Tyga Opens Up About Split From Kylie Jenner: “It Overshadowed Me”

After splitting with lip-enthusiast Kylie Jenner just over a month ago, Tyga has opened up about his relationship with the reality star, and admitted that the relationship ‘overshadowed’ his talents.

Speaking to Big Boy TV, he stated that his time with the 18-year-old took the shine away from his career:

“When you’re in a very public relationship like that, it’s hard for other people to see you differently than that,” he said. “Being in that it took a lot, career wise, everything. It overshadowed a lot of my talents and a lot of things that I worked hard for.”

“When something is so damaged or something is just not right, you can’t fix it in a moment. The only thing is time.“

However, the rapper was keen to stress that the decision to end things was mutual – and that he was still friends with his ex, saying: “It got to the point where it was like, 'I respect you, you respect me.’ I think it’s a mutual thing. This is what needs to happen.”

However, some sources have claimed that it was momager extraordinaire Kris Jenner who was the real reason behind the split.

It’s thought that Kris was the one that persuaded her daughter to end things with the music star who was alleged to have cheated on Kylie with a transgender porn star.

It’s been previously claimed that Kylie’s mum never exactly saw eye-to-eye with the Rack City rapper and was pleased when it seemed things were coming to an end.

“Kris feels Tyga needs to grow up,” a source previously claimed to Hollywood Life. “She’s really fed up with him,” they added.

Before the split, another source added that Kris’ worst fear was that her daughter gets hurt.

“Kris is worried that Kylie is going to get majorly hurt by Tyga and wants to see her out of this relationship before it blows up in her face,” a source told the site at the time.

It’s now reported that Kylie has vowed to be ‘done with Tyga for good’ and has no plans to give him another chance, with a source telling People:

“Kylie insists that she is done with Tyga for good. She broke things off several weeks ago initially, then they got back together briefly but she says she is done now.”
