Tyga wants a girlfriend to spoil with pricey gifts

Rapper Tyga is lamenting his single status because he doesn't have a special lady to spoil this Christmas.

The Rack City hitmaker has been spotted enjoying the company of a few different women in recent months, but Kylie Jenner's ex has made it clear he's not currently in a relationship in a new post on Snapchat.

He shared a photo of himself holding up a pair of diamond-studded stilettos while out shopping on Wednesday (13Dec17), and captioned the image, "I need a gf (girlfriend)".

Tyga, 28, also added an emoji of a face with dollar signs as eyes and a green tongue, suggesting the heels come with a sky-high price tag.

The hip-hop star moved out of Kylie's California home in April after a three-year on/off relationship, and she didn't waste any time in moving on - she is widely reported to be pregnant with her first child, having embarked on a new romance with another rapper, Travis Scott.

In July, Tyga insisted he had no qualms with 20-year-old Kylie dating Travis, admitting, "I have love for her, but, like, I'm not in love no more (sic)."

Tyga won't be completely alone for the holidays - he shares five-year-old son King with his ex-fiancee Blac Chyna, who ironically dated Kylie's half-brother Rob Kardashian for a year until early 2017. They welcomed daughter Dream in November 2016.
