Rapper Tyga has stirred a controversy online after he was photographed sitting in a car with a friend brandishing a handgun.
The “Rack City” star was snapped getting into the car with a group of friends.
Paparazzi shots show Tyga posing for a fan as he sat in the front passenger seat, with the MC looking worse for wear as he held up his gold chains for the cameras.
However, the snaps soon hit headlines for all the wrong reasons as another passenger, in the backseat of the vehicle, could clearly be seen holding a silver firearm. The man in the controversial images has yet to be identified.
Tyga’s girlfriend Kylie Jenner, who had also been out with the rapper, was not in the car at the time of the incident.
Neither the rapper has commented on the pictures, but it seems Tyga noticed the gun in the snaps as he reposted a cropped version of the image, cutting out the gun holder, on Instagram later.
