Depending on your feelings for each, this is either: A) disappointing for you as an Iggy fan because you think she can do better, B) disappointing for you as a Tyga fan because you think he can do better, or C) disappointing for you as a reader of celebrity gossip because you think celebrity gossip can do better.
Iggy’s fraught history with both the music industry and romantic partners is well documented, as is Tyga’s tumultuous relationship with gossip magnets Blac Chyna (with whom he had a son) and Kylie Jenner (with whom he had a subpar KUWTK plotline).
