Kylie Jenner and Tyga are allegedly “at war” over her gigantic new diamond ring–and insiders are speculating whether the stone will be the beginning of the end for the troubled pair. Mere days after the “Is Kylie Jenner engaged?” question spread across the internet like alien abduction rumors in a supermarket checkout line, questions about whether Tyga resorted to unsavory means to pay for it have both Kylie Jenner and Tyga whistling and looking elsewhere.
It was late in 2015 when the “Kylie Jenner engaged” rumors sparked a veritable firestorm of speculation, thanks to Kylie sharing the following provocative shot on her hugely popular Instagram page:
However, devotées of Kylie Jenner’s Instagram page noted that the 18-year-old often updates with photos of new bling. For example, Kylie shared this image of a vintage watch just two days after the whole “Kylie Jenner engagement ring” rumor blew up:

And the 18-year-old herself was quick to answer the “Is Kylie Jenner engaged” question with a strong no. Kylie took to her personal website to state that the ring was merely a Christmas gift, and that it didn’t signify anything more than an especially happy holiday.
Currently, though, the rumor is that Kylie Jenner and Tyga are butting heads over her flashy ways. A Mirror report claims that both Kylie Jenner and Tyga are “terrified” to have the ring appraised, since doing so could raise questions about where cash-strapped Tyga came up with the money for the jewelry. According to an insider in that report, the rest of Kylie’s family “advised her to get [the ring] appraised because they think that it could be fake.”
And Kylie, of course, is just as “terrified” to learn that the ring might be a fake. Reports that she has loaned Tyga an accrued $500,000 over the past several years have led many observers to wonder about whether Tyga can continue to afford giving such extravagant gifts to his apparently much richer girlfriend.
Tyga, who enjoys petting zoos, is also dealing with rumors about whether he also bought a ring for transgender model Mia Isabella–with whom Tyga allegedly had an affair before Kylie Jenner became legal last summer. Just hours after Kylie shared her Christmas bling ring photo, Mia uploaded a shot of her own diamond ring–complete with the caption “Anyone can do that. He bought me one too except I’ve had mine for years.”
Though Isabella has since played down any connection between her ring and Kylie’s post, the curiously timed social media update has allegedly worsened the tension between Kylie Jenner and Tyga. Said one source, with close ties to both parties, “These days it seems like everything causes a fight between them.”
