After the 2015 scandal of rapper Tyga and reality star Kylie Jenner's relationship, the world started to take a closer look at some of Hollywood's celebrity romances. People were surprised to see that Hollywood is a revolving circle of relationships, partner swaps, and divorces-- and "Kyga" were only one example of such a scandal. Kylie, at the time the age of seventeen, dated twenty-six-year-old Tyga, who dated and had a child with star Blac Chyna. Chyna is Rob Kardashian's on-again-off-again girlfriend, who has also borne a child to him. Rob and Kylie are half-siblings. It is so complicated, convoluted, and strange that the tangled web of Kardashian relationships almost needs a diagram description (Chyna+ Tyga+ Baby > Tyga+ Kylie and Rob+Chyna+ Baby). Make sense? We honestly don't think it does.

His model ex-girlfriend made her way onto the scene through her famous mother's connections and her signature pout.

The one that got away...
This Kardashian is known for her on-again-off-again relationship with her husband, Scott Disick. Kourtney stars in a reality show with her Kardashian family, where the chronicles of his drug use and partying resulted in their split. Many have forgotten another scandalous ex of Kourtney's, who later allegedly claimed to be the real father of her and Disick's son, Mason.

This surfaced in 2013, however, the claims have never been substantiated to the press.

Kendall Jenner, another member of the Kardashian clan, is a young model and TV personality.

Although his ex tends to be private now about her relationship, she gushes about them in her often sexual and provocative music.
