If you missed it, Kylie Jenner’s rumored relationship with Tyga sparked a Twitter fight of epic proportions on Monday between Khloe Kardashian and Amber Rose. In an interview last week, Rose expressed disapproval over the 25-year-old rapper allegedly leaving his former fiancee and mother of his two-year-old son, Blac Chyna, for 17-year-old Jenner.
On Tuesday, Tyga adamantly denied to Power 105’s The Breakfast Club that he’s in a relationship with the teenaged reality star.
“I’m not dating Kylie. I just want to get that out [of] the way,” he told the show’s hosts. “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 now, because of the decision we made, and things in our relationship that weren’t going right, [we] decided to split to raise an emotionally stable kid.”
Tyga went on to say that TMZ and the tabloids didn’t even care about him until they figured out he lived next door to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, adding that he was friends with the whole family for years before he started dating Blac Chyna.
“People just want to make a story out of it,” he said.
It’s not the first time the rapper has denied dating Jenner. Back in October, he told Vibe magazine pretty much the same thing, and he’s not the only person to deny the alleged relationship either. Around the same time, Kylie’s mother, Kris Jenner, gave Ryan Seacrest a similar soundbite about everyone just being friends.
“Kylie isn’t dating anybody. This whole little group of kids who have been around forever, and I call them kids because, relatively speaking, they kind of all travel as a pack and they enjoy each other’s company,” she said. “We all live in the same neighborhood. [Tyga] used to live across the street for a long time, and now he lives next door to Khloe.”
