Tyga Denies Being Creepy with 14-Year-Old Model-Singer Molly O’Malia
Tyga has run into some controversy regarding an underaged girl, and denies that he was at all creepy. Where have we heard that one before?
Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend, who she started dating before she turned 18 in August 2015 (he’s 26), is being accused by 14-year-old Molly O’Malia for inappropriately texting her, and initiating unwanted and “uncomfortable” contact with her online.
The model-singer has lawyered up with the infamous Gloria Allred, who held a news conference on Monday saying that because an OK! article was written about her allegedly getting between Jenner and Tyga, O’Malia has become the target of attacks.
The tabloid also falsely claims she found the attention from Tyga “exciting.”
The rapper’s rep has come back saying that while Tyga did indeed reach out to O’Malia, he only did so to potentially discuss her music career.
His manager Anthony Martini told TMZ Tyga contacted her after his team discovered she had a strong online musical following, thinking she might be good new talent for Tyga’s record label, Last Kings Records. According to Martini, there was nothing inappropriate and things never got “uncomfortable,” as she claimed they did. But who’s Tyga to claim what’s comfortable or not comfortable for a 14-year-old girl?
In addition, during their back and forth conversation, Tyga asked her to send him some music, and the reason why he wanted to FaceTime was to see her sing. His producers were allegedly right alongside him in the studio when he did this.
In other words, their interactions were completely PG and business only. Furthermore, they assert that O’Malia lied about her age – new texts reveal that she told him she was 17, not 14.
Here’s O’Malia’s statement at the press conference yesterday:
Tyga contacted me first. He direct messaged me on Instagram…I thought that it could possibly be about my music, but he did not mention that in his initial communication. I thought that was strange, but I was thinking he would bring it up in his next message. However, he didn’t mention it in the next message. I began to feel uncomfortable when he asked me to FaceTime with him. He asked me to FaceTime with him three times, but I didn’t do it. Because of my discomfort with why he wanted to communicate with me, I stopped responding.
