14-Year-Old Girl Slams OK! Magazine For Misrepresenting Her In Tyga Texting Scandal
Molly O’Malia, the 14-year-old girl who OK! claimed Tyga was “cheating” with behind Kylie Jenner’s back, slammed the tabloid on Monday for misrepresenting her and getting many facts about the story wrong.
Tyga met O’Malia through social media, and soon began texting the underage model. According to OK!, the high school freshman was “flattered” by the rapper’s attention, allegedly finding it “exciting.” But in a press conference on Monday, attorney Gloria Allred sat beside O’Malia to help tell her side of the story. O’Malia explained that she believed Tyga was getting in contact with her about her music career, but became uncomfortable when he allegedly texted her incessantly and asked her to FaceTime.
The teen also said that OK! was responsible for revealing her identity, despite its attempts to conceal it. “Even though OK! magazine pixelated my face and did not use my name, a lot of people could tell it was me,” she said. Allred backed up her client, saying that the magazine’s image of the girl was poorly pixelated.
Allred then requested an apology from the tabloid for suggesting that O’Malia was “excited” to be caught up in “what appears to be a sex scandal.” The lawyer added, “[Molly] has nothing to be ashamed of. Maybe some other people do.”
