Kylie Jenner and Tyga are back on–at least, that’s the latest dispatch from the confusing front lines of this particular battle of wills. After more or less breaking up over the weekend, and then kind of getting back together in the wake of Sunday’s American Music Awards show, Kylie Jenner and Tyga have made their reunion official. According to several reports, though, Kylie has a list of demands for her boyfriend.
Kylie Jenner and Tyga had a rocky stretch this past spring, but looked to have pushed past it and were even discussing the possibility of marriage as recently as last week. That all changed, though, when Kylie allegedly found evidence that Tyga had been cheating. The evidence, combined with the fact that 18-year-old Kylie seemed to be the sole member of her family who appreciated 26-year-old Tyga, led to a quick breakup on Friday.
By Sunday, the pair were on slightly thicker ice, though Kylie ditched Tyga–who does occasionally rap–at the AMAs, in favor of sister Kendall. The two were spotted holding hands and looking “comfortable” at Justin Bieber’s after party.
The latest reconciliation between Kylie Jenner and Tyga marks the second time that Kylie’s taken him back. And, while a source recently confirmed that “they’re very much back on,” this time looks to be different from the other–which is how Kylie wants it.
“Nothing is really set in stone. It’s kind of up in the air,” said the source. “Kylie keeps throwing everybody off, including all of their friends….Everybody’s super confused by it. There’s not really an answer one way or another, but without question, the ball is in her court. Things are definitely shaky.”
Part of the reason why? The pressure of constant celebrity has a noticeable effect on the pair. “[Kylie Jenner and Tyga are] not necessarily a great couple together,” a friend of Kylie’s confirmed for People. “A lot of their friends love them separately, but it’s also one of those things where they might be great people as individuals, but they act differently when they’re together. They’re not as carefree.”
Which is why, a third source told E!, Kylie made Tyga beg for forgiveness: she wanted to shift the dynamic and tilt the power of the relationship toward herself. “She was getting advice from her older and wiser sisters on what to do,” said that source. “[Kylie] thought the plan would work and he would be begging her back, and he was. Kim and Khloe Kardashian were telling her she needs to make him respect her and always make him be a little more into her than she is him. And it worked like a charm.”
