Kylie Jenner & Tyga broke up before the Met Gala, the split is ‘acrimonious’


Last November, Tyga and Kylie Jenner broke up. It seemed like the millionth time their relationship status was in question, and it seemed like Kylie had dumped Tyga because – allegedly – he wanted to marry her and she wasn’t ready. After a week or two, they got back together. But then in January, there were several sketchy and worrisome reports. One, Tyga had allegedly cheated on Kylie with a Brazilian model. Two, Gloria Allred claimed he was creeping on a 14-year-old girl on social media. All in all, Tyga is not a winner. And while I don’t care about Kylie Jenner whatsoever, she needed to dump the dead weight and start anew with someone moderately better. And apparently that’s what she’s preparing to do.

Kylie and Tyga are finished … dunzo … for good-zo. Sources connected to the former couple tell TMZ … it happened days before the Met Ball last week. They were both at the gala, but they did not walk the red carpet together, and that was her decision.

As for why … everyone’s being tight-lipped, but we do know this. Tyga took his mom and a model to Mother’s Day lunch … and he’s not telling his friends whether she’s his new GF.

We also know this … the breakup was acrimonious. We’re told Kylie was bent out of shape that Tyga had the nerve to go to the Met Ball. He was only invited because of her, and she’s mad at herself that she didn’t think to have him made persona non grata. The 2 have broken up before, but we’re told this time there’s no going back.

[From TMZ]

An acrimonious break up centered around Met Gala invites? So dumb. But if Kylie really means it this time, then God bless. I hope it’s the end. The problem might be that Tyga is actually part of the cast of Keeping Up with the Kardashians these days. The current season, the season that’s airing right now, heavily features a storyline about Kylie and Tyga’s relationship, and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if KUWTK is a big chunk of Tyga’s current income. If Kylie is dumping Tyga for good, does she have to tell her mom to not renew Tyga’s contract?

    Isn’t he blac China’s baby daddy
    ? Um super dysfunctional and confusing.

    • Nancy says:

      Yep. Kylie thrives on attention and lost a lot of it once she turned 18 and wasn’t jail bait any longer. I think she thinks she is Kim.2 but really won’t go very far, at least in the media, once that show is over.

      • WhatAmIDoingHere? says:

        Let’s hope she isn’t as desperate for attention as Kim is, we don’t need another Kylie Jenner Superstar ft Ray Jay.

  2. Nancy says:

    Yipes. Does this make Rob and Black Chyna even more irrelevant now. Details to follow on a very special KUWTK. Yawn fest..

    • robynsing says:

      I think this is a deliberately planted story. They want them to be apart so PMK and CHYGA can release CHYGA’s (Chyna and Tyga) sex tape which they are shopping and feeling out right now. The storyline will involve mega-drama throughout the dysfunctionals and their mates. It’s always about trashing peripherals like CHYGA and Lamar and those who have already fallen like Humphries and Dissick while the women of K-trash stand as “hard working” and “sainted”

      • Nancy says:

        Yip. PMK has a knack for destroying those once involved then uninvolved with her spawn. But some of the exes survived, Humphries is doing well in Atlanta, Reggie went on to marry a better version of Kim. Lamar and Scott were both damaged before and they just put the nails in the coffin as Khloe cries in the camera as she is taking pics of Lamar when all thought he was dying. Kourtney basically used Scott as a sperm donor, never intended to marry him, just have the same father for her kids which nowadays is a big deal. These aren’t good people by any means. Ah just read somewhere Caitlyn regrets her transition and in the next couple years will be Bruce again. OMG

  3. Xav says:

    I bet they don’t even know what acrimonious means

  4. Darkladi says:

    Good for her. She isn’t much, but he was down right gross. He’ll miss his meal ticket.

  5. Mimz says:


    ETA: I was ok when I saw Kris jenner, or even Future at the MET, at least he looked great. When I saw Tyga I almost threw a fit. WHY was he allowed in there??

    • lizzie says:

      right? why is Tyga invited to the Met Gala at all? If he was Kylie’s plus one and didn’t go with her – how did he get his own invite plus one? Anna Wintour has lost her mind. i am not opposed to inviting Kim and Kanye or even Kris. They have been on the cover of Vogue and the Kardashians have the money to buy entry to the gala. But how does Tyga get his own invite?

