That’s a TIGHT clinch: Kylie gets intimate… and NOT with Tyga

While her big sister Kim Kardashian might be queen of Instagram – Kylie Jenner is definitely the reigning leader over all things Snapchat: she has the world's most viewed account.

And while she's been cautious about flaunting her relationship with boyfriend Tyga before she turned 18 earlier this month, the duo are definitely going all out with their PDAs in the aftermath.

So understandably – fans have been waiting in earnest for the couple's first Snapchat official embrace. Indeed, yesterday rumour was abound that they'd FINALLY taken the plunge.

However, sadly on further inspection, the video which sparked the discussion is not entirely as it seems.

Shared with her millions of fans yesterday, in the short clip the reality TV star can be seen locked in a tight hug – with her arms wrapped around the other party's neck; they holding on tight to her waist. 

The video appears to have been taken in a plush bathroom – likely one at Kylie's €2.2m mansion, which is located near the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner abodes in California's upmarket Calabasas area.

The red cap of the featured individual, as well as their slim physique and shorter height, suggested that it was indeed Tyga – but a closer look reveals it is actually a female friend.

For example, Ms Jenner's companion sports long, polished nails (NOT Tyga's usual style). The pair are also captured laughing and giggling together, and by the end Kylie murmurs: "My wig's gonna fall off!"

Comments online confirm the speculation, with many fans concluding that the friend in question is in fact Anastasia Karanikolaou – better known as Stassie. 

She is part of the Jenner sisters' inner squad, and recently accompanied them to Mexico to mark Kylie's 18th birthday.

During the holiday, she even borrowed momager Kris Jenner's famous retro pink swimsuit – which was given a new lease of life when Kylie was snapped wearing it on the beach.

The youngest Jenner and Tyga have supposedly been dating for more than a year – certainly they have been inseparable since she celebrated her 17th birthday back in August 2014.
