Before beauty mogul and reality star Kylie Jenner moved on with Travis Scott, she was all about another rapper, Tyga. It was Jenner’s first public romance, and it began with online birthday shout-outs that led to people wondering, “are they or aren’t they?” Eventually, the two lovebirds confirmed they were a thing, and it was hard to spot one without the other as “Kyga” was officially born.

The duo’s bold fashion sense made them eye candy for photographers, and their lavish gifts and drama made their love story all the more interesting for Jenner’s many fans. Like so many young celebrity romances, this wasn’t one without its share of controversy and feuding, particularly with Tyga’s angry baby mama. Their romance eventually came to a screeching halt but not before a lot of photos were taken of the couple, as well as a few juicy KUWTK storylines.

Let us take a trip down memory lane to revisit young love in the age of Instagram.

NOVEMBER 2011: MY SUPER SWEET 16

In 2011, Tyga performed at Kendall Jenner's Sweet 16 birthday bash, driving the crowd of teens and pre-teens to throw their hands up in the air. Of course, big sisters Kim and Khloé were there to chaperone, as was younger sister, Kylie, who was just 14 at the time. No word on whether or not she was already flirting with the rapper back then.

AUGUST 2014: KYLIE AND TYGA’S FIRST PIC

Kendall, Chris Brown, Tyga, Kylie and others from their cool kids posse struck a pose on Kylie’s Instagram feed in a late night black and white selfie from Kylie’s 17th birthday party. Fans noticed it was the first time Kylie showed a pic of herself with Tyga, although they had appeared together before that.

Tyga was 24 at the time and engaged to Blac Chyna, but that relationship ended that same month, which was interesting timing. Tyga and Chyna’s son, King Cairo, was two at the time.

SEPTEMBER 2014: JUST RUMORS

Just in case anyone thought that Jenner had something to do with Tyga’s single status, the rapper posted a message (in all caps) on Twitter: “DON’T BELIEVE THE RUMOURS. BEEN FRIENDS WITH THE FAMILY FOREVER. WERE ALL JUST FRIENDS.”

OCTOBER 2014: HALLOWEEN

Jenner and Tyga spent Halloween together, documenting the day with a photo of the two of them in their costumes. Jenner was wearing sexy lace lingerie with a black leather coat over it, and he was a werewolf. This time, momager Kris Jenner shut down those dating rumors. She told Ryan Seacrest that her youngest daughter was just hanging out “with a little group of kids who have been around forever.” She also emphasized that the youngest Jenner was single.

NOVEMBER 2014: THANKFUL FOR EACH OTHER

When the club Greystone Manor refused 17-year-old Jenner entry, Tyga happened to pull out of his appearance at the club. Of course, it was all just speculation that the two incidents were connected, and Kylie was already getting pressure from her family to distance herself, which may have been why she wasn’t at Tyga’s 25th  birthday party. Despite rumors that Kylie’s family disapproved of her having a relationship with the older rapper, they still spent Thanksgiving together.

FEBRUARY 8, 2015: RAPPER BATTLES

Because Grammy afterparties don’t necessarily have strict minimum age entry requirements, Jenner attended one afterparty with big sisters Kendall and Khloé and, of course, Tyga.

Around that same time, Drake dropped the track “6pm In New York” which had the lyrics “You need to act your age and not your girls age.” He was clearly referring to Tyga, who had called Drake “fake” in an interview with Vibe Magazine.

FEBRUARY 14, 2015: KHLOÉ JOINS THE FRAY

Adding more fuel to this raging fire, model and actor Amber Rose, who had married and split from Wiz Khalifa (and had also dated Kim Kardashian’s hubby, Kanye!) sat down with 105.1’s The Breakfast Club and straight-up dissed Tyga saying,  “He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a 16-year old who just turned 17. Like, nah.”

Khloé didn’t let emotions get the best of her when she threw a few Tweets Rose’s way,“We get asked questions about people all the time and my sisters and I always take the high road and don’t answer. Truth is we don’t know these people. I don’t know Amber so why would I comment on her? I’m not going to comment on someone I don’t know. Please stop talking about us in interviews, mama. None of us talk about you.”

