The reality star and "Rack City" rapper have had a close friendship for years. They've denied frequent rumors that their relationship had blossomed into something more. But thanks to a new photo making the rounds on social media, it's looking more and more like the two are much more than friends.

In the photo, posted to Instagram by a number of fans and gossip sites, you can clearly see a new tattoo on the inside of Tyga's right elbow: "Kylie" in large, flowing black script.

Even though the two appear to be dating, it's no secret that they have actually been close friends for a long time — Tyga has lived next door to Kylie's big sister Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West, and he's been friends with Scott Disick.

"I was friends with her family for years, so me hanging out with them was nothing new," Tyga explained in a recent interview with Power 105's Breakfast Club. "People just want to make a story out of it."

But in another interview with AMP Radio, Tyga hinted at a blossoming romance between the pair.

"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," he said. "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."

Tyga continued, "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."
