As the late great singer Aaliyah once sang, “Age ain’t nothing but a number.” And that’s exactly how rapper Tyga feels about his highly publicized relationship with Kylie Jenner, who is eight years younger than him.
Social media has made countless memes about the age difference, but the “Rack City” rapper is clearly unbothered by it.
During an interview with San Francisco radio station 106 KMEL, Tyga opened up about how he deals with the backlash.
“I don’t know. It’s hard to talk about that because people are gonna bash. I didn’t understand it though because I’m like, ‘This person is a really good person.’”
He continues, “Me being older than her, I’ve been through a lot more things so I can help her more with it even though she’s been more in tabloid media limelight than I have been. But I can see that because I know what type of person she is. I know what she deals with.”
The Cali rapper then spoke on his ex-fiancée Blac Chyna supposedly hating on his relationship
“I just feel like the grass is always greener on the other side to people, you feel me. It’s like worry about your own grass and yours will be just as green. I’m keeping it all the way one hundred.”
Last week, Kylie and her rapper beau addressed pregnancy rumors on her app.
“Are you pregnant?” Tyga asked the youngest Jenner. “I think we need to address that rumor because I feel like everybody thinks you’re pregnant and there’s a new story every day about you being pregnant and being married and all this crazy stuff so you need to talk about those type of things.”
“I’m not pregnant and I’m not married, ’cause you’re slacking …I’m just kidding,” she joked. “Because I’m a f**king infant child, and I don’t want to be married or have a baby right now!”
“No, you’re a young woman, and you’re very focused on a lot of things,” Tyga replied.
Guess we’ll have to see how this will all play out for Kyga in 2016!
