Tyga has the feds in his corner after naked pictures of him surfaced on the Internet Tuesday, TMZ reported Wednesday. Rumor has it that the photos were leaked by transgender model Mia Isabella after she had a sexting exchange with the rapper, but that might not be the case.
The rapper’s legal team got in contact with the FBI Wednesday morning regarding the incident, TMZ wrote. His lawyer, Lee Hutton, claimed that his client -- or someone Tyga purposely sent the pictures to -- was hacked.
Agents found the email that was originally sent to several publications. Tyga’s legal team knows the original blog that posted the story, TMZ added.
Isabella doesn’t claim responsibility for the nude photos. Her rep told TMZ that she wasn’t involved and that she wants to help Tyga, whose real name is Michael Stevenson, and the FBI find the culprit.

To make Tyga’s cheating rumors look worse, a different transgender model -- who looks similar to his reputed girlfriend Kylie Jenner -- claims Tyga paid her for sex, Media Take Out wrote Wednesday. The California model, who was referred to only as Cassandra, said there were other transgender models the rapper paid for.
Though Tyga, 25, didn’t respond directly to rumors that he cheated on Jenner, he did have something to say on Twitter Tuesday. “[Shaking my head]. The devil is working hard today. Lol,” he wrote. By Wednesday, the cryptic message had garnered more than 25,000 retweets and 22,000 likes from his 6.8 million followers. Since then, Tyga has stayed away from social media.
Jenner, 17, hasn’t addressed the cheating rumors or her supposed boyfriend’s naked pictures publicly. Instead, she promoted her clothing line for PacSun with her sister, Kendall.
