Rapper Tyga has dismissed reports suggesting he is dating Kim Kardashian's younger half-sister Kylie Jenner, insisting he's just a longtime friend of the family. The Rack City hitmaker has been photographed out and about with the 17 year old on numerous occasions following his split from his model fiancee Blac Chyna in August (14), prompting speculation they are a new couple.
However, Tyga is adamant there is nothing romantic about his liaisons with Jenner.
Asked if he and the model are dating, he tells Vibe magazine, "Kylie? Nah. See the thing about Kylie... I've known Kylie and the whole family for four years. I introduced Chyna to Kim about a year ago. So everybody's been cool, but like it's just so hard, their world is different.
"If somebody wanna hang out, cool, I'm not opposed to hanging out with somebody. I hang out with her (Kylie), her sister (Kendall), I hang out with Scott (Disick, Kourtney Kardashian's boyfriend) sometimes, I hang out with Khloe sometimes. But people wanna take the situation (with Kylie) to the next level."
The denial comes a week after Tyga appeared to have reconciled with Blac Chyna, the mother of his young son King Cairo, after she posted an intimate snap of the former couple in bed. The photo was later deleted.
Rapper Tyga has rekindled his romance with model Blac Chyna, two months after the couple called off its engagement. The beauty shared an intimate snap of the tattooed Rack City hitmaker kissing her neck in a post on Instagram.com on Thursday (16Oct14), and, in the accompanying caption, she made a reference to her curvy backside by quoting parts of Nicki Minaj's hit song Anaconda, writing, "by the way he said I'm not missin no meals (sic)".
However, the image was deleted just moments later.
Tyga split from Chyna, the mother of his young son King Cairo, in August (14) and was recently linked to Kim Kardashian's younger half-sister, Kylie Jenner.
Ironically, Kardashian counts Chyna among her closest girlfriends.
Model and actress Kelly Brook has broken her silence about the latest nude celebrity hacking scandal, almost a month after she became a victim of tech crooks who have leaked candid shots of stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. As FBI agents continue with an investigation into the photo scandal, Brook has joined the likes of fellow victims Lawrence, Meagan Good and Mary Elizabeth Winstead in speaking out about the "sex crime".
In a tweet posted on Thursday (09Oct14), Brook writes, "My Lawyer is currently dealing with 18 Women who have all had their iCloud hacked. It is a Sex Crime and a complete invasion of Privacy.
"We will find this person and they will be prosecuted. Not having it. Some very young innocent women have been targeted it's so wrong."
Cyber criminals have been releasing the explicit snaps in waves since late August (14), when private pictures of stars were stolen from cloud storage accounts and posted online.
Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Winona Ryder, Gabrielle Union and Vanessa Hudgens are also among the famous females who have also been targeted in recent weeks, and now former Doctor Who Matt Smith and Hulk Hogan's son Nick have become the first guys linked to the scandal.
Jonah Hill poked fun at an ex-girlfriend while picking up GQ magazine's International Man of the Year honour in London on Tuesday night (02Sep14).
The Wolf of Wall Street star took aim at his sixth grade love while accepting the style trophy from Bradley Cooper. Hill said, "Emily, my first girlfriend... You broke my heart and left it shattered. It was really sad. I know you were young and love is wild and you grow apart, but I'm GQ International Man of the f**king Year!"
The twice Oscar-nominated star joined Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Pharrell Williams, Van Morrison, New Order, new Doctor Who Peter Capaldi, racing driver Lewis Hamilton and Paulo Nutini among the big style winners, while Johnny Depp presented punk veteran Iggy Pop with GQ's Icon Award at the Royal Opera House.
And the women weren't left out - Kim Kardashian West, who was joined on the red carpet by her husband Kanye West, picked up the Woman of the Year prize and stunned in a custom-designed haute couture Ralph & Russo gown. Reminding the world her full name is now Kim Kardashian West, the reality TV star said, "I want to thank GQ for making me Woman of the Year, and my husband for making me feel like woman of the year every day."
Among those handing over the top prizes at the ceremony Lindsay Lohan, Bradley Cooper, Gerard Butler, Rita Ora, Cara Delevingne, Daisy Lowe, Bob Geldof, Pippa Middleton and author E.L. James, who presented her Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan with a Breakthrough Award.

Even Kendall Jenner has to admit that the Kardashian name is not always taken seriously. The young model spoke to The Cut and said that she has specifically asked big sister Kim Kardashian to stay away from some of her runway shows. The media circus that comes along with the reality star is not always conducive to a high fashion career.
"I was like, 'You know what? I want to be high fashion. I want to be taken seriously..."
Jenner goes on to say that people assume her family ties made it easy for her career to take off, but the truth is that she had to work hard (even harder than other models, she argues) to get many in the fashion industry to work with her.
