Is Kylie Jenner engaged to Tyga? The 19-year-old reality TV star has been seen flashing a huge diamond ring about town this week; now, in a new video, Kylie finally shares what the ring means–and all but confirms her intention to be with her 26-year-old boyfriend for a long, long time.
Kylie, who also debuted her “hip grandmother” look during the 2016 New York Fashion Week, wore a noticeably huge diamond ring on her left hand during nearly every public appearance over the past few days:
The ring sparked intense gossip about the status of Kylie and Tyga’s relationship–something that Kylie herself decided to address, more or less, with a recent Snapchat video:
As Hollywood Life pointed out, Tyga may have bitten off far more than he can chew with this particular precedent: Kanye’s engagement ring for Kim Kardashian contained a 15-karat cushion-cut Lorraine Schwartz diamond, and it’s entirely likely that Kylie will now expect something bigger. And it’s just as likely that that something might be well out of Tyga’s reach, given that the occasional entertainer is reportedly $1,000,000 in debt to Kylie, still facing down landlords who claim he owes them back rent, and hasn’t had a hit since dropping “Rack City” back in 2011.
(Though it’s not like there isn’t further precedent for this: Kris Jenner’s boy toy Corey Gamble reportedly bought Kris a diamond engagement ring with her own money last Christmas–one that she picked out for herself ahead of time.)
At the same time, it’s not like Tyga didn’t know what he was getting into when he gave a promise ring to Kylie. As Bustle put it, ” You don’t give someone such a huge sparkler like that promising them a major commitment if you’re not serious about that person, right?” At the same time, then, it’s not like Kylie didn’t know what she was doing when she accepted Tyga’s pledge. Rumors have suggested that the pair were either married or expecting a baby together at least three different times this summer alone.
