Kylie Jenner just put those “Are they or aren’t they?” rumors to bed, because she’s still dating rapper Tyga

In her first appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” set to air Monday, the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star was peppered with questions about her romance and clarified her relationship status with the “Stimulated” emcee.

“I don’t know what’s going on, all I hear is that you’re with Tyga, you’re not with Tyga?” DeGeneres pointedly asked the 18-year-old in a clip posted online Wednesday.


“No, honestly people have it all wrong,” Jenner replied as DeGeneres urged her to straighten it out. “No. We’re not broken up.”

“We, just honestly, we became best friends before anything happened, so I think that that’s awesome,” Jenner said. “And we’re just like. I don’t know. Hanging out. Living life.”

And there you have it, straight from the horse’s — ahem, Jenner’s — pumped-up mouth. Incidentally, the reality star was there to tout her new lip product, Kylie Lip Kit.

The line of questioning came just after Jenner and Tyga had dominated gossip headlines since Friday with news of a split. Though neither camp made an official statement about the ubiquitous reports, the two reportedly broke up on the rapper’s 26th birthday but reconciled soon after — assuming they ever even broke up at all.


The social-media maven also posted several images of them together on Instagram and Snapchat, accompanied Tyga to Justin Bieber’s American Music Awards after-party on Sunday and joined her beau and momager Kris Jenner for a belated birthday celebration on Monday.
