Though Kylie Jenner and her boyfriend Tyga have gone public with their relationship following her 18th birthday in August, the reality star maintains she still wants to keep certain aspects of their life private.

“I don’t think I will ever be super-public about my relationships,” Jenner, 18, told Elle Canada in her December issue cover shoot.

As far as how much more open she and her rapper beau, 25, have been in recent months, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star said “that has been pretty organic” – but that she still keeps some things to herself.

“I do think that if you let people in too deep, it gets hard – your fans get too invested, and then they know when you break up and make up,” she said. “I don’t want people to know every time we fight or break up, so I’d rather keep some things private.”

Jenner added that while she’s “okay with sharing” with her fans and does so on a daily basis on her app (which she’s “super-involved” with), she’s always valued discretion.

“When I first started on [KUWTK], I didn’t want anyone to know who my friends were and you never saw any of them onscreen with me,” Jenner said. “I always wanted to keep my family life on the show, and when it came to me hanging out with my friends and doing, you know, teenage stuff, I wanted to keep that private – and I still do.”

Jenner also opened up to the magazine about her relationship with her dad Caitlyn Jenner, 66, and how the two have grown even closer since her transition.

“I just find that because everything is open and honest now, we actually spend a lot more time together,” she said. “It was really hard for me in the beginning, but now it’s much easier. It’s ‘she’ now, but it was ‘he’ who always had this secret. Now she’s just free and way happier, and it makes me feel more comfortable. It’s cool. She’s the same person – she just looks different.”
