Tyga "doesn't care what the world thinks" about his relationship with Kylie Jenner.
The 'Rack City' hitmaker is believed to be dating the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star - who, at 17, is eight years younger than him - and insists he doesn't care about other people's opinions so long as they are happy.
He said: "Whether if I tell the world that I love her or I don't, it's gonna be me to dictate that, and how I want to keep my friendship and relationship with her.
"I feel like it doesn't matter what the world thinks. If you're around somebody, and you love being around that person, that's all that matters. I don't feel like what anybody could say would change that... how I feel for her as a person... She's just a good person, she's got great energy."
Though the rapper has refused to confirm their romance directly, he admitted his "love" for her will "continue to grow".
He added in an interview with 92.3 AMP radio: "We've got a group of friends, we've been hanging out for the longest... I've been knowing her and her family for six, seven years, so it's all love there, and we're going to continue to grow."
And Tyga doesn't believe the nature of their relationship should concern his fans.
Asked if he is in love with Kylie, he said: "I love her as a person.
"I mean, I don't think it really matters. If you love being around somebody, that's all that matters, you know?
"Sometimes you gotta just let that artist live their own personal life sometimes, and you gotta respect that as a fan and a spectator of what we do."
