Tyga slams 14-year-old model Molly O'Malia's accusations of "strange" messaging that made her "uncomfortable"

Tyga is firing back at 14-year-old model Molly O'Malia after she accused him of sending her messages and requests to FaceTime that made her uncomfortable.
In a Monday press conference with famed lawyer Gloria Allred at her side, O'Malia responded to rumors she hooked up with Tyga, 26, and got in between his relationship with Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kylie Jenner.
O'Malia -- who became the target of attacks thanks to a tabloid article that barely blurred out her face -- alleged the rapper sparked up the controversy by reaching out to her first via 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," O'Malia explained in a video of the conference obtained by TMZ.
"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. [Tyga] asked me to FaceTime three 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 claimed she wanted to come forward with this news so Tyga couldn't do this to another young girl.
However, Tyga's manager Anthony Martini told TMZ the rapper only had interest in O'Malia's musical talent because of her strong following online and was therefore scouting her for his Last Kings Records label. Tyga insisted it was just business and completely appropriate.
As for the FaceTime allegations, Tyga's representative claims he just wanted to hear her sing as he sat with producers in a studio and the situation never escalated to one in which she'd feel "uncomfortable."
