This Tyga is roaring back. After Amber Rose told The Breakfast Club on Feb. 16 that Tyga "should be ashamed of himself" for dating 17-year-old Kylie Jenner, the "Rack City" rapper hit back the following morning with new claims of his own.
"I’m not dating Kylie, I just want to get that out the way," Tyga said Tuesday, Feb. 17, on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club. "I want to be clear to everybody that I didn’t leave my family to be with Kylie. That’s ridiculous." (As Us Weekly confirmed last August, the rapper and his model girlfriend had split after more than two years together.)
According to T-Raww, his breakup from Kim Kardashian's pal Blac Chyna — also the mother of his 2-year-old son King Cairo — was a long time coming. "Me and Chyna, we broke up close to a year now," he explained. "And because of the decision we made, and things in our relationship that wasn’t going right, so we decided to split to raise an emotionally stable kid. That’s what we did and now we have a great relationship."
Wiz Khalifa's estranged wife — who famously dated Kanye West from 2008 to 2010 — continued her heated exchange with Khloe into Tuesday, dredging up an old, much-debunked tabloid tale that Khloe is actually the daughter of O.J. Simpson.
While denying that Kylie was his girlfriend, Tyga, 25, addressed their overlap in circles on Tuesday. "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 rapper told The Breakfast Club. "But I been friends with them before I even met 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."
The reason why the two are always together is simple, according to Tyga, who called Kylie a "beautiful young woman," with a "maturity and mentality [that] is different than a lot of people."
While Rose's feud with the Kardashians continues, Tyga addressed a rather infamous one of his own with fellow superstar rapper Drake. "First of all, we live in the same [neighborhood]," Tyga said of their gated community in Calabasas, Calif., which also includes Kris Jenner's home. "He knows exactly where my house is, I know exactly where his house is. We live next to each other. My thing is, if it’s real, it’s real. If it’s not, it’s not… 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."
He also addressed his bad history with Nicki Minaj. "Me and Nicki had got into it about something stupid, it was over a song, but that’s what brothers and sisters do," Tyga reflected. "So, I don’t have anything against Nicki. I f— with her 100 percent."
