problems,” the insider tells Us. “It’s because Kylie spends 24/7 with Tyga and she would be associated with that arrest, should he be arrested as a result of this warrant."

As previously reported, a judge issued a warrant for the 26-year-old “Rack City” rapper’s arrest on Tuesday, August 9, after he failed to show up for a court-ordered deposition, a Los Angeles public information officer confirmed to Us.

TMZ reports that Tyga, who has been dating Kylie off and on since August 2014, was scheduled to appear in court to be grilled by his former landlord, who filed a $480,000 judgment against the Kingin’ With Tyga star after he fell way behind in rent on his Malibu home.

According to the site, the dad of King Cairo, 3 — who he shares with ex-fiancée Blac Chyna — could end up in jail. Additionally, TMZ reports that Tyga’s recent purchase of a $200,000 black Maybach for his girlfriend’s 19th birthday has been deemed “a fraudulent transfer of assets that should go to satisfy the judgment” by his landlord’s legal team.

Despite Kris’ anxiety over Kylie’s association with Tyga and his potential stint in the slammer, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch, 60, praised the teen Lip Kit queen when she officially turned the big 1-9 on Wednesday, August 10.

“I can't believe my baby girl is 19 today!!!! @kyliejenner I've watched you grow into the most loving, kind-hearted, funny, motivated, beautiful young woman and I couldn't be prouder of you!!” the proud mom wrote alongside a touching Instagram collage featuring photos of the makeup maven in her younger years. “There are so many amazing adventures ahead for you, my sweet girl, this is just the beginning!!!”
