With Kylie Jenner’s eighteenth birthday just two days away, the youngest Kardashian sister has been showered with gifts from her close friends and family.
First, there was the touching reunion of her parents, Kris and Caitlyn Jenner, for her birthday dinner at Nobu. The two former spouses even managed to hug one another goodbye as they parted ways. In fact, though they are rarely all together lately, the entire Kardashian clan turned out. Kylie’s older sisters Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Kendall attended Kylie’s birthday dinner. There is no official word on whether or not Rob Kardashian attended the dinner, but Kylie’s reclusive brother may have stayed away if cameras for the family flagship reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians were on hand.
Then, Kylie received an Hermes Birkin bag from her family. The classic satchel bag has an MSRP of $10,300.
Kylie Jenner’s most controversial gift was the cherry red Mercedes G-class wagon. The gift reportedly came from Kylie’s still-not-confirmed boyfriend, Tyga. Unfortunately, the sordid history of the Mercedes SUV broke almost immediately. In early reports, Hollywood Life pointed out that the SUV’s license plates matched the Mercedes G-class wagon that Tyga’s ex-girlfriend, Blac Chyna, used to drive. It seems that, when they were a couple, Tyga gave the SUV to Blac Chyna as a gift. While it was in her possession, Blac Chyna had the SUV painted white, then re-painted pink. When the relationship ended, Tyga demanded that Blac Chyna return the pricey vehicle.
Apparently, Tyga had the car re-painted a third time after he took it back. So, it seems that Tyga took a gift back from one woman, and gave it to another. That sounds like ground for a break up, but could also re-ignite the recent feud between Blac Chyna and the Kardashian sisters.
None of it is true, at least according to sources close to Tyga. According to TMZ, the Mercedes did belong to Blac Chyna at one point, but the source claims that Tyga never gave it to Kylie. The mix up seems to stem from the fact that Kylie drove the Mercedes to her birthday dinner at Nobu, so paparazzi who caught pictures of Kylie’s arrival assumed that the car was hers. In reality, Kylie just happened to be driving her boyfriend’s car.
Except, if the Mercedes doesn’t belong to Kylie, then why is she having it re-painted yet again?
Of course the green SUV could be a different Mercedes G-class. Or Tyga could have some serious explaining to do.
