“I think at 16 I was probably fucking someone that was in their 20s, for sure. I wouldn’t say I was even dating, probably just sleeping with them. But again, Kylie is not a normal 17-year-old. You’re not gonna say, “Hey, so what are you doing this weekend?” and have her say, “Having a slumber party at my girlfriend’s,” or “Going to prom.” That’s not what Kylie does. Kylie is taking business meetings and bought her first house, or she’s going on a private plane with Karl Lagerfeld to take a meeting. That’s not even what people do in their 30s. It’s a rare circumstance, so let’s treat this as a special case.”

Kylie, who just graduated from high school, and Tyga's relationship has often been the subject of controversy due to the age difference between them.

Despite the fact that the pair often attend public events together and allude to a romance on their Instagram pages, this is the first time anyone close to the duo has confirmed a relationship.

It is believed that they have been together for over a year, as they first started making appearances together as far back as June 2014.
