Tyga and Kylie Jenner are no longer trying to hide the fact that they enjoy spending time together, but Tyga continues to play coy whenever he’s asked about the nature of his relationship with the reality show star.
Tyga recently chatted to ET Online at the launch of his new line of L.A. Gear sneakers, and it wasn’t long before Kylie Jenner’s name came up. The rapper revealed that he has shown his shiny new kicks to Kylie, and she’s a fan of the metallic “Liquid Gold” shoes. It seems like Tyga is getting more comfortable with talking about Kylie Jenner, but he still won’t reveal whether he’s dating the teen model.
“We’re friends and that’s all I really want to talk about right now,” he told ET Online.
Tyga is obviously doing his best to dodge the d-word, but, as the Inquisitr previously reported, he and Kylie Jenner definitely looked like they were on a date when they were photographed catching Fifty Shades of Grey together.
During his ET Online interview, Tyga did flatly deny a different rumor — he said that he and Kylie are not working on a song with Iggy Azalea. He also shared his thoughts about Kylie’s father being used as a punch line during Justin Bieber’s recent Comedy Central Roast. Bruce Jenner’s name came up a few times during the roast, most likely because his daughter, Kendall, was in the audience at the event.
“I think it’s Comedy Central and it’s fun, it’s all jokes,” Tyga said.
According to Buzzfeed, many viewers felt that the jokes about Bruce Jenner were distasteful and transphobic. Kevin Hart referenced Bruce while poking fun at the rumors that Justin Bieber is dating Kendall Jenner.
“There were rumors that Justin [was] dealing with Kendall Jenner and that shocked me… I was like, ‘You gonna deal with a Jenner, I thought it would be Bruce.’ That’s what I thought.”
Two other jokes about Bruce Jenner’s male-to-female transition didn’t air on Comedy Central, including Jeff Ross’ quip that the “only man in [that] family is Khloe Kardashian.”
There’s no word on how Kylie Jenner feels about the jokes about her family or Tyga’s flippant response to them. The rapper might not have a problem with other people trashing Kylie’s family members, but, based on his proclamation of love for Kylie, it’s hard to imagine him responding well to anyone trashing the 17-year-old.
Fielding questions about Kylie Jenner wasn’t Tyga’s only uncomfortable moment at his L.A. Gear Sneakers at Sheikh Shoes in Hollywood. According to TMZ, a very crafty process server waited in line for two and a half hours, bought two pairs of sneakers, and asked Tyga to autograph them before serving the rapper with a summons to appear in court. All the process server would say about the papers is that Tyga owes someone money. You can watch his patience pay off in the video below. To Tyga’s credit, he takes it all in stride and even poses for a photo with the man after being served.
Do you think Tyga and Kylie Jenner are dating, and do you think Tyga should have spoken out against the Bruce Jenner jokes?
