Tyga says he reached out to 14-year-old model Molly O’Malia in order to evaluate her musical skills, according to TMZ.
The rapper’s manager, Anthony Martini, says that Tyga reached out to O’Malia after his team discovered she was a musician with a large online fanbase.
As for her assertion that Tyga wanted to FaceTime her, Martini says that Tyga wanted to FaceTime with her to see her sing while he was in the studio with his producers.
O’Malia also says in one text published by TMZ that she is 17. According to the video TMZ posted yesterday, she is 14.

“I’m very upset that a story about Tyga, Kylie Jenner and me was published in OK! Magazine and I want people to know the truth,” the 14-year-old girl represented by Gloria Allred says in the video. “The truth is that Tyga contacted me first. He direct-messaged me on Instagram. I knew who he was, but I was surprised that he was contacting me. I thought that it could possibly be about my music but he did not mention that in his initial communication. I thought that was strange but I was thinking he would bring it up in his next message to me. However, he didn’t mention in the next message.”
The girl says that her feelings about the communication changed.
“I began to feel uncomfortable when he asked me to FaceTime with him,” she says. “He asked me to FaceTime three times but I didn’t do it. Because of my discomfort with why he wanted to communicate with me, I quickly stopped responding.”
The girl says that the information OK! magazine published did not come from her.
“I never sent the communication between Tyga and me to OK! Magazine and I don’t know how they obtained them,” she says. “I would never have allowed OK! Magazine or any other magazine to use them.
“It is also upsetting to me that OK! Magazine never even contacted my mom or me to check the facts to see if what they’re publishing was true,” she adds. “I’m speaking out today because I don’t want what happened to me to happen to any other young girl.”
