Tyga: “It Doesn’t Matter What The World Thinks” About Me and Kylie Jenner (VIDEO)
Tyga has given his most extensive comments yet on his friendship/relationship with Kylie Jenner, speaking to 92.3 AMP Radio on Monday. Watch his interview alongside pal Chris Brown in the video below.
The rapper and the 17-year-old reality TV star have been the subject of frenzied speculation in recent weeks, especially after last Friday. That was the day Tyga posted an Instagram picture of Jenner with the caption, “Your beauty never goes unnoticed. One of the best/dopest person (sic) in my life.” That was also the day when Kanye West, during his own radio interview, let slip that Tyga and Jenner were “in love.”
In a Hot 97 sit-down with Brown last week, Tyga declared it was “nobody’s business” if he “love[d]” Jenner. On Monday, Tyga was asked yet again to clarify where he and Jenner stand, and he opened up a bit more.
“Whether if I tell the world that I love her or I don’t, it’s gonna be me to dictate that, and how I want to keep my friendship and relationship with her,” said Tyga. “I feel like it doesn’t matter what the world thinks. If you’re around somebody, and you love being around that person, that’s all that matters. I don’t feel like what anybody could say would change that… how I feel for her as a person… She’s just a good person, she’s got great energy.”
He added, “We’ve got a group of friends, we’ve been hanging out for the longest [time]… I’ve been knowing her and her family for six, seven years, so it’s all love there, and we’re going to continue to grow.” The co-host then asked for a clarification: “Are you in love with her?”
“I love her as a person,” answered Tyga. The host persisted, “But not romantically speaking?” Tyga explained, “I mean, I don’t think it really matters. If you love being around somebody, that’s all that matters, you know?” The hosts persisted, explaining that fans are very curious about the nature of the friendship. “Sometimes you gotta just let that artist live their own personal life sometimes, and you gotta respect that as a fan and a spectator of what we do,” said Tyga.
