People who use Twitter as their preferred social network probably noticed Kylie Jenner and Tyga was a top-trending topic Sunday. The “friends” are rumored to be dating despite their seven-year age gap. While seven years isn’t a big difference for some couples, it’s a major factor when one of the people in the relationship is a teenager. This was aptly conveyed when the account Daily Rap Facts shared a "photo" of the stars from four years ago.
It’s a clearly Photoshopped picture that placed the rapper and reality star in the same photo. Tyga looks the same and Jenner, naturally, looks like a little girl. The tweet received more than 4,000 shares and 3,100 likes by Sunday night. The image also conjured up a statement made by Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose.

Rose, 31, called Jenner a “baby” and claimed Tyga and the Kardashain half-sister were definitely involved during an interview with “The Breakfast Club” Friday, on WWPR-FM, New York. Her statement has caused quite a stir, and her interview garnered nearly 200,000 views on YouTube.
“She’s a baby, she needs to go to bed at 7 o’clock and relax,” Rose said. “That’s ridiculous. He [Tyga] should be ashamed of himself. That’s how I feel. For sure. He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a 16-year-old who just turned 17.”
For background, Tyga has a child, King Cario, with Blac Chyna, who was once Kim Kardashian’s best friend du jour. Since Tyga and Blac Chyna split, the rapper’s been spotted with Jenner, and Blac Chyna’s relationship with Kardashian has fallen by the wayside. Coincidence?
Neither Jenner nor Tyga has responded to Rose’s “baby” comment. Instead, Jenner posted a photo of roses to Instagram on Valentine’s Day, but did not say who they were from. She also shared pictures from New York Fashion Week where she walked as a model in one of Kanye West’s shows for his “Yeezus” line with Adidas.
