The Kylie and Tyga split is official, and, for the third time in a calendar year, the two ex-lovers have taken to the press to try and outmaneuver each other. Kylie was the first to strike, telling a high-profile publication that she was simply sick and tired of having Tyga lie to her face about his alleged extracurricular activities. Tyga, meanwhile, is on record saying he’ll always love Kylie, but Kylie’s legions of fans appear to be skeptical.
(In case you’re keeping score at home, the first Kylie and Tyga split came last May; Tyga won Kylie back with a picnic and a song. They broke up again last November, supposedly because of Tyga’s cheating ways.)
Kylie and Tyga split last week, according to the earliest rumors, though their breakup wasn’t confirmed until two days ago. They had apparently been on the outs for some time: Tyga hadn’t appeared on Kylie’s social media pages in over a month, and Tyga seemed to be preoccupied with his ex Blac Chyna (currently Angela Kardashian)’s forthcoming nuptuals with Kylie’s half-brother Rob Kardashian–to say nothing of the surprise baby announcement that Rob and Angela recently sprang. (Who knew that “Keeping up with the Kardashians” really meant keeping track of their growing family’s many connections?)
Now, sources close to Kylie have dished to People about the reason for the third split, and, judging by what they said, it seems this breakup is likely to last. Kylie hasn’t been able to trust Tyga for awhile, according to People‘s article; as a result, the two “were fighting a ton over stupid, petty bullsh!t,” and Kylie knew that “[Tyga] was lying repeatedly to her face,” an insider alleged. “She just couldn’t take it anymore. She couldn’t trust a word he said.
“She’s caught him lying and talking to other girls behind her back before, and this was the last straw,” a separate source said, describing an earlier breakup. “[Kylie] feels super betrayed and is just so pissed off, damaged and hurt about it.”
Meanwhile, an E! report on Tyga’s state of mind finds the 26-year-old with nothing but love for his now 18-year-old ex-girlfriend. When asked if age played a part in the breakup (and it’s worth pointing out that the pair had been dating for two years), Tyga, whose biggest claim to fame is now being Kylie Jenner’s ex-boyfriend, was circumspect.
“Um,” he began. “Uh, I think, you know, we’re both just focusing on our lives, our individual lives right now, you know? Sometimes things don’t work out. But, you know, I love her.”
When asked if there would “always be love between the two,” Tyga became more direct: “For sure,” he said.
In addition, E!’s source stated that the third Kylie and Tyga split was “a long time coming,” and that the Tygster is doing “good.”
