Tyga admits messaging 14-year-old model but denies it ever got “uncomfortable” as it was business
The 14-year-old, who waived her anonymity to reveal herself as Molly, gave a press conference about their messages on Monday and was represented by Gloria Allred
Tyga has admitted to talking to 14-year-old model Molly O’Malia, but it was purely for business, according to a report.
The Rack City rapper, who is dating 18-year-old beauty Kylie Jenner, claims that he only reached out to the teen because he was scouting new talent.
Tyga’s manager Anthony Martini told TMZ that Tyga personally got in touch with O’Malia after his team came across her singing online.
The team are said to have put her forward as a candidate to feature on a Last Kings Records project – which is Tyga’s label.
Tyga’s manager denied that it ever got “uncomfortable” between the two as they messaged back and forth, with the hip hop star asking her for some music.
The rep also added that Tyga was keen to FaceTime the teen model so they could listen to her sing, while he was in the studio with producers.
The teen model who was claimed to have sent texts to Tyga, supposedly leading to his brief split from Kylie Jenner, has spoken out.
The ninth grade youngster, who identified herself simply as Molly at a press conference on Monday, appeared alongside celebrity attorney Gloria Allred and fought to contain her tears as she read out a statement on camera.
She decided to waive her anonymity to rubbish claims Tyga cheated on Kylie with her, insisting they never even met – and she never gave permission for her texts to be printed.
The messages were cited in a December 28 edition of OK Magazine, alongside a pixelated photo of Molly.
She claims many of her friends and family were able to identify her from the photo, and she soon received a “negative” reaction – having a huge social media fanbase of her own.
Attorney Allred claimed the teen had “thousands” of followers, and said during the live stream – published by TMZ: “She feels that she needs to speak out and so does her mom, people need to be accountable.”
Allred claims the teen was wrongfully portrayed as a youngster keen to have a relationship with Tyga, and didn’t rule out legal action.
Molly went on to insist she didn’t pass on the messages she sent to Tyga to the magazine, and added: “Even though OK magazine pixelated my face and did not use my name, a lot of people could tell it was me.”
She added: “As a result of the story and the photo, I received a lot of negative attention, not only from people in my own state but from all over the place. I don’t deserve the negative attention I have been getting as a result of this photo.
“I would never have allowed OK Magazine or any other magazine to use them.
“I am speaking out today because I don’t want what happened to me to happen to any other young girl.”
Molly’s mother also spoke to defend her daughter.
“Molly decided the best thing to do was to stand up for herself,” she said. “I’m very proud of her to have the courage to come today and do this. I love you Molly, and I’m proud to be your mom.”
While it was claimed Tyga and Kylie had split up at the end of last year, the pair have shared loved up snaps since as they’re spotted looking closer than ever.
