Are you trying to tell us something Tyga? The rapper posted a cryptic Instagram message Jan. 6 that has some wondering if it’s in response to his recent controversy over allegedly texting a 14-year-old girl. See what he had to say in his first public words since the scandal broke.
Tyga, 26, is breaking his silence with his first message since he was busted for allegedly sending inappropriate texts to teenager Molly O’Malia. The 26-year-old rapper posted a mysterious Instagram caption to his social media fans, saying “They don’t want you to win,” next to photo of himself standing in a driveway with luxury cars with a bummed out look on his face.
There’s a lot of ways we can interpret his “They don’t want you to win,” statement. One of which is the way he saw things, that he was just reaching out to new talent to help mentor. As we EXCLUSIVELY told you, Tyga told girlfriend Kylie Jenner, 18, that he did nothing wrong because he only sought out online sensation Molly to possibly sign her for a record deal.

“He was in the mindset that she could be the next best thing. Tyga was thinking dollars – that’s it! He doesn’t think Kylie should have a problem with this at all. After all, Kylie’s always been riding Tyga, telling him to make more money and encouraging him to be a huge player in the rap biz,” our source revealed Jan. 5, adding “It was all business on his end and that’s exactly what he told Kylie of this situation.”
While that may have been Tyga’s story, it wasn’t what the 14-year-old had to say at a press conference Jan. 4 when she broke down in tears alongside attorney Gloria Allred. “I thought that it could possibly be about my music, but he did not mention that in his initial communication with me,” Molly said, adding she became “uncomfortable” once Tyga started to press her for FaceTime conversations. She’s now suing OK magazine for their Dec. cover story about the texts that made her feel “sexualized,” but isn’t suing the rapper.
