Tyga, whose real name is Michael Ray Stevenson, posted a cryptic message on Instagram amidst an ongoing scandal that revolves around him messaging an underage girl, Us Weekly reports.
“They don’t want you to win,” Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend, 26, wrote under an Instagram picture of himself scowling and surrounded by high-end cars.
This post comes a day after 14-year-old Molly O’Malia and her attorney, Gloria Allred, held a press comference and claimed that the “Rack City” rapper sent the teen “uncomfortable” messages over Instagram.
“I thought that it could possibly be about my music,” O’Malia said. “But he did not mention that in his initial communication with me,” O’Malia said at the press conference. She says that her messages with Tyga became “uncomfortable” when Tyga attempted to start up a FaceTime conversation with her.

“He asked me to FaceTime three times, but I didn’t do it,” she added. “Because of my discomfort with why he wanted to communicate with me I quickly stopped responding to him. It’s crazy how so much can come out of nothing.”
Molly O’Malia is an aspiring singer and model. She denies that she ever hooked up with the rapper, contrary to what OK Magazine reported in a previous news story, TheHeavy.com reports.

O’Malia said that she’s not sure why the magazine printed that erroneous story about her and Tyga. She also said that she’s not sure how they got a hold of Tyga’s messages to her.
“I never sent the communications of Tyga and me to OK Magazine and I don’t know how they obtained them. I would never have allowed OK Magazine or any other magazine to use them. It is also upsetting to me that OK Magazine never contacted my mom or me to check the facts about what they were posting was true. I’m speaking out today because I don’t want what happened to me to happen to any other young girl.”
As Us Weekly reports, O’Malia and her attorney decided to hold the press conference because she was being bullied on social media after she was blamed for temporarily splitting up Tyga and Kylie Jenner.
For his part, Tyga has distanced himself from the situation. However, his manager, Anthony Martini, told TMZ this week that Tyga did reach out Molly O’Malia but their interaction was music related. He says that Tyga wanted to FaceTime Molly because he wanted to hear her sing. Molly O’Malia currently has over 50,000 followers on Instagram but she has since made her account private.
Many are doubting Tyga’s claims that his intentions for Molly O’Malia were innocent. This is mostly due to the fact that there’s a wealth of evidence fueling speculation that he was dating Kylie when she was 17 and he was 25. As the Daily Beast notes, that counts as statutory rape in the state of California, where Tyga and Kylie reside. Both Kylie and Tyga only went “public” about their relationship when Kylie turned 18.
Kanye West, the husband of Kylie’s older sister, Kim Kardashian West, was pretty flippant about the relationship when he was about it on an episode of The Breakfast Club.
“I think he got in early. I think he was smart,” West said. He also bashed his ex, Amber Rose, during that interview for criticizing the relationship between Kylie Jenner and Tyga.
As of this writing Kylie Jenner has not commented on the Molly O’Malia press conference.
