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.

Actress Sarah Jessica Parker has paid a fond tribute to iconic designer Oscar De La Renta, insisting his passing has "left a vacuum" in the world of fashion.
The Dominican style mogul died on Monday (20Oct14) and his death has been mourned by friends, fans and clients alike, with stars including Taylor Swift, Jennifer Garner, Kerry Washington, Vogue editor Anna Wintour and former U.S. First Lady Hillary Clinton sending their condolences to his family. Now Parker, who grew close to the designer over the years, has recalled the first time she started working with de la Renta, remembering how she enlisted Sex and the City stylist Patricia Field to find out if she could borrow a dress from his collection back in 2000.
She reveals that introduction was the start of a beautiful fashion affair between the pair and, in a moving tribute for The Hollywood Reporter, she writes, "I can't remember how I had the courage to be friends with him - he was so otherworldly in a way... "I wore countless beautiful dresses of his, dozens of them, fresh off the runway. It was always a momentous occasion in my life when he would build a dress for me - for the Emmys, the Met Ball, for my 40th birthday at the Plaza..."
Turning to his death, she adds: "When someone passes who's led a wonderfully long life, you hear the news and immediately think of his beloved wife and friends and, in this case, all those who work in his studio. "The reality of his absence means a momentous shift. There are wonderfully talented designers, emerging and upperclassmen, but he really was singular, and he has left a vacuum. Others will come along... But nobody is meant to fill the void. They can't. All I can think today is, 'That's it. That's done, that extraordinary moment in time that he created...' "The great news is, we all got so much out of knowing him. Thank goodness for all the time we did have. It's nice not to have regret - 'I wish I'd met him!' - He gave so much, and I think everybody who had the chance to be on the receiving end appreciated him."
She concludes, "It also needs to be said that there was no one more handsome."
Actor/comedian Russell Brand has courted controversy by urging British citizens to stop paying their taxes and mortgages in a bid to force the financial industry to cancel personal debts.
The Forgetting Sarah Marshall funnyman has been campaigning against democracy in recent months, calling for a revolution to change the way countries are run. He has attended a number of high-profile rallies over the last few days, joining protesters at an Occupy Wall Street demonstration in New York City and marching with nurses in London to demand higher wages for public sector workers. Brand has now stepped up his call for revolution by urging large numbers of people to stop paying their taxes and deliberately fall behind on their mortgage payments.
In an interview posted on Theguardian.com, Brand rants, "Cancel debt for ordinary people, your mortgages and credit cards. The financial industry cancelled trillions of dollars of debt... They just cancelled it. It just went away... Instead of cancelling debts of people with loads of money... cancel debt for your parents, you, the people you care about and love."
He adds, "Take away corporate power, don't cooperate, organize, don't pay your mortgage, don't pay your taxes. Not on your own, because you will go to prison. Organize. Watch this happen."
