“I was friends with Scott [Disick], her family for years, so me hanging out with them was nothing new. People just want to make a story out of it.” The rapper then went on to describe Kylie as a 'beautiful young woman' whose 'maturity and mentality is different than a lot of people.’
Last month Khloe Kardashian got in a heated Twitter argument with model Amber Rose after she commented on the rumours about Kylie and Tyga. Rose described Kylie as "baby" who "needs to go to bed at seven o'clock" during an interview on Power 105.1, causing Kardashian to later tell her on twitter "please don't worry about my sister who has a career & her shit together at ONLY 17 people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.”
