Kylie Jenner recently broke up with her longtime boyfriend rapper Tyga, and reports have been flooding in about another rapper she may have moved on with. The rapper in question, calls himself PartyNextDoor, and E News is reporting that he and Jenner are just friends. However, when Kylie and Tyga first started dating they said they were just friends too, so here are a few things you may want to know about Jenner’s potential next man.
1.The 22-year-old musician’s real name is Jahron Anthony Brathwaite and he grew up in Canada, though his parents are both from the Caribbean (Mom from Jamaica and dad from Trinidad).
2.He’s signed to his fellow Canadian Drake’s label OVO Sound, and his music was first discovered on MySpace when he was just 17. He now has two mixtapes out and has collaborated with Drake on two albums. His mixtape PARTYNEXTDOOR was No. 6 on the Billboard Heatseekers Album Chart back in 2013.
3.He originally moved to LA to be a songwriter with Warner Brothers, before signing with OVO Sound in 2013. Speaking to The Fader about that time in his life, the rapper said that his mom was giving him ‘50 bucks every two weeks to pitch in on groceries’.
My mom was giving me 50 bucks every two weeks to pitch in on groceries. In my mind I’m like, ‘Okay, I gotta pay my mom back this 50 bucks.
4.The Jenners have known PartyNextDoor for a while; Kylie and Kendall appeared in his music video for his song ‘Recognize’ featuring Drake in 2014.
5.He’s private, but not mysterious. Speaking to The Fader, the hip hop artist said he doesn’t like being called ‘mysterious’ but prefers to use the word ‘private’.
I would never call myself mysterious. The word I use is ‘private.’ I’m not hiding from pictures. When you see me, I’ll say whassup. I just don’t wanna live in this fantasy where I act like everybody cares, and then I look like a jackass with someone filming me in the airport.
6.Tyga may or may not be trying to compete with him. PartyNextDoor posted this photo on Instagram that showed his wrist and Kylie’s wrist adorned with some seriously blinged out watches, with the caption: ‘Diamond battles with @kyliejenner’. The very next day, Tyga took to Instagram to show off his (even bigger bling) in this photo, with the caption: ‘Diamond battles’. Coincidence?
7.The hip hop artist was previously dating singer Kehlani. He has a song about her called ‘Things & Such (Kehlani’s Freestyle)’ and he posted a photo of them in bed together on social media in March this year.
According to a report in Daily Mail, a source spoke to the Sun saying that Kylie and PartyNextDoor are ‘mad for each other’.
Their relationship started quite suddenly but it just feels right. They are mad for each other. She doesn’t know why she wasted time with Tyga. Kylie’s family found the eight-year age gap with Tyga a bit weird, especially as they got together before she turned 18 last year. PartyNextDoor is much better as he’s only four years older than her.
The Kardashian family tree has become even more convoluted in recent months because of Rob Kardashian’s new romance with Blac Chyna. The two are now engaged and expecting a baby all in the span of a few months. Rob is Kylie’s half brother, and Chyna is Tyga’s ex and baby mama, and Tyga was dating Kylie. It’s complicated. Reports had even said that it was Kylie’s manager Kris who thought it was time to give Tyga the boot due to these developments. Only time will tell what Kris thinks of new beau PartyNextDoor.
