Amber Rose has been THE talk of social media over the past couple of days, thanks in large part to her Twitter feud with Khloé Kardashian.
The entire thing kicked off after Khloé took offense to Amber Rose dissing the supposed sexual relationship between Kylie and rapper Tyga. One primary reason for Amber Rose to come out so strongly against the pairing? Her good friend, Blac Chyna.
Chyna also happens to be Tyga’s ex. Perhaps in an effort to show support for her friend, Amber Rose let her comments about Tyga and Kylie take on a rather ugly tone when asked if the teen is too young for the rapper.
“[Kylie] is a baby! She needs to go to bed at 7 o’clock.”
Khloé Kardashian responded by bringing attention to the fact that Amber Rose was stripping at age 15.

Amber Rose and the Kardashian sister flung plenty of mud over the Kylie/Tyga diss, but today’s comments by Tyga almost make the entire feud seem irrelevant.
While being interviewed during The Breakfast Club, Tyga stunned everyone by officially denying that he’s dating Jenner.
“I’m not dating Kylie [Jenner], I just want to get that out the way. I want to be clear to everybody that I didn’t leave my family to be with Kylie. That’s ridiculous.”
The 25-year-old rapper, whose real name is Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson, said that the reason for the misunderstanding is that “black culture” assumes that if a man hangs around a woman a lot, they must be intimate.
However, there are reasons that have nothing to do with black or white culture that could explain the denial. Like statutory rape laws.

The 17-year-old Jenner is below the age of legal consent in the state of California, where the Kardashians reside. The penalty for being intimate with a minor where the age gap is MORE than three years (as would blatantly be the case here) could be as much as four years in jail!
If Tyga really is dating Kylie Jenner, Amber Rose deciding to disapprove of the relationship while calling attention to Kylie Jenner’s status as a minor may have forced Tyga to deny any physical contact.
Although Tyga has officially denied a serious relationship, Hollywood Life claims a source told them that the two are indeed dating, and that the Amber Rose diss only served to bring them closer together.
“Kylie and Tyga don’t feel like their relationship is anyone’s business. They are rallying together along with Khloe and the rest of the family. They will not be taken down by hateful words from Amber [Rose].”
Aside from gossip sites, some point to Tyga’s own words as proof that Amber Rose is right and the pair are really together.
When Kylie Jenner posted a sexy photo of herself on Instagram, Tyga is alleged to have bragged that he “hit that every day”.
However, it’s important to note that the account in the screencap is NOT Tyga’s official Instagram.
Even so, their social media interaction continues to fuel speculation.

We may have to wait until Kylie Jenner is of age to know whether or not Amber Rose was right to call Tyga out for dating her.
Do you think Tyga would have denied dating Kylie Jenner if Amber Rose hadn’t spoken up?
