“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kylie Jenner and her rapper boyfriend, Tyga, are not married, Gossip Cop wrote in an exclusive report Monday. The teenager sparked rumors about clandestine nuptials after she posted a photo to Instagram that showed her with a diamond ring on her left hand. But no matter how many news outlets perpetuate the claim, it’s not true, Gossip Cop wrote.
The story spread after Britain’s Daily Mail wrote that Tyga, 25, might have “popped the question” to the 17-year-old. “Kylie Jenner may have said yes,” the British news site wrote. However, Gossip Cop, a publication that debunks phony stories, said rumors of Kylie and Tyga being married are “100 percent false.”
Rumors have swirled for weeks that Tyga wanted to propose to the reality star when she turns 18. He even asked Caitlyn Jenner to walk her down the aisle, according to Hollywood Life. The claim supposedly infuriated her mother, Kris Jenner.

Part of what might have stoked the rumor even further was that Kylie teased she was married during the season premiere of “I Am Cait,” her father’s docuseries, when her grandmother, Esther, gave her a photo of herself when she was the same age Kylie is now.
“'I thought you should have this. It's me when I was 17,” the 89-year-old said in the clip. “Oh my God. Wait, we kind of look alike. … I definitely take the Jenner side,” Kylie said. But when Caitlyn said, “I know, you do. Here's the kicker, she was 17 years old in this picture, and she was married,” Kylie said: “Kind of like me.” The camera cut away and didn’t elaborate on the teenager’s statement.
In the Instagram photo in question, Kylie practically makes her ring finger to focal point of the picture and flaunts her signature pout. She simply captioned the image, “king kylie,” and received more than 1.2 million likes from her 30.5 million followers.
They might not be married, but older sister Khloé Kardashian made it clear she supports Kylie’s relationship. She said the teenager “is not a normal 17-year-old,” so her bond with Tyga should be treated “as a special case” during an interview with Complex magazine.
