Plenty of drama has ensued since Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna announced their shocking split on Saturday, December 17, including vicious rants, bizarre memes, back-and-forth Instagram comments and, uh, a televised baby special. Can’t keep up? Here’s everything we know so far about the downfall of the new parents’ oft-turbulent 11-month relationship.
The drama began Saturday afternoon when Chyna’s Instagram account was hacked. The mysterious culprit posted more than a dozen incriminating screenshots of the reality star’s alleged direct messages, in which she detailed her plan to trademark the Kardashian name and leave her fiancé. The hacker also alleged that the Instagram account contained DMs between Chyna and “almost every rapper and athlete in the game,” including Young Thug and Jaden Smith.
Split News Emerges
An hour after the hack, Kardashian, 29, announced on his Snapchat account that Chyna, 28, had left him, moved out of their home and taken their 1-month-old daughter, Dream, with her. He later wrote on Instagram: “I have never been this heartbroken in my life. … 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. … I truly loved Angela. I gave everything I owned for her. Didn’t know I was just part of her plan. … I am so broken.”
The model then gave her side of the story and blamed Kardashian for her Instagram hack. “I’M DONE ! This entire year I have done nothing but help Rob!” she wrote on a new IG page. “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! … Rob asked for all of this! Rob begged me to have Dream! He stressed me out my ENTIRE PREGNANCY!!! … He’s on snapchat acting hurt but he’s yet to come see Dream yet! He knows where we are!”
Memes, Memes, Memes
In an effort to cheer himself up, the Arthur George sock designer posted fan-made memes of himself shortly after sharing his emotional statement on the separation. In one meme, Kardashian’s face was superimposed on Macaulay Culkin‘s face on the Home Alone movie poster. “A FAMILY COMEDY WITHOUT THE FAMILY,” he captioned the picture. After fans began to question his lighthearted take on the split, Kardashian defended himself, writing on Instagram: “People are tagging me in these memes and just cuz I’m posting them doesn’t mean this wasn’t all serious. This is all very real and serious to me and I’m trying to cheer myself up with these and they are making me laugh.”
Chyna’s Mom Weighs In
Tokyo Toni took to Instagram to share her take on her daughter’s split after a fan questioned the drama. “You should not be asking me why did Rob and Chyna break up or why Chyna leave Rob the question should be where is my daddy and why did he leave my mama,” Toni wrote in a lengthy tirade. “I don’t know why people think because you have a lot of money and material things that every day normal s–t cannot and do not happen to them.” Chyna’s mom concluded her message by telling fans there may still be hope for the couple, who got engaged in April after less than three months of dating. “At the end of the day they will still be together I promise you,” Toni wrote. “Rob just have to get Mr. Insecure off of his back! Everything will be fine.”
Chyna Slammed for Controversial Video
The Lashed Bar owner’s Instagram comments were bombarded with snake emojis after she reposted a video of herself with another man, hairstylist Kellon Deryck, on Sunday, December 18. “You should be ashamed of yourself,” one fan commented, as another wrote, “Drama queen.” In Chyna’s defense, the clip was old and was first shared on her original Instagram account days before the split news.
Amid the drama, both Chyna and Kardashian continued to promote their E! reality series, Rob & Chyna, and their baby special. The social media maven also promoted an upcoming Las Vegas appearance on her social media account.
Not Over Yet!
The former couple’s Instagram fight continued late Sunday as they exchanged nasty comments on a since-deleted photo of baby Dream. “I really miss this girl,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star captioned the post. “Never thought a woman would try to take my happiness when all I wanted was to make her Happy. Man this is awful. Closing my eyes cuz this is draining.”
Chyna commented on the picture, writing, “Rob stop it man ! I sent u this pic !!!” and Kardashian replied, “And u texting me on my comment section on here proving my point even more. U blocked me and it’s f–ked up and I’m heart broken. I loved every inch of you.”
In yet another plot twist, Kardashian issued an apology to his fiancée on Instagram on Monday, December 19. “This weekend I was in an emotional bad place and did some things that embarrassed myself and my family,” he captioned a picture with Chyna. “I apologize and I’m seeking help to deal with my flaws/issues. Please pray for me and I’m sorry @blacchyna. You are a great mother to our child and I love you.” He then shared a photo of Dream, writing, “I am going to get better for you Dream. You are my life and gave me a new start on being a better me. Love you.”
