Kylie Jenner and Tyga shared a cozy dinner together at a Japanese restaurant in Hollywood on Monday, but they still won’t officially confirm they are dating. The pair sat close together on the same side of the table during dinner at Kabuki. To outside observers, the scene looked romantic, but Tyga said he is just a close family friend.
A sizable age difference could be one of the reasons that the older rapper is loath to admit that he is more than just a friend of the family. Kylie Jenner is just 17-years-old, and Tyga turns 25 next month. Even though an unnamed source reportedly told TMZ that he admits to dating Kylie in private, Tyga has denied the claim publicly.
“One Tyga source told us [TMZ]… if we even insinuate they are having physical contact he will deny he’s dating Kylie… even though the source says Tyga privately says he’s dating her.”
MediaTakeOut managed to secure an exclusive pic of Kylie Jenner and Tyga riding on an escalator with no other friends or family in sight. That makes another one-on-one liaison sure to keep the rumors swirling. Calling the couple “lovebirds,” MTO noted that the pair was in the company of a sole security guard during their outing, which was specifically labelled a “date” by the gossip site.
As rumors about a romantic alliance between Kylie Jenner and Tyga heated up, the rapper’s former fiancée Blac Chyna posted increasingly sexy snaps of herself online. It was a move that some people said was a reflection of Blac Chyna’s jealousy over the alleged romance. Tyga and Blac Chyna share one child, a son named King Cairo Stevenson, who was born on October 16, 2012. Tyga’s full real name is Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson.
If Kylie Jenner is dating Tyga, the relationship could be a nice distraction from the pain of her parents’ divorce. One day after Kris and Bruce Jenner each filed for divorce, Kylie posted a sad and thoughtful poem by R. M. Drake that spoke of emptiness and loss. Many people interpreted her choice of verses as a commentary on the state of her parents’ marriage, reported The Inquisitr.
Sister Kendall Jenner responded to news of her parents making their split official by posting a throwback pic of Bruce and Kris Jenner online, according to a previous report by The Inquisitr.
