As Cosmopolitan.com reports, 14-year-old Molly O’Malia is working with attorney Gloria Allred to tell the teen’s version of the story. According to Allred, any communication between Tyga and her client was nonconsensual.

Since O’Malia is an aspiring actress and singer, she initially thought Tyga was reaching out (over Instagram Direct Message) to help her career. His repeated attempts to contact her made her uncomfortable, not, as OK! reported, broke her heart.
At a press conference held by her attorney, O’Malia made her statement about the situation:
“The truth is that Tyga contacted me first. He direct messaged me on Instagram. I knew who he was, but I was surprised that he was contacting me. I thought that it could possibly be about my music, but he did not mention that in his initial communication with me. I thought that was strange, but I was thinking he would bring that up in his next message to me.
“However, he didn’t mention it in the next message. I began to feel uncomfortable when he asked me to FaceTime with him. He asked me to FaceTime three times, but I did not do it. Because of my discomfort with why he wanted to communicate with me, I quickly stopped responding to him.”
O’Malia went on to criticize OK! for publishing false claims about her and Tyga. “I do not deserve the negative attention I have been getting as a result of this photo,” she said.
Tyga’s reps claim to TMZ that his contact with O’Malia was purely professional and that Tyga’s attempts to FaceTime O’Malia were to hear her sing. Watch the full press conference below.
