Earlier this week, Tyga was accused of stalking and harassing a 14-year-old girl named Molly O'Malia via social media and text messages.
The rapper has maintained that he was only interested in O'Malia's music career, but not surprisingly, his girlfriend Kylie Jenner has her doubts.
Now, sources say Tyga is desperately trying to convince Kylie that his interest in Molly is purely professional, but she's having a hard time believing the man with the well-documented interest in teenage girls.
“Tyga’s got nothing to hide and he’s been up front with Kylie about this situation from the jump," an (obviously pro-Tyga) insider tells Hollywood Life.
"Tyga only reached out to this girl because she had a huge online presence and thought if that many people like her vocals than there’s got to be something there that he can work with a help further develop.”
We guess Tyga is asking Kylie to overlook the fact that Molly specifically stated that he never mentioned anything about her music or her career in their private message exchanges.
Anyway, Tyga apparently claims he was just doing what Kylie always wanted him to do by getting out there and earning.
“He was in the mindset that [Molly] could be the next best thing. Tyga was thinking dollars – that’s it!" the source continues. "He doesn’t think Kylie should have a problem with this at all."
Yes, the man is actually trying to blame Kylie for pressuring him to make deals like some teenage girl version of Alec Baldwin in Glengarry Glen Ross. Coffee is for closers!
"After all, Kylie’s always been riding Tyga, telling him to make more money and encouraging him to be a huge player in the rap biz,” says the insider.
“So, he saw an opportunity and went for it. He was being proactive and trying to find talent like Akon did with Lady Gaga. It was all business on his end and that’s exactly what he told Kylie of this situation.”
It's true that Akon was instrumental in helping Gaga to score a record deal, but it's worth noting that Gaga wasn't 14 freakin' years old!
What we're trying to say is: Tyga was and ever shall remain shady AF.