      • Bridget says:

        I think the story is saying he was still Kylie’s plus one, and chose to still use that. Which, how horrified must the Met Gala people be to hear that? The guest list this year was pretty down market, and they could have avoided this clown attending.

      • Booklion says:

        I honestly don’t understand why any of them were there to be honest but i guess money can buy anything. Kendall is supposedly on the june vogue US cover too…

    • me says:

      Why were any of the Kardashian/Jenners allowed in there? Kanye is the reason any of them were invited.

  6. Lara K says:

    He is so skeevy – no idea why anyone would touch him. Yuck.

    • Petee says:

      Yes he is truly hard on the eye.A little girl crush that turned into a relationship.Kris should be ashamed as a mother to let it even happen.

      • Jwoolman says:

        Kris was promoting that relationship. She let Kylie wander around Europe with him when Kylie was 16. Apparently when asked about Kylie’s whereabouts, Kris was unsure…. So Kylie must have been on her own without a keeper.

        Hasn’t Kris signed Tyga for her 10%? Or is that just for show-related activities?

      • Bridget says:

        10% of what? The 5 albums he sold?

  7. Patricia says:

    As someone who is rooting for this girl to make her own decisions and live a life on her own terms (not being pimp mama’s littlest ho for the rest of her life) I am very happy to hear this.
    Now if she would only break up with the rest of the Klan….

  8. Abbess Tansy says:

    He looks like a snail, really gross.

  9. guest says:

    She’s mad tyga used her to get into the met gala? What about the fact that her whole families claim to fame is to use people more famous then them to make the news, and get into places.
    Neither of them should have been there.
    I have no sympathy for Kylie. I hate how every time they break up with somebody we only hear one side.
    The K/J’s side. Do they have these guys sign a gag order?
    Then they use it for their show, and go on the media basically trashing them.
    Kylie’s young I get that but I read something khloe said in 2015, and I know she has no one looking out for her.
    Khloe: “I think at 16 I was probably fcking someone that was in their 20s, for sure. I wouldn’t say I was even dating, probably just sleeping with them. But again, Kylie is not a normal 17-year-old. You’re not gonna say, “Hey, so what are you doing this weekend?” and have her say, “Having a slumber party at my girlfriend’s,” or “Going to prom.” That’s not what Kylie does. Kylie is taking business meetings and bought her first house, or she’s going on a private plane with Karl Lagerfeld to take a meeting. That’s not even what people do in their 30s. It’s a rare circumstance, so let’s treat this as a special case.”

    • Erinn says:

      I honestly don’t want to hear that douchebags side.

      He’s a complete skeeze, and such a creep for constantly going after these young UNDERAGED girls. I’d rather see him locked up over hearing his narrative on the breakup.

      Say what you will about the Kardashian’s, but Kylie breaking it off with a complete creep is NOT a bad thing.

      • guest says:

        I agree and understand your point of view. I just can’t wait for him to start spilling all of there secrets. He seems the type.
        Though I do believe that they broke up because Chynais pregnant and only said they weren’t together at the Met Gala so people won’t think that.
        I think she probably broke it off with him.

      • Nick says:

        I know Khloe is protecting her sister but all of us have heard Kylie speak and she sounds completely vapid. I know the K’s and J’s like to portray themselves as these dynamic business women (Kris might be) but their reality is far from that.

    • Cran says:

      I actually agree with Khloe except Kylie is not a special case. She, like all of us, is a product of the environment in which she was raised. Hoping for her to magically see the light speaks more to the optimism of the commenter than the reality of her situation. Kylie was raised in an ignorant environment and she is an ignorant person. She has a mother and four older sister and not one of them seem to think this relationship was all kinds of wrong. Not one of these women have any relationships with men that are worthy of emulation. She will be lucky to stumble into a relationship with an actual worthwhile man.

