Kylie Jenner and Tyga are going their separate ways again.  

The pair, who has dated on and off since 2014, has broken up. Jenner, 18, and the 26-year-old rapper called it quits before the 2016 Met Gala in early May, TMZ first reported. The first-time gala attendees walked the red carpet separately. 

"It was a long time coming," a source told E! News after confirming the breakup. All of their relationship's drama "takes its toll," the insider added. 

"Their relationship is complicated," a second source shared with E! News.  

The reality star began dating the "Rack City" rapper in October 2014, though it has been a rocky romantic road for the duo. On Tyga's 26th birthday in November 2015, the pair surprisingly split. According to a source, Jenner's former beau was "devastated."

"They are on a break," an insider told E! News at the time. "They were just a week or so ago talking about ‘ever after' and things got messy this past week. Kylie wants time to just be by her self and do her. Tyga is not giving up as that's his one and only lady."

However, just five days later, the reality star appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to confirm they were back together. 

"No, honestly people have it all wrong," Jenner told the daytime talk show host. "No. We're not broken up."

"We're just like...I don't know. Hanging out. Living life," she added. When DeGeneres was confused by the explanation, Jenner declared, "We're still together."


Fast forward into February and Tyga was back to publicly declaring his affection for the makeup mogul. "I love that girl," he said during a radio interview with Real 92.3 in February. 

Now, with the news of their second split, sister Khloe Kardashian's remarks to E! ring truer than ever. 

"I ask Kylie...'I think you were just somewhere for New Year's with him' and then like one day, they're not together," Khloe told E! News' Catt Sadler exclusively in January. "That's the life of an 18-year-old...So I stopped asking her, because it's confusing and I hate telling people, 'Oh, they broke up' and then all of a sudden, someone pulls in my driveway and I'm like, 'Oh, s--t, I thought we were done with this one.'"

"I'm just as confused!" Khloe said, joking, "I need like a 'Note to self—who is everybody dating in this family.'"
