Young Money rapper Tyga is in damage control today after a major scandal rocked his camp yesterday.
A popular celebrity blog published what they say are leaked screenshots and photos of text message correspondence between the Compton rapper and a transgender model.
The text messages dated back to when Tyga was in a relationship with his baby mother Blac Chyna. The model claimed that they have been engaged in a relationship for over three years.
Tyga has since responded to the accusations via Twitter and his lawyer Lee Hutton.
“Smh. The devil is working hard today. Lol,” T-Raww tweeted on Monday.

King Gold Chains also responded on Instagram saying, “My focus is always on the positive and building up those around me. I’ll never understand why people choose hate and negativity over anything else.”

While Tyga didn’t denied the photos are real, he said that he was not the one who sent them and that they are an attempt to damage his brand and “maliciously shame.”
“The allegations are false and socially irresponsible during a time when many Americans are celebrating equality,” Hutton told TMZ.
Sources close to the “Ayo” rapper told us that he is in shock and sent his camp in full on damage control mode.
“This one did shook him up because if you look in history all the rappers who got caught up in similar type scandal had their careers derailed,” Urban Islandz sources said.
“Everyone around him is doing the most that they can to make this whole thing go away including his lawyer. The whole situation is messy and unfortunate at a time when he just released his new album,” our source added.
Tyga’s girlfriend Kylie Jenner has not responded to the accusations but you can only imagine what’s going through her mind right now.
