“Rack City” rapper Tyga lied about being in a relationship with transgender model Mia Isabella, she claimed on Twitter Sunday. The two dated for three years, even though Kylie Jenner’s ex never confirmed the relationship. When the “rumor” came up during his interview on “The Breakfast Club” Thursday, the entertainer seemingly got nervous and said “no.”
Co-host Angela Yee is friends with Mia Isabella, but didn’t mention her by name on the show because she didn’t know if the model wanted to be swept up into the media again.
“What people don’t understand is it doesn’t matter if my name is mentioned. [I’m] the only transgender woman publicly connected to him so any mention of that situation instantly creates headlines,” Mia Isabella told International Business Times in an email Sunday.
Their relationship, which lasted from 2012 to 2015, supposedly became public because of the Kardashians. “… Very powerful people who control the media (AKA Kardashians) allegedly started planting stories and rumors and I was thrown into the mix,” she said. “I was being bullied into silence with legal threats and extortion attempts to silence me with ‘compensated confidentiality,’ which I did not agree to.”
Now, Tyga and the model are no longer on speaking terms. “I don’t talk to him anymore after that s— storm,” Mia Isabella told IBT.
In one of her tweets, the activist said she stayed quiet about their sexual relationship because Tyga threatened suicide. She wanted to release a joint statement, but he said he would take his life.
Mia Isabella said she put her feelings aside to protect Tyga’s life.
“At that point I broke down and fed into this Stockholm syndrome,” she said. “I was forced into protecting someone else’s life and career out of fear of him taking his own life knowing the staggering statistics of suicide rates among LGBT youth.”
