How Much Money Has Tyga Spent on Kylie Jenner?

We've added up the value of alllllll the lavish gifts Tyga has given Kylie, from last week’s diamond ring to the 2011 surprise concert where they (allegedly!) first met cute

If you’ve been following Kylie Jenner on Snapchat (kylizzlemynizzl) or Instagram (@kyliejenner) lately, you may have spotted the 18-year-old social media phenom flaunting some serious bling on her ring finger. Whether the giant rock is a not-so-subtle hint that she and her on-again, off-again rapper bae are officially getting hitched, one thing is for certain: Tyga, or T-Raww as he’s also known, likes to make it rain when it comes to gifting his reality queen. Here, we tally Tyga’s spend (and Kylie’s haul!) in reverse chronology.

The gift: A pear-shaped, cushion-cut diamond ring
The price: $50,000 +*
The deets: First spotted last Friday in a casual fingers-first Instagram snap (top left) and this Monday on Snapchat in a video captioned “bae spoils,” Kylie debuted a jaw-dropping diamond dazzler. Its provenance? Most likely Polacheck’s, the fine jewellery store near her Calabasas home that Tyga was papped outside of the day before her Insta post.

The gift: A diamond-encrusted grill
The price: $15,000
The deets: According to a TMZ story from February, Tyga purchased this 18-karat gold mouthpiece with hand-set diamonds for his grill-loving boo (her first was an all gold version at the 2014 American Music Awards). Purportedly, it was a Valentine’s Day prezzie that he purchased from Johnny Dang, the hip-hop world’s go-to-jeweler. From the looks of Tyga’s since-removed Instagram post of a snarling pink-haired Kylie, which you can still see here, her badass grill is similar to this six-tooth version (pictured above), also by Dang.

The gift: A halo diamond ring
The price: $33,000
The deets: After rekindling her relationship with Tyga before the 2015 holidays, Kylie fuelled engagement rumours once more by posting this not-ostentatious-at-all photo of her ice-laden hand gripping the wheel of her Range Rover—with an accompanying Santa emoji, natch. Days later, she posted the following message on her app: “Every year my Mom throws a huge Christmas Eve party and this years was so fun (and sparkly)! It was really special to end such a big year celebrating with all of my friends and family… and with an extra special gift from a special someone. And NO, I’m not engaged :)”

The gift: A Ferrari 458 Spider convertible
The price: $320,000
The deets: While Kris Jenner gave her daughter a $10,000+ Hermès Birkin for her 18th birthday last August, Tyga trumped the momager by proffering his one true love a six-figure white sports car festooned with a red bow. Who cares that Kylie already had a fleet of cars—or that the convertible may have been leased, not bought, and in her own name, not Tyga’s. Regardless, the sentiment/photo op was still there.

The gift: A 50-karat, diamond-encrusted gold Rolex
The price: $30,000
The deets: The first time Tyga was photographed leaving Polacheck’s was last July. This was mere hours before Kylie’s Laurel Springs high school graduation, when she posted this close-up of her wrist with the accompanying humble brag. One of Polacheck’s specialties? Luxury Rolex timepieces.

The gift: Tyga’s “Kylie” tattoo
The price: Roughly $500, depending on the artist
The deets: While he keeps his “Kylie” ink under wraps whenever they’re in a cooling-off period, Tyga had Jenner’s first name permanently inked onto his inner right arm last April. At the time, Hollywood Life claimed it was Tyga’s attempt to make amends for the behaviour of his ex/baby-mama Blac Chyna (now Kylie’s step brother Rob Kardashian’s fiancée—yes, it’s v. complicated), who had posted text messages on her Instagram that showed the then 25-year-old rapper pleading, “I want to be with u” and, “I want to be a family again.”

The gift: Two movie passes to Fifty Shades of Grey
The price: $30
The deets: Tyga took Kylie to a late-night showing of the racy S&M romance early in 2015. Curious if the tale of an older man in a relationship with a younger woman hit home? (The “Rack City” rapper is eight years her senior.)

The gift: A surprise Tyga performance at sister Kendall’s Sweet 16
The price: According to BookingEntertainment.com, an agency specializing in securing A-list talent for parties, a Tyga appearance costs “under $25,000.”
The deets: Okay, technically this wasn’t something that Tyga “gifted” to Kylie, but if you believe the pervy tabloid coverage and stream YouTube videos of this “Keeping up with the Kardashians” episode where a shirtless Tyga gyrates for Kendall and a 14-year-old (!!!) Kylie, you just might notice a spark between the two future lovebirds.

Total Tyga spend and Kylie haul: $454,030
