Playing Tyga Opens Up About His And Kylie Jenner's Controversial Age Difference, Jokes About Marriage and Pregnancy Rumors

Tyga is finally speaking out about his and Kylie Jenner's age difference.

The 26-year-old rapper and the 18-year-old reality star -- who went public with their relationship last August -- have been deemed a controversial couple due to their significant age gap.

The "Baller Alert" rapper sat down with Shay Diddy for an interview on San Francisco's 106 KMEL radio station on Wednesday, where he got candid about the backlash he's received from dating someone eight years younger.

"It's a lot with me being older than her. I've been through a lot more things, so it's kinda like I can help her more with [dealing with the bashing] even though she's been more in the tabloid media limelight than I have been," he revealed. "But I can see that because I know what type of person she is. I know what she deals with."

Tyga explained that even though the duo's relationship has been in the spotlight for quite some time now, haters haven't lightened up.

"It's hard to talk about [the age difference] because people are gonna bash," he said. "I didn't understand it though because I'm like, 'This person is a really good person.'"

"It's almost like the devil keeps trying to tell me something to not follow God. Just let God do what he wanna do," he continued. "So, I don't really know how to speak on that, because it's just something I have to deal with. A lot of things in life you just gotta deal with it as it comes."

T-Raww added that one of his biggest frustrations is that the people who are quick to judge don't look into the full story.

"People just read headlines," he said. "People don't actually look into stuff or break down people's characters or realize their busy schedules or whatever it is. So much is being fed to people that they don't know what's good or bad. It's kinda hard to dissect somebody."

The rapper also talked about Valentine's Day, confirming that he was not the one who bought Jenner the diamond grill she sported in his Instagram snap -- she already owned it!

"We had fun," he said, as a big smirk appeared on his face. "We had a good day."

A good day, indeed!

On Thursday, Tyga and Jenner joked about engagement, marriage and pregnancy rumors while livestreaming a game, "Addressing Rumors With Tyga and Kylie," on the reality star's app.

"Are you pregnant?" Tyga asked his brunette beauty. "I think we need to address that rumor because I feel like everybody thinks you're pregnant and there's a new story every day about you being pregnant and being married and all this crazy stuff so you need to talk about those type of things."

"I'm not pregnant and I'm not married, 'cause you're slacking ...I'm just kidding," she joked. "Because I'm a f**king infant child, and I don't want to be married or have a baby right now!"

"No, you're a young woman, and you're very focused on a lot of things," Tyga sweetly replied.
