*In the chorus line of his new single, “Oh Oh,” Rich Homie Quan declares “I aint gotta flex. N*gga i got it.”
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the term “flex,” it means showing off wealth that you don’t really have.
Apparently, former Young Money member Tyga doesn’t have a problem with flaunting his dwindling fortune.
According to an exclusive report from RadarOnline, the $320,000 Ferrari that the “Rack City” rapper gave to his reality star girlfriend for her 18th birthday was…leased. Really, dude? And if that wasn’t pitiful enough, it was leased in Kylie Jenner‘s name.
“He leased it,” an unnamed source said. “He couldn’t afford to actually buy one for her.”
While a 25-year-old unable to afford a $320,000 birthday gift for their significant other would usually be seen as completely normal, the website reports that it’s just another example of why the rest of the gold-digging Kardashian-Jenner clan is allegedly so concerned about the couple.
“Kylie’s sisters and mom are worried that Tyga is trying to cash in on being with her,” another source told Radar. “She’s young and they think she might not see what is going on.”
It should be noted that the story features some details that don’t jive with previous reports. For example, Radar claims that the car cost $450,000, not $320,000, and that the car is a Lamborghini, not, as photos show, a Ferrari.
Despite these inconsistencies, the article does substantiate recent reports that suggest Tyga is struggling financially. Late last month, the rapper allegedly was ordered to pay $70,000 in back rent and vacate a house in Calabasas, Calif.
Whatever the state of his bank account, the just-released video for his new single “Stimulated,” which co-stars Jenner, would seem to signify that Tyga is feeling A-OK about the couple’s future.
