Model and hip hop video vixen Blac Chyna and reality tv star Rob Kardashian have had a storied relationship. After Chyna got out of a relationship with rapper Tyga, who she has a son with, the rapper got together with a Kardashian member, and so did Chyna.
At the head of 2016 (maybe even the end of 2015), the news broke that Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian were dating and the Kardashian family was reportedly “in shock”. A source revealed to Entertainment Tonight that “Kylie is absolutely livid that Rob is dating Chyna.” And in case you forgot, Chyna and Kim Kardashian used to be BFF’s. She used to be a recurring person on the family’s reality tv series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, so in basic language, this relationship could mean trouble.
Have you ever posted a cryptic message or photo on a social media outlet and have people guessing as to what it could possibly mean? Blac Chyna posted a photo of a mysterious figure giving her a kiss on the cheek. All you can see is the tail end of his arm tattoo and a mustache.
Instagram followers got a hunch that it was Rob Kardashian. That was the start of the relationship as seen on social media sites, and it only foreshadowed a ton of future social media posts that would leave fans guessing what was really going on.
For a family that lives on TV and owes their livelihood to drama, don’t you think this fiasco would be a centerfold for the family? We hinted at it earlier but the dynamics of the relationship is something that sounds like it came out of a sitcom or highly acclaimed drama.
When Tyga started dating the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner family, Kylie, Kim and Blac started to have a falling out. Which only makes it weirder that her brother became Blac’s boyfriend. There were tons of episodes where this drama was the focal point and even until this day, there is still tension with them.
Rob beefs with Khloe
Towards the beginning of the relationship, Rob was forced out of Khloé’s house. Where do you think he went? He went to move in with Blac Chyna, but why did he have to do this? Apparently, he and Chyna were disrespectful to Khloé’s home. TMZ reported that Khloé found the two at her house with “liquor bottles and trash strewn about.”
Them leaving the house a mess doesn’t mix well with the fact that the two started dating and caused more drama for the family. Khloé was probably hyper-sensitive at the moment and acted on a whim when she saw the trash.
The longer the relationship went on, more rumors spread and all thanks to social media. Blac Chyna posted suggestive photos of herself wearing a ring on that finger, which led fans to believe that Rob asked to take her hand in marriage.
The rumors were false and they were all fueled because that is what Chyna wanted to have happen. A source told People magazine, “Chyna is all about attention, and that’s probably why she keeps flashing the ring.” Meaning, don’t believe the hype people, it is just for show.
New relationships can breed new light. It can inspire one to take a course of action that he or she has been needing to take or maybe just waiting for something to give. Well, Chyna inspired Rob to take back control of his life. If you recall, prior to the relationship with Chyna, Rob was in a funk, and his unhealthy lifestyle led him to gain excess weight.
“Rob has fallen hard for Blac Chyna. She makes him super happy and this is the first time that he’s felt so optimistic about life in years,” a source tells People. He was seen starting to get back in shape, and claims that Chyna was the reason he began losing weight and making healthier choices.
Break up rumors
There is only so much that celebrities can keep private in today’s era. Although celebrities have little control over what the paparazzi snaps of them, they do have control over what they post on social media. Fans began to think Rob and Blac were splitting up after Rob deleted his posts of the two together on his social media accounts. He took to Instagram to explain.
“It’s impossible to have a positive relationship with so much negativity from the media and outsiders and we would appreciate if it everyone respects that,” he wrote. It appears he simply wants the two to have a private and happy life together with no negativity.
Big V-Day gift
Their relationship was still new, but that didn’t stop Rob from going all out for his Valentine’s day gift to Chyna in 2016. Rather than just a box of chocolates and a card with roses, he got her a tree-size vase of roses and a huge painting of Chyna with a pink wig on.
“Look at this really nice painting that my babe got for me,” Chyna says in her Instagram video showcasing the new art. “And if you look really close, it’s actually the lyrics to our song. Happy Valentine’s Day, Rob.” How in the world are you to top that!
The PDA is boosted
Now that it appears that the relationship is looking solid and something the two can invest in even though there is still some family drama, the two start to take on a more public front by showing more PDA. Blac’s Snapchat had videos of her saying things that were either NSFW or super sweet.
In one of her snaps, she said: “I want to have a baby!” There were also other ones that implied that the couple was ready for marriage and to start a family of their own. On the surface, it seems that they were taking it a little too fast.
Kris supports Rob
By now you are aware that the family relationship between Rob and the rest of the Kardashian clan was not at a good place. That is until mother Kris became the bigger person and chose to be the biggest supporter of the relationship. Rob was also spotted hanging with younger sister, Kylie who felt betrayed at the start.
Kris sees the benefits of her son’s relationship with the model. “[She is] actually super stoked on them together now,” a source tells People. “She feels like Rob was pulled out of his depression phase because of her.” It is always a good thing for parents to be supportive.
