Tyga Confirms Relationship with Kylie Jenner in Sweet Instagram Post
"Certain things capture your eye, but only few capture the heart" the rapper captioned a photo of the reality star
Looks like things aren’t really platonic after all.
“Certain things capture your eye, but only few capture the heart,” he captioned a pretty photo of the 17-year-old reality star.
The declaration of love follows a bumpy period for the budding couple, after their closeness sparked a Twitter feud between Kylie’s big sister Khloé Kardashian and Amber Rose – who dated Kim Kardashian West‘s husband, Kanye West – after Rose criticized the 25-year-old rapper for dating the underage Jenner on a radio show.
“Kylie’s a baby,” Rose told Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club. “She needs to go to bed at 7 o’clock and relax. It’s ridiculous. Tyga should be ashamed of himself. That’s how I feel, for sure. He has a beautiful woman and a baby that he left for a 16-year-old who just turned 17.” (Tyga was previously dating Blac Chyna, a friend of Rose’s and Kim’s former pal.)
Khloé fired off several Tweets after the interview, including this one: “3 sides to EVERY story. His, hers and the truth. I’m not passing judgment but I wish others would do the same until they have FACTS.”
Tyga denied a relationship with Kylie as recently as last month, telling Power 105.1 a few days after Amber Rose’s interview that they aren’t an item.
“I’m not dating Kylie,” he said. “I just want to get that out of the way. I want to be clear to everybody that I didn’t leave my family to be with Kylie.”
However, the duo were spotted on a low-key movie date in Calabasas, California, late last month, dressing casually and avoiding being photographed together.
PEOPLE has confirmed that Jenner and Tyga are indeed a couple.
