Magazine” that the two had engaged in flirting, and started to insinuate that the two may possibly have a sexual relationship. After the article was released, Molly responded by starting a press conference also attended by her mother and attorney Gloria Allred, in which she stated that she was contacted by Tyga through Instagram, and the two started conversing though there was nothing from their conversations that could point to it as sexual.
She went on to say that Tyga tried to Facetime with her around three times, and during those times, she quickly became uncomfortable and stopped responding to him.

Tyga’s manager went on to also make a statement, saying that Tyga only reached out to contact O’Malia for purely business reasons, and he was keen on signing her to a record label.
