I’ve been debating how I wanted to discuss ALL the drama that’s happened this week via social media and what’s come up in recent interviews concerning the Kardashian Krew (including Ye and Tyga) and Amber Rose. So here’s my take on the drama and where it all stems from, the 8 year age difference between Tyga and Kylie Jenner.
So the drama really started way back when Tyga dumped his baby mother/fiance Blac Chyna (Splittsville) and was rumored to be with Kylie Jenner, the then 16 year old daughter of Bruce and Kris Jenner. Tyga and Blac Chyna seemed to be fine, according to Instagram pics, as the two were constantly hanging out with Ye and Kim and even attended their wedding. Kylie is now 17 (not 18 until August) and it’s clear that something is going on between her and Tyga although he’s horribly denied it and says they’re just “friends.” I’ll get to that in a second.
Amber Rose, ex-girlfriend to Kanye West and ex-wife to Wiz Khalifa, stated in an interview with Power 105.1’s Breakfast Club her thoughts on the Tyga/Kylie “friendship” and clearly she’s not happy he ditched her friend for a teenager.
She’s a baby, she needs to go to bed at 7 o’clock and relax. That’s ridiculous. Her should be ashamed of himself. That’s how I feel. For sure. He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a 16-year-old who just turned 17.
I get why some might think it wasn’t her place, but hell she was asked a question and made a valid point. When is it ever ok for a 25 year old man to be with a minor? It’s not like he’s pursuing Kendall, who is 19, he’s pursuing a 17 year old and he’s sticking to the story of them being “friends.” I use that term loosely because it’s clear that there’s something more there. While she looks nothing like a 17 year old, there’s no denying the date on her birth certificate which by law makes Tyga a creep whether they’re sexually involved or not.
The drama didn’t stop there, Khloe Kardashian, the spokeswoman for the family, took to Twitter in an attempt to slander Amber, but Amber fired back low and fast. Here’s a snippet (click pic for better view):
I mean as a big sister I completely understand why Khloe would come to her baby sisters defense. Out of all of them, Khloe is the outspoken one and I can’t imagine Kylie getting confrontational with a grown woman, so of course big sis would step in. On that same note as a big sister Khloe needs to continue to supervise this “friendship” between Kylie and Tyga if he’s going to continue to lurk around. Once she turns 18 it’s fair game, but here and right now, it’s wrong.
Tyga did an interview with the same radio show and briefly discussed his “thing” with Kylie:
I’m not dating Kylie. I just want to get that out the way.
Just when it looked like everything had blown over and the twitter beef between Amber and Khloe was done, Kanye came in as big brother on the Breakfast Club this past Friday (2/20) and responded to Amber’s tirade.
If Kim had dated me when I first wanted to be with her, there wouldn’t be an Amber Rose, you know what I’m saying. I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim.
There’s no other way to put it that he called her a dirty chick. He also gave his thoughts on his sister-in-law’s “friendship” with Tyga.
They are closer in age than a lot of relationships I know, so is it really a big deal.
Now this is completely going past what Amber had said about Kylie and it’s getting more personal and below the belt. Amber would not just sit back and ignore the comments. She tweeted:
Wait 30 showers? But Kim let Ray J nut on her… Never mind.
Well, Kim is not confrontational either, but she was posted up on Instagram a ski trip with her sisters and beautiful daughter clearly unbothered. I doubt Amber Rose is done with throwing shots, only time will tell if she will really “humiliate” Ye & reveal secrets from their relationship.
Back to the real issue.It’s clear just how loyal the family is to each other and everyone connected to them are loyal as well. It still doesn’t sit right with me that Kris Jenner is letting her daughter go around town with a 25 year old. As a big sister to two younger sisters, I be damned if they’re riding around town or even thinking of going out the country with a grown ass man.
Well after that Kanye interview Tyga did damage control and sorta kinda admitted that he and Kyie are more than “friends” in an interview with Hot 97.
If I love her, and I love her as a person, ain’t nobody else gotta deal with that. That’s real. The more your friendship grow, it keeps growing. It’s all about a friendship.
He even took to Instagram and posted a picture of her (which was very nice) and captioned:
Your beauty never goes unnoticed. One of the best/dopest person in my life.
Although Tyga is becoming more open about whatever it is they have, I just really want to hear what Kris Jenner has to say about this. That’s what’s really not sitting right. Fame should never ever take the place of parenting and Kris Jenner has raised six beautiful children, but she is really nowhere to be found in this media outrage. Tyga is 8 years older than Kylie and yes there are way larger age gaps in Hollywood, but that does not justify nor excuse this one. Also with those age gaps, the ladies, are at least 18 and over. It’s clear Hollywood has no age boundaries. Had this been any other man he very well could’ve been locked up.
On one hand it’s great that her sisters are around to protect and defend her, but come on if your mom isn’t going to do anything maybe, just maybe they could put the pause button on this. Then again, the more you drive a teenager away the quicker they’ll dive in head first. Regardless it’s not right and these two will be way more public come Kylie’s 18th birthday in August.
In the meantime I’ll sit back and watch it all unfold. Too bad it’s unfolding on social media and it’s not a private matter. Oh, the celebrity life.
