During an interview last week, Tyga tried to clear up rumors about his romantic involvement with Kylie Jenner: “I’m not dating Kylie,” he said bluntly.
But with an Instagram post on Friday (Feb. 20), T-Raww didn't hold back his feelings for the model -- which sounded like something you'd say to someone you date.
"Your beauty never goes unnoticed," he wrote, reposting a selfie she had put up earlier in the week. "One of the best/dopest person in my life."
There's been a lot of chatter about the two celebs of late, centering primarily around their age difference: Tyga is 25-years-old, while Kylie is 17. The pushback to that difference was sparked most recently by comments Amber Rose made in an interview.
“She’s a baby, she needs to go to bed at 7 o’clock and relax,” she said. “I’m over that. That’s ridiculous. [Tyga] should be ashamed of himself. That’s how I feel. For sure…He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a 16-year-old who just turned 17. Like, nah.”
When the Cali rapper responded, he admitted that he and Kylie had a relationship -- but that it was platonic.
“We really friends; I respect her mom, I know her whole family,” he said. “It’s not like I’m out here holding hands with her and kissing; I’m not doing anything disrespectful."
Also on Friday, Kanye West -- who's married to Kylie's older sister, Kim Kardashian -- gave an interview where he discussed the relationship. "I think he got in early," he said. "I think he was smart. They closer in age than a lot of relationships that I know. I knew Tyga was smart."
