It’s no secret that “Rack City” rapper Tyga was the first love for “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kylie Jenner, but what some might not know is Tyga is scheming to keep control of her post-breakup, Radar Online wrote Monday. When Jenner tried to move on with R&B star PartyNextDoor, Tyga played on her weaknesses to try to win her back.

Tyga, whose real name is Michael Stevenson, likes to have power over Jenner’s life. “He’s a total control freak and totally working her into a jealous frenzy whenever he gets the chance,” an insider told Radar Online. “It’s how he’s always kept her hooked — by playing on her insecurities.”

The two got together when Jenner was 16 and made things official publicly when she turned 18. “She’s young. When you’re young, you’re going to make mistakes,” the source said. “All of those mistakes are going to be in the public eye, so that puts a lot of strain on the relationship.”

One of the manipulative things Tyga, 26, did was date a model who looked like Jenner, 18. “Tyga’s been boasting to pals that he knew Kylie would come back if he treated her bad,” the insider added. “Now he’s got the upper hand.”

Another post-breakup manipulation was the Instagram picture he posted and then deleted. He shared a photo of Jenner hiding her face and wrote, “The always come back.” Then he changed the caption to simply, “Back.” Eventually, he deleted it altogether.

Now, Tyga considers the Instagram stunt a “mistake,” but the point of the post was to send a message to PND. “He was caught up in his feelings and wanted PartyNextDoor to know that Kylie belongs to him. He wanted PND to know that he’s Kylie’s first boyfriend, first sexual encounter, first lover and first relationship, and that he could steal her from him at the snap of a finger,” an insider told Hollywood Life in an exclusive report Monday. “Tyga was being messy when he posted that picture of Kylie and his friends told him to take it down because it made him look extra petty, so he did.”
