Teen is denying reports about having a sexual relationship with the rapper

Tyga has found himself at the center of yet another scandal with an underage girl, as an aspiring teen model/singer is alleging the 26-year-old rapper sent her "uncomfortable" messages online.

During a press conference Monday with lawyer Gloria Allred, 14-year-old Molly O'Malia spoke out against a recent report from OK! magazine that suggested she and Tyga engaged in a sexual relationship. O'Malia set the record straight by explaining that the correspondence never extended past social media and she stopped communication when Tyga tried to meet up with her in person.

She stated:

"The truth is that Tyga contacted me first. He direct messaged me on Instagram. I knew who he was but I was surprised that he was contacting me. I thought that it could possibly be about my music, but he did not mention that in his initial communication with me. I thought that was strange, but I was thinking he would bring that up in his next message to me. However, he didn't mention it in the next message."

"I began to feel uncomfortable when he asked me to FaceTime with him. He asked me to FaceTime 3 times, but I did not do it. Because of my discomfort with why he wanted to communicate with me I quickly stopped responding to him. It's crazy how so much can come out of nothing."

O'Malia said she came forward because she didn't want another girl to go through what she's gone through. Her mother has since released a statement criticizing OK! magazine, explaining that it "falsely [insinuated] that there was an inappropriate sexually suggestive relationship going on between Tyga and Molly."

Tyga's manager, Anthony Martini, tells TMZ that the rapper did reach out to O'Malia, but strictly for business purposes. He claims Tyga was interested in possibly working with her on a project for his record label, Last Kings Records.

Martini maintains that things never got "uncomfortable" and the pair only discussed the musical project. He also notes that O'Malia said she was 17 years old, as indicated by text messages.

Tyga is currently dating 18-year-old Kylie Jenner.
