Tyga claims he only wanted to FaceTime with a 14-year-old to watch her ‘sing’


On Monday, 14-year-old Molly O’Malia held a press conference with her mom and with Gloria Allred – you can recap the situation here, I covered most of it yesterday. Molly maintains that she Tyga contacted her out of nowhere after he creeped on her social media photos. During the press conference, Molly said in part, that Tyga first contacted her through Instagram and:

“I knew who he was but I was surprised that he was contacting me. I thought that it could possibly be about my music, but he did not mention that in his initial communication with me. I thought that was strange, but I was thinking he would bring that up in his next message to me. However, he didn’t mention it in the next message… He asked me to FaceTime three times, but I did not do it. Because of my discomfort with why he wanted to communicate with me I quickly stopped responding to him. It’s crazy how so much can come out of nothing…. I don’t want what happened to me to happen to any other young girl.”

As I said yesterday, I believe Molly. But Tyga, a 26 year old man with a son, wants you to know that Molly is totally lying and he has the receipts to prove it. He handed off some screencaps of his online conversations with Molly to TMZ (you can see them here) and he got TMZ to publish this piece of garbage:

Tyga had a convo with 14-year-old model Molly O’Malia … but ONLY to scout her musical talent after his team became interested in signing her as a singer… this according to a rep for the rapper. Tyga’s manager Anthony Martini tells TMZ the rapper reached out to 14-year-old Molly O’Malia after his team found out she had a pretty strong musical following online and thought she might be a candidate for a Last Kings Records project … his record label. Tyga claims it was strictly business and completely PG. As for her age — according to text messages obtained by TMZ … Molly mentions she is 17.

The manager says in the back and forth Tyga specifically asked her to send him some music, adding things never got “uncomfortable” as she claimed. The rep says Tyga wanted to FaceTime Molly to talk business and see her sing … as he sat in the studio with his producers.

If you go and look at the texts and if you believe that they are not doctored whatsoever, then yes, she claimed to be 17. But… a 14-year-old lying about her age is nothing new, and even then, she was still claiming to be underage! And it didn’t deter Tyga at all! And now I think all of the online predators have learned a new excuse: I only wanted to Facetime with the 14-year-old so I could SEE her sing, people. Riiight.

Also: The Daily Beast is going HAM on Tyga now. It’s a beautiful thing to see.

    Shut up and lawyer up, Tyga. You are only making it worse.

    • BossyKat says:

      No breaking news here, we knew he was a creep. Although for the younger jenner’s and other 15 yr olds everywheres sake you hoped he wasn’t serially predatory about it.

      Now it seems he is. Maybe he’s one of those line skaters. Cruises feeds of young women on the cusp (almost 18) – old enough to be legal a few mos. in, yet young enough to boost his confidence.

      This is a guy who is also rumored to prefer trans and transsexuals.

      The girl is a child playing at being sexaay online – u can see it in her come hither face-timing duck face in that pic. She’s lying about her age. Let this be a cautionary tale for parents to get in your kid’s business and know what they’re up to online.

      Sounds like what happened here is, the poor kid wasn’t prepared to become insta-famous in the trashbloids as being the girl who stole Tyga from Kylie, and then be made enemy #1 to all the rabid kardashian Jenner online followers. After she got a headline as ‘the other woman.’ She understandably freaked.

      I think this is more about her calling ‘time out, stop hating- despite my ‘beat face,’ expertly applied banana powder and lip liner done Ala Kylie n Kim, I’m just a kid, leave me alone please!’

      Rather than it is her being skeered of twerpy Tyga.

      But it’s good she went public whatever the reason, as these creeps need to be exposed. If it was a truly legit business connection tyga would have had ‘his people,’ reach out.

    • Calico Cat says:

      Why do we want Tyga to shut up? Let him keep talking, we WANT it to get worse for him!

      Hey, has anyone thought about contacting NBC? They could do a sting on him – “And now, on a Very Special Episode of “To Catch a Predator- ‘”


  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Right. The new “come upstairs to look at my paintings.”

  3. Virginia says:

    Notice how after she says he’s 17 he asks what her birthday is. Trying to pin point when she turns 18 Tyga?? Such a predatory creep!

    • Izzy says:

      And he’s all “I thought you were older.” Ew. Pass the brain bleach.

    • Santia says:

      Yeah, he’s gross. If he was after her “talent,” he would have asked for a parent.

    • SydneySnider says:

      Yep. I don’t care what he says or how he tries to justify his behaviour – he’s a creepy little twat.

