Tyga said his faith helps when people criticise him for having a romantic relationship with a teenager (that started when she was a minor).
Tyga gave an interview with San Francisco radio station 106 KMEL. He told DJ Shay Diddy about the relationship with Kylie Jenner.
According to Kylie’s Instagram the flirtation began when she was 14 (he was 22).
Here is an Instagram photo taken at Kendall Jenner’s sweet 16 birthday party. Kylie was 14. The caption from 52 months (over four years ago) is Tyga’s name and a heart.
They started dating right after she turned 17 (he was 25). They confirmed their relationship after she turned 18. He just turned 26.
Tyga wrote a song about the statutory rape of Kylie Jenner called “Stimulated” where he admitted to having sex with a minor. The lyrics read “They say she young and I should have waited; But she a big girl, dog, when she stimulated.”
This week Tyga said any criticism “[is] not affecting my real life.”
Tyga appeared to confirm he is an ephebophile in his song(s). But now he says “It’s kind of hard to really talk about that because people are gonna bash – I didn’t understand it though ’cause I’m like, ‘This [Kylie] person is a really good person’… And it’s almost like, the devil keeps trying to tell me something to not follow God and not just let God do what he wanna do.
“So I don’t really know how to speak on that because it’s just something that I have to deal with,” he added. “A lot of things in life, you just gotta deal with it as it come, that’s what I learned.”
“I just keep my faith strong,” said Tyga.
Why is he dating a teenager? “Me being older than [Jenner], I’ve been through a lot more things so I can help her more with it, even though she’s been more in the tabloid media limelight than I have been,” Tyga explained.