      • guest says:

        Yes, but they sit and have a meeting about rob’s relationship. Yet, the defend Kylie’s inappropriate one. I understand, that Kylie’s not going to be any different. I just found it odd, that in a older episode, Khloe was talking about how having sex when she was really young with a older man effected how she saw sex and relationships.
        Yet, here she is saying something totally different. I have a younger sister as well, but I would try to teach her to learn from my mistakes and see how they affected me. It’s out of my control rather she does it or not. Though, I would never say “I did it worse so at least your doing it better”.
        IDK. I just wish the youngest would have gotten a chance to live somewhat of a normal life.

    • Jwoolman says:

      So since Khloe was unprotected, that’s okay for Kylie. No wonder the kid looks so sad. She keeps hoping to be adopted by a nice, caring family of wolves.

      Khloe was taught how to drive at 13 because she was so often in charge of the younger ones, the idea was that she could take them to the doctor or hospital in an emergency. Khloe says she used the car to visit her much older boyfriend in her first sexual relationship. She also said it was a bad idea, she wasn’t ready and that it put her off sex for a few years. I didn’t realize she meant she was rarin’ to go again by 16, again with a significantly older boyfriend.

      Those Kardashian/Jenner kids really missed out on so many things usually part of a comfortable childhood and early adolescence. Their parents just seemed so out of it. As long as they could occasionally take family pics, they could ignore everything else their kids were getting into. I suppose they figured lack of conflict was a sign of a happy family. Actually it was just a sign of disengaged parents, because adolescence is supposed to bring conflict. Often frequent, heart-wrenching conflict…. Otherwise the kids would never grow up and leave the nest! But parents have to give a damn before there can be conflict.

      I know teenagers can manage to do pretty much what they want regardless, if they really want. But most real parents at least attempt to help them avoid hazardous situations that require more emotional maturity and experience and can be very difficult for even full grown adults. Things like knowing where they are and with whom, providing chaperones at potentially dicey events, and actually talking with them about risky behavior and what signs of abusive relationships to watch out for. Kris Jenner seems to have just let her kids wander off at will with very little if any supervision. She thought her job was done when she got them on contraceptives by the age of 13.

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        Don’t forget about Caitlyn. She was not there for the kids either. You can’t blame it all on Kris.

  10. KittenFarts says:

    I wonder if she’ll want her old face back now. I always thought she was morphing into Blac Chyna.

    • CG says:

      Did she get even more work done? Her face in the Met Gala pic looks … different …

  11. DanaG says:

    Lets hope they dont get back together she is 18 she is way too young to be settling on one guy especially that low life. Im sure Kris has a you are dumped clause maybe if they stopped hiring their boyfriends they might actually get a good one and not one in it for the cash and exposure?

  12. Naya says:

    Yo Blac Chyna, you did it! Now to phase two of Operation Krush Em All.

  13. NewWester says:

    Tyga was not bringing in money to the Bank of Kardashian/Jenner. Demon Mother decided he had to go. He did the bring the attention(and money) like Lamar, Scott, Kanye. Even Caitlyn Jenner who is not on the show still keeps the family’s name in the spotlight( her own show had Demon Mother and other family members make appearances)
    Just watch as Tyga gets turned into roadkill by the Kardashian steamroller
    aka: TMZ. Stories that are “leaked” about how awful Tyga was to Kylie will be coming soon. The focus then will now turn to the upcoming storylines with Rob, Blac Chyna and the new baby

    • guest says:

      Yeah, Tyga is scum. Tyga is a opportunist. Tyga is a pervert.
      However, while they are sitting around discussing Rob dating Chyna, They should have been talking to Kylie about dating a 25 year old man. Possible when she was 16.
      I don’t get why I should blame Tyga entirely, when Kris or Kaitlyn didn’t step in to save their daughter from this situation. They were all for it and defending it.
      Instead Kaitlin is more concerned about herself, and Kris is just seeing how much money they can make off of it. I’m happy this situation ended up with a break up and not a pregnancy or marriage.
      No one is looking out for Kylie, so she will just get into another bad relationship and suffer. It’s just another storyline to them.

    • me says:

      I wonder if Blac Chyna only agreed to be on KUWTK if they got rid of Tyga lol. Hey I can see the Kardashians agreeing to that as Chyna will bring in wayyyyy more viewers than Tyga ever did.

