Kanye West appears to have admitted that sister-in-law Kylie Jenner, 17, is dating mutual friend Tyga, 25.
Kanye’s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose called the relationship disgusting on 105.1’s The Breakfast Club. Tyga went on the same radio show and denied hooking up with Kylie (despite allegedly admitting to having sex with Kylie “every day”). However, Kanye supports the alleged romance on the same show, calling it “smart.”
Co-host Charlamagne asks “With Tyga… you’re executive producing his album… do you feel like his relationship with your sister-in-law (Kylie, 17), is inappropriate?” Kanye is shown in the video below at 29:00 to respond “I think that… I think he got in early, I think he was smart.” Kanye is referring to Kylie’s young age.
Charlemagne adds, Kanye’s friend “Russell Simmons was 35 when he met Kimora [Lee]; she was 17.” Kanye adds, “[Tyga and Kylie] are closer in age than a lot of relationships that I know… I knew Tyga was smart, you know!”
Charlemagne also noted that Tyga, in person, denied any inappropriate relationship. Kanye laughed and quickly added that he can’t comment on anyone’s relationship.
UPDATE: Fans noted a not-very-subtle edit at about 29:00 in the video. TMZ has leaked the audio. The Breakfast Club redacted part of the interview where Kanye said: “I think they’re in love. You can’t tell nobody, you know.”
In the same interview, Kanye says of Amber Rose: “She’s just soaking in the moment. If Kim had dated me when I wanted, there would be no Amber Rose… It’s very hard for a woman to want to be with someone that’s with Amber Rose…I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim.”
And he says Beyonce and Jay Z admire Kim: “Naw they love each other, they respect each other. When Beyoncé’s working on an album, she has a picture of Kim on the wall” because she represents powerful women, and Kim is always playing Beyoncé’s song 7/11.”
