Tyga insists he's not dating teenager Kylie Jenner after Amber Rose Twitter feud
Tyga has insisted he didn't leave his family to date Kylie Jenner.
Amber Rose appeared on US Radio show The Breakfast Club yesterday in which she slammed the 25-year-old rapper, claiming he had left his long-term girlfriend Blac Chyna for the 17-year-old reality TV star. Amber called Kylie a "baby" and stated Tyga - who has two-year-old son King with Chyna - should be "ashamed" of himself for the way he's behaved.
Tyga appeared on the same show this morning to refute the allegations.
"Yesterday I was on my Twitter and I was seeing a bunch of stuff that Amber Rose was saying... I'm not the type of person to really talk about my personal life 'cos that's just not who I am... but I feel like I'm gonna be up here and come talk to y'all because everybody want to hear what people gotta say," he said.
"I’m not dating Kylie; I just want to get that out the way.
“I want to be clear to everybody that I didn’t leave my family to be with Kylie. That’s ridiculous. Me and [Blac] Chyna, we broke up close to a year now 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.”
Tyga has lived next door to Kylie and her family, including half-sisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian, for years. He insists they have been good friends for a long time and he is even close to Kylie's mother Kris Jenner.
The star also praised Kylie's "energy", saying she is one of the least negative people he's ever met, which is why he likes spending time with her.
Tyga also touched on his feud with Drake, who he has called fake in the past. He insisted there isn't as much to the tale as people want to think, rather it's just that the two guys don't get along well.
"It’s not really a beef it’s just personal experiences that I’ve had with him, phone calls and stuff like that," he said. "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."