  14. Samipup says:

    Ugh; Kamel toe. All I got.

    • Trillion says:

      ugh on beating her face with a trowel! Her contouring is out of control! She’s a teenager. She doesn’t even need it to begin with.

  15. Talie says:

    I’m sure this has everything to do with her brother’s messy relationship with Tyga’s baby mama.

  16. Jess says:

    100% think that now that black china (I know sp) is pregnant the k/j have to take her/rob’s side. So tyga has to go. There is no room for nuance or compromise in that family. You’re with them or not. Obviously this is great news for kylie.

  17. Jwoolman says:

    Actually, Rob’s relationship with Angela seems the healthiest of the bunch. Even though Angela ran around with Kim once upon a time, she does seem to be kinder and more intelligent than Kim. I hope they are really careful about getting involved with reality tv — it’s one thing to look to make some extra money short-term, but long-term it will suck out their souls and stomp on them and destroy their relationship and damage their children.

    Kylie may be a lost cause already. She seems so aimless – busy following orders but not really able to follow her own dreams or even have her own dreams. She frequently expresses a longing for a life away from the cameras but can’t extricate herself from the vicious family business. Her next relationship is very likely going to be a repeat of this hopefully past one. She has no model in front of her of a good life partner or even a good date, and is just a proverbial sitting duck for any predator that comes along.

  18. serena says:

    Hope she sticks with it this time and dump his stupid ass for good.

  19. me says:

    Tyga will still be in Kylie’s life one way or another for the rest of her life since his son will be half siblings with Rob’s son/daughter.

    • Caz says:

      not really. Tyga doesn’t have to be invited into Kardashian premises or to their functions/events. he can be completely excluded, as required, as can the child. If the child’s mother is still part of the K-Klan she would presumably bring the child, if they want the child to attend.

      I can’t believe I took the time to think about this and type it.

  20. tacos and tv says:

    I really don’t like calling people ugly, but Tyga is really ugly. Even without his tats. I usually like tattoos on men, huge turn on, but my God can he make a good thing hard to appreciate. I really can’t stand his face. His songs are really gross and I do not see any talent what so ever. I’ve listened to him speak and heard him in interviews and he is not smart. And I accidentally clicked on his “leaked” private parts picture and was not impressed… so, I just don’t know what she sees in him?! She’s an attractive girl, she can do way better! She’s young and has money, it just doesn’t make any sense.

    • RJ says:

      ITA. Kylie *was* an attractive young woman until she morphed her face & body into Jessica Rabbit. I can’t imagine what she is going to look like in 10 years. Big sis Kim has already reached the point where she is stretched tight & peeled to the max. At some point I’d imagine the skin just can’t take it any more and starts to break down (see Michael Jackson, Melanie Griffith, and any desperate housewife wannabe in southern california).

  21. angela says:

    Kylie was getting to old for him anyways…time for him,to move on to the next underaged girl

  22. jferber says:

    Just an aside, but Kris’ sideburns make her look more like Lucifer, no?

  23. Giddy says:

    The way PMK is looking at Kylie, it looks like she is stealing her soul. Horrid woman.

  24. Nik says:

    I really don’t care about her dumping the broke ug dude. She better step up her man game otherwise she’ll be just another Kardasian use up and throw out sister

  25. Caz says:

    I caught 5 mins of a recent episode. Those Kardashian girls really are basic when you see them in motion, as opposed to heavily photoshopped photos.

  26. LAK says:

    Hope she finds a better BF next time.

  27. IcedGreenTeaLatte says:

    No, friend to Lucifer, pimp mama k just decided to not renew tigger’s contract. Dude can’t pay his bills on time & Pimp Mama K does not play around with dudes that are broke. Especially ones that have had 6 lambos repossessed in the past year. As we speak, Sherlock pimp mama is K is on a the hunt for a mega rich nfl, nba, rapper victim. . Errrrr I mean boyfriend for her chronically depressed cash cow. . . Errrr I mean daughter.

  28. Tizer says:

    Olivier roustieg was the one who invited tyga to the Met gala…and Tyga wore his design
