Although there hasn't been a clear-cut "yes, they're dating" or "no, they're not dating" when it comes to Kylie Jenner and Tyga's relationship, Kanye West was willing to give a little insight into what may be going on between the two of them.

While he didn't necessarily admit that Tyga is dating his sister-in-law, he didn't exactly deny it either. In fact, he insinuated that there is more than meets the eye!

"I think he got in early," Yeezy dished during a Power 105 Breakfast Club interview Friday. "I think he was smart."

Some might think the relationship is just a tad controversial because Kylie isn't yet 18, while Tyga is 25. But, keeping it real as usual, Kanye argued that there have been far bigger age gaps than his rapper friend and Kylie's.

"They're closer in age than a lot of relationships I know," the "Only One" rapper said. "I knew Tyga was smart."

But when the hosts revealed to Kanye that Tyga had recently appeared on their show and had denied the relationship like he was "supposed to," Kanye simply said, "Yeah, I can't speak on the man's relationship."

Kanye might have tried to beat around the bush, but Tyga certainly didn't when he interviewed with the hosts.

"I'm not dating Kylie. I just want to get that out of the way," he proclaimed. "I want to be clear to everybody that I didn't leave my family to be with Kylie. That's ridiculous. Me and [BlacChyna, we broke up almost close to a year [ago] now, because of the decision we made, and things in our relationship that weren't going right, [so we] decided to split to raise an emotionally stable kid."

He also said that he felt the media "didn't care" about him until they found out Kim Kardashian and Kanye are his neighbors, despite having been friends with the Kardashian family for a long time.

"But I've been friends with [the Kardashians] before I even met Chyna. I was friends with Scott [Disick], her family for years, so me hanging out with them was nothing new. People just want to make a story out of it," he continued.

Despite denying any relationship with Kylie, he did add that she is a "beautiful young woman" whose "maturity and mentality is different than a lot of people."

And so the mystery continues...
