Tyga and Kylie's relationship
Video: Tyga arrives on the Kardashian-Jenner family vacation
Tyga, or Michael Ray Stevenson which is his birth name, is an American rapper/singer/songwriter. After a number of independent releases, Tyga signed with Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records and Republic Records in 2008. His major label debut Careless World: Rise of the Last King dropped in 2011 and included the successful singles "Rack City", "Faded" featuring Lil Wayne, "Far Away" featuring Chris Richardson, "Still Got It" featuring hip-hop heavyweight Drake, and "Make It Nasty". Tyga and Kylie Jenner would ultimately date from 2015-2017.

This was the first picture that Kylie and Tyga would appear in - with sister Kendall and rapper Chris Brown. At this time, Tyga is engaged to Black Chyna and they have a young son, King Cairo. In August 2014, Tyga attended Kylie's 17th birthday and footage showed him offering the young Jenner a shot of tequila while she was dancing on some platform. Days after the celebration, Tyga ended his engagement to Blac Chyna. Speculation was already rife, and not all of it was harmless banter. People were not happy about the 8 year age difference between Kylie

Tyga denied left right and centre that he and Kylie were not dating and that he didn't leave his fiancée and child to be with the youngest Jenner. However, Tyga and Kylie start to appear at numerous public events together, and this little snippet from the documentary I Am Cait set tongues wagging - were Kylie and Tyga secretly engaged?
In August 2015, Tyga buys Kylie a Ferrari 458 convertible (worth approximately $320,000) so it's clear they are officially dating. Kylie starts to appear in Tyga's music video clips for tracks Stimulated and Dope'd Up.

The 2017 Met Gala
Both Tyga and Kylie attend the 2017 Met Gala in May, but walk the red carpet separately. Days later, it's confirmed they have split for good. It was alleged that Tyga had been cheating on Kylie with a series of models, and that he would simply wait until Kylie was away on business before messaging a mistress. By April, it was clear Kylie had moved on. She was spotted with hip-hop artist Travis Scott at a party during Coachella and the rest is history. Two years on, Kylie and Travis are now proud parents to little Stormi. There is no definitive news on who Tyga is dating currently, if anyone at all. But in a weird twist, it's come to light that Tyga was once married to Jordan Craig, who is the mother of Tristan Thompson's oldest child. Seems like everyone moves in very much the same circles in Hollywood!
When did the Kylie Jenner sex tape rumour start?
In 2016, whilst Kylie and Tyga were still together, Kylie's Twitter account was hacked. The hackers filled her account with crude messages like “I love being famous with no talent” and “well my sex tape with Tyga was trash” . Kylie didn't seem too concerned, she took to Snapchat saying “So my Twitter was hacked. And I don’t really care. I’m just letting them have fun” while she waited until she could regain control of her social platform. But the damage had been done. Even though Kylie regained control of her Twitter account and deleted the fraudulent tweets, the hackers had already planted the idea of a sex tape into the minds of the press. In a further Snapchat video, Jenner addressed the sex tape rumours directly, saying:
“Everyone’s like, ‘Leak the sex tape. Guys, you’re never going to see a sex tape from me. It’s not gonna happen.”

Did Tyga's diss track confirm the sex tape rumours?

After his break-up with Kylie, Tyga dropped a very obvious diss track "N- With Money", asserting his alleged wealth and making a pointed reference to filming a sex tape. During their relationship, the press had honed in on the fact that whilst Tyga's career was in a slump, Kylie's career was booming. One verse goes:
"What I'mma do, keep getting this money
And what you gon' do, flip through the gram
Made a movie, we shot it in France
I did it cause I can b**ch we was in Cannes (mm mm mm)
Brunch on the sand
Four bracelets I'm the new Killa Cam"
Kylie and Tyga had indeed attended the Cannes Film Festival together, and with rumours of a sex tape already flying around, this reference couldn't have been any more obvious. However, even with Tyga's salty diss track, we have yet to see a shred of proof that such a video exists. Kylie posts her own hot pics to Instagram, sure, but this is a far cry from filming a pornographic video.
Stormi's Paternity Rumours

When the gossip mill started to churn out whispers that Tyga was really Stormi's father, Kylie's ex initially originally branded them "fake news" and denied ever claiming he was the baby's father in November 2017. But as early as February this year, sources told The Sun that "Tyga wants a DNA test because he really thinks that there is a chance this baby could be his. Tyga told friends that he was still sexually active with Kylie nine months ago, when this baby was likely conceived.” Is this a legitimate concern of Tyga's, or is it just a publicity stunt? We're inclined to believe that it's the latter!
Motherhood & Kylie Skin
Kylie hasn't got time to be worrying about diss tracks from ex's or non-existent sex tapes. She and Travis are busy young parents to their daughter Stormi (here she is learning to walk down steps) and the make-up mogul has recently launched Kylie Skin, a skincare line to compliment her already successful make up products. Rumours of sex tapes follow celebrities wherever they go, sometimes there's truth to them and sometimes there's not. But in this case, we're confident that we can say - myth busted. If someone had a sex tape of Kylie and Tyga, they would have sold it and leaked it by now.
