A 14-year-old model labeled as the underage teen chatting with Tyga behind Kylie Jenner’s back wants OK! magazine to apologize for using her pixelated photo on its cover.
“Even though (they) pixelated my face and did not use my name, a lot of people could tell it was me,” the teen, Molly O’Malia, said during a Monday press conference hosted by famed attorney Gloria Allred.
The article in the Dec. 28 issue indicated Tyga was pursuing the ninth-grader.
“He’s definitely trying to hook up with her, and she’s flattered,” the article said. “She thinks it’s exciting … He keeps telling her how beautiful she is and how he can’t wait to hang out with her. It’s a lot of attention for a girl her age, and she’s clearly enjoying it.”
