Before consenting to a new interview with DuJour, Tyga and his publicist insisted that all discussion of his "personal life" be, well, not discussed. No questions, no comment! The problem is though, as DuJour's writers and The Fug Girls make clear, that (maybe) doesn't leave a lot on the table for a meaty profile.
Except then the stars align just perfectly, offering up a borderline-adulterous scene that, well, says it all without there even needing to be a "So what's the deal with Kylie?" question. Upon arriving at Tyga's place for the interview, this happens: "a young, bleary-eyed Kylie Jenner lookalike is huddled outside the gate, shivering in the light drizzle... The girl's hair is matted and slept-on, the extension tape visible from the back, and she taps her toe nervously while awaiting her ride. She is clearly wearing last night's shorts."
It does not take much to read between the lines here—the piece later identifies Tyga's sleepover friend as Val Mercado, the model/singer he's been spotted with a bunch these past few months, "but still [while he's] with Kylie" as TMZ clarifies. So then, sound your klaxons, because this is really happening. "Leaving a random, scantily clad ladyfriend on your doorstep in the rain, right when the media is scheduled to arrive, seems like gutsy optics." And calling him out for it is pretty gutsy/giddy also (especially because DuJour has a well-established relationship with the Kardashians, unless this is all part of mama Kris's plan).
P.S. As part of his DuJour shoot (which the Fugs say caused Tyga many a styling dilemma), Tyga also posed with a bunch of mannequins and one sort of even looks a little like Kylie, so make of that what you will:
