American rapper Tyga has denied that he is romantically involved with Kylie Jenner.

During a new interview with Vibe, the Rack City rapper squashed dating rumours and revealed that they are just friends.

"Kylie? Nah. See the thing about Kylie... I've known Kylie and the whole family for four years. I introduced [Blac] Chyna to Kim Kardashian about a year ago. So everybody's been cool, but like it's just so hard, their world is different," he said.

"If somebody wanna hang out, cool, I'm not opposed to hanging out with somebody. I hang out with her [Kylie], her sister Kendall Jenner, I hang out with Scott Disick sometimes, I hang out with Khloe Kardashian sometimes. But people wanna take the situation [with Kylie] to the next level," Tyga added.

Rumours that the two are dating started after they were spotted at Kabuki Japanese Restaurant in Los Angeles' Woodland Hills area earlier this month.

However, Tyga had recently denied the relationship rumours on his Twitter account.

Meanwhile, the 17-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star's mother Kris Jenner revealed that Kylie is currently single, during an appearance on KIIS FM's On Air with Ryan Seacrest.

"Kylie isn't dating anybody. This whole little group of kids who have been around forever, and I call them kids because, relatively speaking, they kind of all travel as a pack and they enjoy each other's company," she shared. "We all live in the same neighborhood. [Tyga] used to live across the street for a long time, and now he lives next door to Khloe."