    • Cee says:

      I noticed the same thing! He’s an idiot.
      How long before Jenner drops him?

    • amunet ma'at says:

      I thought he was asking her birthday just to make sure she was the age the said she was. Reading the messages it was pretty innocuous and even though I don’t like him and give him the side-eye, he kept asking her repeatedly about her age and only mentions her talent and how she can sing. There didn’t appear to be any type of creep factor. Plus she looks hella older in her account pictures that I saw. Like she was 17-19 years old not 14, and lied about her age, so there is a lot of responsibility that should be on the mother and child in how you present yourself publically. I feel like since CatFish a lot of ppl ask to FaceTime as proof of identity.

  4. Izzy says:

    That Daily Beast article is awesome in its bluntness.

  5. Lucy2 says:

    Yeah sure his “team”. This guy barely has a career himself, yet has a team scouting?
    Plus if that’s all he was interested in, that would’ve been the first thing he said to her.
    He’s a creeper and I’m sure this isn’t the first young girl he’s done this to.

    • vauvert says:

      Exactly. Plus, if she has a “musical following “online… Then listen to her sing online. Creep.

      • lucy2 says:

        Yes! Clearly her talent is available to see, if she has a following.
        I think he thinks we’re all as dumb as his girlfriend.

    • Lizzie McGuire says:

      Seriously?! That’s his defense! I only wanted to FaceTime with a minor, even if she was saying she was 17 still a minor. A reasonable, professional adult will have contact the parents to say “hey, I think your kid has talent let’s set up something so she can give us a demo or anything”. It’s hard to believe him now after the whole Kylie thing, this guy is sick & he needs to stop harassing young girls.

  6. Shambles says:


    Even that flimsy “I wanted to see her sing” excuse doesn’t hold up. His word choices alone is sketchy as f*ck. You don’t need to see anyone sing. In this miraculous age of technology, there are a million ways to send someone a recording. If you want to HEAR them sing.

    The fact that he even chose to say he wants to SEE her sing should tell you everything. Reading between the lines, he’s saying “I wanted to be able to look at her, because I find her attractive.” I’m putting that mildly, because I’m sure his actual thought process was a thousand times more disgusting.

    In short, no. Even his excuse is gross.

    • I Choose Me says:

      My thoughts exactly. If he was truly contacting her about a possible record deal, shouldn’t THAT have been the first thing he mentioned?

      The sketchy and gross is so strong with him that I have a hard time stomaching images of his derpy ass face.

    • claire says:

      Don’t his own texts show that he was contacting her and asking to Facetime before she even mentioned she was a singer? And then, he acts surprised to hear so. So yeah, this excuse doesn’t hold up.

      • Colette says:

        Well her bio says she is a singer so he already knew that.He probably looks for wannabe singers and rappers to”produce”

  7. Melibea says:

    I guess Kylie is getting too old for his taste.

  8. swak says:

    If he was interested in her musically then he or his manager should have gotten in touch with the parents. No 14 yo or 17 yo for that matter can sign a legal contract if one is offered. So much wrong with his argument.

    • Snazzy says:

      Exactly. This whole thing is beyond gross. I hope he gets obliterated by all this

    • Christin says:

      Exactly. It would not matter if she claimed she was turning 18 the next week, he should have indicated a need to get her parents’ permission before any ‘audition’.

  9. NewWester says:

    If this was so “legit” as Tyga claims, then he should have asked to speak to her parents or have them contact him. Even if he heard her sing, he would not be able to work with her or sign her to a contract because she is underage. He was creeping around on his young girlfriend with a even younger girl. He is scum and was caught. This will turn into another mess like Tiger Woods(similar names too) with more nasty stories coming out.
    Only difference is he has Demon Mother pulling the strings. One could almost feel sorry for the (as someone pointed out ) this “removed appendix” looking man

    • hogtowngooner says:

      Exactly! He’s pervy scumbag who was trolling the interwebz for underage girls. If there was even a modicum of truth to his looking for new talent, anyone with an ounce common sense (which I admit is a tall order for someone like him) would ask to speak to her parents and her agent (if she had one). If it was legit, you protect yourself from any possible misunderstanding when it comes to dealing with a minor.

    • Miss M says:

      “Removed appendix”

      Thank goodness, I am not drinking or eating anything.

  10. Jayna says:

    So he thought she was 17 and he’s texting and trying to get face time with her. LOL Then he asked when her birthday was. He was figuring out when he could nail her and it would be legal.

    Kylie, you are with a guy that is a wanna-be, can’t pay his bills, using the Kardashian fame to help him, and is trolling underage girls.

