After yesterday’s press conference in which Gloria Allred came to the defense of a 14-year-old girl who was written about in OK! for communicating with 26-year-old Tyga, the folks at TMZ reached out to the aspiring rapper’s reps for comment.
Here’s what they had to say:
Tyga’s manager Anthony Martini tells TMZ the rapper reached out to 14-year-old Molly O’Malia after his team found out she had a pretty strong musical following online and thought she might be a candidate for a Last Kings Records project ... his record label. Tyga claims it was strictly business and completely PG. As for her age — according to text messages obtained by TMZ ... Molly mentions she is 17.
The report goes on:
The manager says in the back and forth Tyga specifically asked her to send him some music, adding things never got “uncomfortable” as she claimed. The rep says Tyga wanted to FaceTime Molly to talk business and see her sing ... as he sat in the studio with his producers.
I find it interesting that Tyga is now deciding what is and isn’t comfortable for a 14-year-old girl! I also find it interesting that Molly never mentioned communicating with Tyga’s producers.
Here’s part of her statement from Monday’s press conference.:
“Tyga contacted me first. He direct messaged me on Instagram...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. However, he didn’t mention it in the next message. I began to feel uncomfortable when he asked me to FaceTime with him. He asked me to FaceTime with him three times, but I didn’t do it. Because of my discomfort with why he wanted to communicate with me, I stopped responding.”
Emma Roberts and Evan Peters are definitely back together, which makes me happy for reasons I can’t quite articulate. Why do we “root” for the celebrities we root for? Why do fools fall in love? Why do photos of Rita Ora on vacation in Miami keep showing up in my feeds? All unanswerable questions.
Anyway, Page Six is reporting that Roberts and Peters, whose love I support for unknowable reasons, “spent New Year’s together” just “six months after breaking off their engagement.”
Roberts and Peters stayed in a $4,500-a-night Airbnb in Malibu, Calif., to ring in 2016, we’re told. They strolled hand-in-hand on the beach and were seen at a local Starbucks and at the Malibu Country Mart.
Nothing says true love like a little Starbucks and Stroll.
Let’s revisit Madeleine’s Dirt Bag from last night for a moment.