Whatever she's doing, it's working. Jenner just covered Love Magazine, and recently became the new face of Givenchy.

Kim Basinger's model daughter Ireland Baldwin is paying tribute to her mum's breakout role in 9 1/2 Weeks in a new ad campaign for clothing brand Rampage. The 18-year-old daughter of Basinger and ex-husband Alec Baldwin is the face of the fashion company's autumn (14) collection, making it her very first solo campaign.
The ads feature the blonde beauty wearing a series of dresses, fitted outerwear and fitted tops, but in one shot, she pays homage to her mum's sultry role in the 1986 erotic drama.
In the photograph, Baldwin recreates Basinger's famous image behind window blinds, sensually posing in the shadows and eating strawberries.
The young model credits her famous mum with encouraging her to pursue a career in front of the camera, telling Access Hollywood, "My mum was the one who kind of told me that modelling can really boost your confidence... Growing up in the spotlight has definitely made me stronger."
Baldwin follows in the footsteps of supermodels Petra Nemcova, Bar Refaeli, Gisele Bundchen and Irina Shayk, who have all been featured in Rampage campaigns.
Kim Kardashian's half-sister Kylie Jenner was slapped with two traffic violations on Monday (14Jul14) after she and a friend were pulled over by police in Los Angeles, reports TMZ.com. The young reality TV star was ticketed for having illegal tinted windows on her G-Wagon and driving with a teenager as a passenger, which is illegal for new 16-year-old drivers in California.
Reality TV star Brody Jenner has admitted his romances with co-stars Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari were fake. Jenner, the son of Olympian Bruce Jenner and stepbrother of Kim Kardashian, shot to fame on hit teen reality series The Hills.
During the show's run, Brody was linked to The Hills' leading ladies Conrad and Cavallari, but he now reveals their relationships were given a romantic angle to make good TV.
He says, "Lauren and I have always been just friends. We worked together on a show called The Hills where we had to pretend like we were dating but we never dated.
"I dated Kristin when we were very young... but during (The Hills) when we filmed, Kristin and I did not date, we were not hooking up."
Jenner's revelations come after another The Hills star, Audrina Patridge, admitted producers would manipulate situations to boost drama.
She said, "In the beginning, a lot of it was real. As it went on, it was very manipulated and guided."
U.S. soap opera The Young And The Restless was the one to beat at the Daytime Emmys on Sunday (22Jun14) after scooping six of the prizegiving's top awards.
Currently in its 41st season, the programme has spent 25 years as the number one rated daytime drama in America, and it proved its longevity by landing a handful of awards at the Los Angeles ceremony, including its eighth win for Outstanding Drama Series. Stars Billy Miller (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series), Amelia Heinle (Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series), and Hunter King (Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series) all won in the top acting categories, while the show also took the trophies for Outstanding Drama Series Writing Team and Outstanding Special Class Special for The Young and The Restless: The Jeanne Cooper Tribute, in honour of the actress who starred on the show for 40 years and died last May (13).
On Friday (20Jun14), The Young and The Restless earned three additional Daytime Creative Arts Emmys for a total haul of nine awards. Another long-running soap, Days of Our Lives, earned multiple wins, including Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Eileen Davidson, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Eric Martsolf, and Chandler Massey for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series.
Other winners included Steve Harvey (Outstanding Game Show Host for Family Feud and Outstanding Talk Show - Informative for his self-titled programme), Ellen DeGeneres (Outstanding Talk Show - Entertainment and five additional Creative Arts Emmys), and Dr. Mehmet Oz and newlywed Katie Couric, who tied as Outstanding Talk Show Host.
Comedienne Kathy Griffin hosted the prizegiving at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, and kicked off the night by mocking reality TV star Kris Jenner, who attended the awards show last year (13) on the same day her daughter Kim Kardashian gave birth to baby North West.
Singer Lana Del Rey has brushed off rumours she scored a big payday when she agreed to perform at Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's pre-wedding party on Friday (23May14), insisting she would never charge friends for her time. Rapper West asked the Summertime Sadness star to stage a surprise set for his bride-to-be at the couple's celebratory dinner at the Palace of Versailles, and the special performance reportedly brought Kardashian to tears.
Reports suggested Del Rey earned at least six figures for the three-song gig, while one article alleged she had pocketed a whopping $2.8 million (£1.75 million) for the show.
However, the singer set the record straight on Wednesday (28May14) as she arrived back in Los Angeles from Europe, telling TMZ.com, "It's not true... I would never let a friend pay me to sing at a wedding."
Del Rey has a special place in the couple's hearts - West hired an orchestra to perform her track Young & Beautiful when he proposed at AT&T Stadium in San Francisco, California on Kardashian's 33rd birthday last year (13).
West and his reality TV star bride tied the knot in Florence, Italy on Saturday (24May14).
