Tyga Seemingly Shut Down Rumors About Kylie Jenner's Baby

Tyga wants to make something clear: he is not Stormi's father. On Twitter earlier this week, the rapper reached out to his millions of followers to let them know that he didn't father Kylie Jenner's newborn child. He wants people to stop spreading lies and falsehoods about Kylie Jenner and himself.

While Tyga doesn't mention Kylie Jenner in the tweet, it's easy to read between the lines. It also rebukes what Tyga claimed back in November. On Snapchat in a quickly deleted picture, the rapper took a screenshot of a news report announcing Kylie Jenner's forthcoming pregnancy with Travis Scott's child and said "that's my kid." It's unclear what made him think it was his child at the time and what changed his mind afterward, but Tyga is completely clearing the air now. As it was previously reported, Travis Scott is the father of 7-week-old Stormi. Tyga doesn't have anything to do with it.

Tyga and Kylie Jenner were an item for nearly three years before they called it quits last year. Jenner started dating Travis Scott in April, with their one year anniversary looming ahead. Tyga opened up about his break-up with Kylie Jenner on The Breakfast Club in July. Here's what the rapper said.

She's younger than me, so she's dealing with perception. For her, growing up how she grew up, image and perception is everything. You got a bunch of people pulling from you, and you're trying to develop as a woman... I like to keep the mystique, but I knew that's kind of how she made her money. It's not for me, bro. I mean, when it was good, it was good. When it was bad, it was really bad.

Kylie Jenner gave birth to her first child, Stormi, on February 1st. While the model is typically pretty open about everything and anything in her life (much to Tyga's ultimate dissatisifaction), she decided to keep the pregnancy a secret for as long as she could -- though rumors were spread last year. Since her pregnancy, Kylie Jenner has been much more forthcoming about her life as a new mom. She continues to post several photos on Instagram, and she isn't shy about showing some snaps from her baby as well, particularly on her one month birthday. Now that's she's seven weeks into motherhood, however, Kylie's looking to get back into bikini body shape for the summer. She posted a picture of her fit stomach to prove she's ready.

Meanwhile, Tyga released his newest studio album, BitchImTheShit2, in July, which is a sequel to his 2011 mixtape, #BitchImThe Shit. The rapper also joined the newest season of MTV's Scream as a series regular. It was once expected to premiere this month, but the air date currently remains TBA.
