Rob Kardashian, of the Kardashian Klan, has split from his fiancee and the mother of his child, Blac Chyna.
Chyna has left the LA home where the couple lived, in a tragic end to the relationship which was accompanied by a series of brutal social media posts.
This comes just weeks after Chyna gave birth to her second child, Dream, fathered by Rob.
The news was perhaps unsurprising to those who have followed the couple’s tumultuous relationship, which has been documented by their reality TV show, Rob and Chyna.
True to form, Chyna broadcast the split to the world, writing:
I’M DONE. This entire year I have done nothing but help Rob! It’s so SAD & PATHETIC how low he’d stoop to cover up HIS PERSONAL ISSUES! I have done nothing but help & loved him from the beginning! It’s Chy here I got my own!!!
I was doing swell before I got with him! I got him out of khloe’s house, helped him lose all that f***ing weight for him to do nothing & gain it all back!
Rob asked for all of this! Rob begged me to have Dream! He stressed me out my ENTIRE PREGNANCY!!! Accusing me of cheating, going crazy on me with massive text blast daily! being an absolute lunatic & then cover it up with gifts!
I was verbally abused every other day. I was still there with nothing but high hopes for us! I had to beg him to cut his hair, To take his braces of, and To get more into his businesses! I shouldn’t have to tell any grown ass man s**t!
Not to mention Just brought him a brand new 2016 Range Rover!
I PUT MY PRIDE ASIDE & I GAVE UP MY HOUSE TO MOVE INTO KYLIE’S HOUSE WITH HIM TO BE WITH A MAN!!
We weren’t together in that house 2 whole weeks before he starting calling me all types of b***hes & hoes! AND I NEVER NOT ONCE CHEATED ON ROB! EVER!
Referring to the recent leak of her private text messages which seemed to suggest Chyna was with Rob for his money and his family’s name, she hit back:
I gave him the passcode to my phone I have nothing to hide.He refuses to do anything! Eat healthy, work out, work, anything positive, he does nothing! Those Messages OLD AF!
He only did this because when he went through my phone he couldn’t find anything to be mad about! He’s on snapchat acting hurt but he’s yet to come see Dream yet!
He knows where we are! Honestly it’s only so much a person can take. Everyone has tried to help Rob. I’ve gone beyond to help & so has his family!
I have no longer have time to feed into Robert’s shenanigans I have 2 children & myself to fend for.
What hurts the most is watching him do this to me knowing my last situation and promising to never put me through it. Especially after our child is only 1 month.
Chyna’s tirade hasn’t gone unnoticed by Rob, who took to Snapchat to lament the loss of his family.
He also shared the Snapchat on Instagram, presumably to make damn sure Chyna – and the rest of the world – had seen his message.
He captioned the post:
I thought this was going to be the best year of my life, had a beautiful baby Dream and haven’t spent Christmas with family in years and I just can’t believe she really hurt me this way.
She knows how to hurt me and I loved her so hard like I’m supposed to. Like any man is supposed to love their Wife. Chyna knew exactly what she was doing to get me. I can’t believe she did this to me. And this isn’t for some ratings this is my real life so please understand I’m just being open right now. Cuz if it was for ratings I wouldn’t explain all this here.
And with Chyna’s messages and her leaving with everything and the baby I am broken. I go 1000 percent for my girl. I am so confused how a man who gives and loves everything about a woman is the one left alone. I’m sorry for being so open once again, this is killing me.
Sorry to be so open but I’m not feeling so good after seeing @blacchyna messages about me and what her plans were. I have never been this heartbroken in my life. I don’t mind being so open or if anyone thinks I’m being weak but I don’t play when it comes to Family and Chyna was my Family and thought we were getting married.
I treated her as a Queen. My baby girl is 1 month old and Chyna took her and left this beautiful home that I just bought for us. Right before Christmas. Someone I have given my all too. I Loved every inch of that woman and loved everything that came with her. I truly loved Angela. I gave everything I owned for her.
Didn’t know I was just part of her plan. I really believed she was in love with me the way that I was with her and I am so hurt and never felt this before. It’s different when you have a kid with someone. And after reading Chyna’s messages to her best friend she was going to drop me after a year. She didn’t even make it to that. I am so broken. This is a woman I fought my entire family for. I was in love with this woman to the fullest and I was none of that to her. Go to my snap—–> @robphuckedme
Displaying some pretty sub-par PhotoShop skills, Rob even shared a post on Instagram comparing Chyna to the Grinch after she left their family home with Dream and some ‘eggos’.
The Kardashian wrote:
Last one ! But she really stole my eggos and BBQ sauce and the whole freezer was full of eggos ??? but bring Dream back to her Dad please ? she blocked me or else I would ask to see her and she has the guard gate not letting me in the gate either. I just miss baby Dream ?
While this news is devastating for the family, it does seem odd to publicise such an emotionally fraught provate matter to the whole world with this Paint-by-Numbers pictorial display.
Maybe it’s desperation at this sad time, maybe it’s for publicity. Or, even more worrying, maybe this is how a couple so enraptured by the power of social media actually communicate in the 21st century.
