In the story accompanying Khloe Kardashian’s ass-tastic Complex cover, she discusses the controversies surrounding her younger sister Kylie Jenner. As you’re probably aware, Jenner — who is still a few weeks away from turning 18 — has been unofficially dating the 25-year-old rapper Tyga since last year. It’s been speculated that Jenner was the one to come in between Tyga and his ex-girlfriend Blac Chyna, with whom he shares a child; a subject that caused Kardashian to get into a Twitter fight with Amber Rose earlier this year.
Complex brought up the feud with Amber Rose, as well as her younger sister’s questionable decision to get lip fillers at just 16 years old.
The criticism is that Kylie is only 17 years old.
Kylie might be 17, but from what Kylie has been through and the life she lives, she’s not a normal 17-year-old.
Do you feel that the criticisms of Kylie and Tyga’s relationship are fair?
I think at 16 I was probably f*cking someone that was in their 20s, for sure. I wouldn’t say I was even dating, probably just sleeping with them. But again Kylie is not a normal 17-year-old. You’re not gonna say, “Hey, so what are you doing this weekend?” and have her say, “Having a slumber party at my girlfriend’s,” or “Going to prom.” That’s not what Kylie does. Kylie is taking business meetings and bought her first house, or she’s going on a private plane with Karl Lagerfeld to take a meeting. That’s not even what people do in their 30s. It’s a rare circumstance, so let’s treat this as a special case.
Wait a minute, she was probably f*cking 20-somethings when she was 16? Not to sound slut-shamey or anything here, coming from someone who was also sexually active at around the same age, but if I was getting my swerve on with dudes in their 20s, I’m pretty sure I would remember that sh*t.
And, no. It’s not okay for a 16 or 17-year-old to be having sex with a 25-year-old, regardless of your special famous person circumstances. I’m pretty sure that’s just “the law.”
