An Open Letter To Kylie Jenner: Stop Paying For Tyga's Lifestyle
First of all, I just want to say even though I have never successfully watched a full episode of "KUWTK" and I don't own any of your Lip Kits, your Instagram is truly mesmerizing to me. I've followed you on Insta for at least two years and I'm invested enough in your life to care about your recent financial decisions.
I'm no expert, but I've started to educate myself on personal finance at the ripe age of 24. I wish I knew what I was doing with my money when I was your age -- even though you have staggeringly more dough than I did when I was 19.
Let's face it, you'll probably always have more money than me, but that's only if you quit helping Tyga out.
I know you love him. It's only natural for you to want to care for your bae. But Kylie, you don't need to buy your way into good GF status.
Because you've been bailing him out, he's missing an opportunity to learn a very important lesson in life: Money doesn't, in fact, grow on the Kylie Jenner tree. So far, that's all you've been teaching him.
Instead of working for his money, like the rest of us do, he relies on you, his 19-year-old GF to save his ass.
Don't you want a man who can take care of himself?
You're turning Tyga into a mooch. Bailing him out is going to get really old, really fast.
Trust me, soon enough you'll want to invest even more money into your flourishing business. You're building an empire. How do you even have time for Tyga's financial nonsense?
Seriously. Instead of the Bentley you bought him, that money could have gone toward a whole new app for your brand or a large charitable donation to a group of people who need your help.
I know you give back, I seriously love those IG posts from you, but your broke boyfriend doesn't count as a charity.
And if you and Tyga eventually call it quits, you'll be sad you ever wasted a dime on him.
I know Tyga just bought you that super sweet Mercedes-Maybach for your bday, but girl, you should have him return it. He obviously needs that money to make rent and/or get debt-collecting creditors off his back.
Yeah, lifestyle and image are important, but not as important as being financially independent.
Your generosity to your boyfriend is really sweet, but there has to be a line. Apparently, he hasn't asked you for any money and you have helped him financially because you want to, but that money is better off invested elsewhere.
Your future 24 self will be thanking you later if you get smart with your disposable income now.
