The world is familiar with several of these “secret love connections”, but the most recent couple to make claims of not being in a relationship are Kylie Jenner and Tyga. The relationship initially received a lot of press considering Tyga had begun dating Kylie while she was underage and he was very legal. Media flocked to the couple even more once rumors surfaced that the couple had moved in together very shortly after the nasty public break up between Tyga and his video vixen ex-girlfriend Blacc Chyna. After all the negative energy being sent Tyga’s way in regards to him dating and living with an under-aged girl, it is no surprise that both Kylie and Tyga always denied that they were anything other than friends.

Since his debut and being signed to Young Money Entertainment, he has dropped unforgettable singles to compliment his album.
11. Tyga’s Real Name
We all have grown to know and love Kylie’s boyfriend by the name he has presented to the public as his stage name, which is Tyga. However, very few times has he mentioned the acronym behind Tyga. Also, few interviewers rarely ask the meaning behind his name. Tyga stated his name is an acronym for “Thank you God always”. Tyga has no issue answering anyone who asks the meaning for his name and heartfelt acronym. Also, Tyga’s government name, that many people in the world are not even familiar with, is Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson.
10. Kylie Has Coin Too
So, the world could not possibly assume that the daughter of Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner would be anything less than an heiress to wealth and a little businesswoman herself. Kylie, at the young age of 18-years old, has a net worth of over 3 million dollars. Of course some of her millions were inherited by just being born into the right family, but in other aspects Kylie aspires to be an actress. She now models and is very much into makeup and fashion. Therefore, we can definitely look to see the businesswoman aspect of the maturing Kylie in the near future. And who can blame her with a family of entrepreneurs and business women such as her older sisters.

This craze swept through the media like wildfire, and all because of the attention that was given to Kylie when she had lip enhancement surgery.