    Time to move on. I imagine she’s loaned him money.

  11. Bess says:

    Does anyone know if Kylie is standing by her man or is Tyga on the way out of the Jenner klan?

    • swak says:

      From all the articles of showing how they are together, I’m thinking she’s standing by her man until she can use him and a breakup for more publicity and to garner sympathy.

      • FingerBinger says:

        I’m thinking she’s standing by her man until somebody better comes along.

      • me says:

        I think Kylie will be single for the next season of KUWTK. Great storyline for her. But for now, they have to keep Tyga as they have already filmed him for this season and need those pap pics !

    • me says:

      They are on a skiiing trip right now ! Someone took a pic of them shopping at the ski resort just a few days ago. Why would they get rid of Tyga now? He has given Kylie so much publicity ! He’ll be gone soon enough, but I think they can still squeeze a few more stories out of him yet.

  12. Mylene - Montreal says:

    If Kylie Jenner stay with him after that … She really stupid !!!!! Tyga and 14 years old on the same sentence … Eurk make me sick

  13. kri says:

    I am beyond grossed out by this turd with eyes. He is a repulsive, lying a-hole. Thanks again, Kris Jenner. The Kween of Daughter Pimping is the gift that keeps on giving.

  14. Esteph says:

    I just read the Daily Beast article…damn! Marlow makes a great point, but to people like the K clan and to Tyga, this isn’t a big deal and Molly is a hanger-on.

  15. Lucy says:

    I believe her too.

  16. laura says:

    And I came down in the last shower Tyga……..

  17. Anoneemouse says:

    Do you hear that? If you listen closely, you can hear Blac Chyna laughing her ass off…..

    • Alltheway says:

      She leaked comments saying she hopes Tyga will reform quickly so she won’t have to watch him try to pick up girls at their son’s high school graduation ceremony.

  18. noway says:

    I do have a bit of a problem with her story now that I have seen more especially the direction the media is taking it. I hope everyone realizes this and tells their children it is not illegal for adults to contact children on social media. This is the risk every kid has when they go on it, what the adult can’t do is solicit sex or other illicit things. At this point even with her story its all a public image thing for Tyga not legal and yes he does look like a sceevy creeper. Now if he was constantly texting her and she or her parents said stop, which I don’t think anyone did that might be some cyber stalking in some states. Keep in mind they are going after OK magazine for the pixellated image not Tyga directly because they know they don’t have a case for that.

    Also, the other problem with this story is that Tyga’s account of what happened is somewhat believable, more so if he didn’t already have a relationship with an underage Kylie Jenner, but still plausible. He claims she does have a big following on instagram as a singer and he wanted to FaceTime her to make sure her voice wasn’t doctored as a lot of them are. He claims it was FaceTime at the studio with several others. I guess that is better than in person. Tyga apparently is trying to be the new Usher producing new talent, which to me is the funny part of the story. Even if the above is true, Tyga is so creepy I don’t really care what they say about him, and I am sure if she showed the slightest bit of interest he would be all over her literally. The problem is a lot of 14 year old girls probably would be interested and that is all the in Tyga needs.

    • Flowerchild says:

      Come on when is FaceTime ever better than seeing someone live? The answer is never, FaceTime glitches all the time and doesn’t hold water to the real thing. Let’s not just come up with any story to make Tyga story seem more believable. I mean would you rather FaceTime a concert or see your favorite musician live?

      Where are these “other” people that was supposedly in the studio and Why haven’t they come forward? He can’t produce himself a music career or Kim 2.0 a music career, but you believe he was going to produce this girl one?

      Also, what does her age have to do with anything 14 or 17 she is still underage and he would need to go through her parents regardless, which he didn’t do.

    • claire says:

      Then why in his texts to her does he act surprised when she says she’s a singer?

    • amunet ma'at says:

      @noway I have to agree with your assessment. I believe just b/c ppl don’t like Tyga and think he’s sketch that they are bandwagoning, but the messages are not that sketchy, nor did he do anything out of the norm in this situation of social media. His past is catching up to him b/c this is not a good look but to me this is more of a bad look on the mom than Tyga.

  19. Nancy says:

    Sorry but he gets a pass for being a pedo because is a POC. And a rapper. I think he is gross and he dated Kylie when she was 15 or 16 when he was a 24 year old dude. Sorry but that is gross and he is a rapist in that aspect.

  20. DaSH says:

    Lie. Why would he scout for a new talent when he can barely sell his album. Kylie won’t leave Tyga, this girl has a lot of issues and she has low self esteem, a little sweet words and manipulation from Tyga and she’s feeling all loved up. Gross.

