It’s that time of year again!! It felt like there hadn’t been much drama with Kylie Jenner and Tyga lately, which means it was the perfect time for them to break up again. Right on schedule (like, an E! production schedule perhaps?), there’s trouble in paradise. So what happened? Let’s unpack the drama.
It’s a little unclear who initiated the newest breakup, but there are competing theories. Here’s why it might be Kylie’s choice: mysterious “sources” have said that Kylie felt like she was being taken advantage of. No shit? Tyga has been living at her mansion and she’s been buying him luxury cars and essentially funding his life. That’s what happens when your claim to fame is that you released one shitty song in 2012. Like I know there are people out there who still say “rack, rack city bitch” but it’s not like he’s earning royalties off of that. Sorry Kylie, but you set yourself up for this.
Kylie was also apparently annoyed that Tyga hadn’t put a ring on it yet, which would maybe be a discussion worth having except for the fact that she’s STILL ONLY 19. Seriously, how is this girl still in her teens? Like we don’t have the best concept of time, but it feels (and looks) like Kylie should be approximately 40 years old by now. At this rate she’s going to be 99% plastic by the time she turns 30, so we really can’t wait to see what that looks like.
But some people are also saying it might have been Tyga’s call to break off the relationship. Apparently he doesn’t like how he’s been portrayed on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which honestly would be surprising given that the show is like, the only reason he’s not living in a box. Considering Tyga is the lowest person on the Kardashian totem pole, he should be glad he gets mentioned at all. Especially with Kanye in the picture, Tyga isn’t exactly the rapper everyone’s dying to see.
So now the lovebirds are separated, and it really seems like it could go either way. Like, we’re firmly of the opinion that Kylie is way too young/hot/rich to hang around with some guy who doesn’t treat her well or even have his own income, but they clearly have some connection that none of us understand, so who knows? Kylie was spotted holding hands with Travis Scott at Coachella, so she may have already moved on to a new rapper who actually makes good music.
For now, we’ll be missing Kylie’s Snap stories of her making comfort food for Tyga, but we still have the Snap stories of her doing lipstick swatches on her forearm, thank god.
