Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna Are ‘Not in a Good Place’ — Plus, Baby Shower Fracas Explained

Take a seat, because Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s relationship just got a whole lot more complicated. The engaged couple, who are expecting their first child together in November, have hit a rocky patch — but according to multiple sources, they’re still together. Us Weekly also has new details about what really went down with that disastrous baby shower.

“Rob and Chyna are not really broken up, but they are not in a good place right now,” one source tells Us. In fact, they’re barely on speaking terms.

“Filming the show has been a lot of stress on their relationship. Add to that Chyna's pregnancy and the fact that Rob and his moods go so up and down,” the insider continues. “Rob really loves Chyna,” and members of his famous family are “confident that they will get through it and patch things up.”

A second source adds that the Arthur George sock designer, 29, and makeup artist, 28, “have been fighting more” and have chosen to give each other some space.

“They are living separately right now until the baby is born because they don’t want the fighting to affect the baby,” the second source tells Us. “They think it is a healthier way to live until the baby is born. He is living in Calabasas and she is in Tarzana. It’s just temporary and because they are living apart, the fighting has gotten less.”

As for why Rob lashed out at his sister Kylie Jenner on Monday, September 26? According to the second source, Rob exploded on Twitter, tweeting out Jenner’s phone number to his millions of followers, because his famous sisters had planned a baby shower for him — without inviting Chyna.

That said, the source explains that it was actually Rob who ignited the whole mess, because he bailed on the event.

“Here’s what happened: Kim threw the shower. Kylie [was] the one that Rob called and told he wouldn’t go to the shower, because she mentioned it was being filmed,” source number two explains. "He [then] got really upset and told her he wasn’t going, but that Chyna still wanted to go. Chyna was all dressed up and ready to go, [but] Kylie then told him that Chyna wasn’t invited if he wasn’t going to be there. She said it was his shower and Chyna could come if they were together — but if he was going to screw them by not going, then Chyna couldn’t come. That’s when Rob exploded. It caused a huge fight between Rob and Chyna too, so that’s when Rob went off on Kylie on Twitter.”

The source concludes that it “really wasn’t Kylie’s fault” and that she was just the “messenger.”
