Not many of us know Tyga’s earlier life and what type of life he had with his mom before he shot to fame. His father spent his entire life behind bars because of which Tyga’s mom had to take the role of both mother and father.
Today let’s find out all the details on this star mom. We will talk about her life, her relationship with Tyga’s dad. Does she have any other children besides Tyga?
Meet Pasionaye Nguyen: Her Wiki-Bio, Age, Ethnicity, Parents
Pasionaye Nicole Nguyen was born on September 11, 1971, in Los Angeles, the United States. As of 2021. she is 50-years-old. She is the daughter of Kim Nguyen and her partner. Pasionaye comes of Vietnamese ethnicity and spent her entire childhood in the Los Angeles County area. Information regarding her father is scarce. Besides, her mom Kim is quite close to the family.
Apart from her parents, Pasionaye has one sister named CeCe Nguyen. It is not sure whether she is Pasionaye’s only sibling or not. Tyga’s aunt CeCe rarely comes in the public but she once openly defended her family when Tyga’s ex, Blac Chyna’s mom called them out.
Pasionaye Nguyen’s mom and sister once involved in a heated argument with Blac Chyna’s Family
Back in 2015, Tyga’s grandmom sparked a major stir between the Nguyen and the Blac Chyna’s family. In an interview with Daily Mail, while talking about her grandson’s alleged girlfriend of the time, Kylie Jenner, she stated,
“We all love Kylie and think she is so much better for Tyga than Blac. Yes she is King’s mom, but Blac just wasn’t a very nice person and Kylie comes from a much better family. Tyga has never seemed happier, now that he is with Kylie.”
Her statement literally stirred up a hornet’s nest. While responding to Kim’s statement, Blac Chyna’s mother, Tokyo Toni lashed out at Kylie and said,
She (Kylie) is 17 and has already had lip injections. Her old sister (Kim) got famous from a s** tape. They (The Kardashians-Jenner) are no better than anybody! I’m DONE!! @kinggoldchains (Tyga) ASHAMED of you!!!”
It is clear Blac’s mom was really pissed. But wait, the drama isn’t over yet. Soon after, Tyga’s aunt CeCe defended her mother and wrote,
“Ms. Toni, I have mad love and respect for you. I wish before you posted this article thinking it was a real article, that you would have reached out to us first. My mom BARELY speaks good English, yet this person who wrote this story says that my mom said all these things. You of all people should know this isn’t true. I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day *heart emoji*”
We can say the Nguyens are a close bunch who will defend each other’s integrity no matter what.
Pasionaye gave birth to Tyga when she was a teenager
It was back on November 19, 1989, when Tyga’s mom welcomed him into this world. He is the only son between Pasionaye and her partner, Stevie J. Stevenson. At that time, Pasionaye was only 18-years-old. Though many sites suggest she gave birth to the hit rapper when she was 16, it is completely false.
Growing up, Tyga never had any father-like figure in his life. His dad was constantly getting into trouble and spent the major portion of his life behind bars. In many interviews and even in songs. Tyga, has often talked about how he truly wanted a dad. In his 2013 album ‘Hotel California’ that featured the song, ‘Dad’s Letter,’ he even wrote some lyrics in regards to his life. He sings,
“Growin up all I wanted was a father figure / Me and mom alone every dinner / One day I hope you hear this, I pray you doin’ better / This what it sound like if I sent my dad letters.”
Despite all the challenges, Pasionaye was successful in raising her son. In fact, her son has made her proud as one of the accomplished rappers around. Mother’s dream come true.

Well, there are a lot of speculations that Tyga’s mom and dad were married. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case here. At the time when Pasionaye became pregnant with Tyga she was barely legal so this means the pair didn’t get married.
Afterward, Tyga’s dad went to prison and in an interview with KALW, he revealed that he is a father of six children all from six different women. In the interview, there was no mention of him being married to Pasionaye. Safe to say, they never married.
