(AllHipHop News) California rapper Tyga was caught up in controversy this week when text messages he allegedly sent to a transgender actress leaked to the internet. The supposed phone exchange ignited rumors The Gold Album creator was cheating on his reported girlfriend Kylie Jenner.
Tyga’s team has since denied the nude pictures were sent to Mia Isabella, and the former porn star has released her own statement to VH1 about the issue. Isabella states:
It’s very sad that the idea of a man loving a trans person has to be considered a scandal when all people are equal – love always wins doesn’t it? I live in a world in my mind where everything is a fairy tale of love. Saddening to see small-minded thoughts travel so quickly like wildfire not knowing if its true or not.
It’s like wave crashing over me washing over me to see masses of humanity rise with pitch forks blindly following. Are we not all equal? Am I not an American with the right to love and live as I choose with whoever I choose? If a celebrated man loves a transgender woman or possibly did that’s news? It shouldn’t be news it should be normal for anyone and everyone to be allowed to love who they choose.
This person is not the man that I love but I have loved a few incredible and celebrated men in my life. I live my live in the open courageous and brave in my truth. I’ve been blessed to live in a time where my freedom has allowed me to create the woman I am today in my own image. If only everyone could be so brave. Unconditional love is godlike spreading hate simply a set back for humanity itself.
Tyga’s lawyer has said the NSFW images were authentic, but the release of the pictures is part of a conspiracy to shame the “Rack City” rhymer. Lee Hutton contends the real person Tyga sent the photos to purposely betrayed him by leaking them to a gossip website. The FBI is said to be looking into how the pics made it online.
