Rapper Tyga appeared to confirm his rumoured relationship with 17-year-old Kylie Jenner with an Instagram posting.
The 25-year-old posted a picture of the teenage reality star with the caption: ‘Certain things catch your eye, but only few capture the heart.’
The pair have long been linked romantically but until his cryptic social media posting on Friday he had roundly denied the allegations.
Fans of the rapper appeared to be none-too-pleased by the post as several of his followers took to Instagram to voice their opinions.
One fan with the username @stephben07, made light of how Kylie is still short of the 18-year-old age of consent in California as they wrote: ‘how has no one called the cops yet?’
Instagram user @hotgyalnana made light of Tyga’s recent denial over the rumoured relationship with the comment: ‘what the!! He needs to stop contradicting himself.’
Tyga insists he’s NOT dating Kylie Jenner despite rumors
The teenager and youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters left the arena closely following the Rack City rapper while he walked alongside his entourage.
Rumours have been circulating about an alleged relationship since the summer of last year as they were even pictured hanging out while serving food during a charitable Thanksgiving event in LA back in November.
As recently as last month the rapper – born Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson – insisted he was not dating the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star as he tried to make the point clear during a radio interview with The Breakfast Club on February 17.
‘No, I’m not dating Kylie. I wanna be clear to everybody, I didn’t leave my family to be with Kylie. That’s ridiculous,’ the Compton born singer said.
The Make It Nasty singer added, ‘Me and [ex Blac] Chyna, we broke up almost close to a year [ago] now, because of the decision we made, and things in our relationship that were not going right, [we] decided to split to raise an emotionally stable kid.’
‘But I’ve been friends with them before I even met [Blac] Chyna. 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 Don’t Hate Tha Playa singer commented that Kylie is a ‘beautiful young woman’ whose ‘maturity and mentality is different than a lot of people.’
Things seem to be changing pretty quickly for the rapper as he was engaged to 26-year-old model Chyna – the mother of his child – until fairly recently.
In October 2012, they welcomed a son, King Cairo. The family set up house in a $6.5m mansion in Calabasas, which is not far from where Kylie grew up in Hidden Hills.
In December 2012, Chyna – who is good friends with Kim Kardashian – confirmed they were engaged.
They split in August 2014, about the same time he reportedly started spending time with Kylie.
