Two days after she appeared nude on the cover of Paper magazine on Monday, August 29, Chyna, 28, showed her skin again in a series of black-and-white images. Clad in a variety of black Fleur du Mal bras, sheer separates, furs, lace and leather, Chyna, who’s expecting her second child — and her first with fiancé Rob Kardashian — proudly displays her growing baby bump and intricate tattoos.
Chyna (whose real name is Angela White) wears minimal makeup in the shots captured by photographers Williams + Hirakawa. She also rocks a black bob-length wig, while declaring in the accompanying story, “Wigs are my best friends. They let you be whoever you want to be.”
She got personal about the start of her relationship with Kardashian, 29, too. “When I linked up with Rob, he was at a point where nobody could really help him,” she told Elle of his struggles with weight and depression. “But I’m the type of person that likes to motivate my friends and help them figure out how they can do better. That’s how we really started off. When I’m around Rob, I’m never all up in his business, asking questions. I let him be himself and relax. I’m not a therapist. … Sometimes it’s just best to let people talk about it and get it off their chest.”
The couple’s new reality show Rob & Chyna, which premieres on E! on September 11, will put even more of a spotlight on their personal life. “Doing a show allows us to get our side of the story out to the world,” the video vixen, who shares son King Cairo with ex-fiancé Tyga, explained. “I wanted to show people my personality, that I’m not just a pretty face or what some people paint me out to be: this bad person, this stripper ho. I want them to see me as a mom, a businesswoman, a growing being.”
Her fiancé is one of the people who already appreciates her for who she is. “He likes my work ethic, how I’m a hustler,” she said. “I don’t care if it’s one dollar or a thousand dollars, I’m going to go out and get it.”
