It seems like it was just yesterday that every gossip blog headline and Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode revolved around Kylie Jenner and Tyga's relationship. But in a new interview, Tyga notes they have been broken up for seven months at this point and he's not looking to get back together anytime soon.
Speaking with Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club (opens in new tab), Tyga said he and Kylie broke up because, like most exes, they were in different places in life and had different priorities. "I have love for her but I'm not in love no more," he said. "When you're with anybody that first year, it's magic and then after that, you start realizing a bunch of shit."
A lot of their differences had to do with their (often controversial) age gap and how they dealt with their celebrity status. "I think the main thing was a lot of people—a lot of outside influences—and ... she's younger than me and she's dealing with perception," he said. "I'm older so I can deal with perception. But for her, growing up how she grew up, image and perception was everything. So you have a bunch of people pulling from you and you're still trying to develop as a young woman."
Also an issue was Kylie's social media fame and constant Snapchatting, apparently. "I like to keep a mystique and I know that's how she made her money," Tyga said. He also took issue with the media attention paid to him and thinks race had a lot to do with it. "For the last seven months we ain't been together, have there been any negative stories out?" he said. "All I'm saying is whoever controls this kind of media doesn't like seeing rappers with these type of women, especially young white women, and it's just how it is."
Overall, he said he likely wouldn't get back together with Kylie, saying, "I mean, when it was good, it was good. When it was bad, it was really bad." That said, he has no hard feelings for Kylie's reported new boyfriend, Travis Scott (opens in new tab).
On a (literally) related note, Tyga says it wasn't awkward at all when his ex, Blac Chyna, started dating Rob Kardashian—even though he found out about it on the internet like the rest of us. In fact, Tyga says he told Rob what he was about to get himself into, before he ended up in the tumultuous relationship. "I told him what the play was. I told him what he was going to deal with," he said. "I was just with her for three, four years, this is what you're about to deal with."
"She just has a different mentality. She really is a good person at heart, but she's been through a lot in her life, and she didn't have people to guide her in her life," Tyga said. "He's coming from a whole different world, you don't know how she moves and how she thinks. When you're in love and when you don't care what nobody else thinks, love blinds you."