Mind you, all of this feuding was based merely on RUMORS that Jenner and Tyga were dating.

FEBRUARY 19 to 20, 2015: BREAKFAST DEBUNKING

Tyga once again denied the dating rumors by going on The Breakfast Club less than a week after Rose’s appearance. The rapper said that he did not “leave my family to be with Kylie. That’s ridiculous.”

The next day, it was Kanye West’s turn to go on The Breakfast Club, and it appeared like he stumbled over his answer when questioned about Tyga and Jenner. It was later revealed that his original answer was edited, and that he had said, “I think they in love.”

MARCH 24, 2015: WATCH ‘EM FIGHT!

Blac Chyna showed off her latest gifts  — a diamond Audemars Piguet watch and a hot pink convertible — on Instagram, but fans quickly noted  these were gifts given by Tyga from when they were still together. Kylie posted her own Instagram selfie, also wearing a diamond Audemars Piguet watch, within hours. The feud was officially on!

APRIL 2015: FEUD ROUND TWO!

When the #KylieJennerLipChallenge took over social media, Blac Chyna got in on the fun with a selfie of herself sporting a Kylie-esque hairstyle and bee-stung lips. She left fans guessing what the pic meant by opting not to post a comment or the Jenner hashtag.

A few days later, Chyna got a little more personal with a screenshot of text messages from someone named “King’s Father.” The screenshot showed him asking Chyna if he could come over, stating that he wanted to be a family again. Tyga didn't deny that the texts came from his phone, but he posted the cryptic caption, “Love is getting a tattoo of the person you love on one of the most painful areas of the human body.”

After months of rumors swirling, Kylie and Tyga made it official and posed as a couple on the red carpet at Cannes with Kylie’s mother, Kris, and Kris’ boyfriend Corey Gamble.

In July, Khloé once again came to the defense of her younger sibling. In an interview with Complex, she stated that Jenner “is not a normal 17 year-old,” since “other 17 year olds typically wear braces and have slumber parties.“  By comparison, Jenner was a teenager who went on business meetings in private jets. “It’s a rare circumstance, so let’s treat this as a special case,” she concluded.

AUGUST 9, 2015: HEY, BIG SPENDA!

For Jenner’s 18th birthday, Tyga bought his girlfriend a Ferrari 458 convertible worth $320,000. A few days later, he was whisked away to St. Barts on the Kardashian/ Jenner family vacation.

That same month, Tyga dropped “Stimulated,” which had the lyrics, “They say she young, I should’ve waited/ She’s a big girl, dog when she stimulated.” It didn’t take fans long to realize that the track was about Jenner, also because she was featured in the video for the song. Five days later, the two appeared side-by-side at the MTV Video Music Awards.

A few days later, Jenner and Tyga took to Snapchat to shut down those rumors as they prepared to attend Justin Bieber’s AMA afterparty. Just to cement the fact that the two were still together, Jenner even sat down on the Ellen DeGeneres show and told the audience that the rumors were a flat-out lie.

JANUARY 8, 2016: MORE TROUBLE IN PARADISE

Trouble brewed with reports from Us Weekly that Brazilian model Annalu Cardoso had been having sleepovers at Tyga’s house whenever Jenner was out of the country. Tyga met the buxom blonde on the set of one of his music videos, and she even appeared on his MTV2 show, Kingin’ with Tyga. This started a tiny Instagram war between the two women.

Meanwhile, Black Chyna had started dating Kylie’s brother, Rob Kardashian, in what could have been the latest shots fired in her ongoing feud with Jenner.

Jenner showed off a “T” tattoo on her ankle, obviously as an homage to her current beau, and Tyga showed his love by name-dropping Jenner in his new track “Feel Me” with Kanye West.  A few months later and Chyna took to social media to blast Tyga for failing to pay child support. The model also accused her baby daddy of cheating on Jenner with two women named “Terrell” and “Heather.” A new Instagram battle between Jenner and Chyna ensued.

He and I will always, always have a bond,” she said. “There was no crazy fight, we just decided … Well, I decided that I’m really young. I don’t want to look back in five years from now and feel like he took something from me when he’s really not that type of person.”