Rob and Chyna’s son begin to bond more
Things were looking nice so far as the relationship was concerned but then came another questionable move. Tyga and Chyna’s son, King Cairo, was introduced to Rob early on and the trio would hang out often. They even headed to Legoland for an early birthday celebration for Rob. Why Rob chose to go to Legoland is a mystery but maybe it had something to do with King.
Rob called it a “pre-Birthday turn-up,” as he posed with Chyna in a picture. The three also spent time on Easter Sunday which is a family holiday so it is interesting to see Tyga not included in that.
Okay, now this is moving fast. The couple had only been dating for ten weeks and that is when Rob thought it was a good time to propose to Blac Chyna. On April 4, 2016, Rob gave Chyna a $325,000 7-carat diamond ring. Of course, she said yes, but how they celebrated is classic.
Apparently, the two celebrated with Chyna’s mom at the strip club. Do you think your mom would want to hang out with you at the strip club after you just told her you were getting married? Maybe that is just due to the new era we are in.
By now, moving fast in the relationship is just the common theme and Blac and Rob don’t seem to be taking a detour from that route anytime soon. When May came around, it was announced that Blac was indeed carrying a baby in her belly. Despite a previous claim that the two wanted to be private, they took to Instagram to announce the special news.
“I can confirm she’s pregnant and of course she’s happy,” Chyna’s rep told People. Well, that’s good news after their relationship moved that fast. You wouldn’t want to bring a child into this world in an unhappy situation.
Beef ended between Chyna and Kylie
Chyna and Kylie became friends around the same time the baby news and engagement news was out there. And when it happened, fans were as shocked as ever. The two took to Snapchat to tell their friends that the two of them had in fact always been friends, regardless of rumors.
“We’ve been best friends the whole time,” Jenner captioned one of the pictures they posted together. Too bad anyone who follows you two is aware of how much that is a lie. It made for good shock value, we have to give them that.
The whole group is healed
After Kylie and Chyna called it water under the bridge, it only made sense that the rest of the crew followed suit. The main reasoning is because they all saw how much of a positive impact that Chyna has had on Rob. “The girls literally thought Rob was going to die,” says an insider. “They feel like Chyna saved him.”
Chyna went to Khloé’s birthday party, along with the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family, and all appeared to be good. “The [Kardashian sisters] have gotten over their issues with Chyna now, a source told People. “They’ve welcomed her in.” The fast-moving relationship seemed to be coming along great.
Rob gets in a happy place
As we mentioned earlier, Rob was in a dark place and it hurt the family to see him that way, especially his mom. Luckily, his relationship with Chyna brought Rob back to his happy place.
“I think that he’s in a very good place right now, and he’s more comfortable in his own skin, and he’s back to being the old Rob,” his mother Kris Jenner said. “The old Rob is so funny and so engaging and so charming and such a wonderful guy and to see that disappear for a minute broke my heart.” Seeing your son happy again is a victory for any parent.
Another breakup rumor?
Rob did it again. He went on his social media pages and wiped them clean except for one post. Naturally, the fans think that he and Chyna are splitting because everyone knows that he loves displaying his love for her. Luckily, that was not the case.
Sources close to Chyna said, “they’re not broken up.” “They filmed [their upcoming E! reality show] over the weekend and had an argument.” Another source disclosed, “it’s hard to see Rob and Chyna actually splitting. Rob is looking forward to becoming a dad. It would take a lot for him to break up with her.”
Ongoing blocking spree
Maybe good things don’t last forever. Something has to prompt Rob to do the things he does but Kim Kardashian doesn’t seem to know what the answer is. After things had seemed to be going good, Rob went on a family blocking spree, that included blocking his sisters and Chyna!
“This is how he’s been for the last three years,” Kim told Chyna on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. “I don’t even know what the answer is.” Well, Kim, even if you do not know the answer you should know that it isn’t a good thing when someone decides to block their social media followers.
Dream Kardashian is Born
Getting ready for a baby to come into the world can be a very exciting and strenuous time for future parents. Rob posted a photo of he and Chyna prior to their bodies blowing up due to lack of effort and the pregnancy. He was determined to be healthy for his baby.
The baby came four weeks later after that Instagram post. Dream Renée Kardashian came into the world November 10, 2016 and was completely healthy. “I feel like with my second baby, I’m more educated than the first one,” Chyna shared. “I’m more ready than anything. I’m relaxed.” That is great news to hear.
Wedding plans off?
But then, in February of 2017, the wedding between the two was called off and they had officially broken up. The fast moving relationship predictably imploded. “They split a while ago. The wedding plans are off,” a source close to Kardashian told People magazine.“They are both trying to be mature about it. It was less dramatic this time.” A source told People that Chyna was “fed up” with Kardashian’s behavior. Blocking social media followers was probably part of that. Let’s hope the two can co-parent for their daughter’s sake.
