The alleged recipient of the alleged Tyga dick pics, 29-year-old transgender model Mia Isabella, released a statement this afternoon to VH1 regarding her stance in the controversy. She neither confirmed nor denied any intimate involvement with the rapper, rather speaking generally on transgender discrimination:

"It’s very sad that the idea of a man loving a trans person has to be considered a scandal when all people are equal – love always wins doesn’t it? I live in a world in my mind where everything is a fairy tale of love. Saddening to see small-minded thoughts travel so quickly like wildfire not knowing if its true or not. It’s like wave crashing over me washing over me to see masses of humanity rise with pitch forks blindly following. Are we not all equal? Am I not an American with the right to love and live as I choose with whoever I choose? If a celebrated man loves a transgender woman or possibly did that’s news? It shouldn’t be news it should be normal for anyone and everyone to be allowed to love who they choose. This person is not the man that I love but I have loved a few incredible and celebrated men in my life. I live my live in the open courageous and brave in my truth. I’ve been blessed to live in a time where my freedom has allowed me to create the woman I am today in my own image. If only everyone could be so brave. Unconditional love is godlike spreading hate simply a set back for humanity itself."

Though he denies ownership of the dick pic circulating the internet, Tyga and his legal team have contacted the FBI to assist them in their efforts to hunt down the dick pic hacker (Mia Isabella's camp has denied leaking the pic). As ever, the hunt continues...
