Kylie Jenner has reignited speculation that she is dating rapper Tyga after the pair reportedly enjoyed a cosy dinner date.

The teenage reality star, who is Kim Kardashian's half-sister, was allegedly spotted outside Mexican restaurant Casa Vega in Sherman Oaks with the Rack City hitmaker earlier this month.

Sources claim that they appeared to be on a date as there were no friends present. They allegedly left in the same car.

Tyga is back on the market after splitting from fiancee and mother of his son Blac Chyna this summer.

"Kylie always had a crush on him; but as she got older and they started spending more time together, things took off romantically," an insider previously told Us Weekly.

Their rendezvous comes just weeks after Tyga, whose real name is Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson, furiously denied dating the 17-year-old during a rant on Twitter.

"Don't believe the rumours, been friends with the family forever. We're all just friends. I hate blogs! Rumours come and go but you keep your shadow. Everywhere you go it follows."

However, if they are no longer just friends, Jenner would be the third member of the Kardashian family to date a hip hop star. Kim has a daughter with Kanye West, who she married back in May and Khloe recently ended her seven-month romance with French Montana.

Following reports that Jenner plans to venture into music, dating a musician could potentially work in her favour.
