Tyga is reportedly calling in the feds in an attempt to hunt down the culprit he says leaked photos of his penis.
According to TMZ, the rapper’s legal team contacted the FBI on Wednesday morning regarding the pics that recently popped up on a blog post, claiming Tyga sent them to a transgender model during a sexting session.
His attorney Lee Hutton says they alerted the feds because they believe the images were hacked — either from Tyga or someone with whom he intentionally shared the pics. TMZ reports that the photos are authentic — citing his tattoos as proof.
Hutton believes the person he sent them to is trying to “maliciously shame” him by using the photos to manufacture a fake story. Hutton also believes the “transgender” part of the story is offensive, and a clear dig at his alleged girlfriend Kylie Jenner’s parent, Caitlyn Jenner.
Hutton says they’ve already obtained the email that was sent to multiple media outlets, including the blog that posted the story, and they’ve put a trace on it.
TMZ says it has contacted a rep for Mia Isabella, the model Tyga was allegedly texting despite being in a rumored relationship with Kylie. The rep says Mia had nothing to do with sending photos or text messages to the media, and is in fact willing to work with Tyga and the FBI to find the real suspect.
(We can’t show you the pics, but they are circulating online).
