*Gloria Allred came for OK! Magazine at a news conference Monday, accusing them of “sexualizing” a previously unidentified 14-year-old girl who got caught up in the breakup drama between Kylie Jenner and her boyfriend, Tyga.
The lawyer then proceeded to introduce her client, an aspiring model named Molly O’Malia, revealing she was the high school freshman whose blurred face adorned last week’s cover of OK! with the headline “TYGA IN LOVE — With Underage Teen!”
Allred called the report “disgusting” and demanded an apology.
“Maybe there are others who benefit financially from having that story out there, but Molly has been hurt, her family has been hurt. There have been many tears shed,” Allred said. “Molly should have the right to earn her own reputation and not have somebody hijack it and present it in a sexual way.”
OK! Magazine’s story claimed Molly caught Tyga’s eye on Instagram, when he started digitally flirting with her and asked her to meet him in LA, though they never met.
Jenner allegedly saw the flirtation while snooping through Tyga’s phone. Last year, she allegedly caught him sending a nude selfie to a transgender porn actress. The couple briefly split but were together last weekend in Mammoth Lakes, Calif.
A rep for OK! said: “OK! stands by our reporting and the hard work and journalistic integrity of our editors.”
Meanwhile, Tyga’s camp tells TMZ that his interest in Molly was strictly professional.
Tyga had a convo with a 14-year-old model Molly O’Malia … but ONLY to scout her musical talent after his team became interested in signing her as a singer… this according to a rep for the rapper.
Tyga’s manager Anthony Martini tells TMZ the rapper reached out to 14-year-old Molly O’Malia after his team found out she had a pretty strong musical following online and thought she might be a candidate for a Last Kings Records project … his record label. Tyga claims it was strictly business and completely PG. As for her age — according to text messages obtained by TMZ … Molly mentions she is 17.
The manager says in the back and forth Tyga specifically asked her to send him some music, adding things never got “uncomfortable” as she claimed. The rep says Tyga wanted to FaceTime Molly to talk business and see her sing … as he sat in the studio with his producers.
