Tyga is speaking out about his relationship with Kylie Jenner, saying their eight-year age difference doesn’t matter to him in the least.

The rapper is 26; his Kardashian sister girlfriend is just 18. But he said it meant nothing to him when they became an item.

“I don’t know. It’s hard to talk about that because people are gonna bash,” he told 106 KMEL, a radio station in San Francisco. “I didn’t understand it, though, because I’m like, ‘This person is a really good person.'”

“Me being older than her, I’ve been through a lot more things so I can help her more with it, even though she’s been more in the tabloid media limelight than I have been,” he said. “But I can see that because I know what type of person she is. I know what she deals with.”

We’re glad to see Tyga and Kylie doing so well. Let’s hope it lasts!