    • Alltheway says:

      I agree. I don’t think Kylie has been using him for publicity; I think she really loves/d him. Poor kid. And I’ll bet it’s all about self-esteem. He’s such a massive loser!

  21. Lbliss says:

    I don’t understand if you were mortified about a blurred out pic, why would you go on national tv? Sue the magazine company in private then. Why make such a media circus if you were so uncomfortable about having your blurred out image in a magazine. She seemed really rehearsed when I watched part of this yesterday. I’m so confused now!

    • BNA. FN says:

      Molly and mother went public because they wanted to call Tyga out for being a creep. I remember when Amber Rose, Kanye’s x girl friend, and Blac China’s friend, called Tyga out for messing with Kylie, he denied that they were together. Kanye was the person who admitted Tyga he was with the underage Kylie and Kanye approved of their relationship. Kloe cursed out Amber and told her to mind her business. The day Kylie turned 18 she and Tyga went public with their relationship. Tyga was romancing Kylie since she was about 14-15 it appears. The whole KK and Jenner clan are low the bottom of the barrel, jmo.

    • Alltheway says:

      @Lbliss: She clearly said everyone already knew who she was and she was getting abuse on social media. Already out of the bag. She sounded rehearsed because she was. I thought she looked nervous in the sense that all her teena friends would judge her for the press conference but determined to refute OK or Hello’s implicit message that they had an inappropriate social-media flirtation. I think that was the key problem for her. She didn’t want to be known as the underage girl who enjoyed flirting with Tyga on Instagram. That’s why she made a point of saying she turned him down.

  22. Lama Bean says:

    I believe her, but….

    GOOD GRACIOUS she looks hella old for a 14 year old. She looks like she is pushing mid- to late-20s.

    • swak says:

      I always said that Courtney Stodgens always looked WAY older than she was. Why would you want to do that????

  23. Daisyduck says:

    Am I being blind or did it look like SHE was the one who kept messaging him first?

  24. Abbess Tansy says:

    He is R. Kelly junior.

  25. saras says:

    Like he could help anyone? He is almost broke, latest album flopped, and barely serves as a skeevy boyfriend /plotline for Kylie. I hope this scandal finally torpedoes him!

  26. tacos and tv says:

    Enough, Tyga! Maybe this story would blow over if you hadn’t pursued a minor, but your track record shows that you are not opposed to relations with children. And, if he was interested in her talent, that’s fine, but he could have also requested access to speak to her mother, or had his team contact her. He is 26, and has no reason to contact a 14 or a 17 year old about anything without her parent’s consent. In my opinion, Tyga is a child predator and should be arrested.

  27. Suzy from Ontario says:

    It sounded pretty chummy before he seemed to even know she was a singer. If he contacted her about singing, then why didn’t he know she was a singer?

  28. Stacey says:

    she is a stupid teenage girl. I expect her to make dumb decisions, she’s 14 with 50k instagram followers- for that I blame her mother.

    but Tyga is the adult in this interaction. The minute he acknowledged her being underage- he should have ceased communication immediately. The fact he continued to pursue her speaks volumes. He’s a perv.

  29. BNA. FN says:

    @Stacey, I hope you are a child because if you are a grown up, I’m would be disappointed that you would call a 14 year old child “stupid”. First, she is intelligent enough to cut off communication with someone that she felt was not being truthful in why he was communicating with her, end of story.

  30. Alltheway says:

    I read another popular celeb blog (blog name starts with J) and it’s interesting that blog barely has a story about this! Only a short post on Tyga denying it. That other blog often runs KUWTK promotional posts and glowing Kard-Jenner stories, so I’m sure that has absolutely nothing to do with it.

  31. serena says:

    I really DO hope all the press will bring this trashy pedophile down!

  32. A Fan says:

    Another P.O.S.

    [*Get in line, Tyga*]

  33. Naddie says:

    He’s gross, should respond criminally, period. And I really don’t get the “she looks much older” comments. It must be a cultural thing, because to me she looks 16, 17 even all dolled up. You can even see the baby cheeks in her face, c’mon.
    P.S: Duck face is the new black. Ew.

  34. NeoCleo says:

    I can’t stand looking at his face.

  35. TWstudio says:

    In all fairness, it is possible in the case of considering signing someone to a label, to need to see the person sing to make sure they really can in this digital age of doctoring one’s vocals. Frankly, many (if not most) cannot sing live. Asking age/birthday could be assessing the need (or not) to go through a parent to sign her.
