Transgender model Mia Isabella refuses to remain silent. After alleging in early July that she had a tryst with “Rack City” rapper Tyga, the model said she experienced cyberbullying. The harassment continued when she made the cheating allegations again last week.
Instead of being quieted, Mia said she took a stand for “freedom, hope and love.” She worked with her friend, porn star Christy Mack, to create a signature T-shirt with Profane Clothing and she hopes 10 percent of the proceeds will go to transgender youths.
“During the media storm, I was bombarded with gossip, threats and cyberbullying,” she wrote on Instagram Monday. The “media storm” is probably a reference to “promises” she made about exposing Tyga, who is the boyfriend of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kylie Jenner.
The supposed trolls harped on Mia once more after she called out Tyga Wednesday: “Funny how your team created a fake witch hunt so you looked [like] the victim, when in fact you’re guilty, and I’m the victim.”

By Monday, Mia said she would not be victimized. “I was overwhelmed during those moments because I realized why so many young trans people take their lives,” she wrote. “But instead of crumble I decided to stand with those who stood for freedom, hope and love.”
Even though Tyga, whose real name is Michael Stevenson, has indirectly denied he cheated on Kylie with Mia, the transgender model is adamant about the accusation.
She continues to promise to tell exactly what happened, but never gives specific details. Tweets likes this -- “To tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth right hand up so help me God. What others lack I can back with fact” -- are popular statements from Mia.
Kylie, who turned 18 Monday, has yet to respond to Mia’s assertions.
