Rumors swirled that rapper Tyga got an arm tattoo of Kylie Jenner’s name, his apparent girlfriend, after a picture of his new artwork surfaced on Instagram over the weekend. The photo was not shared on his personal account and he hasn’t said if the claim is true or false.
TMZ posted a photo of the tattoo, but it’s not immediately clear if it’s authentic.
Jenner, 17, however, would rather the alleged tattoo be drawn across Tyga's chest than his arm, an insider told Hollywood Life. “It shocked her that he actually did that, it’s a very big gesture on his part and she does like it. She thinks it’s in the wrong place, though. She would have liked it much, much more if it were drawn over his heart. If he had done that, she would have fallen to her knees,” an insider said. “Still, she thinks it’s very meaningful and knows that he really does care about her.”
Tyga, 25, might have chosen to express his love for the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" reality star through a tattoo after his ex-girlfriend Blac Chyna posted text messages to Instagram. Chyna, 26, didn’t say they were from Tyga, but the name on the messages was “King’s Father.” Many people automatically assumed the screenshot messages were from the rapper since he is the father of the model's 2-year-old son, King Cairo.
Though Chyna and Jenner have not called each other out by name, they’ve been involved in a social media battle. The text messages, which apparently showed Tyga asking to get back with Chyna, was just the latest blow in a serious battle. The model also posted a picture with fake wax lips, a diss during the viral Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge on social media.
Even though Tyga and Jenner publicly consider each other friends, it’s widely believed they are in a romantic relationship and are keeping it a secret until she turns 18 in August.
