Transgender model Mia Isabella is not afraid to speak out. She has not stopped posting cryptic messages to Instagram and Twitter since rumors surfaced that she had a tryst with rapper Tyga, the reputed boyfriend of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” reality star Kylie Jenner.
Amid the scandal, Tyga, 25, and Jenner, 17, stepped out together in public Sunday night. The two went on a sushi date to Nobu in Los Angeles, Us Weekly reported Monday. Jenner wore a leopard jacket and had her hair in a messy bun.
Though Tyga hasn’t directly addressed the drama, he has written several memos that seem to be aimed at the rumors. "My focus is always on the positive and building up those around me," he wrote as the controversy continues to bubble. "I'll never understand why people choose hate and negativity over anything else." Earlier, he essentially claimed all the rumors were the “work of the devil” and laughed them off.

Jenner hasn’t said anything that could be construed as a response. But Isabella, 29, has made up for it by posting multiple times a day on Instagram. “I suppose I'm GUILTY until proven innocent in the "court of public opinion" - SMH ... price of being Transgender in America. Stones throwing pebbles at a diamond,” she wrote Saturday. “From your perspective, I am whatever you think I am. From my perspective, I am,” she said in another.
Jenner has faced a scandal of her own. The “KUWTK” star was slammed by “Hunger Games” actress Amandla Stenberg after she posted a photo of herself with cornrows. The actress claimed Jenner was misappropriating black culture. In the Instagram picture she said, “I woke up like dis.” But the cornrows didn’t last long. The last time she shared a video of herself, she donned a blue wig while she spoke gibberish.
