It's probably best Kylie Jenner does her own thing for a while anyway because, really, does she need Tyga?

It's a lot to ask of anyone — especially an 18-year-old — to deal with the kind of family drama that the Kardashian/Jenner family has experienced in recent weeks. And it may have finally become too much for Kylie Jenner, who reportedly broke up with Tyga because of Blac Chyna's new involvement in their family.

Sources say it's no coincidence that Jenner and Tyga, who have been hanging out since at least 2014, broke up for good around the same time Chyna and Rob Kardashian announced they were having a baby and Chyna had decided to legally change her name to Angela Kardashian. If you recall, Tyga is the father of Chyna's son King Cairo. When they called it quits, the music video star and model had a lot to say about her ex's relationship with a then-underage Jenner (Tyga is 10 years older than Jenner), with whom he started hanging around right after their split.

When Chyna and Rob got together in January and seemed immediately smitten with one another, it reportedly "shook up Kylie and Tyga's relationship" and made things "uncomfortable." I'll say! Look, it seemed like everyone was doing their part to at least try and welcome Chyna to the family and embrace this relationship. I mean, a baby brings instant joy and is a darn good reason to leave the past in the past. Everyone from Kim to Khloé to Tyga himself publicly congratulated Chyna and Rob. Hurray! Cheers to one big, happy, unconventional family, right?

Yeah, not quite. Kylie reportedly felt like she was in an "incestuous" relationship and could no longer handle the drama. She and Tyga may be broken up for good, and Chyna's now-permanent ties to the family may have a lot to do with it.

But before we go blaming Chyna and Rob for the split, we should remember that Jenner is only 18 and that Tyga is her first serious relationship. How many of us actually go on to marry boys we dated before we graduated high school? And, lest we forget, Jenner and Tyga have broken up and gotten back together several times over the past few years. There were rumors that the rapper cheated on her with a Brazilian model named Annalu Cardoso. Rumors that she couldn't bring herself to trust him again. Rumors, rumors, rumors.

The fact remains: This couple had problems before Chyna and Rob came into the picture. If anything, maybe Jenner should be thanking her stepbrother for serving as the catalyst that finally prompted her to move on. Jenner has so much living left to do — she has barely started exploring her independence. She'll be just fine on her own.
