Sent it to her, but he did confirm that it was a real photo of him (he pretty much had to, given his distinctive tattoos), leaving plenty of room for doubt in his young girlfriendâ€™s mind. â€œTyga only just managed to convince Kylie that there was nothing to worry about with Mia,â€ the source reports, â€œbut heâ€™s not going to be able to weasel out of this latest disaster.â€
SHEâ€™S JUST A GIRL
Thatâ€™s because heâ€™s been caught red-handed creeping on an aspiring model based on the East Coast whoâ€™s only 14 years old a fact that even Kylie finds disgusting. â€œShe found
Rumors of a breakup first began to circulate last month, when Kylie skipped Tyga’s 26th-birthday party at The Argyle in L.A. A source says that the (temporary) split occurred because he wouldn’t let her see his phone. â€œThey already had huge trust issues,â€ the source notes, â€œso this [new incident] is only going to make things worse.â€ That is, if they stay together at all. â€œHe’s good at talking her around, but the relationship is rocky.â€
Her life has been a nonstop roller coaster. A look back at the past 12 months
HOME SWEET HOME In March, Kylie closed on a home in Calabasas, Calif., for which she paid an eye-popping $2.7 million. She set about decorating (and, um, learning how to do laundry) and moved in last summer.
MEET YOUR NEW DAD Come April, Kylie faced another tricky transition when her father, formerly known as Bruce, announced her decision to live as a woman named Caitlyn.
All these messages on his phone where he was trying to convince the girl to meet up with him the next time sheâ€™s in Los Angeles. Kylie told him it made her sick.â€ Kylie was snooping, the source explains, because she hasnâ€™t truly trusted Tyga for months. â€œEver since the Mia incident, sheâ€™s been going through his phone regularly to try to reassure herself that sheâ€™s just being paranoid. But this time, she found the exact thing she was hoping not to see: proof that Tygaâ€™s trying to hook up with another girl, one even younger than she is! Sheâ€™s grossed out and humiliated.â€
Once a Cheater.
OLD HABITS DIE HARD
Itâ€™s been reported that Tyga started dating Kylie before he and Chyna split. And her pal Amber Rose said heâ€™s also contacted Chyna recently to say he wants her back!
A LONG FLIRTATION
News of a reported three-year affair with transgender model Mia Isabella broke in July. (Officially, Mia has neither confirmed nor denied it.)
LYING IN WAIT
One of the high school freshmanâ€™s friends confirms that Tyga has been dogged in his pursuit of the minor (who does look older than her years in online photos): â€œHeâ€™s definitely trying to hook up with her, and sheâ€™s flattered. She thinks itâ€™s exciting.â€ He began by sliding into her Instagram messages, then switched to texting once heâ€™d secured her phone number. Since that time, the friend says, â€œHeâ€™s texted her every day, and heâ€™s tried to FaceTime with her too. He keeps telling her how beautiful she is and how he canâ€™t wait to hang out with her. Itâ€™s a lot of attention for a girl her age, and sheâ€™s clearly enjoying it.â€
FREEZING HIM OUT
â€œTyga talks a good game while Kylieâ€™s around,â€ the source explains, but she doesnâ€™t even want to hear his excuses as to why heâ€™s been chasing a blonde high schooler who lives on the other side of the country. â€œAs far as sheâ€™s concerned, thereâ€™s no explaining it. She feels like a fool for having believed him before, and she doesnâ€™t want him anywhere near her right now.â€
And now her family members some of whom know all about picking the wrong guy are firmly on her side. â€œKim, Kendall and Kourtney never trusted Tyga, but theyâ€™ve refrained from saying â€˜I told you so,â€™ because they donâ€™t want to make Kylie feel worse.â€ Instead, says the source, theyâ€™ve texted Tyga to tell him what they think: â€œTheyâ€™ve accused him of being a liar and told him to stay away from their little sister.â€ Finally!
SCHOOLâ€™S OUT Kylie, who was homeschooled, never spent much time in class. But her July graduation from high school meant that she no longer had anything she “hadâ€ to do. Except Snapchat!
SHEâ€™S A BUSINESS, MAN In late November, Kylie released her eponymous Lip Kit, a matte liquid lipstick (available in three different shades) that sold out almost as soon as it hit the Internet.
IN THE HOT SEAT Kylie booked more high-profile magazine shoots than she ever had before, but they werenâ€™t all hits: This December cover drew scorn for its use of a wheelchair as a prop.
