One of the most fraught issues in the Kardashian universe over the past year is the alleged relationship between “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kylie Jenner, 17, and rapper Tyga, 25.
The issue blew up earlier this year when model/rapper Amber Rose publicly criticized Tyga for leaving his ex and young son “for a 16-year-old who just turned 17.” (Kylie turns 18 in August.) Through the storm of controversy that followed, Tyga denied that he was dating Kylie.
But the denial became questionable after this post on Tyga’s Instagram account; plus, the two started showing up increasingly in pictures.
Kanye West, married to Kylie’s sister Kim Kardashian, told a radio station that Tyga “got in early” and that he and Kylie are in love, but then backtracked saying, “I can’t speak on another man’s relationship.” However, Khloe Kardashian apparently confirmed the pair’s relationship in an extensive interview with Complex released on Monday.
Khloe talked about how she’s very protective of her younger sister, particularly when she’s slammed on the Internet for things like getting lip injections at such a young age.“Kylie might be 17, but from what Kylie has been through and the life she lives, she’s not a normal 17-year-old,” Khloe said.
